Multitasking and connectedness are the defining qualities of the latest
devices for storing, viewing, and sharing digital images.
The screen's still the selling point in this roomier update of last year's P-2000, our favorite digital photo storage viewer. The P-4000 keeps the latter's gorgeous 3.8-inch color LCD but doubles hard drive size to 80GB and comes with a longer-lived battery. It stores and displays RAW files from more D-SLRs, as well as from Epson's own R-D1 digital rangefinders; you can play video in several formats, along with MP3 music and ACC audio files. (There's AC-out for TV viewing.) Card slots accommodate both CF and SD, the R-D1's format. PictBridge capability means you can output straight to a compatible printer-no need to download first to your computer. About $610.
