SanDisk Memory Cards Get Big Price Drops

SanDisk Memory Cards Get Big Price Drops.

SanDisk Extreme 16GB CF

B&H has dropped its prices on SanDisk memory cards across the board, which makes for some solid deals out there now.

Just a couple of weeks ago, I priced the SanDisk Extreme 16GB CF cards at around $63 with a volume discount.  Those same cards are now $49.95 – even if you only buy one card.

Here’s a link to all of the SanDisk stuff on sale at B&H.

Popphoto-This Nikon D3 DSLR Halloween Costume Actually Works

I don’t like to post a lot of cutesy, camera-shaped stuff here on — there are other sites out there if you’re into cakes and pillows that look like DSLRs. But, this fully-functioning DSLR costume is one of the coolest things I’ve seen in quite some time.

Card-carrying camera nerd Tyler Card built the body of his killer camera costume out of cardboard and a five gallon bucket. Then, he built a normal-sized Nikon DSLR and a flash into it, using a remote shutter cable so he can actually walk around taking pictures. Perhaps the coolest part is that the resulting images are then displayed on the back of the costume, using a hacked laptop LCD screen.

Photography Bay-DxO Filmpack 3 Overview

At PhotoPlus 2011, I sat down with one of the software developers at DxO Labs to talk about the recently introduced DxO FilmPack 3, which is photo processing software that emulates the look of classic film types.

It was interesting to hear how the film looks are developed for use in the digital workflow.  Several of the sample prints that I’ve seen offer a compelling duplication of film grain and color.  If you’ve ever shot with film before, you will appreciate the science and effort that DxO Labs puts into crafting the film presets by using the actual analog film we shot with in the past, including some that are no longer available for purchase.

Photography Bay-Canon 1D X, Hands-On

I spent a few hours at the Canon EOS & PIXMA event this evening.  The core of the event was promoting the new PIXMA PRO-1 and the fact that it was built in conjunction with the EOS camera system – to take full advantage of what these cameras are capable of.  Seeing several of the large prints from the PIXMA PRO-1, it’s clear that this new printer delivers on the quality.  The bigger attraction for me, however, was the fact that there were several Canon 1D X’s to put in my hands.
