Jobo AG announces today the immediate availability of a firmware update to
its award-winning GIGA Vu PRO evolution digital image storage and viewing device.
This firmware 2.0.4 update includes the new JD Loupe, Incremental Back-up and
increased RAW Format compatibility and is available for free download at http://www.jobo.com/jobo_service/digital/index.html.
In addition, all GIGA Vu PRO evolution units shipped from now on will feature
this latest firmware.



The new JD Loupe (the brain child of National Geographic photographer and loyal
GIGA Vu PRO evolution user Jay Dickman) provides users of this mobile image
storage device with a button in the unit's zoom menu that causes a magnified
rectangular loupe to appear on the LCD screen so photographers can closely examine
important details of their pictures.



In addition there is a new easy-to-use one-touch-software-update called Incremental
Back-up (the brain child of wildlife photographer and loyal GIGA Vu PRO evolution
user Andy Rouse). This update allows users who transfer the data stored on their
GIGA Vu PRO evolution via Incremental Back-up to an external storage device
such as the Jobo GIGA one, to automatically synchronize the data on both devices
with just one touch. The new data will be added to the external device without
deleting any already existing data on the device.



With this new update, the GIGA Vu PRO evolution now features RAW compatibility
with even more camera models from manufacturers including Canon, Casio, Contax,
Fuji, Hasselblad, Kodak, Konica Minolta, Leica (the GIGA Vu PRO evolution can
decode the Leica M8 RAW), Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Pentax, Samsung, Sigma,
and Sony. And Jobo continues to test more camera models for compatibility on
a regular basis at the request of their customers. A full list of currently
compatible camera models is available on the Jobo AG Web site (www.jobo.com).

Panasonic has announced the world's first Micro Four Thirds system camera,
the LUMIX DMC-G1, the world's smallest and lightest digital interchangeable
lens camera, weighing in at approximately 385 grams (0.85 lbs). Based on the

sensor, has been reduced from 40 mm -- as specified in the Four Thirds
System -- to approximately 20 mm.
