Delkin Devices, Inc. has expanded CompactFlash card storage capacity and speed
for digital cameras by announcing its 16GB UDMA enabled CompactFlash PRO card.
This latest addition to Delkin's Compact Flash PRO line boosts fast read/write
speeds-up to 305x (45MB/sec sustained transfer speed capability). Now photographers
using UDMA enabled cameras such as the Canon 1Ds Mark III, Nikon D300 and Nikon
D3X have a memory card that can maximize the full benefits of their camera investment.



Photographers without UDMA enabled digital cameras and camera backs can apply
the technology's benefits to their workflow process right away. The enhanced card-to-computer
transfer times are striking. Delkin's UDMA CompactFlash Pro cards, when used with
the company's UDMA enabled FireWire reader and adapters, dramatically reduce the
time needed to download digital image files to a computer.

Sigma
has announced a large aperture, standard prime lens with claimed superior peripheral
brightness and corrected sagittal coma flare, ideal for all digital SLR cameras.
The lens is perfectly suited for a wide range of subjects enabling outstanding,
sharply defined images against a nicely blurred background. The fast, F1.4 aperture
makes this lens desirable for use with Digital SLR cameras; it effectively becomes
an 80mm medium telephoto lens on digital cameras with APS-C size image sensors.
The optimum optical design and molded glass aspherical lens elements provide
excellent correction for all types of aberrations. The super multi-layer lens
coating reduces flare and ghosting. Superior optical performance is also ensured
throughout the focusing range. This lens has a minimum focusing distance of
45cm (17.7") and has maximum magnification of 1:7.4. It creates a very
attractive blur, even when a small aperture is used. It incorporates HSM (Hyper
Sonic Motor), which ensures a quiet and high-speed AF as well as full-time manual
focus override.

Leica Camera AG has announced that it will provide a free firmware update for
the LEICA DIGILUX 3 on its website www.leica-camera.com.
The new firmware for the LEICA DIGILUX 3 optimizes the functionality of the
camera across many applications. This will include additional exposure functions
and will, for the first time, offer a "Mode 3" for optical stabilization.
Mode 3 will further compensate and correct longitudinal camera movement. This
mode is ideal for panning, a method of taking photographs where the camera follows
a moving object.



Version 2.0 will also include a new mode that facilitates the viewing of the
LCD monitor during use of the LiveView function. This setting will assist the
photographer when the camera is held in a position close to ground level. Further
improvements include the "Auto Review" setting, a Replay Zoom, easier
accessibility to the ISO setting in Auto Exposure (AE) mode, as well as further
improvements to camera operation and user interface.



Detailed information on the firmware update for the LEICA DIGILUX 3 will be
available at www.leica-camera.com in the Photography/D-System/Digilux 3 section
beginning in mid June 2007.
