The PT-E05 underwater case has been specially customized for the Olympus E-520
and is waterproof up to a water pressure equivalent to a depth of 130 feet. With
its durable, high quality polycarbonate construction, it protects the camera from
water while also cushioning it from knocks and bumps on land. The housing allows
underwater photographers to compose images using the large 2.7" Live View
LCD instead of the viewfinder. The flash connectors allow optional use of up to
two UFL-2 underwater flash units. Five interchangeable lens ports allow the optional
use of 14-42mm, 14-45mm, 11-22mm or 14-54mm, 7-14mm, 8mm Fisheye and the 35mm
as well as the 50mm Macro lens. An external flash is necessary. The PT-E05 will
become available in summer 2008.

up to a water pressure equivalent to a depth of 196 feet. It is specially designed

DigiGear, Inc.'s EZ3D Photo Print gives anyone the ability to take any
digital photo and turn it into a 3D photo in three EZ steps and in just minutes.
EZ3D Photo Print comes complete with everything you need to get started. (However,
you will need a Windows based computer, and photo-quality printer, and photo
paper works best.) At the center of the product is the EZ3D Photo Print software,
which is compatible with Windows 98, 2000, ME and XP operating systems. Once
loaded on the PC, all you have to do is to open the EZ3D software, select your
image you wish to make 3D and import the image into the EZ3D software. Then
the next step is to use the built-in rendering tool to outline the item in the
photo you wish to make 3D. After you have done this, all you do is hit "print"
and your EZ3D image will print out on your printer. Now just take this digital
print and mount it behind the included EZ3D Photo lens and place it in the EZ3D
frame and you now have your favorite EZ3D photo.

LightScribe and LaCie have announced that they are partnering to offer the first
direct disc labeling drive for Macintosh computers. For the first time, Macintosh
customers can burn the data side of a disc, then flip the disc over and burn a
precise, iridescent label with their desired text and graphics using the same
laser that burns the data. No printer, permanent marker or adhesive labeling is
required to develop and burn creative designs onto the CD or DVD.



LightScribe uses the LaCie d2 DVD±RW Double Layer drive's existing
laser to deliver precisely controlled light energy to the disc through an innovative
circular writing system. The light energy causes a visible chemical change in
the dye coating. The result is a high-resolution label image of art, text or photos.
Because the labels are laser etched in a coating applied during disc manufacture,
no ink or adhesive labels are required.



The LaCie d2 DVD±RW Double Layer supports burning a full 4.7GB DVD in about
five minutes, as well as burning to double layer discs that offer twice the capacity.
Easy-to-use DVD creation software allows people to create movies in a matter of
minutes complete with menus, thumbnails and backgrounds. With the LightScribe
technology, customers can also burn a label that is a high-resolution reproduction
of their artwork, text or photos.



LaCie d2 DVD±RW Double Layer drives with LightScribe will be available
in early 2005.

with a telltale photo from the collection as well as client information so that
they can be found easily with a quick visual reference.



LightScribe, the only widely available embedded disc labeling technology, is
licensed to over 75 optical drive and media manufacturers, software developers,
media and computer brands worldwide. LightScribe-enabled CDs, DVDs, software,
desktops, notebooks, aftermarket optical disc drives and duplicator systems
