The Challenge: Download and display photos as quickly as possible

This photographer juggles 2-3 cameras and shoots over 1,000 photos for every wedding with up to 30 GB of data. With the invention of the tablet, this photographer can now show the guests at the reception some of those excellent shots from earlier in the day. While the bride and groom love this option, it also means finding time to download all the pictures, doing a quick selection, and loading the tablet. There isn't a lot of time between the ceremony, formal shots, and the reception and shaving off time in any way means more time to breathe and focusing on the day and not waiting for technology.

The Solution: Fast Card Reader and light and compact stand

8420.jpgThe USRobotics All-in-1 USB 3.0 Card Reader with dual SD card slots replaced the old USB 2.0 card reader. Used with a laptop with a USB 3.0 port, the photographer was able to simultaneously download from 2 SD cards and 1 CF card with amazing speed while driving from the first location for formal images to the ceremony. The downloads from the first half of the day were done almost before leaving the parking lot. With a few extra minutes to look at the images, the photographer was able to choose 10 images to load onto the tablet to show later at the reception.

5511.jpgWith the tablet preloaded, the photographer needed an easy way to prop the tablet up without taking up a lot of space. The USRobotics Slim Tablet Stand was small and light and easily fit into the camera bag until the perfect spot was found at the reception bar where the guests waiting to get a drink could then look at the images while in line. The tablet stand's rubber end caps kept the tablet stable and secure while guests bumped the bar and touched the screen.

The Benefits

With time as a commodity, the USRobotics USB 3.0 Card reader shaved precious minutes off the download time allowing the photographer to focus on choosing the right images instead of waiting for downloads to complete. With images chosen and then loaded onto a tablet, the USRobotics Slim Stand made the perfect companion to provide the latest and greatest marketing tool at the reception without breaking the bank.
