SanDisk Extreme microSDXC Memory Card (64GB)
From SanDisk:
 
MILPITAS, Calif., July 9, 2013 – SanDisk Corporation (NASDAQ: SNDK), a global leader in flash memory storage solutions, today announced the SanDisk Extreme microSDHC and microSDXC UHS-I memory cards, the ideal companions for users who want fast expanded memory for the newest smartphones, tablets and cameras.
 
“The SanDisk Extreme microSDXC card allows users to do more with their devices,” said Susan Park, director, retail product marketing, SanDisk. “Our high-performance and high-capacity microSD cards enable consumers to take advantage of the high-quality HD video and imaging capabilities in the latest 4G smartphones, tablets and action cameras.”
 
The microSDXC card is equipped with the fastest speeds available on the market, with up to 80MB/sec read and up to 50MB/sec write speeds, allowing faster shot-to-shot performance, rapid data transfer, fast action photography, continuous burst mode and quick file transfers. Additionally, this memory card is an ideal choice for Android-powered devices with 64GB of capacity, providing an instant storage upgrade for capturing and keeping data.
 
Also compatible with the latest cameras and sport/action Full HD camcorders, the card’s extreme speed allows users to capture amazing pictures and videos. The card’s UHS Speed Class 1 (U1) and Speed Class 10 video recording ratings ensure users will enjoy higher performance than ordinary memory cards can deliver for Full HD and even 4K HD video recording and playback.
 
“Most high-end smartphones are now driven by high-speed quad-core processors, which deliver Full HD content and applications to large, high-resolution external displays," said Stuart Robinson, director, handset component technologies service, Strategy Analytics. “Such applications require high memory bandwidth which is ideal for the SanDisk Extreme microSDXC card, the world's fastest microSDXC memory solution.”
 
The SanDisk Extreme microSDHC and microSDXC UHS-I cards are built for and tested in harsh conditions. They are waterproof, shockproof and resist x-rays. In addition, the new cards include:

  • An adapter for compatibility with full size SD/SDHC/SDXC supporting devices
  • A downloadable offer for RescuePro® Deluxe data recovery software for bringing accidentally deleted images back to life
  • A lifetime limited warranty

SanDisk Extreme microSDHC and microSDXC cards are available worldwide now in 16GB to 64GB capacities carrying MSRPs of $59.99 to $199.99.
 
Adorama carries SanDisk memory cards.

Cactus Laser Trigger LV5
Adorama has the Cactus Laser Trigger LV5 in stock with free shipping.
 
I can think of several uses for these laser triggers – photographing water droplets or capturing a race's finish line are at the top of the list, though.
 
I [Sean] wish these had been available in January when I tried capturing the shot below. While I eventually got what I wanted, it took about 50 attempts before I timed it just right.

Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Lens
The Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Lens is the first "Sports" model from Sigma's Global Vision lineup to hit the streets. The review page now has links to image quality, flare, vignetting and distortion test results along with product images and lens specs/measurements.
 
I'm still trying to find out exactly what is new with this lens, but the image quality of the lens in my hands right now is impressive – noticeably better than my previous version lens (comparison).

"This is The-Digital-Picture.com's Weekend Recap for the week ending July 6th, 2013
 
In the news...
 
On Monday, Nikon published an updated “Lens Vibration Reduction Performance Chart” to coincide with newly introduced CIPA standards. The new standards established by the CIPA mean that Vibration Reduction performance values advertised before July 1, 2013 may be inaccurate.
 
Also on Monday, Canon North America celebrated one million views on YouTube. This milestone came less than 4 months after Canon celebrated a similar milestone – 1 million minutes watched on its YouTube channel.
 
On Tuesday, Canon announced the EOS 70D. The new camera features an all-new 20.2 megapixel sensor, a DIGIC 5 processor, built-in WiFi, intelligent viewfinder and a 7 frames-per-second burst rate. And speaking of the sensor, the 70D is the first camera to feature Canon’s Dual Pixel AF system. The new AF system allows for instant, precise, continuous focusing in live view and movie recording. The new technology is touted as being a “game changer” by Canon; we certainly look forward to putting it through its paces first hand.
 
And, we have a three-way tie for our deal of the week…
 
On Wednesday, we posted two deals from Adorama where you could get a Canon EOS M with 22mm f/2 STM lens for $299.00, or an EOS M with the 18-55mm IS STM lens for $349.00 – both with free shipping and 2% Rewards. For perspective, the EOS M with the 22mm lens originally debuted for $799.00.
 
And on Thursday, we posted another deal from Adorama where you could get the Canon EOS 6D plus EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM Lens kit with the PIXMA PRO-100 Printer and Photo Paper for $1,999.51 after $400.00 mail in rebate. At that price, it’s like buying the camera and getting the lens, printer, and paper – for free.
 
Note: Deals have expired.
 
This has been the The-Digital-Picture.com’s Weekend Recap. Thanks for listening, and as always, happy shooting!"
