CES 2013 Recap Video

CES 2013 was certainly too big for one person to cover everything. However, there are a ton of awesome things that a single person can see in a few short days.

I still have a few posts of product hands-on and new gear first looks to publish over the next few weeks. I was going through some of my video clips this weekend and decided to put together the recap video you see above. Every time I go to one of these shows, I always wish I had shot more footage.

What you see in this little 2+ minute video is only a fraction of all the gadgetry that’s at CES but, hopefully, you’ll get a little glimpse of what some of the photo and video gear presence was like at CES 2013. As always, Canon, Nikon and Sony had big and busy booths that were packed with reps and onlookers everyday of the show.

There are some other cool things that aren’t necessarily photo-related in there (e.g., AR.Drones, the Rocksmith video game that lets you play a real guitar on your Xbox or PS3, Sony’s waterproof Xperia Z phone, etc.), but I found myself ‘wowed’ by them.

If you’ve got any questions about something you see in the video, feel free to ask and I’ll do my best to dish out all the info I’ve got. Photography Bay’s CES 2013 coverage thus far can be found here.

PMA 2011 Gets Pushed to 3rd Quarter, Back to Vegas

There’s no doubt that PMA 2010 was a bit of a disappointment, particularly with the Anaheim venue, Canon’s absence, and some overshadowing by CES.  Something had to give.  And, well, it did.

According to PMA, industry buying cycles and technology developments have driven the show to a September date instead of residing in the post-holiday and post-CES season. As a result, PMA 2011 will take place from September 8-10, 2011.  And, better still, it’s back at the Las Vegas Convention Center. I’ll be there with bells on.

It will be interesting to see the impact on other photo trade shows around the same time of year, such as PDN Photo Plus on the East Coast.  No word though on what happens in 2012, which would put a September PMA dangerously close to Photokina.

The full press announcement is below. [Read more...]
