PMA 2007 Final Report

PMA 2018 Report

Posted by: Ralf Jurrien

Although the major part of the new cameras has been introduced long before the PMA 2007 started, it is always a pleasure to attend the PMA. Besides visiting the booths, we centre on numerous conversations with new and existing contacts and at the same time it is a joy to annually meet our colleagues. The location of this year's PMA was Las Vegas and not Orlando, to the mere delight of most of us. It remains the ideal mixture: entertainment and photography. And Las Vegas is one of the most suitable places to offer such an event. According to the information I received we will be able to visit the PMA on this very same location for the next few years and Orlando is left out for a while.

12 Megapixel digital cameras
PMA 2007 has finished. What's left for us to do in the coming months is testing a large part of the cameras that have been introduced in the first quarter of 2007. In the mean time we have already received the first models and we will shortly publish some reviews. The thing we learned from this PMA is that the Megapixel race is not over yet. Although camera manufacturers like Canon tried to make us believe that 6 Megapixels suffice, are the same manufacturers happily carrying on increasing the amount of pixels and a 10 Megapixel camera is not a rare phenomenon nowadays. Sony even hold an early product with their 12 Megapixel camera and strangely enough almost no attention has been paid to this extravagance.

General Imaging digital cameras
Newcomer on the market is General Imaging and I did notice that the assortment of digital compact cameras appealed to the public. Even though the booth was of enormous size compared to the showcased product, it was a successful introduction looking at the amount of media attention they received. The question now is how General Imaging will develop and if or when we can expect their first products on the digital imaging market.

PMA Show Report
LetsGoDigital's special PMA web site is offering the entire review of the PMA 2007. Besides numerous camera introductions, compact and SLR, a lot of attention was given to software, printing solutions, lenses, accessories and flash memory cards. Digital Imaging has become a daily item, not much has changed for many people, other than the manner of taking pictures. For others digital imaging might become a new hobby and perhaps a future profession as a professional photographer. The rise of the digital SLR camera enriches the digital photography market a lot and in that respect I see many possibilities for the traditional photo manufacturer!

The PMA show, or Photo Marketing Association, continues its yearly tradition of maintaining a network of photo imaging as well as the experience and know-how of the industry. The PMA represents 20,000 members from over 100 countries, who are all active within the imaging industry. As a reflection of the changes in the market, the PMA organization has also changed and has become more diverse. Nowadays, the member group consists of representatives coming from photo retail, manufacturers, commercial photo labs, professional sports and news photography, in addition to small album print suppliers and photo processing centers. The PMA 2012 Trade show focuses on an industry which is heavily affected by the unstable situation of the global financial economy. However, whether the latter will also stand in the way of the innovation and product introductions, remains to be revealed by the PMA International Convention & Trade Show in Anaheim Convention Center (California, US).
