Jobo Giga One
The Giga One features a 30Gb hard drive and 10-in-1 card interface for direct transfer from camera memory cards.
Portable battery-powered back-up units are becoming increasingly popular due to the rise in sales of digital SLR cameras and the amount of memory required by their increasing megapixel count.
The Jobo Giga One features a stylish and compact aluminium housing, making it small and light enough to fit easily into your pocket. Transfer speeds are amongst the fastest available with a full 1Gb CF card, which takes just 7 minutes to transfer to the units hard drive. As the transfer takes place, the LCD screen shows the current status with indicators for percentage of transfer completed, amount of data being transferred in Mb, battery level and space remaining on the units hard drive. There are also indicators showing which card type is inserted and whether a USB connection has been made between the Giga One and a computer.
The Giga One can be used as an external hard drive for your computer or even a 10-in-1 multi-card reader with its High Speed USB 2.0 interface. The three card slots on the Giga One support the following media cards without the need for additional adapters; CompactFlash I & II cards, Microdrive, SD, MMC, MS, MS Pro, MS Duo, XD, SM.
