At the Samsung booth, I found this miniature funfair. I guess it only makes sense, with cameras getting smaller and smaller, to also expect our subjects to get smaller ;-)
Great attention to detail though.

This pano is a classic example of a photographer taking a photo of a photographer taking a photo of a photographer not taking a photo.
There's a photographer taking portraits of willing bystanders at the Sony booth. You can get the photos printed with novelty borders, and the most popular theme seems to be the ubiquitous 'Wanted, dead or alive', hence the pose...

Kodak: architectural spaciousness

Amidst all the busy people and crowded booths, the Kodak booth struck me as a very pleasantly spacious area. I like the light and openness. Almost more of an architectural piece than an exhibition area.
Ofcourse, Kodak also has its more conventional exhibits, like the fashion show

Kodak is showing its latest models in - what else - a fashion show.
The models were showing off the full range of Eastman Kodak products, including garments made from slide film, tops from print paper, and consumer digital and single use cameras.

I shoot all my panoramas with a Fuji S2 Pro, and I am really happy with that camera. It's starting to show it's age though, so I have been eagerly awaiting a new Fuji camera.
The S5 Pro was previewed on Photokina. It looks suspiciously like a D200, but has Fuji's SR pro sensor technology in it for additional Dynamic Range. The resolution sounds a bit low though, at 2x 6 Mp. Apart from D200-like features such as WiFi connectivity, Fuji's Face Detection technology seems an interesting addition for checking image sharpness.

I went into the Canon booth with my Canon 5D and the Nikkor 10.5mm Fisheye lens attached. The minute they saw me they started to freak out, the guy on the screen jumped over me, another one had to put the glasses on, he couldn't believe that I had attached a Nikkor lens on my Canon body.

This a Pano shot at the Seitz Roundshot booth featuring me and Werner Seitz just to put some faces here, I am the guy in the left. Why don't I have my hand on the triger? The VR Drive does it all by itself ;-)

On the first dat I had to visit the Seitz Roundshot booth, I use their VR Drive Panorama Head and they features some picture of mine so I couldn't resut doing some panoramas there. The two pictures you see here are the ones they used, the top one is from Dolce Vita Shopping Center in Porto, Portugal, the other is a pano made on the Rossio Square in Lisbon.
