DCIM 2009

Wanted to post this earlier but time did not permit. Anyways, when we went on a Saturday, traffic to mid-valley mall was clear despite the heavy rain and there was ample parking. Touted as the Malaysia equivalent of Photokina or Photo Marketing Association (PMA) show, DCIM or Digital Camera, Imaging and Media show was a let-down. Some people wondered why Sony was absent. I don’t consider Sony a digital camera player still (sorry, my bias!) despite them buying Konica-Minolta. Most of the display consisted of everyday products like memory cards, light boxes, printers and all that. One part of the area just had prints from magazine contests and a few other local photographers. They didn’t even have prints from Malaysia’s most awarded photographer! Anyways, even the Canon or Nikon booth was just a glorified display area with cameras for everyone to play with. No 500D or 270EX flash, nothing new like radio poppers or the new pocket wizard. The only thing there was a lot of were underweight, leggy women. Yup, the whole show seemed to revolve around the models. There was a model search and every day, a model parade will be held and more. People seemed to be coming for that, all equipped with ladders and all. All very ho-hum for me. I think they should have called in the Digital Camera and Model show.

Oh, well, just have three photos to share. So disappointing generally that my Mark II stayed in my Think Tank most of the time.

PMA In two weeks…

PMA, the Photo Marketing Association Expo. Las Vegas. January 31st to February 2nd, 2008. What’s to expect? Well, the Nikon-Canon DSLR battle just got wilder with Sony jumping into the fray. All in all, it’s all good for us users and expect the tussle to result in better cams and lower prices. Who’s complaining? So far, just two over weeks into 2008 and we already have:
= Sony A200 DSLR (preorder)
= Casio EX F1 60fps 12X w/RAW
= Nine Kodak cameras + C813
= Four Samsung NV-series and some more
= Four new Casio Exilim compacts
= The Megapixel Wars continue, unfortunately. Everyone knows I prefer image quality over two extra MegaPixels…

Will need to go back and process the 2.5Gb of photos… will be uploaded to Multiply then. Stay tuned!

It’s almost 9 and I’m hungry!

Still have some funky wiring to figure out why it doesn’t work!
