Gnarbox 1.0 is a rugged backup device for photo and video enthusiasts who prefer to travel without a laptop. Unlike other portable drives, it allows you to edit and share your content while you're on the go, including in remote locations without Internet or cellular connectivity.

View, edit and share your camera's RAW photos, and edit 4K video in real time from your smart phone or tablet. Flash based hard drive features data transfer rates up to 4Gb per minute using the USB 3.0 Type-A & USB 2.0 Type A ports, as well as the SD and microSD card slots (SD, SDXC, and SDHC compatible). Use a card reader connected to one of the USB ports to upload files from CompactFlash (CF) cards.

The device pairs with the free Gnarbox Classic app available for iOS and Android mobile devices, and in addition to providing convenient backup of SD and CF cards, integrates with Adobe Lightroom CC and LumaFusion to help you create social media content quickly while on the go. The Gnarbox classic app also provides basic RAW image and video file editing capability.

The unit for sale is 1.5 years old, has only been used on about 20 remote photo shoots, performing flawlessly, and is in like new condition. I love this device, but am selling this since I've upgraded to a larger capacity backup device. However, I never filled up the device on any of my photo shoots, and it revolutionized my workflow, as well as provides me peace of mind that my valuable photos are safely backed up until I can reach my studio.

Hardware: Intel Quad Core, 1.92 Ghz CPU, 4 Core Intel HD Graphics GPU, Dual Band 300 mbps 802.11 a/b/g/n WiFi, 256 Gb Flash Memory, SD Card Slots and USB 3.0 ports allow 100 Mb/sec backup speeds & 270 Mb/sec export speeds. 1 amp output per USB port. Compatible with CF Card Readers, portable external hard disks (Mac and OSx), and can be used as an SSD hard disk connected directly to your PC or Mac.

Battery: 4000 mAh rechargeable lithium-ion, providing 4-6 hours battery life depending on how it's being used.

Image Support: RAW, TIFF, JPG, PNG can all be viewed and edited. Other formats may not be viewed or edited via the mobile apps, but the device will perform fast, flawless backups of all image types saved on a SD or CF card.

The Gnarbox 1.0 is built for the outdoors and remote adventure shoots. A rubberized metal enclosure, sealed I/O port-doors, and non-moving flash storage inside ensure files are safe when in rugged conditions.

Comes with original packaging, micro USB cable and user manual.

Gnarbox is a wonderful company that excels at providing tech support and are continuing to provide support of the version 1 device. This unit would be a wonderful addition to a serious amateur or semi-pro photographer/videographer who needs a reliable, fast & lightweight on-the-go backup device that also provides editing capability. Excellent option for 2-7 day remote photo shoots. In essence it's a little 1 pound workhorse computer allowing you to leave your laptop home.

Price is firm. FYI, this is a taxable purchase. If you are interested and don’t want to pay tax up-front, then you will have to provide your tax-exempt, direct-pay permit from the Minnesota Department of Revenue. I will only consider interest from photographers willing to meet in person within 1/2 hour of Little Falls.
