Polycolor, a professional photo lab in Essen, Germany has developed a unique
CRT based digital enlarger, the Variochromat. This machine is capable of exposing
onto all photographic materials, including traditional fiber-based paper for
black and white prints.



The Variochromat is based on a high resolution cathode ray tube (CRT) which
has a resolution of over 30 mega pixels with an 8-bit grayscale. The Variochromat
software is said to provide optimal tonal reproduction of grayscale digital
images, creating a profile for each size and material. Before actual production
starts, a stepwedge is processed and measured to guarantee consistent reproduction
of tonal values.

SanDisk Corporation will sponsor the Red Sea International Underwater Photo competition
in Eliat, Israel on April 24 -- 29. The contest is already attracting photographers
from all over the world, representing Denmark, Egypt, France, Germany, Israel,
Italy, Hungary, Poland, Philippines, Russia, Spain, Switzerland, Sweden, and the
USA.



The participating underwater photographers will have three days to shoot their
photographs before the submission deadline. In order to get the best shots, divers
usually dive to about 100 feet. The photographers are restricted to only 25 minutes
of shooting time per dive due to water pressure and air supply constraints. There
is no room for error. Fast read and write speeds with their digital film cards
as well as reliable, high capacity storage are needed because while submerged,
changing or replacing flash film cards is impossible and every shot taken is critical.




"The competition is the ideal platform to highlight the superior capabilities
of SanDisk Extreme™ III cards," said Tanya Chuang, SanDisk senior
retail product marketing manager. "SanDisk's professional photography
line is designed specifically for the market's need for high-speed flash
memory storage for the high-performance digital single lens reflex (SLR) cameras
that will be used in the competition. SanDisk Extreme III CompactFlash cards,
which range in capacity between 1 and 8 gigabytes (GB), are among the world's
fastest cards, with minimum write and read speeds of 20 megabytes per second (MB/sec.)
