Epson is good. I have a P2000. But the new devices P3000 and P5000 are the newest models.

Canon is launching two new models M30 & M80 in Europe Q1 2007

I just saw the review in the EOS Magazine. Looks really nice, but is it very expensive, and only in Europe, not in the US? That's sad.

Sounds like the 504 is the way to go if you have the money then. Is there just a USB port directly on the 504 or did you have to use some other cords to actually put it together?

I have one complaint about my FlashTrax - it will not work with a CF card over 1GB. That is no longer satisfactory and there is no firmware upgrade available to correct this difficiency.

Mine does fine - I just used the pushbutton backup to pull photos off a 4 GB Extreme III and a 2 GB ultra II last night. It's slow, and I suspect that if you're running it on battery it might try to power down before it finishes transferring everything, but mine, at least, does work, and I can review my 5D RAW photos on it too.

Just did some research (OK, online), and the new Vosonic VP8870 Multimedia Viewer Recorder looked really great to me. Try www.mydigitaldiscount.​com/ (external link) as a source . . .

I would just buy a cheap Netbook. Weighs more and takes up more space but ultimately very versatile.

You are probably right for storage on the road. Tyhe problem is that you'd have to load a RAW viewer of some sort, and those netbooks are not overly graphics friendly, but then again, they can't be much worse than a 4.3 inch screen. I will certainly look into that option, especially ince I was looking for one anyway, for reasons of e-mail access on the road.

no problem. i use irfanview, which is a free program. great for viewing, converting to jpeg and minor editing.

I use one of these: http://www.amazon.com …TF8&qid=1247329​366&sr=8-8 (external link)

CF card slots straight into the left hand side and once you've copied over (about 15-30mins for a 4gb Extreme III) you can review your shots on there (jpg only - I shoot raw & jpg).

Think it's discontinued now so grab one while (if) you can. The price in the link I sent is a bit much maybe - paid about $370 for mine less than 2 years ago.

Also plays movies and mp3s but I only use it for on-the-go photo storage.

I just got myself a netbook PC. 160gb of drive space and you get a full computer to get online.

I had one of these things a couple of years ago, it was 3"x3"x.5" think and the LCD couldn't review images but it did have 20gb. I got it for less than $100 and it worked great until I really needed it. Saturday night after a race in a hotel room and I couldn't get it to charge, and the battery was dead. I guess when I plugged it in the night before it didn't charge either.

So I was up early on Sunday morning waiting in the Frys parking lot looking at my options. More CF cards, Epson media device, or a 15" Compaq refurbished laptop for $400. With 60gb HD, 1gb of ram, 1.5ghz it's nothing special but worked great. I found a Kinkos and plugged it in and started coping and made it back to the track before the start of the first race.

I still have and use the laptop all the time even for my other business, I threw in another GB of ram and it enough to copy, review, & post photos and I can even use AutoCAD.

Agree ... times have changed since 2006. For many who are travelling the photo-storage route has had its day. Good netbooks can be had over here for £150 and up and are a way better solution. Mine weighs 1.1 kg, has XP, a decent enough screen, excellent keyboard, bluetooth and all the other benefits of a wireless laptop.

Of course, wouldn't be right for me to agree with Ed, so I prefer FastStone Image Viewer or Bibble pro 5.0 on mine for loading, viewing, classifying and, if necessary, editing shots. The main issue with netbooks is screen quality and calibration. I just don't think they're up to editing much beyond cropping for that reason.

Yup, Faststone for me as well. I do have Lightroom installed on mine, but I don't think I'll ever be using it.

I use an Epson P-6000 multimedia photo viewer. Ideal to have when out taking a multitude of photo's in the field and to back it up to a portable external hard drive. Device is small and easy to pack in comparison to a PC to lug around.

I have Epson P-4000 which is great, but after i upgraded to 1DsIII and Hasselblad i was worry that P-4000 80GB will be not enough, so i went with Vosonic VP8860 500GB, as a space it is incredible, but as functions or performances or features i really miss Epson.
