Adventures of Tintin II (2015 film)

13 09 2014

The Adventures of Tintin II is a 2015 upcoming film to be made based on the work of Hergé.

This was originally planned to be based on The Seven Crystal Balls and Prisoners of the Sun, however screenwriter Anthony Horowitz has since called this into question, suggesting these films would be the second  sequel and another story would become the first sequel.12

Peter Jackson also confirmed he will direct it once he has finished The Hobbit.1 On July 27th, 2009, Jackson stated that his favourite Tintin stories were The Seven Crystal Balls, Prisoners of the Sun, The Black Island and The Calculus Affair, but clarified that he had not decided which stories would form the basis of the second film yet. Jackson stated that it "would be great" to use Destination Moon and Explorers on the Moon as the basis for the third or fourth film in the series.

SD Card

Memory specialist SanDisk has created an SD card with 512 gigabytes (512GB) of storage space – the highest capacity ever released.

The card, which is the size of a postage stamp, will go on sale for $800 (£490).

The launch comes a decade after the firm released a 512-megabyte (MB) SD card with one-thousandth of the space.

Experts believe SD cards could eventually hold up to 2 terabytes (TB) of data, about 2,000GB.

The new card is aimed at film-makers shooting in the high-quality 4K format.

The 4K format – which is four times the resolution of HD – requires large file storage. Depending on compression, a single minute of 4K shooting will typically take around 5GB of storage space.

"4K Ultra HD is an example of a technology that is pushing us to develop new storage solutions capable of handling massive file sizes," said Dinesh Bahal, vice-president of product marketing at SanDisk.

The SD card format is one of the most widely used standards of flash storage, popular with digital cameras, camcorders and other mobile devices.

While camera types, resolutions and settings vary – a 512GB card could potentially hold around 30 hours of HD video.
