Olympus has given the SP-570 UZ -- the world's most powerful ultra
zoom digital camera -- an extreme makeover by creating the new SP-565 Ultra
Zoom, a smaller and lighter version with the same 20x wide-angle telephoto zoom
lens (26-520mm equivalent.) The camera's enhanced Face Detection can now
track up to 16 faces within the frame and optimize exposure even when subjects
are moving. In addition, the SP-565 UZ ensures sharp, brilliant images with
a host of other features:

Dual Image Stabilization combines the benefits of Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization
and Digital Image Stabilization to compensate for both camera shake and moving
subjects, helping to create beautiful, virtually blur-free images in any situation.

BosStrap’s out-of-the-box engineering solved many of the inherent disadvantages of across-the-shoulder camera straps. Visually BosStrap stands out because it does not require a cumbersome and roaming shoulder pad for a gear laden photographer to have all-day comfort.

BosStrap’s unique approach relies on a 1-1/2” wide nylon belt to distribute the weight of the camera on your shoulder, and a BosTail that remains attached to the camera. A TriggerLoc on the BosStrap attaches to a metal ring on the BosTail. In use the camera slides smoothly up to your eye; at rest the camera sits at your hip. BosStraps use the left camera strap lug as an attachment point which is safer than attaching to the tripod socket. Since there is no screw to remove from the tripod socket, moving between hand-held shooting and a tripod is a breeze. Professional photographers, who tested the BosStrap system under studio and field conditions, give it exceptionally high reviews. BosStrap is entirely made with USA parts and labor. The BosStrap System includes the BosStrap and one BosTail for $39.95. For your backup cameras, a BosStrap Bundle includes one BosStrap and two BosTails for $45.90. BosTails are also available separately for $6.95 each.

Sinar
Bron Imaging has announced the latest View Camera from the award winning Swiss
manufacturer, Sinar AG. The Limited Edition Sinar x3 view camera is designed to
help photographers work faster and more accurately. It features the best from
the Sinar View Camera line, including Sinar Gear Driven Movements, the smooth,
self-arresting precision drives and it's based on asymmetric tilts and swings.
The x3 features the unique Sinar focusing technique. The built-in scales permit
accurate determination of depth of field, tilt and swing angles, which systematically
lead to perfect focusing without the camera distracting from the creative task.
Like the Sinar p3 studio camera, it features integrated contacts and electrical
bellows, which makes it possible to control the electronic between-the-lens shutters
of Sinaron Digital CMV lenses without additional cables. When used with any Sinar
digitalback, the sharpness can be focused with pixel accuracy via "Live Video."

Leica Camera AG has announced that it will provide a free firmware update for
the LEICA DIGILUX 3 on its website www.leica-camera.com.
The new firmware for the LEICA DIGILUX 3 optimizes the functionality of the
camera across many applications. This will include additional exposure functions
and will, for the first time, offer a "Mode 3" for optical stabilization.
Mode 3 will further compensate and correct longitudinal camera movement. This
mode is ideal for panning, a method of taking photographs where the camera follows
a moving object.



Version 2.0 will also include a new mode that facilitates the viewing of the
LCD monitor during use of the LiveView function. This setting will assist the
photographer when the camera is held in a position close to ground level. Further
improvements include the "Auto Review" setting, a Replay Zoom, easier
accessibility to the ISO setting in Auto Exposure (AE) mode, as well as further
improvements to camera operation and user interface.



Detailed information on the firmware update for the LEICA DIGILUX 3 will be
available at www.leica-camera.com in the Photography/D-System/Digilux 3 section
beginning in mid June 2007.

Freestyle Photographic Supplies has announced that it has finalized an agreement
with Fotokemika-Nova, of Samobor, Croatia, officially naming Freestyle the exclusive
United States distributor of Efke-brand films and Varycon-brand photographic papers.
Efke B&W films (a formulation previously branded as 'ADOX'), and Varycon B&W
papers, have filled a custom niche position with the creative fine-art photographic
community in the US market for many years.



Freestyle is excited to have the opportunity to make the Fotokemika product-lines
more widely available in the US. "Many in the industry have proclaimed the
demise of film and the darkroom - propaganda with which Freestyle and our manufacturing
partners - and our customers - strongly disagree. We are committed to continue
taking a proactive position in ensuring the future availability of as many traditional
photographic products as possible. We believe that this partnership further solidifies
that commitment," comments Gerald H. Karmele, Freestyle's President and Chief
Operating Officer.

special initiative in support of ultra large format (ULF) photographers. In

manufacturers and stocking dealers. However, to help ULF users overcome this
limited availability, as well as the need to purchase a minimum order quantity,
Ilford Photo has revealed it is running a two month ULF product ordering window.
