I picked myself up this (http://buffalo.melcoinc.co.jp/products/catalog/storage/directstation_pocket/index.html) today - sorry they have only released a local model at this point.

20gb drive - same style as an ipod drive
size is 6.4cm x 2 cm x 9.8cm and comes in at 145g

nice, nice little toy, and I don't need to lug the lappy any more

I've heard of those but I haven't seen any for sale around here. Haven't looked that hard though. Last time I was away from home for several days I had to bring a laptop to transfer my pictures. This device would be a lot more convenient.

its still kind of useless to me as my camera is only 2.1 Megapixel.
I get around 500 pictures worth before the memory card fills up and the battery dies :D

ahh, well i get about 350 on the current card, but, if you checked out the vid - no you didn't dial up, you would understand why I got it.

This is what I was thinking of:

Epson P-2000 (http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/consumer/consDetail.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&oid=49164278)

Expensive though :ermm:

ooooh purdy.

being honest, I was also after small size. viewing the images wasn't an issue for me, size was, and mine fits in my pocket.

How many Yen after taxes did it cost you Sasq? (if you don't mind me asking)

26th July 2005, 14:50
about 28,000yen after tax, but I had store credit, so it worked out to 18,000

Sweet!! That's about 307$ CAD, that is a good deal! :up:
