Konica Minolta Photo Imaging U.S.A., Inc. has unveiled the new Konica Minolta
Maxxum 7D digital Single Lens Reflex (SLR) camera. This 6.1-million-pixel resolution,
interchangeable lens digital camera is the world's first digital SLR featuring
a body-integral CCD-shift, Anti-Shake (camera-shake compensation) technology
that combines enhanced picture quality, performance and improved handling characteristics.
This new digital SLR also features a large, easy-to-view, high-definition 2.5-inch
color LCD monitor and is compatible with virtually any Maxxum AF lens.



Specifically designed to match the performance requirements of the camera's
large 6-megapixel CCD, the Maxxum 7D's exclusive CCD shift-type Anti-Shake
technology makes this new camera the first digital SLR to feature a body-integral
Anti-Shake function. This system instantly and precisely shifts the CCD to compensate
for camera motion. And it's so effective photographers can shoot at shutter
speeds up to three steps slower than what they could use without it. So even
in low light, photographers can keep their images clean and sharp, free of the
image-degrading noise that creeps in when they boost ISO sensitivity. And because
the mechanism is integrated directly into the Maxxum 7D's cameras body,
it works with virtually any Maxxum AF lens -- a major advantage for photographers
when compared to bulky and expensive lens-based optical stabilization systems
and software-based "digital correction systems" that can degrade
image quality.

Komotion, Inc., the makers of the Web Gallery Wizard, has announced the release
of Shozam Web Gallery Generator, which automatically creates Web galleries to
showcase photos, video and other digital media.



Shozam is said to put content ownership back in the hands of users. It is a software
tool that lets users create and control their own multimedia Web galleries. Users
import and arrange media, write captions and descriptions, add audio and select
a professionally-designed theme. With the click of a button, Shozam generates
a Web site with seven different page layouts, including a slideshow view, which
users can upload to any Web host.



Shozam automatically optimizes images, and the entire gallery is uploaded at one
time. This process is said to be up to 40 times faster than submitting original
photos to a photo sharing service. Shozam is said to eliminate the need for online
photo sites which can over-compress photos, clutter the site with ads, impose
restrictions, or require minimum purchases of add-ons like prints and calendars.
The makers say that if the said service goes out of business, the gallery --
and the work and time that went into it -- can disappear. Even worse, precious
photos can be lost.



Available in five editions for Windows, Shozam Web Gallery Generator starts at
just $49.95 and grows with a user's needs, from simple photo gallery creation
to a full-featured Web site with image protection, shopping cart and more. For
more about Shozam Editions, features and pricing, or to download the free trial,
go to www.shozam.com.
