Moab, a division of Legion Paper, announces the launch of Slickrock Metallic Pearl 260, a new category of fine art inkjet paper featuring an innovative metallic, pearlescent coating.

Designed for photographers seeking to enhance their images with a metallic look, Slickrock Metallic Pearl 260 transforms an image into lifelike, almost 3D quality. Black & White images shine on this new paper producing deep dark blacks and ultra-bright highlights.

Reminiscent of the ultra-smooth and slick sandstone surface of the famous bike trail that loops through the desert plains of Moab, Slickrock Metallic Pearl 260 captures the original beauty of an image with a metallic pearl enhancement. The paper’s high gloss and unique sheen make this ideal for everyday prints with a twist.

Slickrock Metallic Pearl 260 is a micro-porous, pearlescent metallic paper featuring a glossy surface with instant dry time. The scratch-resistant coating produces vivid color reproductions on a medium-weight 12 mil metallic paper stock. The paper is designed to be printed with the Photo Black inksets.

At photokina 2012, two of the trends being explored are taking movies with digital still cameras and photography with mobile telephones or smartphones. A large amount of exhibition space, where trade visitors can get more information, is being dedicated to both of these technological trends, which are having such a significant impact on the imaging sector.

Market observations reveal that most of the digital still cameras sold are capable of taking HD quality movie sequences. This is especially true for single lens reflex (SLR) cameras and system cameras. Today 9% of professional photographers consider the movie function essential, over 50% consider it to be useful, and three quarters of professionals think it's at least relevant. In order to highlight the growing importance of filming with digital SLR (DSLR) and system cameras, photokina 2012 is dedicating a showcase area to this segment in hall 4.1. Under the name "shoot movie", this space offers suppliers an optimal setting for presenting their products to the trade public. Because filming with DSLR and /or system cameras is increasingly becoming a necessity for professionals users, special attention will be given to their needs. The presentation will be supplemented by a stage program that is tailored to the needs of the imaging professional. The program will consist of discussions, lectures, and workshops. Among other things, these activities will address the issue of what today's professionals can and must do in order to win new clients.

Humanity has always been fascinated with (and attracted to) the creatures of the night. Every culture has legions of deadly monsters that lurk in the dark corners waiting for an unfortunate victim to wander too close. Much of our popular fiction and films are based upon these fears, to the ghoulish delight of the fans.

In 1995 Joshua Hoffine graduated from Kansas State University with a B. A. in English Literature but he soon decided to embark upon a totally different (and far more strange) road. He began his career in photography by studying with commercial photographer Nick Vedros and working as a photo assistant at Hallmark Cards. In 2003 Hoffine started creating horror themed images and his work soon exploded across the Internet.

Pentax/Ricoh Imaging has been rather coy about its forthcoming, full frame DSLR, posting a series of slightly changing teasers on its website. The latest teaser adds a new photo of the DSLR along with some text that seems to be a clumsily translated press release about the camera and the lineage behind it.

These days photography is becoming sort of a contact sport, with more and more photographers being assaulted while doing their jobs. Typically, however, these incidents occur to photographers covering riots or political rallies, rather that at charity events as was the case here.
