Workshop Participants Will Be Able To Shoot Unique Images with the Olympus E-300 Single Lens Reflex Camera

Melville, New York, November 21, 2005 - Olympus E-300 digital single reflex cameras will be available for attendees to use on an upcoming 8-day Digital Photography & Imaging Cruise that features workshops for beginning and intermediate photographers. The cruise will embark from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, on March 1, 2006 to the Southern Caribbean on Carnival's new super-liner LEGEND.

The workshop is the sixth in a series offering instruction in digital photography, imaging techniques, and printing in a relaxed learning environment. Scheduled ports of call include St. Maarten, Barbados, and Martinique, each with a distinctive culture.

Workshop attendees will each receive hardware and software gifts from participating sponsors valued at more than $800 and will be able to reserve an 8-megapixel, Olympus E-300 to shoot pictures that would be impossible to capture with most other digital cameras.

"Olympus digital single lens reflex cameras open up a whole new world of photography," said Arthur H. Bleich, lead instructor for the cruise and feature editor of Digital Camera Magazine. "They allow you to change lenses for special effects and to preview the subject through the lens to see exactly how it will turn out. And you don't have to hold the camera at arms length to frame the picture, which can make it difficult to see in bright sunlight and cause unsteadiness."

Up to 30 beginners and intermediates, will participate in lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on use of a wide range of equipment. They will also take photos, have them critiqued, and print them.

Attendees will be able to upload their pictures to their own website or send them via email to friends and family anywhere in the world through the ship's state-of-the-art satellite facilities which allow transmission while the ship is at sea.
