What would you an­swer if asked: “What is a pho­tog­ra­pher’s best friend?” In the age of dig­i­tal photography, the an­swer is stor­age and con­nec­tiv­ity. Noth­ing is more priceless to a pho­tog­ra­pher on the field than the abil­ity to backup their pho­tos fast and se­curely, and hav­ing ef­fort­less ac­cess to those pho­tos. Most of the best pho­tos in the world are taken in ar­eas where there is no In­ter­net con­nec­tiv­ity, and a pho­tog­ra­pher who de­pends solely on cloud stor­age in this sit­u­a­tion would find them­selves in trou­ble, that is un­less they have a WD My Pass­port Wire­less with them. More than just a por­ta­ble hard drive, the

– which comes in 1TB and 2TB – has fea­tures that are un­matched in its class. The drive of­fers a built-in SD card slot, which al­lows the pho­tog­ra­pher to backup or trans­ferer pho­tos taken with any of their cam­eras, thus al­low­ing for on-the-go du­pli­ca­tion of their work, or free­ing up the mem­ory card for more pho­tos.

Once the pho­tos are copied into the drive, they can then ac­cess them wire­lessly. Up to eight de­vices can connect to the My Pass­port Wire­less at any one time to browse and edit pho­tos with­out the need of messy ca­bles. The My Pass­port Wire­less can also stream videos, pho­tos and mu­sic usic to con­nected TVs, me­dia play­ers, gam­ing con­soles and other ther DLNA/UPnP de­vices. As an added bonus, the My Pass­port Wire­less can also func­tion as a se­cure Wi-Fi hotspot and share In­ter­net ac­cess cess with other con­nected de­vices upon join­ing a wire­less net­work. For those who still pre­fer ca­bles, the drive is equipped with a USB 3.0 port. The built-in 3,400mAh bat­tery, tery, on the other hand, of­fers six hours of con­tin­u­ous video stream­ing and up to 20 hours of standby time.
