MediaStreet Inc. has used its award-winning photo inks and papers to produce
a magnificent photo exhibit to raise money to help find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis.
Produced with MediaStreet's Generations inks and enlarged to 30x40-inches
on their Royal Renaissance papers, the exhibit-quality prints were displayed
during the foundation's annual Gala fundraiser. The gallery prints were
auctioned individually to the highest bidders during a live auction. ? ?With
the help of MediaStreet's participation and other corporate sponsors,
Cystic Fibrosis was able to raise more than $130K for CF research.



"It is a wonderful feeling to know that our products and services were
used to raise funding for medical research," said Norm Levy, President
of MediaStreet. "The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is geared toward one thing
-- raising money for research to find a cure for CF. We were honored to
be asked for our help and thrilled to do whatever we could to help," Mr.
Levy added.



About the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation?When the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation was
established in 1955, children with cystic fibrosis (CF) were not expected to
live long enough to attend elementary school. Thanks, in large part, to the
Foundation's aggressive investments in innovative research and comprehensive
care, the median survival age for people with this disease is now nearly 37
years.???After more than 50 years of service, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
remains committed to its core mission: to develop more therapies that will extend
and enhance the lives of those with cystic fibrosis and ultimately to find a
cure or control for CF.

Rollei, manufacturer of the classic twin-lens 6x6 Rolleiflex, has announced
the availability of the 6008 AF "Bundle," which will be the top-of-the-line
offering in a family of products Rollei is rolling out in the U.S.



The bundle includes the Rollei 6008 AF camera, the world's first auto focus
single lens reflex camera in a 6 x 6 medium format; C1 Pro software for precise
workflow that supports all phases of image editing and intuitive operation;
and the PhaseOne db20p digital back, which gives photographers film and digital
picture taking capability in one package. The interchangeable film packs allow
a photographer to shoot film, Polaroid-type shots as well as digital shots.



The db20p has resolution of 16 mega pixels, 16 bits per RGB or CMYK color, and
offers the option of saving RAW files in addition to TIFF and JPEG files. The
unit handles studio or location shoots with ease, thanks to high performance
rechargeable batteries that provide 250 shots (four working hours) and 45 frames
per minute without AC power. The data is stored in the IIQ RAW format on CompactFlash
cards. Processed images can be stored in the form of IIQ RAW, TIFF-RGB, TIFF-CMYK
or JPEG files. File sizes are between 48 MB and 128 MB. ICC profiles can be
embedded for optimum color management.



The 6008 AF is targeted to studio and on-location professionals -- from portrait,
fashion and landscape photographers, to photojournalists, and corporate/ government
photographers involved in "workflow" photography. Pricing is expected
to be in the $14,999 range.



Rollei's new bundle, which includes lenses from Schneider-Kreuznach and Carl
Zeiss, retains full compatibility with the Rollei 6000 system. This makes it
compatible with more than 20 current 6000 system lenses. Three new AF lenses
have been developed for the auto focus modes of the 6008 AF.



The 6008 AF also features a new TTL flash-control system. The TTL sensor is
integrated into the camera and measures the amount of flash light reaching the
film - parallax-free and at the exact viewing angle. All available shutter speeds
are flash-synchronized, which give pros a considerable advantage when working
in daylight and or for filling in shadows and strong subject contrasts. The
Rollei 6008 AF weighs 1500 grams and is 143 x 139 x 124 mm without lens.
