The limited edition camera (there will only be 600 made), which celebrates the 60th anniversary of Leica’s M series rangefinders, was unveiled by Dr. Andreas Kaufmann, Leica’s chairman, at a press conference at the photokina show in Germany this morning.

Lenovo has introduced the ThinkPad W700, a 17-inch widescreen mobile workstation
engineered with technologies and innovations to exceed the demands of the most
data and graphics-intensive users. Lenovo brings the industry's first built-in
digitizer and color calibrator to a mobile workstation and combines these innovations
with first-in-market technologies such as new NVIDIA Quadro FX mobile graphics
and supporting the upcoming Intel mobile quad core processor. Other features such
as optional dual hard drives with RAID configurations, up to 8 GB of high speed
DDR3 memory, a range of wireless connectivity options and excellent multimedia
capabilities including an optional Blu-ray DVD burner/player are said to make
the ThinkPad W700 mobile workstation the standard-bearer for power and performance
in a mobile workstation.



The
ThinkPad W700 mobile workstation has an optional built-in palm rest digitizer
and color calibrator. Lenovo and Intel collaborated to integrate the color calibrator
and digitizer into the ThinkPad W700 mobile workstation. Designed for digital
content creators and users, the mobile workstation's digitizer helps them
easily configure an image, either mapping it to the entire screen or to an area
defined by the user. High performance users, especially digital photographers,
will benefit from models with the built-in color calibrator. The calibrator automatically
adjusts the display's color in up to half the time of many external calibrators
and with higher accuracy, resulting in the most accurate, true-to-life images
in an integrated package. Together with the upcoming Intel mobile quad core processor,
multimedia designers and animators now have outstanding quad-core processor performance
and true color replication that is critical for realistic digital creations and
workflow efficiencies.



Supporting the latest Intel processor technologies including the upcoming mobile
quad core processor, the mobile workstation can be configured with up to 8 GB
of memory with an additional 2 GB of Intel Turbo Memory. Lenovo also offers models
with Intel vPro technology for complete manageability. The mobile workstation
can be equipped with dual internal hard drives, including solid state drive storage.
The ThinkPad W700 mobile workstation offers both the NVIDIA Quadro FX 2700M and
3700M Open GL graphics processors with up to 1 GB of dedicated video memory for
exceptional graphics performance in a 17-inch mobile workstation. The hard drives
can be configured for RAID 0 to help users access and save their data faster than
traditional disk-writing methods, or users can choose RAID 1 for mirrored data
redundancy.



The mobile workstation includes WiFi wireless connectivity. Additionally, users
can connect to other devices wirelessly using mobile workstation models featuring
Bluetooth and ultra wideband technology. Models supporting WiMAX will be available
later this year.

The late Mr. Newton was certainly onto something. I believe the overwhelming desire of most portrait photographers is to please the client, with seduction, amusement, and entertainment far from their minds. Let me submit this idea: shoot what the client says they want and then shoot something challenging their assumptions. Most wedding clients tend to be traditional but even introducing black and white or infrared images can increase sales and show clients you’re thinking outside the veil.

Tamron is a pioneer in all-in-one, do-everything lenses. Their new 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di PZD lens is designed for Canon, Nikon and Sony shooters and I tested the Canon EF version using an EOS 5D Mark I and an EOS 50D, which changes the lens’ angle-of-view to that of a 45-480mm lens.

Earlier this month we wrote about the website What The Lens that’s designed to help you choose a perfect lens for your type of photography. The catch is that site is limited to Canon shooters. But now the new website Lens vs. Lens helps you be a smarter shopper by comparing actual photos taken with Fuji, Nikon, Olympus, Sony and Leica lenses, as well as those made by Canon.
