PENTAX Imaging Company has announced the PENTAX K100D, which combines 6.1 effective
megapixels with a host of advanced technologies including a Shake Reduction
(SR) system to deliver high-quality digital SLR photography and user-friendly
operation to all levels of photographers. The PENTAX-developed Shake Reduction
(SR) system in the K100D effectively offers a two-stop advantage for sharp,
blur-free images even under difficult shooting conditions, such as using a telephoto
lens or shooting in low light without a flash.



The SR mechanism is designed to minimize camera shake by oscillating the CCD
image sensor vertically and horizontally at high speed using magnetic force,
while adjusting the speed of oscillation in proportion to the amount of camera
shake detected by a built-in sensor. As a result, the system does not require
special anti-shake lenses and can be used with almost all existing PENTAX interchangeable
lenses.



Also announced is the PENTAX K110D, an entry-level digital SLR camera, which
has all of the features of the K100D with the exception of Shake Reduction.
Both models reflect a new digital SLR naming system that references the reverse
compatibility that each body has with the legacy of PENTAX K-mount lenses. The
PENTAX K100D will ship along with the smc 18-55mm lens in July 2006 for $699.95
US, while the PENTAX K110D will ship along with the smc 18-55mm lens in August
2006 for $599.95 US.



Along with the two new SLR models, PENTAX announced the smc PENTAX DA 21mm F3.2
AL Limited interchangeable wide-angle lens. Previewed at PMA 2006 in Orlando,
the lens features a versatile angle of view and an ultra-thin, pancake design
that offers go-anywhere portability that is ideal for casual, day-to-day snapshot
photography. The latest lens inherits all the attributes of the acclaimed PENTAX
Limited lens series including high-quality image reproduction, distinctive visual
description, and high-grade lens-barrel finish. The smc PENTAX DA 21mm F3.2
AL Limited lens will ship in July 2006 for $549.95.

Brooks Institute of Photography has announced that it's "5 x 5"
fine art photography exhibition will be the school's featured event as
a participant in the Downtown Organization's 1st Thursday initiative.
A public artist's reception will take place on Thursday, February 1, 2007
from 5 -- 9 pm at the Cota Street Campus and Gallery, located at 27 E.
Cota Street in Santa Barbara.



Five photographic perspectives by five recent Brooks' graduates depict
this "artist invitational" public exhibition. More than 50 images
will be on display by photographers: Chris Buckpitt (2003), Adam Gerlach (2003),
Kodiak Greenwood (2004), Serena Lee (2005) and Matthew Rainwaters (2003).



Adam Gerlach, who serves as the gallery's assistant director, specializes
in black-and-white photography. He also specializes in hand-toning his work
to transform reality and create strange and unfamiliar qualities in his images.
Greenwood, a native of Big Sur, has twice earned awards in the Fuji photography
competition, and is represented in private galleries. His extensive photography
of the West Coast -- both in color and black-and-white -- has garnered
critical acclaim.



In contrast to outdoor and landscape photography, Chris Buckpitt strives to
capture the essence of people. About his work, he says "I have a very
deep connection to the human race, and I have always found the human body to
be very beautiful."



Serena Lee, already distinguished in her field of portrait, wedding and fine
art photography, finds that her passions lie in using antique and alternative
processes, and digital imaging, to mix the old world with the new. Her work
has been seen in many venues, including the International Photography Hall of
Fame.



Matthew Rainwaters began working with cameras at age 14 shooting skate videos
with his friends. Five years later, he bought a Pentax K-1000 and took a junior
college photography course. A teacher's comment that he was "pretty
good" forever changed his life. Today, his work's featured twice
in the Advertising Photographers of America annual Personal Ads show, appeared
in the notable Focus on Aids charity auction in Beverly Hills, and has shown
in the Frank Lloyd Wright Hollyhock House. He presently teaches photography
and reprints portfolios for publication.



The `5 x 5' exhibition, which opens on January 18, will run through
March 31, 2007. In the coming months, the Cota Campus and Gallery will feature
exhibitions by a range of professional photographers, as well as shows presented
by Brooks Institute students and alumni. The public is invited to visit the
gallery on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., and on weekends from 10 a.m. to 9
p.m. For more information, call the Brooks Institute Cota St. Campus and Gallery
at (805) 690-4913.
