The new Casio Exilim EX-HG20G (list price, about $350) is a pocket size camera that is a traveling companion for those who like to see where they’ve been. Some examples: during my test with the camera we turned down a dirt road and “got lost” in the back areas of Arroyo Hondo, NM. We saw various side roads going this way and that, roads that weren’t on any map we had in the car. We shot a few pictures with the H20G and later plugged the images into Aperture 3.1 in our MacBook Pro, used the Places feature and voila, we saw exactly where we had been and where those back roads led.

Kingston Technology Company, Inc. has posted answers to a new series of questions
submitted by professional and aspiring digital photographers to its Ask the
Icon interactive feature on the `Icons of Photography' microsite
on kingston.com.



"Kingston's `Icons of Photography' has generated interest
from photographers of all levels who want to learn from some of the world's
most-respected photographers," said Jaja Lin, Flash memory marketing manager,
Kingston®. "We're delighted to be a conduit between our customers
and the Icons, providing a platform where everyone can share and explore ideas,"
added Lin.



Questions submitted by digital photographers from England, Malaysia, Ireland
and the U.S. were addressed by Kingston's four Icon photographers participating
in the program -- Harry Benson, Colin Finlay, Gerd Ludwig and Peter Read
Miller. Site visitors are encouraged to ask questions related to equipment;
tips and techniques for capturing better images; advice about getting started
as a photographer; or marketing one's work.



"I continue to be impressed with the level of interest photographers have
shown in the program and the types of questions they ask," said Finlay,
whose recent book project, Darfur: Twenty Years of War and Genocide in Sudan
recently won a Lucie Award in New York. "I think we learn as much from
them as they are hopefully learning from us and there is a great level of satisfaction
that comes from openly sharing our collective knowledge with each other."



Kingston's `Icons of Photography' program consists of three
elements -- 20 Questions, Ask the Icon and Critique My Image. Through the
program, professional photographers and enthusiasts can improve their techniques
by submitting their own photography for constructive critique. Additional information
is available at www.kingston.com/iop.

Designed to be the replacement for the late Agfa Classic 111 paper, ADOX Premium MCC 110 uses the same emulsion as the original Agfa, but on a neutral white paper base instead of the old warm base. Other than the whiter base, everything else about MCC 110 is exactly the same as Agfa Classic.

Phase One A/S and Mamiya Digital Imaging Co., Ltd. today unveiled an open medium

professional photographer engaged in day-long hand-held shooting sessions.



"Phase One and Mamiya have taken the first step in delivering a unique
approach to designing camera systems," said Henrik Hakonsson, CEO of Phase
One. "We believe that equipment interoperability and personal choice are
integral values in realizing the highest quality imaging results. Furthermore
we have invested heavily in optimizing all elements of the camera systems reliability
to maximize the photographers' time for shooting extraordinary images."




"Mamiya and Phase One are consolidating our expertise and fulfilling our
ambitions to provide the products desired by our customers," said Tsuyoshi
