Flash SDHC – mixed emotions

Flash…aha…

I’ve been working on an SD memory group test today. Mainly because Pipex haven’t fixed by Broadband and it’s been going up and down like a the water level in Yorkshire!
It’s turned out to be an interesting exercise, because man of the card makers chose to send the latest SDHC flavours. The first problem I had was that my existing flash card reader wouldn’t accept them, which was thankfully solved by Lexar, who sent me a reader. The second, and more annoying is the lack of planning in SD technology.
Most of the cards I have are 4GB, with a few 2GB and the odd 1GB thrown in. I’ll end up keeping some of these, maybe the half I bought. But how useful will they be to me? Not sure. I’ve discovered that my beloved Nikon D50 won’t read the SDHC ones! Come on Nikon, you must be able to fix this with a firmware patch! I’ve been told that they will read some cards if they’re formated to FAT16, as SDHC are formated in FAT32 as standard. That’s great advice, until you realised that the biggest partition you can have on FAT16 is 2GB, so that’s not a huge help, is it? Even more annoyingly both the D40, D40x and D80 all accept them, so can’t see a reason why the D50 shouldn’t be able to work with them.

Nikon AF-S VR 70-300 – is brill!

Nikon AF-S VR 70-300My lens arrived! Not in time to go to London, but it arrived.
I went out in the middle of the day and shot some wildlife (not literally…) to get some practice. None of the results are amazing, but I’m still getting used to the VR, among other things. But I can see the potential, and it’s enormous.
What I really need to do is get myself to an airshow…I’ve decided. When I’ve taken something genuinely wow, I’ll post it up.

Carling Cup day out!

Wasps vs. Saints This was a while back, but fun all the same. A good friend of mine, Dean Chapman, invited me to watch Wasps give the Saints a hiding in the Carling Cup semi-final. Here are some photos I took at the Ricoh Stadium!
