You’d have to be more than a casual photo geek to invest in one of Epson’s new photo viewers. The P-6000 and P-7000 display pretty, colorful pictures, but at sort of a hefty price.
The P-6000 is $600—and that’s the lower priced model. It’s got an 80GB hard drive. For an extra $100, you can score the P-7000, which has 160GB.
Both boast a 4-inch 640 x 480 LCD screen and Photo Fine Premia, which kicks the Adobe RGB gamut up to 94 percent, promising the best pictures you’ve ever seen—even the ones with your thumb in them. Epson also says that download speeds are 35 percent faster than its predecessors, and the rechargeable lithium-ion battery lasts up to three hours.
In person, both are very cool, but considering the number of portable audio/video/photo viewers out there, you’d probably have to be a serious shutterbug to invest in one.
If that’s you, check out both of these models when they hit stores in September.
