If so, you might have had the headaches below.

What is MPortable

We are crazy fans of nice photo ourselves. As we had these headache problems every time on every travelling with cameras, all of us are interested in making a special designed portable device for the photographers like us, an amazing device to resolve all these problems. Then, Project MPortable started, on June, 2014. We'll develop a wireless portable SSD(Solid State Disk) to help photographers on the journey.

Features

Easy backup for digital photos


View your photos on pad&phone immediately

Wifi sharing with loved ones


Powerful app helps to organize your photos


High speed portable SSD


Battery Backup


What are the differences with other wireless routers( or hard drives)?


1. The ability to process raw files
MPortable has a powerful processor which can process the raw files. It will generate two JPEGs immediately for quick preview as a raw file is imported. One's size is 126*126,  another one's is 2056*1536. User can use the iPad App to preview his works easily.

Thumbnails(126*126)
 
A wireless routers is a pathway, not a processor. It can pass a raw file from an SD card to your phone, but if you have no app which handles raw files, you won't be able to preview raw files.

2. App designed for photographers
The app of MPortable is specifically designed for photographers . For example, the pick and reject features makes it is easy to sort the photos. 


3. The feature of Plug&Backup
When MPortable is connected with camera, the photos will be piped into the device automatically. No additional steps needed. 

Where are we now?

We've made a prototype of MPortable to test our design. The size of prototype is much larger than our current design. And the color is different. But it is good to test the running of hardware and other tech details.  (July 11,2014). 

We'll update the progress news in time as the project goes.

FAQ

Why do we use SSD instead of hard disk?

1. An SSD has no moving parts, so it is more likely to keep your data safe in the event that you drop your device or your system is shaken while it's operating.

2. SSD is much faster than hard disk.

3. Power saving. SSD uses less power while saving the data.

4. SSD is lighter than hard disk. It is easier to bring it in the bag.

These features are makes an SSD device very desirable for a photographer on his journey.


How much is the MPortable battery capacity?

We're still in testing phase. We plan to take the battery with a capacity of about 3200 mAH based on the our first round testing result. And it maybe become larger in the final release.

We designed MPortable to be so small that it can be easily carried. The current design is about 140mm*80mm*25mm in dimension.

Yes, it is compatible from iOS 6 & on.
