2010 PMA show is over (see detailed report here). A lot of point and shoot cameras were released and almost nothing in the DSLR area. The stars of show, in my opinion, were the "three S":
- Sony: EVIL and a700 replacement prototypes.
- Sigma: 5 new lenses, 2 DP cameras, the SD15 DSLR (after almost 2 years delay) plus maybe an EVIL camera in the future.
- Samsung with its new TL500 (f/1.8 lens).
What's next? Panasonic and Pentax:
Panasonic is expected to announce two new Lumix cameras around March 7-10, 2010:
No specs are available at that point.
Pentax is expected to announce their medium format 645D camera during the CP+ Camera and Imaging Show in Japan (March 11th-14th, 2010). This is how the teaser looks today (it is set to gradually show more details of the camera):
I did not include Olympus with their latest Fourt Thirds countdown on that list, because they removed their website (http://www.evolve.com.my/). The countdown was set to expire on February 28th, 2010 and is probably about a new website rather than a new product.
