Now with SD/SDHC support! Other features: Art filters, AF tracking, face recognition, dual image stabilization, shadow adjustment, 720p HD video recording.
The new Eye-Fi Pro X2 card supports 802.11n Wi-Fi. The press release at Dpreview says: “he Eye-Fi Pro X2 is an 8GB SDHC card offering class 6 transfer speeds (guaranteed 6MB/s) and faster (802.11n compliant) wireless data rates. It also features an optional ‘Endless Memory’ mode in which the card will automatically delete content it has already transferred, when it fills to a user defined level.”
And Dpreview also presented the new Lexar cards: “Lexar has announced upgrades to its Professional line of memory cards. The company’s Professional 300x CompactFlash card is now available in a larger 32GB capacity, while the Professional 233x CF cards are available in 32GB and 16GB capacities. In addition, the Professional 133x SDHC cards have been upgraded to Class 10 speed rating.”
Apparently the Samsung NX-10 with 18-55mm will cost 700 Euro or $800. That’s a lot cheaper than the Panasonic GH1 and I don’t know if we should expect a GH1 price drop soon (we already had a -$250 price drop in amazon US)
In the meanwhile dpreview posted some new NX-10 images. Try to compare it with the images taken with the Olympus E-P1. Let me know what your first impressions are!
Where does the NX-10 lack against the Panasonic include("buy/gh1.php"); ?>?
It has no 50/60p and no 1080 recording.
Sound is mono only.
AF doesn’t work in video mode. UPDATE: This is wrong, AF works!
No swivel LCD.
And no video optimazied lenses.
