Epson P5000 Photo Viewer

Pro digital photographers regularly offload their images to a hard drive, whether in a laptop or a dedicated photo viewer. Neither of these is typically an ideal option for those that travel light: a laptop is usually large and heavy, while a compact photo viewer's basic LCD often hides colors that are present in the actual shot. Epson believes its new P-3000 (storing 40GB) and P-5000 (80GB) photo storage viewers solve this latter problem by introducing a LCD with a four-color filter that increases the color gamut to 16.7 million, bringing the picture quality up to 88% of the Adobe RGB standard used by many photographers and illustrators. Both viewers support JPEG and specific RAW formats. Epson also notes that the new devices double as media players and can play AAC or MP3 video as well as DivX, MPEG-4, or Motion JPEG video on a 4-inch LCD. These updates to the P-series should ship in October at $499 for the P-3000 model and $699 for the range-topping P-5000. Click through for a full-size photo.
