NCTech iSTAR Image Management
All data was stored on an SD card, which requires the files to be transferred onto a suitable computer for additional post-processing and viewing. I did not try any external hard drives for storage.
The iSTAR does have wifi connectivity for control and viewing over a smartphone, however this function was not evaluated during these tests, mainly due to concerns over battery life / reliability.
