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.

shooting rate to 8 frames per second (up to 35 consecutive JPEGs or 26 NEFs)

Phase One and SanDisk Corporation are helping photographers to realize the benefits
of shooting in RAW. All SanDisk Extreme III CompactFlash cards now include a full
and free edition of Phase One's Capture One LE RAW Workflow software. Capture
One LE normally retails at $99.



The bundle of the two products will enable photographers that shoot in JPEG to
easily join their professional peers in working in RAW. Extreme III users who
already shoot RAW images can now process their images in the industry leading
Capture One at no additional charge.



Purchase of Extreme III CompactFlash cards also offers upgrades from Capture One
LE to Capture One PRO at a 15 per cent discount. Upgrades can be purchased through
Phase One's on-line store at www.phaseone.com.




The RAW file format has transformed digital photography. A RAW file contains the
original, unprocessed data from a camera's image sensor. Unlike shooting in JPEG,
where camera settings are recorded and fixed at the time of capture, shooting
in RAW enables photographers to make post capture changes to the many exposure
settings including the linearity, matrix processing, white point, color balance,
sharpening, contrast, brightness, color space and saturation.



The Capture One LE license bundled with Extreme III cards works for both Windows
and Mac operating systems and includes 2 computer activations and one free LE
to LE update.



This is the second bundling collaboration between Phase One and SanDisk. All of
Phase One's P-series digital camera backs, including the P 45, P 30 and P 21 products,
are bundled with the award winning SanDisk Extreme III Compact Flash storage cards
and accommodating USB readers.



Customers can find more detailed information on how to download, install and activate
the Capture One LE license by referring to the coupon enclosed in the SanDisk
Extreme III packaging or at www.phaseone.com/sandisk.




More information about SanDisk's Extreme III cards is available at www.sandisk.com/highperformance.

One year after the announcement of the IMAGELINK print system -- a specification
designed to simplify at-home picture printing -- new cameras and printers
supporting the standard are being released. Joining a host of KODAK EASYSHARE
cameras and printer docks already released this year, Olympus has announced the
Camedia C315 zoom digital camera, the D555 zoom digital camera and ILP-100 printer
dock which are all IMAGELINK compatible.



"The IMAGELINK print system is one of the world's most important digital
photography advancements for consumers and we at Olympus are very pleased to be
among the first to introduce products compatible with this system," said
Mr. Bang Il Seok, director, Marketing Division Manager of Olympus Imaging Corp.




Millions of consumer digital cameras from Eastman Kodak Company, Konica Minolta
Photo Imaging, Inc., Nikon Corporation, Olympus Corporation, Pentax Corporation,
Ricoh Co., Ltd. and Sanyo Electric Co., Ltd. will provide effortless, one-touch
picture printing from snapshot printers that incorporate the IMAGELINK print system,
including new KODAK EASYSHARE printer docks.



A consumer Web site dedicated to the IMAGELINK print system went live earlier
this year. The site -- www.imagelinkprintsystem.com
-- includes links to compatible digital camera and printer information, an
animated presentation to help people visualize the camera-printer connection,
frequently asked questions and news related to the specification.
