On Jan 9, 2012, the SD Association announced the addition of wireless to the SD card standards. To say that this announcement has not been well-received by SD Association member Eye-Fi is a strong understatement.
 
Eye-Fi CEO Yuval Koren has posted a statement on the Eye-Fi blog.

I added some sample pictures to the Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC Lens Review.
 
Sorry for the lack of wider angle shots. When selecting down the pictures to include with this review, I apparently was not liking the wider angle compositions I was making while working with this lens. Most of the shots I had to work with were in the over-200mm range. Hopefully you will at least enjoy those.

It is a sad day. From Kodak:
 
ROCHESTER, N.Y.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Eastman Kodak Company (“Kodak” or the “Company”) announced today that it and its U.S. subsidiaries filed voluntary petitions for chapter 11 business reorganization in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York.
 
The business reorganization is intended to bolster liquidity in the U.S. and abroad, monetize non-strategic intellectual property, fairly resolve legacy liabilities, and enable the Company to focus on its most valuable business lines. The Company has made pioneering investments in digital and materials deposition technologies in recent years, generating approximately 75% of its revenue from digital businesses in 2011.
 
Kodak has obtained a fully-committed, $950 million debtor-in-possession credit facility with an 18-month maturity from Citigroup to enhance liquidity and working capital. The credit facility is subject to Court approval and other conditions precedent. The Company believes that it has sufficient liquidity to operate its business during chapter 11, and to continue the flow of goods and services to its customers in the ordinary course.
 
Kodak expects to pay employee wages and benefits and continue customer programs. Subsidiaries outside of the U.S. are not subject to proceedings and will honor all obligations to suppliers, whenever incurred. Kodak and its U.S. subsidiaries will honor all post-petition obligations to suppliers in the ordinary course.
 
“Kodak is taking a significant step toward enabling our enterprise to complete its transformation,” said Antonio M. Perez, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “At the same time as we have created our digital business, we have also already effectively exited certain traditional operations, closing 13 manufacturing plants and 130 processing labs, and reducing our workforce by 47,000 since 2003. Now we must complete the transformation by further addressing our cost structure and effectively monetizing non-core IP assets. We look forward to working with our stakeholders to emerge a lean, world-class, digital imaging and materials science company.”
 
“After considering the advantages of chapter 11 at this time, the Board of Directors and the entire senior management team unanimously believe that this is a necessary step and the right thing to do for the future of Kodak,” Mr. Perez continued. “Our goal is to maximize value for stakeholders, including our employees, retirees, creditors, and pension trustees. We are also committed to working with our valued customers.
 
“Chapter 11 gives us the best opportunities to maximize the value in two critical parts of our technology portfolio: our digital capture patents, which are essential for a wide range of mobile and other consumer electronic devices that capture digital images and have generated over $3 billion of licensing revenues since 2003; and our breakthrough printing and deposition technologies, which give Kodak a competitive advantage in our growing digital businesses.”
 
Mr. Perez concluded, “The Board of Directors, the senior management team and I would like to underscore our appreciation for the hard work and loyalty of our employees. Kodak exemplifies a culture of collaboration and innovation. Our employees embody that culture and are essential to our future success.”
 
Kodak has taken this step after preliminary discussions with key constituencies and intends to work toward a consensual reorganization in the best interests of its stakeholders. Kodak expects to complete its U.S.-based restructuring during 2013.
 
The Company and its Board of Directors are being advised by Lazard, FTI Consulting Inc. and Sullivan & Cromwell LLP. In addition, Dominic DiNapoli, Vice Chairman of FTI Consulting, will serve as Chief Restructuring Officer to support the management team as to restructuring matters during the chapter 11 case.
 
More information about Kodak’s Chapter 11 filing is available on the Internet at www.kodaktransforms.com. Information for suppliers and vendors is available at (800) 544-7009 or (585) 724-6100.
 
Kodak will be filing monthly operating reports with the Bankruptcy Court and also plans to post these monthly operating reports on the Investor Relations section of Kodak.com. The Company will continue to file quarterly and annual reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which will also be available in the Investor Relations section of Kodak.com.

As I mentioned yesterday, B&H is accepting preorders for the game-changing Canon EOS C300 Digital Cinema System.
 
Note that this camera will not (initially at least) be available at all Canon authorized dealers. Only 17 dealers will be authorized to sell the Canon Cinema EOS System. Many third party accessories should be available by release date which is listed as on or after Jan 30th.
 
The Canon EOS C300 Digital Cinema Camera (EF or PL Mounts) are available for preorder at B&H for only $15,999.00 - a huge discount from the Canon EOS C300 Digital Cinema Camera press release-estimated price of $20,000.
 
The Canon Zoom Cinema Lenses for the Cinema EOS System are also available for preorder at B&H. The Canon CN-E 14.5-60mm T2.6 L S Cinema Zoom Lens (EF or PL Mount) is priced at $42,750.00 and the CN-E 30-300mm T2.95-3.7 L S EF Mount Cinema Zoom Lens (EF or PL Mount) is priced at $44,650.00. Both prices are lower than expected - the Canon Prime and Zoom Cinema Lenses for Cinema EOS System press release listed the prices as $45,000.00 and $47,000.00 respectively.
