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.")...

Lighting And Supports

Everywhere you turn in Las Vegas, there are lights flashing, or should we say, flashy lights? And while the Las Vegas Convention Center was not awash in the bright, showy lights of the Strip, still the lights of photography shone in their own small way. As did tripods...

Best Of Show

Fujifilm FinePix F700
Although I was not covering digital cameras, I could not resist checking out one model, the new Fujifilm FinePix F700. Encased in a handsome aluminum body, this camera is not only packed with advanced SLR-type...

35mm APS Compact Cameras

Because many consumers still consider digital cameras as "too expensive" or "too complicated," the lens/shutter 35mm and APS zoom cameras continue to sell quite well. The trend is toward smaller and lighter cameras at ever...

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 Lenses For 35mm And Digital SLR Cameras

As several manufacturers are releasing new SLR cameras--both 35mm and digital--we're also seeing far more new lenses than we did in the past few months. The new lenses range from very affordable zooms to ultra wides and others...

Greetings From The Planet Pixel

At photokina 2002 I got a glimpse of photography's future and--surprise--it was digital. Was it just a coincidence that the building next door to my Fawlty Towers hotel was called "Planet Pixel?"

The question...

Darkroom Products

Every photokina it seems that fewer and fewer companies show new darkroom products. Unlike film, where technology is constantly advancing, darkroom technology is more static. The basic design of the photographic enlarger hasn't changed much since the earliest days...

35mm SLR Cameras And Lenses

In the past, we have always found at least a half dozen new SLR cameras at the photokina trade show. That has changed, at least for now, as most manufacturers devote their R&D resources to digital equipment. During my five days of touring the many...

New Shoe Mount Flash

As conventional and digital SLR cameras become more and more sophisticated, dedicated flash units must be upgraded in order to remain compatible. Since the camera manufacturers already offer high tech flash units for their systems, we did not see any new...

Bags and Cases

If I were to mention every pouch and bag for digital cameras, I could fill the next three issues of Shutterbug, and I must admit that after a while they all blend together. Only a few stand out in my mind, and they tend to be the really well made leather pouches or bags.

Summing It Up

Everyone's photokina is different. We look for what interests us; we discover different things by accident; we see (to a considerable extent) what we want to see. Admittedly, we are also helped or hindered by the manufacturers' willingness to tell us...

On The Film Front

As Tom Shay from Fuji pointed out, film technology is changing so fast that the manufacturers seldom wait for a show to announce advances or bring out a new film. Consequently, you may have seen announcements about new films before photokina.
