Camtrol, a stabilizing
platform for video and DSLR cameras, is said to open a new world of balance,
support, and freedom for action shots taken by videographers and photographers.
Camtrol’s action control grip (ACG) with its anatomical articulating ergonomics
provides for natural hand positioning and control. The ACG has a hollow inside,
which accommodates any remote--putting control of the camera always under
the thumb of the shooter. Camtrol with a remote is a one-handed operation
giving the user the liberty to take any shot without restriction, and it works
for right- and left-handed shooters.

Manfrotto
has announced a new line of carbon fiber tripods, dubbed "CX. "
The new CX family is highlighted by redesigned locking levers, new leg angle
selectors, and re engineered magnesium and aluminum castings. The new ergonomic
locking levers are much easier for shooters to operate and thanks to their new
design, become a seamless element of all CX tripods. Much like the aluminum
190XPROB, the new CX PRO models feature Manfrotto's innovative Q90°
(Quick Center Column System). The Q90° system allows the center column to
be rotated to a horizontal position with one simple motion, all without removing
the head or disassembling the column itself, making switching between framing
and positioning setups easier. Additionally, Manfrotto has redesigned the top
plate on 190CXPRO4 and190CXPRO3 tripods. The magnesium top plate on the CX PRO
series now incorporates a bubble to help aid in leveling the camera and tripod,
and has also been refined for a more attractive look. The redesign of the plate
also yields a significant reduction in weight.



In order to reach high-quality standards and high levels of performance, rigidity
and lightness, the new Manfrotto CX tubes are made of 100 percent carbon fiber.
When it comes to the use of composite materials-- especially carbon fiber --
in the manufacture of photographic supports, the end result can vary and ultimately
depends on the production process and the ratio of carbon fiber material to
epoxy present in the tubes. For its CX carbon fiber tripods, Manfrotto utilized
nothing other than 100 percent carbon fiber and employed pultrusion, pull winding
technology to manufacture the tubes. Pultrusion is a production process that
allows for the manufacture of carbon fiber tubes that excel in both flexion
resistance and torsion rigidity; features that matter most for camera support
applications.



The 190CXPRO4 and 190CXPRO3 feature all carbon fiber tubes, including a tri-faceted
center column, while the simpler CX3 version features carbon fiber tubes paired
with an aluminum center column and aluminum top plate.

Epson America Inc. has announced the the Epson PowerLite 76c. Featuring up to
2,000 ANSI lumens of brightness with XGA native resolution (1,024 x 768) in a
5.7-pound design, the PowerLite 76c is slated to sell for $1,099 (estimated street
price.) Driven by Epson's 3LCD technology, a three-chip engine design that
projects continuous color and vibrant images, the PowerLite 76c is said to display
a wide color gamut with excellent brightness and edge-to-edge consistency. In
addition, the PowerLite 76c comes with a new Instant OffTM feature for immediate
shutdown of the projector. Epson has also equipped the PowerLite 76c with new
lamp technology, E-TORL (Epson Twin Optimized Reflection Lamp), to deliver what
is said to be a superior level of brightness in a compact form factor. E-TORL
efficiently gathers and projects light to reduce light leakage and diffraction.



To get presentations up and running quickly and smoothly, the PowerLite 76c takes
only four seconds between pressing the power button and projection of the start-up
screen. And, with Epson's exclusive Instant Off feature, no cool down time
is necessary. Users can simply press the power button and unplug the power cable
immediately at the end of their presentation.



For added control, the PowerLite 76c features a "Source Search" button
which automatically identifies and displays the connected inputs and changes instantly
between sources. A 1.2x optical zoom lens enables users to easily adjust the display
size to project large images from relatively short throw distances, resulting
in a wide range of set-up possibilities. The unit's 30-degree keystone correction
ensures a high-quality display, even in less-than-ideal environments. Depending
on the presenting environment, the PowerLite 76c allows users to choose a 1,500
ANSI lumens "Low Brightness" mode to increase lamp life.



The included remote control enables PowerPoint and Keynote presentation slides
to be advanced and manipulated without using a PC. The projector also offers several
useful features for ceiling-mount projection, including top-side access for easy
lamp replacement, front-side access for air-filter replacement, easy switch to
ceiling-mount mode (inverted picture) via the remote control, and direct power-on
that is activated automatically when a room's power source is switched on.




The Epson PowerLite 76c will be available through authorized pro audio/visual,
national distribution, catalog, and direct PC dealers in October 2005. Epson's
PowerLite projectors come with a two-year limited warranty that includes three
elite technical support services -- two-year Epson PrivateLine™ availability,
two-year Road Service Program and two-year International Warranty. Through the
PrivateLine, projector owners can directly access an expedited support telephone
line (typically in about one minute) by using a phone card that is included with
the product.
