With the upgrade, shutterbugs can connect selected Canon or Nikon dSLRs to the photo viewer via USB and images captured will be sent to both the memory card and Epson device simultaneously.

Are you an owner of the Epson P-6000 or P-7000 Multimedia Photo Viewer? If so, the new firmware available at the end of this month will interest you.

Previously, users had to take out the flash media from their cameras and plug it into the gadget to start the file transfer. But with the upgrade, shutterbugs can connect selected Canon or Nikon dSLRs to the photo viewer via USB and images captured will be sent to both the memory card and Epson device simultaneously.

Other than tethering, the upcoming firmware update also adds remote shutter function and this lets users control their dSLRs from the photo viewer, too, via USB.
