I'm hoping you guys might be able to help me out. I'm going on honeymoon at the end of April to Antigua and, being the first time I've been there, I plan on taking plenty of photos/timelapses/videos. Before anyone pipes up, yes, I know it's my honeymoon, but the other half is (almost) as keen as I am when it comes to geeking out with a camera! We're only taking a wee point and shoot and my new GoPro that I ordered yesterday, so plan on having plenty of still, but also some videos. We decided against the SLR due to baggage limits and lugging it round standing out like a sore thumb!
So, on to my dilemma! I currently only own one 4GB class 6 SD card (my 400d uses CF, so never had much need for SD before this!). I plan on getting a couple more cards with more capacity, but figure they won't stretch to last the whole holiday. I wondered whether there was some kind of HDD out there that allowed me to back up my cards directly to it without the the need to take a laptop with me. I basically want to stick the card straight into the HDD, hit a button, back it up and re-use the card.
Having had a look round Google, all the options I see are either getting quite old now or are by brands I've never heard of. Does anyone know of any currently available decent options from trustworthy or proven manafacturers? Or can anyone suggest another option (other than taking my laptop!)
