Since scratching the first drawings of animals onto cave walls, humans have been compelled to create images of their world for others to see and understand. During the past 150 years, the shape, size, and technology of the tools we have used to produce photographs has changed drastically. To capture sweeping landscape vistas, we no longer need to drive a mule-drawn darkroom wagon into the wilderness. Now a camera that fits in a pocket can do the job. During the coming year, the means that we will use to capture photographs may change but not the motivation to share a view of our world with other people.

During the coming year, the means we’ll use to capture photographs may change but not the motivation to share our view of the world with others. To accomplish this goal we need tools to change the way we see that world and interact with it. Imagine handing an iPhone to Alexander Graham Bell. What would he think of it? The future of imaging includes many paradigm-shifting technologies such as robotics and artificial intelligence but in the short run, we’ll deal with trends.

Winter Storm Jonas is bearing down on our nation’s capitol and threatening to bury DC, Philly and maybe even New York City in snow this weekend. In fact, if you live anywhere east of Oklahoma, you’re probably charging batteries, restocking the liquor cabinet and laying in a good supply of unhealthy snacks that you can justify eating only during a weather emergency. But how do you plan to protect your camera when you venture out to capture the storm? Here are a few options.

Olympus, a global leader in endoscopy solutions and a precision technology leader
in award-winning consumer products, will donate 10 percent of the proceeds from
its consumer products sold through the eBay Giving Works auction to C3: Colorectal
Cancer Coalition and the Entertainment Industry Foundation's National Colorectal
Cancer Research Alliance (EIF's NCCRA), to benefit advocacy and research.
By demonstrating its commitment to the fight against colorectal cancer, Olympus
hopes to raise funds to benefit these leading nonprofit organizations over the
next 12 months. To visit this site, log on to http://stores.ebay.com/Olympus-Auctions.




Through this unique endeavor, Olympus is utilizing its expertise in both endoscopy

the fight against colorectal cancer. The proceeds from sales of Olympus products
via the eBay Giving Works auction will be divided between C3: Colorectal Cancer
Coalition and the EIF's NCCRA, with the goal to directly support the eradication
of this disease.



As the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States for both men
and women, colorectal cancer is not only one of the most preventable cancers,
but also one of the most curable when detected at an early stage. According to
the American Cancer Society, nearly 150,000 Americans are diagnosed with colorectal
cancer annually and an estimated 50,000 die.



The donated profits received by C3 will be used to further its legislative and
advocacy mission, whereas the profits received by EIF's NCCRA will be used
for to advance promising research.



"C3: Colorectal Cancer Coalition is grateful to Olympus
for supporting our efforts to fight colorectal cancer through research, empowerment
and access," said Carlea Bauman, president of C3. "We hope to one
day make colorectal cancer no more deadly than the common cold -- and we
will only accomplish that through an increased commitment to ending this terrible
disease. We applaud Olympus' efforts to raise awareness, and raise the bar."



"On behalf of the Entertainment Industry Foundation's National Colorectal
Cancer Research Alliance and co-founder Katie Couric, we are so grateful for Olympus'
steadfast commitment to our colon cancer initiative," said Lisa Paulsen,
President and CEO of the Entertainment Industry Foundation. "Olympus'
ongoing support helps us with our efforts to generate greater awareness of this
cancer, as well as accelerate important science that will hopefully lead us to
better tests, treatments and, ultimately, a cure."



In addition to the proceeds raised, all Olympus cameras bought on eBay will be
shipped with information about colorectal cancer screening. "At Olympus,
we believe it is our responsibility to help educate, inform and create awareness
about colorectal cancer," said F. Mark Gumz, president and COO of Olympus
America. "Our hope is that through our many Olympus initiatives, we will
increase awareness and facilitate discussions about the disease."



Building on Olympus' five-year history of selling products via eBay, the
company believes it can create a positive philanthropic impact through the online
program. Of note are the more than 3,000 unique visitors per day to the Olympus
store on eBay. For more information regarding Olympus' colorectal cancer
