Manfrotto is introducing the new and improved 685B NeoTec Deluxe Monopod with
four new features including a safety lever, foot pedal, leg warmer and suction
cup foot. From the NeoTec line of Pro Photo Supports, the 685B is built around
an innovative self-regulating mechanism inside the leg that allows the user
to quickly and easily extend each leg to the desired height by simply pulling
downwards. There are no locks, knobs or levers of any kind to contend with.
Once the leg is extended into position, NeoTec's patented internal mechanism
automatically locks it there by pushing outwards on the tubing, exerting more
locking power and further stabilizing the tripod as additional weight is added.




The 685B system features a new safety lever that prevents accidental deployment
of the locking release mechanism. To close the monopod, the safety lever must
be activated, which then allows the grip action handle to be depressed. The
lever is simple to operate while still maintaining the one-handed closing operation.




The updated monopod also features a lightweight rubber foot pedal to make opening
or closing the 685B simple, and a protective leg warmer on the bottom leg section
to provide protection against the elements and a comfortable grip. Also, the
685B includes a suction cup foot for extra ground support and increased grip.



The 685B monopod is designed for support with unprecedented speed. The 685B
can fully extend to 166 cm / 65 inches and collapse to 71 cm / 28 inches. It
has the capability of supporting payloads up to 8 kg / 18 pounds and features
the same "upside down" leg construction, further ensuring its durability
and reliability in all environments.

GretagMacbeth has announced an all-new, high-end professional version of its
award-winning Eye-One Display 2 monitor calibration solution. Eye-One Display
2 is said to set a new standard, delivering unparalleled functionality for high-end
professional results. At the same time, GretagMacbeth is pleased to announce
the new Eye-One Display LT for budget conscious professionals just getting started
with color management.



Both of the new Eye-One Display solutions feature the professional Eye-One Display
measurement device. The new functionality in the Eye-One solutions is a result
of the new Eye-One Match 3.6 software that is included with the devices, making
it ideal for both new users as well as existing Eye-One Display 2 and Eye-One
Pro users who want to gain more from their investment.



Eye-One Display 2 provides enhanced Workgroup Match capabilities for anyone
who needs to match multiple monitors - either within their own studio or in
a collaborative production environment including their customers and suppliers
- to ensure consistent on-screen color viewing throughout the production workflow.
Calibration parameters can be extracted from an existing GretagMacbeth monitor
profile and used as a baseline for all of the monitors in a workgroup - thus
ensuring the highest level of consistency from monitor to monitor. Users can
also define custom gamma, white point and luminance settings for their profiles
to meet their exact requirements.



With Eye-One Display 2, users can utilize the Ambient Check and Match functions
to take precise measurements of the ambient light in their environment to ensure
that their standard viewing conditions remain consistent - ideal for professional
designers and photographers who want an accurate match between their light box
and their monitor. And now users can incorporate ambient light data into their
profiles for a better correlation between their monitor and studio or any other
viewing conditions, such as a gallery where their images will be displayed.




Eye-One Display 2 also provides a number of new tools to help speed the profiling
process and help users evaluate the quality of their profiles and monitor, including
Push-Button Calibration, a fully automatic calibration for popular monitors,
a before and after image for assessing profile quality, as well as Validation
- monitor trend data which helps users track the overall performance of their
monitors. Current Eye-One Display 2 owners can benefit from all the new Eye-One
Display 2 enhancements by simply downloading the new Eye-One Match 3.6 software.



The new Eye-One Display LT solution provides the perfect entry point for professionals
who are investing in monitor calibration for the first time. It enables a basic
set of functionality within the new version of Eye-One Match 3.6 that provides
users with the possibility to calibrate their monitors and adjust the color
on-screen with a few simple clicks. Features include push-button monitor calibration,
profile creation using predefined gamma and white point settings, the ability
to check ambient light conditions and a before and after image for assessing
profile quality. If a user wants to upgrade their Eye-One Display LT to an Eye-One
Display 2, they can do so at any time simply by purchasing a license code to
enable the full Eye-One Match 3.6 functionality.



Pricing, Availability, Compatibility and Upgrades

The new Eye-One Display 2 will continue to have a list price of $249. Eye-One
Display LT is list priced at $169. Both products are compatible with Mac OS
X (10.3 or higher) and Windows 2000, XP and x64. Current owners of Eye-One Display
2 and Eye-One Pro solutions (including Eye-One Design, Eye-One Photo, etc.)
can download the new Eye-One Match 3.6 software for FREE from gretagmacbeth.com.

Argraph Corporation has introduced Digital High Grade (DHG) Filters, the first
optical filters designed specifically for digital cameras and lenses. Marumi
Optical Company of Japan has designed the DGH range of lens filters to eliminate
the flare and ghosting prevalent when the CCD or CMOS chips in digital cameras
convert light into electrical signals. A newly developed ultra-low reflection
coating increases light transmission. In addition the lens' outer rim
is blackened to minimize internal reflection. The satin smooth, ultra thin,
matte-black metal filter frame further minimizes refection. The new Marumi DHG
filters are available in UV, Circular Polarizer, Star-Cross, Neutral Density-8
and Soft Fantasy varieties, and come in standard metric sizes from 49mm-82mm.
There is also a Macro +3 close up filter available in sizes from 49mm-77mm.
