Its unique Rear Curtain Sync automatically engages to delay flash until the absolute end of the exposure with either on-camera or remote Canon speedlights as well as flashes triggered by standard PocketWizard radios or any studio flash with built-in PocketWizard receiver. Exclusive Pre-Flash Boost automatically increases preflash power to provide enhanced and more stable E-TTL performance for bounce flash, when using flash diffusers and for flash fill in bright daylight conditions.

Fujifilm has announced the new FinePix S6000fd, the first digital camera with
Fujifilm's Face Detection Technology. Also today, Fujifilm unveiled the FinePix
F20, a sister camera to the FinePix F30.



The
newest component of Fujifilm's Real Photo Technology, Face Detection Technology
operates exactly as its name implies, detecting up to 10 human faces regardless
of their position in the scene. Once identified, Fujifilm's Face Detection Technology
prioritizes the faces. Then, the FinePix S6000fd adjusts its focus and exposure
automatically so the intended subject is sharp, clear and exposed in the most
flattering manner. The photographer can easily disengage the Face Detection Technology
at the touch of a button.



Face Detection Technology is a complement to the other components of Real Photo
Technology, particularly the i-Flash system, which also is found on the SLR-styled
FinePix S6000fd. After the detection system identifies faces and the camera sets
focus and exposure, i-Flash adjusts its power intensity accordingly depending
on scene conditions. The end result of the two features working in concert is
a more life-like 'people picture' with natural tones and finer detail.

Designed to be the replacement for the late Agfa Classic 111 paper, ADOX Premium MCC 110 uses the same emulsion as the original Agfa, but on a neutral white paper base instead of the old warm base. Other than the whiter base, everything else about MCC 110 is exactly the same as Agfa Classic. ADOX Premium MCC 110 also reacts well to warm and cold-tone developers with impressive tonal shifts, and is excellent for lith printing.

SanDisk Corporation, (NASDAQ: SNDK) has announced it has begun to sample 12-gigabyte
(GB) microSDHC flash memory cards to major phone manufacturers for testing and
evaluation. The 12GB card represents a 50 percent boost in card capacity from
SanDisk's industry-leading 8GB microSDHC cards, which are currently available
worldwide, and highlights the growing popularity of mobile phones with storageintensive
features that include music players, digital cameras, video recording and playback
and GPS capabilities.



SanDisk has embarked on a `slot education' program to raise awareness
of both the card slot included in the majority of new mobile phones available
today and the benefits to the consumers who use it. More information is available
at: www.WakeUpYourPhone.com.



A 12GB microSDHC is ideal for storing large quantities of music, photos and
video. For example, it will be able to store a combination of 1,500 songs, 3,600
photos and 24.5 hours of video.



SDHC is the designation for any SD or SD-based card that is larger than 2GB
and adheres to the new SD 2.00 specification required for cards and hosts to
support 4GB to 32GB capacities. The specification was developed by the SD Association,
an industry standards board, which has also created three classes to define
minimum sustained data transfer speed. These cards adhere to the SD Speed Class
4 Rating.

Fujifilm has introduced three new models to its digital camera portfolio, including
the FinePix S9000 and FinePix E900 digital cameras - the world's first consumer
level cameras with nine MegaPixel sensors. In addition, Fujifilm's popular S-series
line
now features the new FinePix S5200, offering five MegaPixels with a fully automatic
point-and-shoot feature set.



These three new models will feature Fujifilm's Real Photo Technology, a synergy
of the newly developed RP Processor, the 5th
Generation Super CCD HR sensor and a Fujinon lens that is said to provide many
benefits including reduced noise for sharper pictures, better low-light shooting,
faster operation and higher shutter speeds that minimize blurriness in photos
even at the high ISO setting, as achieved by the FinePix S9000 model.



The FinePix S9000 offers traditional SLR-like styling for serious photo enthusiasts
and Fujifilm's proprietary Super CCD HR (High Resolution) sensor to capture
nine million effective pixels - the first consumer digital camera on the market
to offer such resolution. In addition to increased MegaPixels, the FinePix S9000
features a new 10.7x optical zoom with a 28mm-300 wide-angle equivalent.



According to Fujifilm, users of consumer-level digital cameras found that higher
MegaPixels often meant more noise, resulting in pictures files that were big
enough for enlargements, but often lacking in sharpness. With the FinePix S9000
users are said to be able to capture beautiful digital images with very little
noise at the high ISO settings at full resolution.



Additional features of the S9000 include a tilting LCD screen for shooting from
a variety of angles, the ability to shoot in the RAW file format, dual media
slots, 30 fps video at VGA resolution, hot shoe mount for external flash systems
and ultra high resolution achieved through the electronic viewfinder.



The FinePix E900 adds to Fujifilm's current E-series lineup, providing consumers
with a powerful nine million-pixel sensor in a compact design.



Similar to its predecessors, the FinePix E900 is a point and shoot camera that
expands with users as they broaden their imaging expertise. In addition to a
4x optical zoom and large two-inch LCD screen, the FinePix E900 also caters
to users seeking more advanced features, including mode dial for easy access
to common shooting functions, RAW mode and optional lens adapters. By incorporating
Real Photo Technology, the FinePix E900 can also achieve higher shutter speeds
that minimize blurriness in photos at ISO equivalent settings as high as 800.




Availability

The FinePix S9000 will be available in early September at $699.95. The FinePix
E900 and FinePix 5200 will be available in October at $499.95 and $399.95 respectively.
The FinePix S9000 and S5200 models will ship with four AA alkaline batteries
and the FinePix E900 model comes equipped with 2 NiMH rechargeable batteries.
All three models use Fujifilm's xD-Picture Card(tm) storage media.
