It's not often a camera like the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ comes along.
But when it does, it thankfully arrives in several flavors to suit various tastes,
in 4-, and 5-Mp versions, priced at $499 (DMC-FZ15), and $599 (DMC-FZ20), respectively.




For starters, what makes the Lumix FZ stand out is the Leica DC Vario-Elmarit
6-72mm/12x optical zoom lens, which translates into 36-432mm, in 35mm parlance.
More astounding still is the maximum aperture: f/2.8, which defines a fast lens
for this zoom range, one eminently suited to low-light situations. As if that
weren't enough, optical image stabilization should help when shooting
in subdued light at relatively long shutter speeds, a key feature we'll
be testing.

photographic competition will give scuba divers, free-divers and snorkelers
the chance to win exciting prizes based on their underwater photographic skills,

dive sites. Providenciales features fabulous coral gardens and sand ribbons.
Grand Turk and Salt Cay feature distinctive wall diving, an incredible fish
population, and countless manta rays in the summer. With a starfish-scattered
white sand bottom, West Caicos is best known for its famous sponge formations.
During the months of July and August, French Cay is frequented by mating nurse
sharks, between December and March hundreds of migrating humpback whales call
the waters of the Turks and Caicos home.



The competition will award prizes in two categories: Amateur and Professional
Photographers. Individuals participating in the competition can submit their
entries to any participating dive shop or the Tourist Board offices. All entries
will be evaluated by an expert team of judges and must be received by August

Phase One A/S announced the immediate availability of Capture One 4 PRO, the RAW workflow software for photographers focused on transforming RAW files into the highest quality photographs.

Capture One 4 PRO has been designed to enhance the image quality of professional digital captures. It is built on a darkroom paradigm to enhance images and minimize the need for post-production. The workflow is responsive and flexible, adapting to a photographer’s needs.

Capture One 4 PRO is designed to satisfy a photographer’s specific work preference and situation. It offers freedom to create custom tool tabs with existing personal toolsets, and to work with multi monitor setups.

World leading tethered shooting is delivered by connecting a Phase One digital back or a supported DSLR camera to the computer and capturing images directly into Capture One 4 PRO.

The Styles feature has been redesigned to give photographers broader choices in exploring and creating unique looks that can be controlled and reproduced to create an exclusive signature.

An enhanced Color Editor feature permits fine-tuning of image colors with precise adjustment tools. Color adjustments can be saved as presets or as customized ICC profiles for consistent reproduction across multiple images.

A new Skin Tone tool lets photographers easily set and reproduce skin tones shot under various light conditions, even without using a gray card.

New Lens Correction tools improve image quality by compensating for undesired lens characteristics. These tools minimize chromatic aberration, purple fringing, distortion, sharpness falloff and light falloff. They permit creative effects such as image framing with a new vignetting tool.

Capture One 4 PRO supports Phase One and Mamiya medium format cameras and RAW files from a wide range of cameras including: Canon, Epson, Fuji, Konica Minolta, Leica, Nikon, Olympus, Pentax, and Sony. Please see http://www.phaseone.com/4 for specific models.

Phase One Capture One 4 PRO is available now in English through Phase One’s worldwide partner network (please see http://www.phaseone.com/Content/ContactUs/LocateDealer.aspx) and Phase One’s e-shop at http://www.phaseone.com/Content/EshopMenu.aspx.

Recommended minimum system requirements are Macintosh OS X 10.5.5 or later, Intel® based processor, or Microsoft Windows® XP SP3 or Windows Vista SP1 and Windows .NET Framework v3, Intel Pentium 4® processor, 1 GB RAM and a 1280 x 800 resolution screen.  More information on product  features is available at http://www.phaseone.com/4.
