Canon Launches “Power of a Shot” Campaign

Canon USA has launched a television campaign that “shows how images can magnify the subtle feelings in everyday life.” Designed to popularise the company’s PowerShot line of digital compact cameras, the campaign also involves the launch of a unique Facebook application that identifies the emotions of a user’s photo collection. The application scans a chosen photo album for a variety of emotions – including passion, love and nostalgia –then creates a unique visual summary of the specific feelings that reside in the image collection. Users can then share this visual summary with their Facebook friends and discuss the emotion they’ve captured through their own photography. The application, and more information on the Power of a Shot campaign, can be accessed at the website below.

DxOMark Introduces “Perceptual Megapixel” Score

DxO Labs have launched a new measure of lens sharpness, dubbed “Perceptual Megapixel,” on their DxOMark website. Designed by DxOMark experts, Perceptual Megapixel attempts to quantify the sharpness “perceived” by the photographer while taking into account all the characteristics and defects of the lens and the camera. “This new unit of measure replaces the MTF scores that we have been publishing up until now. Perceptual Mpix weights MTF measurements with the sensitivity to detail of the human visual system, thus providing a score for the sharpness perceived by our eyes. We think this new measurement will be more understandable and practical for photographers who use our website,” explained Frédéric Guichard, Chief Scientific Officer for DxO Labs. The company also points out that the perceived resolution for a camera can be significantly different from the native resolution depending on the lenses with which it is coupled.

Kodak Announces Sale of Patents

Kodak has sold its digital imaging patent portfolio for approximately 525 million dollars.

Perez, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said. “Our progress has accelerated over the past several weeks as we prepare to emerge as a strong, sustainable company. This proposed transaction enables Kodak to repay a substantial amount of our initial DIP loan, satisfy a key condition for our new financing facility, and position our Commercial Imaging business for further growth and success.”
