photokina is a month older than I am: the first show was in May, 1950. The show is so vast -- so many halls, often on two floors per hall -- that it is easy to forget this fourth dimension: time.

I've only been going there for 26 years -- and, to be fair, I've missed two in that time, so I've only actually attended 11 shows. But going to the same show, every two years (with gaps), for about 46% of my life, means that I don't view it quite the same way as those with less of a history. I'm not alone. The late Bert Keppler; Arnold Crane, with whom I renew my acquaintance every two years; they know (or knew) far more about the show than I.

The Return of Petersen’s PHOTOgraphic Magazine
by Ron Leach, Publisher

Most avid photographers, including loyal readers of Shutterbug, will recall Petersen’s PHOTOgraphic magazine which ceased publication in late 2005. In our farewell editorial we said, “It is with a mixture of melancholy, gratitude, and optimism that PHOTOgraphic’s 33-year run has come to an end.” Well, the “melancholy” was then and the “optimism”  is now because we are pleased to announce the re-launch of PHOTOgraphic in a unique, bold format.

Epson P-7000 Multimedia Viewer
A Take-Along Download/Viewing Device
by George Schaub

I recently did something I never did before—travel with my digital camera without a computer. I admit to feeling nervous about the decision, as my modus operandi in the past had been to always backup images every evening, burn a DVD and keep both images on the desktop and the DVD in my carry-on case. Habits are hard to break, but having along the Epson P-7000 Multimedia Viewer was both a test of the device and a leap of faith. If it worked out I could see myself saving time at check-in, and saving weight and space in my bag. It would also save my laptop from the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune often encountered on the road.

With digital SLRs now offering 20+ megapixels for each frame, what do you believe are your realistic needs in terms of file size for your images. Is 20+ MP (resulting in 60MB+ opened files) overkill, or do you feel that the more MP the better?
