PRESS RELEASE: Fujifilm Launches Nationwide 'Capture To Print' Seminar Series For Professional Photographers
Free Educational Seminars to Feature Live Demonstrations, Tips to Streamline Photographic Workflow
Valhalla, N.Y., October 17, 2007 - FUJIFILM U.S.A., Inc. today announced the launch of a series of free educational seminars for professional photographers to be held in five cities across the United States. Entitled 'Capture to Print Solutions,' these seminars are designed to inform and educate professional photographers on how Fujifilm's FinePix S5 Pro can be specifically utilized for school, portrait, sports and wedding photography and how they can better streamline their business workflow with a comprehensive range of professional digital imaging solutions.
Fujifilm's 'Capture to Print Solutions' seminar series will kick off on Monday, November 5th in Orlando, Fla., followed by Long Beach, Calif., Sturbridge, Mass., Atlanta, Ga., and Somerset, N.J. At each seminar, Fujifilm Technical Staff Members will demonstrate live studio use of the FinePix S5 Pro with Bar Code Scanner, along with the ASK-2000 and ASK-4000 Digital Photo Printers.
The FinePix S5 Pro is fast becoming the camera of choice for professional event, school, mass market sports and portrait photographers for its all-metal durable body, extended dynamic range, film simulation modes, white balance, low noise and extended ISO range. The FinePix S5 Pro's unique Bar Code Scanner capability enables photographers to keep image databases organized and can be connected directly to the camera to scan data pre-capture so that images can be linked to a school or portrait image database. Fujifilm will also demonstrate how photographers can leverage the ASK-2000 and ASK-4000 Digital Photo Printers to offer lab-quality print fulfillment to customers onsite at special events.
Fujifilm's 'Capture to Print Solutions' seminars will be held in conjunction with partners Express Digital and PhotoLynx. Express Digital and PhotoLynx staff members will demonstrate front-end software applications that enable photographers to shoot tethered or un-tethered and keep track of student records and image databases.
Seminar attendees can hear and see benefits of Fujifilm's IS-1 and IS Pro ultraviolet and infrared cameras for the fine art market and Fujifilm's DigiLabs software which enables photographers to build incremental business by offering their customers photo books, cards and calendar products.
