The MagFiber series of tripods and monopods comprise a revolutionary design, combining
the strength of magnesium and carbon fiber. Each leg is crafted from carbon fiber
using an exclusive, patented process. Under intense pressure, extra long carbon
fibers are combined with resin to produce a stronger tube that absorbs more vibration
than any other tripod in its class; all with a wall thickness of only 1.2mm. To

Epson America, Inc. has unveiled its latest scanner for the advanced amateur
and creative consumer markets. The Epson Perfection V500 Photo color scanner
is said to provide professional results with 6400 dpi optical resolution. Also
featuring Epson's new ReadyScan LED technology, which delivers fast scans
and no warm-up time, the Epson V500 Photo is only $249.99.



With 6400 dpi optical resolution, users can create 17" x 22" or
bigger enlargements from film. Additionally, with 48-bit color depth and a 3.4
dynamic range, the Epson V500 Photo produces scans with brilliant, true-to-life
colors.



The energy-efficient ReadyScan LED technology completely eliminates warm-up
time both when turning on the scanner and when switching back-and-forth between
reflective and film scanning, as well as automatically turns off in standby
mode, using less power while offering greater productivity. Because the LED
is more efficient than cold cathode fluorescent lamps, users get fast scan speeds.
The ReadyScan LED also adjusts color of the light source based on the type of
original being scanned, using white light for positive film and blue light for
negative film, to produce precise and efficient scans. Additionally, the mercury-free
LEDs are friendly to the environment.



The Epson V500 Photo includes two powerful, yet easy-to-use complete photo restoration
solutions for advanced amateur photographers and creative consumers, including
Digital ICE and Epson Easy Photo Fix technology. Digital ICE is an innovative
technology that easily removes the appearance of dust and scratches from film,
eliminating the need for costly photo retouching services to get the best results.
Epson Easy Photo Fix restores faded color photos, slides and negatives back
to their original brilliance with one click.



Adding to the productivity of the EpsonV500 Photo scanner is a built-in transparency
unit (TPU) with a moving carriage and lamp optimized for scanning multiple 35mm
negatives, slides and medium-format film. The scanner can handle up to four
mounted slides or two film strips up to 12 total frames, or medium-format film
of 2-1/4", 120/220 and 6 x 12 cm. Additional features include an optional
Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) that enables users to quickly scan multiple
documents.



The Epson V500 Photo also comes with Epson Creativity Suite, which includes
Scan to E-Mail, Copy Utility and Scan to PDF; Adobe Photoshop Elements; and
ABBYY Fine Reader 6 Sprint Plus OCR (ABBYY Fine Reader®5 Sprint Plus OCR
for Mac). The scanner is compatible with Microsoft Windows 2000, Windows Me,
Windows XP, Windows Vista, Macintosh OS X 10.2.8 and later, and is also TWAIN
compliant.



The Epson V500 Photo can be purchased for an estimated street price of $249.99
from Epson authorized dealers, consumer electronic stores, mail order, distribution,
and on the Epson Store Web site (www.epsonstore.com).
The optional ADF will be available for an estimated street price of $199.99
on the Epson Store Web site. The Epson V500 Photo comes with a one-year limited
warranty. More information about the Epson V500 Photo and other Epson scanners
is available at www.epson.com
or 1-800-GO-EPSON (1-800-463-7766).

Phase One A/S and Mamiya Digital Imaging Co., Ltd. today unveiled an open medium
format digital camera platform. Known as the Phase One 645 Camera or the Mamiya
645AFDIII, the co-developed platform will be sold exclusively by Phase One and
Mamiya.



The camera platform provides a modular system that offers unprecedented feature
combinations, and most significantly the freedom to choose individual components
from an open platform to best serve their working needs.



Designed to accept all quality digital camera backs, the camera platform is
also open for traditional film operation. It offers the widest choice of high-end
lenses, including the complete Mamiya 645 lens range, the new 28mm aspherical
and D series lenses, as well as Hasselblad V-lenses and Pentacon Six lenses.
It is designed to achieve shutter speeds from 1/4000 sec. to 60 min. The camera
features an ergonomic molded grip and provides direct control of critical camera
settings using manual dials -- both of which are essential elements for the
professional photographer engaged in day-long hand-held shooting sessions.



"Phase One and Mamiya have taken the first step in delivering a unique
approach to designing camera systems," said Henrik Hakonsson, CEO of Phase
One. "We believe that equipment interoperability and personal choice are
integral values in realizing the highest quality imaging results. Furthermore
we have invested heavily in optimizing all elements of the camera systems reliability
to maximize the photographers' time for shooting extraordinary images."




"Mamiya and Phase One are consolidating our expertise and fulfilling our
ambitions to provide the products desired by our customers," said Tsuyoshi
Tsutsumi, CEO of Mamiya Digital Imaging. "We will continue to cooperate
and work hard to ensure that future camera systems are limited only by the imagination
and desires of the artists that use them."
