DIGITAL CAMERAS
Digital Imaging—a primer for the uninitiated
Digital imaging is exploding. It seems everybody is doing it. And you think you want to get into it. Fine, but where do you
start? What equipment do you need? No problem. But before we get to that, let us begin with a little background information
so you’ll have a better understand of what digital imaging is.
Until about five years ago imaging was an analog affair. Pictures were “recorded” onto film and the manipulation of images
took place in a darkroom—a messy, wasteful and environmentally unfriendly way of doing things.
Digital imaging is the digital recording of images, either by a digital camera or a scanner. Once recorded, these digital
images (made up of 0’s and 1’s) can be transferred (downloaded) to your computer where they can be edited, manipulated,
e-mailed, printed, or incorporated into almost any kind of document.
You won’t have to crawl up in the attic
or dig around the basement anymore to
find those prints of the kids. With digital
photos, organizing, storing and finding
prints is a thousand times easier and
more efficient. In it’s simplest form you
can glance at hundreds of thumbnails of
your images on your computer to quickly find what you are looking for. You can
make copies of your photos to create
albums in their own folder. On a more
sophisticated level you can use
cataloging software (for as little as $50)
to attach keywords to your images to
search your photo collection.
Not to scare you or anything, but fires,
floods, theft, earthquakes, etc. do
happen. The family photos one loses in
these disasters is often the biggest loss,
they are irreplaceable both in sentimental value and memories. So backing up
your photo collection is a must. And it is
easy. If your photos are in a digital form,
copying the files (photos) to a CD or
DVD and storing them in a safe place is a
lot easier to do. Keep them in a safety
deposit box or at work. You can store
thousands of photos for pennies on a CD
or DVD that takes up no space. It is just
a matter of you doing it and it is easy to
do. (This is a good idea even in the
world of digital because it is not
uncommon for hard drives to fail and if
that is the only place photos are stored
you are out of luck –so back them up).
One more thing, digital cameras are a
great way to learn photography. With
the ability to instantly see images, you
will have a much better appreciation for
settings such as aperture and shutter
and how they alter mood and character.
In order to get images into your computer, they must be digitized. There are
basically two ways of digitizing them. Digital cameras or scanners. Digital
cameras digitize images as they are shot. Scanners digitize existing negatives,
transparencies and prints. Once the images are digitized—whether they were
shot with a digital camera or shot on film and scanned—you can transfer them
to your computer (there are many easy ways to do this.) Now the second part
of digital imaging starts . . .
You can optimize your images with an image-editing program, restore damaged
or faded photos, and apply an almost infinite variety of special effects. You see
the results of anything you as you do it, and if you don't like something – just
hit “undo” and do it again. You can e-mail your pictures, or post them on a
Web page, put them on flyers, turn them into calendars or greeting cards, put
them on T-shirts and coffee mugs, print them, or even have them output back
onto film. Oh, one more thing. In the long run digital is cheaper, a lot cheaper.
Much less money spent on film, chemicals etc.
So now, what do you need to go digital? A digital camera or a scanner, a fast
computer with a lot of RAM (at least 256MB), a 20˝ monitor, a lot of storage,
an inkjet or dye-sub printer or output device like a CD or DVD burner and
image-editing software. All these things you will find throughout this catalog.
But for now the question is . . .
Digital Camera vs. 35mm Camera and Scanner
So now we know that we need either a digital camera or scanner, so which one. You
might have thousands of dollars invested in a top 35mm system. If you scan your fullframe 35mm image (negative or slide) with a 2700-dpi (dots-per-inch) scanner film
scanner (under $300 today) you get a 9.4 megapixel scan (2496 x 3776). Do it with a
4000-dpi scanner (under $1000) and you get a 21MB file (3762 x 5646). So you can continue to shoot with your familiar and versatile 35mm SLR camera—which very likely
has more features and better performance than most digital camera. And you have a
good negative or slide as well as a high-resolution digital image. But resolution is only
one part of the story. Digital cameras are the biggest innovation in photography in
over 100 years. They give you a myriad of benefits that simply can’t be achieved with
a 35mm camera. And if you haven’t invested a lot in analog—then there is no question.

Taking photos costs money. The more you
take the more it costs. You have to buy
film then pay to develop it. If you don’t
pay you can’t see your pictures.
Taking photos are free. You basically buy
your memory storage once (memory card)
and can keep reusing it after you have
downloaded your photos to your computer.
You must be patient and wait. You can
not see your photos until you get them
back from the developer.
Instant gratification because you can
immediately see the photos you have
taken with the LCD monitor on your
digital camera.
You must rely more on your photographic skills because you don’t know what
your photo will look like until you get it
back from the developers.
You don’t need to rely as much on your
photography skills because you get
instant feedback. If you don’t like it, just
shoot it again. Or just shoot a whole
bunch of photos because you can keep
the ones you like and delete the rest.
Making copies or your photos cost
money, time and a trip in your car.
Making 100% exact duplicate copies of
your photos is free and as easy as three
clicks with your mouse.
The pictures you take are not ready to be
e-mailed to a friend, client or used on
your web page. You must pay for the film,
pay and wait for the photos to be developed
and then digitize them using a scanner.
Your photos are instantly ready to be
e-mailed to your friend, client or used on
your webpage.
You are limited to maybe 36 photos at the
most before you have to put a new roll of
film in.
Digital Cameras hold far more images
than the traditional roll of 24 or 36
images. The number of photos your digital camera can hold before you need to
download is limited only by the size of
your memory card, the resolution of your
images and the file type it is saved as. To
give you an idea, a digital camera set to
take quality 5 x 7” photos can take about
150 photos with a 128MB memory card.
How many times have you taken a great
photo of a friend and they really want it?
You give them the print and lie to yourself that someday you’ll develop another
print of it to replace it. You never do.
How many times have you taken a great

Well…just e-mail it to them or print on

are you going to do? Mail them, probably
not. Your friends and family will have to
wait until you get back home to see them.

The CCD is made up of millions of tiny
sensors that record the amount of light
that hits them. The sensors only record the
amount of light that hits them, not the
color of the light. For the digital camera to
detect what color is in each pixel, a color
filter is put over the individual sensors
After the light strikes the CCD, the
individual sensors convert the amount
of light hitting them into an electrical
signal, which is originally stored as an
analog signal, and is converted to a digital
signal by a analog to digital converter
(A-D converter).
Each of these sensors represents 1 pixel,
and the actual 24 bit color is determined by
the average of the pixel and all of it’s
neighbors. The information on the CCD is
then read one horizontal line at a time to
the internal memory of the camera, and on
their way they pass through the internal
filters, such as white balance, color, and
aliasing correction. The internal memory
then stitches all individual pixels into an
image. The image in its uncompressed form
is then (if selected), compressed.
After all this happens the image is then
saved to the memory media of the camera,
whether it be SmartMedia, CompactFlash,
Memory Stick, floppy disc or CD.

Digital cameras might be a little more
expensive now, but they getting better
and cheaper all the time.
DIGITAL CAMERAS
Generally a 35mm camera costs less than
a digital camera. But 35mm cameras are
not getting much cheaper.
How Digital Cameras Work
A digital camera is similar to a 35mm
camera in the way that it takes pictures.
The way a digital camera differs from a
35mm camera is what's inside. When you
take a picture on your digital camera the
CCD charges up and prepared for the
picture to be taken. Once the shutter
button is depressed, light enters the
camera and strike the CCD. The light is
then measured electronically on the CCD
and is then sent off to the internal memory
of the camera, called the buffer. Once the
image information reaches the buffer, it is
then compressed (if selected) into JPEG
format. The completed image is then
transferred to the memory card on the
camera. Some cameras will need this
process to finish before taking another
picture, some cameras have an internal
buffer that is large enough to hold a
number of pictures, and can therefore take
multiple pictures in a row, called burst
shooting.

Choosing a Digital Camera—What You Need to Know
Choosing a digital camera doesn’t have to be difficult. You just need to understand what you'll be using the camera for and
then learn the basics about what makes these incredible image making tools “click”. After spending a few minutes on these
pages you should be able to wade through the maze of choices and make an informed decision. Of course if you still need
more help, feel free to call us and speak to one of our experienced digital camera experts.
Pixels = Resolution
The Lens
One of today’s hottest buzzwords when buying a digital camera is
“megapixel”— and for a very good reason. Let us explain. At the
heart of every digital camera is the electronic sensor (usually CCD)
that records the image. The sensor is composed of thousands of
microscopic dots called picture elements, or “pixels” for short (“pix”
for picture, “el” for elements). And yes, you guessed it — the more
pixels an image has the better its resolution, and the more detail it
will have.
When you are in the upper deck of a ballgame, nothing comes
in more handy than a good zoom lens. Nine out of ten cameras
today come with a zoom, and the only reason not to get a camera with a zoom lens would be cost. So when you look for a
camera with a zoom, the only thing you have make sure, is,
that the lens is an optical zoom and not a digital zoom. Optical
zooms let you change the focal length just like conventional
35mm zoom lenses. A digital zoom though, takes a smaller
image captured on the CCD, crops it and then enlarges it (basically by duplicating every pixel). Better digital systems use
interpolation, an algorithm that averages two adjoining pixels
to create the new extra pixel
Simply put a “megapixel” is a million pixels. A one-megapixel
digital camera, at its maximum quality setting, produces images
composed of approximately 1,000,000 individual pixels. This is
also described by an equation showing the amount of pixels laid out
horizontally and vertically on the CCD. For example a camera with
1152 x 864 pixels means it has 995,328 pixels. Similarly, a
two-megapixel camera will usually have a spec of 1600 x 1200
(1,920,000 pixels), and so on.
So what is the point of this exercise? Well, resolution is important
because to get large images that equal conventional photo print
quality you need a certain amount of pixels. Otherwise, you’re
pictures will become jaggedy and pixelated. So in determining how
many pixels you need, you first have to decide what size prints you
want to make. The rule of thumb for printing digital images is that
you need 300 dpi (dots per inch) for top image quality. So for example, you want to print 5 x 7’s you would need something in the area
of a 3.3 megapixel camera. Why? Divide for example the 3.2 megapixel (2048 x 1536) resolution of the Canon PowerShot SD100 Digital
Elph by 300 (dpi) and you get 7.13 x 5.2. Now of course this is only a
rule of thumb. You can easily get away with 240 dpi and a photoquality inkjet printer. And if you’re careful about how you save the
image (using TIFF, RAW or low compression JPEG files) you can actually print larger images by increasing the size of the files through
software. So depending on your personal standards—what one viewer considers fine, another might find unacceptable.— a good 8 x 10˝
print can come from a two-, three- or four-megapixel file.
Now the other side of this, maybe you just want to take pictures for
posting on the web, to put on CDs, or e-mail to friends. There your
requirements would be much lower. For the web you only need 72
dpi—a full 75% less resolution than high quality print. So obviously,
you’d be able to get away almost exclusively with a 2-megapixel
camera. (However you will get much better quality with a camera
that offers better optics—even at 72 dpi). And if you want all the
options (shoot high and low quality), you should look for a camera
that offers several different shooting resolutions. This way you won’t
lock yourself into shooting 5MB files when all you need is 1MB.

Changing Focal Lengths
When looking at a lens’ focal length, you should remember that
the CCDs in digital cameras are much smaller than a 35mm film
frame. 35mm cameras capture light in a frame measuring 24 x
36mm or roughly 1 x 1.5-inches. But CCD chips are much smaller (in some cases 1/3 or 1/2 an inch.) So focal lengths will be
much smaller. To help you determine what kind of zoom lens
the camera has, most manufacturers (and we have also in this
catalog) provide you with the focal length in “35mm equivalent”, and that is the length you should go by.
On the flip side of this, putting a 35mm lens on a digital SLRtype camera will also skew the focal length—but this time by
multiplying the focal length, usually by a factor of 1.6x. That
means a 100mm lens on your 35mm SLR will be 160mm on a
Canon EOS 10D.
Getting back to point and shoot type digital cameras, 2x and 3x
are the most common optical zoom lenses. A 3X means three
times from the widest to the longest lens setting (for example,
35mm to 105mm). Some cameras come with longer lenses, a
10X for example. However, be aware that as the lens gets
longer, it gets harder to hold the lens steady enough while the
picture is being taken. The camera will have to feature an
image stabilization system or you will need a tripod.
The last thing you’ll want in a lens is macro (close-up) capability. This is the ability to focus on objects that are very close to
the lens. Even with a zoom lens, if you want to take a close-up
of an object, and the lens won't focus closer than four feet, you
won't be able to fill the frame with a postage stamp. With good
macro ability you can literally get within inches of an object—
so you can fill the frame with that stamp, coin, bug, etc.

THE BASICS
LCD Monitors
ISO Equivalents
Storage Capacity
Burst Rate
Burst rate is important in sports or fashion photography where a
fast recycle time is essential. Since a digital camera has to actually
write an image file every time you take a picture, you usually have
between 3-5 seconds of dead time between shots. Higher-end
cameras overcome this problem to a certain degree by adding
RAM to the camera which acts as a buffer. In this way, you can
take several shots before having to wait 10-20 seconds while the
images write. (Some professional digital SLRs such as the Nikon
D2H or the Canon EOS-1D have very fast refresh rates.
Compression
JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group) is the image format most
common to digital cameras. It gives dramatically smaller sizes than
a full photo file by compressing the information in the file. The
other format common to digital cameras is TIFF (Tagged Image File
Format), which stores image information as full-sized uncompressed files. A common JPEG of a 3 million pixel image might only
be a1MB file, while the equivalent TIFF is about a 9MB file. While
any applying any compression will result in some loss of image
quality, at low compression it is minimal.
High-end cameras offer RAW option. This is the raw data directly
read from the image sensor, with no in-camera processing. The
advantage of this is that while RAW is a smaller file size than TIFF, it
gives a more accurate representation of image data and image data
is recorded over a wider range for deeper color.
Once you’ve taken your pictures, you’ll probably want to download
them to your computer for filing, manipulation, mailing or printing.
To do this, most cameras come equipped with a USB port allowing
fast downloads. But if you have big files and/or shoot a lot of
images you’ll probably want a Memory Card reader. Available for
PCs and Macs with single or dual slots or dual media compatible,
with SCSI, USB or Firewire connection, a reader will fly your pictures to the computer about five times faster than by your camera
to omputer via USB.
Other Useful Features
Auto Exposure Bracketing (AEB)—This is a must have for professional
shooters. AEB mode gives you three different exposures (+1/0/-1) of
the same shot—insuring you’ll get proper exposure.
Movie Mode—Almost every digital still camera made today offers
some kind of movie mode. They run the gamut from 160 x 112 to
full VGA 640 x 480 resolution at anywhere from 10 fps (frames per
second) to 30 fps. Lengths are anything from 15 second clips to full
five minute movies.
Stitch Mode—This is a unique feature to help you shoot multiple
images for building a panorama later.

Most digital cameras have an LCD display of 1.5 to 2-inches on
their back. This is where you playback images (or video) deciding
which ones to keep. Some cameras allow the previews to be
zoomed in so you can examine images more closely. The LCD monitor is also usually where the camera features and functions are controlled from usually via menus. Some cameras also include an LCD
viewfinder although they are not really recommended for sharp
focusing. They basically help you frame the shot and maybe help
with the colors. It is recommended though, that the camera should
also have a conventional optical viewfinder (more expensive models offer true through-the-lens viewfinders), in addition to its LCD
monitor. That’s because a camera that only offers an LCD monitor
requires you to hold it away from yourself to frame a shot possibly
causing unsteadiness.
Most cameras today accept removable storage media allowing you
to shoot bigger files, and much more of them. Most digital cameras
use either SmartMedia or CompactFlash cards (some can accept
both) while Sony offers their Memory Stick and the more exotic
Mavica CD disc. Like Moore’s Law in computers, storage media
capacity seems to be doubling every two years while costing half
as much. SmartMedia and Memory Sticks are available in 512MB
while CompactFlash and IBM’s MicroDrive offer over 1GB capacities. Finally, Fuji and Olympus’ xD-Picture Cards while offering up
to 512MB capacity today—can go up to an amazing 8GB!
DIGITAL CAMERAS
Like conventional cameras, where you can select films with different sensitivities to light, most digital cameras offer multiple sensitivity settings ranging from an ISO (International Standards
Organization) equivalent of 100 through 400. But for those who
work in low-light photography; you’ll have to look for cameras that
offer higher ISO. However, a similar problem results when doing
low-light photography with digital as with film--as you get "grainy"
results from shooting with fast ISO films like 800 or 1600, digital
cameras get "noise" shooting in high ISO modes.

DIGITAL CAMERAS
4.0-Megapixel Digital Camera
The flagship of the PowerShot A-series, the compact but
rugged 4.0-megapixel PowerShot A80 combines brilliant
image quality, crisp Canon optics, and advanced features
including 3X optical zoom, Intelligent Orientation Sensor,
selectable 9-point AiAF and Single-Point AF, and 270°
Vari-Angle LCD monitor for flexibility, in an affordable
and easy-to-use package.
Housed in a durable and compact metal body, the lightweight (8.8 oz.) PowerShot A80 captures up to 2272 x 1704
resolution images with exceptional detail and color fidelity,
while Canon's exclusive DIGIC processor improves image quality and increases
camera responsiveness and image processing speeds. It is equipped with multiple manual overrides and customizable My
Camera function plus Movie Mode (maximum 3 minutes) and voice memos with sound and speaker. It is also the first
PowerShot digital camera to support PictBridge, the new standard for high-quality direct printing.
FEATURES
Megapixel Picture Quality
◆ 4.0 megapixel CCD sensor captures
images up to 2272 x 1704 pixels with
exceptional detail and color fidelity.
◆ DIGIC Imaging Processor revolutionizes
how you shoot digital by allowing the
camera to process images faster and
improving the accuracy of the
autofocus. DIGIC also reduces the
effects on noise in your images.
◆ iSAPS technology is an entirely new
scene-recognition technology developed
for digital cameras by Canon. Using an
internal database of thousands of
different photos, iSAPS works with the
fast DIGIC Imaging Processor to
improve focus speed and accuracy, as
well as exposure and white balance.
3x Optical Lens & 9-Point AiAF
◆ The PowerShot A80 features an original
Canon 3x optical zoom (38-114mm
equivalent in 35mm) for close-ups that
will amaze and inspire. Extremely precise,
Canon has engineered the lens to ensure
that zooming is fast and continuous, so
nothing gets in the way of your picture
taking. In addition, there is 3.6x digital
zoom for a total zooming range of 11x.
◆ Perfect focus via Single- or 9-point AiAF.
Choose single, center-point AF for the
easiest way to sharp focus. Or use the
camera’s sophisticated 9-point AiAF
system when subjects are away from
center frame. Whatever you choose,
you'll get sharply focused shots every
time — whether you're holding the
camera vertically or horizontally.
Shoot From Any Angle without Looking Through the Lens
The PowerShot A80 has a 270° Variable-Angle LCD
Monitor that gives you even more shooting options.
Turn the LCD monitor 180° toward the front of the
camera and the A80 displays your choice of a
mirror image or a non-reversed image, to give you a
true view of your actual shot. Now you can create
brilliant pictures, no matter where you're standing.

PictBridge
◆ In addition to connecting directly to any
Canon dye-sub or Bubble Jet Direct compatible printer for fast, high-quality photos,
the A80 supports PictBridge, the new
standard for high-quality direct printing.
– A step above Canon DirectPrint, the vendorindependent, PictBridge allows digital
cameras (and camcorders) to connect
directly to any photo printer or other output
device (both must be PictBridge compatible)
making inter-brand connectivity a reality.
– Since PictBridge is independent of a connection and communications protocol, it
can employ existing connections such as
USB. Once connected, photo selections and
print instructions can be made from the
camera’s LCD and control buttons.
– With PictBridge compatible cameras like
the A80 you can easily print pictures at
home, the office or while traveling, with
any PictBridge compatible printer.
Intelligent Orientation Sensor
◆ With the Intelligent Orientation Sensor, the
A80 can tell if you shot a photo vertically
or horizontally. It automatically adjusts AF,
AE and white balance and makes sure that
photos are oriented correctly when you
download them to your computer.

DIGITAL CAMERAS
3.2-Megapixel Digital ‘Elph’ Camera
The first Canon digital camera to exclusively record all images to a Secure Digital (SD)
Memory card, the PowerShot SD100 digital camera represents the ultimate in portability,
durability and elegance. Ultra-compact with a white-platinum finish crafted in stainless
steel, the SD100’s size was made possible through the process of miniaturization, beginning with a new optical zoom lens design so small it can literally hide under a U.S.
dime, to the extremely small built-in flash unit, a new condensed battery and use of the
SD media format.
Measuring just 3.4 x 2.2 x 0.9˝ (WxHxD) and weighing only 5.8 oz. (without batteries),
the PowerShot SD100 features the world's smallest retractable 2x optical zoom lens.
When retracted, the f2.8 - f3.9 lens measures a mere 17.9mm in length, almost the
same as the diameter of a U.S. dime and
20% shorter than 2x zoom lenses used in
previous Digital ELPH cameras. Also, it offers a 3.2x digital zoom to achieve a
6.4x combined zoom. Additional features include Canon’s DIGIC and iSAPS
Technology, 9-point AiAF autofocus system, which makes focusing quick and
easy, even with off-center subjects, and the ability to capture up to three
minutes of 640 x 480 pixel video.
FEATURES
High Quality CCD/Lens
◆ 3.2-megapixel CCD offers the superior
resolution (up to 2048 x 1536) needed to
create images of extraordinary depth,
detail and brilliance.
◆ 3.2x digital zoom combines with the
35-70mm (35mm equivalent) 2x optical
zoom for seamless 6.4x zoom power.
◆ As pixel counts go up, lens quality
becomes crucial to image quality.
Canon’s expertise in advanced optical
and glass-molding technologies allows
aspherical lenses to be incorporated in
the zoom, delivering small size and
image sharpness not possible with
conventional lenses.
◆ 9-point AiAF alloows you to frame shots
without being constrained by the subject’s
position. The single center point AF
setting accurately pulls the shot into focus
- even when the subject is off-center.
◆ Uses the incredibly tiny SD memory
cards. Get expanded capacity and high
writing speed from a memory card the
size of a postage stamp.

◆ Precision Auto White Balance for opti-
mum color temperature plus manual settings for daylight, cloudy, tungsten, fluorescent, fluorescent H, and custom white

specifically designed for use in digital cameras, it is also capable of handling JPEG
compression/expansion; memory card control; LCD/Video control and processing; gain
control (control of CCD signal amplification); Auto Exposure; Auto Focus; Auto White
Balance control and most other functions of the camera. The result is a product that
offers faster and more powerful auto focus than ever before, faster image processing,
longer battery life, and the ability to record three-minute movie clips with sound.
◆ DIGIC’s high-speed processing enables Canon’s exclusive iSAPS (an acronym for
Intelligent Scene Analysis based on Photographic Space) technology that improves
picture quality by “predicting” certain camera settings like focusing distance, exposure
and optimum white balance based on zoom focal length, overall light level and tonal
distribution data. With iSAPS, the PowerShot S50 can analyze a scene just before the
image is made and in doing so, increase the speed and precision of the camera’s
autofocus, auto exposure and auto white balance. The result is high-quality images and
fast response to help capture the “decisive moment.”

POWERSHOT G5
22
DIGITAL CAMERAS
5-Megapixel Digital Camera
Canon’s top-of-the-line PowerShot, the G5 is a stunning combination of
resolution, speed and control, all housed in a rugged but elegant black
body. The PowerShot G5 features 5-megapixel CCD resolution (2592 x
1944 pixels) with exceptional detail and color fidelity. fidelity. It has a
fast, high resolution 4x optical zoom lens with iris-type aperture and
User-operated, multi-stop control for spectacular depth of field, or elegant
blur. Perfect focus, exposure, and color are achieved quickly with the
combination of Canon’s exclusive DIGIC imaging processor with iSAPS
technology, an Intelligent Orientation Sensor, and the use of primary color filters.
A Wide-Area FlexiZone AF/AE system allow you to focus on off-center subjects without repositioning the camera, while 12
EOS System-based shooting modes and a host of automatic and manual functions ensure you the perfect shot every time—
no matter what your shooting style. The PowerShot G5 also has a 270° Swivel LCD, Vari-Angle monitor, ergonomic hand grip
and an EOS-style control layout for easier handling. For image storage, the camera uses Compact Flash cards including
IBM’s Microdrives and is compatible with Canon EX-series Speedlites, as well as a variety of Canon supplementary lenses.
FEATURES
5-Megapixel CCD
◆ Massive 5-megapixel CCD sensor allows
you to produce high-resolution images up
to 2,592 x 1,944 pixels with exceptional
detail and fidelity for stunning clarity and
color in even your biggest enlargements.
In addition, primary color filters are used
to reduce noise while enhancing the natural colors of the scene photographed.
4x Optical/16x Digital Zoom
◆ At the heart of the PowerShot G5 is
Canon’s powerful 4x, all-glass zoom lens.
With a 35mm equivalent range of 35140mm, a large maximum aperture of
f/2.0-3.0, and macro focusing down to 2
in., there’s virtually nothing this lens
can’t do. A 4x digital zoom extends the
telephoto capabilities even further, effectively making it a 16x zoom.
DIGIC Imaging Processor and iSAPS Technology
Canon Technology for High Quality Images
Canon’s proprietary DIGIC (Digital Imaging Integrated Circuit) image processor combines image processing and camera function control into one chip. And since it was
designed for digital cameras, it also handles JPEG compression/expansion; memory
card control; LCD/Video control and processing; gain control (control of CCD signal
amplification); Auto Exposure/Focus;/White Balance control and most other functions
of the camera. The result is faster and more powerful auto focus, faster image processing, longer battery life, and the ability to record 3-minute movie clips with sound.
The DIGIC chip’s high-speed processing enables Canon’s exclusive iSAPS (Intelligent
Scene Analysis based on Photographic Space) technology to improve picture quality
by “predicting” certain camera settings like focusing distance, exposure and optimum
white balance based on zoom focal length, overall light level and tonal distribution
data. With iSAPS, the PowerShot G5 can analyze a scene just before the image is made
and in doing so, increase the speed and precision of the camera’s autofocus, auto
exposure and auto white balance.

RAW Mode
◆ In addition to JPEG compression set-
tings, the G5 can record full resolution
images as CCD RAW files. This preserves
maximum image quality, since data is
recorded to the memory card directly
from the CCD without degradation.
White Balance & ISO Control
◆ To ensure the perfect exposure in any
situation, the PowerShot G5 offers the
characteristics of virtually every type of
film in traditional photography. With 9
white balance settings (automatic, six
preset, and two custom) it can adjust
for almost any lighting condition. It also
offers a choice of ISO ratings (Auto, 50,
100, 200, or 400) to best suit conditions
at hand. A neutral density filter setting
allows for slower shutter speeds in
extremely bright situations. Long-exposure noise reduction is automatically
applied to images 1.3 seconds or longer.
◆ White balance settings include auto,
daylight, cloudy, tungsten and fluorescent (Fluorescent H or flash) settings.
“Fluorescent H” offers a better match for
daylight-type fluorescent lights, while
“flash” is optimized for the color temperature of flash pictures.
CANON

Advanced Autofocus
◆ The G5 offers two choices for autofocus:
◆ For macro photography, the camera can
autofocus down to 2.˝ at the wide end
of the lens and 6˝ at telephoto. The
vari-angle LCD monitor makes framing
close up shots easier.
focus point and exposure for a specific
area of a scene, then recompose and
shoot without losing the settings
◆ Focus bracketing captures shots with
the focus positioned at, behind and in
front of the current position. Ideal for
macro photography.
Three Metering Systems
◆ Flash Exposure Compensation lets you
intentionally and independently adjust flash
illumination to fine-tune lighting ratios between
subject and background in fill-flash situations
◆ Because the built-in flash is somewhat limited, an
external hot-sync connection, compatible with
Canon’s EX-series Speedlites is also provided. This
allows longer range and greater control of lighting.
◆ Choose a second-curtain sync flash option with or
without an external flash. You can also set flash output manually (1/3-stop intervals from
full exposure to -4 stops) with external flashes and (weak, medium, strong) the built-in flash.
◆ At the top-right is the G5’s light guide flash, originally introduced on the G3. The light
guide design prevents the wasting of flash power that is common on “regular” flashes by
better focusing the light. The working range of the flash is 0.7 - 5.0 m at wide-angle, and 0.7
- 4.0 m at telephoto.
Photo Effect Mode
Color saturation is altered to create 5 settings in any shooting mode. Plus Photo Effects can
be used in any exposure mode—not just in manual mode:
Photo Effect

Vivid Color
Yields vibrant shots with dramatic high-contrast
Neutral Color
Produces images of subtle, elegant tonality
Low Sharpening
Softens the image to create a soft-focus filter effect
Sepia

Black & White
Delivers enhanced clarity, especially useful when shooting text
◆ The PowerShot G5 gives you a choice of
three light metering systems.
—Canon’s sophisticated Evaluative metering reads tens of thousands of separate
areas of the full image, and is the ideal
metering choice for most situations.
—There’s also full-area Center- weighted
metering, which is perfect for shooters
who prefer to dial in their own exposure
compensation.
—Finally, for the utmost precision, there’s
Spot metering – which can measure a
tiny area either at the center of the
image, or can be linked to the AF point if
it’s off-center.
◆ Also feature Auto Exposure Bracketing
(AEB) whereby the camera records a
series of three bracketed exposures
(normal, over, and under). The bracketing can be up to +/-2EV in 1/3-stop increments from the initial automatic setting.
Vari-Angle LCD Monitor
At every step,you know exactly what your
PowerShot G5 sees and how it sees it. The
image in the LCD monitor is true, bright,
clear and colorful, and contained
within a 1.8˝ frame. The vari-angle
monitor lets you compose shots at
a wide variety of angles: directly
overhead, on the ground, or at
waist level. The LCD monitor also provides a convenient location for the G5’s
advanced GUI which clearly shows you the camera’s status and settings. The
interface even allows you to choose one of 12 languages for your setup guide.
◆ The G5 can also display a histogram of the photo image on the LCD monitor. The
histogram is a graph with the horizontal axis representing "brightness" and the
vertical axis depicting the cumulative number of pixels that have that brightness.
It allows you to check the overall exposure of each photo, and if any portion of the
photo is grossly overexposed, warning signals are displayed.

Portable Dye-Sub Card Photo Printers
40 percent smaller than previous models, the Canon dye-sub CP-200 and
CP-300 Card Photo Printers allow you to create extremely high quality
color prints directly via USB cable from any current model PowerShot
camera in about 85 seconds. The CP-200 and CP-300 are also
Pictbridge-compatible. This allows you to connect any
Pictbridge-compatible camera— meaning you can connect
other brands of digital cameras directly to these printers.
Make different sized bordered or borderless prints, ranging from
miniature stickers and wallet-sized prints to 4x6˝ photo postcards.
With their compact size, you can output
beautiful color prints quickly and easily
from wherever you’re shooting. In fact, the
combination of the PowerShot SD100 for example, and a CP-200 or CP-300 takes the entire
photographic process and puts it in a briefcase (or into the optional CPB-100 Printer
Carrying Bag). Both printers are compatible with DPOF (Digital Print Order Format) to
facilitate batch printing, e-mail transfers, and print ordering through online photo
labs. Otherwise identical, the CP-200 runs on AC power, the CP-300 can run on AC
or battery power.
FEATURES
◆ The CP-200/CP-300 make it easier than
ever to print radiant, professional
quality photos. Just plug in a current
PowerShot or PictBridge supported
digital camera.
◆ Instantly, you have complete control of
the printers' customized functions
including automatic printing using DPOF,
index printing, partial image printing,
multiple copy printing, exact size
printing and more. It's amazingly simple
because you operate it all straight from
your camera. You can even add a date
stamp. All without touching a computer.
◆ They print at 300-dpi with 256 levels of
color so you can create richly detailed
prints from 2-megapixel or greater
cameras. Dye-sub technology controls
the ink flow to deliver a full range of
realistic tones and shadings, so color is
natural and true-to-life.
◆ For durability, the CP-300 and CP-200 add
a transparent, protective overcoating to
each print that shields it from the
damaging effects of sunlight and humidity.
PHOTO - VIDEO - PRO AUDIO
◆ Select your prints right on your camera’s
LCD. Choose 4 x 6˝ or 2x 3˝ credit card
(business card) size prints. Do borders or
go borderless. Even print labels.
◆ Printing direct from PowerShot digital
cameras you can output 4 x 6˝ in less
than 90 seconds, or credit card size shots
in as little as 40 seconds. .
◆ Need to print an image stored in your
computer? Simply plug-in a USB cable
from your computer (Mac or Windows)
and you can output images stored on the
hard drive.
◆ Slim and neatly proportioned, the CP
printers have been thoughtfully designed
to complement any room in the house.

5.2-Megapixel Digital Camera
Combining the incomparable optical quality photographers have come to
expect from Zeiss T* optics, with the cutting-edge
technology that Contax is famous for, the TVS Digital
delivers images not available from any other image
capture device. Housed in a titanium body, the TVS
Digital features a 3x Carl Zeiss T* Vario Sonnar lens the ultimate in high resolution, color saturation and
contrast - with a huge 5-megapixel CCD, as well as a
4x digital zoom, three metering modes, automatic
exposure and white balance bracketing, flash
compensation, high speed shutter and movie modes, LCD histogram, voice memo, self-timer/remote release and image editing.

FEATURES
State-Of-The-Art Lens Design
Immediate Access
Dual Set-up Command Modes
The Carl Zeiss T* Vario-Sonnar 7.3~21.9mm
(35~105mm equivalent in 35mm format)
zoom offers 3x optical and 4x digital zoom.
The latest technology in lens design is
standard on the Vario-Sonnar. 3 aspheric
surfaces are incorporated in this six-element design. The T* anti-reflection coating
is applied to each lens element, dramatically reducing flare and increasing contrast
and sharpness in your photographs.
The top of the TVS Digital provides instant
access via the command dial for the AVI
movie mode, two exposure control modes
(Aperture priority or Program control),
image review and main setup menu. The
top LCD Information Center provides feedback about the flash mode selection,
remaining pictures on the installed memory card, manual focus feedback, macro
mode and battery condition.
The well-designed layout provides quick
access to the menu items you want to control. Two set-up modes for customization
allow the user greater control over camera
functions. Set-up "C" changes camera functions (Flash mode setting, change of exposure compensation range, etc.) while Setup "D" changes digital functions (electronic tone, electronic zooming, startup screen
setting, etc.). Another feature of the TVS
Digital is a customized startup screen,
which is similar to a desktop PC. The user
can choose an image taken with the camera to be displayed on the screen each
time the camera is turned on. An AVI
movie mode is also featured on the new
Contax TVS Digital and can hold up to 30
seconds of high quality digital video.
Multimedia and SD Cards
USB/Video Connection
The TVS Digital exploits the advantages of
both Multimedia cards (MMC) and Secure
Digital (SD) memory cards. This media is
especially suited to the compact design of
the TVS Digital and is easily shared with
other electronic devices PDAs and cellular
telephones for storage and transmission of
images and data.
Transfer of your images to a computer is
easy with the built-in USB port and supplied USB cable. Video output is also possible using the video out plug and supplied
video cable to connect the TVS Digital to a
monitor or VCR. A DC in port and AC
power supply is included to power the TVS
for extended shooting or viewing.
For the user who wants to be a part of the
picture, the included RC-1 Remote
Controller makes it easy.
New DayFine LCD
Outdoor LCD viewing has often been a problem in the past. That is until Kyocera
pioneered a new technology which has been incorporated into the TVS Digital. The new
DayFine 1.6˝ TFT color LCD makes it easier than ever to view images or subjects while
outdoors in very bright conditions. Utilizing “Dual Backlight” design, a special optical
film increases the transmission of light from the LCD. In addition, the ambient light is
used to increase the intensity of the image displayed on the LCD. This increases the
brilliance and contrast of the LCD, even under the brightest outdoor conditions.

Durability
Many of the unique features found on
Contax T series 35mm film cameras have
been carried over to the TVS Digital.
Starting with a titanium body, stronger
than steel and lighter than aluminum, it
ensures durability along with elegance. A
diopter control is built-in to adjust the
viewfinder for your needs. Sapphire glass
viewfinder covers provide scratch-resistant protection to help keep the Contax
TVS Digital looking like new, even after
years of use.
Each of the seven layers of th T* anti-reflection coating is optimized for a portion of the
total bandwidth of white light and together the seven layers cover the entire visible spectrum. The thickness of each coating layer is 1/4 wavelength of the frequency of light that
the layer is dedicated to. Light is phase shifted 1/4 wavelength as it passes through the
coating the first time. If the photon is reflected, it passes through the anti-reflection coating again and as it passes, it is phase shifted again 1/4 wavelength. Now, the reflected photon is 180° out of phase and it is annihilated. T* optical coating represents the most
advanced optical technology available. And T* coatings are only available on Zeiss lenses.

Expanding the Possibilities of Digital Photography
With the introduction of its 4th-Generation Super CCD, Fuji has once again secured its
position as the world leader in CCD technology and digital image quality. Based on
the design of their proprietary 3rd- Generation Super CCD, Fuji has now developed
two different types of sensor arrays – the Super CCD HR for ultra-high resolution, and
the Super CCD SR for expanded dynamic range. The result: digital image quality that
more closely approaches the perceptive abilities of the human eye itself.
Super CCD HR
Pixel counts in digital camera CCDs continue to increase and Fuji is no exception.
But Fuji increases pixel count with a different approach than other manufacturers.
Their concern is with the five main factors that determine overall image quality:
Resolution, Sensitivity, Dynamic Range, S/N , and Color Fidelity. They aim to increase
the number of pixels in a way that best balances these factors, never sacrificing any
one of them for the others. This was how they created the 3rd-Gen Super CCD, the
first sensor for a consumer-use digital camera that offered ISO 1600-equivalent
speed, together with high-quality full-frame VGA movie recording capabilities.
The Super CCD HR sensor array represents a miniaturization of Fuji’s Super CCD
technology, preserving its performance advantages while further increasing pixel
count. The 1/1.7˝ Super CCD HR (FinePix S7000) boasts 6.63 million pixels and a
remarkable 12.3 million recording pixels, while the 1/2.7˝ unit (FinePix S5000)
employs 3.14 million pixels and 6 million recording pixels. Despite the smaller size of
each photodiode, enhancements in their physical design as well as new signal-processing technology have actually improved both sensitivity and S/N ratio over the
already outstanding performance of the 3rd-Generation Super CCD.
Super CCD SR
The second type of 4th-Gen. CCD, the Super CCD SR, is designed for optimum exposure latitude and tonal range. As pixel counts have increased, they have begun to
approach the resolving ability of film. Too often, however, those higher pixel counts
have been achieved by sacrificing sensitivity and particularly dynamic range, which
is to say the output range of the photodiodes when exposed to various levels of
light. That has meant dramatically inferior tonality as compared to film.
The larger the CCD, the greater its dynamic range will be, and thus the greater its
ability to render a long, rich tonal scale. The small size of the CCDs used in consumer digital cameras, therefore have limited dynamic range. Digital cameras have
difficulties reproducing high-contrast images containing both dark and bright areas,
with shadows tending to lose detail and whites washing out. And while the basic
design of Fuji’s Super CCDs has assured better dynamic range than conventional
CCDs, until now this aspect of their performance has still fallen short of film, let
alone the human eye. The new Super CCD SR employs extremely precise design and
construction of each photodiode in the array to offer four times greater dynamic
range than offered by the same size 3rd-Generation Super CCD.
The Super CCD SR simulates the extended tonal range characteristics of color negative film, and was based on a thorough study of how the structure of film could be
applied to CCD design. Specifically, negative film employs both low-sensitivity and
high-sensitivity layers for each of the primary RGB colors. The Super CCD SR mimics
this structure by using a combination of low-sensitivity and high sensitivity pixels.

FINEPIX F700
6.2-Megapixel Digital Camera
for the Perfectionist
Waiting for a camera that combines the imaging performance of a 35mm
film camera with the versatility of digital photography? Meet the FinePix
F700. It’s as comfortable in the hand and convenient to use as the best
film-based cameras. And, thanks to the exclusive 4th-Generation Super
CCD, it captures pictures with quality approaching that of film.
The 6.2-megapixel (S-pixel: 3.1 million, R-pixel: 3.1 million) FinePix F700
features Super CCD SR (Super Dynamic Range) technology to dramatically
increased dynamic range, enabling you to capture highlight and shadow
detail missed by conventional digital cameras, resulting in images of stunning quality.
The FinePix F700’s sleek metal body echoes traditional film-camera design with
centralized placement of its viewfinder, lens and 1.8˝ LCD screen. In addition, the
camera offers on-demand continuous auto-focus, three color modes, manual
functions, advanced movie recording capabilities, diminished shutter lag, and
at 1.2 seconds, one of the fastest start-up times on the market. It also supports
VGA 30 fps movie capture, RAW output and comes with a PictureCradle docking
station for easy downloading and battery recharging.
Super CCD SR
Because of their limited dynamic range, the CCDs used in
traditional digital cameras have difficulties reproducing
high-contrast images containing both dark and bright areas,
with shadows tending to lose detail and whites washing out.
To assure better dynamic range, the Super CCD SR simulates
the extended tonal range characteristics of color negative
film, and was based on a thorough study of how the
structure of film could be applied to CCD design. Specifically,
negative film employs both low sensitivity and high-sensitivity layers for each of the primary RGB colors. The Super CCD
SR mimics this structure by using a combination of low-sensitivity R-pixels and high-sensitivity S-pixels, employing
extremely precise design and construction for each pixel.
By combining information from both types of sensor
elements, the Super CCD SR achieves approximately four
times greater dynamic range and significantly greater tonal
range — the ability to capture three-dimensional realism with
a fine range of highlight tonality as well as a superlative
shadow detail and texture.
Extended dynamic range is only the start with the FinePix
F700. The next-generation sensor also yields improved
resolution, greater sensitivity, higher signal-to-noise ratio,
and enhanced color purity. In short: digital image quality that
truly challenges photographic film reproduction.

6.3-Megapixel ‘Super CCD HR’ Camera
The most imaging capability ever seen in a ‘prosumer’ camera, the
FinePix S7000 features a 6.3-megapixel Super CCD HR sensor that produces an unbelievable 12 million recorded pixel output. A serious digital
alternative to a film SLR, the compact FinePix S7000 is an ergonomic
tool for professional photographers, but also represents an irresistible
package for the ambitious newcomer to digital photography. The FinePix
S7000's manual modes enable you to exert creative control over aperture, focusing shutter speed and flash. This, combined with the Super
EBC 6x optical Fujinon lens, means that even the most ambitious images
can become a reality. If you stop at nothing in pursuit of quality, the S7000’s
RAW mode stores images exactly as they were recorded, pixel by pixel, every time.
The S7000 aslo features a cable release socket, external flash shoe and VGA digital movie
mode, recording at 30 frames per second (fps), with sound. A dual card slot enables the use of both xD-Picture Card and
CompactFlash/IBM Microdrive cards, a combination of formats that will soon be capable of several GBs of memory.
FEATURES
6x Optical Zoom
◆ The camera sports a fast F2.8 Super EBC
(Electron Beam Coating) Fujinon 6x optical zoom lens from 35 to 210mm (35mm
equivalent). Incorporating professional
quality and high-precision, the lens delivers outstanding detail and clarity.
◆ The lens is of a floating type and is a
mere 46mm in depth with ten elements
in seven groups including two aspherical
lenses. It has extremely low chromatic
aberration and multi-layer coating. Fiveblade rounded diaphragm mechanism
with 13 f-stops, offers a wide variety of
depths of field.
◆ The lens may be manually focused by
using an electronic ring at the end of the
lens barrel. An optional AR-FX9 lens
adapter allows the use of 55mm filters or
add-on lenses. There are two auxiliary
lenses available, the WL-FX9 is a 0.79x
adapter that makes the S7000’s lens
equivalent to 28mm at wide angle. The
TL-FX9 is a 1.5x adapter that extends the
S7000's lens out to 315mm in telephoto.
◆ Smooth digital zoom up to 3.2x (in
640 x 480 mode) is also available.
Combined with the 6x optical zoom, the
S7000’s19.2x magnification offers the
equivalent of a 35-668 mm zoom.
PHOTO - VIDEO - PRO AUDIO
Fourth-Generation Super CCD
◆ Even before the Super CCD technology
takes control of the image, photographs
taken with this camera will possess a
class-leading 6 million pixels. After the
Super CCD HR has processed the file, the
image output is an unheard of 12 million
pixels (4048 x 3040) allowing you enlarge
to gallery-size prints.
◆ Fuji's SuperCCD HR technology also deliv-
ers the renowned Fuji color reproduction,
and the sensitive octagonal diodes
ensure that images are awash with accurate detail, even in low-light situations.
High-Speed Shutter
◆ The S7000 features electronic shutter
speeds from 15 seconds to an amazing
1/10,000-second when shooting manually.
The combination of extremely fast shutter speed and high sensitivity setting
opens a new world of creative and technical possibilities.
Sensitivity
◆ The S7000 offers high sensitivity settings
(up to ISO 400 automatically, and manually up to ISO 800 )allowing photography in
a wide range of situations, including low
light without flash.
EQUIPMENT LEASING AVAILABLE
Fast-Action Dual Method AF
Super intelligent fast-action dual-method
auto focusing measures AF data in two
steps: First, the AF sensor helps the camera
to instantly measure the distance from the
subject, then CCD contrast focus precisely
adjusts the focus. The result: quicker and
more accurate focusing in any situation,
even low light. It also lets you focus on specific areas in the viewfinder using the AF
Area Focus mechanism without having to
lock and recompose the shot.
High-Speed Shooting Modes
High-speed continuous shooting for capturing fast moving subjects. Choose from:
— “First 5-frame” Continuous Shooting
(3.3 frames/second for one second when
shutter button is pressed)
— “Final 5-frame” Continuous Shooting
(2 frames/second for one second just
before shutter button is released)
—1280 x 960-pixel Long-period
Continuous Shooting (1 frame/second
for up to 40 frames)
◆ Although you can shoot 25 frames (5 fps
for 5 seconds) in continuous mode, only
the final frames just before the shutter
button is released are actually captured.

◆ The “Picture-in-Picture” function, which doubles the size of the image in the center of
the viewfinder, enables you to check the accuracy of focusing. This electronic
viewfinder can be selected to display actual and playback images instead of the LCD
monitor. This feature comes in very handy when it is hard to see the image clearly in
bright environments.
◆ Engineered for low power consumption, the S7000 can capture up up to 210 shots (with
EVF on and LCD off) on a single set of four AA alkaline batteries.
◆ The S7000 is equipped with four expo-
sure modes including Program, Shutter

FEATURES
Incredible 10x Optical Zoom
of the professional Schneider-Kreuznach
Variogon 10x zoom lens gives you
superb framing flexibility. It lets you get
close to the action and fill the frame, or
achieve more natural poses from subjects by shooting them from a distance.
◆ The long lens also provides the “flat-
tened” perspective and narrow depth of
field that portrait photographers crave,
all in a compact, SLR-like body. With a
f/2.8 maximum aperture at wide angle
and a f/3.7 at 10x - and the ability to step
down to f/8 - the camera is well-suited to
perform in both low and bright light.
◆ Using the dual-speed zoom control, DX-
6490 users can drive the lens from 1x to
10x in just two seconds, and then extend
the total magnification up to 30x using
Kodak's Advanced Digital Zoom technology, which creates sharper, better quality images across the entire digital zoom
range. For ease of handling, the lens barrel only extends one inch after powering
up the camera, with all lens movements
occurring within the protective housing.
◆ Hybrid, low-light precision auto-focus
system combines rapid phase detection
with highly accurate through the lens
(TTL) contrast detection to precisely
fine tune and sharply define a subject,
even in almost complete darkness.
◆ The DX6490 camera offers fully manual controls, permitting independent aperture,
shutter speed, exposure compensation, ISO equivalent and other settings that can
transform an ordinary picture into a work of art.
◆ The camera also features aperture and shutter priority modes, as well as sport, portrait,
night, landscape, macro and automatic program modes. Saturated, neutral, black-andwhite and sepia color modes lend additional in-camera creative options.
◆ Equipped with an external flash synch - capable of synching at any shutter speed - for
illumination of subjects beyond the 16-foot pop-up flash range.
◆ Offers a high-resolution TTL electronic viewfinder (EVF) with diopter, as well as a large,
2.2˝ high-resolution indoor/outdoor LCD screen. Not only does the EVF show control
settings superimposed over the scene, but it also eliminates parallax while presenting a
nearly 100% field of view. Both LCDs exhibit high refresh rates, and automatically
brighten or dim to reflect changes in exposure compensation.

FINECAM SR5
Pocket-sized 5-Megapixel Camera with “DayFine” LCD Monitor
and Unlimited 3-fps Continuous Shooting
The solution for digital camera users who have been frustrated by
missing the moment” due to the combination of the shutter speed lag
time and slow “click to click” speed, the 5-megapixel Finecam S5R
features RTUNE (Rapid Tuning Technology) to offer the world's fastest
continuous capture mode. In combination with a virtually non-existent
lag time of 0.07 seconds, it can capture images at an incredible unlimited
3 frames per second. In fact, the Finecam SR5 is only limited by the size
of the SD memory card in terms of how many images can be consecutively captured. This dynamic new feature removes the restrictions imposed
on other digital cameras. Kyocera’s Rapid Tuning Technology does this
by eliminating the barriers that limited the transfer of digital data to the
card. The pipeline operation removes the bottlenecks for non-stop captures at 10-12 times faster than the competition.
The Finecam S5R packs all its innovation in a small and light body (3.6 x 2.3 x 1.3˝) [WxHxD] that weighs only 6.3 oz. and
sports high-quality stainless steel covers. Additional functions include six shooting modes and a movie mode with VGA

➤ The Rapid Tuning Technology high-speed imaging processor provides the world’s
fastest full-memory consecutive shooting of any digital camera. Incorporated into
the Finecam S5R, Rapid Tuning Technology provides the combined features of fullmemory successive shooting at approximately 3 frames per second and improved
image quality and dynamic range. In addition, the “DayFine” LCD Monitor displays
the subject in real time during consecutive shooting. Rapid Tuning is the perfect
solution for subjects on the move such as pets, children and sporting events.
➤ With conventional digital cameras, the level of each RGB color in captured images
is controlled by adjusting the white balance after converting the analog image information from the CCD to the digital signal processor. However, this method requires
compensating an uneven signal level for each RGB color at the analog stage with
the digital signal processor, so if the signal levels in the shadow areas are not sufficient, the result is poor image quality.
➤ The Rapid Tuning Technology image processor incorporated into the Finecam S5R
adjusts the output level for each RGB color at the analog signal stage before it is
converted into a digital signal. Then the image processor converts it into a digital
signal to provide fine detail that faithfully reproduces the original image.
➤ Thanks to Rapid Tuning Technology, color noise is reduced in 16-bit A/D
calculations. The A/D conversion of analog image information into digital signals is
performed with accuracy of 16 bits internally, and outputted as 12 bits. Since
detailed resolution reduces color noise, which tends to occur in a single color or in
a dark area of an image, it faithfully reproduces subtle darkness and lightness as
well as shade and shadows of color.
Movie Mode
The Finecam S5R enables you to easily shoot movies with
audio at 30 frames/second up to the maximum capacity of
the memory card. The recorded file is in AVI format and

DIGITAL CAMERAS
4-megapixel ‘LUMIX’ Digital Cameras
To camera aficionados, the Leica name is synonymous with the world’s
finest 35mm cameras and lenses —the instrument of choice for many of
the world’s most respected photographers. Today, the company’s dedication to excellence is vividly reflected in such products as the universally
renowned Summicron, Elmar and Elmarit lenses. Now, in a synthesis of
time-tested design and operation with innovative components, comes the
Digilux 1. Created in intensive technical cooperation with Panasonic, it
combines state-of-the-art digital technology with Leica’s optical expertise to
give photographers a whole new vista of creative possibilities. The clear, modular styling of the LEICA DIGILUX 1 gives the
camera a highly individual look. Its pure lines and reduction to the essentials are inherited from the clear design of Leica's legendary rangefinder cameras.
Digilux 1 features 4-megapixel CCD, high-performance high-speed Leica DC Vario-Summicron 3x zoom lens, 4 frames per
second shooting, large 2.5-inch (200, 000-pixel) LCD monitor with attachable hood, and a large, bright optical viewfinder
with diopter compensation. Camera includes a 2-hour battery, 64MB SD Memory Card, and software.
FEATURES
4-Megapixel CCD
Intelligent Metering
Superb Color
4-megapixel CCD captures extremely fine
detail yet exhibits great sensitivity..
Normally, increasing the number of pixels
means more detail but less sensitivity, but
Panasonic developed the gapless lens
design to greatly improve light-collecting
efficiency. In addition, the CCD pixels are a
large 3.25 microns each. This lets them
receive an extra margin of light, yielding
images that are rich in detail, precision,
depth and clarity.
To assure perfect exposure, multi-metering
mode divides the frame into 60 blocks and
then determines the exposure setting
according to the brightness distribution,
color temperature, and focus information
for all 60 blocks. Added to this is an
intelligent metering function that helps to
assure proper exposure in difficult
conditions, such as shooting against a
bright background. The camera also offers
spot and center-weighted metering.
Incorporates a complementary color filter
that optimizes the DC Vario-Summicron’s
f2.0 brightness and the CCD’s rich, expressive gradation. Because this filter allows
in about 50% more light than the primary
color filter normally used, it provides
higher sensitivity. Panasonic also developed a color engine LSI to achieve virtually the same superb color reproduction as
a primary color
filter, while improving overall balance at
the same time.
THE LEICA DIFFERENCE
Multi-Coating Technology
The Leica DC lenses incorporate highly advanced optical know-how, such as a multicoating technology that greatly reduces surface reflection. In the DC Vario-Summicron
lens used in the Digilux 1, this multi-coating process is applied to nine lens surfaces,
including the optical filter and flat areas that receive no coating at all in conventional
models. The result can be seen in the clear, true-to-life, expressive images that make
Leica cameras so outstanding.
Advanced aperture design helps achieve a beautiful soft-focus effect
Leica lenses capture the subject with exquisite precision while showing the foreground
or background in a delicate soft focus. This fine rendering gives images a natural depth
and perspective and is one reason why many top photographers insist on using Leica
lenses. The aperture design—and the number of shutter blades—is also critical to the
soft focus. The DC Vario-Summicron lens in the Digilux 1 uses a six shutter blades, to
help give images the soft-focus effect for which Leica lenses are known for.

Hybrid Autofocus System
Many digital cameras use an image
feedback system that detects contrast in
the image on the CCD. The Digilux 1 adds
a separate sensor system that quickly
shifts the lens in to “pre-focus” position to
work twice as fast.
Multiple Shooting Modes
Choose from several shooting modes; In
Auto mode the camera makes all the settings for you. In Program AE, the camera
optimizes settings for a variety of situations including creative portraits, action
shots, landscapes and nighttime scenes.
You can also choose from Aperture and
Shutter Priority, and full manual modes.
Exposure is adjustable ±2EV in .25 steps.

FEATURES
High Quality Images
◆ The DiMAGE X20 is built around a high-
precision electro-optical system designed
to maximize image quality. The system
uses a 2.1 megapixel primary-color CCD
with 2.0 million effective pixels for fine
images. This pixel resolution can produce
letter size 150 dpi prints or postcard size
photo-quality prints.
◆ The camera’s high-performance five-point
autofocus system makes taking beautiful,
sharp images simple. Place the subject
anywhere within the extra-wide focus
frames and the camera will do the rest.
The camera uses visual and audio signals
to confirm focus.
◆ Dark noise, a persistent problem in digital
photography, manifests itself by giving a
grainy or sandy appearance to images
taken with long exposures. The DiMAGE
X20 combats this with a noise-reduction
function that automatically activates for
exposures of one second or longer.
◆ Advanced multi-segment metering system
uses information about subject location
from the AF system along with 256 metering segments to calculate the optimum
exposure based on subject and background brightness. No need to worry that
the subject will lost in deep shadows or
washed out in front of dark backgrounds.
◆ The DiMAGE X20 uses Minolta’s unobtrusive non-extending zoom lens. This revolutionary
design uses internal folded optics, which does not change the slim profile of the camera
even while recording. The 3x optical zoom, equivalent to a 37 – 111mm lens on a 35mm
camera, is assisted by a 4x digital zoom giving you a seamless zoom range of 12x.
The DiMAGE X20 makes face-to-face
conversations possible with friends or
family when it is used as a remote
camera for web communication. Using
the supplied USB cable you can connect
the camera to a Windows-based PC with
compatible application such as
Microsoft Net Meeting.
Creative Control
◆ Minolta’s new multi-frame drive mode,
captures nine sequential frames of a
single event in one picture like the
reaction of a friend as they walk in on a
surprise party. The nine images are laid
out in a 3 x 3 grid in a single frame.
◆ The portrait mode controls exposure,
flash, and image processing to
emphasize the subject’s natural skin
tone. And for something a little
different, images can be captured in
one of five monochrome modes; the
traditional grays of black and white,
the warmth and ageless quality of sepia,
or red, green, and blue tones to add fun
or feeling.
◆ Image Pasting allows one image to be
placed within another for a creative
touch. After choosing the background
image, a user simply selects the frame
shape and size and positions it over the
chosen background image. The live
image is displayed inside the selected
frame. After composing the subject in
the frame the user presses the shutter
button to embed and save the image.
◆ Close-up pictures can be made with the
DiMAGE X20. The lens focuses down to
3.9 inches at all focal lengths without
the need of a separate function. This
covers an area of about 1.6 x 1.2 inches.

ates subject and scene brightness and
continuously monitors the situation for
even the slightest changes.
◆ The camera uses information about sub-
ject location from the AF system along
with 256 metering segments to calculate
the optimum exposure based on subject
and background brightness. No need to
worry that the subject will be lost in
deep shadows or washed out in front of
dark backgrounds. Additionally, the
built-in flash is activated automatically
in backlit or low-light conditions.
◆ For basing exposure on a small area of
the subject or scene, spot metering concentrates the exposure reading to the
area covered by the spot AF sensor.

CxProcess II Image Processing
To bring out the best in the 3.3-megapixel CCD, CxProcess II, Minolta’s new image- processing technology, controls the essential image qualities of color, contrast, and sharpness
while minimizing noise. Brilliant, saturated color remains vibrant without becoming unnatural. Subtle contrast is rendered to retain the richness and depth of the subject while preserving details in the highlights and shadows. Sharpness is controlled by balancing resolution with acutance to show fine detail while minimizing hard, unnatural edges.
High Performance Shooting
◆ Progressive Capture drive mode makes sure you never miss the action. When the
shutter-release button is pressed and held, Progressive Capture begins saving
images in the buffer memory. Simply watch the action on the monitor and when
it’s over, release the shutter button and the images in the buffer memory will be
saved to the memory card. Six frames are saved with standard continuous
advance and 10 frames with UHS (Ultra High Shooting) continuous advance.
◆ To ensure sharp images with minimum delay, the DiMAGE Z1 features a Rapid AF
system that uses a high-speed drive to focus the lens quickly and smoothly – 0.3
second focusing time at a focal length of 5.8mm and 0.4 seconds at 58mm - making
it the world’s fastest AF among digital cameras with 10X or greater optical zoom.
◆ Every aspect of the DiMAGE Z1’s performance is pushed to the limit. Startup time
is a mere 2 seconds and shutdown time is 2.4 seconds. After focus has been

DiMAGE Z1
P/A/S/M Exposure Modes
Three Metering Modes
Another similarity to a high-quality 35mm
SLR is the Z1’s three selectable metering
modes: multi-segment, center-weighted,
and spot. Multi-segment metering uses 256
segments to determine exposure.
with quality comparable to S-VHS video.
However, image size (640 x 480, 320 x 240,
160 x 120) and frame rate (30 or 15 fps) is
selectable to balance image quality with
file size. Because of the high frame rate of
the CCD, movies can be shot at 30fps to
create natural flicker-free images, or
15fps to maximize recording time.
◆ When capturing high-quality VGA movies,
image sharpness and brightness is critical. During recording the Z1 continues to
autofocus to provide the sharpest possible image.
◆ Additionally, a night-movie mode can
make color recordings under extreme
low-light conditions. Movie length is limited only by memory card capacity.
Built-In and External Flash System
◆ With a guide number of 39 feet, the Z1 packs the most powerful flash ever built into a
Minolta digital camera. Flash can illuminate a subject up 20 ft. away when used at the
wide-angle position.
◆ In addition, the DiMAGE Z1 is also compatible with Minolta’s Program/Maxxum Flash
3600HS (D) or 5600HS (D) units as well as the latest addition to the line, the Program/
Maxxum Flash 2500 (D). These powerful flash units can be used directly on the camera.
Comfortable and Easy Operation
◆ Large grip gives the Z1 secure,
comfortable handling -- when hand
holding the camera in low-light
conditions or when using long
focal lengths, nothing is more
important than a well-balanced
grip to keep the camera steady.
◆ Mode Dial by the thumb lets
Creative Color Modes
As well as natural color and B&W, the Z1
has two color modes for creative control:
vivid color and sepia. Vivid color increases the saturation to produce vibrant color
images. Sepia creates the feel of antique
photographs with its warm tone.
Automatic Digital Subject
Program Selection
In the past, photographers always had to
make time-consuming manual adjustments
as the subject and shooting environment
changed. The DiMAGE Z1’s Automatic
Digital Subject Program Selection analyzes
the shooting conditions and selects the
optimum exposure, white-balance, and
image processing program. Additionally,
five subject programs: portrait, sports
action, landscape, sunset, and night portrait, cover specialized shooting conditions and can be selected manually.
you easily switch between
exposure modes and movie
recording. And the flash button
next to it can be customized to
enable quick switching of various
settings.
◆ Z1’s operations can be tailored to meet your needs. The function set using the flash-
mode button can be customized to control the flash mode, white balance, drive and
focusing mode, or color mode. Images can be rotated to orient them correctly.
◆ When working in less than ideal lighting conditions, precisely framing an image on
the monitor can be difficult. The DiMAGE Z1’s automatic monitor amplification
brightens the monitor under low light so the live image is always visible,
◆ Powered by easy-to-find AA alkaline or rechargeable Ni-MH batteries
◆ Equipped with Minolta’s exclusive Switch Finder. This system makes sure you see
precisely the same live image in the viewfinder or on the LCD monitor. And this live
image is exceptionally clear and smooth because of the CCD’s fast 60fps frame
rate—twice that of a conventional sensor. Plus, since a single monitor is used, you
don’t have to worry about the color, contrast, and resolution difference between
separate rear and viewfinder monitors. With the viewfinder’s large apparent
angle-of-view, the monitor image is big and clear.

White Balance
Auto white balance compensates for
changes in lighting automatically, while
five preset white-balance settings (daylight, cloudy, tungsten, fluorescent, and
flash) can be selected for specific light
sources. For critical control over color, a
custom setting allows the camera to be
calibrated to the lighting at the scene.
TV Quality Movie Recording
◆ Record high-quality VGA movies at 30 fps
DIGITAL CAMERAS
Like a fine 35mm SLR, the Z1 provides four
exposure-control modes: programmed AE,
aperture priority, shutter priority, and
manual. 30-second bulb exposures can
also be made in manual exposure mode.
(Dark noise, a problem in electronic systems, manifests itself by giving a grainy or
sandy appearance to images taken with
long exposures. The DiMAGE Z1 combats
this with a selectable noise-reduction
function, which automatically activates for
exposures of one second or longer.)

DiMAGE A1
DIGITAL CAMERAS
5-Megapixel SLR-type Digital Camera
A next generation SLR-type digital camera, the DiMAGE A1 exploits the
power of digital imaging by providing the tools to express your creativity
and solve visual problems. And above all, the DiMAGE A1 is a joy to use.
It’s long list of advanced features include the world’s fastest AF speed
among 5-megapixel SLR-type digital cameras, a fast built-in f/2.8 – 3.5 7x
optical zoom lens, a top shutter speed of 1/16,000 of a second, dual-focal
macro system, extra-fine image-quality option, Minolta’s new CxProcess II
and 3-D Predictive Focus Control, new high-speed image-processing LSI for
increased performance, Digital Effects Control and Digital Enhanced
Bracketing, Subject Tracking AF, Flex Focus Point to expand focusing control,
Anti-shake function to minimize the effect of camera shake, continuous-advance drive
modes, and compatibility with portable and studio flash systems. In addition, DiMAGE Capture, Minolta’s new remote imaging
70
software is available to enhance the camera’s creative capabilities.
FEATURES
5-Megapixel CCD
◆ The DiMAGE A1 is built around a
high-precision electro-optical system
designed to maximize image quality.
The system starts with a 5.3 megapixel
2/3-type progressive primary-color CCD
with 5-million effective pixels for fine
high-resolution images. The pixel
resolution of the CCD will produce
13 x 17˝ 150-dpi prints or 6.5 x 8.5˝
300-dpi photo-quality prints.
CxProcess II —Image Processing Technology
Minolta’s exclusive CxProcess II image processing technology helps produce vivid images
that faithfully mirror your original impression of the scene. It promotes clear, natural-looking
images by controlling the essential image qualities of color, contrast, and sharpness while
minimizing noise.
– Brilliant, saturated color remains vibrant
without becoming unnatural or flat.
– Subtle contrast is rendered to retain the
richness and depth of the subject while
preserving details in the highlights and
shadows.
– Sharpness is controlled by balancing resolution with acutance to show fine detail
while minimizing hard, unnatural edges.
– Dark noise can be reduced with exposures of one second or longer via the
noise-reduction menu.
Advanced Image Processing
◆ The DiMAGE A1 offers a host of
image-quality and image-size settings.
The extra-fine image-quality option joins
the fine and standard settings to
produce a high-quality JPEG file with
little compression or loss of detail.
◆ The new 2080 x 1560 image size gives
photographers the ability to smoothly
switch between 2-, 3-, and 5-megapixel
images. This lets you match the final
use of the image with the optimum resolution to maximize storage space on the
memory card. A 640 x 480 (VGA) image
size is also available for web images.
◆ The A1 uses 14-bit (it can distinguish
16,384 levels in each color channel) A/D
conversion to record the richness and
infinite subtleties of light.
World’s Fastest and Most Sophisticated Focusing System
◆ The DiMAGE A1 has the world’s fastest autofocus speed among SLR-type digital cameras
with a non-interchangeable lens. The AF system is activated by the grip sensor to
reduce focusing time as well as to continuously display a sharp image on the monitors.
◆ There is a slight delay from when the
shutter-release button is pressed until an
image is captured. Especially at long focal
lengths, this delay can be significant with
fast-moving subjects. The DiMAGE A1
uses a 3-D Predictive Focus Control to
track the subject until the exposure is
made, ensuring optimum focus. The focus
control continuously follows the subject
through 3-dimensional space, regardless
of direction, not only to give the sharpest
images possible, but also to reduce focusing time to catch the perfect moment.

◆ Flex Focus Point adds unlimited versatili-
ty to the AF system. It is a single
crosshair sensor that can be placed to
any position within the frame, to keep an
off-center subject in focus, or to focus on
subject within a group. The spot metering area can also be switched between a
center spot and the flex focus point.
Very effective in macro situations.
◆ Also incorporates Direct Manual Focus
(DMF). Used in the pro Maxxum 7, DMF
allows you to make quick manual adjustments once autofocus is locked.

◆ Uses luminance patterns and AF
◆ Automatic sensitivity gain ensures high
image quality in dark scenes or during
flash shooting. Sensitivity can also be
manually selected from ISO-equivalent
100, 200, 400, and 800.
◆ Exposure control is available in P/A/S/M
(Program/Aperture Priority/Shutter
Priority and Manual) modes for optimum
results with different shooting objectives.
◆ Digital Subject Programs optimize
◆ Maximum f/2.8 aperture allows image
capture in dim lighting conditions without the use of a flash.
◆ One-Touch 2x Zoom instantly doubles
focal length up to 14x, achieving up to
400mm zoom.
◆ Zooming ring at the end of the lens
allows you to zoom smoothly to your
desired focal length while maintaining
a secure grip on the camera.
◆ Dual-focal macro system allows the
lens to be set at the wide-angle or telephoto position to take advantage of different focal lengths. At the wide-angle
position, the larger field of view and
depth-of-field create a strong perspective and a sense of space. The telephoto position isolates the subject and
minimizes distortion with a narrow
field-of-view and shallow depth-of-field.
Color Control
◆ Digital Effects Control (DEC) allows
contrast, color, and saturation to be
adjusted before the image is captured to
maximize image data at the scene. The
Filter effect controls the overall color of
the image, making it cooler or warmer
in eleven levels. When used with B&W
images, the filter creates a warm or cool
toned image similar to sepia or gold toners with photographic prints as well as
the unique tones of magenta and green.
Ten tones are available.
◆ To ensure correct levels of adjustment
is made with the Digital Effects Control,
a Digital Enhanced Bracket -- threeframes of contrast, color saturation or
filter bracket with a slight increase and
decrease in the quality selected — can
be made.
◆ In addition to natural color and black &
white, the DiMAGE A1 has two color
modes for creative control. Vivid Color
increases the saturation to produce
vibrant color images. Solarization creates a partial reversal of image tones to
produce unique imaging effects. Two
Adobe RGB options are available for
color management applications so that
the image can be captured with or without the Adobe RGB profile embedded.
SLR-Type Viewfinder and Tilting Color LCD Monitor
The redesigned Digital Hyper Viewfinder gives the DiMAGE A1 the same feel as a
35mm SLR. The viewfinder can be tilted between 0° and 90°, for comfortable shooting
at low angles or in confined spaces. Additionally, the viewfinder utilizes a new precision 235,000-pixel TFT monitor. Because the viewfinder LCD is shielded, it provides
clear images even when working under bright light.
◆ The DiMAGE A1 is fitted with a 1.8˝
low-temperature high-contrast color
LCD monitor that can be tilted from
–20° to +90°.
◆ The monitor has an extended color
gamut, contrast, and dynamic range,
plus a wide viewing angle so that the
camera doesn’t have to be held perpendicularly to clearly view the live
image.
◆ Flex Digital Magnifier (FDM) can
enlarge a section of the live image by
2X or 8X so sharpness can be judged
in manual focus or when using DMF.
The FDM marquee can be moved to
frame the section of the image to be enlarged. Once enlarged, the live image can be
scrolled so the entire image area can be examined.
◆ Prior to image capture, you can check the live images’ brightness distribution through a
histogram displayed on the LCD monitor or in the viewfinder. Displayed with the live
image, the histogram allows the subject brightness and contrast to be evaluated to
optimize the camera’s exposure and contrast controls.

Built-in multi-mode flash with a 12´
range. Flash modes include fill-flash,
red-eye reduction, and rear flash
sync (fires the flash at the end of
the exposure, creating a blur effect
behind a moving subject. The
cameras offer flash synchronization
with shutter speeds as fast as
1/2000 second. Selectable flash
metering (ADI or Pre-flash TTL) is
performed through the CCD itself,
an effective method that ensures
precise exposure control.
— ADI (Advanced Distance Integration) uses AF information and pre-flash data to achieve
accurate measurements with minimal interference from subject reflectance.
◆ Equipped with four different drive
modes: continuous advance mode,
exposure bracketing mode, self-timer
mode, and an interval recording mode.
— Pre-flash TTL determines flash exposure based on information derived from a pre-flash.
Flash operation can be selected from among the following three modes: manual fillflash, red-eye reduction, and rear flash sync. Used in combination with Maxxum system
flashes, both cameras enable versatile flash photography in diverse situations.
— The continuous-advance modes make it
possible to capture the action as it
unfolds. Three JPEG or five 5-megapixel
RAW images can be captured at a rate
of 2 frames per second.
◆ A collection of optional flash units offers even more varied types of shooting. The
Program/Maxxum Flash 2500(D), 3600HS(D) and 5600HS(D) can be used directly on the
camera and includes versatile and convenient functions such as auto power zoom, test
flash, bounce flash and remote off-camera flash operation.
— Exposure bracketing offers three-frame
bracketing in 0.3 and 0.5EV increments
— Self-timer modes are 2 sec. and 10 sec.
— Interval recording can be set between
2-240 frames in 30 sec., 1-10 minutes,

images are ideal for postproduction and
manipulation on a computer. You can also
select B&W for beautiful gray tone images.
◆ Nikon’s exclusive Best Shot Selector
(BSS) automatically selects the “sharpest”
from a series of consecutive shots —
especially valuable during macro or
telephoto shooting.
◆ Taking this popular function even further,
Nikon’s latest innovation, AE-BSS (Auto
Exposure–Best Shot Selector), automatically selects the image with the best relative exposure from a series of five consecutive shots by analyzing the tonal range
and gradation of each image. There are
three modes available:
Highlight mode (accentuates details in
bright portions of scene); Shadow mode
(brings out details in dark portions of
scene); and Histogram mode (most suitable for post-capture manipulation).
5 shot buffer mode makes sure you never miss
that spontaneous moment by recording the last 5
taken in sequence. For example, if you know that
something is going to happen but are unsure as to
when, then set the camera to 5 shot buffer mode
and hold down the shutter release button. When
the moment you want to capture has just
occurred, take your finger off the shutter release
button and the
last five pictures will be
saved to the
memory card.

Optimizing Your Workflow:
– NikonView 6 is a powerful software tool
designed to expand your control as you work
towards making the most perfect image files.
With View 6, you can perform a variety of
tasks. Images can be selectively transferred
from your Nikon digital camera or from a
CompactFlash card reader. The selected
picture and shooting information is displayed in separate windows.
– IPTC (International Press Tele-communications Council) data (captions, categories,
copyright, routing, bylines, etc.) and camera shooting data can be directly embedded
into the image header and later used for image management. The information is embedded into the meta fork of the image and travels with your file as it is catalogued, transmitted, resized, altered or put on the web.
– NikonView’s Editor program edits NEF, TIFF and JPEG files and interfaces with any
image editing program for final creative adjustments. In addition, you can email images
directly to friends and clients and create slide shows to display your work in the View 6
browser.
– Finally, you can print directly out of the browser screen using pre-made templates so
you can get the most images out of a sheet of paper with Color Sync enabled.

COOLPIX 5700
5-Megapixel Digital Camera with 8x
Optical Zoom Lens
Extraordinary digital that’s what the Coolpix 5700 offers. Designed for
the advanced amateur, digital enthusiast, semi-professional and others
who require the highest quality, the Coolpix 5700 combine super high
precision 8x Zoom-Nikkor lenses with a 5-megapixel CCD for clear,
sharp, high-resolution images with brilliant color. It’s compact,
lightweight body is made of magnesium alloy for unparalleled
portability. An ergonomic, easy-grip design ensures secure handling
and comfortable operation.
Virtually identical, with many of the same features as the Coolpix 5400
(same exposure modes, metering options, shooting modes, Noise
Reduction Mode, Saturation Control and White Balance Bracketing etc.,
but no Scene Modes) the Coolpix 5700 basically differs only in zoom lens ratio and type of viewfinder.
84
Nikon’s newly developed 8x Zoom-Nikkor lens, with its 8.9-71.2mm focal range (equivalent to 35-280mm in 35mm format) delivers
exceptional optical performance, while the lens’ considerable zoom range provides invaluable flexibility. The new EVF (Electronic
ViewFinder) with its great frame coverage offers total convenience in every shooting position. In addition, the Coolpix 5700
includes a RAW image (NEF format) recording mode for untouched image quality, and has a built-in speaker, making instant
confirmation playback of movies possible. The Coolpix 5700 is compatible with a broad range of quality accessories. Optional
wide angle and telephoto converter lenses extend the photographer’s creative potential, while the optional battery pack, powered
by six AA-size alkaline batteries incorporates a second shutter button for portrait/vertical position shooting.
FEATURES
Electronic Viewfinder (EVF)
8x Zoom-Nikkor Lens
◆ Nikon's prowess in optics has never been more evident
than in the camera’s newly developed 8x Zoom-Nikkor lens
which offers an amazing focal range of 35-280mm (35mm
equivalent). Capture wideangle to super-telephoto images,
plus close-ups as close as 1.2˝ in macro macro mode or
with Super-telephoto Macro.
◆ The lens features two ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) lens
elements to minimize chromatic abberation, for crisp,
clear shots—even up close. Add an optional wide angle
converter or 1.5x teleconverter to extend the shooting
range from 28mm to 420m (35mm equivalent). And for
even greater magnification, the 5700 offers 4x digital zoom
capability for an amazing 32x total zoom range.
◆ Super Integrated Coating (SIC) applied to the lens simulta-
neously reduces chromatic abberation while increasing
sharpness and contrast.
◆ Combined with the 5.0 effective megapixels, you get
incredibly crisp, clear images - even close-up - with vibrant
color and sharp contrast. And the super-wide focal range
presents opportunities, which can certainly stimulate even
the most ardent photographers.
◆ The Coolpix 5700 uses an electronic viewfinder (EVF) which is
basically a 180,000-pixel LCD with an anti-reflective coating, for a
enhanced frame coverage and a bright view.
◆ The EVF’s information and
menu screens include
exposure settings,
camera mode settings,
and battery
information. A
diopter adjustment
is also provided.

Pro Shooting
◆ 256-segment matrix metering, top shutter
◆ Nikon’s exclusive Best Shot Selector
(BSS) automatically selects the
“sharpest” from a series of consecutive
shots — especially valuable during macro
or telephoto shooting.
◆ Noise Reduction Mode goes beyond the
limits of conventional digital photography, employing a multiple exposure technique to eliminate intrusive background
noise buildup from the CCD and deliver
extended time exposures with excellent
results.
◆ Noise Reduction also includes a Clear
MB-E5700
Batery Pack
◆ White Balance Bracketing automatically
shoots the same scene with three different white balance settings, ensuring
greater color accuracy in all conditions.
◆ Engineered for rapid response, you’re
always ready to shoot. Shutter release
lag time and other functions—from
start-up to zoom, autofocus an image
processing– are dramatically fast.
◆ Offers a top shutter speed of 1/4000
second and can record 320 x 240 QVGA
movies at 15 fps for up to 60 seconds.
◆ Capture up to three full-size (2560 x
1920) images at 3 fps in Continuous
High mode or 1.5 fps in Low mode.
Multi-shot 16 takes sixteen VGA-size
(640 x 480) pictures consecutively at 3
fps, and records them as a single fullsize images. When speed is essential,
Ultra High-Speed Continuous mode lets
you take up to 100 QVGA-size (320 x
240) pictures at 30 fps.
◆ Vari-angle LCD monitor makes shooting
easy in virtually any position. Design
protects the LCD when not being used.
RAW Mode
◆ Exclusively for the Coolpix 5700, the
optional MB-E5700 Battery Pack uses 6
AA batteries for extended battery life,
and features its own shutter release button, making it ideal for vertical shooting.
◆ Saturation Control Mode offers increased
flexibility in digital photography, where
instant results from a printer or monitor
without manipulating the image is key.
Control color saturation in 5 steps (from
+2 to -2) based on your final output goals.
◆ Built-in automatic flash actually pops up
to reduce red-eye. You can also attach a
SB-800AF to the built-in hot shoe if more
light is required. Once an external
Speedlite is attached it overrides the
built-in flash, but you can set them to fire
both simultaneously in situations if even
more light is desired
Unlike the Coolpix 5400, the Coolpix 5700
also offers RAW image data recording
mode, a feature usually found in
professional digital SLR cameras. RAW
images can be viewed on the LCD
monitor. This mode is extremely valuable
to photographers who may not have the
time to make detailed camera settings
prior to shooting, and must adjust images
after they have been captured.
By using the optional Nikon Capture 4.0
software, you can adjust the exposure
and white balance of RAW image data or
NEF (Nikon Electronic Format) on a PC
before the image is completed and ready
for printing. This flexibility allows you to
correct for unusual lighting, under- or
overexposure and other issues. Postprocessing potential and image quality
are greatly enhanced.

Once water enters the body of a digital camera, it can damage the motor, CPU, and
many other components inside. So Olympus developed an exclusive double chassis
protection system that seals the gaps between the metal pieces that make up the
outer body. To ensure that water does not penetrate to the inner workings of the
camera, it is effectively double-clad in a skin-tight suit of plastic and metal that
protects the interior components.
The second problem was how to protect the camera's buttons, switches, cable
sockets, and battery compartment, which must be exposed to allow user access.
Because digital cameras have many more such components than film cameras, this
was no small challenge. But after much trial and error, a solution was finally found:
an all-new, all-weather sealing technology that uses a specially coated and extremely durable rubber compound to seal the minute gaps around buttons and other
exposed electrical items. The same sealing technology was also used around the
lens barrel and other moving lens parts.
Finally, before leaving the factory, the cameras are placed in a special all-weather
test chamber, and sprayed with water from six directions for five full minutes, at a
water delivery rate of 10 liters per minute—much more severe than anything the
camera will be subjected to in actual use— providing an extra measure of worryfree performance.
Conveniences
◆ Trim, compact dimensions are perfect
for shirt pockets and small purses
◆ All-weather body means you can take
them just about anywhere. They can
withstand light rain or water splashed

color.
◆ An integrated flash diffuser panel lets
you utilize your camera's internal flash
for lighting purposes.
◆ Easy-to-see LCD panel giving you the

With excellent all-round optical-digital performance, the MIC-D offers an exciting new
way to observe the natural world. Instead of being observed through conventional
eyepieces, the MIC-D image is displayed on the monitor of a personal computer- thus
enabling simultaneous viewing by multiple persons plus easy and affordable image
capture. And since MIC-D images are digital, processing them is quick and easy: users
can store, discard or edit their images, print them out, post them on a website, attach
them to an e--mail or include them in a report.

DIGITAL CAMERAS
True 8 x 10˝ Photo-Quality, Digital Printer
Print affordable photos up to 8 x 10˝ from your own home with or without a computer.
A high-speed, photo-quality printer, the P-400 produces five different print sizes up to true
8 x 10˝ in only 75 seconds for either glossy or matte finish print. Other P-440 print sizes
include Postcard, Photo-Album, Index and A5 Wide.
The P-440 can also automatically print up to 50 copies of the same image. And prints
emerge in archival condition - dry, durable and ready to share. A protective laminate
overcoat resists water, scratching, moisture, fading and fingerprints.
But this is much more than just a home printer. Using dye-sublimation technology
that far surpasses laser and inkjet printers, the P-440’s level of output makes it
perfect for fields where an advanced level of quality and detail are critical. This
includes industrial and architectural designs, as well as scientific applications. A
“must-have” for anyone seriously involved in digital photography.

FEATURES
High Performance
◆ True, continuous-tone dye-sublimation

prints (in 75 seconds) with superb color
reproduction for high output quality. In
addition, a laminate layer is applied to
helps protect your prints.
◆ Print directly from removable xD-Picture
Card or PCMCIA Type II cards for Memory
Stick, SmartMedia, and CompactFlash,
simply by inserting the cards into a slot

◆ To make the printing process even easier,
Olympus incorporated PictBridge technology into the P10 allowing direct connection of PictBridge-enabled digital cameras via a USB 1.1 cable. You can also
connect the P-440 to a PC or Mac via USB
for printing.
Print Modes
The P-440 is a workhorse that produces five
different print sizes up to true 8 x 10˝ in
only 75 seconds for either glossy or matte
finish prints. Other P-440 print sizes include
Postcard, Photo-Album, Index and A5 Wide.
Print modes include:
• Full-size images (maximum printing area
of 8 x 10˝)
• Single-sheet photo album (1-6 images per
page with background image)
• Postcard (2 or 4 postcards per page)
• Index sheet (45-260 images per page)
• Multiple print mode (up to 50 copies at a
time for one print selection).
• Printing functions include, signature
stamp, background template, frame print,
filter, date print, rotation and trimming.
P-400 Printer
For those on a budget, who would still love to get this quality
and size printing, the P-400 Printer is ideal. Very similar with
the same print engine, the P-400 offers a little smaller 7.64 x
10˝ maximum printing area, with a slightly slower 90 second
per print output. It also does not feature PictBridge Technology
and it only has a B&W LCD monitor. It does print directly from
a SmartMedia, CompactFlash, or Memory Stick, and can print
directly from a computer via parallel port or USB.

cable provides another way to preview
and select images before printing.
◆ Comes with decorative matting, so you
can frame your photographs yourself.
Choose from a variety of borders
including metallic or 3-D textures. You

P-10
Compact 4 x 6˝ Photo Printer
DIGITAL CAMERAS
Make vivid, borderless color prints at home with a printer that’s almost as small as
the 4 x 6˝ output it produces. Incorporating a bold new design, the compact, silvertoned, cube-like P-10 features can produce vivid 3.5 x 5˝ or 4 x 6˝ photo-lab-quality,
edge-to-edge color prints with or without borders in 44 seconds - making it the
fastest dye-sublimation printer of its kind on the market today. And because the
P-10 prints at the most popular sizes, there's no need to use scissors to trim prints.
In addition, the P-10 incorporates PictBridge technology so users can bypass their
computers and connect PictBridge-enabled digital cameras directly to the P-10 via
a USB 1.1 cable. Once connected, they can begin printing right away. The P-10 is a
mere 7.5 x 7.7˝, making it a stylish space-saver that's ideal for a shelf or desktop.
A blue faceplate on the front of the printer has a see-through window to watch prints
as they’re made. Prints from the P-10 emerge in archival condition - dry, durable and ready to share.
A protective laminate overcoat resists water, scratching, moisture, fading and fingerprints.
◆ Choose between true borderless edge-to-
edge prints or, for a more classic look,
prints with borders.
◆ Connects directly to PictBridge-enabled
digital cameras or computer via USB.
Dye-Sublimation Technology
In contrast to inkjet printers,
Olympus precision dye-sublimation
printers do not lay down colors as
individual dots that can be detected
at close range. Instead, heat vaporizes colors that saturate the photo
paper to create smooth, realistic,
continuous-tone images. These colors
permeate the surface of the paper,
creating a gentle gradation at the
edges of each pixel. Because the
color infuses the paper, it is also less
vulnerable to fading and distortion
over time. In addition, prints from the
P-10, P-400, and P-440, emerge in
archival condition – dry, durable and
ready to share. A protective laminate
overcoat resists water, scratching,
moisture, fading and fingerprints.
◆ Print your choice of 3.5 x 5˝ or 4 x 6˝
sizes—in under 45 seconds
◆ Remarkably small 7.5 x 7.7˝ footprint lets
the P-10 complement - and not clutter any desk, home office, etc.
◆ The P-10 includes AC Adapter, Paper Tray
with 3.5 x 5˝ Conversion Tray, software
and Starter Kit (ink ribbon cartridge for 5
prints and 5 sheets of 4 x 6˝ paper).

DMC-FZ1
2.1-Megapixel ‘Lumix’ Digital Camera with 12x Optical Zoom and
Leica DC Vario-Elmarit Lens
A high-performance, quick-response camera ideal for sports and wildlife
photography, the DMC-FZ1 features the DC Vario-Elmarit 12x optical zoom
lens (equivalent to a 35-420mm lens on a 35mm camera), allowing it to
take ultra-telephoto shots that capture the dynamics of a
distant subject. Available in black or chrome, the
DMC-FZ1 features a 2-megapixel CCD, advanced
MEGA Optical Image Stabilizer, 8 shooting modes
including a special panning mode, 4 frames per second
“burst” shooting, and a supplied lens hood to diminish
flare and ghosting when photographing extremely
bright scenes. And the DMC-FZ1 packs all this
technology into a body weighing only 11.2 oz. With its
superb image rendering and brilliant telephoto performance,
this incredibly lightweight, easy-to-use camera opens the door to exciting new creative possibilities.
FEATURES
Venus Engine LSI
◆ Conventional LSI systems generate a lumi-
nance signal using only the green component of the image captured by the primary color CCD. Panasonic’s Venus
Engine LSI improves on this by generating
a signal using all three colors (red, green,
blue) for improved diagonal image resolution resulting in rich, expressive images.
◆ When the luminance signal is extracted
from the pixels by conventional engine,
there is a tendency for colors to bleed
due to false signals generated at the color
borders. The Venus Engine solves this
problem by applying a low pass filter to
areas where colors change. The resulting
images are beautifully smooth, with sharp
color edges.
◆ This LSI also handles image processing,
LCD functions, and even writing data to
the memory card all in parallel, for an
overall quick camera response—so you
never miss a shot.
◆ Shutter time lag is reduced to just 0.1 sec-
ond. Shutter interval is also improved,
giving the FZ1 a quick, responsive performance ensuring you don’t miss any
sudden shooting opportunities.
PHOTO - VIDEO - PRO AUDIO
Continuous AF
◆ Continuous AF function automatically
tracks the focus to the camera’s movement. You get a clear, sharp focus at all
times—even when shooting a moving

MEGA Optical Image Stabilizer
◆ Using technology developed by
Panasonic in their digital video cameras,
the MEGA Optical Image Stabilizer offsets
unintentional hand movement while
you're taking pictures to give you clear,
sharp images even when taking handheld
telephoto shots or shooting at night.
◆ The DMC-FZ1 features an optical image
stabilizer in which a gyro sensor detects
even tiny amounts of hand motion and
integrally links the lens control to camera
movement.
◆ Unlike digital systems and their “pseudo”
compensation, this optical system provides precise, accurate compensation
with no image quality degradation.

Despite its hefty size, the 400mm– class
F2.8 telephoto (for 35mm film cameras)
is favored by many photographers for its
brightness. Now you can get the same
level of specifications in a small, remarkably lightweight camera.
◆ With an incredible 12x optical
zoom equivalent to a 35-420mm
lens on a 35mm camera and F2.8
brightness across the entire 12x
zoom range, this exciting lens puts
you in control of a wide variety of
photo techniques.
◆ Capture broad, sweeping vistas with
wide-angle shots. Take portraits that fix the subject in clear, sharp focus while
applying a softer focus to the background. Or simply aim into the distance and
catch dynamic 12x telephoto shots.
◆ With this lens, Lumix introduces a new zoom lens design that uses 13 elements
in eight groups to provide sharp image rendering and outstanding color reproduction. Four aspherical elements compensate for spherical abberations (commonly found in large diameter lenses) using fewer lens elements. This, in turn,
helps the FZ1 achieve its ultra compact size and remarkable light weight.
◆ Unique lens multi-coating technology minimizes the flare that can cloud images
and ghosts caused by excessive light passing through the lens. You can capture
scenes with excellent ambience even in difficult situations, such as when there
is backlighting.
