Epson intros photo viewers

Epson announced the release of its new multimedia photo viewers for professional photographers on the go, with the P-6000 and P-7000. Either gives photographers the ability to download and view their digital photos on 4-inch, 640x480 (VGA) resolution LCD screens that are capable of displaying over 16.7 million colors. The P-6000 sports an 80GB hard-disk drive, with the P-7000 upping it to 160GB and both feature a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 connection that allows download speeds up to one third faster than the models they sit atop in Epson's range, the P-3000 and P-5000.

At the same time, the displays in the new photo viewers up the Adobe RGB color space to 94 percent of coverage, up from 88 percent of the lesser models. Either device supports JPEG photo formats and the RAW files from most popular Digital SLR cameras, with a zoom function that allows photographers to confirm focus and look closer at fine details. Supported video files include MPEG-4, Motion JPEG and H.264/AVC SVGA, while the compatible audio formats include MP3 and MPEG-4/AAC files. An A/V output in the form of a 3.5mm headphone jack allows the device to play sound through external speakers.

The devices feature built-in CF -- including ones that support high-speed UDMA -- and SD card slots, with other types compatible with the use of an adapter. The rechargeable lithium-ion battery is rated at three hours of life. A travel pack that includes a dual battery charger, car adapter and case comes with the P-7000 model only.

The P-6000 will be priced at nearly $600 with the P-7000 priced at nearly $800 when both go on sale this September.
