Adobe Systems Incorporated today announced an update to the public beta of Adobe
Photoshop Lightroom software at the Photokina tradeshow in Cologne, Germany. Available
immediately for download from Adobe Labs (http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/lightroom),
this update unites the product feature set for Windows and Macintosh platforms,
giving professional photographers a new way to import, manage and showcase large
volumes of digital photographs. More than 325,000 people have opted to try Lightroom
during the beta period and feedback has been fueled by over 3,400 of them sharing
input in Adobe online forums. The final version of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is
expected to ship in early 2007.



The final branding of the software, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, confirms its place
within the Photoshop family, a line of products that meet the needs of novice
snapshooters, photo hobbyists and a diverse set of professional customers.



Adobe Photoshop Lightroom beta 4.0 offers improved digital photography workflow
tools, including a precision white balance selection option and a more streamlined
and elegant user interface experience with customizable controls. An intuitive
new tone curve adjustment feature provides powerful image correction capabilities,
allowing users to visually obtain excellent midtone, shadow and highlight adjustments.




New enhancements in the Develop and Library modules include time-saving tools
such as the ability to re-name and convert files to Adobe Digital Negative Format
(DNG) after importing into the Lightroom library. New filters, search presets
and organizing options allow for quick retrieval of images and greater flexibility.




Lightroom supports over 125 native raw file formats, in addition to JPEG and TIFF,
and brings raw conversion into a single workflow experience. The latest camera
models supported by this beta are the Nikon D2Xs, Sony A100, as well as preliminary
support for the Canon Digital Rebel XTi (400D) and Nikon D80. 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 into the future.



Adobe hosts an online community site for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom beta which
features artists in the Lightroom Showcase Gallery (http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/lightroom/gallery)
and provides an arena for photographers to share their portfolios using Lightroom
slideshow functionality. Photographers will find inspiration in the documentaries
of well-known photographers posted in the community and gallery.



Pricing and Availability

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom beta is available for free download from the Adobe Labs
Web site at http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/lightroom.
Recommended system requirements are Macintosh OSX 10.4.3, 1 GHz PowerPC G4 processor
or Windows XP SP2, Intel Pentium 4 Processor, and 768 MB RAM and a 1024x768 resolution
screen. Adobe Photoshop Lightroom beta is a universal binary application that
will run natively on PowerPC and new Intel-based Macintosh systems. The final
version of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is expected to ship in early 2007. Further
details around pricing, system requirements and availability have yet to be determined.

Eye-Fi Inc. (www.eye.fi), makers of the world's first wireless memory
card for digital cameras, has announced that it collaborated with Nikon Corporation,
a world leader in digital imaging and precision optics, to deliver enhanced
integration of its Eye-Fi cards with Nikon's newly announced digital SLR
camera, Nikon D90. The D90 is Nikon's second "Eye-Fi Connected"
camera, following the Nikon D60, which was released earlier this year. Eye-Fi
Connected cameras make it easier for photographers to use their Eye-Fi cards
to wirelessly upload images to their computer or favorite online photo sharing
site.



While Eye-Fi cards work seamlessly with conventional SD-compatible digital cameras,
the Eye-Fi Connected Nikon D90 gives users an improved out-of- box experience
and more control of wireless capabilities. The camera will detect when an Eye-Fi
card is inserted and manage its power settings to ensure that photos upload
effortlessly for sharing and storing. In addition, the Nikon D90 will include
an Eye-Fi menu that allows users to turn the wireless function on or off, giving
the user more freedom to customize how and when they want to use the Eye-Fi
card. For example, if a user is in a hospital or on an airplane, or anywhere
else where wireless connectivity is not allowed, the user may disable the wireless
function through the Eye-Fi menu.



The Eye-fi Connected Nikon D90 will be unveiled at Photokina in Cologne, Germany
on September 23, 2008.

Nikon has introduced
the COOLPIX P5000 to the Nikon COOLPIX Performance Series of digital cameras.
The P5000 boasts 10 effective megapixels, a 3.5x Zoom-Nikkor glass lens, an optical
viewfinder, and a high resolution 2.5-inch LCD monitor with anti-reflection coating.
The P5000 incorporates a new advanced image processing engine, which optimizes
low light performance and color reproduction, and Nikon's optical VR image stabilization,
which compensates for camera shake.



The P5000 provides optical VR image stabilization, which helps compensate for
camera shake to produce sharper images. The VR stabilizes images displayed on
the 2.5-inch LCD, which makes it easier to frame and capture images. Another advantage
of the optical VR image stabilization is that it helps achieve smoother action
in the movie shooting modes of the P5000 and when using the optional TC-3ED Tele
converter with 378mm of telephoto performance.



The COOLPIX P5000 features a new advanced image processing engine with enhanced
noise reduction and an improved signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio that preserves image
quality even when shooting at high ISO settings. The P5000 extends the light sensitivity
range to ISO 3200, which makes it possible to capture fast moving subjects with
outstanding clarity, even in lower light conditions.



COOLPIX P5000 users can take advantage of the new mode dial which provides quick
access to a selection of 16 different scene-optimized modes, seven movie modes,
Anti-Shake mode and High Sensitivity mode. A turn of the mode dial to Anti-Shake
mode activates High ISO and Best Shot Selector (BSS) in addition to VR, which
automatically sets the optimal ISO for steady results and will allow users to
select and save the best image from up to ten sequential shots. In addition, the
mode dial has the choice of Programmed Auto [P], Shutter-priority Auto [S], Aperture-priority
Auto [A], and Manual [M] exposure modes for even greater camera control.



The COOLPIX P5000 features a new menu interface that makes navigating and selecting
images simple, while providing easy access to advanced functions for enhancing
and correcting images. This includes everything from the new image optimization
settings, which offer a choice of four color filters for shooting with monochrome
filter effects, to barrel distortion control, which can correct images when using
a wide-angle converter and can display the corrected image on the LCD in real
time.



The COOLPIX P5000 has three Nikon In-Camera Image Innovations to correct common
photo problems. This system includes Face-priority AF**, which can automatically
find and focus on a subject's face, In-Camera Red-Eye Fix, which automatically
corrects red-eye, and D-Lighting, an innovation that automatically creates a copy
of the image with detail added where necessary, but with well-exposed areas left
completely untouched. Because the P5000 has a 2.5-inch high resolution LCD monitor
with anti-reflection coating, viewing the monitor is easy even in bright sunlight.
The COOLPIX P5000 also features a new optical viewfinder for those photographers
who prefer a classic composition aid.



The COOLPIX P5000 is compatible with add-on system components to extend the user's
creative possibilities, including the 24mm Wide-angle lens Converter (WC-E67)
and the 378mm Telephoto Converter lens (TC-E3ED). A built-in accessory shoe supports
the use of Nikon's advanced i-TTL flash control for external flashes, including
the SB-400, SB-600, and SB-800 Speedlights.



The P5000 also comes with Nikon's PictureProject software. Powerful yet user-friendly
software makes transferring, organizing, editing and sharing photos easy. Furthermore,
the P5000 has PictBridge support and is compatible with SDHC cards.



The COOLPIX P5000 will be available nationwide in March 2007. The P5000 has an
MSRP of $399.95.
