the two companies have reached an exclusive worldwide licensing agreement by

of GE-branded digital cameras.



Headquartered
in Torrance, Calif., General Imaging brings together a variety of photo industry
veterans. Komiya is a former president of Olympus Imaging Corp. Leading sales
efforts in North America will be Rene Buhay, a former vice president of Global
Sales for ArcSoft who had also headed North American sales for both Samsung

chief designer. Kawano's design credits include the Sony Walkman, the Sony VAIO

style and at the same time have all the latest technology."

Sony is expanding its alpha system of accessories to include the new HVL-F58AM
flash unit with exceptional features for versatile and flexible external lighting
control. This new flash features a new Quick Shift Bounce system. It offers
more creative ways to achieve lighting, flash and bounce angles. The flash head
can pivot 90 degrees left and right on a horizontal axis in addition to the
conventional up and down vertical adjustment. With this system, the camera and
flash unit can keep the same orientation regardless of portrait or landscape
shooting. This gives a higher degree of flexibility when arranging the direction
of light. For example, you can take full advantage of the flash unit's
built-in bounce card even during portrait shots since the flash head can maintain
the same orientation as it would in the landscape position.

One year after the announcement of the IMAGELINK print system -- a specification
designed to simplify at-home picture printing -- new cameras and printers
supporting the standard are being released. Joining a host of KODAK EASYSHARE
cameras and printer docks already released this year, Olympus has announced the
Camedia C315 zoom digital camera, the D555 zoom digital camera and ILP-100 printer
dock which are all IMAGELINK compatible.



"The IMAGELINK print system is one of the world's most important digital
photography advancements for consumers and we at Olympus are very pleased to be
among the first to introduce products compatible with this system," said
Mr. Bang Il Seok, director, Marketing Division Manager of Olympus Imaging Corp.




Millions of consumer digital cameras from Eastman Kodak Company, Konica Minolta
Photo Imaging, Inc., Nikon Corporation, Olympus Corporation, Pentax Corporation,
Ricoh Co., Ltd. and Sanyo Electric Co., Ltd. will provide effortless, one-touch
picture printing from snapshot printers that incorporate the IMAGELINK print system,
including new KODAK EASYSHARE printer docks.



A consumer Web site dedicated to the IMAGELINK print system went live earlier
this year. The site -- www.imagelinkprintsystem.com
-- includes links to compatible digital camera and printer information, an
animated presentation to help people visualize the camera-printer connection,
frequently asked questions and news related to the specification.
