As part of its campaign to `Defend the Darkroom', Ilford Photo
- the monochrome brand of Harman technology Limited -- has announced a
special initiative in support of ultra large format (ULF) photographers. In
an increasingly digital world, these photographers can find it difficult to
buy the specialist analog products they require due to a shrinking number of
manufacturers and stocking dealers. However, to help ULF users overcome this
limited availability, as well as the need to purchase a minimum order quantity,
Ilford Photo has revealed it is running a two month ULF product ordering window.

PictoColor today announced the release of iCorrect EditLab ProApp 6.0 color correction
software. iCorrect EditLab ProApp offers serious photographers a simplified approach
to color correction and color editing for large volume workflows. When asked,
most professional photographers and photo enthusiasts say that one of the most
time consuming parts of their digital workflow is getting the color right. With
its highly-acclaimed technology, smartly arranged tools, and workflow enhancing
features, iCorrect EditLab ProApp will save hours and minimize the frustration
of making color adjustments so photographers can spend less time in front of the
computer and more time behind the camera.



At the heart of iCorrect EditLab ProApp is the new ProcessQ, a completely redesigned
image queue that allows photographers to easily view, sort, and manage their color
corrections for more efficient, time-saving workflows. After images are added
to ProcessQ, the entire collection is displayed as thumbnails at the bottom of
the main panel. With ProcessQ, users can step through and correct and save any
number of images - either one at a time or as an entire group. Adjustments can
even be synchronized across multiple images almost instantly for rapid fire batch
processing.



For photographers looking for an easier way to make the color right, iCorrect
EditLab Pro offers an intuitive, straight-forward tool set. iCorrect EditLab ProApp
consists of four separate tools logically arranged from left to right providing
a wizard-like approach to accurate color. The tools are designed in such a way
that as photographers progress from left to right, adjustments made with one tool
will not, and in fact, cannot be affected by any of the tools to its right. This
alleviates the common frustration of correcting for one thing while throwing off
another. With iCorrect EditLab ProApp, one pass through the tools and that's
it. Plus, each tool has an optional SmartColor feature which analyzes the image
and adjusts the settings to their initial recommended settings.



For digital photo purists who want to take full advantage of all the benefits
of RAW capture, iCorrect EditLab ProApp is said to be the perfect complement to
any RAW conversion software. It simplifies enhanced color adjustments with intuitive,
easy-to-use tools that eliminate the frustration of fine tuning images for final
presentation. After converting RAW image files with a favorite converter, photographers
can add that extra punch more quickly and easily with iCorrect EditLab ProApp's
unique wizard-like tool set.



For photographers looking to add creative artistic effects, iCorrect EditLab ProApp's
advanced technology makes black-and-white conversions and sepia tones easier than
ever before. iCorrect EditLab ProApp's unique approach allows users to control
how the colors map to gray scale as well as selectively retain certain colors
of the original image for stunning results.



Pricing and Availability

iCorrect EditLab ProApp 6.0 may be purchased at PictoColor's on-line store
at www.pictocolor.com for an introductory price of $99.95 as a software download.
iCorrect EditLab ProApp 6.0 will later sell for $149.95. An upgrade is available
to current users of any of PictoColor's iCorrect products for an introductory
price of $79.95 as a software download. Upgrades will later sell for $99.95. A
free downloadable demo version is available at www.pictocolor.com. Recommended

Windows® XP SP2, Window®Vista, Intel Pentium 4 Processor, and 768 MB RAM

application that will run natively on PowerPC and new Intel-based Macintosh systems.

There's lots to like about the new Olympus C-7000 camera, including the
size of the image files it puts out and the "seamless" 30X zoom
(5X optical and 6X digital combined) that delivers better quality digital zooms
than many cameras we've worked with in the past. The C-7000 is aimed at
those who like to get involved with their photography, and offers as many options
and modes as you could desire. They certainly make this a camera that allows
you to flex your creative muscles. Granted, you have to delve into the menu
to get at most of the options, something that helps streamline the body but
can hold up spontaneous changes.

Epson America, Inc. has unveiled its latest scanner for the advanced amateur
and creative consumer markets. The Epson Perfection V500 Photo color scanner
is said to provide professional results with 6400 dpi optical resolution. Also
featuring Epson's new ReadyScan LED technology, which delivers fast scans
and no warm-up time, the Epson V500 Photo is only $249.99.



With 6400 dpi optical resolution, users can create 17" x 22" or
bigger enlargements from film. Additionally, with 48-bit color depth and a 3.4
dynamic range, the Epson V500 Photo produces scans with brilliant, true-to-life
colors.



The energy-efficient ReadyScan LED technology completely eliminates warm-up
time both when turning on the scanner and when switching back-and-forth between
reflective and film scanning, as well as automatically turns off in standby
mode, using less power while offering greater productivity. Because the LED
is more efficient than cold cathode fluorescent lamps, users get fast scan speeds.
The ReadyScan LED also adjusts color of the light source based on the type of
original being scanned, using white light for positive film and blue light for
negative film, to produce precise and efficient scans. Additionally, the mercury-free
LEDs are friendly to the environment.



The Epson V500 Photo includes two powerful, yet easy-to-use complete photo restoration
solutions for advanced amateur photographers and creative consumers, including
Digital ICE and Epson Easy Photo Fix technology. Digital ICE is an innovative
technology that easily removes the appearance of dust and scratches from film,
eliminating the need for costly photo retouching services to get the best results.
Epson Easy Photo Fix restores faded color photos, slides and negatives back
to their original brilliance with one click.



Adding to the productivity of the EpsonV500 Photo scanner is a built-in transparency
unit (TPU) with a moving carriage and lamp optimized for scanning multiple 35mm
negatives, slides and medium-format film. The scanner can handle up to four
mounted slides or two film strips up to 12 total frames, or medium-format film
of 2-1/4", 120/220 and 6 x 12 cm. Additional features include an optional
Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) that enables users to quickly scan multiple
documents.



The Epson V500 Photo also comes with Epson Creativity Suite, which includes
Scan to E-Mail, Copy Utility and Scan to PDF; Adobe Photoshop Elements; and
ABBYY Fine Reader 6 Sprint Plus OCR (ABBYY Fine Reader®5 Sprint Plus OCR
for Mac). The scanner is compatible with Microsoft Windows 2000, Windows Me,
Windows XP, Windows Vista, Macintosh OS X 10.2.8 and later, and is also TWAIN
compliant.



The Epson V500 Photo can be purchased for an estimated street price of $249.99
from Epson authorized dealers, consumer electronic stores, mail order, distribution,
and on the Epson Store Web site (www.epsonstore.com).
The optional ADF will be available for an estimated street price of $199.99
on the Epson Store Web site. The Epson V500 Photo comes with a one-year limited
warranty. More information about the Epson V500 Photo and other Epson scanners
is available at www.epson.com
or 1-800-GO-EPSON (1-800-463-7766).
