What’s the best way to back up SD cards without a laptop?
1

I’ve recently moved to Fuji after a lifetime of pro shooting with Nikon.

In the past, on important photo shoots away from home, I always backed up my cards each evening, keeping the images on both the camera card and the copy on my laptop. (This conservative approach was driven by one unrecoverable card failure and one card accidentally dropped off a bridge.)

My goal in moving to Fuji was to reduce the weight and bulk of my gear, so I’ve been trying to find a back up solution that will allow me to keep my laptop at home. So far, I haven’t found a small lightweight solution that would allow me to copy the files from the camera SD card onto another card.

The X-T2 has a card copy function that works, except it either copies all of the files (including the files already on the target card), or manually selected ones. I would like to incrementally back up only the files that haven’t been copied yet. Manually selecting hundreds of files is just too tedious.

I’ve seen small, battery powered harddrive back up units, but I don’t trust spinning drives in rough environments.

Any suggestions?
