I use a 15 year old tripod manufactured by Slik. I though I'ld drop by and proudly show them my slightly worn, slightly modified tripod. Oddly, they found my shaved Tokina 10-17mm much more interesting, and insisted on taking a picture of it.

My first DSLR was a Fuji S2 Pro, which I used at Photokina 2006. Last year, I bought a Fuji S5 Pro, that I am still happy with. My new Nikon D700 lets me use the Tokina 10-17mm which is that much sharper than the Sigma 8mm, but I still love the dynamic range the S5 Pro is giving me.

Fuji had a nice overview of the SuperCCD evolution at their booth, and presented the SuperCCD EXR chip design, but unfortunately there was no news about any new DSLRs from Fuji at Photokina. Many think this means the end of the DSLR legacy. Sigh...

At many of the booths where there are models to be photographed, men with long zoom lenses gather around trying to get as close as possible for a good closeup shot of the 'wares'. Take a couple of tens of photos and move on. Wham bam, thank you mam.

This gentleman took a different approach. He actually walked up to the lady in question to show her the image he just shot. Aw... Such gallantry... Or was it because he had his wife with him?
