Olympus, sponsor of the US Open and the Olympus US Open Series, announces its
second annual national sweepstakes that will send five winners and their guests
on the trip of a lifetime to the 2008 US Open Tennis Championships in Flushing
Meadows, New York. Winners will receive a weekend getaway August 29-31, 2008,
which will include hotel, airfare, spending money and two tickets to the Grand
Slam tennis tournament. They will also be granted exclusive access to locations
normally limited to professional photographers where they can capture the on-court
and behind-the-scenes drama.



Starting in the Olympus luxury suite located in Arthur Ashe Stadium at the USTA
Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, winners will be coached by an award-winning
photographer, an Olympus Visionary, on best techniques for shooting nonstop tennis
action. They will have access to the photographers' lounge and other elite
locations, to capture images from a vantage point only the pros typically have.
The winners' ultimate photo experience will be in the exclusive Olympus
photo pit, shooting elbow-to-elbow with professional photographers and capturing
amazing up-close images of the tournament action with Olympus E-System digital
single lens reflex (DSLR) cameras.



Consumers purchasing an Olympus camera between May 13 and July 18, 2008 may register
to win by completing a registration form at participating retail locations, entering

The 8GB SanDisk Ultra II CompactFlash card satisfies the need of those using
high-megapixel digital SLRs, those producing large files with every shot. Ultra
II cards offer a minimum sustained write speed of 9MB/sec and a read speed of
10MB/sec. SanDisk also produces their Extreme III CompactFlash lineup, which
has about double the read/write speed, but because the Extreme III uses a different
type of NAND flash memory the maximum capacity of that lineup is 4GB. In tests
with a variety of digital SLRs the Ultra II performed flawlessly, and it sure
was handy having that amount of memory on trips where lots of images were made
during the day's shoot. For Raw images with an 8MP camera we could get
almost 600 images on a card. Retail price for the 8GB card is $999.99, about
what a 1GB CompactFlash card cost three years ago.

In olden times printmakers toiling in the darkroom had a fair sampling of paper
surfaces from which to choose, as well as paper "tones" that ranged
from warm to cool, depending on the paper characteristics modified by the developer
used. Alas, those days are past, with less and less surfaces available. Now,
however, the choice in paper surfaces and weights has returned, albeit in the
form of inkjet papers for output using both pigment and dye based inks. Today,
the proliferation of inkjet paper brands speaks to the growing market for these
products and provides the photographer with perhaps even more possibilities
than even was available in the heyday of the chemical darkroom arts.

If you've ever been walking down the street and a picture caught your
eye, but had no camera to capture the moment, then the small, shirt-pocket size
digicams might just be item you're seeking. A number of companies, including
Pentax, Casio and Minolta have already introduced such models, each with their
own unique feature sets. Now, Contax, a name renowned for exquisite cameras
and excellent lenses, has jumped into the fray with their own version, the U4R,
a 4-megapixel camera sporting a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar T* lens. Those familiar
with the amazing image clarity of this line of lenses will immediately recognize
the name; those unfamiliar with it can be assured that it is a legendary name
in optics. The camera has just under a 3x optical zoom lens, delivering the
equivalent of 38-115mm in 35mm format. There's also a digital zoom if
you need it, delivering over 400mm, but as with many digital zooms it's
really a crop into the frame, and will not deliver the quality of the prime
optics.
