hi I have just bought a HD camcorder and the price of 16gb and 32gb SD cards is sending me to a spin. I wondered whether anyone had tried using a portable hard drive as an alternative (50£ for 250gb and as big as a card). I am going on a holiday and want to transfer the video from the SD card to a portable hard drive using one of the hotel PCs USB and thereby empty space for further shooting on the SD card! Can I do it with a Hotel /Internet cafe PC? Would I still have all the images/Video intact to download to my PC once I am back from the holiday? Any suggestions at all?
