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.Marcus Tari

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.Marcus Tari

(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.
