Mitsubishi's Photo Imaging Division and X-Rite (NASDAQ: XRIT) today reaffirmed
their agreement to license ICC profiles created by X-Rite's MonacoPROFILER
software into Mitsubishi's family of digital photo printers. This agreement
provides professional photographers with higher levels of consistency and integration
between photographic printers and original images.


Mitsubishi Photo Imaging uses MonacoPROFILER software to build ICC profiles
for their key digital photo printers, all of which offer high speed, high resolution
photo quality prints. The ICC profiles greatly reduce the design-to-production
cycle, saving time and money. These ICC profiles can be downloaded from Mitsubishi's
website.



Mitsubishi digital photo printers provide high tech, valuable solutions to digital
photographers across the spectrum. From its economical CP-3020DU, a high speed,
high resolution printer that provides full 8 x 10 and 8 x 12 color prints, to
the high-end CP-9550DW, an ultra fast, large volume digital printer, Mitsubishi
Digital Electronics America offers a comprehensive line of digital printers
to fit any photographer's business.

Olympus has announced that it is developing a new interchangeable-lens digital SLR (single lens reflex) within the Olympus E-System lineup. This new Four Thirds-compliant camera reinforces the company’s commitment to the standard.

Positioned as a mid-level model, this new digital SLR camera is intended for anyone who wants to express their creativity through photography, whether they are just starting out or are a professional with years of experience behind them. Introduction of the new camera is expected in the first quarter of 2009.

At the last Photokina (September 2006), Olympus declared that the second chapter in the story of the Olympus E-System would begin in 2007. One of the highlights of this chapter was the incorporation of “Full-Time Live View” function as a standard function for the first time in the industry, adding to the excitement already generated by other distinctive features of the E-System such as the “100 percent Digital-Dedicated Design” and “Dust Reduction System.” Currently, the E-System lineup includes popular models such as the E-420 and E-520, as well as the flagship E-3. All of these cameras provide digital SLR users with the high-quality images, superior reliability and exceptional portability they need.

The prototype model displayed at Photokina is being developed as an advanced amateur model that will be positioned between the E-520 and E-3. In terms of quality and performance, however, there is nothing mid-level about this model. It will inherit all the outstanding features of the E-3 such as the high-speed autofocus system using an 11-point full twin-cross sensor and the built-in image stabilization mechanism with a correction effect of up to 5 EV steps1. Other highlights will include a new and updated feature to replace the current splash and dustproof function of the E-3.


With the introduction of this new camera, Olympus will expand its line of Four Thirds System-compliant digital SLR cameras, providing a wider range of choices to a wider range of users from serious amateurs to professionals.

The Olympus E-P1 is said to be the world’s smallest 12.3-megapixel interchangeable lens system camera that blends the high-quality still images of a digital single lens reflex (DSLR) with High Definition (HD) video, stereo Linear PCM audio recording and In-Camera Creativity within an ultra-portable body.

Olympus has a long history of miniaturizing camera technology. The first-generation Olympus PEN appeared in 1959 and led the way to high-quality images in a small package, matching SLR cameras’ performance of the era.Today, Olympus utilized its miniaturizing and engineering expertise to create a slimmer body, removing the optical viewfinder and mirror box found inside a traditional DSLR, to create a small but high-quality interchangeable lens camera. By reducing its lens mount diameter, Olympus also enabled the production of smaller and lighter lenses to match the E-P1’s body size.

 The camera’s retro-style metal body design is available in either silver or white with accompanying new small and lightweight Olympus M. ZUIKO Micro Four Thirds lenses: 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 (28-84mm equivalent) and 17mm f2.8 (34mm equivalent).

Leica Camera Incorporated will introduce a new collection of lenses for analog
and digital Leica rangefinder cameras: the Leica Summarit-M class. The four lenses
LEICA SUMMARIT-M 35mm f2.5, LEICA SUMMARIT-M 50mm f2.5, LEICA SUMMARIT-M 75mm
f2.5 and LEICA SUMMARIT-M 90mm f2.5 cover the most popular focal lengths in the
Leica M system. All Summarit-M lenses were designed and are manufactured in Germany
and will bear the "Made in Germany" quality stamp.



All letter and number engravings are made with the traditional "Leitz-Norm"
font as originally used by Leitz Wetzlar during the 1960s, and the red button
on the lens mount is consistent with the original color used on Leitz lenses produced
since the introduction of the M mount through the 1960s. Each Leica Summarit-M
lens is supplied with a metal lens front cap, a lens hood cap and a velours pouch
for storage. High-quality all-metal lens hoods are available as accessories.
