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.
Daniel has won several awards in photography: Golden Turtle’ 13 Nature nomination winner, National Geographic Russia contest 2013 winner, Best of Russia’13, ’14 ’15 winner, bestphotographer’13, Trierenberg Super Circuit award (best landscape photographer). He has publications in such magazines as Digital SLR Magazine, UK, Photography week, Photography Master Class, National Geographic, Discovery, Photoworld China, Digital Photo (Bauer Media) magazines. His key clients are Apple, Gazprom Neft’, S7 Airlines, RedBull.
Daniel spends most of his time in Norway at Lofoten islands and in Tuscany at villa Gaia, guiding groups from Europe, UK, US, Asia and Russia. He is an official Nikon, Gitzo and Lucroit ambassador.
