Very nifty, but could have used cleverer material finishing choices
December 17, 2018
I bought this ahead of a hiking trip and it arrived right on time. I was very interested in the OTG capability and that was the first thing I tested. it performed impressively in that department. I shoot with both SD and CF cards and it gobbled them up with ease. I was able to copy files to my phone's expanded memory and even do some light editing on the phone.
My only gripe with it was that the silver finish looks good for about 2 mins. That's the time between unpacking it and putting it into a typical photographer's gear bag. The scuffing and rubbing off of the powder coating/finishing is frankly, annoying. It looks 5 years old when I've only used it for just over month. They should have used a more ruggedized coating and definitely gone for a black finish. I was tempted to return the item just for that but in terms of functionality, it works well so I might just keep it but if I do, I shall more than likely respray it black.
