Memory Card Cases
That became a pertinent question for me lately as the SDHC/SDXC memory cards I've most recently purchased came without the little plastic case included. While I think the manufacturers should include the inexpensive cases by default, none have yet asked me for my opinion. The other problem is that I've started to accumulate a variety of memory card case sizes that have become at least slightly annoying to deal with.
 
I was looking for something very compact but wanted at least a little protection for the cards. My memory cards are usually kept in other cases or my pocket where they have an additional layer of protection afforded them.
 
For me, the right solution was found on eBay. For $6.95 with free standard shipping, you get 10 small plastic cases just large enough to comfortably hold SDHC cards. I purchased two lots and now have all of my cards neatly stored in much less space than the pre-latest-purchased cards consumed.
 
If you prefer the more protective, larger case size or if you need to store CompactFlash/CF cards, this eBay auction may have the cases you are looking for. Same seller and same price.
 
For more rugged and larger capacity memory card cases, check out B&H's memory card case category. Notable entries include those from Ruggard, Pelican and Think Tank Photo.

Nikon Japan posted this video a few days ago. I get the feeling I've seen it before – but maybe it just reminds me of Sigma's promotional manufacturing plant videos (video 1, video 2). Either way, enjoy this brief look into the production of NIKKOR lenses!

Sigma Logo
From Sigma:
 
The Sigma Corporation is pleased to announce that the “SIGMA Mount Conversion Service” and “SIGMA 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 DC MACRO OS HSM/ SIGMA 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 DC MACRO HSM” won TIPA Awards 2014.
 
SIGMA Mount Conversion Service
 
Name of Award: TIPA Awards 2014 Best Photo Service
 
While photographers might be attracted to a new format or different brand camera, the ownership and investment in legacy lenses of a specific mount may stop them from exploring new options for their image making. The SIGMA Mount Conversion Service offers the opportunity to change the mount on a specific set of SIGMA brand lenses, regardless of the mount, to Canon, Nikon, Sony, Pentax, Micro Four thirds and Sony E-mount. Pricing depends on the type and focal length of the original lens. Service details are handled by the local SIGMA representative or distributor within each country, worldwide, and takes from two to four weeks to complete.
 
SIGMA 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 DC MACRO OS HSM/ SIGMA 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 DC MACRO HSM
 
Name of Award: TIPA Awards 2014 Best Entry Level DSLR Lens
 
The amazingly compact (2.8 x 3.4 inches) and affordable 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM (27-300mm equivalent) lens is exclusively for APS-C sized sensors. It is smaller and lighter than the previous version and offers a closer focusing distance to boot. It also has a newly incorporated SLD glass element plus 3 aspheric elements among its 16 elements, 13 groups construction. The lens incorporates an optical stabilizer (OS) system for those cameras that do not have OS built-in, with automatic panning detection to shift the OS to one axis. It has a close focusing range of about 1.5 feet throughout the focal length range, making it extremely versatile for close-up photography.
 
Note: Sigma also received a "Best Design" award for its dp Quattro camera lineup.
 
B&H carries the Sigma 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM lens.
