If you need a fast and portable SSD to keep your new photographic masterpieces safe, there are plenty of options to choose from. But the new “Tuff nano” series from CalDigit may be particularly well suited to underwater shooters—as their rugged credentials mean they can survive an accidental drop into a rinse tank!
As well as boasting an IP67 rating (the ability to be submerged in a meter of water for 30 minutes), the USB-C SSDs are capable of 1055MB/s read speeds and 900MB/s write speeds. Currently available in a 512GB capacity, the drive weighs just 2.6oz (74g) and measures 2.99in x 2.14in x 0.57in (7.59cm x 5.44cm x 1.45cm). The Tuff nano works with macOS, Windows, ChromeOS, iPadOS, and Linux devices.
Available in red, green, blue, and black, the 512GB drive costs $150 on the CalDigit online store.
