Fuji
Photo Film U.S.A., Inc. has announced that the FinePix S3 will be available
in October, 2004 with a number of previously unannounced features, including
adjustable dynamic range and film simulation modes.



New feature highlights of the FinePix S3 Pro include:

Improved Dynamic Range -- The unique double photodiode design (6.17
million S-pixels and 6.17 million R-pixels) of the Super CCD SR II sensor
is said by Fuji to produce dynamic range approximately 400% greater than
that of CCD working on a single-pixel design, capturing the finest detail
in even the highest contrast scenes.

Adjustable Dynamic Range No longer confined within a small, fixed space,
professional photographers will have the option to adjust the camera's
dynamic range, changing the mixing ratio between the FinePix S3 Pro's
"S" and "R" pixels.



Film Simulation Modes

Photographers that favor the look and feel of film can replicate the results
of various chrome and negative films while shooting digitally with the
FinePix S3 Pro.



Color Spaces

The FinePix S3 Pro will offer a choice of sRBG and Adobe RGB to generate
the color best suited for the job.



Selectable RAW capture modes

Sometimes, a smaller file is needed. With the FinePix S3 Pro, the user
will be able to "turn off" the expanded dynamic range function
without losing resolution.



Lightning-Fast Start-Up

The FinePix S3 Pro goes from off to ready-to-shoot in one-half second
with any compatible media type.

The FinePix S3 Pro package will include Fujifilm's own HS-V2 Hyper-Utility
software, a workflow enhancement tool that acts like a digital lightbox,
helping photographers pick their best images.

The following was posted recently on the Adobe blog page site:



The Lightroom 1.4 update for Mac and Windows has been temporarily removed from
the Adobe.com web site. Those Lightroom users who have installed Lightroom 1.4
should uninstall the update and install Lightroom 1.3.1.(Mac, Win) until a further
update can be provided. For those not in immediate need of the updated camera
support available in Camera Raw 4.4 or the DNG 4.4 Converter, it's recommended
that you also continue working with the 4.3.1 versions. (Mac, Win) This decision
is based on the following errors that have been discovered with the recent update:



EXIF Time Stamp Error: There is an error in the EXIF time stamp
update technology that causes Lightroom to believe that the files are out of
sync with the correct time stamp as displayed in Lightroom. Any ensuing metadata
update will attempt to incorrectly modify the EXIF time stamp in the original
raw file itself. This is the only metadata field that Lightroom will write to
an original proprietary raw file. This error will not impact the integrity of
your image data. The Camera Raw plug-in also will incorrectly change the EXIF
time stamp in files converted by the plug-in. The information written to the
XMP sidecar files or XMP metadata in the converted files will remain correct.



DNG Conversion Error(Windows Only): With the latest version
of the Lightroom 1.4 and Camera Raw 4.4 applications, Adobe has included technology
to verify that the image data in a DNG file is unchanged from when it was originally
converted to DNG. Unfortunately, when converting to DNG using Lightroom 1.4
on Windows, the application will write an incorrect verification tag to describe
the image data. When Lightroom attempts to work with those files in the Develop
module, the application reads that incorrect tag, believes that there is something
wrong with the raw data and will present an error. Rest assured, there is nothing
wrong with the integrity of your image data or metadata. For those that have
already converted their files to DNG using Lightroom 1.4(Windows only) we recommend
using the DNG 4.3.1 converter to convert the DNG files you've created
with Lightroom 1.4.



Olympus Conversion Error: There is an error in converting Olympus
JPEG files to other formats in Lightroom 1.4 and the Camera Raw 4.4 plug-in.




To uninstall Lightroom 1.4 please see the instructions per your platform: Mac:
Delete the Lightroom application in the Application folder(Mac) and Delete the
following file: Library/Receipts/Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.pkg Windows: Choose
the Uninstall Lightroom 1.4 menu item from the Windows start menu. The Add/Remove
Program utility on Windows will also achieve the same result.
