Leaf has debuted its new Leaf Aptus S-Series at Photokina. The three new digital
camera backs: Leaf Aptus 75S, Leaf Aptus 65S, and Leaf Aptus 54S-- feature
record-breaking speed rates and unlimited burst depths.



The Leaf Aptus S-Series camera backs have the capability to deliver exceptional
shooting speeds from 0.8 seconds per frame--or as many as 75 frames per
minute--with unlimited burst depths. The design incorporates advanced,
accelerated image-processing hardware, including a new, lossless image-compression
engine, designed to achieve record-breaking speeds. Leaf has significantly accelerated
shooting speed by doubling the CCD sensor readout speed, and has also doubled
the buffer size to effectively support unlimited burst depths. The new S-Series
maximizes the newest Sandisk CompactFlash Extreme IV card technology for portable
shooting. The camera backs support the latest Firewire 800 standard for data
transfer of up to 800Mbps and sensitivity levels up to 800 ISO.



The Leaf Aptus is the world's first and only camera back with a built-in
6 x 7 cm touch screen LCD. This design innovation enables professional photographers
to work intuitively, accessing any point on the RAW image with one touch for
quick evaluation. The large touch screen gives one-tap access to a range of
essential functions and predefined settings that are typically needed before
and during a photo shoot. The interface can be accessed in six languages, including
Chinese and Japanese.



New Leaf Capture 10 versions for PC and Intel Mac

The latest version of Leaf Capture 10.1 now includes live video, a new temperature
slider, and additional new features. Leaf is also launching a PC version of
Leaf Capture 10. Designed for simplicity, the Leaf Capture 10 application is
the ideal shooting partner for professional photographers. The software supports
real-time adjustment and perfection of images while the photos are being taken,
using one clear, simple window to perform the tasks and view the results. With
the ability to view Leaf RAW images 1:1, photographers can see the true data
from their shots and check essential settings. The ease and efficiency of this
operation deliver significant timesavings and productivity gains.



At the show Leaf is showcasing three demonstration studios to represent a commercial
studio, a fashion shoot, and a surprise main attraction.

Delkin Devices, Inc. has introduced the eFilm Archival Gold "300-Year" CD-R. eFilm Archival Gold CD-R's incorporate patented Phthalocyanine (thalo-sy-a-neen)
dye and a 24k gold reflective layer into every CD-R. The innovative materials
found in eFilm Archival Gold CD-R's are said to make them one of the most
reliable storage mediums available. According to Delkin, CD-R's are known
to deteriorate quickly due to earth's common elements: ultra violet light,
heat, and humidity. Using an accelerated aging process to test the longevity
of CD-R media, eFilm Archival Gold CD-R's have been shown to safely store
your images for more than 300 years.

Fujifilm U.S.A., Inc. is pleased to announce plans to re-introduce an ISO 50 Fujichrome
Velvia professional film, tentatively named Velvia II. Fujichrome Velvia (RVP
50) was the first high color saturation, high contrast transparency E-6 compatible
film when it was introduced in 1990 and was a favorite among photographers. Its
discontinuation was announced last year due to difficulties in procuring some
of the raw materials used to produce the emulsion.



As a result, Fujifilm research and development teams have developed substitute
raw materials and new manufacturing technologies that enable the company to restart
production. The new film is expected to be available in late spring 2007. The
characteristics of the new emulsion will mirror that of the previous product.

Lexar
Media, Inc. Has announced its new ExpressCard SSD with auto-backup software.
Roughly half the size of current PC Card solutions, the Lexar ExpressCard SSD
is a high-capacity removable solid state drive (SSD) that delivers high-performance,
lower-cost storage expansion to notebook computers. The Lexar ExpressCard SSD
comes bundled with auto-backup software, an innovative solution for protecting
laptop computer files and data that allows for automatic regular (daily, weekly,
or monthly) backup without user intervention after the initial setup. During
this setup, the user will be able to set the folder and specific file types
to be included or excluded from the backup process. In addition, this automatic
backup software can also support multiple computers by recognizing the computer
name and the appropriate backup setting for each computer.



The Lexar ExpressCard SSD is also ideal for use with Windows Vista as it is
enhanced for use with ReadyBoost, a Vista feature that improves your system
performance without having to add DRAM to your computer. The ExpressCard SSD
serves as an additional memory cache, which is a reserve section of memory that
the computer can access faster than if it were accessing data from the hard
disk drive. Additionally, the ExpressCard SSD interface supports a direct connection
to the chipset, allowing users to enjoy all of its extensive backup and ReadyBoost
capabilities without having to unplug the card after every use; users simply
keep their ExpressCard SSD in the slot as external storage.



The Lexar ExpressCard SSD is shipping in 4GB, 8GB, and 16GB capacities.
