  • You then just simply take your memory card out of your camera, plug it into the device, and back it up onto the hard drive of the device as a means of storing your important photos (so that you have access to them in more than one place) and also , since there’s a nice color LCD screen, you have the ability to preview your images

      This is basically a device that has a standard hard drive in it.

      On one side you got a compact flash card reader. On the other side, you got an SD card reader which, of course, you can adapt to memory stick and other formats as well as the compact flash format as well. You also have a USB port for plugging it into your computer to get the photos off of the device once you’ve backed them up.

      The idea of this is that when you are out on vacation or when you’re out in the field, instead of taking your computer with you on-site, you can just have this in your pocket or camera bag or something. You then just simply take your memory card out of your camera, plug it


      into the device, and back it up onto the hard drive of the device as a means of storing your important photos (so that you have access to them in more than one place) and also , since there’s a nice color LCD screen, you have the ability to preview your images.

      When you boot it up, you get a nice intro color display as their logo comes up. It doesn’t take too long to boot up.

      So what can you use it for. Like I said, you can put your memory card in and back it up, and because its UDMA based, if you happen have a relatively fast card, it will back it up really quickly.

      As for me, I have about 200 raw files on it for my Nikon D700 and those raw files backed up through this device (which of course can display raw and jpg images) took about a minute and 20 seconds. So that’s pretty cool and I was amazed at how fast it happened. Remember, not only can you back them up but you can also browse them by navigating through the different menus.

      The thing that cracked me up is that, apparently, the programming that they’re using is very Windows DOS-like because it shows a C drive and it got folders on that C drive and then the DCMI folder and the subfolder that leads to my pictures. So it literally copied the exact folder structure of the card and your images show up as thumbnails in the image folder. Of course, you can navigate to specific thumbnail and then click ...

      on it to get a closer look and this displays the image in full screen. The actual images appear quicker if you had already previewed them before. The ones that haven’t been rendered yet take a few seconds longer to show up.

      The device lets you update the firmware in it to accommodate new raw files that it doesn’t yet support so you don’t have to worry about that.

      This particular device is kinda barebones. It’s really only a hard drive for back up and a 3 inch LCD screen for viewing your images. As far as the size of the screen, it’s kinda small and ironically, the LCD screen is no bigger or smaller than the screen on the back of my Nikon D700 camera. They’re both 3 inch LCD screens. And I

      got to say, the display on my Nikon is much more crisper than the display on this Colorspace device. The Colorspace display is just barely usable. It’s not a high quality display and really only to give you a quick idea of what the image looks like and nothing really special about the visuals, whatsoever.

      You might be thinking…if I already have a high quality camera, then why am I even talking about this device that doesn’t have a good screen display. Here’s the thing: the price. This device rounds at around 200-400 bucks depending on which one you get. Mine comes with a 120 GB drive. My camera costs tons more money and holds less space. If you’re looking for a less expensive alternative to storing images, then get this product.
