The Mamiya DL28 Digital Camera System offers 28 Megapixels with a large
sensor with a pixel size of 7.2 microns, producing images with
unmatched richness and color accuracy, low noise, and striking
highlight and shadow detail. Its 3.5-inch (diagonal) screen is said to be the
largest in the industry and offers a bright, high-contrast touch
screen that is ideal for outdoor or indoor work.
The DL28 marries the professionally proven Mamiya camera system to the
innovative 28 megapixel Aptus-II 6 Digital Back from Leaf - a system
capable of unrivaled performance, image quality and value. The 645AFD
III body has a new coreless motor for faster, more accurate
autofocusing and an enhanced interface system that provides total
communication between the camera, lens and digital back. The 645AFD
III and Leaf Aptus-II 6 Digital Back work as an integral unit so
you'll never miss the action.

With 16-bit capture, 12 stop dynamic range and an ISO range of 50-800,
the Mamiya DL28 is a full featured professional digital solution that
allows photographers to focus on creating the image and not worrying
about the technology. The 28 MP back provides raw files of 53Mb, and
16 bit TIFF files in excess of 159 Mb - ensuring that you'll have the
information needed for virtually any size reproduction.

Compact flash media storage makes it easy to shoot untethered on
location or in the studio. You can also use the included firewire
cable and Leaf Capture 11.2 software to shoot directly to your
computer. And the latest Leaf Capture software allows other people -
in the field or in the studio - to view your creativity on their
iPhones as you continue shooting!

The Mamiya DL28 will be available November 2008.
MAP price is $14,999.

Remote viewing and shutter release capability opens up a host of picture opportunities, from working high atop camera platforms from ground level to very low level shooting without muddying your clothes (given your camera lacks an articulating monitor) to placing your camera in spots and being able to view and shoot without your being right behind the viewfinder. Many photographers routinely work with radio triggers for flash, especially in studio environments where the lights are set in position and photographer and model or subject move. The Hahnel Inspire adds to the mix with remote shutter release and viewing in one.

Here in this Hahnel supplied illustration you get a good idea of the way the unit works, setting up a signal relationship for both remote viewing and shutter release.

Adobe Systems Incorporated has announced Adobe Photoshop CS2. Available as a stand-alone
software application or as a key component of Adobe Creative Suite2, Photoshop
CS2 integrates a new set of intuitive tools, including an enhanced Spot Healing
Brush, for handling common photographic problems such as blemishes, red-eye, noise,
blurring and lens distortion. Smart Objects allow users to scale and transform
images and vector illustrations without losing image quality -- as well as
create linked duplicates of embedded graphics -- so that a single edit updates
across multiple iterations. Other new tools include Vanishing Point and Image
Warping. Vanishing Point cuts tedious graphic and photo retouching tasks by allowing
users to clone, paint and transform image objects while retaining visual perspective.
Reinventing workflows such as product packaging development, Image Warping makes
it easy to fold, stretch, pull, twist and wrap an image into shape by selecting
an on-demand preset or dragging custom control points.

Until recently, Lexmark printers were primarily multi-purpose or industrial
machines but their latest models are dedicated to photo printing. Based on a
three year R&D effort, the P915 Home Photo Printer and P6250 Photo Center
boast some impressive features. These include high resolution, a full slate
of direct printing amenities, software for automatic print enhancement plus
new archival inks for print permanence. The two printers are identical in most
respects but the P6250 Photo Center is larger because it includes a significant
extra, a built-in flatbed scanner.

Delkin Devices announced three new innovative additions to their line of AA battery
products - designed specifically with the digital photographer in mind. New to
Delkin's "Delkin Power" product line are three products that use the
newest in battery technology. Included in the new lineup are Extended Power 2900mAh
Rechargeable AA battery cells, a new AA/AAA International Quick Charger, and Ready-to-Use
Rechargeable AA battery cells that combine the benefits of single-use alkaline
cells with rechargeable cells.



The Ready-to-Use Rechargeable AA batteries combine all of the benefits of a rechargeable
with the benefits of a single use alkaline cell. Delkin's AA Ready-to-Use batteries
use technology that is said to allow them to hold their charge better than any
standard rechargeableThe batteries are environmentally friendly and can be charged
and recharged over 800 times then recycled at the end of their lifespan.



For those that are interested in the highest mAh rating available, Delkin's new
Extended Power 2900mAh Rechargeable AA batteries cater to high drain devices that
use a lot of power at one time, such as digital cameras that boast large LCD displays
with a powerful flash. The new Extended Power 2900mAh Rechargeable AA's are said
to offer more power to drive those high drain LCD screens and flash units. With
any rechargeable battery there always comes time for the need to recharge, so
Delkin decided to offer a new AA battery charger that would fulfill all of the
requirements of today's busy photographer. The AA/AAA International Quick Charger
uses four charging circuits compared to the one or two that most chargers use
today. This allows each battery to be individually monitored by the charger and
by the user, which enables a more adequate and longer lasting charge and drastically
increases safety. It also uses multiple safety features to protect against overcharge,
excessive heat and possible short circuiting, and uses a methodical charge rate
based on the quantity of cells being charged to properly condition and retain
the lifespan of the battery while charging it in a reasonable amount of time.
What's more, the AA/AA International Quick Charger is travel friendly with automatic
110V/220V switching and international plug options, with the US version having
a foldable power plug for easy packing. Charge time depends on the mAh rating
of the cells being charged, as well as the amount of cells being charged at one
time, but one 2900mAh cell will be fully charged in about 80 minutes.



All Delkin Power products are protected by the company's two year warranty and
can be found in camera stores worldwide, or at the company's website at www.delkin.com.
The Extended Power AA batteries as well as the Ready to Use AA batteries can be
purchased in packages of four and are priced at $16.99 and $17.99 respectively.
The AA/AAA International Quick Charger comes packaged with four of the Extended
Power AA batteries and is priced at $44.99.
