Panasonic is on a roll lately in the 4K department. Back at CES 2014, we saw the Lumix GH4 Micro Four Thirds 4K camera and the 4K action camera. We saw a 4K VariCam concept camera teased as far back as NAB 2012. Now, we are finally seeing some details on a 4K VariCam model as the camera approaches an official launch. [click to continue…]

SanDisk’s new high-speed Extreme Pro UHS-II cards are now available for pre-order.
Recall that this new line gets its major speed boost from the UHS-II bus interface. Most SD-compatible cameras currently on the market support UHS-I, at best. The only camera so far to support UHS-II is the new Fuji X-T1.
