Sony (finally!) says hello to SD cards

Do you believe in miracles? Proprietary-format-happy Sony finally adopted SD/SDHC cards as the storage in its point-and-shoot cameras.

To be fair, Sony's Memory Stick format does predate the SD Card format, but SD/SDHC cards are practically an industry standard.

And if you still have a bunch of Memory Stick cards lying around, don't worry: The new Cyber-shot cameras have a card slot that supports both SD/SDHC and Memory Stick.

Budget-busting camcorder

Panasonic's twin-lens Full HD 3D camcorder is a professional-level 3D camcorder that records video from each of its lenses to SDHC cards.

If you have $21,000 (£12,000) handy, you should definitely pick one up in the autumn; for the price, Panasonic will custom-build the camcorder to your liking.
