New Lexar and Eye-Fi cards.

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.

As usual when something new is announced the “old” stuff gets very interesting price-drops:

UPDTAED-> Some more Samsung NX-10 details…

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 ?

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.

P.S.: The Panasonic 14-140mm f/4.0-5.8 OIS Micro Four Thirds Lens is in Stock at amazon.

A small and true story about New Years Eve! :)

Happy New Year to everyone!

I had a very nice night with friends in the montains. I would like to tell you a small story. At about 4 o’clock in the morning a friend of a friend of mine approached me and he started to talk about cameras. He doesn’t know that I am the 43rumors owner :)

Friend: “You know what, I want to buy a new camera, a !”
Me: “Oh yeah, it is a nice camera!”
Friend: “I read the wonderful review from a guy who went to the Himalaya for 17 days (Craig Mod)… I love the camera!”
Me: “Wow! I also read it! And how did you find his website?”
Friend: “I always read 43rumors. Do you know the website?”

Happy New Year!

Right now I am on the top of a montain in the middle of the alps. It is snowing. A perfect atmosphere to enter the 2010!
Wish you good luck!
