Without accessories, a professional photographer cannot do his job. Also, the consumer using his camera for private use requires accessories. The PMA 2011 show offers a wide range of all kinds of accessories, allowing the best experience for digital photography. A DSLR or compact camera without a memory card is useless, and the offer of flash memory cards also meets the needs of consumers. Fast and high capacity cards for the pro, and cheap memory cards for the snapshots of the consumer, are also among the standard accessories for photography. GPS and navigation appear to be adopted by the photo industry more and more. The integration of GPS into cameras does not happen all that fast, yet it seems that 2011 will signal a breakthrough. The PMA International Convention and Trade Show also provide an overview of new bags, tripods, lenses, flash units, etc.
