PMA 2018 Report
Lowepro, a product design company that builds protective gear for photography equipment and portable electronics, announces the launch of its newest toploading camera bag series. Toploader Pro AW is built for the pro who requires fast access, agility and flexibility while on assignment. The contoured, asymmetrical shape of Toploader Pro AW follows the lines of a pro digital SLR camera for a snug, protective fit. Complementing this lean profile is the side opening with easy-grip access; the camera sits sideways making it easy to grab, shoot and put back. Lowepro’s quick-release buckle allows the photographer to close the bag without zipping it, enabling fast access plus security while on the move.
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).
