Delkin Devices, Inc. has introduced the eFilm Archival Gold "300-Year" CD-R. eFilm Archival Gold CD-R's incorporate patented Phthalocyanine (thalo-sy-a-neen)
dye and a 24k gold reflective layer into every CD-R. The innovative materials
found in eFilm Archival Gold CD-R's are said to make them one of the most
reliable storage mediums available. According to Delkin, CD-R's are known
to deteriorate quickly due to earth's common elements: ultra violet light,
heat, and humidity. Using an accelerated aging process to test the longevity

Argraph Corporation has introduced Digital High Grade (DHG) Filters, the first
optical filters designed specifically for digital cameras and lenses. Marumi
Optical Company of Japan has designed the DGH range of lens filters to eliminate
the flare and ghosting prevalent when the CCD or CMOS chips in digital cameras
convert light into electrical signals. A newly developed ultra-low reflection
coating increases light transmission. In addition the lens' outer rim
is blackened to minimize internal reflection. The satin smooth, ultra thin,
matte-black metal filter frame further minimizes refection. The new Marumi DHG
filters are available in UV, Circular Polarizer, Star-Cross, Neutral Density-8
and Soft Fantasy varieties, and come in standard metric sizes from 49mm-82mm.
There is also a Macro +3 close up filter available in sizes from 49mm-77mm.
