The Lomo crowd has this lounge on hall 5.1 trying to guess the future. Unfortunately it looks like the digital / fake / manipulation / clean / no sex / crowd went south...

The Solution Center for Computer-Generated Imaging presents the latest in image design technology and offers professional users an introduction to this technology's changing workflow models.

To attract a bigger crowd, the booth included a (non-CGI) car in a light-stage sort-of sphere. It was good to see that my dome was not the only dome that was a bit wonky ;-)

These two visitors of the IVRPA were the last two to experience the dome theater at the booth. After they left, the dome was turned off, and later dismantled. It was not easy to turn off the projection, after all the energy I had put into getting the dome up and running (twice!).

The panorama shown is 'A Paradise Called Caramoan' by Rommel Bundalian

GE Cameras had this big, almost empty booth with a racing car in the center. Unfortunately the great cylinder banner on the ceiling had no images! I guess they didn't hear about IVRPA members doing gigapixel images. Maybe for the next time...

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.

A small number of large format anaglyph stereographic prints were on display as part of the Visual Gallery. There's no two ways round this; people look weird with those glasses on...

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...
