Using a range of wide angle and tele lenses, with many fascinating points of view, the photos gave us renewed faith...

Extensis Inc. has announced an update
to its Pro Photo Raw Image Filter for Portfolio 7. The updated filter will be
a free upgrade for registered owners of Extensis' digital asset management (DAM)
solution for organizing digital photos, illustrations, page layouts and presentations.



With the Pro Photo Raw Image Filter, Portfolio generates high-quality thumbnails
and previews from the unprocessed raw image files created by professional digital
cameras from Nikon, Olympus, Kodak, Canon, Fuji, Konica-Minolta, Pentax and Imacon.
With the Pro Photo Raw Image Filter, Portfolio 7 can extract EXIF metadata and
IPTC from the Raw files, create thumbnails for displaying the images in catalogs,
and generate high-resolution JPEG previews on the fly for detailed viewing, printing,
slideshows and QuickTime movies.



The Pro Photo Raw Image filter for Portfolio is powered by technology from Bibble
Labs.

Konica Minolta Photo Imaging U.S.A., Inc. has unveiled the new Konica Minolta
Maxxum 7D digital Single Lens Reflex (SLR) camera. This 6.1-million-pixel resolution,
interchangeable lens digital camera is the world's first digital SLR featuring
a body-integral CCD-shift, Anti-Shake (camera-shake compensation) technology
that combines enhanced picture quality, performance and improved handling characteristics.
This new digital SLR also features a large, easy-to-view, high-definition 2.5-inch
color LCD monitor and is compatible with virtually any Maxxum AF lens.



Specifically designed to match the performance requirements of the camera's
large 6-megapixel CCD, the Maxxum 7D's exclusive CCD shift-type Anti-Shake
technology makes this new camera the first digital SLR to feature a body-integral
Anti-Shake function. This system instantly and precisely shifts the CCD to compensate
for camera motion. And it's so effective photographers can shoot at shutter
speeds up to three steps slower than what they could use without it. So even
in low light, photographers can keep their images clean and sharp, free of the
image-degrading noise that creeps in when they boost ISO sensitivity. And because
the mechanism is integrated directly into the Maxxum 7D's cameras body,
it works with virtually any Maxxum AF lens -- a major advantage for photographers
when compared to bulky and expensive lens-based optical stabilization systems
and software-based "digital correction systems" that can degrade
image quality.
