Leaf has debuted its new Leaf Aptus S-Series at Photokina. The three new digital
camera backs: Leaf Aptus 75S, Leaf Aptus 65S, and Leaf Aptus 54S-- feature
record-breaking speed rates and unlimited burst depths.



The Leaf Aptus S-Series camera backs have the capability to deliver exceptional
shooting speeds from 0.8 seconds per frame--or as many as 75 frames per
minute--with unlimited burst depths. The design incorporates advanced,
accelerated image-processing hardware, including a new, lossless image-compression
engine, designed to achieve record-breaking speeds. Leaf has significantly accelerated
shooting speed by doubling the CCD sensor readout speed, and has also doubled
the buffer size to effectively support unlimited burst depths. The new S-Series
maximizes the newest Sandisk CompactFlash Extreme IV card technology for portable
shooting. The camera backs support the latest Firewire 800 standard for data
transfer of up to 800Mbps and sensitivity levels up to 800 ISO.



The Leaf Aptus is the world's first and only camera back with a built-in
6 x 7 cm touch screen LCD. This design innovation enables professional photographers
to work intuitively, accessing any point on the RAW image with one touch for
quick evaluation. The large touch screen gives one-tap access to a range of
essential functions and predefined settings that are typically needed before
and during a photo shoot. The interface can be accessed in six languages, including
Chinese and Japanese.



New Leaf Capture 10 versions for PC and Intel Mac

The latest version of Leaf Capture 10.1 now includes live video, a new temperature
slider, and additional new features. Leaf is also launching a PC version of
Leaf Capture 10. Designed for simplicity, the Leaf Capture 10 application is
the ideal shooting partner for professional photographers. The software supports
real-time adjustment and perfection of images while the photos are being taken,
using one clear, simple window to perform the tasks and view the results. With
the ability to view Leaf RAW images 1:1, photographers can see the true data
from their shots and check essential settings. The ease and efficiency of this
operation deliver significant timesavings and productivity gains.



At the show Leaf is showcasing three demonstration studios to represent a commercial
studio, a fashion shoot, and a surprise main attraction.

Fujifilm U.S.A., Inc. is pleased to announce plans to re-introduce an ISO 50 Fujichrome
Velvia professional film, tentatively named Velvia II. Fujichrome Velvia (RVP
50) was the first high color saturation, high contrast transparency E-6 compatible
film when it was introduced in 1990 and was a favorite among photographers. Its
discontinuation was announced last year due to difficulties in procuring some
of the raw materials used to produce the emulsion.



As a result, Fujifilm research and development teams have developed substitute
raw materials and new manufacturing technologies that enable the company to restart
production. The new film is expected to be available in late spring 2007. The
characteristics of the new emulsion will mirror that of the previous product.

The American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP), joined by the Graphic Artists Guild, the Picture Archive Council of America, the North American Nature Photography Association, Professional Photographers of America, photographers Leif Skoogfors, Al Satterwhite, Morton Beebe, Ed Kashi and illustrators John Schmelzer and Simms Taback, has filed a class action copyright infringement suit against Google, Inc. in the U.S. District for the Southern District of New York. The suit, which was filed by Mishcon de Reya New York LLP, relates to Google’s illegal scanning of millions of books and other publications containing copyrighted images and displaying them to the public without regard to the rights of the visual creators. ASMP and the other trade associations, representing thousands of members, decided to file the class action after the Court denied their request to join the currently pending $125 million class action that had previously been filed primarily on behalf of text authors in connection with the Google Library Project. The new class action goes beyond Google’s Library Project, and includes Google’s other systematic and pervasive infringements of the rights of photographers, illustrators and other visual artists.
