As the price of D SLR's, high-end digicams and film scanners has declined
substantially, an increasing number of photo enthusiasts are able to make high
resolution images. At some point, most will recognize that their current printers
are due for replacement. Frankly, many existing machines cannot provide the
optimal quality -- or the large output sizes -- that high resolution image files
can support. Consequently, we're seeing a trend to superior photo printers
in letter size and especially in larger formats.



With more photographers doing more of their own printing the issue of print
permanence was certainly a hot topic, encouraged especially by Hewlett-Packard
who, at the recent PMA show, featured Henry Wilhelm as a speaker. President
of Wilhelm Imaging Resource, an independent stability testing lab, Wilhelm is
certainly an expert in all issues relating to archival issues. He recently made
news with the announcement of a new standard for print life, the WIR Display
Permanence Rating. Many existing photo printers and papers should qualify for
this Certification program, which requires a minimum on-display life of 25 years.
Do note, however, that some manufacturers may prefer to wait for standards to
be published by the international ISO or the American ANSI organization. This
could be a long wait, according to some insiders.



New Printers We've Seen

Employing the UltraChrome Hi Gloss pigmented inkset originally designed for
the (letter size) R800, the new Epson Stylus Photo R1800 uses the Gloss Optimizer
coating to produce beautiful 13x19" (or longer) prints on glossy papers.
Another fast machine, this one can also make an 11"x14" color image
in less than two minutes thanks to Advanced Micro Piezo ink jet technology with
180 nozzles per ink. The Stylus Photo R1800 offers resolution up to 5760 x 1440
optimized dpi and it can print on sheet and roll paper or onto inkjet printable
CDs and DVDs. (Street price $549.)

The Fujifilm Finepix 200 EXR (list: $599; street, under $500) sports a 12 megapixel sensor and a 14.3X optical zoom lens that is equivalent to 30.5-436mm (!) It takes stills and high-quality video and has a built in mic that delivers quality sound without much if any whirring from the camera. Having that much zoom capability means that you never will want on the tele side with this integral lens camera, and even 30mm is not bad on the wide side.

Looking like a small D-SLR with a moderate zoom lens, the S200EXR actually sports a 30.5-436mm optical zoom, an incredible range in a lens this small, though smaller sensor size is part of the reason they could attain the smaller size.

In recognition of the centenary of Victor Hasselblad's birth on March 8, 2006,
Hasselblad has announced the Hasselblad 503CWD Anniversary Kit, a prestigious
high-end photographic system that offers state-of-the-art digital capture technology
elegantly integrated with a classically designed Hasselblad 503CW body.



Combining the rugged reliability of the black and chrome V System body, with its
range of high performance, central shutter-based lenses, and the technology of
Hasselblad's new CFV digital back, the exclusive Hasselblad 503CWD perfectly melds
the heritage of the old Hasselblad with the focus of the new Hasselblad on digital
high-end photography to create a new digital workhorse. Of undoubted appeal to
the Hasselblad connoisseur, the camera delivers the perfect blend of versatility
and simplicity in a compact, professional tool that gives the user complete control
over digital image capture and is a pleasure to operate.



The 503CWD Anniversary kit will be supplied as a limited edition of 500 cameras,
each one numbered and engraved with Victor Hasselblad's signature. Reassuringly
solid, the kit comprises a 503CWD body with waist-level finder, specially marked
focusing screen and chrome winding lever, a Zeiss Planar CFE 2.8/80mm lens and
a CFV digital back, and will be supplied with a beautifully produced book marking
Victor's anniversary.



For existing Hasselblad V System users, the new CFV digital back, the successor
of the V96C back, will also be available separately. Built to match the design
and functionality of the Hasselblad V System cameras, it can be easily and elegantly
integrated into an existing Hasselblad system, enabling the photographer to work
in exactly the same manner and with their preferred equipment, but with the productivity
benefits of digital photography over film.



MSRP Pricing: Hasselblad 503CWD

Anniversary Kit: $12,995

CFV: $9,995



Product availability will be the end of March. The Hasselblad website has been
updated with new product details.
