Read the first part of the list

Here continues the list of the Booth Tours:

JOBO PMA 2008 Booth Tour
German manufacturer JOBO are featuring the new Energy PREMIO Battery range at PMA, developed specifically for use with digital SLRs. Also new are a range of 3 digital photo frames (the ubiquitous product of PMA 2008), plus the return of the photoGPS device, which first surfaced at PMA last year.
Crumpler PMA 2008 Booth Tour
As usual, the Crumpler booth is by the most imaginative of the show – its worth a visit all on its own! Crumpler have a couple of new products at PMA. The stylish and practical Cork & Fork is a padded photo backpack designed to slot inside Crumplers brand new carry-on roller luggage piece, The Period Charmer. Very neat. The Industry Disgrace is a camera neck strap designed for professional photographers carrying heavy camera equipment.
LowePro PMA 2008 Booth Tour
LowePro have a couple of cool new products on their PMA stand. The Flipside bags allow you to remove your camera without having to take the bag off, with no accessible zips when its on your back for added secutiry. The FastPack series lets you access your kit from the side while the bag is on your back. Thanks to product manager Tracy Daly for the demo and modelling!
Memory Cards PMA 2008 Booth Tour
A number of memory card companies have announced new products here at PMA, with SanDisk and PNY both introducing 32Gb SDHC cards. Ive rounded-up the standout products in one gallery.
GE PMA 2008 Booth Tour
GE are showcasing their 2nd generation of impressively-specced compact cameras at PMA. With no less than 8 new models to choose from, the flagship is the E1050, with 3 inch touchscreen LCD, HDMI connectivity and built-in GPS.
Tamron PMA 2008 Booth Tour
Tamron are showing their new lens line-up for 2008 behind glass, including the 70-200 f/2.8, 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 and a couple of lenses featuring a built-in motor for Nikon DSLRs.
Panasonic PMA 2008 Booth Tour>
Panasonic are demoing the prototype of a wireless camera, which was first shown at the CES show at the start of January. This version didnt look any different, still being based on a modified DMC-TZ3, and Panasonic don’t have any further details on when we might see a final product.
Kodak PMA 2008 Booth Tour
As usual Kodak have a huge booth at PMA, but once again very little of interest unless youre in the photo-finishing business (which to be fair, a lot of visitors to the show are). The brand new Kodak Easyshare Z1012 IS ultra-zoom compact plus 3 more compacts that were first announced at CES were pretty much it for Kodak this year.
Casio PMA 2008 Booth Tour
Casios PMA booth is centered around the incredible EX-F1, which can take 60 frames in 1 second at the full 6 megapixel resolution – you really have to try it out to believe it. Also featured are the pre-requisite incremental compact camera updates in a range of glaringly bright colours, inlcuding the Casio EX-S10, the worlds smallest and thinnest 10 megapixel digital camera.

I started photography as a hobby in 2005, during college. My passion slowly became a more important part of my life since 2008. Because of using a combination of my photographic knowledge, with those of internet marketing, I like to call myself a "photomarketer".
