One of the Sigma lenses on showPress release:
The seminars for the ePHOTOzine stand at Focus have now been finalised. Click on this link to see all the exciting guests that are preparing to entertain you. Click here.
While millions of images stay unprinted, stored on computers, CDs,
memory cards and in all sorts of other high-tech shoe boxes on a shelf
in some virtual cupboard, there’s nevertheless a fast growing
demand for state of the art software and technology for turning
ordinary photographs into Great Photographs.
And nowhere will that demand be more clearly illustrated than at Focus
on Imaging 2007
where visitors will be able to check out the latest
offerings from internationally acclaimed and well established companies
like Adobe and Corel on one hand and, on the other hand, from new
generation companies which could well become household names one day.
Some of the software those visitors will be interested in –
there were getting on for 29,000 of them in 2006 - as they explore
Halls 9 and 10 at the NEC is aimed at professionals, at advertising
studios, graphic designers and others whose work is intended for
publication or for high impact public display.
Other visitors will want to find out more about programs aimed at photo
enthusiasts, for whom the quality of their images of sunrises, sunsets
and sunlit landscapes, sea birds and seals, spring flowers, squirrels,
spiders webs and sports events (and perhaps their secretaries?) imposes
a more personal demand.
Amateur photographers, home computer users who want to make the most of
the family portraits he or she has taken, along with those shot at
weddings, christenings and other milestone celebrations or on holiday,
will also want to learn more about the more user friendly programs that
have been written more for them.
And there will be mixed business and end user interest in the simple to
use software which is built into kiosks or available as downloads from
the internet for one-click enhancements, red eye removal, for instance,
image sharpening, increased flash and so on.
But it’s not just from the software companies themselves that
visitors will be able to get the information they’re after.
One of Focus’s biggest attractions is the number of stands
offering free, live demonstrations and mini seminars, often given by
leading names from the industry, and where visitors can pick up crucial
hints and tips.
However, Focus is far from being exclusively software. All the
hardware that’s needed to create great images will be on
show, from cameras and lenses, both digital and analogue, through
lighting and studio equipment to minilabs and pro lab processing
systems. They will be alongside consumables for both darkroom and
computer users and a vast choice of albums, frames and other display
media, with advice aplenty from the country’s major
professional photographic associations.
And don’t forget the Focus Talks programme. Focus favourites
Jeff Ascough and Malcolm Mathieson
will once again be giving practical
advice on how photographers can turn creativity into cash. Visit www.focus-on-imaging.co.uk/talks
for full details of the programme and booking information.
Keep an eye on the Focus website, www.focus-on-imaging.co.uk
for more information as it unrolls.
Meanwhile, here’s a brief, mostly alphabetical, run down on
what you’ll find at the NEC at the end of February. Remember
that while some exhibitors have already revealed their plans for the
show, others are playing their Focus cards close to their chest and
won’t be spilling the beans until closer to the February 25th
opening day. Watch that website!
Cameras, lenses, accessories, studio equipment

Polar Bears International, an organisation dedicated to understanding

temperatures to rise, sea ice to break up and the majestic polar bear
to lose the very ground it walks on.
Lowepro’s top man, Uwe Mummenhoff, will be giving a number of
talks on the stand, describing the initiatives the company is
organising and sharing his experiences following a recent trip to
Churchill in Canada.

From being a leading and long-standing trade supplier of photo frames,
albums and accessories, all of which will be on display at Focus, Kenro
has grown to become one of the most dynamic companies in the photo and
digital market, with a vastly expanded product base.

company says, is the range of Japanese-made, digitally-optimised Tokina
DSLR lenses. Kenro

these optics and the whole series will be on view at Focus, including

’s already extensive catalogue was boosted at the end of
2006 by two new lenses and a new digital camera, all of which will be
showcased at Focus.
However, as we went to press it was uncertain if the
company’s SD14 DSLR, unveiled at Photokina, would be there
because of last minute production delays.
The new lenses are an 18-50mm F2.8 EX DC MACRO lens and an18-200mm
F3.5-6.3 DC OS. The macro lens has a large aperture of F2.8 throughout
the entire zoom range, a minimum focusing distance of 20cm
(7.9”) and a maximum magnification of 1:3, making it ideal
for close-up photography, while the other is exclusively designed for
digital SLR cameras and is capable of covering a wide range of focal
lengths from wide angle to telephoto.
Alongside them and other examples from right across the Sigma range is
expected to be the company’s new DP1 high-end compact digital
camera. It features a 14 megapixel Foveon X3 direct image sensor (2652
× 1768 × 3 layers) as used in the Sigma SD14
digital SLR and 16.6mm F4 Sigma lens, with a wide angle field of view
equivalent to 28mm on a 35mm film camera.
says self effacingly that its stand will be much the same
as usual, with a large stock of Manfrotto tripods at special show
prices. However, there will be the first UK showing of a new concept
Stroboframe flash bracket, designed to give the user of a large
professional DSLR more convenience and speed of use, and several new
products which Novoflex launched at Photokina.
These include the sophisticated VR-System Pro which offers total
control for conventional or multi-row spherical panoramas, but in a
much more compact and lightweight form than competing products. There
are also two new lightweight ball heads, which, because they use
rust-proof materials and no grease, can be immersed in water without
any ill effects. Speed Graphic’s other exclusive German ball
head line, FLM, will have updated models with improved panoramic bases,
and a new accessory base which allows quick and easy levelling of any
head without the user needing to adjust the tripod.
