Photokina 2012 focuses on HDSLR Video.
Every two years there is one focal point in the Photo industry: Photokina, the world’s leading imaging fair. Photokina covers the entire spectrum of imaging, from image capture to image processing and storage to image output. This is where new trends and major innovations are presented to the world, and where the spotlight is on groundbreaking technological developments including mobile imaging, connectivity, and moving images. The show always delivers an impressive program of workshops, symposiums, photography exhibitions and many special events at the exhibition centre and at sites all over Cologne.
As you might know every Photokina show focuses on one single topic. Because filming withHDSLR systems is increasingly becoming a necessity for professionals, this year’s topic is HDSLR Video.
The show has created a “Shoot Movie Park” in Hall 4.1, offering a unique area where suppliers have an optimal location to present themselves to the attendees. The Movie Park will be supplemented by a series of lectures, workshops and exhibitions. Canon will present Richard Walch, sailor, snowboarder and photographer. Zeiss will have Sebastian Wiegärtner, one of the first users in the German-speaking region to understand and make use of the capabilities of the new HDSLR systems. We are very excited to be representing X-Rite, and show our most recent Color Management Video Tutorials (Video 1, Video 2 and Video 3).
Representatives of ADF — Arbeitskreis Digitale Fotografie (digital photography working group) will also be sharing their expertise as they answer visitors’ questions about digital photography and film. More information about the “Shoot Movie” program can be found here.
