300D questions / problems..
I just got my 300D that I intend to use for jumping. The camera itself takes great pictures and is very useful- but my big problem is that i have a horrible transfer rate to my laptop
If i am going to use if for the TandemVideos I do- i need to obviously move photos from the camera to the PC. Unfortunetly right now it takes over 50minutes to load a 512MB CompactFlash(I) card through USB through the camera.
I cant figure out right now what the problem is. My laptop is a 1.3CelMobile(one of the new processors.. bought 6months ago. )
Let me throw my .02 cents worth too! Think about some kind of external CD/DVD burner that will burn a disc directly from your CF card. There are several out there, the advantage to me is then you have an immediate safe archive of your digital photos.
Personally I've experienced too many hard drive failures to trust them. At some point your going to have to do it anyway. If your going to do tandems and offer CD's before the customer leaves it's going to b e much faster than transferring the images to your computer, then burning a CD.
That item is on my "buy" list prior to our season starting her in the frigid north!
