Latest on PMA 2008 Show: 2008 the Year of DSLR Cameras

pma2008While I’ve been gone, a lot of rumors started to spread around the Internet about the PMA Show. This year, the most important show of the year will take place between Jan. 31 – Feb. 2, 2008, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nev. You should expect bigger storage cards, bigger zoom on compact digital cameras, higher image quality, high frame rates (frames per second), larger LCD screens, more CMOS sensors. Also, dpreview states that “I’m pretty confident that 2008 will go down as the year of the digital SLR with perhaps up to 25 new DSLRs over the course of the year.” I bet you allready noticed that while walking on the street, there are more and more people with a DSLR hanging their neck than compacts in their pockets.
The official PMA2008 report also states:
“The digital SLR camera market is booming. Compared to last year the DSLR camera sales increased with impressive numbers and it seems the digital SLR camera has become a mass consumer product. New entry level D-SLR cameras with 6 Megapixels surprisingly were welcomed very well by the amateur photographer and it seems that within this segment of the digital camera market the resolution range of 6 – 10 Megapixel fulfils the need of the amateur photographer. Without lenses the digital SLR camera would not be complete and it is for that reason we see a huge number of digital SLR lens introductions appear this year.”
I believe this is a good think and a challenging one also. Photography is no longer an expensive hobby and more competitive photographers know on my door too. This also means that, from now on, it’s more important to concentrate on the photography and not on the camera you have, so keep an eye on photoaxe tutorials.
Here’s a list of the brand new camera’s of 2008 that will be presented at the PMA2008; and, before that, I’ll post the specifications on

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".
