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/.

Jobo AG announces today the immediate availability of a firmware update to
its award-winning GIGA Vu PRO evolution digital image storage and viewing device.
This firmware 2.0.4 update includes the new JD Loupe, Incremental Back-up and
increased RAW Format compatibility and is available for free download at http://www.jobo.com/jobo_service/digital/index.html.
In addition, all GIGA Vu PRO evolution units shipped from now on will feature
this latest firmware.



The new JD Loupe (the brain child of National Geographic photographer and loyal
GIGA Vu PRO evolution user Jay Dickman) provides users of this mobile image
storage device with a button in the unit's zoom menu that causes a magnified
rectangular loupe to appear on the LCD screen so photographers can closely examine
important details of their pictures.



In addition there is a new easy-to-use one-touch-software-update called Incremental
Back-up (the brain child of wildlife photographer and loyal GIGA Vu PRO evolution
user Andy Rouse). This update allows users who transfer the data stored on their
GIGA Vu PRO evolution via Incremental Back-up to an external storage device
such as the Jobo GIGA one, to automatically synchronize the data on both devices
with just one touch. The new data will be added to the external device without
deleting any already existing data on the device.



With this new update, the GIGA Vu PRO evolution now features RAW compatibility
with even more camera models from manufacturers including Canon, Casio, Contax,
Fuji, Hasselblad, Kodak, Konica Minolta, Leica (the GIGA Vu PRO evolution can
decode the Leica M8 RAW), Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Pentax, Samsung, Sigma,
and Sony. And Jobo continues to test more camera models for compatibility on
a regular basis at the request of their customers. A full list of currently
compatible camera models is available on the Jobo AG Web site (www.jobo.com).

If a picture is worth 1,000 words, a how-to video must be as good as a book,
especially if it compresses the knowledge contained in a 45-minute lecture into
a concise, well-focused, viewer-friendly 4-minute format you can download to
your iPod or computer and view again and again. That's the exciting concept
behind the incisive, entertaining, and informative new podcasts posted in the
Tamron Pro Learning Center at www.tamron.com.
