On my P&S camera, there is no option for RAW so the only option is to save the highest quality JPEGs. I don't take a whole lot of pictures with this camera, though. It's mostly just used at the pools and waterparks because it's waterproof. I'm hoping the photos from this camera won't fill the memory on the tablet too quickly.

Truth.

My process is similar to yours. I work from home so the safety deposit box is more convenient and more importantly less than five minutes away. I drop off a backup of all my work files ever two or three weeks and store any new "personal" photos on those drives. Then every 3 months I take my personal offsite drive home, update it and drop it back.

For the most part. while on vacation, I am risking it with just a single copy and no back up.
In my case our last trip was my nieces first trip to WDW and they invited me along so the safety of those photos were even more important to me. I also figured their was a good chance that might have been my only visit to WDW! Of course two years latter we are returning (June 2013)!

I wish my canon t4i had the option of selecting a smaller sized jpeg, but the RAW/jpeg option only offers the full resolution. I've thought about getting an Eye-fi in the past, I may want to look into them again. I do like the fact that more and more cameras are offering built in wi-fi now.

Our Disney World/ Vacation procedure goes as follows.
Leave the park.....remove cards ( 32gb each camera) put fresh cards in( freshly formated)....Copy the cards to the laptop and import to lightroom..... Copy the laptop files and backup Lightroom catalog to an external hard drive......remove the hard drive and put it in the rear storage compartment of our SUV.....then we format the cards used for the previous day, getting it ready for the next rotation..... We normally have 3 camera's with us so we rotate 9 cards ( 3 for each camera)......... So far we have not lost any pictures, yet........knock on wood!

Also invest in a usb 3.0 card reader..... Super fast!!!!!

I take a laptop, 500 gig portable storage and a 1 tb portable storage. every night I back them up to both and on the laptop, 3 copies. When I get home I transfer them to a 1 tb internal drive that only my media goes on and an external 500 gig mybook. I then edit what I want to edit and upload all the "keepers" to my smugmug.
