From those numbers, it seems their revenue per unit in the interchangeable lens market is falling quite a lot.

On article Opinion: Why the Canon XC10 is a big deal (797 comments in total)

That spec table is meaningless, because the sample video looks absolutely awful.

This is the beginning of a very relevant transition in Canon, from a camera and lens maker to a self-help book publisher. About time.

That is unheard of!!
Oh, no, wait, I did the exact same thing 18 months ago...

What surprised me most is that the image didn't look "old" by itself: the lens in that 100-year-old camera is slow but not bad at all.

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

Komputerbay 256GB 1200x CF cards have been in customers' hands for weeks, and they're going for $500 or so. First one you can actually trust, I'll give them that.

Also: the market for this is people shooting RAW video with a 5D3 and magic lantern. It will only hold 50 minutes of footage. And the comparable 128GB card is $600.

In reply to:

mini23: 90 MB/s means 2:30 mins footage per 16 GB card or 10:00 mins per 64 GB card.
I hope you video guys have a couple 100 fast cards ready at hand. When a 16 GB 1000x Lexar professional costs about 80€ you'll have to spend like €2000-€3000 only on cards (for a wedding e.g.) ...

OR you use clean HDMI output of course (is this even possible with RAW footage?).

Thank god I don't do video... ;-)

This hack is taking the IQ from a $3500 camera to what only cameras of >$15K can do. (well, maybe the Sony FS700, at $10K with the RAW recorder, could fight this too).

So, a couple of Transcend 128GB 1000x cards for $700 and you have an awesome movie-making machine with storage for 48 minutes of footage. Not bad if you ask me. But not for everybody, of course (working with these RAW files is painful).

Edit: these cards:
