Photo Backups

I get asked this question at least a hundred times a day. What is the best way to backup my pictures? My response is best way to backup pictures is the way that you select. Let me clarify this a little; as long as you are backing up in some way it is better then not backing up at all.

FROM CANON DIRECTLY: The EOS Rebel SL1 features an 18 megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor that performs exceptionally well in both bright and dimly lit shooting environments with an … Continue reading
