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.

I have an Epson P-5000 for use with my 40D and G9. It's great for off-loading my CF and SD cards at the end of the day when I travel. Best part is that you can do some editing and get rid of shots that just didn't turn out, and pass the thing around to share your photos.

Surprisingly, all the Epson viewers currently do not support RAW format for the 5DmkII. They put out a firmware update earlier this month (July 2) which added several additional RAW file support for Canon cameras (XSi, XS), but so far, no RAW support for the 5DmkII. :(

Which tasks are, of course, easier and better, respectively, with a netbook.

I use a Hyperdrive and have been very satisfied, and have given them as gifts. If you put in your own laptop HD, it's not expensive at all. The instructions to do it are in a thread here on the forum.

When I said Editing, I meant only deleting shots that did not turn out, and not some level of post processing. When I am travelling, I do NOT want to spend my time post processing images. I save that for when I get home.

Yup, that's what I meant. The larger screen of a netbook makes it easier to cull duds. It also makes it a lot easier to share the goodies in the bar in the evening.

Although I have Lightroom installed on it, I've never been tempted to try and process anything on the netbook.

i don't do any serious editing on my netbook but even the simple editing is easier on a netbook. i usually also carry a laptop so a netbook makes more sense to me. in fact i sold my laptop as well as my epson when i got the netbook.

Here is the netbook I got. It's not meant for post processing work, but I simply use it to back-up images so that I don't have to carry too many CF cards. It's the perfect travel companion when you are traveling. Park yourself at an cafe with wifi and you can do a lot more than what portable media storage can.

Strange, why so? i didn't try with my Epson P-4000 if it accepts my 1DsIII RAW files or Hasselblad H3D.

Sorry Frank, but showing up in the bar with a netbook would certainly raise some eyebrows, not go over well with the ladies, and shout G-E-E-K!. :razz: The Epson is cool and sexy, and the ladies at the bar go, Ohhh, show me that!

Seriously, culling the duds on the Epson is quite easy since it does have a 4 inch screen. It is far easier to carry, and passing it around is also easy since it is about the size of a paperback. Granted, some OLD FOLKS may need the larger screen of the netbook to see the photos, but not in my crowd. :cool:

Strange, why so? i didn't try with my Epson P-4000 if it accepts my 1DsIII RAW files or Hasselblad H3D.

I am not sure why this is so, but from what I've read on several reviews, the Epsons cannot process thumbnails or view images from RAW files generated by the high megapixel cameras, at least not yet (the 5DMkII is 21 MP). Of course, you can back up the RAW files from these cameras, it's just that you cannot see the images. One way to get around this would be to shoot RAW+JPG, where you would be able to save both and see the JPG.

In any event, I'd be interested to know if your two cameras will show RAW thumbnails and images with your P-4000.

Netbooks are cool but still take up a lot of space compared to the Creative Vision W or the Epsons. And I'm guessing they don't have a built in CF slot either.

WOW, my P-4000 never show H3D files [not supported] but my RAW files from my 1DsIII the 21mp camera are clear and supported, so check your Epson viewer.
Maybe one day if i have a time i will ask one of my friends who owns 5D MKII to test his CF, or if someone has 5DII RAW files to send me and i can check then it will be a good idea.

Thanks for this Tareq. Although I've only heard this second hand, I'm not sure why the RAW files would be supported on your 1DsIII but not the 5DMkII. From the specs, the systems seem pretty much the same (14 bit, 21 MP). I note that the Epson site does not list the 1DsIII as supported RAW files. But they can be viewed on your camera. Strange.

Because my 1DsIII RAW file is .CR2, maybe your 5DII RAW is .CR4 .... :D;)

And that list on the website is old, so they included the available cameras that time [maybe 2005 or 2006], but at least they wrote which extension it can support, so if they will produce .CR2 cameras forever it will be supported, but if they change that, the n Epson must produce another viewer to support the new formats or extensions.

I think all the Canon RAW files are .CR2.
