Konica Minolta Photo Imaging U.S.A., Inc. has unveiled the new Konica Minolta
Maxxum 7D digital Single Lens Reflex (SLR) camera. This 6.1-million-pixel resolution,
interchangeable lens digital camera is the world's first digital SLR featuring
a body-integral CCD-shift, Anti-Shake (camera-shake compensation) technology
that combines enhanced picture quality, performance and improved handling characteristics.
This new digital SLR also features a large, easy-to-view, high-definition 2.5-inch
color LCD monitor and is compatible with virtually any Maxxum AF lens.



Specifically designed to match the performance requirements of the camera's
large 6-megapixel CCD, the Maxxum 7D's exclusive CCD shift-type Anti-Shake
technology makes this new camera the first digital SLR to feature a body-integral
Anti-Shake function. This system instantly and precisely shifts the CCD to compensate
for camera motion. And it's so effective photographers can shoot at shutter
speeds up to three steps slower than what they could use without it. So even
in low light, photographers can keep their images clean and sharp, free of the
image-degrading noise that creeps in when they boost ISO sensitivity. And because
the mechanism is integrated directly into the Maxxum 7D's cameras body,
it works with virtually any Maxxum AF lens -- a major advantage for photographers
when compared to bulky and expensive lens-based optical stabilization systems
and software-based "digital correction systems" that can degrade
image quality.

The 8GB SanDisk Ultra II CompactFlash card satisfies the need of those using
high-megapixel digital SLRs, those producing large files with every shot. Ultra
II cards offer a minimum sustained write speed of 9MB/sec and a read speed of
10MB/sec. SanDisk also produces their Extreme III CompactFlash lineup, which
has about double the read/write speed, but because the Extreme III uses a different
type of NAND flash memory the maximum capacity of that lineup is 4GB. In tests
with a variety of digital SLRs the Ultra II performed flawlessly, and it sure
was handy having that amount of memory on trips where lots of images were made
during the day's shoot. For Raw images with an 8MP camera we could get
almost 600 images on a card. Retail price for the 8GB card is $999.99, about
what a 1GB CompactFlash card cost three years ago.

Corel Corporation has announced the release of Corel Paint Shop Pro X and Corel
Photo Album 6, two major new products from Corel's digital imaging portfolio
and the first versions of the software to be introduced since Corel's acquisition
of Jasc in October 2004.



With a revamped user interface featuring a new, integrated Learning Center and
Browser palette, Paint Shop Pro X is designed to accelerate learning and increase
productivity. Tools are organized by task within the Learning Center palette,
enabling users of all skill levels to produce professional-looking results with
no previous photo editing experience required.



Below is an overview of the new and noteworthy features included in Corel Paint
Shop Pro X:

The Paint Shop Pro X Learning Center: The new Learning Center
organizes tools logically by task, providing users with a step-by-step guide and
quick access to the instructions and tools needed to complete the most common
photo editing projects.



Browser Palette: The Browser palette is now integrated into the
Paint Shop Pro X workspace to make it even easier for users to access, view, organize,
and work with their images.



Smart Photo Fix: The new Smart Photo Fix analyzes a photo and
suggests settings to auto-correct color, brightness, sharpness, and saturation
-- all in one step. Smart Photo Fix gives users new levels of control by
allowing them to combine the simplicity of automatic corrections with the precision
and control of manual adjustments.



Makeover Tools: Paint Shop Pro X introduces a powerful new collection
of extreme Makeover Tools to help users quickly and easily retouch the subjects
in their photos. The Makeover Tools include the Blemish Fixer, Toothbrush and
Suntan Brush.



Object Remover: The new Object Remover lets users seamlessly
eliminate unwanted elements from photos, intelligently filling in the resulting
gaps with appropriate background detail.

Effects filters in Paint Shop Pro X, users can now easily convert images to simulated
black and white infrared or apply color filters while converting to black and
white images.



Corel Photo Album 6 -- Standard Edition: Included for the
first time with Paint Shop Pro X, Corel Photo Album 6 provides efficient organization,
sharing and photo backup options, along with hundreds of new drag-and-drop creative
project templates.



Advanced Features: Paint Shop Pro X now includes support for
16-bit/channel adjustments, ICC-based color management, the ability to import
and export CMYK images using ICC profiles, along with enhanced monitor calibration
that allows LCD screens to be correctly calibrated.



Camera Raw support: Paint Shop Pro X now supports over forty
Camera Raw file formats. Users can open, enhance, process, and convert images
taken in the Camera Raw format.



Batch Processing: Users can easily process batches of images
with Paint Shop Pro X. The Batch Process command lets them use scripts to apply
fixes to batches of images, and users can also convert batches of images to a
different file format.



Perspective Correction Tool: With the Perspective Correction
tool, users can fix buildings, landmarks, or objects in their photos that appear
to be in the wrong perspective or that were taken from an angle other than directly
in front.



Straighten Tool: The Straighten tool lets users quickly align
crooked photos and automatically crop the edges using any line in the photo.

Available for a suggested retail price of $129 US, Corel Paint Shop Pro X includes
Corel Photo Album 6 -- Standard Edition, Pixmantec® RawShooter™
essentials, two hours of free lynda.com video instruction and a printed user manual.
