Shockproof and waterproof cameras

PMA 2010 Report
Monday 9th, March 2009
Posted by: Mark Peters

Waterproof and shockproof digital cameras are likely to become the hit of 2009, or at least; if it is up to the manufacturer. Various famous brands such as Olympus, Canon and Fujifilm have all introduced their own version of this type of camera, however, corporations such as General Imaging are also beginning to see the light. Although GE still seems unable to really get things started with a solidly built assortment of digital cameras, General Imaging did introduce the GE G3WP at the PMA 2009 show. The GE G3WP is a waterproof digital camera that can be used to a maximum depth of 10 feet. It features 12.2 Megapixels and an 4x optical zoom, all of which should add to the freedom of the active outdoor photographer, in order to capture his or her favorite moment.

Posted by: Mark Peters Saturday 7th, March 2009

In one of the smaller booths, EWA Marine 'pops up'. EWA Marine is a brand that provides (under)water sports solutions for the wide array of digital electronic equipment that is available nowadays. And what's better than capturing the fabulous underwater wildlife with a digital camera? EWA Marine provides many affordable solutions for any digital compact or DSLR camera you can think of, allowing you to explore the underwater world. New during PMA is an underwater housing for those who love snorkeling. Not every person is able to go for scuba diving or has the possibility to do it. Snorkeling is an entirely different thing.

Shark attack at Photography Expedition

Posted by: Dennis Hissink Saturday 15th, December 2007

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.

Nikon D40x underwater case

Posted by: Ilse Jurrien Sunday 11th, March 2007

I just ran into Nadav from Fantasea Line who gave me an exclusive look at brand new underwater housing for the Nikon D40x digital SLR camera that was introduced just a week ago. The Fantasea Nikon D40x underwater case will be introduced next month, but thanks to Nadav you are able to get a first look of this brand new product. As soon as the product is officially introduced we will give you an update about the specifications as to weight, dimensions, etc. I believe the Nikon D40x will be very popular, also for the enthusiastic underwater photographer with the availability of the new Fantasea underwater housing, offering 10 Megapixel, 3 fps, low sensitivity of 100 ISO and longer-lasting battery.

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.
