Nothing is worse than filling up your cards while shooting. At the start of the day you are fancy-free, shooting everything, and by the end of the day you have 5% of your space left and you have to deliberate every single shot choice based on available storage. You could drag a laptop, external hard drive, and power supply with you, but it's far easier to use a GNARBOX, which is a mobile download and backup solution that allows you to plug in your card and download it to a drive without a laptop.

With their new revision to 2.0, the device is focusing on not just downloads but also a complete mobile ecosystem to make your workflow faster. By working with Dropbox, Lightroom, Premiere, and a growing host of other applications, you can start your online backup, cull your raws, and even start the editing process in the field or on the trip back to base camp without waiting. As schedules and budgets get tighter, the freedom to work with just a phone or a tablet and a tool like GNARBOX without dragging around the weight of a laptop and an external drive will be a gamechanger for small crews, one mule teams, and action sports shooters.

Check out Adorama for the current generation GNARBOX for $399 or head over to the GNARBOX site to support the Kickstarter for GNARBOX 2.0.
