Konica Minolta Photo Imaging U.S.A., Inc., announces the development of three
new "DT" lenses - interchangeable Digital technology (DT) lenses designed
for the Maxxum Series digital SLR cameras, including the Maxxum 7D. These new
zoom lenses will expand the lineup of Konica Minolta interchangeable lenses
for Maxxum Series cameras. The DT Lenses employ a new optical system that is
specifically designed for digital SLR cameras, including the Maxxum 7D, which
incorporate an APS-C size CCD image sensor. Plans are to launch these Digital
Technology (DT) Lenses worldwide in the fall of 2005.



Developing interchangeable lenses for digital SLR cameras with an optical system
optimized for the popular Maxxum 7D meets the needs of users who would prefer
to take ultra-wide- angle pictures, users who would like to take pictures with
a compact standard zoom, and users who would like to easily take telephoto shots
without changing the lens.

Mamiya has introduced the new Mamiya Sekor Macro MF 120mm f/4 D Lens -- successor
to the popular Mamiya Macro MF 120mm f/4 Lens.



"The Mamiya 120mm f/4 macro lens is one of the sharpest lenses available
today," said Jeff Karp, Mamiya Product Marketing Manager, "and it
has already been critically corrected for digital imaging. But it needed an upgrade
to be fully compatible with the latest cameras, software and digital backs."



The primary upgrade of the new lens is related to digital communication with the
camera. Data transfer is now controlled by a 16-bit CPU instead of the previous
4-bit CPU.



The advantages of the new CPU are:

Rewritability: The new 16-bit CPU is rewritable and can be overwritten
with firmware upgrades that would be required for compatibility with future cameras
and digital backs.


Finer Lens Correction: Thanks to the bigger capacity of the CPU,
the new lens has more lens data. It is possible to apply finer lens-characteristic
corrections when using Mamiya's Digital Photostudio¨ software.



Fast, Reliable Communication: The new CPU enables faster and more reliable communication
with the camera body.



As its name suggests, the new D-series lens shows its true capabilities when shooting
with the Mamiya ZD Digital back and other high-end digital backs. However, it
is designed to be equally at home with film backs.



The new Mamiya Sekor Macro MF 120mm f/4 D Lens is compatible with the Mamiya 645AFD
ll camera and is available for immediate delivery.

October will be a month of a thousand smiles for families across the country as
Professional Photographers of America (PPA) designated it as Family Portrait Month.
Studios from across the country will join together to participate in the benefit
to assist Operation Smile (www.operationsmile.org),
a nonprofit organization that helps children with facial deformities such as cleft
lips and cleft palates.



More than $15,000 was raised during last year's drive and PPA member studios

"October is an ideal time for families to have their portraits created,
because the holiday season is just around the corner," said Ann Monteith,

as portraits of family members."



Operation Smile, along with more than 5,000 specialized health care professionals,

are born with facial deformities in Operation Smile's 23 mission countries.

Olympus has announced that it is developing a new interchangeable-lens digital SLR (single lens reflex) within the Olympus E-System lineup. This new Four Thirds-compliant camera reinforces the company’s commitment to the standard.

Positioned as a mid-level model, this new digital SLR camera is intended for anyone who wants to express their creativity through photography, whether they are just starting out or are a professional with years of experience behind them. Introduction of the new camera is expected in the first quarter of 2009.

At the last Photokina (September 2006), Olympus declared that the second chapter in the story of the Olympus E-System would begin in 2007. One of the highlights of this chapter was the incorporation of “Full-Time Live View” function as a standard function for the first time in the industry, adding to the excitement already generated by other distinctive features of the E-System such as the “100 percent Digital-Dedicated Design” and “Dust Reduction System.” Currently, the E-System lineup includes popular models such as the E-420 and E-520, as well as the flagship E-3. All of these cameras provide digital SLR users with the high-quality images, superior reliability and exceptional portability they need.

The prototype model displayed at Photokina is being developed as an advanced amateur model that will be positioned between the E-520 and E-3. In terms of quality and performance, however, there is nothing mid-level about this model. It will inherit all the outstanding features of the E-3 such as the high-speed autofocus system using an 11-point full twin-cross sensor and the built-in image stabilization mechanism with a correction effect of up to 5 EV steps1. Other highlights will include a new and updated feature to replace the current splash and dustproof function of the E-3.


With the introduction of this new camera, Olympus will expand its line of Four Thirds System-compliant digital SLR cameras, providing a wider range of choices to a wider range of users from serious amateurs to professionals.
