Up your marketing game
Photo and video editors will know getting work done on-the-go is no simple task. One of the biggest problems photographers have is that you have to wait until they have their laptops in order to edit and upload most of your photos, which slows down the time it takes from getting the shot to sharing it.
While you have the option of carrying equipment with you, bulky laptops and other hardware can be cumbersome; not to mention, they can get damaged in the process.
Gnarbox offers a modern solution to this problem
Gnarbox is hoping to be the one-stop-shop for photographers on the go. It replaces the bulky laptop by putting everything a photographer might need inside a small, durable device and a smartphone app.
The product crams the power of a laptop into a portable, rugged device that can fit in your pocket. You can use it to review and edit your content right on your phone without relying on your phone’s storage or processing power.
It’s a mini computer, you guys
Essentially, Gnarbox is a mini computer that’s designed as a tool for backing up, viewing, sorting, and editing content. To use it, you simply plug your camera or memory card into the device (via USB3, SD, or microSD), connect your phone to the Gnarbox hotspot, and then open up the Gnarbox app.
Your photos and videos will be downloaded to Gnarbox, and you can organize the files, edit them in full resolution, and share them — all from within the app on your phone.
Because the unit has its own quad-core 2.2-GHz CPU, GPU, and 4GB of memory, all the work happens within the device, and it never taxes a connected phone or tablet’s processor. The Gnarbox serves content via a 300 Mbps Wi-Fi connection in their native resolutions and frame rates, and Gnarbox says the overall experience is speedier than other camera-to-phone connections.
Plus, is the entire Gnarbox unit is waterproof and weather resistant, and the rechargeable battery can last six to eight hours.
Originally built to make GoPro better
Co-founded by Tim Fees, Gnarbox was originally meant to be a way to allow people to get content off their GoPro cameras. However, Gnarbox’s application applies to other camera users as well.
Anyone from vacationers who want to share photos and videos while on their trip, to pro photographers who need to quickly edit and send content to clients can use Gnarbox.
