I was forced to stop using DVDs when I bought my first 5D (6+ years ago) as the RAW files from big shoots meant I was using far too many discs. Since that time ext HDDs seems to be the best option still. I'm a bit nervous about how much data would be lost if a 2TB drive became corrupted, but I make sure to always double back up and touch wood, no problems so far

Son, Father, Grandfather. Camera to laptop, deleted from camera, laptop for working then before I do anything with the images I download the files to an external hard drive, then ever week I download the original files and any files I've worked on to a second external hard drive which is then stored in a separate room to the original external hard drive. Not like in the "old days" when you had prints and negatives or reversals and prints

7dayshop.com is good for cheap memory
