  • Yet another roundup shows that a good SSD is still hard to find (for cheap)

    I keep looking at SSDs, and then I keep changing my mind. The right combination of price, performance, and storage capacity just hasn’t hit yet.

This was different from previous cameras that often used a separate viewfinder that didn’t see exactly what the lens was viewing. The proliferation of these new SLR cameras offered a reasonable method of avoiding… Read More
