Casio, Inc. has introduced the EXILIM PRO EX-P700, with a 7.2 million megapixel
CCD and 4X optical zoom. The EX-P700 will be available for a MSRP $599.99. The
EX-P700 features a 4X optical zoom (coupled with 4X digital zoom), combined
with a large 2.0-inch LCD screen. The camera has a claimed start-up time of
approximately 2.0 seconds and a 0.01 second release time lag. The EX-P700 also
features a high speed continuous shooting function that can take 3 photos per
second up to 5 photos. New features include Flash Assist, which operates during
flash photography to compensate for underexposure in areas which are not reached
by flash and Auto Macro, which automatically switches between Macro mode and
AF mode. One of the most interesting features is what Casio calls Business Shot,
which compensates for photos taken at an angle and records them as though taken
from straight ahead. While exposure, white balance and focus position are quickly
set with a single press of the shutter, the multi-bracketing feature enables
a variety of shots with different color effects to be taken in combination with
the rapid shooting function.

SanDisk Corporation will sponsor the Red Sea International Underwater Photo competition
in Eliat, Israel on April 24 -- 29. The contest is already attracting photographers
from all over the world, representing Denmark, Egypt, France, Germany, Israel,
Italy, Hungary, Poland, Philippines, Russia, Spain, Switzerland, Sweden, and the
USA.



The participating underwater photographers will have three days to shoot their
photographs before the submission deadline. In order to get the best shots, divers
usually dive to about 100 feet. The photographers are restricted to only 25 minutes
of shooting time per dive due to water pressure and air supply constraints. There
is no room for error. Fast read and write speeds with their digital film cards
as well as reliable, high capacity storage are needed because while submerged,
changing or replacing flash film cards is impossible and every shot taken is critical.




"The competition is the ideal platform to highlight the superior capabilities
of SanDisk Extreme™ III cards," said Tanya Chuang, SanDisk senior
retail product marketing manager. "SanDisk's professional photography
line is designed specifically for the market's need for high-speed flash
memory storage for the high-performance digital single lens reflex (SLR) cameras
that will be used in the competition. SanDisk Extreme III CompactFlash cards,
which range in capacity between 1 and 8 gigabytes (GB), are among the world's
fastest cards, with minimum write and read speeds of 20 megabytes per second (MB/sec.)

Photographer and author Mikkel Aaland is the quintessential early adopter, always
one of the first to master new digital photography software--and to wring every
bit of functionality out of it in the process. Shortly after the public beta
release of Adobe (R) Lightroom (TM) software, a digital imaging workflow solution
for professional photographers, he devised the ultimate road test to put Lightroom
through its paces in the field: Adobe Lightroom Adventure 2006.



Aaland invited eleven acclaimed photographers to join him in Iceland, from July
28 to August 5, 2006. This intrepid crew--joined by three top Icelandic photographers--is
shooting by day and using Adobe Lightroom beta to import, select, develop, and
showcase their large volume of digital images each night. Adobe is represented
by four imaging specialists who will both shoot and assist other photographers
as they work with both the Lightroom and Photoshop applications. The journey
and a sampling of the resulting photographs are chronicled in the Lightroom
Adventure blog at http://digitalmedia.oreilly.com/adventure.
And Aaland is capturing the lessons learned in the field for his book on Adobe
Lightroom, to be published by O'Reilly Media in early 2007.



Premium sponsors for the Lightroom Adventure are Adobe, ExpoImaging, the Iceland
Tourist Board, Icelandair, Lowepro, and O'Reilly. Additional sponsors supporting
the event are Epson, Fosshotel, Graystone Travel, Hertz, the Oflun Group, SanDisk,
and SAS Radisson 1919 Hotel.



The photographers joining Aaland in Iceland for the Lightroom Adventure are:
