I am thinking to buy this so I can backup my Memory Card if full during a shoot
and then format and shoot some more.
Is this safe and good idea to do with this?
Can you do it from Camera out USB to this gadget?

Would you do it , or is it safer to wait ,come back to studio backup on HD?

I also think maybe can be useful during travel.

Memory cards are so cheap today, so I dont see the point really.    And do you have that kind of usb in your camera house?

Make sure it doesn't corrupt raw files.  I once had a mobile backup hard drive with card reader from Vosonic (one of the earlier versions) for dumping my CF card on the drive. All raw files were corrupted, Nikon NX or photoshop couldn't read them anymore.  The 3 cards/files i transferred to the device were completely  lost.
Needles to say I returned the device to the store the day after and replaced it with a newer version that didn't corrupt my raw files.

For $500 you can buy few "8GB" cards or even "16GB" (I have been using SanDisk Ultra II for years, they are good, never fail).
I also prefer smaller cards like 4GB, so if card has problem you lose only part of your work (but it never happened).

I agree it doesn't make sense. You can buy cards of equal capacity for less and use them as back up or use them as primary cards for your camera. More options this way.

This is a backup unit for a computer.  you can't backup directly from your camera, so you will need a notebook to do so. 
So as long as you have to carry a computer with you, take a USB HD, much more cheap and reliable.

yes, i see now, no point.
 better to buy mem card,  you don't risk loss.
also no time wasted doing backup transfer.

How do you back up a memory card on another memory card?

I have a Jobo Gigaone, 40GB capacity, it's a HD with a card reader. It doesn't have the viewer sjlocke's has. I don't know if they still exist though (bought this 3 years ago).

Hahahahaha. I'm a frequent traveler and I always carry my laptop and an 120$ 1TB Iomega disk with me. My 16GB card is always in the cam and it is more than enough for a daytrip.
I am shooting since I was a kid, at 14, and using film (every time a fortune for me) made me very selective in my shots. Of course, doing video too will fill up your card fast.

I use a Dell Studio laptop for all my image processing and when I get a chance I check the images on a 'proper' monitor.  I find that I need the screen at the right angle, the same at which I calibrated it using Windows 7 calibration tool.  Not perfect, but works for me.
