Swift's Ultra Lite collection are said to be the first and only binoculars
to incorporate two different types of rubber to improve durability, shock-absorption
and comfort. These new binoculars combine harder rubber on their outer edges
for better protection against bangs and bumps. Softer rubber is used in the
area where you grip the binoculars, thereby reducing user fatigue. The softer
rubber also provides a superior grip in any weather condition, wet or dry. This
same technology is also used to create a non-slip focusing knob on these binoculars.
The dual density covering also aids the nature photographer by keeping these
binoculars quiet when rubbing against their clothes.

The DSLR-A200 model features upgrades influenced by the recently-introduced, enthusiast-class
DSLR-A700 camera and replaces the former Sony DSLR-A100 model, which was Sony's
first in the DSLR class. The new model is designed to be faster, lighter and easier
to use. Upgraded features include a wider, 2.7-inch Clear Photo LCDTM screen for
easy playback viewing; a more compact body and an easily-accessible mode dial;
an easy-to-use function menu (camera function display); improved noise control
for higher quality images; an auto focus speed 1.7x faster than the previous model;
improved predictive control performance; quieter shutter sound; automatic pop-up
flash; and a battery life indicator that displays the percentage of battery life
remaining so you know exactly when to recharge.



As seen in all a (alpha) camera bodies, the DSLR-A200 camera incorporates Super
SteadyShot image stabilization in the body to allow shooting at shutter speeds
of 2.5 to 3.5 steps slower than otherwise possible -- a benefit realized
with every compatible lens attached to the camera. Compatible lenses encompass
all Minolta Maxxum mount lenses, in addition to Sony a (alpha) lens lineup - including
Carl Zeiss® lenses.



With its 10.2-megapixel (effective) APS CCD image sensor, the DSLR-A200 camera
is said to continue to offer high-quality images by allowing more light to pass
through to each pixel -- increasing sensitivity, reducing noise, and providing
greater detail. Clean, reduced-noise signals are sent from the image sensor to
Sony's BIONZ processing engine, which processes data-rich picture information
at high speeds and reduces picture noise in the RAW data stage before image JPEG
conversion. The results are high-resolution, detailed images with rich tonal reproduction.



The DSLR-A200 model supports JPEG and RAW file format support. It has a slot for
CompactFlash Type I/II media cards. An adaptor for Memory Stick Duo media cards
is sold separately as an accessory.



Get The Photo Results You Want


In addition to Super SteadyShot image stabilization for virtually blur-free photos,
the new model incorporates Sony's D-Range Optimizer (DRO). It helps you
capture well-exposed images, especially when shooting high-contrast or backlit
scenes that often lead to loss of highlight and shadow detail. Sony's DRO
modifies the range from highlights to shadows, including gain and contrast, through
its in-camera hardware processing to produce more natural, evenly exposed pictures.
The camera's image analysis technology studies the captured image data and
instantly determines the best exposure and color tonality for the image before
JPEG compression.



The BIONZ image processing engine powers the camera up immediately and the eye-start
autofocus starts the focusing system before you even press the shutter. The camera
can shoot up to three continuous frames per second at 10.2-megapixels at the finest
JPEG compression level.



As seen in previous a (alpha) models, the new model carries a static-free anti-dust
coating on the CCD filter which is gently vibrated to dislodge any dust that might
have collected each time the camera is powered off.



Additionally, the DSLR-A200 camera's supplied lithium ion battery offers
up to 750 shots per full charge.



Sony is providing a full line of accessories for the model, including flashes,
rechargeable battery packs and several carrying cases. An interesting addition
is the VG-B30AM ergonomic vertical grip equipped with the most essential controls
for portrait orientation shooting. It also allows for the use of two InfoLITHIUM
batteries (sold separately) for up to 1,500 shots on a single, full charge.



The DSLR-A200K kit includes the camera body and a DT 18-70mm f3.5-5.6 3.9x zoom
lens for about $700. The DSLR-A200W kit includes the camera body, the DT 18-70mm
lens and a 75--300mm f4.5-5.6 lens for about $900. Both will ship in February
and will be available at sonystyle.com,
Sony Style retail stores (www.sonystyle.com/retail),
military base exchanges, and authorized dealers nationwide. Pre-orders begin online
on Jan. 7 at www.sonystyle.com/dslr.

Nikon
has introduced the D50 digital SLR camera, the smallest, lightest and easiest-to-use
Nikon digital SLR camera to date. The D50 is said to be designed for the broadest
range of consumers including family memory-keepers as well as photo enthusiasts.




Pricing is $899 (for the D50 outfit with the AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G
ED lens), The camera features seven Digital Vari-Program modes including the
new "Child" mode. The D50's "Child" mode automatically
adjusts several of the camera's settings, including ISO, shutter speeds,
and white balance, to produce optimized images when taking pictures of children.
The D50 also includes a full range of manual controls and custom settings, so
users can grow with the camera, and advanced photo enthusiasts can find themselves
right at home with a D50 in their hands.



The D50, a 6.1 effective megapixel camera, incorporates several important new
Nikon technologies, including the new 3D Color Matrix Metering II, said to ensure
accurate exposure control in all types of lighting situations by automatically
comparing input from its frame-wide 420-pixel metering sensor for each scene
to a large onboard database of over 30,000 scenes from actual photography. Shutter
speed choices in the D50 extend from 30 seconds to 1/4,000 second. A high-speed
flash sync speed goes up to up to 1/500 second. The D50 is said to be ready
to shoot in an imperceptible 0.2 seconds. The shutter responds almost instantly
when a picture is taken, thereby minimizing `shutter-lag'. Continuous
shooting at 2.5 pictures per second* can be maintained for a burst of up to
137 pictures. Pictures taken are instantly processed and recorded to a compact
SD (Secure Digital) memory card, and a new USB 2.0 Hi-Speed interface supports
faster transfer of images when connected to a computer.



Newly designed plain-language menus are displayed clearly on the large 2.0-inch
LCD screen, and intuitive help menus are available for on-the-spot reference.
A high capacity rechargeable lithium-ion battery helps extend mobility and convenience
by delivering the power to shoot up to 2,000 images on a single charge. The
D50 also offers seamless compatibility with Nikon's extensive family of over
50 high-performance AF Nikkor lenses.



The Nikon D50 outfit, including the new AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G
ED lens, will be available in June for an estimated selling price of $899.95.

YPOC, a leading producer of custom canvas prints and pioneer of innovative print-on-canvas processes, has re-designed its website to help consumers take all the guesswork out of converting their precious photos into amazing PhotoGiclées on canvas. By incorporating proprietary Image Resolution Detection software, uploaded images are automatically "evaluated" to determine all canvas enlargements that will render excellent results. Canvas sizes deemed too large based on the quality of the original image file can still be chosen, but only those sizes that will showcase the image best will be highlighted, helping to avoid customer disappointment and removing the customer need to use image editors like Photoshop.
