Tamron USA, Inc. announced that
its new zoom lens, SP AF200-500mm F/5-6.3 Di LD (IF), won the prestigious Hot1
award. The 2004 Hot1 Awards were the biggest ever, with over 200 total entries
in more than 40 categories. This was the sixth consecutive year for the awards,
and the contest has grown in popularity and prestige in each year of its existence.
The awards are designed to evaluate and honor top-grade products for the professional
photography market. Professional Photographer magazine holds an open entry period
during which companies voluntarily enter products in various categories, providing
all pertinent product information directly. Professional Photographer editors
then audit the categories, make any necessary adjustments or changes, and submit
all the information to the panel of expert judges.



The Hot1 judging panel is made up of working professional photographers. These
photographers are selected for their specific knowledge of certain market segments
and asked to vote on product categories that fall within their area of expertise.
The judges are all respected professionals, well recognized in the industry.
To maintain the highest level of fairness, none of the judges are employed by
Professional Photographer magazine. For a variety of reasons, Professional Photographer
does not disclose the identity of the judges, though individual judges may chose
to identify themselves during the judging process. A plurality of votes determines
the winner of a category.



Tamron's new super telephoto zoom lens began shipping this August. The new high-performance
Di model has a telephoto range of 500mm and is a proud new addition to the Tamron
SP-series. Featuring such accessories as a filter effect controller (FEC), which
enables easy control of the PL filter even when a hood is attached, and a detachable
tripod mount, the lens comes equipped with everything necessary for capturing
quality sports and wildlife photographs. In addition, to meet the needs of this
dual-format world (silver-halide and digital), the optical system of the lens
is designed to provide optimum performance when used with the latest digital
SLR cameras that are becoming more popular than ever.

Tamron
USA, Inc. has announced the launch of a newly redesigned AF28-300mm F/3.5-6.3
XR Di Aspherical (IF) MACRO (model A061), a high power zoom lens now featuring
"Di" (Digitally Integrated) design. The "Di" design
is achieved by 1) improving our BBAR coatings to a new multi-coating that
encompasses all of the benefits of the original but now further reduces
the ghosting and flare caused by aberrations, and 2) by further enhancing
our already stringent quality control system. The new AF28-300mm Di is
redesigned as a high power zoom lens now ideal for use with interchangeable-lens
digital cameras as well as film cameras. It provides an angle of view
equivalent to that of approx. 465mm ultra telephoto when used with a digital
camera and enables you to enjoy creative composition of images at the
28mm wideangle setting when used with a 35mm film camera. "SP"
(Super Performance) is a designation Tamron puts on lenses featuring superior
specifications and outstanding optical performance.

If a picture is worth 1,000 words, a how-to video must be as good as a book,
especially if it compresses the knowledge contained in a 45-minute lecture into
a concise, well-focused, viewer-friendly 4-minute format you can download to
your iPod or computer and view again and again. That's the exciting concept
behind the incisive, entertaining, and informative new podcasts posted in the
Tamron Pro Learning Center at www.tamron.com.

Tenba's Air Case line of lightweight, shippable equipment transport cases
has been enhanced by the introduction of an exclusive Datapanel identification
system that facilitates faster, easier and more reliable shipping, tracking,
tracing and identification. The new feature will be supplied as standard equipment
on those Air Case models and sizes typically used for equipment shipping, rental
houses and similar applications. The Datapanel consists of a durable, rubberized
assembly secured to the case with military-grade, seatbelt-type webbing and
heavily reinforced nylon stitching. Massive #10 YKK zippers on both sides pull
down from beneath a protective Velcro closure flap to open the panel and access
its features. The most prominent of these features is a large, clear vinyl shipping
window that securely holds, protects and clearly presents a standard FedEx or
UPS-type waybill, eliminating the need to tape or otherwise fasten shipping
documents to the case. As a result, preparation time is reduced, the need for
messy and unreliable tape is eliminated, documents are far more secure, and
the overall appearance and presentation of the case is cleaner and more professional.
The shipping window itself is instantly user-replaceable if needed, but--like
the entire Datapanel assembly-- is built to withstand the rigors of regular
shipping, baggage handling and long-term professional use.

Tenba has added several new products to its popular Shootout collection of professional
photo/laptop carrying cases. Three new outdoor-oriented shoulder bags and a
unique Photo/Laptop Courier bag join the current range of Shootout backpacks,
waistpacks, rolling duffels and accessories.



The new shoulder bags are available in small, medium and large sizes, covering
a broad range of carrying needs, from a single SLR and lens to a full-sized

easily customized, well-padded interiors, front and side accessory pockets,
and -- as with other bags in the Shootout Collection -- a removable
media wallet and a phone/MP3 player pouch. These accessories are tethered within
the side pockets for security, or can be removed and attached to various points
on the bags, or worn as separate pouches on any belt.
