Microsoft Corp., together with leading companies in the digital imaging industry,
today announced enhancements to the family of Windows operating systems that will
enable consumers to easily work with RAW files in current and future versions
of Windows. Working closely with digital imaging industry leaders including Adobe
Systems Inc., Canon Inc., Fuji Photo Film Co. Ltd. and Nikon Corp., Microsoft
plans to deliver native support for digital camera RAW images in the next major
version of Windows, code-named "Longhorn."



In addition, Microsoft is enhancing the digital imaging experience for Windows
XP with the upcoming availability of the Microsoft RAW Image Thumbnailer and Viewer
for Windows XP, allowing consumers to view thumbnails and preview and print Canon
and Nikon RAW files from Windows Explorer in Windows XP. These features, as well
as the ability to organize and edit Canon and Nikon RAW files, will also be available
in a future version of Digital Image Suite.



Microsoft also announced it is developing a certification program for third-party
RAW image codecs that will ensure their solutions provide a consistent experience
for consumers who are using RAW image files. With this new RAW support across
the Windows platform and products, Microsoft is enabling a seamless experience
for consumers working with RAW digital images and delivering an extensible architecture
for hardware and software industry partners.



Microsoft worked with imaging leaders to develop the digital camera RAW architecture
in "Longhorn" and to provide the best digital photography experience
for Windows consumers. "Longhorn" will deliver dramatic innovation
in RAW support for independent software developers, camera manufacturers and consumers.
Hardware and software partners will benefit from the standardized architecture
for image codecs, which allows them to contribute their own codecs to be certified
and implemented in Windows.



Microsoft's platform approach provides built-in support for RAW files, enabling
Windows-based applications to use all supported image types, including RAW. This
architecture enables software applications to seamlessly support new image types
upon codec certification by Microsoft. In addition, "Longhorn" will
provide an application programming interface (API) that enables software vendors
to exercise a higher degree of control over the RAW conversion in their applications,
while enabling market opportunities for professional-level conversion tools.



In addition to announcing the imaging enhancements planned for the next version
of Windows, Microsoft is helping Windows XP consumers realize the potential of
RAW files. The Microsoft RAW Image Thumbnailer and Viewer for Windows XP will
soon be available for free download* at http://www.microsoft.com.

Kingston Technology Company, Inc.will feature renowned Brazilian photographer
Claudio Edinger on its Icons of Photography Web site. Frequently referred to
as the "Master of the Essays" for his natural ability to tell a
complete and detailed story through photographs, Edinger will share some of
the techniques he feels have made him successful and believes can be applied
to anyone. Edinger will also share his thoughts on digital imaging and how it
has changed his professional career--becoming an essential and exclusive part
of his equipment lineup.



This month, Edinger shares some of his thoughts, philosophies and shooting styles
which allow him to separate his commercial photography from the journalism he
finds himself doing for TIME Magazine and other news publications.



"For my personal work," said Edinger, "I like to photograph
small universes, where the human element is special, even exceptional and I
can stop and talk to the people. With my work, I try to understand what the
human being is, why we are here, and mainly, who I am. The journalistic pictures,
on the other hand, require agility and quickness, especially with specific assignments."



"Digital imaging has changed the way I shoot and the way I see,"
Edinger continued. "I rely on different things today, including my Kingston
media cards. When I was shooting film, I had a favorite type like many photographers.
Media cards today are no different. It really comes down to who you trust so
you can concentrate on the art."



"When it comes to equipment, the real key is what you feel comfortable
using and trust to help you get the job done," said Jaja Lin, Flash memory
marketing manager, Kingston. "Kingston's reputation and longstanding
heritage as a worldwide leader and provider of `everything memory'
has become the basis for the relationship with world class photographers we
enjoy today. It is a great honor to be associated with these photographers--and
a great responsibility. And certainly one we don't take lightly,"
added Lin.



Born in Rio de Janeiro and raised in Sao Paulo, Edinger moved to New York when
he was 24 years old. After 30 years of admiring Rio, Edinger released the book
"Rio," nominated as one of the best of the year by Photo District
News in 2001 and American Photo magazine in 2003. At that time, Edinger defined
the photo essay as, "An attempt of picking up the dream, the utopia, that
place where, as the chamber of secret of each one of us, where we go to reload
ourselves to continue. The place where we get undressed and find ideally the
fraternity and the sameness: the beach."



Every month Kingston spotlights a world-class photographer who provides helpful
tips and interesting anecdotes for taking better pictures. Photographers previously
featured at Kingston.com include Colin Finlay, Douglas Kirkland, Barbara Bordnick,
Chris Rainier, Peter Read Miller, Gerd Ludwig and Harry Benson. These accomplished
Icons of Photography deliver useful suggestions that photo enthusiasts at all
levels can apply to their own photography as they learn to make digital imaging
a natural part of their workflow, or learn a unique process or trick the Icon
has provided to give them a competitive edge.



Kingston will introduce a new photographer with their featured photographic
tip, gallery of images, calendar of events and biography around the 15th of
each month. Photographers and consumers can read the latest tips and view images
by visiting http://www.kingston.com/digitalmedia/iop
