Mamiya has announced the release of an IR Photo filter for the Mamiya ZD Digital
back. "Today's CCD sensors are highly sensitive to infrared light,"
said Jeff Karp, Mamiya Product Marketing Manager, "and the IR Cut filter
built into cameras reduces infrared light transmission. The result is more accurate
and natural color. The IR Cut filter, however, makes infrared photography impossible.
In response to the large number of requests from infrared photographers, especially
with the scarcity of infrared film, this filter was created."



Mamiya developed the IR Photo Filter for use on the Mamiya ZD Digital Back. The
IR Photo Filter YD401 (which replaces the standard IR Cut Filter) is a clear filter
that allows the transmission of infrared light as well as visible light rays.



"Unlike specialized IR cameras or modified systems," states Karp,
"the Mamiya ZD Digital Back can be transformed from standard digital to
IR digital, simply by changing the user-replaceable sensor filters." Photographers
will need to add an infrared filter (89B or 87) on the front of the lens to produce
typical infrared images with dramatic dark skies, glowing greens and "magical"
skin tones. It is available mid-January 2008.

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.
