Canon Vixia HF100 puts HD Video on SD cards

Canon’s Vixia HF100 – Impressive. Canon Vixia HF100 HD CamcorderA single word that truly means much when it comes to my opinion regarding the latest SDHC HD Camcorder from Canon. It’s truly impressive and there are so many features, it is hard to pick a place to start.

First of all, the camera is beautiful, well designed and laid out. The camera does not record to DV tape, hard drive or internal memory – instead, it records on full-size SDHC cards.

SanDisk 4GB microSDHC with USB Reader and SD Adapter

SanDisk 4GB microSDHC with USB Reader and SD AdapterThere are two common ways to go about addressing your media storage needs. If you have to transport large amounts of files with even larger file sizes, then the best option is to get an external portable hard disk drive. While it may be a bit bulky, most portable hard disk drives today can store all sorts of files with memory capacities ranging from 100 gigabytes up to a whopping 500 gigabytes. However, if what you need is something that will fit right into your shirt’s pocket, then you may have to go with flash memory. In comparison with portable hard drives, flash memory does have a smaller memory capacity. The portability it affords users though, still makes it a much sought-after choice amongst people who are always on the go. One of these products is the Sandisk 4GB microSDHC with USB Reader and SD Adapter.

Patriot 16GB SD CardStorage needs increasing? Don’t feel like you are the only one – everyone seems to consume more hard drive space, use more flash drives and SD cards, external hard drives and nearly every device we use has some form of memory card.

SD has quickly become the more widely accepted and used format of flash memory in addition to Compact Flash and USB Drives.

16 and 32GB SDHC plus 8GB MicroSDHC Announced

Toshiba SDHC and MicroSHDCToshiba has been busy figuring out how to cram even more memory into the widely popular SD and Micro SD formats – they have stretched the capacity to 16 and 32GB for the latest SDHC capacity and 8GB in the MicroSDHC format.

According to Toshiba’s Japanese press release, the 16GB SDHC will run you about $350 and will be available in October 2007. The 32GB SDHC monster will be available for double that price, or seven hundred bucks, but y’all are going to have to wait until January 2008 for the biggest card on the block.

For those of you with the need to store lots of photo and media on the go (and have a player which supports the MicroSDHC format), Toshiba didn’t forget you! Their announcement of the 8GB SHDC capacity will be a welcome message for mobile developers as well. While the 2GB capacity of MicroSD today is just fine for most people, wouldn’t you rather have your entire iTunes library on a convenient MicroSD card the size of half a postage stamp?
