So Long, CES 2007; Hello, PMA 2007

CES 2007 Sky

The 2007 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas has wrapped up, having hosted 2,700 companies and 140,000 attendees from all over the world on its sprawling exhibit area the size of 35 football fields.

As far as photography is concerned, only one professional UV camera and sixteen new point-and-shoot models from Samsung, Fuji, Kodak, Casio, and Pentax were introduced.

The digital SLRs of Canon, Nikon, Sony and Sigma or any cameras from HP, Panasonic and Leica were no-shows. Only two new Epson printers made it to the show.

But the other forms of consumer electronics showed up in full force. HDTVs, LCDs, optical media players, storage devices, camcorders, cellphones and smartphones, computers, even high-tech cars showed up.

We look forward to another trade show two months from now: PMA 2007 of the Photo Marketing Association on March 8-11 also in Vegas.
