Lawrencew: Ripoff UK pricing as per normal.
EF-S 24mm is $149, but will be £179 in the UK. That means the UK price is £149+VAT. Whereas US buyers will be able to buy one for about £95 at today's exchanges rates.

UK retailers, you can thank Canon UK for sending me to DigitatRev et al instead of spending my money with you...

move to Scotland...maybe some magic will happen soon :)

On SanDisk unveils 512GB Extreme Pro card article (161 comments in total)
In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: Everyone believes SanDisk cards are the most reliable only because they say they are more reliable. I have 10 SD cards of various brands. Only the Crappy Eye-Fi cards have ever failed.

The Eye-Fi cards are very flimsy around the contact points so I expect them to fail. None of the other cards fail.

i get the same doubt too although i do use sandisk cards but my kingston cards never failed me. i buy sandisks just for the sake of peace of mind since i cannot afford to lose the content. having that said, i use kingston cards on half of the occasions too and they work just as great.

In reply to:

Digitall: it's likely that I'm getting old. But this is no new idea. The concept has been used for over 12 years, a portable disk, with varying formats card reader. I'm still in operation. The biggest difference is the WI-FI today. Really the unknown becomes novelty, with other identical products on the market. The brand is Xdrive and got it in Australia. Something similar to this: http://www.steves-digicams.com/images6/xdrive_cards.jpg

When I bought it, there was nothing on the market it at an acceptable price. And the variety was very reduced or none. specifically dedicated to photography and photographers who seek portable storage without many cards, which were extremely expensive. Currently, I do not know if there is more worthwhile to buy more cards and walk lighter. However I think this type of product should use SSD.

+2 on SSD

In reply to:

tompabes2: Nice modern design! Finally someone is moving on. I really don't understand why we're still designign cameras as they were 30 years ago.

with LED lights on the grip?! this is no new design. new design should be a total ergonomics change. adding wifi, GPS, LED (psssh) are just enhancements.
