operating system. Supported via an enhanced driver, the CameraMate delivers expanded features such as media hot- swapping which is not a function of the standard NT 4.0 feature set.
Since its introduction in February 1998, the CameraMate has quickly become an industry favorite for PC Card storage solutions. It operates as an external PC Card reader that supports Type II and III PC Cards, CompactFlash[tm], and SmartMedia[tm]. In addition to its outstanding media flexibility, the CameraMate's street price is under $100, putting it well within the reach of all digital camera users.
CameraMate is equipped with a dedicated CompactFlash socket and a standard PC Card slot capable of accommodating Type I, II or III ATA devices. By using a Type II-to-SmartMedia adapter card, users can also read SSFDC SmartMedia cards in the standard PC Card slot. CameraMate features a parallel interface for widespread PC compatibility. CameraMate measures 3" x 5" x 1" , and has a footprint that accommodates almost any desktop. An integrated CompactFlash slot means the CameraMate does not require a Type II adapter to utilize CompactFlash cards. It also includes a 10.5mm card slot that is Type I/II/III compatible with all ATA storage devices.
The CameraMate, along with Microtech's entire line of digital imaging accessories, including Compact FlashFilm, SmartMedia, Digital FlashFilm[tm], and Digital PhotoAlbum[tm] SCSI PCMCIA reader/writers, are available from Ingram Micro and Pinacor distribution.
