Lexar have launched a new site, Digital Photography straplined “Professional Workflow to Drive Your Next Shoot”. DP includes sections featuring pro photogs, tips and tutorials, events and photo gallery.
Joining Sandisk’s folding SD/USB card, Delkin have introduced a similar type of deal, with a removeable cap instead of a hinged one. Wonder if it’s possible to have a USB plug come out the back of a CF…?
I’ve added my Flickr tags in the footer of the page – try ’em out, tell me about all the bugs!
A nice piece of Flickr APIing: the Colr Pickr.
As is often the case with all things Canon, Bob Atkins has quite a detailed preview of the new EOS Rebel XT/350D including a pretty complete specs list.
Potentially interesting new macro from Canon, but EF-S only: Canon EF-S 60 mm F2.8 macro lens. DPReview reports.
Let’s Go Digital (or “LetsGoDigital”, as they call themselves…) have a piece about the follow up to Canon’s 300D/Digital Rebel: the Digital Rebel XT. This’ll be called the 350D in Europe and contrary to the seeming leaking of this item that I commented here previously, Canon has officially announced it. (Then again, maybe they announced it because it was leaked.) Anyway, it looks OK – many of the main gripes with the 300D are fixed (AI Servo, MLU, colour!) It also adds a near-instant on like the 20D and 8Mp – not the same sensor as the 20D, it seems.
Seems pretty good to me.
Epson UK have put a Flash-based simulator of their digital rangefinder on their site, so you can get your mitts on it. Nothing spectacular, but worth a look. Virtual R-D1.
