If you’ve ever stumbled upon the Science Channel’s show ‘How It’s Made’ then you know the manufacturing process of common and rather mundane items can be fascinating. Well, this Friday, Dec. 28, cine cameras will be featured as one of the items. The episode will be on at 8PM ET. [click to continue…]
A little late to the game, but there’s a couple hours left to grab this deal of the day from Amazon on SanDisk memory cards at up to 70% off.
The solid deals on Lexar Pro CF and SD cards have been extended through October. There are several cards up for grabs and some really good deals to be had.
Check out the full selection of deals here at B&H Photo.
SanDisk revealed at Photokina 2012 that it will be pushing toward memory card production on the new CFast2.0 specification memory cards and will not be delevoping XQD cards.
As of today, the only camera to support the XQD memory card format is the Nikon D4. And while it is a great camera, no doubt, the single high-end model is not enough to push the demand in the market towards XQD as “the other memory card.”
CFast2.0 is a specification from the CompactFlash Association, which also designates the specification for current CF cards and the newer XQD cards. CFast2.0 specs offer a theoretical performance up to 600MB/s data transfer speeds.
SanDisk is currently sampling new CFast2.0 cards to camera manufacturers to see if they will bite on the new specification in spite of the overwhelming move toward the SD card standard. Medium format camera maker Phase One has already committed to putting the CFast2.0 cards to work in new cameras due to the higher performance over other card formats.
B&H Photo has a load of deals on Lexar Professional CF and SD cards right now. The deals are valid through August 31; however, they could run out of stock sooner as has been the case with prior memory card deals. Check out the full selection of deals here at B&H Photo.
Amazon has a Black Friday deal page on SD cards, which contains some pretty good deals, including 32GB Class 10 SHDC cards as low as $34.99.
There are plenty of deals to sift through over at Amazon.com.
