Delkin Devices, Inc. has announced the SensorScope£ System, said by the
company to be the safest and most effective system for cleaning your digital SLR
image sensor. The SensorScope (patent pending) is the first and only sensor inspection
device in the market designed for DSLRs. Its use of magnification and focused,
high intensity light enables camera owners to inspect their camera's sensor
to see if it needs cleaning.

SensorScope looks like a camera lens; however, it allows you to look back into
your camera to inspect your sensor. The SensorScope is easily portable and provides
a 5x magnification lens and 4 ultra bright LED lights, which are focused to completely
illuminate the field of inspection. Although specifically designed for Canon and
Nikon DSLRs, the SensorScope may be used on any manufacturer's DSLR.

The SensorScope system includes the new DigitalDuster cleaning kit with the SensorVac,
SensorWand£ and SensorSolution.

Four different types of contaminants can show up on your DSLR camera sensor. These
vary by their chemical components. The most common types of debris that show up
are dry, and look like dust. This "dust" can be made up of one of
four materials:

· Silica/Quartz: these hard particles such as rock or sand can easily cause

· Metallic: hard particles such as metal shavings from the manufacturing
of the camera

· Fiber: synthetic materials such as nylon

· Organic: pollen, skin cells, and similar material

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
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 (
