Capture One RAW offers RAW files support for new DSLR cameras such as Nikon's
new flagship, the D2Xs, Nikon D80 and Canon EOS Rebel XTi. (The new Rebel is
not supported tethered in Capture One.) RAW files from Leica's brand new
digital rangefinder camera, the M8, Epson's R-D1s as well as Sony's
first DSLR camera, the Alpha DSLR-A100, are also supported in Capture One 3.7.5.




Capture One 3.7.5 PRO/DB version also includes a variety of enhancements that
benefit Phase One's digital back users. The capture rate performance when
shooting in RAW IIQ-L mode on Mac has improved. This performance enhancement

We
are sad to announce that Carl Koch, inventor of the modular Sinar camera system,
died in late December at the age of 89. This Swiss photographer and inventor
introduced the revolutionary Sinar camera in 1948. Koch's primary motivation
was to offer professional photographers the latest technical refinements. He
was steadfastly successful with the logical implementation of his life's
motto: "What can be done better, shall be done better".



Additional milestones were the automation of the camera with the introduction
of a universal shutter for all lenses, selective exposure metering at the film
plane and the simplification of camera settings.



The education of the new generation of professional photographers was also a
major concern to Koch. He authored a series of textbooks and guidelines for
professional photography, of which Photo Know How'--a self-teaching
course for professional photographers that was translated into many languages
including Chinese and Russian--became a worldwide standard text. To this
day, Koch's principles still guide the philosophy of Sinar, the company
that he founded. The world of professional photography mourns the passing of
one of its great pioneers.

Carl Zeiss introduced the Distagon T* 2/25 ZE and ZF.2 moderate wide-angle lenses. The large image angle allows photographers to capture exciting perspectives. In many situations, a flash is an unwelcome feature - at family gatherings, in a museum or in a church for example. To capture the mood in such places, photographers gladly do without aggressive lighting and instead work with particularly high-speed lenses that enable short exposure times even under difficult lighting conditions.

Beginning in June 2006, the Carl Zeiss Camera Lens Division assumed full responsibility
for the distribution of its products in the United States and Canada. The division
is implementing this measure in preparation for the launch of the new ZF lenses
for Nikon SLR & DSLR cameras and other future product lines. The company's
new sales department will also be responsible for the Zeiss Ikon camera system
previously distributed by a partner. The product line available for this rangefinder
camera includes ZM lenses, a unique line of premium ZEISS M bayonet lenses.

Zeiss has introduced a new series of lenses for the semi-professional market: the
ZF.2 with F bayonet for digital SLRs. Thanks to its electronic interface (CPU),
these new ZEISS lenses support all-important operations such as the automatic
mechanisms for time, aperture setting and program. The CPU also supports manual
exposure settings, including those for camera casings that are not
AI-compatible. Since the lens now transmits the EXIF data such as manufacturer,
date, metering system and exposure to the camera, photographers no longer need
to set the parameters manually.

The latest member of the ZM lens family is the C Biogon T* 2,8/35 ZM. The "C"
in the title indicates another outstanding feature: rather unusual for a lens
of this performance class, its moderate speed of 1:2.8 permits an exceptionally
compact construction. The symmetrical Biogon construction with 7 lens elements
in 5 groups allows for practically distortion-free images.

Comfortably carry one or two D-SLRs with lens right on your backpack, where you can reach them easily and quickly – that's the ingenious idea behind the BACKPACK STRAP by SUN-SNIPER.

SUN-SNIPER's newest innovation solves the problem common to many hikers, mountain climbers, photo journalists and nature photographers - people who carry a backpack and need to have their camera nearby and ready to go in an instant. Instead of having to carry a backpack and a separate camera strap, owners of the BACKPACK STRAP can simply use their backpacks to transport their ready-to-shoot cameras. The SUN-SNIPER BACKPACK STRAP is fastened directly to the backpack. The backpack strap cushion evenly distributes the weight of the camera and lens, ensuring that your back is treated gently. The integrated SHOCK-ABSORBER – another highly praised SUN-SNIPER specialty – absorbs additional jolts and vibrations, making carrying equipment up to 5 kg a pleasure.
