Digital Foci releases Photo Safe II
Digital photographers on the go worried about running out of space on their memory cards have an option aside from carrying around lots of memory cards that they may not be aware of–a Photo Safe by Digital Foci.
A Photo Safe is a portable battery-powered storage device that isn’t that much more than a laptop hard drive and a memory card reader so while you’re on the go you can just plug in a memory card and the Photo Safe will copy photos off of your memory card and onto it’s hard drive so you can get back to shooting quickly with the same video card.
Digital Foci has just released the Photo Safe II which is available with either an 80GB or 160GB hard drive. This new version of the device is a bit smaller than the previous model and it also adds support for Memory Stick Duo and miniSD cards.
Photos are copied at up to 5MBps and their original format is retained, so if you shoot in RAW they’ll stay that way.
The 80GB version is available for $140 and the 160GB for $190. For more info about the Photo Safe II check out the official product page here.
