What do you get when you put six ace reporters into a huge hall filled with photo and imaging gear? In our case, these being our contributors, a bunch of kids in a candy store who deliver the most comprehensive reports available on this annual photo show. Held in Las Vegas in mid winter, the...

There was all kinds of software at PMA 2004, but I would like to pass along some advice to would-be developers who want to get rich making under-$100 software for Windows that lets users manage, edit, print, and do all kinds of tricks. Fuggedaboutit. ACD Systems owns this market. While the Mac...

Tired of wimpy 13x19" prints? Find that 16x20" output is nice but just doesn't have the impact of say, 18x24"? HP's Designjet 130 printer produces larger sizes (up to 24") without unloading the standard tray, and the rear path accommodates thick media, too.

PMA 2003 abounded in lots of digital gear. There were digital camera bags, digital tripods, and so forth so I went looking for digital lens tissue. I failed to find it but found something better from the clever folks at Hakuba (www.hakubausa.com).

New Negative & Transparency Films

During the "Digital Summit" panel discussion at the 2003 PMA Show, one of the speakers offered an analogy that's certainly timely. "To paraphrase Mark Twain," he said, "rumors of the demise of film have...

Power And Performance

I literally got a charge out of seeing the plethora of chargers and both reusable and primary batteries at PMA this year. (By the way, when you see the word "primary," it's the politically correct term for "throwaway.")...
