Travelling computer / tablet for a 6 week trip with a 7D
Jan 30, 2011

7D as a hobby [awesome camera]. Family trip around Europe for 6 weeks in summer meaning a lot of photos & video; in the order of 100+GB of data. Thats a lot of CF cards to invest in that I'll never really use again. So I'm thinking a cheap and cheerful laptop / netbook / tablet of somekind which I'll get more re-use out of; something under $350.

Main requirement :

  • offload pictures from my camera and store them.

Desired :

  • be able to preview.

  • basic editing [like crop, simple color correction] & upload to flickr / photoshop.com / facebook.

  • WiFi

  • HDMI capture - I don't think this exists yet...one day perhaps.

Keyboard / camera isn't important. But ability to run Flash / AIR apps is pretty key for me which kind of takes out the iDevice family. I'm leaning towards something like this, but its Android v1.6 :

Any suggestions or feedback much appreciated!
