couchpotato: There are plenty of 512GB or even 1TB USB flash drives out there.

Corsair Voyager GTX has 256GB and 512GB versions with 450MB/s read and 360MB/s write on the market for more than a year. How can Sandisk claim it has the highest capacity and fastest USB flash drive?

Had a supposedly good Corsair power supply that blew for no obvious reason, and when I mentioned that to other IT pros, they concurred, stay away from Corsair power supplies.
P.S. been building PCs for 30 years.

m_a_schuster: Highest capacity flash drive? 256 GB?
1 TB drives have been out there for a while.
At this same CES, Kingston showed 1TB and 2TB flash drives.

Agreed, fastest, maybe, but not highest capacity.
Someone's mis-quoting :
'world's fastest, highest capacity' should be
'world's fastest high capacity'

P.S. Kingston's HyperX Savage USB Flash Drive is excellent (and 512Gb version available)

Chaitanya S: Usb 3.1 is quite misleading marketing term. That drive still uses 5Gbps interface not full 10Gbps interface.

A lesson in how to confuse people :
USB 3.0 is now refered to as 3.1 Gen 1 (5 Gbps)
3.1 Gen 2 is max 10 Gbps
Most people getting a USB 3.1 port today will think it's an upgrade on 3.0, but if it's a 3.1 Gen 1, what's the difference? Apparently none.

Anyone in the USB standards consortium able to answer a couple of questions?

Is there a single difference between USB 3.0 and USB 3.1 Gen 1 ???

Would it have been so difficult to name USB 3.1 Gen 2 simply USB 3.2 ???

RavenSight: The best thing about this piece of gadget is the software it comes with, obviously this is a working solution for many hikers. Instead of carrying a camera and a bag of lenses you can just carry this and your smartphone, maybe a smaller camera and fixed lens for anything else.

Unfortunately, as I said further up, the software costs 144€ a year if you don't want their logo across your video, and only works by uploading to their website - arrrgh !

Biggest downer is that it seems you're dependent on their website for the App. You upload and create timelapse videos on the site. Free if you accept to have their logo as a large watermark and slower upload/downlod speeds, otherwise 144€ a year. Doesn't seem like you can use the app offline :-(

Spartan: Feels like this could be accomplished as a DIY with a go-pro, a pelican case, and a solar panel.

...and a phone to send images home...

GabrielFFontes: As a non-native speaker myself, I'm sure they could find someone with better English to present the video. There were parts when I was sure he had switched to French.

Anyway, creative product. What kind of sensor are they using?

And 16mpx should be enough for creative cropping for a FullHD or even UHD video.

I just hope it can survive outside forever! i.e. to be able to leave it in place for a whole year or more etc...

Lajos Hajdu: Interesting product but I find the usage examples in the video utterly unrealistic. On at least two occasions, the device is placed on a few square inches of rock from where it would certainly be thrown off by wind.

It does have a standard tripod screw thread for more secure fixing, eg with a gorillapod...

ovatab: video is misleading. no one will hike with big heavy solar powered brick in backpack.

LOL, 18x18x6cm, less wide that a sheet of A4; 850g, the weight of a good DSLR, or lighter than a litre of water. Maybe not for wimps... ;-)

By standing on the Shoulders of Giants: The halo is too strong. It looks like a vignette.

Same here, the effect is too strong for me, it distracts from the ship. But maybe non-photographers won't look at it like that ;-)

BadScience: ipads, iphones, cameras with lcd screens....are a complete nuisance at gigs and the anti-social muppets who wave their distracting gadgets in the air should be shot.

Not escorted, shot dead, but at the back of the hall so as not to get in the way.
