This is the coolest feature since the mobile apps Contour offers to facilitate live preview, settings, etc. These features, along with the compact and ergonomic design, has kept the Contour at the top of our list for POV cameras. While the GoPro is the most popular in this segment, we still find the Contour easier to live with on a day-to-day basis.

Photon Phone Perfect for Some Users

..and not so great for others.

We’ve been playing with Motorola’s latest Android smartphone for about two weeks now. What we’ve found is a powerful package with lots of geeky features, but lacking in a couple of very important areas.

The Motorola MB855 Photon 4G is an Android-powered phone for the Sprint network (also known as the Electrify if purchased through U.S. Cellular).

New SD Memory from San Disk

News from the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show


Today at CES we saw the new SanDisk Extreme SDXC UHS-I Memory Card. The  card is designed to help imaging enthusiasts shoot like the pros, with the speed and capacity needed to capture not only high-quality videos but also high-resolution RAW+JPEG photos, which can reach upto 30 megabytes in size.

“Consumer video capture is driving user-generated content creation,” said Chris Chute, researchmanager, worldwide digital imaging solutions, IDC. “This is the first year that more than half of all video captured will be in HD,and that number is set to reach nearly 80 percent in 2014. This trend highlights the need for memory cards that are fast enough to handle a massive data flow while offering enough capacity to store the resulting files.”

Suggested retail is $199 for the 64 gig card or $399 for the 128 gig version.
