Delkin Devices, Inc. has announced the SensorScope£ System, said by the
company to be the safest and most effective system for cleaning your digital SLR
image sensor. The SensorScope (patent pending) is the first and only sensor inspection
device in the market designed for DSLRs. Its use of magnification and focused,
high intensity light enables camera owners to inspect their camera's sensor
to see if it needs cleaning.



The
SensorScope looks like a camera lens; however, it allows you to look back into
your camera to inspect your sensor. The SensorScope is easily portable and provides
a 5x magnification lens and 4 ultra bright LED lights, which are focused to completely
illuminate the field of inspection. Although specifically designed for Canon and
Nikon DSLRs, the SensorScope may be used on any manufacturer's DSLR.



The SensorScope system includes the new DigitalDuster cleaning kit with the SensorVac,
SensorWand£ and SensorSolution.



Four different types of contaminants can show up on your DSLR camera sensor. These
vary by their chemical components. The most common types of debris that show up
are dry, and look like dust. This "dust" can be made up of one of
four materials:



· Silica/Quartz: these hard particles such as rock or sand can easily cause
scratches

· Metallic: hard particles such as metal shavings from the manufacturing
of the camera

· Fiber: synthetic materials such as nylon

· Organic: pollen, skin cells, and similar material

the evolving technology and the user, providing carrying solutions that make

or a video camera. All exterior zippers are designed with a reverse closure
system creating an external and internal water-resistant cover. The GOPIX 77
also features exterior zippered side pockets, an internal zippered mesh pouch
and a zippered back pocket. The GOPIX 77 has external dimensions of 6 1/2 "(L)
x 5" (W) x 10" (H) and internal dimensions of 6 1/4" (L) x

DigiGear, Inc.'s EZ3D Photo Print gives anyone the ability to take any
digital photo and turn it into a 3D photo in three EZ steps and in just minutes.
EZ3D Photo Print comes complete with everything you need to get started. (However,
you will need a Windows based computer, and photo-quality printer, and photo
paper works best.) At the center of the product is the EZ3D Photo Print software,
which is compatible with Windows 98, 2000, ME and XP operating systems. Once
loaded on the PC, all you have to do is to open the EZ3D software, select your
image you wish to make 3D and import the image into the EZ3D software. Then
the next step is to use the built-in rendering tool to outline the item in the
photo you wish to make 3D. After you have done this, all you do is hit "print"
and your EZ3D image will print out on your printer. Now just take this digital
print and mount it behind the included EZ3D Photo lens and place it in the EZ3D
frame and you now have your favorite EZ3D photo.

digital rights management tracking, online image backup and free visual watermarking.
The new MyPictureMarc 2005 plug-in is immediately available for download at www.digimarc.com/mypicturemarc,
supporting all current Adobe Systems (NASDAQ: ADBE) Photoshop 7 and higher products,

Digimarc Corporation (NASDAQ: DMRCE) today announced the public beta of Digimarc
Image Search, an innovative desktop search tool designed for the rapidly growing
digital photography market.



The free tool, downloadable from Digimarc's website at www.digimarc.com/mypicturemarc/imagesearch,
works in conjunction with popular desktop search tools such as Google Desktop
Search, MSN Desktop Search, and Yahoo! Desktop Search, enhancing the image search
capabilities of these tools. Current desktop search tools have limited image search
capabilities, typically looking for the file name in the header of an image, which
can be easily changed or forgotten. Most professional and many consumer photographs
are distributed today in digital form with an extensive array of associated information
or "metadata" carried within the image files.



Digimarc Image Search works with and extends existing desktop search tools by
enabling users to more quickly and effectively find images stored on a computer
based on such information or "metadata" embedded into digital images,
including keywords, copyright information and digital rights data; and identify
image copyright holders and facilitate image licensing by accessing Internet services,
where available, that connect to an image owner's website or Digimarc's
image registry, which is available to users of Digimarc MyPictureMarc and ImageBridge
digital watermarking software.



This beta release supports web updates for images from the Corbis stock photography
library and for all other images that use Digimarc digital watermarking products.




Digital photography is often digitally watermarked by its owners using Digimarc
software for a variety of purposes, including copyright protection, facilitation
of licensing, and the monitoring of Internet marketing programs. The Digimarc
software enables users to embed an imperceptible digital watermark that identifies
the image's owner and registers that image in the Digimarc online registry.
For images with embedded digital watermarks, Digimarc Image Search can retrieve
current and dynamic information about the pictures from Internet resources; for
example, identification of the owner of rights to facilitate licensing or additional
keywords to improve search results. More information on Digimarc digital imaging
products can be found at: www.digimarc.com/mypicturemarc.

Digimarc Image Search Beta is available now as a free download at www.digimarc.com/mypicturemarc/imagesearch. ...
