Memory card prices have dropped like crazy over the past several months. I was just fishing around on Amazon for some new SD cards for my new Nikon D40 (Ken Rockwell thinks its the best bang for your buck right now – I agree) so I would have plenty for the Tour de Georgia in a couple weeks. This time last year, I paid around $100 for a 1 GB CF card. I picked up two 2GB SD cards today for $37. Along the way, I saw several other worthy deals for several types and brands of memory cards. They are as follows:
So, are there too many different types and sizes of memory cards here for you to figure out what you need? What about memory card speeds? Does it matter? How about brands? I’ve put a kind of intro to memory cards post together that will help answer some of these questions whether you’re shopping for just a memory card or two, or whether you’re looking at buying a new digital camera and wondering what the deal is with these memory card thingies. You can read the post by clicking here.
Finally, if you’re thinking about buying a card from ebay (it looks like a real deal right?), read this post to see why you might want to reconsider that plan.
Wondering when you will ever get those thousands of film shots in digital format? Thinking about which scanner is the best to buy for your needs, but you don’t even know what to start looking at? Popular Photography has the run down on all the film scanner 411 and tells you what to look for in a scanner. They even go as far as recommending a model or two. Check it out.
Nothing to read, but something to watch. Take a look at how you can get rid of people cluttering up your photos of that beautiful fountain with Photoshop CS3.
Save some money and hack that disposable camera for repeated uses.
This photographer nailed it.
Nikon “clarified” their full frame policy by stating that Nikon won’t be making a full frame sensor DSLR anytime soon. Translation to Nikon D3 rumor-mongers (*cough, yours truly): If the Nikon D3 comes this year, it’s not gonna have the previously-rumored full frame sensor.
Amateur Photographer has the story on this latest update in the Nikon D3/pro-level DSLR rumor-mill:
Nikon has never ruled out the development of a full-frame digital SLR, but has no immediate launch plans, the company told us during discussions following persistent rumours on AP’s website forum.
Jeremy Gilbert, Nikon’s group marketing manager (pictured), said that if the firm decided to make such a camera it would first need to meet the appropriate quality-to-price ratio. In other words, it would have to be the right quality at a price able to compete in the market. Read more . . . .
No other news on the Nikon D3 or Canon 40D front. As always, I’ll keep you posted when it comes in.
