Flash photography demo for Nikon photographers

Ilse Jurriën : 2008-10-02 16:20:00
Nikon photography at Nikonians booth : Our good friends of Nikonians were also present at the Photokina show 2008. If you happened to miss the booth, the Nikonians undoubtedly attracted your attention by pushing a leaflet into your hands in one of the huge halls. Nikonians is the largest and most active group of Nikon lovers and focuses on the amateur, semipro and professional photographer. The booth of the Nikonians attracted a lot of attention. Through Apple computers, a lot of Nikon equipment and demonstrations by photographers, Pascal Baetens and Gary Fong, the audience was given a good impression of how certain accessories work and which effect they can have. Gary Fong showed his Lightspere system II, an excellent accessory for flash photography.


Canon EOS and PowerShot cameras at Photokina

Canon EOS SLR cameras at Photokina 2008 : Canon did its utmost for the Photokina 2008 and entertained lavishly. It is clear, and I cannot but say, that the current assortment impresses and is quite extensive. From the entry-level PowerShot compact camera up to the newest full frame EOS 5D Mark II digital SLR, everything could be found in the Canon booth. Unlike many other competing brands, Canon was able to attract many visitors with their compact camera line. And for a reason. Canon's new series of compact cameras is different, innovating and a true sign of Canon's power and daring to take the compact camera market seriously, offering sufficient possibilities for innovations.


Casio Exilim cameras at Photokina 2008

Casio Exilim digital cameras at Photokina 2008 : The Casio booth was a bit on the large side for the disappointing amount of visitors that arrived. The current EXILIM compact camera line does not stand out too much, apart from two exceptions. Two cameras are able to attract the attention; the Casio EXILIM Pro F1 and the recently introduced Casio EXILIM FH20. Both models offer a unique feature that makes them stand out from the crowd; and that feature is speed. The pair of them are true racing monsters and therefore all options are present to capture fast action moments right there and then at the Casio booth. Visitors of the Casio booth were invited to try and surpass the record distance (making the golf ball travel a distance as long as possible through an electronic golf club.)


Pentax SLR cameras at Photokina

Ilse Jurriën : 2008-10-01 22:30:00
Pentax digital SLR cameras at Photokina 2008 : Pentax knows how to attract the attention with the introduction of a number of products like D-SLR's, flash and lenses. The focus seems to have diverted from the compact camera assortment to other products. Certainly when we look at the attention that goes to the D-SLR assortment and the Photokina introductions. The Pentax K20 may be the current flagship of Pentax; with the introduction of the Pentax K-m/Pentax K2000 Pentax once again tries to get a grip on the DSLR market for beginning photographers. The size is definitely not to blame. The Pentax K-m/Pentax K2000 is very compact and can easily compete with other models, and stands a good chance for the title: 'compact DSLR of the year'. Even a pimped version of the Pentax K-m / K2000 was showcased and could be admired.


Fujifilm Finepix cameras at Photokina 2008

Ilse Jurriën : 2008-10-01 20:30:00
Fujifilm Finepix digital cameras at Photokina 2008 : If anything became clear at the Photokina 2008, it was the fact that the compact camera desperately needs an innovative boost. There was hardly any news on the field of compact cameras at this world event, it were the advanced digital cameras, D-SLR cameras that surprised us and, of course, the Micro FourThirds System. Even Fujifilm didn’t have a lot to offer, whereas in the past they have always introduced some interesting compact cameras during events like the Photokina, except for a few a FinePix camera models that were introduced the beginning of August. The assortment looks too familiar; there is more of the same stuff.


Panasonic Lumix cameras at Photokina 2008

Dennis Hissink : 2008-10-01 00:10:00
Panasonic DMC-G1 camera at Photokina 2008 : In our opinion, the most elevating news of the Photokina 2008 came from Panasonic. The recently announced Micro FourThirds System, by Panasonic and Olympus, was followed by a massive presentation of the new Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G1 at the Photokina show. The LUMIX G1 caught your eye everywhere you looked in the ambitious Panasonic booth. And in exchange for your driver’s license, you were able to receive a working sample of the Panasonic G1 to get acquainted with the world's first Micro FourThirds System camera on the show floor. A spectacular show around the G1 put even more emphasis on Panasonic's new flagship that played its leading role with verve.


Nikon SLR cameras popular at Photokina

Dennis Hissink : 2008-09-30 00:02:00
Nikon digital system cameras popular at Photokina 2008 : The famous Nikon yellow and black colors dominated a huge part of the gigantic halls of the Photokina show. The booth accurately represented Nikon's presentation in the world in 2008. The huge booth was crowded with people and could have done with some more floor space to be able to accommodate all the visitors. Nikon's DSLR models passed from hand to hand among the eager crowd. The new Nikon D90 was in the limelight, although the successful D3, D300 and the recently introduced D700 also seemed extremely wanted and popular.


Samsung cameras at Photokina 2008

Dennis Hissink : 2008-09-30 00:01:00
Samsung HZ1 digital camera at Photokina 2008 : The 'sleeping giant' is Samsung's name in the photo industry. And sleeping doesn't seem too far off we discovered, after visiting the Samsung booth at Photokina 2008. As for floor space, Samsung had sufficient room to show many of its new products, and it is rather striking that Samsung has nothing, or almost nothing, to declare as for cameras. All of the products but one prototype, the Samsung HZ1, were introduced at the CES and PMA (January 2008). Samsung seems to omit profiling the company as an innovative and serious camera manufacturer at the world's largest and most important imaging event, apart from a few camera models introduced in July.
