Komotion, Inc., the makers of the Web Gallery Wizard, has announced the release
of Shozam Web Gallery Generator, which automatically creates Web galleries to
showcase photos, video and other digital media.



Shozam is said to put content ownership back in the hands of users. It is a software
tool that lets users create and control their own multimedia Web galleries. Users
import and arrange media, write captions and descriptions, add audio and select
a professionally-designed theme. With the click of a button, Shozam generates
a Web site with seven different page layouts, including a slideshow view, which
users can upload to any Web host.



Shozam automatically optimizes images, and the entire gallery is uploaded at one
time. This process is said to be up to 40 times faster than submitting original
photos to a photo sharing service. Shozam is said to eliminate the need for online
photo sites which can over-compress photos, clutter the site with ads, impose
restrictions, or require minimum purchases of add-ons like prints and calendars.
The makers say that if the said service goes out of business, the gallery --
and the work and time that went into it -- can disappear. Even worse, precious
photos can be lost.



Available in five editions for Windows, Shozam Web Gallery Generator starts at
just $49.95 and grows with a user's needs, from simple photo gallery creation
to a full-featured Web site with image protection, shopping cart and more. For
more about Shozam Editions, features and pricing, or to download the free trial,

Eastman Kodak Company is extending its partnership with Leica Camera AG to
provide image sensors for the newly announced LEICA M8. The new KODAK KAF-10500
image sensor was developed specifically for use with the M8, and marks Kodak's
second collaboration with Leica, building on the success of Kodak's interaction
with Leica on the LEICA DIGITAL-MODULE-R.



The first digital camera to use the Leica viewfinder system, the LEICA M8 extends
the Leica M series into the digital world. By working closely with Leica, Kodak
designed and optimized the new image sensor to meet the demanding needs of Leica
photographers.



With a resolution of over 10 million pixels, the KAF-10500 continues Kodak's
legacy of offering high performance imaging devices that leverage Kodak's
Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) technology for low noise, high sensitivity, and wide
dynamic range. Utilizing a 6.8µm pixel architecture, the sensor uses an
optimized microlens configuration to maximize center to corner uniformity for
improved image quality, particularly important for the broad incident light
angles associated with M series lenses. The sensor also includes anti-blooming
protection to prevent against image corruption during high light level conditions.

Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE:EK) has achieved another breakthrough in imaging technology
innovation with the introduction of the world's first 50 million pixel CCD
image sensor for professional photography. At 50 million pixels, or megapixels,
the sensor captures digital images with unprecedented resolution and detail. For
instance, with a 50 megapixel camera, in an aerial photo of a field 1-½
miles across, you could detect an object about the size of a small notebook computer
(1 foot by 1 foot).



What's more, the KODAK KAF-50100 Image Sensor features a newly designed
pixel that is smaller in size than the pixel used in current products for this
professional market. This new pixel also reduces "click-to-capture"
time for improved camera response, lowers power consumption for improved battery
life, and improves color fidelity without compromising on the benefits to be enjoyed
from larger pixel sizes.



"Professional photographers need to capture ever-increasing image detail
with higher camera performance, and that to drives us to develop new technologies
and products to serve this important market," said Michael Miller, manager
of Kodak's CCD Image Sensor Business, part of the company's Image
Sensor Solutions group. "Kodak image sensors have been known as the professional
imaging standard for years, and today's announcement reaffirms our dedication
to provide industry-leading image sensors that give professional photographers
a real competitive advantage."



The new Kodak sensor is the first to utilize the company's new KODAK TRUESENSE
6.0 micron Full Frame CCD Technology Platform, which increases both the resolution
and camera performance available to photographers. Based on a newly designed 6.0
micron pixel, the platform provides increased data throughput for faster frame
rate, a reduced "click to capture" time for improved camera response,
lower power consumption for improved battery life, and improved color fidelity,
while still retaining key performance parameters available from the larger, 6.8
micron pixel used in current products. With an 8176 x 6132 pixel array, the 50
million pixel sensor provides the highest resolution available in the popular
48 mm x 36 mm optical format used in medium format photography.



The KAF-50100 is the latest addition to Kodak's family of full-frame CCD
image sensors for the professional photography market. Engineering grade devices
of the KAF-50100 are currently available, with volume production planned for Q4,
2008.


For additional information regarding this technology, please contact Image Sensor
Solutions, Eastman Kodak Company at (585) 722-4385 or by email at imagers@kodak.com.

Firing at 8.5
frames per second for up to 48 full-resolution JPEG images in a burst (vs. the
same firing rate and a 40 JPEG burst for the 1D Mark II model), the new Canon
EOS-1D Mark II N camera ups the ante while retaining the superb CMOS Sensor of
the 1D Mark II model, with its convenient 1.3x lens conversion factor. Along with
its improved burst rate, the 1D Mark II N digital SLR adds a new 2.5-inch, wide-angle
view LCD/TFT monitor. Startup time on the new camera has also dropped to 0.2 seconds
(from 0.3) with the help of Canon's DIGIC II Image Processor.



The EOS-1D Mark II N camera shares with the EOS-1 series family its all-metal
body and chassis and weather-resistant construction with its shutter durability-tested
to 200,000 exposures. And perhaps best of all, the price of the new camera, $3,999,
is actually $500 less than the initial price of its predecessor.



Along with the new, 2.5-inch LCD wide-angle view display are several significant
improvements in image playback. For starters, the user can have a magnified view
from any selected AF point. Previously, magnified views took the center of the
image as the starting point, but a new menu item enables the user to select a
specific AF point and magnify the image in 15 steps with the press of a button.
Another new feature on the camera is magnified view during Quick Review. When
an image is displayed on the LCD monitor immediately after capture, the user can
immediately magnify the view to check focus right away. Other improved playback
functions include a last displayed image remembered feature and a more complete
INFO display which now shows file size and includes notations for monochrome (B/W)
and color (R/G/B) when the RGB histogram is enabled.



An improved image processing sequence and a better memory management method in
the EOS-1D Mark II N digital SLR has ramped up its burst capability with the camera
now able to shoot up to 22 RAW frames and up to 48 full-resolution JPEGs in burst.
The camera can also shoot 19 frames of RAW+JPEG (JPEG quality: 8, Picture Style:
Standard, ISO 100); and at 59 frames or better at the JPEG Middle 1 setting, 77
frames or better at JPEG Middle 2, and 135 or better at JPEG small, a substantial
increase. Additionally, the EOS-1D Mark II N digital SLR now creates new folders
automatically when file numbers reach 9999, making the new camera more responsive
in fast-moving news and sports photography situations. Photographers can even
customize the first four characters in filenames, enabling superior image organization
and camera identification capabilities.



Just like on the EOS-1D Mark II model, the EOS-1D Mark II N digital SLR lets the
user save the same image simultaneously in both the CompactFlash (CF) and SD memory
card slots, a highly effective backup mechanism. Photographers can also record
to slot one until it was full and then go to slot two as a reserve. Now, with
the EOS-1D Mark II N in RAW+JPEG mode, it's also possible to save the RAW and
JPEG images separately in each memory card. The RAW images can be saved in slot
one and the JPEGs, in any of ten quality levels, in slot two, or vice versa. Since
CF cards tend to be larger, currently, than SD cards, the RAW files will be likelier
to go on the CF card in slot one, but this is not required. The new option allows
images to be recorded separately according to usage, finally realizing a great
potential benefit of the dual slot configuration.



A new feature called Picture Styles combines processing parameters and color matrix
settings into easy settings designed to obtain the desired effect, almost like
choosing a type of film to obtain a specific result.
