Amazon's Gold Box deal today is the Transcend 16 GB SDHC Class 10 Flash Memory Card TS16GSDHC10E for only $15.99.

Class 10 cards can really make a difference in some cameras. Ricoh Forum helpfully has tables of RAW writing speeds with various SD cards. Here's the info for the GRD2.

Crazy Interception

MGCCC'S Alonzo Lawrence (15) intercepts a pass intended for Hinds receiver Qauntavius Leslie in the Bulldogs' 35-26 win over Hinds Oct. 29.

I was on the sideline Saturday, shooting our semi-final game against Northeast, when the Dean of Athletics told me one of my shots from the previous week had run in the Clarion-Ledger. We ran it on our site as well.

It was just a crazy interception that happened right in front of me. I've been told it looks like everything from interpretive dance to a Power Ranger move. I actually shot several frames in this sequence, and none of the other ones looked weird like this. There were a couple where the guys had more air, but the Sports Information Director liked this one.

We won our semi-final game also, in overtime. So we'll be playing for the state championship in Scooba Saturday.

Ricoh GRD4 Review

There's a nice little review of the Ricoh GR Digital IV over at jt . in . seoul. There aren't too many reviews out for this camera yet, and this one is a concise user overview, with plenty of pictures. There's also a brief comparison with the GRD3 and even the GR21!

Fuji Full Frame Mirrorless?

I was reading Ryan Brenizer's review of the Sony NEX-5n today, and near the end of the review he wrote this;

Fuji is currently developing a professional mirrorless system that should have an even bigger sensor than the NEX cameras.
Bigger than APS-C? And maybe with a sweet hybrid OVF like the X100? Sounds like a digital Contax G to me. I think I'll put of any big purchases until I see what that's all about.

Think Tank Retrospective Series


Here's another good looking messenger style bag - the Think Tank Retrospecitve 10. Thinktank also make a Retrospective 5, 10, and 30 which are, as you might imagine, smaller or larger, corresponding with their model number designation. I still think the Lowepro Pro Messenger looks a little nicer, but I haven't seen either one in person.
