PhotoPlus Expo Meeting List

Who do we plan on talking to at PhotoPlus Expo in NYC?
well the short list is: Nikon, Pentax, Sigma, Kodak, Fuji, NEC, Manfroto, Mitsubishi, Tiffen, Lensbaby, CRU, Epson, Canon, ThinkTankPhoto, Lexar and many more.
Got a question for them, or a request? Post it in the comment section and we'll see what we can do.

Olympus in Trouble?

Its hard to say exactly what they did, but they threw up red flags big time over the past few days as many organisations are reporting Financial scandal, government issues, even one talking about takeovers of the company. This on the heels of news than many of its other non photography related adventures are not doing so hot and that the company's photo division was close behind in loosing profit's.
Its sad to report honestly as this could be spelling bad news for the company, hope all pans out and we don't loose another photographic manufacture.
