Digital photography media always easier.
Microtech has decided to "cover" all the various digital archiving formats of photographs with the introduction of the ZiO! Family, one per type of support. There is a model (all USB) for CompactFlash (CF Type I and II including the recently announced IBM Microdrive for 1 Gb in addition to the 170 Mb, 340 Mb and 512 Mb formats), one for SmartMedia, and another for MultiMedia / Secure Digital. The innovation of ZiO! compared to others it is the speed of transfer of the photos (music or other) and the lack of housing for batteries since it acquires energy from the host.
There are still no official prices but Outpost pre-orders are made at $ 30 each (more expensive than the average of the competitors).
