Back up and view your photos while you're out and about with this handy gadget

Epson P-7000 Multimedia Storage Viewer-Main
A good gadget for the mobile photographer but hard to justify if you will only use this from time to time

Our Verdict

Full-frame previewing and zooming of photos is particularly fast on the P-7000, and the image quality of the screen is excellent. The basic image adjustments are useful too. Even so, we'd rather spend this sort of money on a decent laptop, which offers so much more


  • Screen
  • Copy speed


  • Expensive
  • Not very useful

There's a wealth of portable photo storage solutions on the market, but the specifications (and price) of the Epson P-7000 place it near the top of the pile.

It features a clear and bright 4-inch LCD that offers VGA resolution, remarkably accurate colour and contrast and a generous 160GB of space. The similar P-6000 weighs in at £90 less, but only has half the capacity.

Lightning quick

The outstanding feature here is speed. In our tests, using SanDisk Extreme III cards, it took 1 minute 50 seconds to transfer 1GB of data from a CF card, and 2 minutes 15 seconds from an SDHC card.

It's capable of viewing JPEGs of up to 30Mp in size and most RAW formats are supported, with some even allowing for basic editing on the fly. Useful, but even with MP3 and MPEG support thrown in, it's hard to justify the P-7000's cost.
