Hard to believe we are at Day5 of Photokina. We're missing home very much now after being on a European diet for more than a week and running out of instant noodles and 3-in-1 Kopi packs

Day 4 Friday is Clubsnap's last day at Photokina and we are exhausted with all the walking but we are so excited with all the great conversations we've had and the many interesting people we've met.

The overall grapevine and official talk topics has been connectivity, social media, lifestyle, convenience , selfies , delivery systems, continual paradigm shifts, who-uploads-fastest-wins ......

We've consciously not covered the largest brands but focused coverage on niche smaller players instead.... except today where we'll share happenings at the huge Canon area and then also other candid images from the show's humanist side and the sidelines

We have had NO journalistic backgrounds nor trained in documentary work and alot of work has been done on the fly . Hopefully you've enjoyed the news reporting and images from Clubsnap.

Gariz from Korea has improved its half cases .....now you're able to remove your camera's battery WITHOUT the need to unscrew the half case


The Gariz Zoom Bag is just sexy in smooth Korean leather



Another Korean manufacturer, Varavon, showcasing really well made sealed bearing pulley sliding rigs and sliders (0.8m to 3m long) . They also have a curved slider which they did not bring as it was just off the drawing boards.... google them

Plenty of free printing services at Canon on their printers ..... and we're talking 4R or 5R prints ..... they're printing from poster A2 through 1.5m long images as long as you have your image files with you...... and without any charge



Underwater Housings
