Default IBM Microdrive

Luv that Microdrive. Only complaint is I shoot too many photos have to discipline myself to delete the bad ones. I shoot at 1600 x 1200 which is ample size, Use the RAW or highest Tiff for critical shots such as product photos to blow up.

Everthought about sticking the microdrive in a PDA? It's a blast to use with an e740/750 (musics, pictures, video, and al) with the accessory battery pack! It's just too bad one has to remove it for the Pharos GPS...

Sounds cool NHL but I don't yet own a PDA.

No PDA. Dude! The PDA's more important than the camera, since it combines for me cell phone-organizer-games-downloadable newspapers, books, foreign language dictionaries, MS WORD converters, and well, you get the idea.

NHL: I actually like using my microdrive as a portable hard drive. It's made by ZIP drive obsolete.

Me too, I use it to carry data between work/home or to transfer large MPEG capture from the lab... Only one problem though when using the microdrive with the wireless WiFi on e740 PDA though, only one of the device can be on @ a time otherwise there's not enough juice to power both! The accessory battery pack is a must...

Default Accessory Battery Pack

Thanks NHL for that 'magic word' accessory pack. You're recommendation please?

The e740 (with built-in 802.11 + sD/MMc & CF slots!) can be had now for just ~$280, the e750/755 replacement have a better screen (not as good as HP/Compaq), but is lot of value for the money... 8) . The accessory battery pack is listed below (but cheaper on-line):

I read most of the battery article pointed out by wnjmr but I missed it if there was something about using lithium ion instead of NiMH. Why I ponder, the MaHa MH-DPB140LI battery pack is recommended for the D7i instead of the NiMH version. Is that because the lithium pack has a higher voltage?
