Garagebrands has announced a major firmware upgrade to the Digital Foci Picture Porter, its high capacity 250/500GB portable photo manager.
Picture Porter 35 enables photographers to instantly and securely store and view digital photos, music and video. It features a 3.5-inch colour LCD screen for easy viewing, built-in hard drive with 250GB and 500GB capacities, fast copy speeds of 1GB of data under 90 seconds, and a multi-format memory card reader.
– Incremental back-up: Save new photos to an existing folder in the Backup Directory.
– Full screen preview: Select from Full Screen, 3×2 Thumbnail View, 5×4 Thumbnail View, and List View. ‘On the fly’ file management tools include Copy, Delete, Export, Rename, Sort by Name or Date, Create New Folders and Add to Playlist.
– USB mode selection expands support for external hard drives connected to Picture Porter 35. This provides a convenient and inexpensive method for making a secondary backup of critical photos.
– Extended camera support for RAW, EXIF data, IPTC and histograms. The latest-release DSLRs (and Canon G11) are now supported. RAW images viewable with zoom capability, and EXIF/histogram viewing for examining photos in greater detail. Picture Porter 35 also supports IPTC metadata display for access to information such as caption, copyright owner, and comments that are embedded in the photos. As newer models are introduced into the market, Digital Foci will add new RAW support with future firmware releases
‘Not only does the Picture Porter 35 relieve you from worrying about limited memory card space for your digital camera, but it’s also the best device to help you keep all your photos in one, easy-to-manage location,’ said Tom Fisher, marketing director, Garagebrands Australia, distributor of Digital Foci and Smartparts-branded digital frames and storage devices.
‘Picture Porter 35 gives you the photo management features you need to eliminate bringing a computer on the road, makes it easy to sort through and organise newly-acquired photos on the spot, and provides a great way to carry your entire photo collection to present and share whenever you need.’
