While film news here will be scant, Kodak did introduce two new color negative
films, actually updates on their professional Portra emulsions in the ISO 100
and 400 speeds. There are four in all, with two being NC ("natural color")
and two being VC ("vivid color.") The retouching layer has been eliminated
from the back side of the film, making them eminently more scannable. Kodak says
that it has incorporated all their latest research into these films making them
finer grain, sharper and with better color and dynamic range than films in the
past. True, if there's one thing film has over digital it is the ability
to handle a wider exposure range, especially in the highlight values.

As part of its campaign to `Defend the Darkroom', Ilford Photo
- the monochrome brand of Harman technology Limited -- has announced a
special initiative in support of ultra large format (ULF) photographers. In
an increasingly digital world, these photographers can find it difficult to

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.

Epson America Inc. has announced the the Epson PowerLite 76c. Featuring up to
2,000 ANSI lumens of brightness with XGA native resolution (1,024 x 768) in a
5.7-pound design, the PowerLite 76c is slated to sell for $1,099 (estimated street
price.) Driven by Epson's 3LCD technology, a three-chip engine design that
projects continuous color and vibrant images, the PowerLite 76c is said to display
a wide color gamut with excellent brightness and edge-to-edge consistency. In
addition, the PowerLite 76c comes with a new Instant OffTM feature for immediate
shutdown of the projector. Epson has also equipped the PowerLite 76c with new
lamp technology, E-TORL (Epson Twin Optimized Reflection Lamp), to deliver what
is said to be a superior level of brightness in a compact form factor. E-TORL
efficiently gathers and projects light to reduce light leakage and diffraction.



To get presentations up and running quickly and smoothly, the PowerLite 76c takes
only four seconds between pressing the power button and projection of the start-up
screen. And, with Epson's exclusive Instant Off feature, no cool down time
is necessary. Users can simply press the power button and unplug the power cable
immediately at the end of their presentation.



For added control, the PowerLite 76c features a "Source Search" button
which automatically identifies and displays the connected inputs and changes instantly
between sources. A 1.2x optical zoom lens enables users to easily adjust the display
size to project large images from relatively short throw distances, resulting
in a wide range of set-up possibilities. The unit's 30-degree keystone correction
ensures a high-quality display, even in less-than-ideal environments. Depending
on the presenting environment, the PowerLite 76c allows users to choose a 1,500
ANSI lumens "Low Brightness" mode to increase lamp life.



The included remote control enables PowerPoint and Keynote presentation slides
to be advanced and manipulated without using a PC. The projector also offers several
useful features for ceiling-mount projection, including top-side access for easy
lamp replacement, front-side access for air-filter replacement, easy switch to
ceiling-mount mode (inverted picture) via the remote control, and direct power-on
that is activated automatically when a room's power source is switched on.




The Epson PowerLite 76c will be available through authorized pro audio/visual,
national distribution, catalog, and direct PC dealers in October 2005. Epson's
PowerLite projectors come with a two-year limited warranty that includes three
elite technical support services -- two-year Epson PrivateLine™ availability,
two-year Road Service Program and two-year International Warranty. Through the
PrivateLine, projector owners can directly access an expedited support telephone
line (typically in about one minute) by using a phone card that is included with
the product.

The Fujifilm Finepix 200 EXR (list: $599; street, under $500) sports a 12 megapixel sensor and a 14.3X optical zoom lens that is equivalent to 30.5-436mm (!) It takes stills and high-quality video and has a built in mic that delivers quality sound without much if any whirring from the camera. Having that much zoom capability means that you never will want on the tele side with this integral lens camera, and even 30mm is not bad on the wide side.

Looking like a small D-SLR with a moderate zoom lens, the S200EXR actually sports a 30.5-436mm optical zoom, an incredible range in a lens this small, though smaller sensor size is part of the reason they could attain the smaller size.
