As for the Samsung NX camera; it may have been introduced as a concept, but many things still remain unclear. There are no announcements whatsoever from Samsung about specifications that are not already in the press release, but as we look at the concept cameras showcased behind glass, we see features claimed like video capture. This makes us assume that the Samsung NX camera will be able to record videos. The DX format sensor that is going to be used in the future Samsung NX camera, is larger that that of the compact camera, which causes us to expect more from the image quality of this digital camera.

The amount of resolution Samsung is going to apply on this new concept is unknown, however; if we consider the camera will not appear before the end of 2009 or beginning 2010, 14 Megapixels seems quite likely. The camera concept is still not too small, slightly more narrow, but it all depends on the type of lens Samsung plans to use. A similar Olympus E-420 or Pentax K2000 is not much bigger than the Samsung NX concept.

Samsung NX - Micro Four Thirds system
With the arrival of the Micro Four Thirds system, the solution seemed to be within reach. Panasonic turned out to be able to deliver the first Micro FourThirds system based camera; the Panasonic LUMIX G1. A camera that was warmly received proved to be an instant hit. Still the size of the camera body wasn't what you'd expect from a 'Micro' type.

There are still opportunities for those brands that can come up with something smaller. All hopes were set on Olympus and what they had in the pipeline. During the last Photokina 2008 show, Olympus demonstrated a compact camera design concept. With this model, Samsung tries to steer hope in a certain direction. However, with the introduction of the Samsung NX camera, the game is not yet over.

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).
