No, the p-2000 does not have that capability. When I purchased my Epson, the main competion were these devices that had flip up screens and they just didn't seem to have the clarity and resolution that the Epson had. looking at the website for the device you are considering would lead me to believe that another manufacturer has come up with a device to really compete with the epson and at a similar price. I would suggest that if the opportunity is there to hold both and see them side by side, but the Digital Foci looks like a great little unit.

Looks like the Epson is the clear winner. Anyone ever seen or use the Digital Foci Picture Porter Elite? I just wanna make sur that I checked out all options.

I have the Digital Foci Media Buddy unit. It's pretty good for being the cheap one from them. I would probably still go with the Epson unit over them because it's a much more recognizable company but if it was much cheaper to do the Digital Foci I would personally save to give it a shot.

If you like updated gadgets, you should wait a little longer because Epson just released the P-3000 (40 gigs) and P-5000 (80 gigs)at Photokina. Also you might want to look in to Canon's new portable media player, which similar but made with by Canon with their EOS looks, M30 (30 gigs) and M80 (80 gigs). One draw back is that the Canon is only on version 1 while Epson is on version 3.

Do you have one?

I just saw it for the first time, and it sounds pretty sweet.


Thanks for looking!

Also don't forget to look at Wolverine/Vosonic units they have a lot of features at a slightly lower price and sometimes slightly faster card to device speed then comparable Epson. Not to mention higher capacities available.

I have a 129 gb on order, but have used both the Jobo and the epson. The Jobo transfer speeds make the choice a no brainier

Stick with a known maker and unit - I shoot for a living and 20 gig is a hell of a lot of photos for anyone.
Unless your trying to beat the next wave of bigger-better-faster, get a good functional device and use it for years. (P-2000) for me since it came out.

Chiming in with a slightly different viewpoint...

First, I own and use an Epson P-2000 because I *wanted* a storage device with a display to use on field shoots until I get my portable viewing/printing/sales rig together.

Second, if you don't need the viewing capability, save yourself some money and get yourself a standalone external hard drive.

As others have said, it depends on what you need it for.

I LOVE my P-2000 and would recommend it (and the subsequent newer models) if it's features are what you're looking for.

Best,

Tom D
