brings your digital photos directly to friends and family in an easy-to-use creative
way.



Using state-of-the-art 3D graphics, the software allows users to see photo collections

of a virtual art gallery. Birthdays, family celebrations and any special event
can now be shared with family and friends in a completely new and unique way.



The user-friendly software can be set up to point to as many photo collections
as you like. Switching from one photo collection to another is simple and Touchpoint
Gallery is compatible with Internet picture sources Flickr, Flickr Search, and
RSS Feeds. You can also choose to view photos stored locally on your hard drive.



Friends and family can watch the photos and collections chosen by you while they
work or play, enjoy them as their default Windows screen saver, and use them to
automatically change their wallpaper. The software is truly dynamic, because when
you change the photos in your online collection, your friends and family using
Touchpoint Gallery are automatically updated too.



Touchpoint Gallery is freely distributed from www.touchpointstudios.com . For
more options, including a wider selection of 3D Templates and access to more photos
in your collections, users can choose to 'Go Unlimited' for $24.95.

Olympus has announced its new super-telephoto Zuiko Digital ED 70-300mm (f4.0-f5.6)
lens. The lens' allows users to get up-close (38 inches / 0.96 meters)
to subjects when taking macro shots. It is compatible with all E-System and
Four-Thirds system cameras. Zuiko Digital Specific Lenses each house their own
CPU and offer the user the ability to upgrade the firmware as new technology

communication between the lens and the camera body, enabling better compensation
for common distortions such as "shading" (darkening of the edges
of an image that may sometimes occur in photographs) or "barrel distortion"
(the bowing of vertical lines).

From the beaches of the eastern seaboard to the Great Plains, and from the wetlands
of the south, to the towering sequoias of the west, America and its pristine parks
have always been hailed as top destination sites for photography enthusiasts and
their families. Canon U.S.A., Inc. and the American Park Network continue to help
define the relationship between photography and the great outdoors with the introduction
of a free photography workshop program on select dates throughout the summer in
Yosemite, Grand Canyon and Yellowstone National Parks. These programs will be
artfully hosted and instructed by a select few of the world renowned Canon Explorer
of Light photographers including Adam Jones and Lewis Kemper, along with other
Canon-selected photographers such as Rob and Ann Simpson. What's more, the
Canon Photography in the Parks Photo Contest returns this year to offer photographers
the chance to display their work and win prizes in the categories of landscape
and wildlife photography in the parks.



From June 1st to September 29th, photographic enthusiasts are encouraged to submit
their favorite photographs from an American park to the Canon Digital Learning
Center. Winning photographs in the categories of landscape and wildlife will win
a trip to the participating parks of their choice, along with a full suite of
Canon photographic equipment. By logging onto the Canon Digital Learning Center
at www.usa.canon.com/dlc,
potential winners will not only have the opportunity to submit their photos, but
can also peruse the Web site to explore the various educational resources that
Canon has to offer for novices and advanced photographers alike.



With the help of the Canon Explorer of Light program, park visitors will have
the opportunity to participate in free daily guided visual photographic journeys.
Additionally, Canon will loan participants top-tier digital camera equipment to
capture those awe-inspiring sights at no additional cost. Aspiring photographers
will learn the tips and tricks to taking great outdoor photos and experience hands-on
training using some of the same equipment that professional photographers use.
Evening programs are also offered, providing visitors the rare opportunity to
spend time with the Explorers of Light, view stunning imagery, ask questions,
and receive prints and a CD of their own photos.
