Subject: PDNewswire: Photokina News, Canon 5D Mark II video, LIFE revived, From Assistant to Pro - Part 2 - Sept. 25, 2008

Dear reader,

This week we posted an interview with photographer Vincent Laforet about how he created a high-definition mini-movie using a prototype of the new digital SLR from Canon--and we show the video he created. We have all the news from Photokina, including Leica's new 37.5 MP digital camera, Adobe CS4, metadata, medium-format cameras and a wealth of new, bigger storage cards. This week Time and Getty Images announced their plan to re-launch the LIFE brand as a web site for consumers. And we have our second audio slideshow with a former assistant who explains how she recently launched her photography career. Plus lots and lots of Who's Shooting What, People on the Move, and more.


Time and Getty Plan to Revive LIFE Online is set to launch next year with images from LIFE archive and Getty Images. Aimed at consumers, it will try to make money off advertising and e-commerce.
