Darkroom Products

Every photokina it seems that fewer and fewer companies show new darkroom products. Unlike film, where technology is constantly advancing, darkroom technology is more static. The basic design of the photographic enlarger hasn't changed much since the earliest days...

Greetings From The Planet Pixel

At photokina 2002 I got a glimpse of photography's future and--surprise--it was digital. Was it just a coincidence that the building next door to my Fawlty Towers hotel was called "Planet Pixel?"

The question...

Summing It Up

Everyone's photokina is different. We look for what interests us; we discover different things by accident; we see (to a considerable extent) what we want to see. Admittedly, we are also helped or hindered by the manufacturers' willingness to tell us...

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.

35mm SLR Cameras And Lenses

In the past, we have always found at least a half dozen new SLR cameras at the photokina trade show. That has changed, at least for now, as most manufacturers devote their R&D resources to digital equipment. During my five days of touring the many...

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...
