"Geez, Tim, your photo gear alone is heavier than my entire backpack!" This was a fellow backpacker I met in Glacier National Park. She was exaggerating...I hope. But it is certainly true that adding a lot of photography equipment to a loaded camping backpack adds significant weight.
Fine art printmakers and their customers will soon have a guarantee on the longevity
of certain Epson fine art prints through Epson's new UltraGiclée(tm)
print certification program. This certification will enable printmakers to sell
their work and enable customers to buy these prints with confidence that the
prints will last.
UltraGiclée certified fine art prints, which can only be created on selected
Epson professional printers using select professional media and EPSON UltraChrome(tm)
ink, will be warranted to resist noticeable fading for 80 years from the original
date of purchase when the print is printed, framed, handled and displayed according
to warranty conditions. If a warranted print fades, Epson will provide the ink
and paper needed to make a replacement print. Current certified printers include
the EPSON Stylus Pro 4000, 7600 and 9600 printers, and certified media include
UltraSmooth(tm) Fine Art Paper, Textured Fine Art Paper and PremierArt(tm) Water
Resistant Canvas for Epson.
Wilhelm Imaging Research (www.wilhelm-research.com)
has independently tested the printers, inks and papers used in Epson's UltraGiclée
certification program for the fine art, fine art reproduction and fine art photography
industries. Final prints made according to the program's specifications will
be registered and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
In order to earn UltraGiclée certification, printmakers will attend a
training class on proper printing and finishing techniques. Classes will be
offered starting in late spring in various cities across the country. Details
will be available at www.epson.com/ultragiclee
beginning March 14.

Konica Minolta Photo Imaging U.S.A., Inc., announces the development of three
new "DT" lenses - interchangeable Digital technology (DT) lenses designed
for the Maxxum Series digital SLR cameras, including the Maxxum 7D. These new
zoom lenses will expand the lineup of Konica Minolta interchangeable lenses
for Maxxum Series cameras. The DT Lenses employ a new optical system that is
specifically designed for digital SLR cameras, including the Maxxum 7D, which
incorporate an APS-C size CCD image sensor. Plans are to launch these Digital

Developing interchangeable lenses for digital SLR cameras with an optical system

to take ultra-wide- angle pictures, users who would like to take pictures with
a compact standard zoom, and users who would like to easily take telephoto shots
without changing the lens.
Kay Levie has loved photography since she was old enough to hold a camera.
She says that was a long time ago. Her first camera was a Kodak Brownie Box
Camera. She stated it was very limiting to use and challenging to capture images
it wasn't made to capture - like cats jumping in the air or horses running.
It taught her a lot about timing, which is what sports photography is all about.
