How do digital
photographers handle thousands of pictures, maintain quality and efficiency in
their work, and stay competitive? Several leading digital photography companies
- including Extensis, GretagMacbeth, Lexar, Mirra, Nik Multimedia, Wacom, Microsoft,
Adobe, and Blue Pixel - have partnered together to address these questions. While
most professional seminars focus on the camera, editing, or printing, the Just
Show Me How seminar gives photographers the tools and knowledge they need to maximize
the effectiveness and efficiency of the complete digital process - after they've
taken the picture. The Just Show Me How Tour for professional photographers begins
in February 2005 and will visit 10 cities through April 2005.



The seminar will be taught by Rob Galbraith, professional photographer and digital
photography educator. Rob will guide attendees through the process of creating
an end-to-end solution that really works, using the best features of the hardware
and software available today. The goal of these seminars is to help serious and
professional photographers refine the process after the picture is taken, so that
they can direct their creative energies into what they really love - shooting
pictures.



Seminar Registration Details


Interested seminar attendees should visit www.justshowmehowpro.com
to register for an upcoming event. The cost to attend is $149 in advance or $169
for day of, walk-in registration. Check this web site for the seminar schedule,
which starts Feb 9.

PENTAX Imaging Company has announced the PENTAX K100D, which combines 6.1 effective
megapixels with a host of advanced technologies including a Shake Reduction
(SR) system to deliver high-quality digital SLR photography and user-friendly
operation to all levels of photographers. The PENTAX-developed Shake Reduction
(SR) system in the K100D effectively offers a two-stop advantage for sharp,
blur-free images even under difficult shooting conditions, such as using a telephoto
lens or shooting in low light without a flash.



The SR mechanism is designed to minimize camera shake by oscillating the CCD
image sensor vertically and horizontally at high speed using magnetic force,
while adjusting the speed of oscillation in proportion to the amount of camera
shake detected by a built-in sensor. As a result, the system does not require
special anti-shake lenses and can be used with almost all existing PENTAX interchangeable
lenses.



Also announced is the PENTAX K110D, an entry-level digital SLR camera, which
has all of the features of the K100D with the exception of Shake Reduction.
Both models reflect a new digital SLR naming system that references the reverse
compatibility that each body has with the legacy of PENTAX K-mount lenses. The
PENTAX K100D will ship along with the smc 18-55mm lens in July 2006 for $699.95
US, while the PENTAX K110D will ship along with the smc 18-55mm lens in August
2006 for $599.95 US.



Along with the two new SLR models, PENTAX announced the smc PENTAX DA 21mm F3.2
AL Limited interchangeable wide-angle lens. Previewed at PMA 2006 in Orlando,
the lens features a versatile angle of view and an ultra-thin, pancake design
that offers go-anywhere portability that is ideal for casual, day-to-day snapshot
photography. The latest lens inherits all the attributes of the acclaimed PENTAX
Limited lens series including high-quality image reproduction, distinctive visual
description, and high-grade lens-barrel finish. The smc PENTAX DA 21mm F3.2
AL Limited lens will ship in July 2006 for $549.95.
