Pentax Imaging Company has announced the Pentax K10D digital SLR camera with
10.2 effective megapixels and a host of advanced technologies including a Pentax-developed
Shake Reduction (SR) system and a weather- resistant body.



The most significant features in the K10D include a Pentax-developed Shake Reduction
(SR) system that effectively offers a 2.5 to 4 stop advantage for sharp, blur-free
images even under difficult shooting conditions, such as macro and telephoto
photography or low light settings without a flash. The system does not require
special anti-shake lenses and can be used with more than 24 million Pentax lenses
produced since 1964.

Wacom Technology Corp. has announced two new members to the Cintiq family --
the Cintiq 12WX and Cintiq 20WSX. The Cintiq 12WX combines all the advantages
and power of direct pen-on-screen input with a new low-profile, lightweight and
flexible design. The new Cintiq 12WX is aimed at professional creators of digital
content looking to improve and streamline their workflow. Storyboarding for 2D
or 3D animations, compositing for post production, designing graphics, as well
as retouching photos are just a few of the many creative applications where the
Cintiq 12WX will excel.



Also joining Wacom's Cintiq lineup is the Cintiq 20WSX, the world's
first wide-format desktop pen display. Combining the the same design elements
and ergonomic enhancements as the Cintiq 21UX, Wacom's latest wide-format
pen display is ideal for those who prefer to work with a 16:10 aspect ratio and
may not require the increased resolution of the 21UX.

Epson America Inc. has announced the the Epson PowerLite 76c. Featuring up to
2,000 ANSI lumens of brightness with XGA native resolution (1,024 x 768) in a
5.7-pound design, the PowerLite 76c is slated to sell for $1,099 (estimated street
price.) Driven by Epson's 3LCD technology, a three-chip engine design that
projects continuous color and vibrant images, the PowerLite 76c is said to display
a wide color gamut with excellent brightness and edge-to-edge consistency. In
addition, the PowerLite 76c comes with a new Instant OffTM feature for immediate
shutdown of the projector. Epson has also equipped the PowerLite 76c with new
lamp technology, E-TORL (Epson Twin Optimized Reflection Lamp), to deliver what
is said to be a superior level of brightness in a compact form factor. E-TORL
efficiently gathers and projects light to reduce light leakage and diffraction.



To get presentations up and running quickly and smoothly, the PowerLite 76c takes
only four seconds between pressing the power button and projection of the start-up
screen. And, with Epson's exclusive Instant Off feature, no cool down time
is necessary. Users can simply press the power button and unplug the power cable
immediately at the end of their presentation.



For added control, the PowerLite 76c features a "Source Search" button
which automatically identifies and displays the connected inputs and changes instantly
between sources. A 1.2x optical zoom lens enables users to easily adjust the display
size to project large images from relatively short throw distances, resulting
in a wide range of set-up possibilities. The unit's 30-degree keystone correction
ensures a high-quality display, even in less-than-ideal environments. Depending
on the presenting environment, the PowerLite 76c allows users to choose a 1,500
ANSI lumens "Low Brightness" mode to increase lamp life.



The included remote control enables PowerPoint and Keynote presentation slides
to be advanced and manipulated without using a PC. The projector also offers several
useful features for ceiling-mount projection, including top-side access for easy
lamp replacement, front-side access for air-filter replacement, easy switch to
ceiling-mount mode (inverted picture) via the remote control, and direct power-on
that is activated automatically when a room's power source is switched on.




The Epson PowerLite 76c will be available through authorized pro audio/visual,
national distribution, catalog, and direct PC dealers in October 2005. Epson's
PowerLite projectors come with a two-year limited warranty that includes three
elite technical support services -- two-year Epson PrivateLine™ availability,
two-year Road Service Program and two-year International Warranty. Through the
PrivateLine, projector owners can directly access an expedited support telephone
line (typically in about one minute) by using a phone card that is included with
the product.

They’re ideal for photographers on the move - Sports, Nature, Landscape, Travel – and in the studio.

With the introduction of the new BHD-Series, Induro has brought the professional ballhead to a new level. These dual-action ballheads offer increased load capacities, large ergonomic locking knobs, adjustable drag and tension control, independent panning control and much more. To provide maximum strength and lighter weight, the new BHD-series ballheads are made of precision-machined Magnesium alloy. In response to photographers’ requests, the latest Induro ballheads have an Arca-Swiss style quick release plate system.

Nik Software has announced that Viveza, its popular digital photographic plug-in filter is now available for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 and higher. Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2.3 and Camera Raw 5.3, is available immediately for download at www.adobe.com/downloads/updates/. The Lightroom 2.3 and Camera Raw 5.3 updates, originally posted as release candidates for community testing on January 23, provide raw file support for the newly-released Nikon D3X and Olympus E-30 cameras and support for eight additional languages.

Viveza installs as a plug-in filter for Lightroom 2 and is accessible via the Lightroom Photo>Edit In… menu. Edits made using the plug-in within Lightroom are non-destructive in nature, with edits applied automatically to a newly generated TIFF file and not the original. Viveza also takes advantage of Lightroom and its efficiencies for every day tasks, like the ability to edit multiple images in one session, saving time for photographers.

All Nik Software plug-in products now feature Nik’s patented U Point® technology which revolutionizes the way photographers edit. U Point powered Control Points give photographers precise selective editing functions without the need to create complicated selections and layer masks. This innovative technology is easy to use and works directly on the image, empowering photographers to make selective enhancements in a fraction of the time needed by using other methods.
