Buy it, use it, break it, fix it,
Trash it, change it, mail – upgrade it…
Some Christmas presents I thought I would recommend for the photographer/video-maker.
My Passport Wireless – WD – 500GB, 1TB, 2TB.
So this little, lightweight, wireless, hard drive will hopefully make my life a bit easier. Connection with my phone, tablet and computer trough a wi-fi connection.
So when I turn it on I can access everything on it.
Actually, I’m not so much for wireless connections but this one is gold when it comes to back up. It has a SD-card port so you can just put the card in and press the WP button and it creates a folder on the drive with all the photos or films on the card.
I did read that it was “hours” slow and I was a bit worried about the transfer speed but It’s really O.K.
I mean how fast must everything always go? Sometimes I think people (me among these people) put a unrealistic demands on their product when I comes to speed, as long as they work minutes or seconds maybe shouldn’t matter?I rather have it backed up than not. So I can wait and it’s not that much slower as if I would have to put up my computer and transfer it there. Aaand… I will immediately have it up on my tablet and/or phone to show my clients, also if I want to publish something on a social network it’s available.
(ofc, you should get what you pay and sometimes it has to go fast while working and bla, bla, bla…. but that discussion belong somewhere else)
A minus is of course that is doesn’t have a rugged exterior but just have it safe in the camera bag and also just buy a small bag to have around it if you want to be extra careful.
Works like a charm…
