    "See it"? Did you see the pics posted?

    http://www.fotografovani.cz/images3/PMA08_05.jpg

    The question is will they actually bring it to production and internet rumors (take them for what they're worth) are that it is destined for the Japanese market only if they do. Not sure I would get one myself as it's not quite my cup of tea but, it is a very good sign.

    Incredibly cool! I wouldn't have ever guessed this would happen, but Fuji has made some great MF rangefinders over the years. A friend had the 645 folder and it was really neat. Almost bought one myself a few years ago.

    Interesting stuff!
    I didn't know.
    Did you see these at PMA?
    I am not sure I'd be interested in anyone them though.
    Thanks for letting me know.

    I can't believe somebody would say this these days:

    http://photo.net/bboard/q-and-a-fetch-msg?msg_id=00OF7F

    I feel it may be aimed at judging that interest in the potentially very huge Asian market, where at present digital equipment acquisition for quality reproduction may be out of the reach of many serious photographers (it is in the West, for many of us!)

    South East Asia actually is pretty much the testing ground of many electronic gadgets.

    Anyhow, kind of wonder if that has to do with the came-back of Fuji velvia 50. Probably not related

    Hey Bri, here it is! In silver and black. The fuji reps had almost nothing to say about it. Apparently these handbuilt protoypes were there to gauge public interest, and according to their film rep interest was very high.

    Hi Javier,

    Here's a pic of the Sigma DP1 with the optional optical viewfinder. I got to play with it a bit at the Sigma booth. 14mp and a DSLR-sized sensor are great, the most obvious compromise is the fixed 16mm lens...

    Re: 2008 PMA Tradeshow!

    Wow! This is the most exciting PMA in a while. A new Fuji 120 RF, new Holgas, and a compact digital for serious photographers. I've been wondering why nobody was putting biggers sensors in smaller digicams. I'll have to look into this one.

    Rick, if you get a chance to talk to the Fuji people about that RF, tell them there is a lot of interest over here at PR. :thumbsup:

    Thanks for all the info and pictures!

    lol, perfect match for the Sigma lens, Greg. I'm sure it will be very stable in high wind. also, looks like it would pan very well too.

    Now that PMA is over, what do you see as the next big thing for photography? Last year is seemed everyone was talking about face recongnition technology in cameas.

    What is all the buzz about this year?

    Re: 2008 PMA Tradeshow!

    Face recognition has evolved into smile recognition. Several manufacturers have in their cameras now technology that will identify a smile in your subject and take the picture as the person smiles - without the photographer having to push the shutter.

    Film did see a little bit of a resurgence this year, with every major film manufacturer I talked to (Kodak, Fuji, Agfa, and Ilford) pledging their alegiance to film and their dedication to sticking with it until there is no longer a market for it. Each of these manufacturers is developing new film products or revamping old ones as testament to this dedication.

    The big story this year I believe is finer resolution at higher iso. The images that I saw printed to poster size and shot with incredibly high iso (1600 and above) were breathtaking. One comment I heard this year was "1600 is the new 200" if that is any indicator. The Nikon D3 at iso 6400 is a great example of this trend. Higher and higher megapixels will probably always be a trend, but now I am seeing finer and finer iso becoming a stronger movement.

    Larger sensors has to be another strong theme. Putting bigger sensors in smaller cameras is another theme within that. Basically, "pro" small cameras has been a movement over the last 2 years that I have seen.

    Curious about all the other attendee's opinions.

    The 4 new Holga models are:

    120 pinhole:



    35mm pinhole:



    A standard 35mm Holga and a 35mm camera called "Holga 135 BC" with the BC standing for "black corners" - the corners inside the camera in front of the film plane are rounded to produce the vinette that Holgas are famous for!

    Re: 2008 PMA Tradeshow!

    The photo I got of the family of Holgas has vanished from the gallery.
    Or I did something horribly wrong while uploading.
    So here they are again - a blur of Holgas, if that's the right collective noun...
