I was lucky enough to be on a wonderful island in the middle of the Indian Ocean for a 10 days scuba diving holiday. I had my new GoPro 4 with its very expensive ultra fast 64 GB micro SD card. After the first dives, it became obvious that my card was too small. I had a few old SD cards and some pendrives with me. And a tablet... No laptop or computer.

1 Teensy-LC 12 USD

2 SD connectors 6 USD
