WD My Passport Studio

Western Digital has introduced a new line of portable hard drives for Macs, the My Passport Studios. The drives are specifically journaled and HFS+-formatted for Macs, and are compatible with Apple's Time Machine utility in Mac OS X Leopard; they are likewise equipped with a FireWire 400 port, in addition to a more standard USB 2.0 connection. A rounded silver case is intended to blend in with other Mac hardware.

The drives also weigh less than five ounces, and feature capacity gauges to more quickly judge remaining space. For simple protection, drawstring carrying bags are bundled in the packaging. Mac OS X 10.4.11 is required; the 250GB drive costs $160, while the 320GB model is $220. Windows users can reformat the Studios as necessary.

    Where is the new 5D?? My 20D is quite aging...

    I also agree that one must have an eye and know how to use their kits. I do well with outdoor shots, but SUCK at indoor or low light.

    Still learning...
