PMA Coverage in our June, 2006 Issue

PMA Coverage in our June, 2006 Issue

by George Schuab

I wanted to give you a Coming Attraction of our June, 2006 Shutterbug issue. It's filled with new products, trends and technology from the recent PMA Show in Orlando, FL. This is the biggest photo/imaging trade show in the US, and we had a team of reporters covering every facet of the event. We have reports on new digital SLRs, lenses, scanners, printers, lighting, film and our ever-popular "Weird and Wonderful", products only a photographer could love.

We have been posting new product news on our web site daily ( during and since the show, but there were so many to cover that we thought we'd give you a sampling of what's to come in our big June show report issue. Subscribers will get this issue in late April/early May, 2006, or you can pick up a copy on your newsstand in the first week of May.
