CES 2013 is around the corner, January 8th through 11th. I will be attending for the duration and will report mostly about the Digital Photography portion of the trade show.


 Hi Photographer friends,

This year's, the old "PMA" (Photo Marketing Association)  Photography  trade show is again part of the 2013 International CES, where the world manufacturers of Consumer Electronic show their products.

The PMA show and convention vanished after 2010, the year they decided to hold the trade show in Anaheim, California, instead of Las Vegas. After that fiasco, many of the top brands didn't participate in the annual even renamed CliQ.  Canon did not show up after that show, even though is was brought back to Las Vegas. Nikon had a smaller presentation, Pentax only had a private room to meet with guests. The PMA joined the CES trade show in 2012. It was  successful, but I did not have a chance to attend the 2012 CES.

This year is different and I got my registration in place back in August. I am qualified as "Press" and as such, I will be privy to more access than regular visitors.  I will use that opportunity to bring all the news regarding Pentax and all other brands to this blog. I will try to get some interview with representatives and post that on this blog. 

The difference with my reports and those of reviewers, will be that I don't necessarily look at the high technology of things. I look at the usability and the user's friendliness of photographic equipment. 

If you are attending, it would me my pleasure to meet and say Hi to fellow photographers. An email prior to the show would work. 

The trade show is from January 8 through January 11th, 2013. It's really just around the corner.

If you have specific questions you would like to ask to any of the camera manufacturer, let me know in advance and I will be sure to ask and report results on this blog,  

Thank you for reading,

Yvon Bourque
