Advantages: Easy to store photos while out and about
Disadvantages: Not cheap!!
The Epsom P-3000 photo viewer is a wonderful little machine that is a must for any serious photographer, this piece of kit lets you download images onto its 40gb internal hard drive when you are away from your computer. Simple and easy to use, once you own one you'll struggle to see how you coped before!
As a very keen amateur photographer, I am often filling my memory cards, while not being near my computer (specifically when on holiday or track side at a motor sports event), before I was bought this photo viewer that often meant stopping or deleting photos. Well now that is not an issue, I simply plug my flash cards into the top and download my images onto the portable drive and I can clear down my memory cards and carry on shooting.
On top of this great feature (as if that wasn't enough) the viewing screen (4 inches of crystal clear LCD) allows you to study the photos you have taken in more detail than you would manage on any cameras monitor, and even has a zoom feature so you can get even closer!
Supporting jpegs and RAW files, as well as video files such as mpeg and DivX, as well as MP3 and ACC so you can put videos and music on there!! As a birdwatcher I have used the MP3 tool to place recordings of birds to use as a guide at future times.
The lithium battery allows up to 3 hours of continuous playback so you are unlikely to run out of juice simply downloading you photos.
Accepts compact flash and SD memory cards.
There is even a direct printing system but I have yet to use this so would not like to comment on its success.
The only drawback would be the price; at an RRP of £342 it's not cheap,
although with a bit of searching you can get it at a lower price.
Summary: An excellent buy but a bit pricey.
