The first-ever Sundance Photographic Workshop opened with great acclaim from
students who are experiencing one-to-one and group instruction from wildlife
photographer Moose Peterson and photojournalist Kevin Gilbert. Moose and Kevin
are world-renowned as highly accomplished and creative photographic instructors.



Photo-passionate students are excited by the opportunity and challenge of honing
their craft, as well as inspired by the immense, awesome natural beauty of the
mountainous Sundance region. They are also enjoying Sundance's famous 4-star
cuisine -- a signature feature of the Utah resort community among travel aficionados

One look at the specs of this new Tamron zoom and you'll understand why
it's immediately attractive to anyone carrying around a digital SLR in
their day bag. Weighing in at around 15 oz and measuring just under 3x3.2",
the lens is quite the marvel of size for what it delivers in focal length and
aperture options. Indeed, if someone told me that a constant aperture, 17mm
wide lens would be this size a few years back I'd have thought they had
lost their optical marbles. To be fair, however, that 17mm is not really a 17mm
in 35mm equivalent, thus practical terms, and I wonder why lenses like this
are still labeled that way. This lens is only for APS-C sensors, which means
it has the "35mm equivalent" of a 27mm wide angle view and 80mm
tele.


Tamron's new 17-50mm zoom, available in Canon, Nikon, Konica
Minolta (read Sony), and Pentax (read Samsung) mounts is highly
portable and compact.

Eastman Kodak Company is extending its partnership with Leica Camera AG to
provide image sensors for the newly announced LEICA M8. The new KODAK KAF-10500
image sensor was developed specifically for use with the M8, and marks Kodak's
second collaboration with Leica, building on the success of Kodak's interaction
with Leica on the LEICA DIGITAL-MODULE-R.



The first digital camera to use the Leica viewfinder system, the LEICA M8 extends
the Leica M series into the digital world. By working closely with Leica, Kodak
designed and optimized the new image sensor to meet the demanding needs of Leica
photographers.



With a resolution of over 10 million pixels, the KAF-10500 continues Kodak's
legacy of offering high performance imaging devices that leverage Kodak's
Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) technology for low noise, high sensitivity, and wide
dynamic range. Utilizing a 6.8µm pixel architecture, the sensor uses an
optimized microlens configuration to maximize center to corner uniformity for
improved image quality, particularly important for the broad incident light
angles associated with M series lenses. The sensor also includes anti-blooming
protection to prevent against image corruption during high light level conditions.
