From Amsterdam to Paris is just a couple of hours away, but the new Lumix line-up I was introduced to during the Panasonic Global Press conference in Paris, was another milestone for the Panasonic camera division. An impressive number of ten digital camera's were unveiled and one of them, the Panasonic TZ3, I took with me to Versailles to test it in the field. I have to remind you that the images of the Panasonic Lumix TZ3 are still a pre-production level, not final level! The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 is a wonderful little camera with a great optical zoom lens; 28 - 280mm. Finally a manufacturer who listened to its customers who were demanding a wide angle lens, applaud!

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).
