Itâ€™s not a portable media player that can entertain you on the road, but the Digital Foci Photo Safe does its job very well of providing you a reliable storage for your photos. Photo Safe is equipped with a 40GB, 80GB, or 120GB hard drive so you can keep snapping away and never worry of running out of memory card space.
Itâ€™s secure and itâ€™s safe; itâ€™s also fast. It can copy a full 1GB card in just 5 minutes. Just insert your flash memory card in its built-in card reader and it instantly works to transfer your photos to its hard drive. The backlit LED screen shows you the status of the photo transfer plus other bits of information. Then, when you get home you can retrieve all those photos into your PC.
It can serve too as backup hard drive for your computer data. Once connected to the PC, it appears as an external hard drive and you can use it as such.
The Digital Foci Photo Safe supports virtually all card formats: CF, MicroDrive, xD-Picture Card, MMC, SD/HC Card, miniSD, Memory Stick, MS PRO, MS Duo, and MS PRO Duo.
And yes, because itâ€™s not a PMP, it is priced low; starts at $139 for the 40GB version. Itâ€™s set to debut at PMA 2007. Watch for it.
