Panasonic has announced a new firmware update for its interchangeable LEICA
D SUMMILUX 25mm/ F1.4 ASPH.(L-X025) lens, which is compatible with the Four
Thirds standard digital single-lens reflex (SLR) cameras, including Panasonic's
LUMIX DMC-L10. With the firmware update, the LEICA D SUMMILUX 25mm/ F1.4 ASPH.(L-X025)
adds contrast auto focus (AF) to the single focal length lens, making it more
suitable for taking snapshots and portraits where the photo subject is able
to stand out due to an intentional out-of-focus background.



Panasonic invites all users of LEICA D SUMMILUX 25mm/ F1.4 ASPH.(L-X025) lenses
to download the updated firmware to enjoy this advanced technology that lets
users take high-quality photos with ease and accuracy. Notably, with the use
of the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-L10 digital SLR, this update allows the LEICA D SUMMILUX
25mm/ F1.4 ASPH.(L-X025) lens to take professional-quality portraits as it combines
Panasonic's Face Detection feature with the contrast AF.



Users will be able to download the latest firmware that allows the LEICA D SUMMILUX
25mm/ F1.4 ASPH.(L-X025) lens to take advantage of contrast AF at 4:00 GMT on
March 12, 2008 at the following link: http://panasonic.jp/support/global/cs/dsc/.

Crane & Company has introduced new, double sided Museo II, available exclusively
in 250 gsm and 365 gsm weights. This completely new, fine art matte paper is 100%
acid free and buffered with pure calcium carbonate to protect the paper from environmental
acidification throughout its lifetime. Museo II contains no fluorescent brightening
agents. It is made from 100% cotton fibers, which are the purest source of cellulose
and it's produced with micro-filtered, naturally occurring, Artesian well
water. Coated on both sides, Museo II is two-side printable. Museo II's
"felt" side has a subtle Velina finish. The "wire" or
smooth side has an even, smooth surface.



Museo II has a brightness of 91 and a Dmax of 1.65, using Epson Ultrachrome inks.
Significantly higher Dmax can be achieved with the use of dye inks. The company
claims that Museo II will produce the purest blacks and whitest whites of any
available inkjet paper without optical brighteners. When properly profiled and
printed on high-quality dye or pigment photo inkjet printers, it is said to produce
exceptionally smooth gradients and the widest gamut of competitive papers. MuseoII
is also a "forgiving" paper that will produce excellent results from
most desktop inkjet printers, using Crane's available profiles.

Casio, Inc. has introduced the EXILIM PRO EX-P700, with a 7.2 million megapixel
CCD and 4X optical zoom. The EX-P700 will be available for a MSRP $599.99. The
EX-P700 features a 4X optical zoom (coupled with 4X digital zoom), combined
with a large 2.0-inch LCD screen. The camera has a claimed start-up time of
approximately 2.0 seconds and a 0.01 second release time lag. The EX-P700 also
features a high speed continuous shooting function that can take 3 photos per
second up to 5 photos. New features include Flash Assist, which operates during
flash photography to compensate for underexposure in areas which are not reached
by flash and Auto Macro, which automatically switches between Macro mode and
AF mode. One of the most interesting features is what Casio calls Business Shot,
which compensates for photos taken at an angle and records them as though taken
from straight ahead. While exposure, white balance and focus position are quickly
set with a single press of the shutter, the multi-bracketing feature enables
a variety of shots with different color effects to be taken in combination with
the rapid shooting function.
