Transcend High Capacity SDXC UHS-I Memory Cards
August 16, 2013 - Transcend Information, Inc. (Transcend ), a worldwide leader in storage and multimedia products, today announced the introduction of 128GB 600x and 64GB 300x SDXC UHS-I cards. Combining high capacity with full support of the Ultra-High Speed Class 1 specification, the new SDXC UHS-I memory cards effectively ensure ample storage space for capturing professional-quality images and high-definition videos, while offering enhanced camera response and significantly faster data transfers.
 
SDHC/SDXC UHS-I Cards
Featuring capacities ranging from 8GB to an enormous 128GB, Transcend's SDHC/SDXC UHS-I memory cards are fully equipped to handle the increased capacity requirements of professional photography and filmmaking. For instance, the new 128GB SDXC UHS-I card can store more than 20,000 high-resolution jpeg images (12 megapixel camera, 6MB file size), over 8,500 RAW images (based on 14MB file size), or a full 32 hours of 1080p High-Definition footage (1920x1080 9Mb/s H.264 AVC compression). Moreover, thanks to the use of the exFAT file system that can support files larger than 4GB, Transcend’s SDXC UHS-I cards are ideal for continuous burst-mode shooting and extended video recording.
 
Fast File Transfer
Highly recommended for professional digital camera and camcorder enthusiasts, Transcend’s new 128GB 600x and 64GB 300x ultra-high speed memory cards help realize the full high-resolution recording capabilities of today’s cutting-edge camera equipment with transfer speeds of up to 90MB/s and 45MB/s respectively. These blazing fast speeds not only ensure maximum shooting performance but also provide quick and seamless file transfers between card and computer. Pairing the new 128GB 600x SDXC UHS-I card with Transcend’s RDF8 USB 3.0 multi-card reader or the handy RDF5 USB 3.0 card reader with built-in USB port, for example, files as large as one gigabyte can be transferred in just twelve seconds.
 
Free Photo Recovery Software
For added value, each Transcend memory card includes a free download of Transcend’s exclusive RecoveRx™ photo recovery software - an extraordinarily effective tool for bringing back accidentally deleted or lost files. All Transcend memory cards are fully tested for compatibility and reliability, and carry Transcend’s renowned Lifetime Warranty. The new 128GB 600x SDXC UHS-I card is currently available for a suggested price of US$279, while the 64GB 300x SDXC UHS-I card is available for US$109

About the European Imaging and Sound Association
 
EISA is the unique association of 50 special interest magazines from 20 European countries. Internationally known for the European EISA Awards, EISA started in 1982 when the editors-in-chief from five European photo magazines came together to select “The Camera of the Year” for the first time. They had no idea that out of this meeting EISA - the European Imaging and Sound Association - would emerge some years later. This historic moment took place in 1989 after another 10 photo magazines had joined the group in the meanwhile.
 
Later on another two panels where developed inside EISA, the Video Panel and the Audio Panel. Following the natural evolution from pure audio to multichannel entertainment this latest panel gave origin later on to the Audio/HT Panel. It was only several years later, in 2002, that the joining together of several magazines from EISA that were making coverage of the Mobile Electronics area and several other magazines belonging to the then extinguished ECAP association gave origin to the In-Car Electronics Panel.
 
In 2007 the existing Convergence Panel was renamed as Mobile Devices Panel to give an effective answer to more and more products that belong to the areas of audio, video and mobile at the same time.
 
And here we are now - 50 magazines from 20 different European countries joined together forming the worlds most prestigious multimedia magazines association.
 
In June each year, the editors-in-chief from all EISA member magazines meet to decide which of products analyzed in their publications during the past year deserve the coveted EISA Award. The six categories under consideration are: Audio, Video, Home Theater, Photography, In-Car Electronics Electronics and Mobile Devices.

From Tamron USA:
 
Expanded Tamron repair technician and customer service staff at Tamron USA's Long Island Headquarters makes the dream a reality
 
August 14, 2013, Commack, N.Y.- Tamron USA announced that the company now offers 3-business day repair service turnaround for photographic lenses. This achievement works to alleviate customer concerns that when they send in a product for repair service, they may be left without that product for some time. Now, all lenses received in our system by noon EST are estimated the same day and moved onto the next stage. Lenses under warranty (Tamron USA offers a 6-year limited warranty on its photographic lenses) are repaired and shipped back to the customer within three business days. Out of warranty lenses are repaired and shipped back within three business days of the customer's approval of the repair estimate.
 
"We are thrilled here at Tamron USA to supply our customers with a 3-business day turnaround time," stated Pat Simonetti, Director Technical & Customer Service/Distribution. "With the support of our parent company, we were able to take the necessary action to build upon our staff and make this dream a reality. This accomplishment was and continues to be a real team endeavor. I truly appreciate the efforts from all of those involved in this project," said Simonetti.
 
The Background
 
Customers may anguish about sending a lens in for repair, expecting that they could be without their favorite or workhorse lens for some time. Tamron Co., Ltd. recognized this and challenged its subsidiaries to reach a standard 3-business day turnaround service to make customers feel more confident that, in the unlikely event their lens requires service, they would not be long without it. "By speeding up the repair turnaround time, we can alleviate our customers' anxiety about repairs and thereby increase their satisfaction of and confidence in Tamron products," stated Tak Inoue, President and CEO of Tamron USA. Tamron USA took dramatic steps over the past year to increase the number of repair technicians that work on photographic lenses as well as customer service staff. Internal systems were changed to accommodate the inspection of lenses received by noon of each day and route the lenses to the proper technician for expert repair. Repaired lenses are then given top priority in the distribution center to ensure the product is on its way back to the customer within the established guidelines.

Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Lens on Full Frame Camera
While the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Lens is designed to cover only an APS-C-sized camera sensor, this lens mounts and functions on a full frame DSLR. And the vignetting is not as bad as you might expect.
 
The image accompanying this post is a best-case example. Check out the complete full frame vignetting comparison to get the entire picture.
