Never fill a digital camera memory card again

Epson's new P-2000 stores up to 40GB of photos straight from your camera's memory card

Epson's new P-2000 Multimedia Storage Viewer features a 40GB hard drive that you can use to store images from memory cards. That means you don't have to worry about running out of card space or carrying a notebook along. Just insert the memory card into the P-2000, transfer the images, clear the card, and start shooting again.

Each of the two built-in memory card slots supports CompactFlash Type I and Type II and Secure Digital memory cards, and there’s an optional third-party adapter for additional cards. The P-2000 has a 3.8in display for viewing Jpeg images. Its 40GB capacity is enough to store about 5000 RAW-format images and up to 10,000 5Mp Jpeg images, according to Epson.

The P-2000 displays images up to 8.9Mp and also supports Mpeg-4 and Mjpeg video files, and MP3 and unprotected AAC audio files. It connects to Macs or PCs using a USB 2.0 interface. It's powered by a lithium ion battery and includes a charger/AC adapter, a high-speed USB cable, a carrying case, and a wrist strap. Look for it in stores in early November for $349.

The portable device is designed to enable users to show off digital photos culled from a computer or straight from the flash cards used by popular cameras. Intended as a replacement for Epson's P-1000, the P-2000 has higher-capacity storage, a faster interface and the ability to play video and music files.

Users can zoom and rotate images, create a slide show with music and share images on an NTSC or PAL television screen, monitor or projector using an optional third-party cable. You can also print directly to supported Epson printers; the P-2000 supports PRINT Image Matching II and Exif 2.2 technology.
