Nokia had this huge crane like the ones used by TV Networks to broadcast large shows but on top of it only this small Nokia N series phone capturing live video to several TV screens at the Nokia booth. To see this phone just look strait up to the ceiling. Also fascinating was this Steady Cam Men, he was all over Nokia booth capturing live video and we did have a tête a tête here, look closely, he is not steading any regular cam, he is steading a Nokia N series phone!

Nokia had a great booth to show their gear. I am convinced now that in the near future people will be taking more pictures with cell phones than with cameras. It's so easy and everyone has one in their pocket. Nokia went a bit further to make it easy for everyone to shoot pictures or make videos and then upload it all to the Internet on the spot. Forget about newspapers, everyone will be making the news from now on, live from around the globe to the Internet.

Have you ever wondered what it is like to look over the shoulder of a photographer? Each company had their own photo shooting at its booth. So had Epson.

While we were leaving the exhibition halls of Koelnmesse, the sun set and created this scenic view. Right in front of the sun you can see the two towers of Cologne's famous Dom.

Nikon had a big booth with sample cameras mounted on poles. After I finished the shots this panorama, a visitor mistook my tripod and camera for one of that Nikon demo cameras. So I had to convince him that it's my gear...
