As travellers, bloggers and photographers we need to have some form of processing power available. Now I like to travel light, so over our last few trips I have been working to whittle down the hardware I am carrying, but still be able to process photos and blog. Of course doing this effectively requires a combination of hardware, software and connectivity. It’s the hardware that carries the weight and luggage space, so the discussion about the rest can come later.
So far I have been able to cut my processing hardware down to 5 key items (in addition to my camera gear of course):
- An Android mobile phone – the most important device;
- An iPad 3 – useful but not vital;
- A bluetooth keyboard – the most important accessory;
- An OTG hub to connect Android with SD cards, memory sticks and so on;
- A backup battery.
Out of those 5 items it is quite feasible to do everything you need while travelling, including photo processing, blog posting, communicating, making notes on the go, reading books and listening to music.
