Photokina 2016: The Day Before The Opening

By Makoto Shibata (Photo Journalist/Japan)

Our correspondent went to press conferences at Photokina

Photokina, one of the world’s biggest trade fair in camera and image industry, is taking place in Germany from September 20th to 25th. Your correspondent is there and on September 19th went to six press conferences of participating companies. Although Koelnmesse, which is hosting the fair, was still preparing for it, there was one element of surprise: they would announce more new products than I expected. I’m feeling uplifted.
