DigiMateIII Cool Photography Gadget (Photo Storage)

Digital Photography gadgets, Digital Photography photo storage, DSLR backup storage, Digital Photography toys
Now this is one really cool little item I think every person that is in to photography should have in their arsenal of toys. Its the DigiMateIII it will accommodate a 2.5” hard drive (laptop hard drive) right now I have 60GB drive in there. It reads Compact Flash Card (CF) type I and type II, Secure Digital (SD), Memory Stick (MS/MS Pro/MS Duo, Multimedia Card (MMC), Micro Drive, Mini SD, and RS-MMC.

But that is not the best part, it has an internal battery that will run the hard drive out in the field and copy all of the photo's taken on that card to the hard drive. All with out wires, now that is cool. If you are out taking pictures on top of a mountain some where and you run out of space on your memory card just pop it in the DigiMateIII hit copy and now you can start shooting again.

It connects directly to your computer and can be used as a card reader as well as a back up for your pictures. It can also be uses like any portable hard drive for backups and the like.

There are a couple of items you will need to over come with this handy little gadget. First off you will need a hard drive and have the capabilities of installing it. This is not difficult at all in fact they give you instructions and a screw driver to ensure you get it installed right. Second you can not just plug it in to a Windows (XP) machine and format the new drive. Windows has limits on formating FAT32 will not do anything over 32GB if memory serves correctly. You will need a format utility, one should be easily found on www.download.com. Or you can try start menu / run / cmd this will open a command line box and type: format (your drive letter) /fs:fat32 but this did not work in my situation. Just another cool little item I use consistantly.
