EXTRA STORAGE FOR YOUR CAMERA

tulipsWe were on the road once and filled up our camera card with pictures of tulips. So we stopped at a camera store and bought another card. Another way to go is the “Eye-Fi,” which uploads photos to the Internet. But you have to be in range of a Wi-Fi hotspot for this to work.

An expensive but handy alternative for people who take a lot of pictures is the new “Picture Porter 35” from Digital Foci. It costs $500 and holds 500 gigabytes worth of any digital media. That’s enough for 140,000 high-resolution photos, 116,000 songs, or 1000 movies. A 3.5-inch LCD display lets you view stored photos. A 250 gigabyte version costs $400.

Picture Porter has other features: You can create playlists for different photo shows, view “RAW” images from DSLR cameras and record and play back audio messages for each photo. More info on this at digitalfoci.com.
