Those seeking secure memory cards will be interested in Lexar's LockTight
cards and reader. The system encrypts login access to the LockTight card, but
not the file data. This means that the full 80X speed of the card is available.
Lexar says that the card cannot be accessed on any camera other than an authorized
LockTight camera or any computer that lacks the LockTight access and a correct
username and password. The system is comprised of four components: the LockTight
CompactFlash card (512MB or 2GB); a Lexar Professional CompcatFlash reader;
a LockTight enable camera; and the LockTight Admin and Access software. The
system has been designed to have what the company calls "zero impact"
on production workflow and requires only one-screen access.

The American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP), joined by the Graphic Artists Guild, the Picture Archive Council of America, the North American Nature Photography Association, Professional Photographers of America, photographers Leif Skoogfors, Al Satterwhite, Morton Beebe, Ed Kashi and illustrators John Schmelzer and Simms Taback, has filed a class action copyright infringement suit against Google, Inc. in the U.S. District for the Southern District of New York. The suit, which was filed by Mishcon de Reya New York LLP, relates to Google’s illegal scanning of millions of books and other publications containing copyrighted images and displaying them to the public without regard to the rights of the visual creators. ASMP and the other trade associations, representing thousands of members, decided to file the class action after the Court denied their request to join the currently pending $125 million class action that had previously been filed primarily on behalf of text authors in connection with the Google Library Project. The new class action goes beyond Google’s Library Project, and includes Google’s other systematic and pervasive infringements of the rights of photographers, illustrators and other visual artists.

Fujifilm U.S.A., Inc. is pleased to announce plans to re-introduce an ISO 50 Fujichrome
Velvia professional film, tentatively named Velvia II. Fujichrome Velvia (RVP
50) was the first high color saturation, high contrast transparency E-6 compatible
film when it was introduced in 1990 and was a favorite among photographers. Its
discontinuation was announced last year due to difficulties in procuring some
of the raw materials used to produce the emulsion.



As a result, Fujifilm research and development teams have developed substitute
raw materials and new manufacturing technologies that enable the company to restart
production. The new film is expected to be available in late spring 2007. The
characteristics of the new emulsion will mirror that of the previous product.
