I love my Epson P-7000 Multimedia viewer. I had a P-5000 before it, and P-3000 before that, and it’s been my go-to in-field photo back-up device for years now. It travels with me for every location shoot. But now so does my Apple iPad, and it now Apple has a camera connection kit for it, so you can see where this is going.

  • The P-7000 is $799 and has 160GB of storage.
  • The iPad has 64GB of storage for $699 (+$29 for the camera connection kit).

But of course, this story is about much more than storage space.

So, what do you guys see as the fate of the P-7000? Does it even have a future? Or does it have a future at a much lower price (like $299)? I’m interested to hear what you guys think. (By the way—neither support Flash, so let’s not even go there).
