This drive is for use with a computer or any device capable of storing to an external hard drive. Most cameras will not directly store photos to an external hard drive. However, if you are bringing a laptop, the drive (1TB) will quickly store a lot of photos, video or anything else you deem to put on it. If you have access to the internet, I would also backup your photos there as an additional backup. If you do not want to bring a laptop and are looking for more camera storage, look for SD cards or a card compatible with your camera.
