Extensis, a brand of Celartem Inc., has released Portfolio Server 8.5, a major
upgrade to its Portfolio Server creative assets management product line. Portfolio
Server 8.5 is the hub of Extensis' open system providing new capabilities
to CS3 workgroups in need of a flexible archive and automated web delivery asset
system. As a standard for managing creative assets within workgroups, Portfolio
Server 8.5 includes powerful Mac and Windows clients, a complete web publishing
solution and integration for CS3 applications.



Included with Portfolio Server 8.5 is Portfolio Project Sync for Adobe Creative
Suite 3. Developed in close partnership with Adobe, Project Sync brings together
the power of Portfolio Server with the convenience of the CS3 environment. Providing
seamless integration between Portfolio Server and CS3, Project Sync enables powerful
searching, archiving and automated web delivery from within creative applications.
Project Sync ties transparently into Portfolio Server, providing teams real-time
access to their assets.



This seamless integration allows creative workgroups to search, access, catalog
and tag assets in Portfolio Server, via Adobe Bridge and other CS3 applications.
Through this connection CS3 users tap into the powerful asset sharing and archiving
capabilities of Portfolio Server, all without leaving their primary creative application.
For example, a designer adds XMP data to an Adobe Photoshop file. Portfolio Project
Sync instantly syncs this information making it available to other Portfolio workgroup
clients and Portfolio NetPublish web sites. Users can now remain within CS3 applications
to distribute creative assets.

Fuji has introduced three new digicams at PMA 2006, the FinePix F30, the FinePix
F650, and the FinePix A600. Perhaps the most interesting is their new FinePix
F30. It incorporates Fujifilm's second era of Real Photo Technology, containing
a sixth generation Super CCD sensor and the RP Processor II. This 6.3 MP FinePix
F30 is the world's first point-and-shoot digital camera for consumers with full-resolution
ISO equivalency speeds as high as 3200 - a setting previously reserved for higher-end
professional digital camera models. Higher light sensitivities allow the FinePix
F30 to shoot with faster shutter speeds, which lessen the likelihood of blurred
pictures. In addition, the F30 is said to have a battery that can deliver 500
pictures on a single charge.



A new flash system, called i-Flash, works in tandem with Real Photo Technology
to intelligently read available light and adjust its power accordingly for proper
contrast. This coordinated action exposes subjects more accurately, adjusting
intensity and focus point by measuring a variety of environmental scene factors
to ultimately capture an image as your eye sees it.



On the film front, Fujifilm commemorates the 20th Anniversary of its invention
of the One-Time-Use Camera with the introduction of QuickSnap 1000. The new QuickSnap
1000 models are preloaded with new 1000 speed Fujicolor film with Fujifilm's patented
4th Color Layer Technology -- the highest speed film of any One-Time-Use Camera
in the U.S. today. They are available in Flash, Colors (Blue, Red and Purple)
and Outdoor versions and provide several important benefits for consumers including
a flash range extended to 17 ft. (except for Outdoor model), better action shots
and less blur than other Fujifilm models, and better pictures in low light.



Fujifilm has also introduced Fujichrome T64 Professional Film, a new ISO 64 tungsten-type
color transparency film that delivers ultra-fine grain and optimum tonal scale
and gradation under tungsten lighting. Fujichrome T64 Professional incorporates
new-generation color couplers and Multi-Color Correction Layer Technology that
ensure pure, accurate color reproduction. This film is ideal for a wide range
of product shots, interiors, furniture, architecture, certain medical imaging
needs and other professional applications requiring tungsten lighting. The new
film also possesses excellent color image stability.



And, an increasing rarity at any photo show, Fujifilm has also introduced two
new 35mm film cameras.The Fujifilm Clear Shot V ll, with manual film advance and
manual flash, and Clear Shot M ll, with Automatic Film Advance and Rewind and
Automatic Flash feature focus-free Fujinon lenses and Red-Eye Reduction and offer
big, bright viewfinders for easy photo composition.

Skooba
Design has added a collection of camera/binocular straps to its patent-pending
Superbungee Shoulder Strap line. Like the original Superbungee Bag Strap, the
camera/binocular version features what the company calls a "sport-tuned
suspension system," consisting of a high-density, floating bungee cord
ring which acts as a shock absorber, minimizing carrying discomfort and perceived
weight. On the reverse (wearer) side of the shoulder pad is a flexible strip
of individual, air-filled cells. The cells add to the shock absorption and comfort,
and are covered in a friction laminate to help prevent slipping.



The strap is designed to fit any current camera or binocular with standard,
3/8"/11mm strap slots, or it can be threaded to the split keyring-type
connectors on older cameras. Strap length has a nominal overall length adjustment
range of 21-45 inches, and is equally well-suited for carrying around the neck
or over the shoulder.



The Superbungee Shoulder Strap is available in 5 different color combinations,
at a suggested retail price of $19.95. The original Superbungee Bag strap--a
larger version designed as an upgrade to standard straps found on laptop/photo
bags, sports duffels, luggage and other carrying cases--is available in
6 color combinations at $25.95.
