Although digital cameras attracted the lion's share of attention at this year's PMA show, the compact lens/shutter cameras still outsell such models by a vast margin. Most manufacturers continue to offer both formats: 35mm and Advanced Photo System (APS or 24mm). The 35mm format has...

In this high tech era, I expected to find a half dozen brand-new 35mm SLRs packed with computerized capabilities at the PMA show. However, this year's show produced only a single pair of that type, since others were unveiled at last fall's photokina. Instead, I saw a surprising...

Since the compact lens/shutter cameras still outsell SLR models by a vast margin, we found numerous new models at photokina. Most manufacturers offer both formats: 35mm and Advanced Photo System (APS or 24mm). Because general features tend to be very similar in both types of cameras, I am including both...

35mm SLR Cameras

Although SLR camera sales have increased substantially since 1997, most manufacturers have devoted the past six months to designing new lens/shutter models and digital cameras with high-resolution capabilities. Consequently, we did not find many new 35mm SLR...

A Personal Look At Digital Imaging

While the annual PMA show is rooted in traditional photography, digital technology is becoming more and more a part of the event. So much so that it was a challenge to see everything that might be considered digital at the show, but I tried. Any...
