Transcend’s newest SD cards can handle more harsh environments than you

The Transcend UHS-II U3 memory card lineup is built from the ground up to be as robust and weather-proof as possible. The cards are waterproof for 30 minutes at one meter (IS IPX 7 equivalent test), can operate at extreme temperatures (as low as –25C/–13F, and as high as 85C/185F), resist electrostatic charges compliant with the EMC IEC61000–4–2 certification, remain unaffected by X-rays, particularly those at airports (ISO7816–1 compliant) and offer shock resistance for those times when you might accidentally run over your memory card a few times with your car tire (don’t ask how…crap happens).

 

A 64GB capacity card will set you back roughly US$90, while a 32GB comes to approximately US$50. You can find out more information on the cards by heading over to Transcend’s website.

Adobe’s Free Color App Allows you to Sample The World’s Colors with Your Mobile Device

We here at Fstoppers can forgive our beloved Trevor Dayley for jumping ship and joined the crew over at SLRLounge as long as he keeps turning us on to useful tools and tips like the Adobe Color CC app. This thing is so cool and it’s free. Adobe never seems to stop enriching it’s eco systems with improved connectivity and functionality. The Color CC app allows you to sample real world colors (you’ll see what I mean by that in Trevor’s video) or create color palettes from photos straight from your mobile device. All your captures are saved as “themes” directly to your Creative Cloud account to be access later in Comp CC, Illustrator Draw, Photoshop Sketch, Illustrator, InDesign and most importantly Photoshop. Trevor’s full post, which details the usefulness of the app, can be found here on SLRLounge and you can check out Adobe’s in-depth tutorial here. Download it free for iPhone or Android.

 

Capture color combinations whenever inspiration strikes with Adobe Color CC and your iPhone, iPad or Android devices. Your color themes are automatically saved to Creative Cloud Libraries for access in desktop and mobile apps, or to share with your team. Color CC now works with the Apple Watch, so you can browse themes from other users around you and save them to your libraries. -Adobe

Earlier this month, Olympus issued a service advisory for OM-D E-M10 Mark II owners whose cameras were affected by a lens mount locking pin issue that caused plastic mount lenses to not secure properly to the camera body. As a result, Olympus also announced it was pausing the sales of all E-M10 II until the issue was fixed for all units in transit or sitting on shelves.
