While traveling, I carry a number of Compact Flash and SDXC cards. I assume that one might fail partially (corrupted files) or completely (bricked card, non functional). Sooner or later Bad Stuff happens.
Each day (or after any significant effort when feasible), I download the latest images to my laptop. Downloading images to a laptop eliminates the risk of losing images due to card failure, to only those images not yet downloaded. Do not wait 2/3/7 days to download and backup an entire trip’s images!

DAP includes thousands of pages of exclusive coverage and high resolution Retina-grade examples detailing Canon and Nikon DSLR bodies and their lenses, with in-depth analysis of sharpness and contrast, color, bokeh, vignetting, distortion, MTF, and flare, behavioral and practical usage.
