The Sunbounce Grip Head GH-2522 will replace both the discontinued GRIP-HEAD "THE PRO" and "THE BIG". The GRIP-HEAD ENTERPRISE comes with several new and outstanding features. The two tunnel clamps are differently sized, and perfectly match both the tube sizes SUNBOUNCE uses. The GRIP-HEAD ENTERPRISE can be used with any SUNBOUNCE frame except the Sun Scrim 20 x 20. The GRIP-HEAD ENTERPRISE is perfectly developed for the Sunbounce System and is a super strong high quality aluminum product. Its two clamps are twice as long compared to the GRIP-HEAD PRO or BIG and allow an even better grip of the frame, yet the GRIP-HEAD ENTERPRISE weighs 135 grams less than the GRIP-HEAD BIG.

Delkin has announced the fastest SD memory card built to Secure Digital format specifications, with transfer speeds up to 95MB/s read, 80MB/s write and an impressive 633X speed rating that more than triples previous Class 10 capabilities.

The Elite 633 card utilizes the Secure Digital Association’s “Ultra High Speed” (UHS-I) specification, which enables bus-interface speeds up to 104 Megabytes per second and full backwards compatibility among SDHC and SDXC host devices for seamless integration in today’s devices . When paired with UHS enabled equipment such as Nikon’s D7000 and Canon’s T3i, benefits such as real-time broadcasting and simultaneous recording become attainable for the first time. Additional features like advanced Error Correction Code (ECC), reliable Wear Leveling, and storage integrity in harsh conditions (including static, vibration, shock & UV light exposure) make this a buzz worthy card among the professional imaging crowd.

Alien Skin Software has announced the immediate availability of Blow Up 2.0.3, the new version of its photo resizing plug-in for Adobe Photoshop and Photoshop Elements.  Blow Up 2.0.3 is a free update for owners of Blow Up 2.0.0 or later.  Simply installing the latest demo of Blow Up from the Alien Skin Software Web site will upgrade an existing installation of Blow Up 2 to version 2.0.3.

Blow Up 2.0.3 comes with two Photoshop CS4 panels that are accessed in the Window->Extensions menu.  These panels can be moved and docked just like Photoshop’s built-in panels, such as the Layers palette.  The first of these is the Startup Panel which makes common output sizes and paper types available with a single click.  The Startup Panel can also start Blow Up’s full interface with a single click rather than navigating into Photoshop’s menus.

The other Photoshop CS4 panel installed with Blow Up 2.0.3 is the Gallery Wrap Panel.  This panel prepares images for printing on canvas that is stretched around the outside of a wood frame.  This popular mounting technique requires extending an image to cover the sides of the frame, which can be a confusing and tedious process.  The Gallery Wrap Panel provides full control over this process while taking care of all the technical details.  The resulting image is ready to send to professional printing companies such as APC (http://artisticphotocanvas.com).

Adobe Systems Incorporated (Nasdaq:ADBE) introduced Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 beta software for Macintosh and Windows, a public preview of new and improved functionality to be delivered in the next major release. Available as a free download on Adobe Labs, Lightroom 3 beta delivers a preview of new tools that will be in Lightroom 3, including more intuitive importing, unparalleled noise reduction and sharpening tools, enhanced slideshow capabilities and direct publishing to online photo sharing sites like Flickr. Adobe encourages photographers to test this early selection of new features and provide the product team with their feedback.

“We are extremely fortunate that a strong community of photographers have rallied around Lightroom, helping to evolve the application and making it a meaningful part of their photographic workflows,” said Kevin Connor, vice president of product management for Professional Digital Imaging at Adobe. “While we’re still hard at work on Lightroom 3, we recognize the value our customers bring to the development process and want their input so we can deliver the best final product possible.”

Lightroom 3 beta has been completely redesigned with under-the-hood efficiencies to better handle growing image libraries and improve responsiveness with a higher-quality processing engine. In the Library module, a rebuilt import system makes bringing photos into the software more intuitive. Users can easily specify the source and destination of their images, and save common processing, metadata or destination settings as easy-to-reuse presets.

The Library module also includes new capabilities to publish collections on popular photo-sharing sites. Flickr users now have direct access to their accounts from within Lightroom and can drag and drop images directly into their Photostreams. Flickr Pro account users can automatically synch their images and even view comments made on Flickr directly within the Library. This functionality can be extended to additional sites by adding them as new plug-ins once they become available.

In the Develop module, an overhauled processing engine allows users to create the highest quality images. Improved Capture Sharpening and Color Noise Reduction tools provide superior results while still preserving an image’s edge detail and contrast. A new Grain tool adds a film-style grain to images, and two new Vignette modes help photographers get a more natural look.

Lightroom 3 beta also offers advanced output options, including the ability to export slideshows as videos with audio and title screens that can be posted to video-sharing sites or optimized for mobile media. New watermarking capabilities enable photographers to embed text or graphic information directly on an image and then adjust the size, position and opacity. In addition, photographers can customize print layouts and save settings for future use, giving them refined control over their images.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 beta is available as a free download to anyone on both Macintosh and Windows platforms. Visit to learn more and download the beta. Feedback can be submitted on the Lightroom forums: http://forums.adobe.com/community/lightroom. Users also can connect with Adobe at www.facebook.com/lightroom or www.twitter.com/AdobeLR, and can add the tag #AdobeLR3beta to tweets about the Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 beta.
