Digital Foci PST-251 Photo Safe II 80GB User Opinions
Great for backup in the field, | Rating:
“This is not the advertised way to use this hard drive. But since I did not have the chance to test it before I left, I was leary of deleting the primary images. One exception was the videos I took. I did delete them from the memory card each night to free up memory. This worked fine;so the device worked very well for both purposes.” – By Kevin A. Fay
Good BACKUP device, | Rating:
“This has been a great BACKUP device for me… I have found this device does a great job of backing up my files and giving me peace of mind when I’m leaving a shoot, especially if I have a second photographer there. Nothing worse than a second shooter losing a card or something on the way home, with hours of irreplaceable work gone.” – By mgspeed
