Fine art printmakers and their customers will soon have a guarantee on the longevity
of certain Epson fine art prints through Epson's new UltraGiclée(tm)
print certification program. This certification will enable printmakers to sell
their work and enable customers to buy these prints with confidence that the
prints will last.



UltraGiclée certified fine art prints, which can only be created on selected
Epson professional printers using select professional media and EPSON UltraChrome(tm)
ink, will be warranted to resist noticeable fading for 80 years from the original
date of purchase when the print is printed, framed, handled and displayed according
to warranty conditions. If a warranted print fades, Epson will provide the ink
and paper needed to make a replacement print. Current certified printers include
the EPSON Stylus Pro 4000, 7600 and 9600 printers, and certified media include
UltraSmooth(tm) Fine Art Paper, Textured Fine Art Paper and PremierArt(tm) Water
Resistant Canvas for Epson.



Wilhelm Imaging Research (www.wilhelm-research.com)
has independently tested the printers, inks and papers used in Epson's UltraGiclée
certification program for the fine art, fine art reproduction and fine art photography
industries. Final prints made according to the program's specifications will
be registered and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.


In order to earn UltraGiclée certification, printmakers will attend a
training class on proper printing and finishing techniques. Classes will be
offered starting in late spring in various cities across the country. Details
will be available at www.epson.com/ultragiclee
beginning March 14.

All serious photographers need to keep their cameras at peak efficiency to deliver peak performance, and a fleck of dust on the sensor can ruin a great shot. Now, LensPen makes it easy and practical to solve that problem with their SensorKlear Loupe Kit.

Used on the International Space Station, this kit has proved its effectiveness and reliability under the most demanding conditions.

Positioned on the camera body, as you would a lens, the Loupe provides perfectly directed light to pinpoint the problem. Once dust is detected, the included blower is used to remove the dry dust. But for tackling the dreaded problem of sticky dust, that is when the SensorKlear Loupe Kit really makes a difference. Using the access window at the side of the Loupe, insert the angled tip of the new SensorKlear II™ pen to safely and easily target and remove the sticky dust. Only the LensPen SensorKlear Loupe has the access window to allow the user to see and clean at the same time – a quantum leap forward in the world of DSLR sensor cleaning.

SensorKlear Loupe Kit from LensPen is a “must-have” for your digital SLR – a necessity, not an accessory. Ask for a demonstration next time you visit your favorite camera shop.

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.
