FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

NEW PRODUCT TARGETS EXPANDING
$1-2 BILLION CONSUMER AND BUSINESS DIGITAL IMAGE VIEWING MARKETS

ROY, Utah, June 30, 2000 - Iomega Corporation, (NYSE:IOM), a global leader in data management solutions, today announced that its new digital imaging product, FotoShow(, was nominated for a CNET Best of Show Award at PC Expo, which concluded yesterday in New York. The FotoShow( image center was nominated by CNET for its "Best Vision of the Future" category. The product, equipped with PictureIQ(tm) software, will arrive at retail this fall, allowing both consumers and businesses to view digital photos on a television as well as store, organize, edit and share photos with family, friends, clients and business associates.

"Considering the number of new products unveiled by companies this week at PC Expo, this recognition for the FotoShow image center makes all of us at Iomega very proud," said Bruce Albertson, president and CEO, Iomega Corporation. "We expect the digital camera market to continue to grow rapidly over the next several years. So, for the consumer who not only wants to safely store images taken with their digital camera equipment as well as the convenience of sharing those images away from the confines of their personal computer, the FotoShow image center is going to be a 'must have' when it arrives at retail later this year."

Iomega expects the market for digital camera equipment to grow dramatically over the next five years. InfoTrends Research Group estimates that 13.9 billion consumer digital photos will be taken this year alone.

Iomega Zip(r)-Based Portable FotoShow(tm) Image Center
Digital photos saved onto digital camera memory cards can be inserted into the Compact Flash or Smart Media card slots on the FotoShow(tm) image center. With the press of a button, pictures can be quickly transferred from a memory card to a Zip(r) disk even when the device is not connected to a TV or PC. When connected to a PC, the FotoShow(tm) image center functions as a Zip 250MB USB drive, enabling consumers to transfer photos easily to the FotoShow(tm) image center from any source - including the hard drive, scanned pictures, pictures attached to personal e-mails, or those downloaded from the Internet - for later viewing on the television. When connected to the television, the FotoShow(tm) image center functions as a photo viewer, editor, organizer and storage device, thus creating a portable "digital photo album."

The FotoShow(tm) image center, with built-in PictureIQ(tm) technology, will offer consumers easy-to-use digital photography capabilities including:
* photo album and slideshow creation;
* red-eye removal;
* cropping;
* color correction and special effects;
* image rotation;
* and the ability to select themes for slide shows, including background templates, photo borders and matting, and music.

The portability and ease of use of the FotoShow(tm) image center will make it an ideal appliance for sharing photos with family and friends anywhere a television is available. The storage capability of Iomega's Zip(r) drive creates a safe, practical environment for enjoying family memories anytime, anywhere. An optional 12-volt adapter allows for use in mobile applications such as an automobile, boat or camper.

Freeing the Business Consumer...In A $1 billion Digital Imaging Market
The FotoShow(tm) image center also has business applications, since multi-media presentations can be saved to Zip(r) disks as a series of JPEG images and then viewed on television monitors, eliminating the need for laptop computers or expensive projectors to run programs.

"The FotoShow image center will have tremendous potential for the professional who regularly gives presentations and who wants the opportunity to showcase material without the need for computers or projectors," said Albertson. "With this product, the days of having to arrive 15 to 30 minutes before a meeting to set up a presentation, or the need to purchase expensive equipment, will be gone. Presenters will be able to literally 'plug and play' their material on available television sets."
