what if I lose my camera?

We are going on a vacation to the east coast of Canada this year.  We are seniors who do not have all the bells and whistles.  We have a camera and a newer 17 inch laptop.


I wasn’t planning on taking my laptop with us . How can I save my photos in the event I lose my camera?

In my opinion, it’s worth buying a $300 netbook (small laptop computer) just to store your pictures.  Otherwise, you need to buy several camera cards and have a safe place to keep them till you get back home.  OR – a special option is to use the Eye-Fi camera card which can be configured to use a Wi-Fi hotspot to transfer your pictures directly from the camera to a website for safekeeping till you get home.

Another option is a portable storage device like the Epson P-3000.  Our friend Glenn got one for his trip to Alaska and says it worked great.
