On the Road Backups made Simple

Works with the newly released GnarBox 2.0. V2.4 fixes compatibility with iOS 13. This app and device make it extremely easy to backup and review images from your iPad on the road in Field mode or while at home in Home mode. You are download your files from the GnarBox 2.0 to two separate locations at the same time. You can setup presets to store your files into a folder structure that fits your unique workflow. It is nice that you can modify both the SSIS of the GnarBox as well as the password to ensure the privacy of your data.

Has Promise to be a powerful backup solution

The app is still in its early stages, but it already has the capability to reliably backup multiple SD cards from any camera. The process for setting up automatic backups is fairly simple and straightforward, although a few options need better explanation. I’d like to ability to set up deduplication of photos if, say, I changed the rating of a photo using the Selects app. I don’t want to have a second copy imported from the card the next time I back up. Overall, if you value having a backup in the field, especially if you have a camera with a single SD card slot, the Gnarbox 2.0 is an ideal tool.

Great thus far

Being able to backup sd cards quickly, accurately and easily on site is great in itself, but the Safekeep app also lets you do really crucial tasks like rename files, customize folder structure and even transcode media before even plugging into a computer which means I can start processing immediately before even driving home from the shoot — just saves a lot of time in post and peace of mind before I leave location
