Portable storage is a must for all us photographers and filmmakers if we want to store all those huge RAW photos and 4K (or even 6K) videos. I guess we all want a large portable drive, with fast read and write speed, but at a decent price. Enter HyperDisk – it’s a tiny SSD, with up to 1,000 MB/s read and write speed, with the price starting at $85.
This is interesting for your iOS folks. There’s a new Kickstarter in town for something called the HyperCube. It’s an interesting little device that sits in between your phone’s charger cable and the USB socket and provides a microSD slot as well as a USB slot for plugging in a hard drive, SSD or flash drive.
When it hits retail (which won’t be for a while), it’s going to be $49, although it’s as low as $29 right now through the Kickstarter campaign.
According to a report on 9to5Mac, it looks like Apple might be starting to loosen their grip on external storage with iOS devices. New details shared from the Worldwide Developers Conference, seems like apps will be able to access external storage directly, just like Android, rather than having to import through the photos app and store on the camera roll.
