Touch & Try

I went to the Camera & Photo Imaging Show at Pacifico in Yokohama today. By registering on their website, I got free entry too!

While I could show you pictures of cameras and lenses, I think it would be far more interesting to show a few pictures of the booth babes that made a company's camera look oh so desirable.

One camera on display was the 3D camera from Fujifilm. By wearing 3D glasses, the images on the TV screen looked pretty impressive. Seeing the pictures on paper still left quite a bit to be desired though. I'd like to see how this progresses in the future.I wasn't the only one with a camera, so it was pretty funny watching geeks like me getting their part of the action.What was most interesting to me, (other than the models), was the Sigma 50mm lens, and the forthcoming G2 cameras from Panasonic. I sold my GH1 a while back, so I think I sold it at the right time. The most noticeable difference was the touchscreen. Nice idea, and I like the new blue colour too.
It was a good (White) day to rival the Motor Show in the number of fine J girls, so I was happy. Later on, I treated the gf to some yummy Chinese at Xin-li (also known as "Red Tiger"), on the 6th floor of CIAL complex in Yokohama Station. First a feast for my eyes, and then a feast for my stomach. Perfect.
