Californa SUNBOUNCE reflective panels come in various sizes (30”x35”, 35”x49”, 35”x7”, 51”x7”, 51”x74” and 70”x96”), shapes, and colors (silver/pearl white, zebra/pearl white and black/ultrabounce) which produce different kinds of lighting moods. The SUN-BOUNCE PRO panel weighs probably less than a professional camera (4pds or 1.800 gramm). Because the frames keep the material taut one gets more light and greater surface coverage per frame size. The 3-dimensional frame is handcrafted in Germany and made from best aluminum; the synergy of frame and screen gets its super-tension by the permeable elastic screen material used. All the screens are made from the finest reflective and translucent materials available. The cross bar on the back of the frame and the hand-holds on the side of the reflectors make it easy to grip. Unwanted breaks because of unstable conditions (e.g., when the sun is in and out) can be avoided by flipping over the double-sided panel to the other side of the screen. SUNBOUNCE reflectors can create strobe light, video light, sunlight or any kind of light for video-interviews, photo-portrait-shootings, sports-, action- and press-photography, commercials and live coverages.

SanDisk Corporation (NASDAQ: SNDK) has says it set a new speed record of 30
megabytes per second for SD flash memory cards with the introduction of the
SanDisk Extreme III 30MB/s Edition line of SDHC Cards. The new cards, expected
to be available worldwide in September in 4-gigabyte (GB), 8GB and 16GB capacities,
are designed to deliver peak performance when used with the new digital single-lens
reflex (DSLR) camera, Nikon D90.



The Nikon D90 is the industry's first DSLR camera to support SanDisk Extreme
III 30MB/s Edition SDHC cards at increased performance. Featuring a 50-percent
speed boost from previous 20MB/s cards, the new SanDisk Extreme III 30MB/s Edition
SDHC card makes it possible to record 39 images in continuous shooting mode
at 4.5 frames per second with a file size of 6.0 MB JPEG L Fine per image.3
The Nikon D90 camera captures high-resolution, 12.3 megapixel still images,
and it is Nikon's first DSLR to offer movie recording capability.



With ever-increasing technology advancements in DSLR cameras, higher megapixel
growth and new video capturing capabilities, SanDisk Extreme III 30MB/s SDHC
cards make it easy for consumers to capture and store more high-resolution images
and video content. When placed in SanDisk's new ImageMate Multi-Card USB
2.0 Reader/Writer, still images and video can be transferred from the new SDHC
card to a computer up to 30MB/s, greatly reducing the waiting time to offload
large files from the card to the computer.



Beyond their high capacities and performance levels, all SanDisk Extreme III
cards are capable of functioning in extreme temperatures, from -13 to 185 degrees
Fahrenheit or -25 to 85 degrees Celsius. The cards also carry a lifetime limited
warranty. SanDisk Extreme III SDHC 30MB/s Edition cards, which have a Class
6 performance rating, are fully backwards-compatible; working in any camera,
card reader or other device that supports SDHC cards.6



Pricing and Availability

SanDisk Extreme III SDHC 30MB/s Edition cards are expected to be available worldwide
in September. The manufacturer's suggested retail price is U.S. $64.99
for the 4GB card, US $109.99 for the 8GB card, and U.S. $179.99 for the 16GB
card.

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.
