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.

The Leaf booth is just a couple of meters away from ours, and they're putting up quite a show; they have a hypnotist who's doing hourly shows (the link with Leaf products eludes me), but they also have an almost continuous photoshoot to show off their studio equipment.

All the way over at hall 6, which is a bit short of audience, there's a booth where you can get a beauty makeover and a good vanity shot taken. I guess this is where spouses that were dragged along to Photokina by their enthousiast other half end up...

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...

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.

Almost every booth, be it for a camera manufacturer or postprocessing equipment, needs a model shoot to demo their products. And ofcourse it's not just the contracted pro photographers taking pictures...
I caught this model working an impossible pose for her photographer, and the hungry onlookers.
