As a photographer and video maker myself, I always have to make sure I do have enough storage for my data. My normal usage monthly can simply up to 1TB. I always shoot for event and press conference. Usually event/press conference they need immediate photo. Not only I have to get the right shot (composition, focus, brightness, color, etc.) on the spot I also have to make sure I can deliver to them perfectly right after the event. Since usually those gig or press conference does not have time for me to edit my photos, I have to make sure I’m prepared.
One my main concern is time. Usually I have to transfer all my data right after the event. Afraid not, with the current technology, Western Digital has come out with a brilliant hard disk known as My Passport Wireless. Yes, you heard me. WIRELESS.
One thing I like about this WD My Passport Wireless is I can transfer right away and up to 8 people can download the data at the same time. WD My Passport Wireless have their own wireless. I own few different DSLR and some of it have Wi-Fi features such as Canon 6D. Means that I can directly transfer my data to the hard disk. What I usually did was my other camera such as Canon 5D Mark III and Canon 1DX who do not have Wi-Fi features, I put my SD card in the hard disk and use another SD to shoot and I repeat the same process once the SD card is full. Meanwhile, since the data is transferred to the hard disk, my client can easily access to the hard disk (with password protected) and download the photo. Some of them took the photo and did a live update.
