We were profoundly grateful to George Schaub--our Beloved Helmsman, Chairman, and Leader--for telling us that he didn't want a laundry list of new products. Listing every improvement in electronic flash would take up half the magazine, and it would come down to one generalization for all anyway. Everyone's flashes are becoming more powerful and more...

Having attended the ever-growing PMA trade show for 40 years, I'm used to seeing lots of interesting new items of appeal to general photo enthusiasts. This year was no exception, but new offerings seemed to be primarily in the rapidly expanding digital-oriented category, which other editors were...

Although very few 35mm SLR cameras were introduced at PMA 2004, there was no shortage of new lenses. Many of the new products are very short zooms, necessary for true wide angle effects with digital SLRs or lenses upgraded for greater compatibility in digital photography. Even though this...

It may surprise some readers to discover that the CCD was invented at Bell Labs in 1969, a fine year for wine, songs, and cars--think of the awesome Plymouth Road Runner. CMOS is a little older, having been developed in 1948. While curmudgeonly writers and editors patiently wait for this...

Everywhere you turned throughout the big PMA halls you'd find more and more accessories for digital photography. Perhaps the biggest category was new memory cards and drives, storage devices, and portable memory download solutions. And then there were the increasing numbers of devices for both...

Because the manufacturers are devoting the vast majority of their resources to developing digital equipment, we're seeing few new 35mm cameras. At PMA 2004 for example, only Canon and Konica Minolta announced new 35mm SLRs and not a single distributor showed a new rangefinder camera that...

Like with all technology driven product segments, "bigger is better" now applies to the digicam marketplace. While 5- to 6-megapixel cameras dominated 2003, this year will be when 8-megapixel cameras battle for supremacy. While the pace of change in the industry has pushed megapixel...

Just as when you send out five photographers to the same spot and they all come back with a different picture, our editors came away from the big PMA Show with one or two (or a few) products that caught their eye. Their choices reflect their professional interest, how the product might help make...

Just when you thought you'd seen it all, along come some revolutionary changes and surprising introductions in point-and-shoot digital cameras--enough so as to make me want to go out and buy several of the new digicams shown at this year's PMA. While some may view the prosumer...

Digital back makers for medium and large format cameras happily search for the ultimate image-making machine. In my view, they may be cheerfully unaware that the devices they are busily producing may not have anything to attach them to in a few years because no company is making affordable, under $2000...

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...
