A-DATA have announced their latest SDHC card, the Turbo Series Class 10 offering up to 22MBps transfer rates with devices that support the SD v3.0 standard. The 16GB SDHC card is intended for DSLR and HD video users, and promises 1920 x 1080 HD support and burst sequential shot support.
Canon Japan have unveiled two new camcorders, each recording AVCHD footage at up to 24Mbps Full HD. The Canon iVIS HF21 and iVIS HF S11 have 64GB of onboard storage each, plus an SDHC card slot, and can record just under six hours of 24Mbps 1920 x 1080 footage to their internal memory. They also use Canon's DIGIC DV III Video processor.
If the design of Samsung's HMX-U10 camcorder is a little too outré for your tastes, the company has two more traditionally-shaped offerings today. The Samsung SMX-K40 and SMX-K45 both conform to the standard palmcorder format, but actually they're not quite as technically capable as the U10; each can record up to 720 x 480 resolution, rather than their upright sibling's 1080p.
Samsung have unveiled their latest camcorder, and unlike some of the company's more serious models the HMX-U10 has casual point-and-shoot in mind. A compact 56 x 103 x 15.5mm with a kick in the design to better fit your hand, the upright camera boasts both 10-megapixel stills capture and 1920 x 1080 Full HD video.
Intended to take on the Flip UltraHD, which we reviewed back in May, the HMX-U10 records to SDHC card and uses the H.264 video codec. Around the back there's a 2-inch LCD for framing and reviewing, together with basic controls; the 1/2.3-inch CMOS lens is fixed focus and seemingly lacks any sort of zoom.
Eye-Fi have announced their latest wireless memory card, the 4GB Eye-Fi Pro. Using the SDHC format, the new Eye-Fi Pro offers the usual automatic wireless transfer of images from digital cameras to a computer or website; however it also adds new file-type support, increased control over which images are synchronized, more flexible WiFi connectivity and video functionality.
The Eye-Fi Pro 4GB now includes "Selective Transfer", which allows users to choose which photos and/or videos are uploaded. This bypasses the issue with the older cards where every shot was transferred; according to Eye-Fi all users will now be able to use Selective Transfer, not just those with the Pro 4GB. Images are selected by locking them through the camera's own menus.
iriver have announced a new PMP, the NV Classic, which not only handles your multimedia playback but also includes a DMB digital TV and radio tuner and GPS navigation. The iriver NV Classic measures 181 x 120 x 21.5 mm and is fronted by a 7-inch WVGA 800 x 480 touchscreen and the company's "Magazine" UI.
Hot on the heels of the Panasonic HDC-SD10 and HDC-TM10 Full-HD camcorders announced yesterday come two more Full-HD models from the company. The Panasonic HDC-TM350 and HDC-TM30 each have integrated flash storage and an SDHC card slot: 64GB in the TM350, and 32GB in the smaller TM30.
Panasonic have taken the wraps off of two Full-HD AVCHD camcorders, which it claims are the lightest of their kind. The Panasonic HDC-SD10 and HDC-TM10 each have 16x optical zooms, optical image stabilization (OIS) and touchscreen controls, and record to SD/SDHC memory cards. The Panasonic HDC-TM10 also has 8GB of its own internal storage.
After no small amount of waiting, Sony have officially announced their trio of new DSLRs. The Sony Alpha 230 and 330 are both 10.2-megapixels, while the Alpha 380 climbs to 14.2-megapixels, and all have SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization that's independent of lens. Interestingly for Sony cameras, the DSLRs can use SD/SDHC memory cards as well as the company's own Memory Stick format.
