OWC Envoy Pro SX is a Waterproof SSD That Transfers Up To 2847 MB/s

OWC has announced the rugged and compact bus-powered Envoy Pro SX Thunderbolt 3 SSD that is water, dust, and drop-proof, promises transfer speeds of up to 2,847 MB/s, silently cools, and is bus-powered.

The OWC Envoy Pro SX is touted as a portable SSD that can withstand “any condition” and its small size makes it a super-portable device that most will find suitable for a range of use cases. OWC says that the bus-powered drive is versatile enough to be used either for daily storage or for backup tasks and is fast enough to handle the demands of audio, design, video, and photography workflows. It is fully compatible with either macOS or Windows built-in encryption.

The Envoy Pro SX is quoted as capable of reaching sequential read/write performance speeds of up to 2847 MB/s (which was tested while connected to a Windows 10 PC equipped with a Gigabyte Technology motherboard with an AMD 3960X 3.8GHz processor and 32GB RAM running AJA System Test — 4K full resolution, 4GB file size, 16bit RGB codec, single file test).

Its rugged design allows the half-pound drive to withstand repeated drops (over 25 times) at several angles from a height of four feet and is water-resistant for up to 30 minutes at a depth of less than one meter. Basically, the drive should very easily survive drops from most tables and desks and won’t be fazed by splashes of water or full-on spills that cover the device in liquid.

The grooves on the exterior of the device are heat sinks that allow it to run without the need of a fan, and OWC says that even in the case of extremely long, intensive data transfers, speed performance should not dip thanks to the effective way it is able to cool itself.

Other small details include rubberized feet to keep it in place and an LED that shows power and activity status. OWC also covers the Envoy Pro SX with a five-year limited warranty.

The OWC Envoy Pro SX comes in four capacity options: 240 and 480 gigabytes as well as both one and two terabyte options. The lowest capacity costs $199, while the two terabyte maximum capacity runs $529. Any of the four options can be purchased directly from OWC’s online shop.

Photojournalist Quits Canon Philippines Ambassadorship After Backlash

Photojournalist and new addition to the Canon Philippines “Crusaders of Light” ambassador program Jilson Tiu has called it quits after Canon failed to apologize for what he and many others viewed as a lack of diversity within its program.

In an announcement on Facebook that was spotted , Tiu says that he chose to drop his ambassadorship after Canon did not apologize for its mistake. Despite working with the company for three years to get to the point where he earned a sponsorship, he doesn’t appear to believe it is worth it anymore.

The names on the list of ambassadors were revealed over the course of several days, and in that time Tiu says that he was in the dark on who would be named. After he was revealed, seven other ambassadors remained and he was asked by a colleague if one of them would be a woman. He replied that he was sure there was but was disappointed to be wrong.

“I’ve been quiet these past few days about the debacle regarding Canon’s ambassador launch campaign. I was even asked by my colleague if I know the remaining blurred portrait in the poster. She asked me if there’s a woman in roster, I said ‘yes, maybe, I’m sure,'” he writes. “And I was wrong.”

A post shared by Canon Philippines (@canonphils)

Canon’s public statement in response to the online backlash has been viewed by many as an insufficient non-apology. In it, Canon Philippines wrote that it “supports camera enthusiasts and content creators regardless of gender, culture, customs, language, or race” and that its “Brand Ambassadorship is continuously growing and always welcomes more members who are interested and committed. Members are evaluated through their professional expertise and consistent brand support.” The company ended by writing that it appreciated the feedback and was “listening.”

“To be honest I do not know what’s happening inside,” Tiu continues. “I am seeing the same window as you. As of today, I am dropping my ambassadorship with Canon Philippines, it’s been a long time coming (3 years) and this is the tipping point. I love Canon cameras, so far, it’s been my partner for a decade of my photography career. What I don’t like is they didn’t apologized for the mistake that they’ve done. They should make up for it and apologize publicly.

“Thank you Canon for the three years, I will continue to use your camera as a tool, but I don’t want to be an ambassador to a brand that doesn’t align with my principles. Paalam at salamat, magkaiba tayo ng daan na nilalakaran [Goodbye and thank you, we are on a different path].”
