Kingston Technology Company, Inc. has posted answers to a new series of questions
submitted by professional and aspiring digital photographers to its Ask the
Icon interactive feature on the `Icons of Photography' microsite
on kingston.com.



"Kingston's `Icons of Photography' has generated interest
from photographers of all levels who want to learn from some of the world's
most-respected photographers," said Jaja Lin, Flash memory marketing manager,
Kingston®. "We're delighted to be a conduit between our customers
and the Icons, providing a platform where everyone can share and explore ideas,"
added Lin.



Questions submitted by digital photographers from England, Malaysia, Ireland
and the U.S. were addressed by Kingston's four Icon photographers participating
in the program -- Harry Benson, Colin Finlay, Gerd Ludwig and Peter Read
Miller. Site visitors are encouraged to ask questions related to equipment;
tips and techniques for capturing better images; advice about getting started
as a photographer; or marketing one's work.



"I continue to be impressed with the level of interest photographers have
shown in the program and the types of questions they ask," said Finlay,
whose recent book project, Darfur: Twenty Years of War and Genocide in Sudan
recently won a Lucie Award in New York. "I think we learn as much from
them as they are hopefully learning from us and there is a great level of satisfaction
that comes from openly sharing our collective knowledge with each other."



Kingston's `Icons of Photography' program consists of three
elements -- 20 Questions, Ask the Icon and Critique My Image. Through the
program, professional photographers and enthusiasts can improve their techniques
by submitting their own photography for constructive critique. Additional information
is available at www.kingston.com/iop.

YPOC, a leading producer of custom canvas prints and pioneer of innovative print-on-canvas processes, has re-designed its website to help consumers take all the guesswork out of converting their precious photos into amazing PhotoGiclées on canvas. By incorporating proprietary Image Resolution Detection software, uploaded images are automatically "evaluated" to determine all canvas enlargements that will render excellent results. Canvas sizes deemed too large based on the quality of the original image file can still be chosen, but only those sizes that will showcase the image best will be highlighted, helping to avoid customer disappointment and removing the customer need to use image editors like Photoshop.

Having logged more airline miles recently than I'd care to admit, with
cameras and lenses and laptop to boot, I welcome any products that can make
the trip, and transition between connections easier. The "post-9/11 world",
as it sadly has come to be known, has not made it easier on photographers to
get where they need to go with the gear they must trudge along with them. With
that in mind, we recently had a close look at the Airport Security Roller/Backpack
from ThinkTank Photo, which combines carry-on capability with security and gear
--protecting features.
