Budget Travel Backup Solution for Photographers
I love photography and I’m paranoid about losing my photos. At home I have several backups (offline and online), but when I traveled I had to hope that the SD Cards wouldn’t lose any data. That’s why I use some inexpensive components and combine them with some software.
This is my budget travel backup solution for photographers.
- RAVPower FileHub V2
- A backup script to automatically backup the sd cards to an USB drive
- 2 Military grade anti-shock external hdd’s
1 Transcend StoreJet M3
1 Transcend StoreJet 25H3P
- Anker Ultra Slim 4 Port — Including Power Adapter
You can get all these for around $200 for 1TB of redundant security, or less if you get a good deal. Which is what other solutions on the market start without any storage.
The FileHub is neat device as it is also a small powerbank — you can strt a short backup session without the need of a plug.
The script is based on another solution, but I had to clean it up a bit and change it for my use. I also added a setup guide and some additional notes on how to use it. It’s fairly easy to install and use, so don’t be afraid 😉
