Shooting Small Jpegs

Traveling with a DSLR that uses both CF and SD cards may allow you the utmost flexibility in capture format and processing requirements. My Nikon allows me to save full Raw files to the CF card while also writing Jpegs to the SD card. An added bonus is the ability to control the size of the Jpeg files, with a setting of Jpeg Small.

In my case I stored them as small jpegs that would be easy to edit from my IPad Mini and also require minimal storage requirements. For my 8 week trip I used more than a dozen CF cards but only a single 16gb SD card. I was able to use the IPad Mini to cobble together a workflow that allowed me to do basic edits and then social media sharing of images to Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and my Squarespace blog.

I am still searching for the optimal way to do this processing and once I get it sorted out I will do a separate post on UL travel photograph with an iPad.

Snapseed (Nik/Google) is by far the best editing app on the Ipad
