My wife and I are traveling for 25 days in June, on an African safari to Botswana and Namibia.
I KNOW EXCITING RIGHT!!!
I just bought a spiffy new camera – my first SLR; I’ve used iPhones for photography exclusively for the past 12 years. The camera of course stores photos on an SD Card.
I’ll be traveling without a laptop. I’ll just have my iPhone and 2018 non-Pro iPad.
How do I store all the photos I take in Africa, until I’m home? I’m thinking (1) Buy a half-dozen 128-gig SD Cards. Will that even be enough? I know that depends on how many photos I take, but what do people typically need for several weeks of photo-friendly vacation? (2) Get an SD Card to Lightning adapter, load the photos onto the iPhone, and then let them upload to iCloud. I expect to have WiFi access daily or at least several times a week – but will that upload take so long that I’ll effectively be stuck in one place waiting for the upload to finish?
BTW, I think international roaming charges may be $10/day, which would be $200 for my trip, so it might make more sense to get a local SIM. But I’ve never done a SIM swap and don’t know how practical that will be.
