SDHC Flash Memory Performance on Canon EOS 1D Mark IV

SDHC Flash Memory Performance on Canon EOS 1D Mark IV

Digital SLR cameras generally save their images to one of two different types of memory card: the majority support CompactFlash (CF), while others such as Nikon's D3000 and the Canon Rebel XS write data onto Secure Digital (SD) memory cards. The latter are inexpensive and favorable for their smaller form factor and better physical contact surface instead of fragile pins. Some DSLRs, however, have dual card slots, such as the Canon Digital EOS 1D Mark II N or the Nikon D300s.

That day has come, so read on to find out how Class 10 SDHCs stack against UDMA-rated CF on the Mark IV.

Samsung rugged memory cards are water, shock & magnet proof

It seems somewhat perverse - or at least flippant - to want to buy an SDHC card simply because it looks so swanky, but Samsung's new consumer memory card range is cutting quite the dash with its champagne finish.  Still, once the 8GB SDHC is slotted into whatever gadget you've bought it for you can't see the aesthetics, so happily Samsung have given it some other strengths too.  For a start, the company reckons you'll never lose data from them.

ENT Android MID Makes Another Appearance; This Time With Live Images

Back at the beginning of the month, we had a whole slew of Android information come swirling into our offices. We did our best to cover it, and part of that coverage was this little piece of Mobile Internet Device (MID) Heaven. It's a pretty slick, piano-black piece of tech that's running some might Android goodness. And, despite the coverage we splattered all over it before, we were lacking any real live shots of the device. Well, now's as good a time for change as any other, right?
