Transfer video clips via USB on wifi buoy

With the recent update enabling high quality 1080p recordings on the Trident itself, transferring the video clips over wifi takes a very long time. Will it be possible, in the future, to transfer via the USB-port on the wifi buoy?


I am also very interested in a USB port to PC data transfer capability. I typically do all my video editing on my PC and having to transfer to my device and then to the PC is one more step.

Hi @balder.matt, good questions in your post and I am interested to hear the answers. If it’s not too off topic, could you mention what video editing program you use on your PC? I need to export videos from Trident to my PC (or my Macbook!) for editing for the first time, and I’m looking for recommendations for the best way that users have found to do this. Cheers!

I have just started dabbling with editing in the last year and am using the free VSDC editing software. It works pretty good but I see myself getting into Adobe Premier Pro in the future.

Great, thanks for the tip :+1:

I’m just posting a follow up on this topic. I would still very much like to see this functionality in the future. I’m wondering if someone from Sofar could chime in about this and if there is any plan for it in the future.

I’d like to know as well. The WiFi transfer is very slow, and the usb connection would be a lot more convenient if the speed (and implementation) was there.

If you’re transferring the 1080p files through your device, have you seen the posts about just connecting the Trident to your home LAN WiFi to transfer the 1080p files to your laptop / desktop? Searching the forums for Filezilla should provide some info. You can use an INSULATED button maget to turn on the Trident without connecting the tether or charger.
