I'm new to iPad 3, got mine on the 16th, & have read many articles on external storage for tablets. My problem is I'm new so I need to understand my iPad 3 better. Here's what I know (or think I know!). We will be in low internet access areas for 3 weeks. This rules out iCloud. My DSLR camera takes 1080P AVC video & RAW/JPEG photos up to 25Mb each. I'm estimating 125-150Gb of additional external storage. My iPad is 64Gb & I don't want to use it as storage. Hyperdrives (HyperDrive iPad Hard Drive) are expensive but seems to be the best option. Hyperdrive must have its own app to avoid using iTunes. I've read about satellite hard drives (GoFlex Satellite Wireless | Seagate) but I believe I cannot transfer directly from the SDHC card to the WiFi hard drive. I believe the data must 1st be loaded to my iPad, then WiFi-ed to the satellite hard drive. Am I wrong? (I'm going on vacation to relax, not do the same step twice.) Some SDXC cards are big enough but are expensive too. Several smaller 32Gb cards would work & that might be the best option. Anyway, I need to buy something & need advice which way to go. I do have other external drives at home but it's my understanding these wont work without hacking my iPad. Don't want to void my warranty!
