Ultra-II-SDHC_32GB_130

  • For those photographers who are on a constant quest for larger storage for your camera, you’ll be happy to hear that SanDisk has just announced 32GB and 16GB SDHC cards as well as an 8GB SDHC Plus card in their Ultra II lineup.  They have also upgraded the read and write speeds to 15MB/sec compared to the 10MB/sec of the previous Ultra II cards.  The 32 and 16 GB cards come with a MicroMate USB 2.0 reader.  The 32GB card has an MSRP of $349.99 with the 16GB card set at $179.99.  The 8GB SDHC Plus card’s MSRP is $99.99.  The 16GB and 8GB cards are expected to ship in March with the 32GB card set to ship in April.  Image above courtesy of SanDisk.
  • If you haven’t already heard, Apple has released Aperture 2.0.  Aperture is Apple’s image organization and editing program for professional photographers.  It’s a rival to Adobe’s Photoshop Lightroom and is an asset to any photographer who works on a Mac.  Apple is putting on the Aperture World Tour which is a free seminar to demonstrate the powerful features of the latest version of their program.  There are still a few dates left, so check out the link above and check out the free seminar!
  • Next week, Photoshop World will kick off in Orlando, FL at the Orange County Convention Center.  If you haven’t bought your tickets yet, what are you waiting for?!  I won’t have the opportunity to go this year, and I’m really bummed about it.  The amount of knowledge regarding Photoshop and digital photography that will be under one roof is nothing short of spectacular!  If you’re free next week, head on over and reserve your place at the world’s largest Photoshop convention!  Here’s the link.
  • If it’s been awhile since you have visited PDN’s website, you should be sure to check it out.  Photo District News provides the latest and greatest in what’s going on throughout the world of photography.  You can subscribe to the magazine and exclusive content on their website for $65.oo for 12 months.  Definitely worth it.  Here’s the link.

That’s it for today.  I’m heading off to work and wouldn’t you know it… I have a couple of shoots this week for a project at work.  I’ll reveal those details in the next month or so.  Have a great day and I’ll see you here again tomorrow!
