PMA 2018 Report
Saturday 15th, December 2007
Posted by: Dennis Hissink

The M/V Shearwater departs from West Palm Beach (Florida) towards the Bahamas where we go on our shark expedition. During this expedition we are searching for large sharks such as the tiger shark, the bull shark and the great hammerhead shark. The Nikon D80 in combination with the Nikon 12-24mm lens will capture a very special experience. I am nervous about what is to come. I do not know if they are healthy nerves or if they are nerves that make me ask myself if I should have booked this trip... After a very rough passage from West Palm Beach to the Bahamas I prepare my camera in the morning.

Not that long ago, a large number of manufacturers presented their digital camera line on the PMA show floor. It had already been predicted that there would no longer be room for quite so many, and thus only for a handful of manufacturers. This is partially right, however, the offer of compact and DSLR cameras does not seem to have decreased. The compact camera has matured and true innovations are over, while the digital SLR is conquering more and more market share. The Micro Four Thirds system camera manufactured by Panasonic and Olympus, is the new kid on the block. Whether more manufacturers will adopt the Micro Four Thirds system during the PMA International Convention and Trade Show, or whether they will come with their own 'Micro' system like Samsung, remains to be seen.
