PictoColor announces the release of CorrectPhoto 3.1, its popular, easy to use
digital photo editor. CorrectPhoto 3.1 features PictoColor's OneClick Color technology
that instantly gives every digital photo the color of life or creates a stunning
black and white or sepia tone picture. With just one click, anyone can remove
an unwanted color cast, improve the exposure and increase the vibrancy of all
of their digital pictures. And, with a single click a color photo can be instantly
turned into black and white or sepia tone picture.



Plus, with its collection of other essential photo tools such as rotation, cropping,
cropping to standard print sizes, resizing, removing red-eye, and sharpening,
CorrectPhoto helps users turn average snapshots into great photos in seconds.




CorrectPhoto takes the guess work out of color correction with PictoColor's OneClick
Color technology, the point-and-click color technology that really works. OneClick
Color automatically corrects the white balance, exposure, and saturation. In addition
to its automatic color correction capabilities, CorrectPhoto provides separate
controls for manually adjusting brightness and contrast, independently adjusting
shadows and highlights, and quickly adjusting the saturation. New to version 3.1
is the ability to create stunning black and white and sepia tone photos with a
single mouse click. Designed for Windows XP and Vista users, CorrectPhoto's built
in Windows Explorer provides direct access to Windows file management system for
easy photo management and archiving



CorrectPhoto with ImageTitler may be purchased at http://www.correctphoto.com
for $39.95 as a software download. A free trial version of CorrectPhoto 3.1 is
available.

shooting rate to 8 frames per second (up to 35 consecutive JPEGs or 26 NEFs)

The Sigma
Corporation is pleased to announce the launch of the new 10mm F2.8 EX DC Fisheye
HSM lens. This autofocus fisheye lens is designed for use with digital SLR cameras
equipped with APS-C size image sensors. The Nikon version produces a diagonal
angle of view of 180°; 154° for Sigma; 167° for Canon. The diagonal
field of view of this fisheye lens produces striking images with exaggerated perspective
and distortion. The minimum focusing distance of 13.5cm/5.3inch, and maximum magnification
1:3.3 allows subjects to be as close as 1.8cm/0.7inch from the lens' front
element. This close focusing capability allows close-up photography and also it
is possible to make use of large depth of field that covers wide range of subjects.
The Integral hood blocks out extraneous light and the Super Multi-Layer Coating
minimizes flare and ghosting, creating superior image quality. The HSM--Hyper
Sonic Moto--ensures fast and quiet autofocusing and allows full-time manual focus
override by rotation of the focus ring. This lens is supplied with a gelatin filter
holder at the rear, allowing the use of gelatin filters.

Shutterbug and Panasonic are happy to announce the winner of our "Inspirations"
Photo Contest, conducted on the web site Galleries at www.shutterbug.com. Jim
Semonik, who resides in central New Jersey, submitted his image and won the
votes of judges and web commentators alike. Jim's shot was taken in Ft.
Lauderdale, Florida. Said Jim, "I saw the boat and took about 60 pictures
of it over two mornings -- the first day was overcast the second was perfect.
I still have 59 other shots from every possible angle."



As
to his growing love of photography, Jim said, "I had an interest in photography
back in the `70s but marriage, daughters (who had a nasty habit of wanting
to eat!) put hobbies on hold. Digital rekindled my creative spirit and I have
been trying to improve. I started with an HP 2MP camera went to a Fuji 3MP,
then 6 MP and finally took the plunge on a Nikon D50. The kids are grown now
and I love to travel. I get to see some interesting places because of my job
but I fell in love with the Southwest and the Islands. It's probably that
mid-life Jimmy Buffett deal!"

Kingston Technology Company, Inc.will feature renowned Brazilian photographer
Claudio Edinger on its Icons of Photography Web site. Frequently referred to
as the "Master of the Essays" for his natural ability to tell a
complete and detailed story through photographs, Edinger will share some of
the techniques he feels have made him successful and believes can be applied
to anyone. Edinger will also share his thoughts on digital imaging and how it
has changed his professional career--becoming an essential and exclusive part
of his equipment lineup.



This month, Edinger shares some of his thoughts, philosophies and shooting styles
which allow him to separate his commercial photography from the journalism he
finds himself doing for TIME Magazine and other news publications.



"For my personal work," said Edinger, "I like to photograph
small universes, where the human element is special, even exceptional and I
can stop and talk to the people. With my work, I try to understand what the
human being is, why we are here, and mainly, who I am. The journalistic pictures,
on the other hand, require agility and quickness, especially with specific assignments."



"Digital imaging has changed the way I shoot and the way I see,"
Edinger continued. "I rely on different things today, including my Kingston
media cards. When I was shooting film, I had a favorite type like many photographers.
Media cards today are no different. It really comes down to who you trust so
you can concentrate on the art."



"When it comes to equipment, the real key is what you feel comfortable
using and trust to help you get the job done," said Jaja Lin, Flash memory
marketing manager, Kingston. "Kingston's reputation and longstanding
heritage as a worldwide leader and provider of `everything memory'
has become the basis for the relationship with world class photographers we
enjoy today. It is a great honor to be associated with these photographers--and
a great responsibility. And certainly one we don't take lightly,"
added Lin.



Born in Rio de Janeiro and raised in Sao Paulo, Edinger moved to New York when
he was 24 years old. After 30 years of admiring Rio, Edinger released the book
"Rio," nominated as one of the best of the year by Photo District
News in 2001 and American Photo magazine in 2003. At that time, Edinger defined
the photo essay as, "An attempt of picking up the dream, the utopia, that
place where, as the chamber of secret of each one of us, where we go to reload
ourselves to continue. The place where we get undressed and find ideally the
fraternity and the sameness: the beach."



Every month Kingston spotlights a world-class photographer who provides helpful
tips and interesting anecdotes for taking better pictures. Photographers previously
featured at Kingston.com include Colin Finlay, Douglas Kirkland, Barbara Bordnick,
Chris Rainier, Peter Read Miller, Gerd Ludwig and Harry Benson. These accomplished
Icons of Photography deliver useful suggestions that photo enthusiasts at all
levels can apply to their own photography as they learn to make digital imaging
a natural part of their workflow, or learn a unique process or trick the Icon
has provided to give them a competitive edge.



Kingston will introduce a new photographer with their featured photographic
tip, gallery of images, calendar of events and biography around the 15th of
each month. Photographers and consumers can read the latest tips and view images
by visiting http://www.kingston.com/digitalmedia/iop

In a sad but not totally unexpected development, Konica Minolta has announced
its withdrawal from the camera business, effective March 31. Despite its long-time
expertise in optics and electronics, Konica Minolta did not develop its own
image sensor technologies--a fact that the company said made it increasingly
difficult to offer competitive photographic products in a digital age.

Tenba's Air Case line of lightweight, shippable equipment transport cases
has been enhanced by the introduction of an exclusive Datapanel identification
system that facilitates faster, easier and more reliable shipping, tracking,
tracing and identification. The new feature will be supplied as standard equipment
on those Air Case models and sizes typically used for equipment shipping, rental
houses and similar applications. The Datapanel consists of a durable, rubberized
assembly secured to the case with military-grade, seatbelt-type webbing and
heavily reinforced nylon stitching. Massive #10 YKK zippers on both sides pull
down from beneath a protective Velcro closure flap to open the panel and access
its features. The most prominent of these features is a large, clear vinyl shipping
window that securely holds, protects and clearly presents a standard FedEx or
UPS-type waybill, eliminating the need to tape or otherwise fasten shipping
documents to the case. As a result, preparation time is reduced, the need for
messy and unreliable tape is eliminated, documents are far more secure, and
the overall appearance and presentation of the case is cleaner and more professional.
The shipping window itself is instantly user-replaceable if needed, but--like
the entire Datapanel assembly-- is built to withstand the rigors of regular
shipping, baggage handling and long-term professional use.
