Imagetank G2

      Leadpic_ST_ImagetankG2

      In summary

      The Imagetank G2 is solidly-built, with reinforced corners and a recessed on/off switch. CompactFlash cards fit into a slot on the left side panel. The rectangular LCD data panel has a monochrome display that doesn’t support image viewing, and the instructions it provides are basic, but adequate. Only six control buttons are provided, along with a central ‘Exe’ key that activates selected functions. The operating system automatically copies the files and folders as they are in the camera so, if your camera creates a new folder for each shooting session, that’s what’s transferred. You can track the progress of a download via a message that shows the percentage of data and number of files copied. . . [more]

      Imagetank G2

      The Imagetank G2 is solidly-built, with reinforced corners and a recessed on/off switch. CompactFlash cards fit into a slot on the left side panel. The rectangular LCD data panel has a monochrome display that doesn’t support image viewing, and the instructions it provides are basic, but adequate.

The operating system automatically copies the files and folders as they are in the camera so, if your camera creates a new folder for each shooting session, that’s what’s transferred. You can track the progress of a download via a message that shows the percentage of data and number of files copied.

      Transferring files is comparatively fast, thanks to USB 2.0 enablement. It took just over four minutes to download the contents of a 1GB CompactFlash card to the G2 in the field, and less than six minutes to transfer this data to a computer. A 4-in-1 card adapter for SD/MMC and Memory Stick cards is available for $34.95. An extra battery pack, the Image Tank iPower 268 (RRP $99), provides multiple and selectable voltage and a car adapter is available for $34.95.

      Strengths:

      • Ruggedly constructed
      • Easy to use
      • Relatively fast

      Weaknesses:

      • Image viewing not supported
      • No way to select individual image files
