So, apart from the spelling issue what’s this thing got that other devices haven’t? Well, I have been coveting an Epson P700 for quite some time, but shooting primarily in RAW means huge files. I have a fast camera and fast storage so I really want a fast backup device as well so the P7000 was disappointing. Enter the Sanho Colorspace UDMA.
Now, in terms of looks the overall impression is “functional yet clunky”. The device itself is started by sliding a power switch and holding it for 2 seconds. This is a little less functional but an interesting security feature so you don’t accidentally switch it on while it’s falling around in your bag (although my camera bag is pretty well packed). If, like me, you’re not an avid manual reader then this will probably throw you to start with. The device is a little slow at booting taking about 30 seconds to get to the menu, and once ready for action you’re presented with your ‘favourites’ screen. This screen comes set-up with the defaults of backup and browse etc, and it’s pretty simple to work your way round and add things to it as you go.
