    I was looking at a way to use my iPad in the field to collect the raw files my my camera, cull for the keepers, and then move the keepers to storage off the iPad to make room for the next day's images.

    While the WD MyPassport Wireless looked like a viable candidate, it does not do dual band AC spec wifi. But the iDrive One product does do dual band AC wifi. Their IOS app will like you download all your IOS photo and video files to the device. You can get the device with either HD or SSD. And it looks like a cheaper price than the WD product. The downside of the iDrive One is that it does not have a battery. So you have to power it via USB to make it work. Personally I find that OK. I purchased one and experiment with it.

    Thanks for this. I would be interested in hearing your impressions once you've used the device. I'm looking for options like this as well.
