In all, there were a total of 34 new cameras introduced today, true to the adage â€œwhen it rains, it pours.â€ This is of course a prelude to the upcoming PMA 08, the Photo Marketing Associationâ€™s trade expo kicking off on Thursday next week, January 31 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Canon unleashed 5 new cameras: the EOS Rebel XSi DSLR and 4 Powershots, A590 IS, A580, A470 and the SD1100 IS.

Sony had 7 new Cyber-shot introductions: DSC-H10, DSC-S780, DSC-S750, DSC-T300, DSC-W170, DSC-W150 and DSC-W130 while Pentax rolled out two new DSLRs, the K20D and K200D, plus 4 more Optios, the M50, S12, E50 and A40.
Of course, Samsung would not be left behind; it previewed the new GX-20, which is veritably the K20Dâ€™s twin brother.
