The MagFiber series of tripods and monopods comprise a revolutionary design, combining
the strength of magnesium and carbon fiber. Each leg is crafted from carbon fiber
using an exclusive, patented process. Under intense pressure, extra long carbon
fibers are combined with resin to produce a stronger tube that absorbs more vibration
than any other tripod in its class; all with a wall thickness of only 1.2mm. To
reduce slipping and rotation and more importantly to promote enhanced stability,
each tube is highlighted by a three faceted design.

Lexar has introduced Professional UDMA (Ultra Direct Memory Access) memory
cards, the latest addition to the company's Professional line of high-performance
cards. When paired with a UDMA-enabled device, such as Lexar's new Professional
FireWire 800 Reader, UDMA cards improve the professional photographer's
digital imaging experience by reducing the time needed to download captured
images to a destination computer. In addition, the benefits of Lexar Professional
UDMA memory cards extend well beyond card-to-computer transfer rates, to improved
in-camera performance in several UDMA-enabled digital camera backs and digital
SLR cameras expected to be announced later this year. Speed-rated at 300x, or
capable of a minimum sustained write speed of 45MB per second, and available
in capacities of 2GB, 4GB, and 8GB, new Lexar Professional UDMA cards deliver
a 125% performance improvement over Lexar's previous generation 133x CompactFlash®
product line when the card is used with a UDMA-enabled device.

The new PT-E03 housing is made specifically for Olympus' EVOLT E-410 D-SLR
camera. The E-410's housing is compatible with many of the Olympus Zuiko
Digital-Specific lenses and their respective underwater lens ports.



The new PPO-E05 underwater lens port is designed for the lightweight 14-42mm Zuiko
Digital-Specific lens, which is the perfect complement to the portable E-410 and
its underwater housing when diving. The versatile 14-42mm lens offers the most
common focal lengths, including wide angle and close focusing, making it an essential
tool for those recreational divers who want to capture images of their explorations.
Additionally, all other Olympus PPO Series underwater lens ports (including macro)
are compatible with Olympus' E-Series underwater housings.



New underwater housings have been created specifically for Olympus' recently
announced point-and-shoot cameras, including the SP-550 UZ, Stylus 770 SW, Stylus
760 and FE-230. These cameras also offer underwater scene modes.



For the first time, Olympus is offering an underwater flash (UFL-1) for use with
all new SP and Stylus camera housings introduced in 2007 as well as a majority
of its pre-existing digital compact camera housings. The new slave flash requires
no cables.



Other underwater accessories include an adjustable float strap, created specifically
for the Stylus SW Series, which enables the camera to float at the water's
surface and provides surfers, kayakers and other active swimmers with the ability
to strap the camera to their arm, freeing their hands when not taking photos.
The float strap boasts a vibrant red color for high visibility.



New silicone skins are also available for the Stylus 770 SW. While the camera
can reach depths of 10 meters (approximately 33 feet) without a skin or housing,
the silicone skin provides a variety of stylish looks, offers improved handling
in the water and is perfect for avoiding scratches on the camera's body
from rocks or other rough surfaces. The new skins are available in three trendy
colors: orange, blue and clear.



The new Olympus underwater housings and accessories will be available at retailers
in June 2007. The new housings -- both compact and D-SLRs -- are for
use in depths down to 40 meters (approximately 133 feet). Comprehensive information
on the complete family of Olympus' underwater housings and accessories is
available at www.olympusamerica.com/underwater.

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.
