Yes, there are. State Street Digital (this site has their banner ads - just click on one) has what appears to be a good selection of them. Choose "digital cameras" then "accessories" then "portable storage" and there will be a couple of pages of them. They range from 10GB to an amazing 80GB (the same as my desktop PC!) of hard drive storage in a device approximately the size of a PDA. Most seem to have a CF slot, but also have adapters available for use with other media. They also tend to use USB connectivity to upload/download with your PC, although some promise upgrades to Firewire and Ethernet.
The newer ones even include features like MP3 player capability, digital video recording, playback of images and video on a regular TV that's been hooked up (nice for taking photos to Grandma's house to show off), big LCD screens for picture/video review and all kinds of add-on peripherals. I haven't bought one yet. I'm still researching them, but I plan to get one. Have fun!..
The website is actually State Street Direct, not State Street Digital. Sorry. And it's the Imaging Resource page that has their banner ads, not the forum page...
Depending on the nature of your trip and especially if you already have one, it's not uncommon for folks to use a laptop to store/record CDs on the road. We take ours. Besides the photo uses we also use it for entertainment: playing games and dvds. Can come in handy in areas w/o cable/satellite and to keep the kids occupied. I guess you can consider arguing occupied...
Where can I buy a serial cable to connect my Fujifilm Digital camera MX-1200 to my Pc.
I live in the North London/Middlesex area...
Go on my site (in French !!) : http://ste.che.free.fr/index.php?source=10 Then click on Divers then Disque nomades and in the bottom on this page you will find 4 links (in english !!) for this kind of disk. I have got an Archos device and I am happy with it. Bye Stephane..
I'm tired of writing the same stuff over and over again.
Just click on the topic: As it list many models.
Portable hard drives for digital photography by W J McCracken or go to:.
Portable Storage Device is an accessory that store many images by having large capacity in Gigabyete term (usually more than the highest capacity of a single memeory/ flash card). Some of these models using existing labtop hard drive and some not (i.e. fixed hard-drive and not changeable) some model burn it onto a CD and some save on zip disk.
All of these models are portal so no need of the wall socket as they all powered by some kind of battery. Most models have it own CF card slot on the device, but some may need adapter. Some model allows you to listen to mp3 as it is just a hard-drive (e.g. iPod) and some can have it own camera able to attach to such Protable Storage Device (e.g. archos) to take pictures or even worked as a camcorder. Some have it own LCD screen so you can review delete and even play movie.
Depends what you wants really, but I must say that these are usually cheap in the PAST in terms of "cost per memory size", but nowadays CF cards are quite cheap. But then again it won't hurt just to have a look and calculate "cost per memory size" in some cheaper models (e.g as you may get yourself a bargain. Anyway judge it for yourself. http://www.xs-drive.com/.
