A Cool Tool for a Cool Job – Epson P-7000x


While it is called a “multimedia photo viewer”, think of the Epson P-7000 as a miniature quality control system for in-the-field photography.  If you’ve ever taken shots in a hard-to-reach location and tried to asses the quality of those shots in the field by squinting at your camera’s LCD screen, you can certainly appreciate the concept of the P-7000.

In fact Richard Wiese, during his trip to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, used the P-7000 to off-load photos of the climb and tune the results without having to lug around a laptop.  Since it can store about a gazillion photos, you can use this as a light-weight method to store and show proofs from different shoots.

The specs:

  • 4-inch LCD
  • 2.5” 160GB hard drive
  • USB 2.0 interface
  • Approx. 1.0 lb (with battery)
    5.9”W (150 mm) x 1.3”D (33.1 mm) x 3.5”H (88.7 mm)
  • $799 (ouch!)
