Lexar Media announced it is now shipping the Lexar Professional Secure Digital Extended Capacity (SDXC) 133x memory card in capacities of 128GB, an industry first, and 64GB. The Lexar Professional SDXC cards are available in B&H Photo and Video, and Adorama Camera stores across the U.S, as well as on www.lexar.com.

These large capacities make Lexar Professional 133x SDXC cards an excellent choice for shooting continuous, rapid-fire images and extended lengths of 1080p high-definition (HD) video on a single, high-performance solution. Also, the Professional SDXC cards offer a Class 10 speed rating with a minimum guaranteed speed of 133x, or 20MB per second, and accelerate professional workflow by quickly transferring high-resolution images and HD video from the memory card to the computer when paired with an SDXC-enabled card reader, such as the Lexar Multi-Card 24-in-1 USB Reader.

Fujifilm U.S.A., Inc. is pleased to announce a new promotion that enables professional
event, school, and directory photographers to purchase an entire S5 Pro commercial
studio system kit, complete with bar code reader, at a price of $2399.95. Available
through authorized Fujifilm dealers, this promotion represents a savings of $360
on the original price.



The S5 Pro's new bar code reader functionality combines with unique features
such as password protected feature and control lockout, film simulation modes,
iTTL commander flash control, and white balance and color fine tune adjustments.
In addition to the renowned Super CCD SR Pro color accuracy and high quality JPEG
modes, the FinePix S5 Pro is quickly becoming the camera of choice for professional
event, school and directory photographers.



At the heart of the FinePix S5 Pro is Real Photo Technology Pro, which combines
the Super CCD SR Pro sensor and the new RP Processor Pro, and allows for the wide
dynamic range with smoother tonality from brightest light to darkest shadow. The
S5 Pro offers six preset dynamic range settings for expanded dynamic range between
100% and 400% and three new variations of the original film simulation modes pioneered
in the FinePix S3 Pro have been added (five modes in total).



Of particular appeal to event and school photographers is the ability to attach
a bar code reader wand directly to the FinePix S5 Pro via the 10-pin serial port
on the camera. Bar codes are stored directly in the image file's EXIF header
so that images can later be linked to a school, hotel, cruise ship or other name
database. The FinePix S5 Pro also offers an innovative password protected menu
and button lock down system that enables flawless deployment in a multiple photographer
environment, thus reducing errors caused by changing the camera's programmed
setup.



In addition, Fujifilm is also offering professional photographers a free copy
of Fujifilm HyperUtility HS-V3 and Pantone Huey Pro with purchase of the S5 Pro
Body Only Kit, a savings of $240 with mail-in rebate.

OP/TECH USA’s UTILITY STRAP– Sling Version offers rapid access to camera or binoculars while maintaining the security of a strap worn across the shoulder. Using OP/TECH USA's exclusive Uni-Loop connectors, gear hangs securely at the side and will glide up and down the continuous loop sling without interfering with a camera's tripod connection. Most cameras will attach with a single Uni-Loop connector, but cameras with a second attachment point on the right side, or cameras with battery grips will use two. An adjustable “stop” lets the photographer configure the position where the camera hangs best. The quick disconnects allows one to change from a sling configuration to a more conventional neck/shoulder strap using any of OP/TECH USA's System Connectors (sold separately). The UTILITY STRAP is fully adjustable and is available in black. It’s proudly made 100% in the USA.

The Olympus E-P1 is said to be the world’s smallest 12.3-megapixel interchangeable lens system camera that blends the high-quality still images of a digital single lens reflex (DSLR) with High Definition (HD) video, stereo Linear PCM audio recording and In-Camera Creativity within an ultra-portable body.

Olympus has a long history of miniaturizing camera technology. The first-generation Olympus PEN appeared in 1959 and led the way to high-quality images in a small package, matching SLR cameras’ performance of the era.Today, Olympus utilized its miniaturizing and engineering expertise to create a slimmer body, removing the optical viewfinder and mirror box found inside a traditional DSLR, to create a small but high-quality interchangeable lens camera. By reducing its lens mount diameter, Olympus also enabled the production of smaller and lighter lenses to match the E-P1’s body size.

 The camera’s retro-style metal body design is available in either silver or white with accompanying new small and lightweight Olympus M. ZUIKO Micro Four Thirds lenses: 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 (28-84mm equivalent) and 17mm f2.8 (34mm equivalent).

Nikon Inc. has introduced its newest flagship COOLPIX compact camera, the COOLPIX
P6000. Featuring 13.5 megapixels, a new, built-in global positioning system (GPS)
unit, my Picturetown connectivity and the power of Nikon's exclusive EXPEED image
processing concept, the P6000 offers the creative control of a DSLR in the compact
body of a COOLPIX camera.

The P6000 knows where the "best shots" are taken, thanks to the integration
of the new GPS unit. With the added GPS function, P6000 users will be able to
record "geotags" of the location where their images are captured based
on latitudinal and longitudinal coordinates. This further heightens the photographic
experience, allowing users to pinpoint the location via maps available in Nikon
ViewNX Software, my Picturetown, Nikon's photo sharing and storage website,
or any other software or website that recognizes GPS data.



Additionally, the P6000 makes my Picturetown connectivity for uploading and sharing
photos simple and easy, thanks to added wired LAN support via a dedicated Ethernet
port built into the camera. Users can upload their images and data directly from
the P6000 with an Ethernet cable to the secure Picture Bank service on my Picturetown.



In line with other COOLPIX P-Series cameras, the P6000 includes intuitive controls
via dedicated command and mode dials, providing easy access to shooting controls
and exposure mode settings. The P6000 offers Programmed Auto [P], Shutter-priority
Auto [S], Aperture-priority Auto [A] and Manual [M] modes granting users the ability
to tap into the creativity of D-SLR functions while maintaining the simplicity
of COOLPIX functionality. Owners can utilize two user-defined settings, a shooting
menu, an efficient, tabbed menu interface, as well as customizable Function buttons
to quickly switch between camera settings.



Additional shooting innovations engineered to maximize image quality and offer
greater control over the final results include Nikon's original COOLPIX
Picture Control System and a new NRW* (RAW) support. The COOLPIX Picture Control
System features intuitive controls that enable users to adjust their images to
pre-set parameters such as Standard, Neutral, Vivid and Monochrome and apply tweaks
to image sharpening, tone compensation, brightness, overall tone and saturation.
Furthermore, images shot in the all-new NRW* (RAW) format can be opened and viewed
in Nikon ViewNX Software (available early October 2008) for increased editing
abilities.



Adding even more synergy between D-SLR cameras and compact COOLPIX cameras, the
P6000 incorporates a pop-up flash, optical viewfinder for easy composition and
the added bonus of system expansion with an optional convertor, Speedlights, and
wireless remote control. Nikon's new 0.76x Wide-angle Convertor WC-E76 offers
users the option to utilize focal lengths as wide as 21mm (35mm format equivalent).
P6000 users can also take full advantage of Nikon's Creative Lighting System with
the built-in accessory shoe that supports Nikon's i-TTL flash control, which enables
wireless control over one group of remote Speedlights including the newly announced
SB-900 Speedlight.



The P6000 features a quality finish and a front panel constructed of solid Magnesium
alloy, as well as a comfortable grip and well-placed controls for streamlined
performance. The new P6000 camera is compatible with new high-capacity SDHC cards,
and utilizes a Nikon EN-EL5 rechargeable Li-ion battery. The P6000 also comes
bundled with the COOLPIX Software Suite for editing, organizing and sharing images.



The Nikon COOLPIX P6000 will be available nationwide beginning September 2008
at a MSRP of $499.95. For more information about the P6000 and other COOLPIX cameras,
please visit www.nikonusa.com.
