This Photo Book from Digital Foci actually looks pretty cool and it’s perfect for photographers or even casual picture takers. It’s an 8-inch photo album with an 800×600 LCD color screen and 4GB of internal memory. What makes this photo album worth posting is that it supports RAW. A lot of photographers shoot in RAW and nothing else, so this makes perfect sense.

It also supports a variety of memory cards like CF, SD/HC, MMC, xD, and MS/MSPro. The Photo Book even includes a USB drive! But it’s not a one trick pony. Video playback is also supported and has a battery life of 2.5 hours. All this can be yours for $189, but it won’t be hitting retailers until May.
