Lexar - Newsroom - Press Releases

Lexar - Newsroom - Press Releases: "Lexar, a leader in advanced digital media and accessories, has introduced Professional UDMA (Ultra Direct Memory Access) memory cards, the latest addition to the company's award-winning Professional line of high-performance cards. When paired with a UDMA-enabled device, such as Lexar's new Professional FireWire 800 Reader, UDMA cards improve the professional photographer's digital imaging experience by reducing the time needed to download captured images to a destination computer. In addition, the benefits of Lexar Professional UDMA memory cards extend well beyond card-to-computer transfer rates, to improved in-camera performance in several UDMA-enabled digital camera backs and digital SLR cameras expected to be announced later this year. Speed-rated at 300x, or capable of a minimum sustained write speed of 45MB per second, and available in capacities of 2GB, 4GB, and 8GB, new Lexar Professional UDMA cards deliver a 125% performance improvement over Lexar's previous generation 133x CompactFlash® product line when the card is used with a UDMA-enabled device.

GeoSpatial Experts Packages GPS-Ready Camera in Photo-Mapping Bundle - Geospatial Solutions

GeoSpatial Experts Packages GPS-Ready Camera in Photo-Mapping Bundle - Geospatial Solutions: "GeoSpatial Experts has announced the availability of the Ricoh 500SE GPS-digital camera in a new photo-mapping product bundle. The bundle includes the GPS-Photo Link photo-mapping software, the Ricoh 500SE camera with attached GPS module, a 1-gigabyte memory card, and a camera bag.

In addition to an all-weather body, 8-megapixel resolution, and add-on lenses, the Ricoh 500SE comes with a detachable GPS module that automatically embeds GPS coordinates into the captured photographic images. The position of the GPS module on the top of the camera provides superior GPS signal reception compared with slide-in GPS cards. The new camera also offers a 'GPS lock' function that records the location of the object being photographed, instead of where the photographer is standing."

Digital World Wolverine Unleashes a 160GB Media Player

Digital World Wolverine Unleashes a 160GB Media Player: "If you absolutely must have all of your media with you at all times, Wolverine's latest entry in its ESP 5000 series of media players might be what you need. The $549 ESP Model 5160's 160 GB of storage space is enough for an estimate 50,000 songs, 320 hours of video. It also sports a reasonably sized 3.6'' LCD screen.

Much like the Wolverine MVP I wrote about last March, the ESP 5160 is crazy with data I/O and supported formats. Aside from the expected USB 2.0 connection, it can also get its media via its 7-in-1 card reader, and supports NTSC/PAL video out. Supported media formats are JPEG, BMP, TIFF and RAW for graphics; MPEG-1, MPEG-4, Windows Media Video 9 and XviD for video; and MP3, WMA, Ogg, WAV, AAC (MP4) and CD-Audio for audio. Best of all, that's native -- just copy the files over and you're done, no transcoding necessary"

New News Blog

This Photo News Blog is generated via and they have recently updated all accounts. Unfortuately the original blog will no longer update and Blogger "support" have so far ignored all my requests to look into the problem.

Untill the original account is repaired I'll be posting to this new News Blog (which to you will look just like the old one) and redirecting traffic here.
