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.

Sony had the 24 megapixel full frame Alpha 900 on display. It looks like quite a camera, and it attracted quite a crowd.

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.

Sigma had a huge booth, though most of it was a closed-off business lounge. They did give photographers the opportunity to try out most of their lenses. I managed to 'steal' a pen here...

The Sony booth had a model of the location for their latest commercial ad with bubbles, also called the Foam City made in Miami.

After talking to a lot of different people, I managed to get permission to drive my LEGO Panobot into Sony's model city block, which is a copy of their latest TV ad - complete with bubble blowers!

There was a bit of trouble navigating around the cars, but it worked out OK in the end, without the camera getting too sticky.
