If your laptop doesn’t quite fit into your camera bag, there is another option for getting your snaps saved away to a hard drive – a portable photo vault.Veteran darkroom accessory maker, Jobo, has impressed with its Giga One and now it’s back with a replacement, the Giga One Ultra.With up to 200GB inside it can store more than 40,000 standard 10MP JPEGs in one device – just about enough for our annual trip to Benidorm.Jobo’s halved the time it takes to transfer pics with a 1GB card now being copied in a hasty three minutes. The card can then either be wiped and used again or kept as a back-up if you’re the cautious type.It also now gets support for newer SDHC cards as well as a multitude of others but there’s still no screen for actually viewing your pics – for that you’ll need the pricier Spectator.EssentialsJobo GIGA One Ultra 40, 80, 120, 200GBPrice: €150, €200, €230, €330On sale: end of October Contact: JoboRelated stories:Archos preps 160GB video gannetStuff Forum: Image storageEpson’s picture perfect photo bank
