Large format cameras, in the sense of "cameras that take large sheets of film," are ever rarer at photokina. There are still plenty of cameras, and sometimes (it seems) almost as many manufacturers, but because so many of the manufacturers are so tiny, making a few score cameras a year, they are known by word of mouth in the large format "fine art"...

Every two years the international photo trade descends upon Cologne, Germany, to show their wares and vie for bragging rights over who has the highest megapixel count, greatest zoom ratio, or most archival fine art paper. It is also the place where prototypes are kept under glass or shown in curtained back rooms and where alliances are made and broken. For example, at this...

While we concentrate our main energy on the PMA Show held here in the US (our report on that show will be in our July 2007 issue), photokina does represent a milestone in photography in its international appeal and breadth...

The digital SLR category continues to grow. Several manufacturers introduced new models during the photokina show; Canon, Panasonic, and Sony had unveiled their new entries sometime before the European trade show, so they are not included in this report. In any event, it's clear that the 10-megapixel or higher resolution category is becoming the norm in all types of...

During the photokina 2006 show, many new digicams were introduced with higher resolution: 10-megapixel sensors are now typical in the upscale models while 7-megapixel sensors are becoming the norm in many other categories. In terms of features, larger LCD monitors, at least 2.5" in size, have become standard; touch-screen LCDs (discussed later) have been introduced and...
