The 2010 Consumer Electronics Show takes place January, 7-10 in Las Vegas. There will be a whole lot of photo tech on display at CES this year. Some of the manufactures present include Canon, Casio, Fuji, Lowepro, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Samsung and Sony.
This page will be our ground zero for CES news through the event.
Traditionally, CES has been the time for camera manufacturers to release a barrage of point and shoot cameras. With the market moving lots of low-end DSLRs at a much broader consumer base, it will interesting to see whether this affects the product announcements at CES which offers much more exposure to general consumers than say a PMA show (directed specifically toward pro and enthusiast photographers).
In this evolving page, we’ll highlight some of the big movers and shakers in the photography world as more details come in as related to their presence at CES 2010.
If you’re on Twitter, consider following Photography Bay as I may have some instant updates from the show floor and some mobile pics of new gear coming out as Tweets quicker than what you’ll find here or on the front page.
New Canon Point & Shoot Cameras: A3100 IS, A3000 IS, A495 & A490
My guess is more of those high frame-rate point and shoot cameras, like the FC100. Most likely they’ll be smaller and have better image quality.
More EXR-equipped cameras maybe. These are good little cameras that seem to be doing well for Fuji. That’s for a good reason though, everything that I’ve seen from them really seems to produce solid images.
New Kodak Point & Shoot Cameras: Kodak Slice, Kodak M580, Kodak Playsport
More point and shoot cameras. Maybe we’ll see the camera that sends emails? Of course, we’d all love to see the Nikon D800 or D700s. Don’t hold your breath though. I wouldn’t expect this to be a CES ticket – perhaps a pre-PMA 2010 announcement?
Expect some point an shoot cameras like everyone else. What I’m really curious about though is whether they’ll release the much-rumored and poorly kept secret 645D medium format camera.
Samsung NX10 Announced: It’s a 14.6MP camera with a DSLR-sized sensor in APS-C format. The NX10 has no mirror like DSLRs, so it’s a bit more compact. Other features include HD video capture, an AMOLED screen and a built-in electronic viewfinder.
Sony A450: 14.2MP sibling to the A550 and A500. Essentially, the A450 is an A550 without the tilting LCD and Live View.
