Acquiring Images

I always copy images onto a hard drive before attempting to open them. (Actually, I always copy the images onto two different hard drives. I may be paranoid, but I've yet to lose a digital capture.)

It's possible to connect the camera to your computer and actually open the images while they're still on the CF card. It's likewise possible to put the CF card in a card reader and open the images directly from the CF card. But “possiblel doesn't mean it's a good idea! It's possible to run a Porsche on kerosene or to perform brain surgery with a rusty Phillips screwdriver, and I consider either one about as advisable as opening images directly from the camera media.
