Getting Serious about the CES Event


The 2012 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) begins on Tuesday, Jan. 10 in Las Vegas. It is one of the biggest technology events of the year, now being bolstered by photography manufacturers who have targeted this trade show as "essential."

The Photo Marketing Association (PMA) has moved its annual party over to CES, strengthening the photography ties with PMA@CES. You've probably already seen pre-show announcements from FujiFilm, and the big one from Nikon, the Nikon D4 Multi-media DSLR. The D4 is a perfect example of how CES has changed. There's nothing "consumer" about this flagship DSLR. It's pro all the way.

As a result, some of us who passed on CES in years past are now on our way to Las Vegas next week to cover the chaos. I'll be there writing and shooting for Lowepro. I'll also be posting many times a day on the Lowepro Twitter feed. You might want to follow that conversation, because I have some interesting things I'm going to do there.

If you're going to be in Las Vegas, definitely tune in, because I'll be giving away goodies on the show floor. If you're not attending, stay tuned. There's going to be lots to report. You might also want to check out the Panasonic Live page. They will be broadcasting from the PMA@CES floor for two days. It looks like a great resource.

After the event is over, I'll post a wrap-up via my weekly TDS Podcast. You'll get all the highlights in a 30-minute show.

OK, time to pack my bags and head to Vegas.
