Tamron USA, Inc. announced that
its new zoom lens, SP AF200-500mm F/5-6.3 Di LD (IF), won the prestigious Hot1
award. The 2004 Hot1 Awards were the biggest ever, with over 200 total entries
in more than 40 categories. This was the sixth consecutive year for the awards,
and the contest has grown in popularity and prestige in each year of its existence.
The awards are designed to evaluate and honor top-grade products for the professional
photography market. Professional Photographer magazine holds an open entry period
during which companies voluntarily enter products in various categories, providing
all pertinent product information directly. Professional Photographer editors
then audit the categories, make any necessary adjustments or changes, and submit
all the information to the panel of expert judges.

The Hot1 judging panel is made up of working professional photographers. These
photographers are selected for their specific knowledge of certain market segments
and asked to vote on product categories that fall within their area of expertise.
The judges are all respected professionals, well recognized in the industry.
To maintain the highest level of fairness, none of the judges are employed by
Professional Photographer magazine. For a variety of reasons, Professional Photographer
does not disclose the identity of the judges, though individual judges may chose
to identify themselves during the judging process. A plurality of votes determines
the winner of a category.

Tamron's new super telephoto zoom lens began shipping this August. The new high-performance
Di model has a telephoto range of 500mm and is a proud new addition to the Tamron
SP-series. Featuring such accessories as a filter effect controller (FEC), which
enables easy control of the PL filter even when a hood is attached, and a detachable
tripod mount, the lens comes equipped with everything necessary for capturing
quality sports and wildlife photographs. In addition, to meet the needs of this
dual-format world (silver-halide and digital), the optical system of the lens
is designed to provide optimum performance when used with the latest digital
SLR cameras that are becoming more popular than ever.

Photographer and author Mikkel Aaland is the quintessential early adopter, always
one of the first to master new digital photography software--and to wring every
bit of functionality out of it in the process. Shortly after the public beta
release of Adobe (R) Lightroom (TM) software, a digital imaging workflow solution
for professional photographers, he devised the ultimate road test to put Lightroom
through its paces in the field: Adobe Lightroom Adventure 2006.

Aaland invited eleven acclaimed photographers to join him in Iceland, from July
28 to August 5, 2006. This intrepid crew--joined by three top Icelandic photographers--is
shooting by day and using Adobe Lightroom beta to import, select, develop, and
showcase their large volume of digital images each night. Adobe is represented
by four imaging specialists who will both shoot and assist other photographers
as they work with both the Lightroom and Photoshop applications. The journey
and a sampling of the resulting photographs are chronicled in the Lightroom
Adventure blog at
And Aaland is capturing the lessons learned in the field for his book on Adobe
Lightroom, to be published by O'Reilly Media in early 2007.

Premium sponsors for the Lightroom Adventure are Adobe, ExpoImaging, the Iceland
Tourist Board, Icelandair, Lowepro, and O'Reilly. Additional sponsors supporting
the event are Epson, Fosshotel, Graystone Travel, Hertz, the Oflun Group, SanDisk,
and SAS Radisson 1919 Hotel.

The photographers joining Aaland in Iceland for the Lightroom Adventure are:

There's lots to like about the new Olympus C-7000 camera, including the
size of the image files it puts out and the "seamless" 30X zoom
(5X optical and 6X digital combined) that delivers better quality digital zooms
than many cameras we've worked with in the past. The C-7000 is aimed at
those who like to get involved with their photography, and offers as many options
and modes as you could desire. They certainly make this a camera that allows
you to flex your creative muscles. Granted, you have to delve into the menu
to get at most of the options, something that helps streamline the body but
can hold up spontaneous changes.
