Copying images directly to an external HD from your camera
show user profile  soontekk
Hey guys, i'm off to Birma next week to shoot some nice images (i hope) and i am trying to reduce my kit as much as possible.
Does anyone know if it is possible to copy your images directly from your camera to a normal usb HD ?
I have been looking at those neat image backup/view devices but they are no option because of their insane price-range.

This is ghetto but might work
Use a micro sd and put it in a micro sd converter in the camera,
then use the internal mem in your phone to back up. Till you can get to a laptop or hotel

Can't do the phone thing lol but cheers for the effort :)
I already carry a load of cards but i really want to back up my work this time.
When i was shooting in the Libyan Sahara last december i had no means to back-up or even recharge my powerpacks, now i do but i'll probably be shooting 'loads' of pix.
Would have been nice to plug in a usb hd and select 'copy to external volume' or something :)

you could pretty easily write up some vb code to automatically copy down the files when plugged into a netbook.

shouldn't be more then a days worth of work.

A HDD is an USB Slave device, as is the USB on a camera. One of them needs to be an USB host. A datatank can do what you want. Otherwise you need a device which has two usb hosts which can be between the camera and usb drive. They exists but I haven't read any good reviews on them.

Image tank would be my 1st choice. But that requires a new purchase ;-)

the i-river H320/340 used to be able take files off a camera directly but it wasn't universally compatable, it is also getting on a bit to get your hands on one.

There are devices that do just this, maybe hiostu is right and they are called data tanks (never heard that term before though) but they are designed for in the field back up of photos. Most even come with a LCD on top so you can see the images you have backed up. Look on b&h photo or something and I'm sure you'll find them. Not overly cheap, but well worth it.

If you've got an iPad why not look at the camera connection kit?
