On SanDisk offers 'world's first' 256GB CompactFlash card article (70 comments in total)

MrTaikitso: For the last 25 years or more, I have logged every purchase I have ever made, from a bus ride to a computer or car. Recently found the details for an 8MB Sony MemoryStick that I purchased in 2001. That's eight megabytes. Price? £90 or so. (About $140.)

Today, that would get you a tad more memory in the Gigabyte range. We're talking a 1000 or more fold increase in performance to price ratio. That 256GB Sandisk card should be at the most £25 in 10 years, although I think it may be a lot sooner.

(Ironic, the price of that 8MB MemoryStick would buy you an entry level point and shoot today with a 2G SD card on the side!)

Still remember my first digital camera. A Nikon Coolpix 950. 1,9 mpix, and it costed me 9995 danish kroner - 1340 €, 1790 $ or 1123 £. And then the CF-card 2995 danish kroner - 401 €, 337 £ or 536 $ - the biggest and the best, 128 megabytes (not gigabytes).

Still got it, of nostalgic reasons - and still works on AA-batteries :-)

More expensive than my brand new Canon EOS 70D with 128 gigabytes of memorycards - so it's a lot cheaper today to be on the beat - and we still complain.

On Canon acknowledges 'light leak' in the EOS 5D Mark III article (257 comments in total)

A lot of people obviosly bought a camera they in reality couldn't afford. I've seen a lot of the "affected" people wanting Canon to cut $1000 off the price.

The problem also exists on some 5D2 and on my 60D, and has never been a problem. It exists on several Nikon's too if you test by shooting the inside of a lenscap at ISO 800 or above. Lokk it up on Vimeo or Youtube.

I'm still in the market for a 5D3 when it hits the retailers shelfs here in Denmark.

Henrik NJ: I'm excited to see what will happen to the rest of EU.

In Denmark D800 is listed at DKR 17995 - 18745 = UKP 2023 - 2108
In Sweden D800 is listed at SEK 24990 = UKP 2341
In Germany D800 is listed at €2899 = UKP 2424

It can't only be in the UK they have made a "mistake" on the price if that's their excuse, it will be in the whole EU.

You're absolutely right about the high danish taxes and moms (like vat). We pay about 180% on cars !!!! The prices in Denmark is including moms, and there is no extra tax on still-cameras (under 30 min video-recording). Unlike many other things, cameras have always been cheap (not cheap enough) in Denmark compared to other EU-states.
