Zeiss "ZF" announcement planned for January 18
Earlier this week, Digital Photography Review published a story highlighting the fact that the camera/cine lens section of the Carl Zeiss web site was touting an upcoming product announcement for "Millions of SLR Photographers." About that time, the Zeiss web site changed to reveal a product name for the upcoming announcement: "ZF." Simultaneous with the Zeiss site update, enterprising web detectives unearthed not-yet-published graphics on the Zeiss server that strongly suggest the company is developing or adapting lenses for Nikon's F-mount. Now, a message we received from a Zeiss representative today says that the ZF "teaser campaign" running on the Zeiss web site will continue through until the date when all will be revealed: January 18, 2006.

Bill Atkinson updates free profile, profile target downloads
Nature photographer and fine-art printer Bill Atkinson - better known to early computer geeks as one of the creators of the Macintosh computer - has updated his collection of free profiles for newer Epson wide format printers. Over the past several weeks, Atkinson has been assembling on his web site profiles for use with the Epson Stylus Pro 4800, 7800 and 9800 wide format inkjets. He has taken the measurement data from a custom 4096-patch RGB target and generated 48 separate profiles for Premium Luster and Premium Semimatte, and 32 for Premium Glossy. Each profile is comprised of a particular combination of printer driver settings and gamut mapping for the perceptual rendering intent, owing to his use of five different programs to generate the profiles. The different gamut mappings, says Atkinson, provide for a "bouquet" of conversion options for users of these printers, and a unique opportunity to find the optimum gamut mapping for the type of photo being printed.
