Nikon Ambassador Daniel Kordan Chooses Wise Advanced

Self-isolation seldom bothered avid outdoor adventurer Daniel Kordan. During the pandemic period, he led a squad of photographers on three long expeditions at Kuril Islands, Kuril Lake and Jack London Lake from July to September.

Daniel recalled the harsh conditions of those three expeditions when opportunities to backup photos are little. No connection, not possible to charge or copy photos – just pure wilderness with strong and cold weather.” He adds, “The most suitable test (of gears) for such long expeditions where you can’t even backup your images. But on the other hand I do not want to limit myself with small number of images to choose from, so I am taking at least 1TB of storage (a few cards) for such long expeditions plus 8 batteries for cameras. As the Z 7 has only one card slot, so it should be a super reliable and durable card like Wise. It was a great test for my equipment, no fails this time and over 600GB of photo archive with beautiful autumn colors of Russian Kolyma was brought back home safely.
I always was looking forward to working with a reliable brand of memory cards. It is essential that you feel your data is safe. It is also essential to have fast reliable cards, when you can write time-lapses, videos, shoot panoramas, wildlife without write delay. Normally for my work I try to choose the best. And that's a wise decision.
