how can I store digicam pictures while on the go? Is there a device that can take a memory card directly and with the push of a button I can transfer pictures into that device?
Take a look on Newegg, they probably have some devices on there. And if you don’t feel like spending a lot on one, buy this and put a cheap, smaller capacity 2.5" HD in it - http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.639
Belkin do a transfer device for the iPod if you have one. Or most digi cam makers do one.
just get a large card for your camera and you’ll never run out of room…they do have portable card readers i believe though
laptop? =o i don’t see why you’d need more than 400 shots on the go but you could always buy another card
With 1GB memory cards selling for $20 (if you shop around and buy them on sale) I would suggest just getting a few extra cards too.
When I’m traveling the less I have to carry the better.
That is what the card reader is for.

There are many options. Many photographers like these types of devices. Personally, I would rather get more memory cards.
I second to that also.
- More cards
- Consider the purpose, and adjust the size of the image (smaller pic = save space = more pics)
- One-click storage devices like in posts 2 & 3
- Take yer laptop with you
and, TIP: donÂ´t waste you money on card readers…transfer the pics via USB. A cable came with your camera.
I have a couple of them …
Hyperdrive space http://www.adorama.com/ICDSAHDS040.html?searchinfo=hyperdrive&item_no=5 for $174.95. This is definitely worth it 'cos its the fastest reader for your memory cards and its got 32-bit copy verification system, so you can definitely be assured that you pictures have been copied to the Hard Drive
Smartdisk Photo Chute 20GB http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2175701&CatId=1028
Just pair this up with a fast card reader and you are all set. It fairly cheap too at $64.99
There are the memory card for digicam today that has up to 4GB capacity and is good for as long as you can take the pictures.
Memory card with 4 GB are fairly expensive compared to the Smartdisk Photo Chute 20GB which fljoemon mentioned…
If you are planning on taking lots of pics, then a couple of good sized cards like around a Gig or two ( = up to 4 GB total) and you are good to go. If you are gonna be away from your laptop for too long then the storage transfer device is cool.
ItÂ´s not too dramatic…I carry about 5 sticks…totalling about 4 GB. And sometimes I shoot over 1000 pix in a day…no problem. Batteries are a much bigger worry!
You are right but not all the digicams are disc compatible.
