Microsoft Corp., together with leading companies in the digital imaging industry,
today announced enhancements to the family of Windows operating systems that will
enable consumers to easily work with RAW files in current and future versions
of Windows. Working closely with digital imaging industry leaders including Adobe
Systems Inc., Canon Inc., Fuji Photo Film Co. Ltd. and Nikon Corp., Microsoft
plans to deliver native support for digital camera RAW images in the next major
version of Windows, code-named "Longhorn."



In addition, Microsoft is enhancing the digital imaging experience for Windows
XP with the upcoming availability of the Microsoft RAW Image Thumbnailer and Viewer
for Windows XP, allowing consumers to view thumbnails and preview and print Canon
and Nikon RAW files from Windows Explorer in Windows XP. These features, as well
as the ability to organize and edit Canon and Nikon RAW files, will also be available
in a future version of Digital Image Suite.



Microsoft also announced it is developing a certification program for third-party
RAW image codecs that will ensure their solutions provide a consistent experience
for consumers who are using RAW image files. With this new RAW support across
the Windows platform and products, Microsoft is enabling a seamless experience
for consumers working with RAW digital images and delivering an extensible architecture
for hardware and software industry partners.



Microsoft worked with imaging leaders to develop the digital camera RAW architecture
in "Longhorn" and to provide the best digital photography experience
for Windows consumers. "Longhorn" will deliver dramatic innovation
in RAW support for independent software developers, camera manufacturers and consumers.
Hardware and software partners will benefit from the standardized architecture
for image codecs, which allows them to contribute their own codecs to be certified
and implemented in Windows.



Microsoft's platform approach provides built-in support for RAW files, enabling
Windows-based applications to use all supported image types, including RAW. This
architecture enables software applications to seamlessly support new image types
upon codec certification by Microsoft. In addition, "Longhorn" will
provide an application programming interface (API) that enables software vendors
to exercise a higher degree of control over the RAW conversion in their applications,
while enabling market opportunities for professional-level conversion tools.



In addition to announcing the imaging enhancements planned for the next version
of Windows, Microsoft is helping Windows XP consumers realize the potential of
RAW files. The Microsoft RAW Image Thumbnailer and Viewer for Windows XP will
soon be available for free download* at http://www.microsoft.com.

Olympus has announced what they dub their next generation Stylus series camera:
the Stylus 500. Featuring a 2.5-inch HyperCrystal LCD, 5.0-megapixels of image
resolution, and a compact, durable, all-weather body, the Stylus 500 offers
Olympus' exclusive image processor, TruePic TURBO(tm), which is said to significantly
enhance image quality and deliver faster overall processing speeds for rapid
startup, shutter release and playback. The fast startup of less than one second
and nearly instant shutter release time ensures high-speed response. The body
is constructed of durable, lightweight metal with rubber gaskets throughout
the interior to ensure that rain, sleet, snow or sand won't get in the way.
The Stylus 500 has a new flat-surface body design that takes the series in a
new direction and, at a compact size of 3.9" (W) x 2.2" (H) x 1.2"
(D), it fits snugly into a pocket. The circular lens barrier tucks away inside
the camera body with a snap when powered on, and protects the lens with an impenetrable
seal with closed, leaving the camera face smooth and flat. The camera's 23 shooting
modes now include two new underwater shooting modes and two Shoot & Select
modes, which enable users to shoot rapid sequences of frames then select the
best shot from the series and delete the rest.
