for the benefit of everybody toying in their mind with this issue;
but the apacer ; theyre foolproof

my wife and i visited the states in sept/oct 2004 and took about 12 000 photos; all of them backed up on CD's ; the backup copy mailed home, the original stayed with us;

the CD's are your transparency/negatives - you have no physical neg with electronic solutions- follow the threads by people who have lost ALL their photos on a HDD backup

NO worries in airports about stray magnetic fields

NO worries about computers - they always go wrong when they can

NO having to find an internet cafe every day - that was hard even for emailing ; and this is the states i 'm talking about ; not asia or other remote parts of the globe

WE had a 12 V car charger to charge the 2 Li ion batteries as well as universal AC charger

we just backed up every night 2 cd's for each 512 card


400 CD's later............

still happy

though the thought of a dvd burner is enticing........
