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.

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.

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.
