While watching the sun set over Monument Valley on the Arizona/Utah border this past January, my shadow and that of two good friends fell across this sandstone boulder. Raising my camera (I'm in the middle), I not only recorded the grandeur of Monument Valley, but also embossed our shadows forever on this print as a reminder of this trip and our friendship.

Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE:EK) has introduced the world’s first consumer-available wireless picture frame featuring innovative Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) technology, a Kodak invention that produces exceptionally sharp and vivid image quality. OLED technology generates greater color depth and saturation than other displays, viewed on panels that are substantially thinner, resulting in a sleek, low-profile design.

The new KODAK OLED Wireless Frame also features built-in Wi-Fi technology that expands the user’s experience by enabling access to pictures, videos and music stored on PCs in other rooms, as well as connectivity to online photo and video sharing sites and Internet content portals for news, weather, sports and more.

At the heart of the new KODAK OLED Wireless Frame is an ultra-thin, 7.6-inch diagonal digital panel that produces stunning image detail, when viewed from any angle. The viewing experience is further enhanced by Kodak Perfect Touch technology, which automatically processes images to improve exposure, brightness and color, and KODAK Image Science, which optimizes image quality for display on OLED panels.

The KODAK OLED Wireless Frame requires no backlighting, and incorporates an ambient light sensor that optimizes the viewing experience by adjusting display brightness based on the surrounding light.  Kodak has also designed a premium audio system into the frame, providing outstanding sound reproduction when enjoying videos, digital music and online content.

The KODAK OLED Wireless Frame will retail for US $999 (MSRP) and will be available at kodak.com beginning in the 2008 holiday season, with additional online and retail distribution to be announced.

Nikon Inc. has introduced its newest flagship COOLPIX compact camera, the COOLPIX
P6000. Featuring 13.5 megapixels, a new, built-in global positioning system (GPS)
unit, my Picturetown connectivity and the power of Nikon's exclusive EXPEED image
processing concept, the P6000 offers the creative control of a DSLR in the compact
body of a COOLPIX camera.

The P6000 knows where the "best shots" are taken, thanks to the integration
of the new GPS unit. With the added GPS function, P6000 users will be able to
record "geotags" of the location where their images are captured based
on latitudinal and longitudinal coordinates. This further heightens the photographic
experience, allowing users to pinpoint the location via maps available in Nikon
ViewNX Software, my Picturetown, Nikon's photo sharing and storage website,
or any other software or website that recognizes GPS data.



Additionally, the P6000 makes my Picturetown connectivity for uploading and sharing
photos simple and easy, thanks to added wired LAN support via a dedicated Ethernet
port built into the camera. Users can upload their images and data directly from
the P6000 with an Ethernet cable to the secure Picture Bank service on my Picturetown.



In line with other COOLPIX P-Series cameras, the P6000 includes intuitive controls
via dedicated command and mode dials, providing easy access to shooting controls
and exposure mode settings. The P6000 offers Programmed Auto [P], Shutter-priority
Auto [S], Aperture-priority Auto [A] and Manual [M] modes granting users the ability
to tap into the creativity of D-SLR functions while maintaining the simplicity
of COOLPIX functionality. Owners can utilize two user-defined settings, a shooting
menu, an efficient, tabbed menu interface, as well as customizable Function buttons
to quickly switch between camera settings.



Additional shooting innovations engineered to maximize image quality and offer
greater control over the final results include Nikon's original COOLPIX
Picture Control System and a new NRW* (RAW) support. The COOLPIX Picture Control
System features intuitive controls that enable users to adjust their images to
pre-set parameters such as Standard, Neutral, Vivid and Monochrome and apply tweaks
to image sharpening, tone compensation, brightness, overall tone and saturation.
Furthermore, images shot in the all-new NRW* (RAW) format can be opened and viewed
in Nikon ViewNX Software (available early October 2008) for increased editing
abilities.



Adding even more synergy between D-SLR cameras and compact COOLPIX cameras, the
P6000 incorporates a pop-up flash, optical viewfinder for easy composition and
the added bonus of system expansion with an optional convertor, Speedlights, and
wireless remote control. Nikon's new 0.76x Wide-angle Convertor WC-E76 offers
users the option to utilize focal lengths as wide as 21mm (35mm format equivalent).
P6000 users can also take full advantage of Nikon's Creative Lighting System with
the built-in accessory shoe that supports Nikon's i-TTL flash control, which enables
wireless control over one group of remote Speedlights including the newly announced
SB-900 Speedlight.



The P6000 features a quality finish and a front panel constructed of solid Magnesium
alloy, as well as a comfortable grip and well-placed controls for streamlined
performance. The new P6000 camera is compatible with new high-capacity SDHC cards,
and utilizes a Nikon EN-EL5 rechargeable Li-ion battery. The P6000 also comes
bundled with the COOLPIX Software Suite for editing, organizing and sharing images.



The Nikon COOLPIX P6000 will be available nationwide beginning September 2008
at a MSRP of $499.95. For more information about the P6000 and other COOLPIX cameras,
please visit www.nikonusa.com.
