Swift's Ultra Lite collection are said to be the first and only binoculars
to incorporate two different types of rubber to improve durability, shock-absorption
and comfort. These new binoculars combine harder rubber on their outer edges
for better protection against bangs and bumps. Softer rubber is used in the
area where you grip the binoculars, thereby reducing user fatigue. The softer
rubber also provides a superior grip in any weather condition, wet or dry. This
same technology is also used to create a non-slip focusing knob on these binoculars.
The dual density covering also aids the nature photographer by keeping these
binoculars quiet when rubbing against their clothes.

The F.J. Westcott Company has introduced their new Spiderlite for still and
video imagemakers. The Spiderlite is less than five inches deep and is constructed
of solid metal. The inner metal surface of the light offers a highly reflective
surface. Any light falling backwards is again reflected back into a Soft Box

attachment of a Soft Box onto the Spiderlite itself. This not only cuts down

to carry or lose as well as quicker set-up.

Olympus has announced what they dub their next generation Stylus series camera:
the Stylus 500. Featuring a 2.5-inch HyperCrystal LCD, 5.0-megapixels of image
resolution, and a compact, durable, all-weather body, the Stylus 500 offers
Olympus' exclusive image processor, TruePic TURBO(tm), which is said to significantly
enhance image quality and deliver faster overall processing speeds for rapid
startup, shutter release and playback. The fast startup of less than one second
and nearly instant shutter release time ensures high-speed response. The body
is constructed of durable, lightweight metal with rubber gaskets throughout
the interior to ensure that rain, sleet, snow or sand won't get in the way.
The Stylus 500 has a new flat-surface body design that takes the series in a
new direction and, at a compact size of 3.9" (W) x 2.2" (H) x 1.2"
(D), it fits snugly into a pocket. The circular lens barrier tucks away inside
the camera body with a snap when powered on, and protects the lens with an impenetrable
seal with closed, leaving the camera face smooth and flat. The camera's 23 shooting
modes now include two new underwater shooting modes and two Shoot & Select
modes, which enable users to shoot rapid sequences of frames then select the
best shot from the series and delete the rest.
