Several new dye sub printers have been recently announced. These printers employ
thermal transfer technology--they apply heat to a special ink ribbon to produce
colored gas that forms an image on special media. All provide approximately
300dpi resolution, plenty for continuous tone output.



High Speed Pro Printers

Kodak recently introduced two new roll-fed thermal transfer 300dpi Professional
models (with automatic cutters) that generate high quality output for use as
proofs or for immediate sale. Both employ Ektatherm media said to produce prints
that will "last a lifetime". An archival rating has not yet been
published. (They require a computer running Windows 2000 or XP; Mac support
is not available at this time.) The Professional 6850 Digital Photo Printer
is lightning fast. It can deliver 6x8-inch glossies in 15 seconds or 4x6's
in a mere 4 seconds -- hundreds of such photos in a series (without operator
intervention) when high volume is required. (List price $2900; cost per print
not stated; available in August 2005.)

Kingston Technology Company, Inc. announced it has posted answers to a new series
of questions submitted by professional and aspiring photographers on its Ask the
Icon interactive feature on the `Icons of Photography' microsite at
www.kingston.com/iop.



"Kingston's `Icons of Photography' continues to generate
interest from photographers worldwide who have specific questions to ask of some
of the world's most-respected photographers," said Jaja Lin, Flash
memory marketing manager, Kingston. "Providing a platform for sharing thoughts
and ideas was the impetus for creating the `Icons of Photography'
program and we're pleased to see that consumers and pros alike are utilizing
this resource to forward their own careers and creative interests," added
Lin.



Questions submitted by photographers from Malaysia, Zimbabwe, Europe and the U.S.
were addressed by Kingston's Icons including Harry Benson, Colin Finlay,
Gerd Ludwig and Peter Read Miller. The Icons offered sage advice on topics including
shooting in extreme conditions, how a publication captures events from multiple
angles and finding work as a photographer.



"It is encouraging to see how many people who really want to learn more
about photography and take their work to the next level," said Peter Read
Miller, Sports Illustrated photographer who recently photographed the Super Bowl
and is preparing for the 2008 Summer Olympics. "Consumers are looking at
their photography as a form of personal expression and that is always a good thing,"
Miller added.

Bowens has launched a unique, affordable ringflash, the lightweight Ringlite
Converter. Priced at $480.00, this innovative converter is said to make ringflash-style
photography affordable. Said Mark Aherne, Bowens technical director, "Traditional
ringflash generally comprises flash tubes, cable and a powerpack, so the full
kit required is quite unwieldy and expensive. We built the converter and followed
up with associated bracketry to ensure the unit would be suitable for most cameras
on the market. We have created an attachment which allows photographers to convert
their standard Bowens strobe lights to produce ringflash-style light. Using
this new converter photographers can simply put the camera lens through the
centre of the light source. This creates a softer, wholesome surrounding light
around the lens which reduces shadows. It can also create shadowing around the
outline of the subject so users can work with a specific photographic effect.
The additional benefit of the converter is its `backwards capability'.
Photographers can take a standard Bowens product going back many years and use
it - as long as it has an S-Type adaptor. This will bring additional cost benefits
to our customers."
