On The Film Front

As Tom Shay from Fuji pointed out, film technology is changing so fast that the manufacturers seldom wait for a show to announce advances or bring out a new film. Consequently, you may have seen announcements about new films before photokina.

Bags and Cases

If I were to mention every pouch and bag for digital cameras, I could fill the next three issues of Shutterbug, and I must admit that after a while they all blend together. Only a few stand out in my mind, and they tend to be the really well made leather pouches or bags.

As noted in my other entry, on cameras and tripods, the number of small manufacturers and distributors of useful accessories and "Weird Stuff"--all those things that don't really fit into the usual categories--has fallen gradually at every PMA I have attended in the last 15...

To detail all the new bags that are introduced at a single show would take up at least one issue of Shutterbug, so what follows is a brief (believe it or not), alphabetical review of the highlights at PMA, with a small rant by way of preface. If you want more information on introductions not described...

A story I heard at this PMA should reassure all darkroom aficionados and quiet some of the doomsayers. A high school with a strong photography course decided that digital was the wave of the future: the wet darkroom was a thing of the past. They therefore closed the wet darkroom and offered only a...

Although everyone at the PMA show wanted to check out the new digital equipment, the compact lens/shutter film cameras still outsell such models. Most manufacturers continue to offer both formats: 35mm and Advanced Photo System (APS or 24mm). Such cameras have been made for decades so we didn't expect to...

We are producing a new generation of "millennials" whose ABCs include MP3, JPEG, and X Box, and whose imaging tools don't include their parents' silver-halide technology. Even toddlers expect to see their photographs on an LCD preview screen a few seconds after Mom or Dad trips the shutter. These...

After having attended the PMA trade show for 38 years I'm still surprised with the number of new, useful, and interesting photographic gadgets that keep showing up in various booths everywhere on the show floor. Somebody always thinks of a new gizmo or gadget that will assist in making some facet...

It seems that every time the
photographic industry gathers these days that there are proposals for
radical changes in how we take and make our images. This year's PMA, held
near world headquarters in Orlando, Florida, once again provedthat...

Whether you own a digital or conventional SLR camera--or both--you certainly need lenses. So, even in this "year of the digital camera," the manufacturers continue expanding their lines. In the recent past, we have seen many new ultra-wide angle lenses, especially targeting those who use digital SLR...

Let's be honest: most photographers, even the most jaundiced and worldly-wise, find it hard to resist a really gorgeous new camera or lens. It makes sense, therefore, to kick off with what was, for me, the camera hit of the show--except that it wasn't officially on display because...

Described by one trade magazine as a "digital lovefest," this year's PMA show did not produce many film-based SLR cameras. Even so, I did find several new models, as well as some new flash units, with ultrahigh tech capabilities. As in past years, the trend is toward smaller and lighter autofocus SLR...
