The Panasonic DMC-L1 DSLR is Panasonic's first digital single lens reflex
camera. Priced at just under $2000 with a Leica D Vario Elmarit f/2.8-3.5 14-50mm
zoom lens (equivalent to 28-100mm in 35mm format) and 7+ megapixel sensor, it
is a member of the Four/Thirds family. That allows you to use any lens from
the Olympus and Sigma 4/3 mount offerings on the camera as well. It uses SD
cards, and takes the newest SDHC cards with greater storage capacity. And the
Leica lens uses Panasonic's OIS (optical image stabilization) that helps
you get steady shots in two to three less stops of light than usual when shooting
handheld. The body also has a Live View mode similar to the feature found in
Olympus' recent DSLRs.

There are many ways to work with monochrome images, including selective adjustment
of tonal values, contrast and even image color that can emulate toning. In this
installment of our Web How To's we'll play with colorization, adding
color to selective parts of a monochrome image that can make it look like a
combination hand-painted (with photo oils) and toned photograph. You can paint
in selectively with brush tools if you like, but this how-to deals with a more
simplified approach.

The New Pigment Ink Printers: How They Change Desktop Printing

by George Schaub

You wouldn't think that a small thing like changing the type of ink a
printer uses would have a profound effect on desktop photo printing, but that's
what the new products from Canon and HP might do. That change is offering pigment...

Elinchrom has introduced the Style 400 BX portable compact flash units. Two new
inexpensive kits, street priced at $995 and $1098, incorporate the latest innovations
in Multivoltage technology with all the accessories necessary to plug-in anywhere.



Featured in both kits, the EL 400 BXECON and EL 400 BX KIT, is the new Style BX
400 Multivoltage with automatic voltage detection from 90 V--260 V, a rapid
recycle time of 1 sec. in a lightweight monobloc weighing only 4.3 lbs.. Additionally,
both kits offer the new digitally stabilized 400BX monoblocs along with all the
lighting equipment and accessories necessary for capturing the most demanding
images while at the same time giving the photographer the ability to travel quick
and light. The EL 400BXKIT adds two Manfrotto light stands and a convenient Stand
Bag.



The new Style 400 BX Multivoltage compact flash unit features power ranges of
25 - 400 Ws and has the ability to work with 5 f-stops, ranging from 1/16 to 1/1.
The 400 BX is lightweight, weighing only 4.3 pounds (1.95 kg) and is compact for
in or out of studio use, with dimensions of 21 x 14cm (length x diameter). The
new head kit includes a plug-in omega flashtube precisely positioned 20 mm from
the internal reflector. The positioning helps avoid uneven illumination that often
results from non-concentric or U-shaped flashtubes.

High scene contrast always creates difficulties for photographers, whether
shooting film or digital. The difficulty stems from the difference between the
ways the film or sensor "sees" and how the human eye sees. Our eyes
are adaptive, and can resolve large variations in brightness by the way it scans
throughout the scene and the amazing reflex of automatically restricting and
dilating the pupil to adjust to bright and dark areas before us. While light
metering systems in cameras are impressive in the way they can read light, the
fact remains that at the moment of exposure the lens on a camera records a scene
at one fixed aperture, or opening. In most situations this is no problem, as
the meter averages light values and the bright and dark areas are distributed
through the recording medium properly. But high contrast presents a problem.

A
better solution is to use the --1 contrast setting. This
allows for smoother tonal gradations and addresses the need to
control the divergent light values in this backlit scene.
