Photokina attendance strong, Nikonians Team on the prowl
Our Nikonians Team at Photokina 2010 has been taking a few minutes every now and then to go have a look at the massive collection of exhibitors….
----and of course a "must visit" is the Nikon Booth (shown here during a rare quite moment before the crowd hits).
We hear there's a bit of disappointment from some booth visitors who were truly expecting to see the unveiling of a brand new top-of the-line FX format Nikon DSLR. Most visitors to the booth were occupied taking in some of the lectures and (of course) handling the gear, which included Nikon's newly unveiled Nikon D7000, two new lenses geared for the pro-market and the SB-700 Speedlight.
Nikonians Team volunteer Thomas Berg (twberg) borrowed a Nikon D3 from Albert Esschendal (alberte) and an AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8G ED VR II lens to focus on a pair of models posing for photographers at the show. Thomas has good taste -- that lens is retailing in the ball-park of $9,000 USD.
The Photokina 2010 Press Room is estimating 50,000 visitors in the first few days arriving at a rate of seven percent higher than the figure recorded at the equivalent point in 2008.
The trade fair is open daily from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
The Nikonians booth is in Hall 5.1 -- which carries the theme "Meet the Communities at photokina."
Social networks, photography festivals, associations, and publishing houses are offering photokina visitors a unique platform with diverse highlights on and beside the big stage.
