Epson has announced that it will be launching two specialist multimedia photo viewers that are designed for the professional and extremely keen photographer. That is, you need to either be extremely keen, or are looking for things to buy in order to hide a recent inheritance you’ve come in to. For the convenience of being able to view photographs before you get home and store everything from your memory card in a photo viewer, the price tags of £300 to £400 are a little restrictive to all but the most obsessive.
With that said, the feature range is pretty good and enables you to store and watch video and audio as well. Between 80GB and a massive 160GB of storage you shouldn’t run out of room too quickly at all unless you’re attempting to record the next Batman film in high def and store all the takes on either of these models.
The P-6000 is the entry level model costing about £300 and featuring an 80GB hard drive while the P-7000 costs about £400 and has 160GB of storage. The interface is reasonably well designed and the Epson photo software offers some basic open, zoom, and save functions but little else.
