Well I'm real close to ordering a 10D, but I have a question. What do you do with the images on your cards each night? Do you just download them to a laptop hard drive, burn them on a CD?

Do you just download them to a laptop hard drive, burn them on a CD?Tim, I've got a portable hard drive, mine's a "digital wallet" the company went banko or something so there is no support, but there are other makers out there with good units. What they are, essentially, is a laptop hard drive with battery and very small OS on a chip. I usually download my cards to that as the day progresses, then when I get a chance, or need the images, download from there to my main machine or laptop, from there, it's archiving by CD or now, via DVD burner..

That is, when I ever get round to archiving... :eek: I've got a bunch of images that I've yet to archive... not a good process trusting a hard drive but I've been lucky so far... :dunno:

For sure, the portable storage devices are a great idea, as you can shoot till the cows come home on one or two cards.. I've seen them as low as $250 lately for a 20gb drive..
