New SLR With Big Features
Capture high-resolution, full-frame images with the Canon EOS 5D. The new SLR boasts a 12.8-megapixel, full-frame sensor so you can use all of your wide-angle lenses at their expected angle of view. The camera's 2.5-inch LCD screen lets you view and edit your images easily, and a nine-point autofocus system helps you take sharp images quickly. A Picture Style function controls color, contrast and sharpness in camera, and the Canon DIGIC II image processor limits noise while allowing you to shoot 3 fps for up to 17 RAW images in one burst. Without a lens attached, the body's weight and dimensions are 1.7 pounds and 6x4.4x3 inches, making it lightweight and easy to carry. List Price: $3,299.

Calibrate your digital projector and projection screen much like your computer LCD screen with ColorVision's Spyder2PRO Studio 2.0. When placed a short distance from the projection screen, the hardware reads its red, green and blue values, which the included wizard-driven software analyzes to create an ICC profile. The software ensures your presentations will have consistent and true color. List Price: $299. Contact: ColorVision, (800) 554-8688, www.colorvision.com.
