Thread: iPod Photo or Sony PSP?

  1. #1

    Default iPod Photo or Sony PSP?

    Hi all,

    would like some opinions...I like to get either a iPod Photo or Sony PSP as a image viewer when I travel.

    Some Pros and cons are:-

    iPod Photo | Sony PSP
    1. Sleeker Big Screen

    2. Lower Resolution Screen Screen resoulation about the same as most
    Camera LCD

    3. Big Harddisk Small pathetic Harddisk

    4. Cannot zoom or pan Can zoom and pan

    5. Cannot view videos or Can view videos and play 'real' games
    play 'real' games

    I guess that's about it and if I can get the 40GB iPod Photo at around $450 which is the same price as the Sony PSP? Which is a most logical choice?

    Sony PSP, more uses for it. Ipod Photo doesnt allow you to view the pics straight after transfer from cam to ipod, can only be viewed after you pass thru Iphoto. Ipod photo is the last version of ipod I would ever choose.

    thanks mate actually i was leaning towards PSP as well...went to junction 8 to test it earlier

    iPod Photo does allow you to view pictures direct if you get the Apple Camera Connector to transfer the pics but the downside of this is that it drains both the battery of the ipod and the camera

    no point. check the PSP thread for those guys that bought it and ask them for better advice. I sold Ipods before and they are not the ones for portable storage on the go. if both are not up to it. I rather you go get from other brands.

    I do not need hardcore storage on the go which is why I am looking at convergent devices...really appreciate your opinions now my mind is more or less set on PSP liaoz
