From October 10-13, Nikon will sponsor 100 of the world's most promising young photojournalists in upstate New York for the 21st annual Eddie Adams workshop, also known as the “Barnstorm.” Seasoned professional photographers and photo editors will mentor the handpicked selection of students during the intense four-day workshop. This year, Barnstorm students will have the opportunity to try out Nikon’s new D3 and D700 professional digital SLR cameras as well as receive technical advice from Nikon experts available on-site.

“Nikon is proud to continue its tradition of educating the photographers and photojournalists of the future through the Eddie Adams Barnstorm Workshop,” said Bill Pekala, general manager of Nikon Professional Services, and Eddie Adams Workshop board member. “We at Nikon are honored to have the opportunity to provide these outstanding students with access Nikon's extensive line of high-quality cameras and precision lenses, as well as empower them with the photographic knowledge the world has come to expect from Nikon.”

To tailor the learning experience to the ever-changing industry, participants have access to a state-of-the-art digital photo and multimedia studio with all of the latest technologies. Additionally, Nikon will provide access to the D3 and new D700 digital SLR cameras, allowing these students to capture the world around them in stunning detail and clarity.

Barnstorm participants are the visionary photographers of tomorrow and will benefit from the experience and advice of professional mentors such as John White, Bill Epperidge, and Clay Patrick McBride. Other famous photographers available to Barnstorm participants include individuals from top-tier photojournalism publications such as National Geographic, Sports Illustrated, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Getty Images and The Associated Press.

During the workshop, the Barnstorm students are divided into ten teams, with each team paired with a photographer, an editor and a researcher. Each day consists of hands-on activities such as shooting and editing, as well as speeches and panel discussions. Over the course of the workshop, students are exposed to many types of photography including photojournalism, fine art photography, studio portraiture, underwater work, long-term projects, and conflict photography.

Following an overwhelmingly positive response the past two years, the multimedia workshop will continue as part of the core curriculum. With many news outlets and other publications expanding their offerings to include interactive slideshows and audio, students receive a crash course in the new media marketplace with access to the top multimedia editors in the country.

In addition to sponsoring the Barnstorm, this is the fifth year that Nikon will award a $10,000 scholarship to the top student from the Barnstorm XXI Workshop. A panel of judges selects a student based on the work he or she presents during the workshop. The scholarship money must be used by the winning student to further his or her education in the photographic arts field, and will be applied towards their tuition and/or housing at the college of attendance.

"For over 20 years, the Barnstorm Workshop has served as a vital tool for educating and inspiring the photographers of the future,” said Alyssa Adams, executive director, Eddie Adams Workshop. “With an alumni base of over 2,000 members, it is their continued passion and love for communicating through vivid imagery that has laid the foundation for this year's Barnstorm class and we are proud to continually renew the tenets of powerful photojournalism and photography."

Intel Corporation announced today it has begun shipping Intel X18-M and X25-M Mainstream SATA Solid-State Drives (SSDs) based on multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash technology for laptop and desktop computers. The new high-performing data storage devices give computer buyers a new level of system responsiveness in a lightweight, rugged, low-power package that can replace traditional hard disk drives.

Validated for Intel-based computers, the X18-M is a 1.8-inch drive and the X25-M a 2.5-inch drive, offering several advantages over hard drives including faster overall system response, boot and resume times. With no moving parts, SSDs run cooler and quieter and are a more reliable option than hard drives. In addition, SSDs remove input/output (I/O) performance bottlenecks associated with hard disk drives that help maximize the efficiency of Intel processors, such as the company’s Core family of products. For example, lab tests show that the Intel X18-M and X25M.

The Intel X18-M and X25-M Mainstream SATA SSDs are available in 80 gigabyte (GB) capacities, with 160GB versions sampling in the fourth quarter of this year. The 80GB drive achieves up to 250MB per second read speeds, up to 70MB per second write speeds and 85-microsecond read latency for fast performance. The 80GB version is priced at $595 for quantities up to 1,000. These SSDs are available now and end-customer products containing the Intel High-Performance SATA SSDs are expected to begin shipping in the next few weeks.

The company is also expected to introduce a line of single-level cell (SLC) SSDs for the server, storage and enterprise environments within the next 90 days. Called the Intel® X25-E Extreme SATA Solid-State Drive, these products are designed to maximize the Input/Output Operations Per Second (IOPS), which equates to higher performance and lower enterprise costs. Since SSDs lower energy consumption, maintenance, cooling and space costs, an SSD-based data center will reduce overall infrastructure costs while increasing performance-per-square-foot by as much as 50x.

Intel, the world's largest chip maker, is also a leading manufacturer of computer, networking and communications products. Additional information about Intel is available at www.intel.com/pressroom.
