It's only available on a couple of the actual 777 models, just as a heads up.  I'm assuming they'd include it for those, but who knows.

@scandinavian13 Back during the Flight for Tony interview with froogle, Robert said they had somebody working on it and will try to implement it in the 300ER release

The cameras are only offered on the 300ER in the real world correct?

My understanding is the -300 and the -300ER

The -300ER has the Nose and Tail cams.

The 200ER/LR/300/300ER have the gallery cams! 

I think captain sim did an EXCELLENT job on their EFB!!! They, PMDG, just needs to make the same thing but uploading PDF files instead of Image files!!! :)

Unless I'm sorely mistaken if you're looking for an EFB on this release you're going to be disappointed. The amount of money it would take to license all that navdata on every PMDG bird sold is simply massive. In the thousands per unit. Captain Sim does have an EFB but in my limited experience it was sort of a joke. Since PMDG can't model this accurately, it won't be included for now. A perfectly good EFB is an iPad and SkyVector (for the states at least)

In that respect, Adobe did an EXCELLENT job on their Acrobat Reader!!!   :lol:

 

('Cause it offers the same functions as the CS777 EFB.)

Thirding it - CS's is just a PDF reader. An EFB is WAY more than that  :P

If we ever do the EFB, it's going to be like the real thing, not a glorified jpg/pdf viewer.

 

I'm not sure what sense cabin galley cameras make in FSX either.

I know aerosoft made a static image appear in the A320's galley cam, not really useful but still a nice touch.

It is just a suggestion. A real EFB would be much better!

Yes you are right about that. Obviously something  comming from PMDG must be over the top!! I am really looking forward for a PROPER EFB from PMDG!

Think it'd be pretty erey having one LOL.. How are the 777-300/ER cameras coming along? Rob said someone was working on them in January, but nothing since.

They should know by now not to do that  :rolleyes:
