It happens to us all—we drop stuff, or spill something. Underwater photographers, who often will find themselves transferring or editing images in moist environments or close to water, will be reassured that butterfingers need not have catastrophic consequences.
Sony’s new highspeed external SSD drives are both dust and waterproof, and the USB-C port does not even require a cover to maintain protection. The drives can withstand being submerged in one meter of water up to 30 minutes, take a drop from three meters, and withstand 13,227 pounds of pressure. The drives come in 500 GB, 1 TB and 2 TB storage configurations. Pricing has not been released yet, and the drives are expected to ship in summer 2019.
