Today's cameras are microprocessors with lenses. Most of us know how
to change color, sharpness and contrast, and even ISO settings, for every frame
we shoot, but did you know that you can also change how your camera's
dials and buttons work? By using Custom Function settings you can alter the
function of all those dials and buttons and personalize them to the way you
work, or to each unique shooting situation. When the camera comes out of the
box it has certain "default" settings, those chosen by the camera
manufacturer. While there is a certain wisdom in the defaults, they are not
necessarily the best way for your style or shooting needs.

Sony's new mega-capacity Cyber-shot® DSC-T2 digital camera is an
8-megapixel model that features 4GB of internal memory and can store up to 40,000
VGA-quality photos or 1,000 8 megapixel pictures, eliminating the need to manage
multiple media cards. The camera's album folder makes it easy to organize
and access thousands of photos in-camera. Images can be viewed in chronological
order and displayed in a helpful calendar view. By installing the bundled Picture
Motion Browser software, you can also view images by events like birthdays or
Sunday BBQs.



The "sharemark" folder can store those photos and videos deemed
worthy for sharing beyond the camera onto the web. The T2 model is pre-loaded
with Sony PMB Portable software, a user-friendly application that automatically
runs when the device is connected to a compatible PC via the supplied USB cable.
The software lets you publish photos and videos directly to popular web sharing
sites, such as Crackle, Flickr, Photobucket, Shutterfly and YouTube.



The camera has a new look with a compact silver body; black LCD frame; and a
sliding lens cover available in blue, green, pink, white or black. The Sony
LCS-TWE carrying case is also available in the same colors to match the camera.
Its touch-panel LCD screen replaces small buttons with on-screen icons and a
user-friendly interface to make camera operation fast and simple. You can touch
the screen to select the subject you want to focus on (shooting mode) and where
you want to zoom in (playback mode).



Sony's distinctive "smile shutter" function makes capturing
informal portraits and family snapshots effortless. The function automatically
detects and captures a person smiling without the need to press the shutter.
If there are several people in the frame, you can select the primary subject
for the camera to watch by touching the screen. A sequence of up to six smiling
shots can be taken without the need to manually press the shutter.



Combined with such technologies as face detection, optical image stabilization
and high sensitivity (ISO 3200), the camera is equipped to capture life-like
holiday memories.



The T2 camera can be connected to the TV set via HD component cable or an HD
cradle (both sold separately). Equipped with a built-in slide show function,
the camera lets you view photos, complete with dynamic transitions choreographed
to your choice of programmed music clips or by adding your own.



The Cyber-shot DSC-T2 digital camera will ship in December for about $350. Additional
accessories will include batteries, travel chargers, sports packs and cases.
All can be purchased online at sonystyle.com, at Sony Style® retail stores
(www.sonystyle.com/retail),
and at authorized regional dealers.

Epson America, Inc. has introduced the Epson PowerLite S4 -- a multi-purpose
3LCD projector in the sub-$700 category. Designed for on-the-go presenters, classroom
instructors and home users, the Epson PowerLite S4 projects presentations and
virtually all other forms of video content in up to 1,800 ANSI lumens of brightness
and SVGA (800 x 600) native resolution. Priced at $699 (estimated street price),
this 5.7-pound projector is easily transportable and features Epson technologies
that are designed to make setup and shut-down procedures as quick and trouble-free
as possible.



The Epson PowerLite S4 is designed to help reduce pre-presentation jitters and
stress on end users with unique, time-saving setup and shutdown features. The
projector's power-on verification tone gives presenters immediate assurance
that their projector is running the moment they press the on/off button, and just
four seconds later, the projector already begins to display an image. In addition,
the Epson PowerLite S4 automatically recognizes and adapts to video signals coming
from virtually all types of computers and video devices. And upon conclusion of
a presentation, Epson's Instant Off feature saves presenters even more time
and reduces further hassles by enabling them to turn off, unplug and pack up the
projector immediately and safely without a cool-down period.



The Epson PowerLite S4's 170-watt lamp produces 1,800 ANSI lumens of brightness
for vibrant, clear viewing of big screen images, even in well-lit rooms. It also
offers seven selectable color modes that are pre-programmed and optimized to enhance
image quality when connected to various video devices. Depending on the selected
application, users can choose color modes such as presentation, theater, gaming,
and even a photo mode with black-and-white enhancement levels to show off highlights
in photographs.



Epson 3LCD technology is a solid-state optical engine that works without a moving
color wheel, resulting in accurate color registration, detailed video and data
images that are crisp and rainbow-free.



The Epson PowerLite S4 is now available through national retailers, pro audio/visual
dealers, mail order, and PC resellers. Epson's PowerLite projectors come
with a two-year limited warranty that includes three elite technical support services
-- two-year Epson PrivateLine availability, two-year Road Service Program
and two-year International Warranty. Through the PrivateLine, projector owners
can directly access an expedited support telephone line by using a phone card
that is included with the product.

unmatched richness and color accuracy, low noise, and striking
highlight and shadow detail. Its 3.5-inch (diagonal) screen is said to be the

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

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.
