He didn’t set out to capture an icon in an image that’s instantly classic, but that’s pretty much what happened. “It was a walkabout on a foggy day,” Chris Ford says. “I sometimes like to shoot on foggy days in Manhattan, and I live on the Lower East Side, so getting down to the Brooklyn Bridge was relatively easy.”

Old-school good looks, classic details, and innovative, effective protection for cameras and photo accessories – the Clik Classic line’s sophisticated retro style and leading-edge features make them fantastic packs for photographers who wander the trails and ramble the urban landscape.

Accessory pockets organize the little things, keeping them right at hand. Clever access portals let you access your camera without breaking stride so you never miss the shot.

If you've ever been walking down the street and a picture caught your
eye, but had no camera to capture the moment, then the small, shirt-pocket size
digicams might just be item you're seeking. A number of companies, including
Pentax, Casio and Minolta have already introduced such models, each with their
own unique feature sets. Now, Contax, a name renowned for exquisite cameras
and excellent lenses, has jumped into the fray with their own version, the U4R,
a 4-megapixel camera sporting a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar T* lens. Those familiar
with the amazing image clarity of this line of lenses will immediately recognize
the name; those unfamiliar with it can be assured that it is a legendary name
in optics. The camera has just under a 3x optical zoom lens, delivering the
equivalent of 38-115mm in 35mm format. There's also a digital zoom if
you need it, delivering over 400mm, but as with many digital zooms it's
really a crop into the frame, and will not deliver the quality of the prime
optics.

DxO Labs has unveiled www.dxomark.com, a new website delivering key objective metrics of sensor performance for a variety of cameras measured directly on the RAW image. Available as a free online resource, dxomark.com makes it possible for the first time to assess the intrinsic quality of a camera before the impact of any RAW conversion.

“There are many valuable resources reviewing the image quality of digital cameras, but none of them consider the actual RAW signal straight from the camera sensor,” explains Nicolas Touchard, Vice President of Marketing, DxO Labs Image Quality Evaluation business. “Demanding photographers who shoot in RAW should only care about the genuine quality of the RAW image, yet until now they have had to rely on measures based on converted RAW images, obviously biased by the processing applied to them, whether embedded or performed offline with a software RAW converter. Furthermore, as RAW converters evolve and improve, the latent potential of RAW images can only be gauged by analyzing the RAW images themselves, projecting the potential quality achievable with the ultimate RAW converter. This is why we believe that our approach will dramatically change the way photographers evaluate digital cameras.”

dxomark.com provides in-depth measurements of all the relevant characteristics of a sensor: actual ISO sensitivity (which generally differs from the value reported by the camera), signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), dynamic range, tonal range, color depth and sensitivity, metamerism, etc. dxomark.com already covers 50 popular cameras, including Digital Single-Lens Reflex (DSLRs) and high-end bridge cameras offering RAW image format. The site will be updated on a regular basis with new cameras.
dxomark.com RAW image quality database relies on DxO Analyzer, the world’s leading turn-key laboratory solution for image quality evaluation. Thanks to its accuracy, completeness, and reliability, DxO Analyzer has become the reference tool for numerous leading imaging industry players, photography magazines and websites.

How do digital
photographers handle thousands of pictures, maintain quality and efficiency in
their work, and stay competitive? Several leading digital photography companies
- including Extensis, GretagMacbeth, Lexar, Mirra, Nik Multimedia, Wacom, Microsoft,
Adobe, and Blue Pixel - have partnered together to address these questions. While
most professional seminars focus on the camera, editing, or printing, the Just
Show Me How seminar gives photographers the tools and knowledge they need to maximize
the effectiveness and efficiency of the complete digital process - after they've
taken the picture. The Just Show Me How Tour for professional photographers begins
in February 2005 and will visit 10 cities through April 2005.



The seminar will be taught by Rob Galbraith, professional photographer and digital
photography educator. Rob will guide attendees through the process of creating
an end-to-end solution that really works, using the best features of the hardware
and software available today. The goal of these seminars is to help serious and
professional photographers refine the process after the picture is taken, so that
they can direct their creative energies into what they really love - shooting
pictures.



Seminar Registration Details


Interested seminar attendees should visit www.justshowmehowpro.com
to register for an upcoming event. The cost to attend is $149 in advance or $169
for day of, walk-in registration. Check this web site for the seminar schedule,
which starts Feb 9.
