As I walked the trade show floor at the recent PMA, it was interesting to see how much software was being offered to meet specific needs, rather than attempt to be the end-all and be-all. I discovered software that offers solutions not meant to replace Adobe's Photoshop, but rather help photographers improve their ability to achieve common and specific tasks.

It appears someone hit the dimmer switch when it came to lighting this year: the number of entries was sporadic, at best. But the good news is that there were a few shining lights. In strobe lighting the focus was entirely on self-contained monopacs, notably in lighting designed with digital control, smaller and easier-to-use lights, and one super-lightweight battery...

As is our wont each year we take to the aisles of the PMA Show, the annual and largest photo equipment show in the US, in search of new and innovative products for photographers. This year we had six reporters, including Jon Canfield, Jack Neubart, Jason Schneider, Robert Mayer, Peter Burian, and, new with us at PMA this year, Ibarionex Perello, covering their respective beats;...

Just keep your eyes peeled and you'll be rewarded with fascinating tidbits, ranging from strange photo accessories to clever upgrades of traditional items, to exciting new technologies, some...

The "new" medium format cameras shown at PMA '99 were, by and large, the same ones previewed late last year at photokina and Photo Plus East. The good news is that those early teasers are now beginning to arrive at your local dealers as...

This year's PMA trade show was extraordinarily large, having many more diversified exhibitors than ever before coupled with a noticeable increase in attendees making it even more difficult to try to rapidly go from one place to another.

Although not all of the filter manufacturers had something new to announce, I was able to get a sense of each product line and the directions they're headed in.

Lee Filters introduced their new Gel Snap Polyester filter holder. The...

Probably the most important message from PMA 1999 was that you have even more choice and versatility than ever when it comes to producing images. There is more and more integration of traditional silver halide technology with digital technology. Even...

Coming as it does shortly after the MacWorld Expo and shortly before the Seybold graphic arts show, some companies did not launch new printers or flat-bed scanners at PMA. In fact, there appeared to be more new film scanners than flat-beds, and you can...

My first impression entering PMA '99, a little before the trade show opened, was provided by MegaVision with their new S3 2048x3072 pixel medium format digital camera back for single shot use with all types of illumination. This new chip, also...

As regular readers of Shutterbug well know, my main area of interest is large format--which is not, unfortunately, particularly well represented at PMA. My brief was, therefore, also to cover studio equipment; accessories, bags, tripods, and the unusual.

“Of all of our inventions for mass communication, pictures still speak the most universally understood language.”—Walt Disney

 

It’s a photokina year and you know what that means; all of the camera manufacturers will be holding off their newest SLRs for launch at the big show in Germany this fall. While Canon was not at PMA, they officially launched the EOS-1D Mark IV...

A good example of how digital picture frames have changed from passive displays with looping slide shows to interactive devices is the “concept” frame system from Casio, dubbed the Digital Art Frame. The frame supports playback of Adobe’s Flash Lite 3.1 content, with future plans for network downloads. Currently you have access to different types of clocks and calendars for...

This year we’ve seen many fine lenses come onto the scene, many with new optical elements designed to enhance performance while making the lens lighter and more affordable.

Nikon announced two new lenses aimed primarily at FX-format shooters (but usable with DX format). The AF-S Nikkor 24mm f/1.4G ED ($2199) is a fast lens well suited to low-light landscapes or expansive...
