I couldn't miss visiting my friend Werner Seitz at his booth. I am a happy VR Drive user and it is great to see this company moving from the great analogue Roundshot cameras to the new digital Roundshots, 470 million pixels in 3 seconds? Wow... Also a great image from Matthias Taugwalder was exibited there, one more reason to visit the booth!

It is nice to see Leica busy again. Last Photokina I always went to lunch near Leica booth because so empty it was that I always managed to get served fast. Not this time around, good luck Leica.

While others had license to shoot, I had license to fish, and here I really did it! I particularly enjoy in this perspective having captured the girl attention and when rotating the image you can see also the shooting crowd captured quite nicely. To my surprise, the speaker at this booth nicely asked what was it and I explained a bit about the fishing I was doing and everybody liked the idea.

After resisting for several days to the magnetic force fields coming from Hall 3 mainly because of the much hyped Canon 5D Mark II, I stopped resisting and went there!

Sony's Photokina booth was not alone outstanding because of presenting the new Alpha 900 DSLR alone. I loved the scenes in between the different sections, presenting lots of motives for creative imaging.

The hard-to-miss LOMO lounge in one of the hallways was the home of the Flickr presence at Photokina on saturday. Unfortunately I was just too late for the final presentation of the day, but at least that meant I could get one of the nice Flickr-themed chocolate muffins. For the record: I only took a blue one, only half the logo...
