This one little piece of gear is a lifesaver! Originally I thought it was way overpriced

One item I wish I picked up was the Lacie Drive Mount to keep time machine backup running while shooting tethered. The next purchase I get will be this item to complete my digitech station.

- A little pricey, but that goes with everything in the photo industry
