Mamiya has introduced the new Mamiya Sekor Macro MF 120mm f/4 D Lens -- successor
to the popular Mamiya Macro MF 120mm f/4 Lens.



"The Mamiya 120mm f/4 macro lens is one of the sharpest lenses available
today," said Jeff Karp, Mamiya Product Marketing Manager, "and it
has already been critically corrected for digital imaging. But it needed an upgrade
to be fully compatible with the latest cameras, software and digital backs."



The primary upgrade of the new lens is related to digital communication with the
camera. Data transfer is now controlled by a 16-bit CPU instead of the previous
4-bit CPU.



The advantages of the new CPU are:

Rewritability: The new 16-bit CPU is rewritable and can be overwritten
with firmware upgrades that would be required for compatibility with future cameras
and digital backs.


Finer Lens Correction: Thanks to the bigger capacity of the CPU,
the new lens has more lens data. It is possible to apply finer lens-characteristic
corrections when using Mamiya's Digital Photostudio¨ software.



Fast, Reliable Communication: The new CPU enables faster and more reliable communication
with the camera body.



As its name suggests, the new D-series lens shows its true capabilities when shooting
with the Mamiya ZD Digital back and other high-end digital backs. However, it
is designed to be equally at home with film backs.



The new Mamiya Sekor Macro MF 120mm f/4 D Lens is compatible with the Mamiya 645AFD
ll camera and is available for immediate delivery.

participation in helping us build a final product that best serves photographers'
unique needs," said Dave Story, vice president of product development for
Digital Imaging at Adobe. "We will build upon the success of the public
beta program with the release of a Windows version this summer."



With its modular and task-based environment, Lightroom beta delivers tools for
a complete photography workflow. Leveraging industry-leading Adobe Camera Raw
3.4 technology, Lightroom now supports over 120 native raw file formats. New camera
models supported by this beta are Canon EOS 30D, Epson R-D1s, Leaf Aptus 65 and
Aptus 75, Olympus EVOLT E-330 and SP-320, Pentax *ist DL2 and Samsung GX-1S. Once
images are imported, they can be showcased via slideshows, complete with music,
as well as drop shadows, borders, Identity Plates and different colored backgrounds.

or changed based on the necessity and priority within digital photography workflows.

that runs on both Power PC and Intel Macs, is available for free download from
the Adobe Labs Web site at http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/lightroom.

Adobe Systems Incorporated(Nasdaq:ADBE) has announced that Adobe Photoshop(r)
Lightroom(tm) 1.0 software is now available for pre-order and is expected to
ship in mid-February 2007. Photoshop Lightroom enables professional photographers
to import, manage and present large volumes of digital photographs, helping
photographers spend more time behind the lens and less time at the computer.
With more than 500,000 photographers participating in the public beta program
over the last 12 months, Photoshop Lightroom now includes a wealth of innovative
features that streamline digital photography workflows. Recognizing the photography
community for their efforts, Adobe is offering Photoshop Lightroom at a special
introductory price of US $199 through April 30, 2007 at the Adobe Store. Photoshop
Lightroom will later sell for an estimated street price of US $299.



Photoshop Lightroom includes new functionality added since beta 4.1, with significant
changes to the Library and Develop modules complementing improvements to the
Slideshow, Print and Web components. While in the Library module, new advanced
keywording tools help photographers filter through large collections, and an
improved import dialogue with more flexible file handling allows more choice
when determining file location. The new Key Metadata Browser provides quick
access to key information tags with an improved ranking and rating system that
now incorporates color labels and a pick/reject system that sorts and locates
photographs faster than ever. New to the Develop module, Virtual Copies and
Snapshot tools help present multiple versions of the same image, providing the
most choice to clients without the confusion of saving separate physical versions.
Additional tools added include a Hue, Saturation and Luminance targeted adjustment
tool for precise and intuitive image edits. Clone and Healing features provide
non-destructive edits to eliminate sensor dust across one or many images.



Photoshop Lightroom leverages Adobe Camera Raw technology and supports over
150 native raw file formats, in addition to JPEG and TIFF, bringing raw conversion
into a single workflow experience. The latest camera models supported include
the Nikon D40 and D80 and the Pentax K10D. This support means that photographers
can use Lightroom with even the newest cameras on the market, knowing that the
image files will be recognized today and in the future. Upon import, files can
be converted to the Digital Negative specification (DNG) or renamed and segmented
by folder or date. DNG is an industry-wide initiative to create a universal
file format for solving workflow and archiving issues. It aims to eliminate
barriers to new camera adoption while giving professional photographers the
confidence that their digital body of work is securely archived and will remain
accessible as digital imaging technology evolves.
