Zip to It
If you're familiar with all things Zip, you'll see that the FotoShow is your standard 250MB Zip drive decked out with a Motorola PowerPC microprocessor. This enables the handsome, silver-and-black, space-age storage facility to transfer images from CompactFlash card, SmartMedia card, and Microdrive digital film to 250MB Zip disks.

The number of images you are able to store on one 250MB Zip disk depends on both the image resolution and the type of digital camera you use to shoot your photos, but you should expect somewhere around 1,000 images at 1,024 by 768. To put it simply, this will solve almost all of your image-storage problems in one fell swoop by freeing up your hard drive and allowing you to upload images onto one standard disk.
