From Nikon:
 
Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce that its flagship digital SLR camera, the Nikon D4S, supports the next-generation, high-speed Ver. 2.0 specification for XQD memory cards.
 
XQD Ver. 2.0 is a next-generation specification for XQD memory cards announced by the CompactFlash Association (CFA) on February 13, 2014. This new specification enables faster read and write rates than does the current XQD specification. The new specification also uses a dual interface, PCIe Gen2 and USB 3.0 format, making it easier to use with computer devices including card readers, and allowing for high-speed transfer of images to a computer.
 
Sony G series XQD memory cards announced on September 12, 2014 will support the XQD Ver. 2.0 specification.
 
Support for the XQD Ver. 2.0 specification by the Nikon D4S enables faster write times, as well as the ability to capture more shots with continuous shooting, when XQD Ver. 2.0 memory cards are used.
 
Though the Nikon D4 does not support this new specification, mutual compatibility between current XQD memory cards and XQD Ver. 2.0 memory cards means that the same level of performance available with current XQD cards is possible when XQD Ver. 2.0 memory cards are used with the D4.

Tamron 16-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD Macro Lens
From Tamron:
 
Tamron Co., Ltd. (President & CEO: Morio Ono; Head office: Saitama-shi), a leading manufacturer of precision optics, announced that it had produced a total of 5 million high-power zoom lenses* for interchangeable-lens cameras as of September 30, 2014.
 
Over 22 years since Tamron released the AF28-200mm F/3.8-5.6 Aspherical (Model 71D) in 1992, the company has continued to develop innovative high-power zoom lenses as a "pioneer of high-power zoom lenses" such as further expanding the focal range, realizing astounding lightweight and compact structure, supporting digital SLR cameras, incorporating VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanisms, and implementing the PZD (Piezo Drive) ultrasonic motor.
 
Tamron has announced that it has produced a total of 5 million Tamron high-power zoom lenses as a result of the development of high-power zoom lenses spanning the past 22 years.
 
At present, Tamron has a wide lineup of high-power zoom lenses supporting various camera formats. In particular, during 2014, the company has released the 16-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD MACRO (Model B016) for APS-C sized digital SLR cameras with a world-first 18.8x zoom, the 28-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD (Model A010) supporting full-frame digital SLR cameras, and the 14-150mm F/3.5-5.8 Di III (Model C001) for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras.
 
*Tamron defines high-power zoom lenses as lenses with a 7x zoom or higher.

From science.nasa.gov:
 
Sunsets are always pretty. One sunset this month could be out of this world. On Thursday, Oct. 23rd, the setting sun across eastern parts of the USA will be red, beautiful and … crescent-shaped.
 
"It's a partial solar eclipse," explains longtime NASA eclipse expert Fred Espenak. In other words, the New Moon is going to 'take a bite' out of the sun.
 
A total eclipse is when the Moon passes directly in front of the sun, completely hiding the solar disk and allowing the sun's ghostly corona to spring into view. A partial eclipse is when the Moon passes in front of the sun, off-center, with a fraction of the bright disk remaining uncovered.
 
The partial eclipse of Oct. 23rd will be visible from all of the United States except Hawaii and New England. Coverage ranges from 12% in Florida to nearly 70% in Alaska. Weather permitting, almost everyone in North America will be able to see the crescent.
 
The eclipse will be especially beautiful in eastern parts of the USA, where the Moon and sun line up at the end of the day, transforming the usual sunset into something weird and wonderful.
 
Read the entire article on science.nasa.gov or check out the video above! If you live in the USA, check out this location table to find out when you can expect to see the partial eclipse.
