Cheap Photo: LG 27-Inch 4K IPS Monitor 25% Off


As sensors get higher and higher resolution, it is more important than ever that the modern photographer have enough pixels on their monitor to accurately display and work on their images. While 1080p monitors are still most popular, photographers should really be looking into QHD (2k) or UHD (4k) monitors for the best editing experience from a resolution perspective.

SanDisk Introduces 256 GB Extreme Pro CF Card Aimed at 4K Video Recording

SanDisk Extreme Pro CF 256 GB

SanDisk’s latest 256 GB CompactFlash card is one of the highest-capacity memory cards around–and one of the most expensive. At a suggested retail price of US-$ 1,809.99 (though listed for $989.95 at B&H), the card isn’t so much aimed at the advanced hobbyist photographer with his Nikon D4, but rather at the professional videographer recording 4K high-definition video. With a minimum writing speed of 65 MB/s, the card delivers both the speed and the capacity needed for professional-grade video productions. In addition, it is also coated with silicone on the inside for extra shock protection, and remains in full working order in temperatures as low as -13° F (-25° C) and as high as +185° F (85° C).

Coincidentally, SanDisk also introduced their first CFast 2.0 memory card offering 120 GB of storage and up to 350 MB/s write speeds. Currently, this new standard isn’t widely supported, with one model that makes use of it being the ARRI AMIRA camera.

sandisk flasg

SanDisk has released a new line of wireless flash devices that are seemingly the first of their type. Their brand new connect line includes the SanDisk Connect Wireless Flash Drive  which will let you wirelessly connect to a smartphone tablet or computer, without an internet connection. The Wireless flash drive will be available in 16GB ($49.99) or 32GB ($59.99) capacities.

But that’s not all. They’ve also got a brand new drive to come with it. Coined, the SanDisk Wireless Media Drive will be able to stream movies, photos and music on tablets and smartphones and computers and will also include a SDHC/SDXC card slot for sharing images. The Wireless Media Drive will come in 32GB ($79.99)and 64GB ($99.99) capacities.

It will be interesting to see how photographers will put this to use–but we figure that it will be easier to show off portfolio to clients this way.

Are You Paying Too Much For Your CompactFlash Cards?


Last month I reported on an enticing price drop by Lexar on all their memory cards that was to end at the beginning of October. Imagine my surprise when I checked on prices today and found not only was the deal still on, some cards were even cheaper!

I don’t normally shoot with Lexar but it got me thinking: At these prices, would it be worth it to upgrade from my older Transcend X133 cards? And if so, should I stick with the cheaper brand or pony up the extra funds for Lexar or SanDisk?

The conclusion I came to is that, for my shooting, a mix is likely in my future. Let me lay out some numbers for you before you go hog wild on the cheap prices still available this month.
