As photographers, we tend to ask a lot from our hard drives; big capacities, fast transfer speeds, and the ability to stand up to being thrown in the bottom of our kit bags.
It comes as no surprise then to learn that almost every photographer has a tale of the spectacular death of hard drive and the loss of its contents.
It only has to happen once, and from then on, you’ll know to invest in a hard drive that’s a little tougher than your usual slimline portable. What you really need is something tough, rugged and above all else, waterproof or at least water-resistant.
OWC has announced the new Envoy Pro FX waterproof HD. This new tough portable hard drive offers everything photographers and videographers could want.
The new drive has been designed to be used with the latest kit and software offering the blistering speeds made possible by the USB Type-C and Thunderbolt interfaces, up to 2800MB/s.
Those speeds make the OWC Envoy Pro an ideal choice for storing and editing your files on location.
To ensure that the drive and your files stay safe, OWC has designed the enclosure to be as tough as possible, with dust, drop protection and waterproof certification.
As the drive has been designed to be used on the move, the new OWC Envoy Pro features built-in Bus power, which means that it is powered through USB Type-C or Thunderbolt’s data connection with no need for connected power.
Every aspect of the OWC Envoy Pro hard drive has been designed to enhance performance. The charcoal grey housing is IP67 rated and has MIL-STD810G certified military-level drop toughness.
