Frank I really like those. The tone and texture are great. You'll convert me to film yet.

Thanks.

Naaa. If you're into digital now, which you are, don't convert. Like, what for? That lens I'm using can probably work with the new digital M8.

I should have more pics up soon from Harrison. I just got back today. I shot those new sand sculptures for that internation competition---some colour, some B&Ws.

Yeah, I stuck it in with the plastic flowers on my dining table. I'm going to scan and post more samples with this lens tonight. I just got 4 rolls back from the lab guy---shot a couple of days ago.

Everything's kind of in preliminary stages for the show.
I think we've already seen most of the major announcements though.
Today, Fuji announced development of the S5, and Olympus is showing off an E1 successor, thing looks huge. I don't know what else to expect, some people are saying Canon has something hidden up their sleeve, but it's unknown if they'll reveal anything else other than the XTi and 30D at this show. As for Nikon, the D80 appears to be their stock car for this year's race, and Sony should have something else other than their a100 but nobody knows for sure if it'll be revealed at this event.
It seems like the new strategy among them all is to only show off the little things at gatherings, and then let everybody have their own time in the spotlight with the major announcements at their own events.

Photokina update!
Quote:
the post Photokina camera swap meet turned out to be quite a surprise to me. damn it was good.

imagine 200 plus tables packed full of rare collectible cameras, and attentendance so high that you could not walk down the aisle without bumping into someone every step of the way.

prices were high by American standards, but the real thing was that the goods were there, including lots and lots and lots of M Leicas, a motorized M2 with motor, black M2s, M3s, M4s, three olive M4´s, military wartime Leicas, the Erneman with 100/2, stereo Contax, two original Exakta, two Mecaflex, numerous Casca, black Nikon S3 half frame, Rollei 3000 EC half frame, and on and on. it was nice.

the funny thing was digital dealers were not even noticed.

seems the larger European camera shows are the place to buy collectible film cameras.

feel free to post this on other forums
