Software & Accessories / Re: how to backup photos in the field?
« on: January 12, 2015, 02:01:42 PM »

Hi chihiro

I was in a similar situation a few month ago - only limited capacity and no chance to take a laptop with me. Finally I tested a few possibilities and found one which fits best my idea to backup images.

My own solution in force is that I use my 5DIII and/or 7D plus a Samsung Tablet Pro 10.1 (SM-T520) in combination with two 64 USB Sticks. Workflow is to copy my CF card images via a samsung USB to micro USB cable in combination with my Hama 5-1 CF card reader to the tablet (tablet with micro sd of 64GB). As side remark, Hama plus USB to micro USB works fine in terms of power - tested a few times an no issue luckily. Afterwards I copied the images from the tablet to both USB sticks to have a three time backup. In regular cases 64Gb shall be enough for a regular holiday.

It's not the perfect solution, but from a weighting topic absolutely Ok.

Hope this helps and is another idea to follow up. In case you might need more information - drop me a feedback.



If you're working with Flickr you can create an album restricted to friends/family, thus no public content will be visible. Afterwards you can share a guest pass with a dedicated link to the album and share with teh other families. Access only with this mentioned guestpass which can copied and send out to each who's interested.

with respect to your initial request reqarding some main spots in Switzerland I would like to recommend hereafter mentioned destinations and/or cities. Not sure if you're interested in more landscape or the typical city view with some museums and cultur, but however I will cover both. In addition I'm not sure about your original home country - Switzerland is small and you can reach normally each destination by train within 2-4 hours / car is not much faster.

Traveling in Switzerland is really easy and for sure in general safe. Take care about the typical security and safety hints in foreign countries, but no worries. The public transport is perfect to catch each destination by train, bus or some other local transporation like ships.

- Geneva // walk around in the city itself and enjoy the waterfront with the Jet d'Eau as large water fountain - maybe a short stop in the cathedral saint pierre or the UN part of the city
- Berne // catch up depending on the weather conditions the ship across the lake lucerne, take a stop in Lucerne itself to watch the chapell bridge and afterward you can climb up to Mount Rigi or Mount Pilatus for a breathtaking view from the mountains
- Z├╝rich // from my point of view a typical business city - explore lake zuerich and the city itself for some old historical buildings and museums

As add-on if you have one or two days time left - travel to Jungfraujoch as top of europe (but take care - typically tourist spot but still great) or travel to Zermatt and drive to the Gornergrat with a breathtaking view to the Matterhorn.

I'm living there and you can check my flickr account for some capture from the mentioned areas.
