|eFilm PicturePAD Now Supporting New RAW Files|
Poway CA, January 8, 2003: Delkin Devices has announced that the new firmware for the eFilm PicturePAD is now able to recognize additional raw files for high-end SLR digital cameras. The eFilm PicturePAD is a mobile storage device for digital photographers with a built in hard drive for storing digital images and a color LCD screen for viewing them. The PicturePAD has always allowed the user to store and view the more common TIFF and JPEG files, but the RAW format has gained in popularity recently among digital photography enthusiasts. Many photographers, especially professional, feel that the RAW format is the truest digital negative it can build, since it contains the full range of tone and color information captured by the camera. Delkin anticipated the necessity to keep up with current technology and changing customer needs by designing the PicturePAD to be upgradeable to all users, regardless of when the unit was purchased. Delkin regularly updates the PicturePADés firmware for download on their website at www.delkin.com.
Released late last year, The PicturePAD has become extremely popular for traveling photographers looking for a safe place to store their images. Ités portable and compact with a built-in hard drive (currently ranging from 20GB to 60GB) and offers a full range of features for transferring, viewing and organizing photos. By simply inserting a digital camera memory card, the unit allows you to instantly view digital images on the color LCD panel any time, any place. Now PicturePAD users are able to view thumbnails, show slide shows, and zoom, rotate and pan RAW file images. Currently the latest PicturePAD firmware (1.07.03) supports RAW file viewing from the following cameras:
Canon D30, D60
Canon PowerShot G1, G2
Canon PowerShot S30, S40
FujiFilm S2 Pro
Nikon D1, D1X, D1H, D100
Nikon CoolPix 5000, 5700
There isnét a mobile storage device currently on the market that supports more RAW files than the PicturePAD. For the professional photographer who demands their camera equipment to support the RAW file format, the eFilm PicturePAD offers the best solution. Delkin is committed to continually updating the list of PicturePAD RAW file supported cameras and encourages PicturePAD users to check its website regularly for revisions.
