In line with the market transition from the darkroom to the digital arena, Ilford
set itself the benchmark of producing the equivalent of a classic air-dried, gloss,
black and white fiber based silver image print using current inkjet digital technology.
The product that meets this benchmark is now available in the Galerie Brand Inkjet
Line from Ilford and it is formally tagged as Galerie Gold Fibre Silk.

Galerie Gold Fibre Silk is a 310gsm inkjet media featuring a traditional barium
sulfate (baryta) base. The baryta base enhances the media surface producing the
creamy whites and velvety blacks that form part of the unique look and feel of
a traditional fiber based print; the standard amongst art photographers worldwide.
The media also produces real high definition images with an extended tonal range,
making it a must for exhibition quality images, ranging from vivid color to dramatic
black and whites.

The assembly is completed by a backing layer, which ensures that the final printed
image has minimal curl. Galerie Gold has been specifically designed with no unnecessary
additives in the media to guarantee the image lasts and lasts just like a traditional
photo print.

Just as traditional silver halide photographs demonstrate, extreme emotions can
be captured in an image through warm or cold tones. These same results can be
produced digitally, and Ilford has created specific recommendations on using filter
factors to create 'digital toning'. Ranging from standard black and white, warm
tone, cool tone and sepia to gold, selenium and blue, the only limit is the photographer's
imagination. These filter factors together with custom ICC profiles are available
for free on the website:


Ilford Galerie Gold Fibre Silk will be available from October 2007, in the following

8.5"x11", 13"x19", 17"x22" in 10 and 50 sheet packs

17", 24" and 44" wide (40' long) rolls

Delkin Devices announced three new innovative additions to their line of AA battery
products - designed specifically with the digital photographer in mind. New to
Delkin's "Delkin Power" product line are three products that use the
newest in battery technology. Included in the new lineup are Extended Power 2900mAh
Rechargeable AA battery cells, a new AA/AAA International Quick Charger, and Ready-to-Use
Rechargeable AA battery cells that combine the benefits of single-use alkaline
cells with rechargeable cells.

The Ready-to-Use Rechargeable AA batteries combine all of the benefits of a rechargeable
with the benefits of a single use alkaline cell. Delkin's AA Ready-to-Use batteries
use technology that is said to allow them to hold their charge better than any
standard rechargeableThe batteries are environmentally friendly and can be charged
and recharged over 800 times then recycled at the end of their lifespan.

For those that are interested in the highest mAh rating available, Delkin's new
Extended Power 2900mAh Rechargeable AA batteries cater to high drain devices that
use a lot of power at one time, such as digital cameras that boast large LCD displays
with a powerful flash. The new Extended Power 2900mAh Rechargeable AA's are said
to offer more power to drive those high drain LCD screens and flash units. With
any rechargeable battery there always comes time for the need to recharge, so
Delkin decided to offer a new AA battery charger that would fulfill all of the
requirements of today's busy photographer. The AA/AAA International Quick Charger
uses four charging circuits compared to the one or two that most chargers use
today. This allows each battery to be individually monitored by the charger and
by the user, which enables a more adequate and longer lasting charge and drastically
increases safety. It also uses multiple safety features to protect against overcharge,
excessive heat and possible short circuiting, and uses a methodical charge rate
based on the quantity of cells being charged to properly condition and retain
the lifespan of the battery while charging it in a reasonable amount of time.
What's more, the AA/AA International Quick Charger is travel friendly with automatic
110V/220V switching and international plug options, with the US version having
a foldable power plug for easy packing. Charge time depends on the mAh rating
of the cells being charged, as well as the amount of cells being charged at one
time, but one 2900mAh cell will be fully charged in about 80 minutes.

All Delkin Power products are protected by the company's two year warranty and
can be found in camera stores worldwide, or at the company's website at
The Extended Power AA batteries as well as the Ready to Use AA batteries can be
purchased in packages of four and are priced at $16.99 and $17.99 respectively.
The AA/AAA International Quick Charger comes packaged with four of the Extended
Power AA batteries and is priced at $44.99.
