Samsung is set to introduce the GX-20 -- its highly-anticipated, next generation
DSLR. A 14.6 mega-pixel DSLR, the GX 20 extends the range of Samsung's
acclaimed GX-Series. The GX-20 improves on many of the advanced qualities of
its sibling DSLR, the 10.2 mega-pixel GX-10; however a host of new features
and firsts truly set this camera apart from any other GX Series model previously
introduced by Samsung. The GX-20 is highlighted by its proprietary, high performance
CMOS sensor. The Samsung CMOS sensor is equipped with 14 mega-pixel resolution,
can capture 14-bit RAW images, and maintains outstanding noise performance,
even at a high ISO setting of 6400. The GX 20 also incorporates improved sensor-based
shake-reduction as well as a double dust-removal system, which is designed to
prevent miniscule specs of dust from ruining a perfect image.

Delkin Devices, Inc. has expanded CompactFlash card storage capacity and speed
for digital cameras by announcing its 16GB UDMA enabled CompactFlash PRO card.
This latest addition to Delkin's Compact Flash PRO line boosts fast read/write
speeds-up to 305x (45MB/sec sustained transfer speed capability). Now photographers
