" Easy image tranfer. move your digital images from memory card to CD-roms, without a computer or electrical outlet." Install your memory card and the device creates a CD-R/RW at the touch of a button."

Looks very interesting.
I have never used it. At that price probably never will.
Sounds like it would be nice if you don't have the time to put on puter then burn cd.
When i win the lottery and upgrade all my stuff will have to give this a look :-)

I don't know about the ezdigimagic but my stepson just purchased a similar device to take along with him on an oversees trip. He didn't want to travel with his laptop so thought this would serve him well away from home. He tried it out and said it was working great. He's overseas now so we'll know in about another week how well it worked away from home.
Here is the url of the one he bought. It cost about $250.00 USD. Oh yeah...the url: http://www.micro-solutions.com/product_info/roadstor/lit-401010.html
Welcome to Photozo.
If anyone has any info on these could you let me know. I am going on a photo vacation to Rome and Venice for 12 days in November. I am not taking a laptop and have heard horror stories about portable digital storage devices (hard drive). I would be sick to think of spending all of that money on a trip to loose all the photos! I have read a couple of articles on EX PnP but have yet to see a review.
Ordered one this morning. I'll let you all know how it works out.
Well it was delivered yesterday and went out an shot a pro beach volleyball tournament. I shot a ton of pictures, and put the ezdigimagic to the test. I have a 512 and 256 card so when shooting at over 3 meg a picture, as you know, they fill up quick at events. A 512 card takes 4-6 minutes to copy to CDR. Takes quite a bit longer with a CDRW due to low write speeds. I like the CD writer over the hard drive type because once it's written, the only way to loose data is to loose the CD. You know when something has actually been written on a CD. Hard drive type, I have heard horror stories of thousands of pictures being lost due to drive malfuntion. When trying to retrieve the photos by sending the unit to the company, it costs a small fortune. A friend just went through that and to retrieve 800 pictures it was a staggering price! The unit comes with a battery pack (4 AA) that clips on the back making it a one piece unit (unlike other external battery packs). Also has AC power. Lights to let you know if the disc is full, battery indicator, and successful write. The unit is 7.5 x 6 inches with the battery pack. I have a Tamrac pro12 bag (among others) and fits perfectly in one of the compartments.
I'll put it through a TRUE test when I take it to Rome in November but looks like it does the trick. For $270.00 with shipping, a great buy for those who want unlimited storage for something that uses little space in their bag.
