The Norwegian supplier of Samsung digital cameras, among other things, has some great news to share besides the various new compact camera models; a new digital Samsung DSLR. The new Samsung GX-20 has not officially been launched yet, but according to the information of Aronsen, importer and supplier of Samsung and other brands, the Samsung GX20 is expected to occupy the shop-shelves in March. The Las Vegas Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2008 has only just ended but we are already preparing for the PMA show coming up also in Las Vegas. The official Samsung GX-20 Digital SLR introduction is likely to take place just before the start of this show. For now we have to settle for some scarce data.

Samsung GX-20 DSLR - Live View
Unofficial information reveals that the new Samsung GX20 digital SLR camera offers Live View; a function that is becoming more and more popular these days. DSLR manufacturers seem to have quickly adopted Live View from out of the blue and it looks like it is a must for every manufacturer to equip a new DSLR with Live View. Live View mode is offered through the 2.7 inch monitor on the back of the camera. We'll have to be patient a little while longer before being able to get all the details of Live View on the Samsung GX20 but undoubtedly more information will be given soon.

Samsung GX-20 DSLR - Expectations and Order
The introduction of the Samsung GX-20 is not completely unexpected; it is more or less obvious Samsung would come out with a new DSLR. Still, we keep hearing rumours about Samsung being a 'sleeping giant' and once awake could change the order in the DSLR market completely. So far nothing has happened to prove that but with the little information about the new Samsung GX-20 we received today, Samsung are taking their chance to connect to the dominating DSLR brands on today's DSLR market.

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).
