One of my photos @ photokina 2012 ...

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 19, 2012, 3:44 PM
Nice surprise ! One of my photos was selected from a bunch of submissions to be displayed at the
saal-digital booth at photokina 2012 in cologne-- .…
I also received a voucher for free entrance to the trade fair. I really felt happy about that.
Saal Digital is a german photo-finishing company that i use from time to time to
develop prints. I can recommend it , very good quality !

You can see my photo in hall 4.1 / C020 D011

zoom here    ---  deviation here

Saal-Digital booth

I visited photokina on tuesday , opening day.
Just one day was far to less time to see everything
so i had focus on the essentials (my interests)


Some photokina impressions :

a walkable Zeiss lens

good question ... ;)

Whitewall ... another  photo-finishing company that i like

huge printer

docma ,  very good german magazine about image editing , photoshop ...etc. Doc Baumann !

magazine about high quality paper

who has the biggest ... ;)

finally ... the Leica hall !  :heart:

the Leica Monochrome

new versus old ... the Monochrom on the left , my analog M6 on the right

tech talk ... the new Leica M , follow-up model of the M9. Not called M10 ... just "M " !

the new "M" one the left with a Summilux R-Lense 1:1,4/80  (with the new adapter the M recognizes R-Lenses automatically now)

Leica X2

Platon exhibition @ Leica hall.  There are several exhibitions at the Leica hall
Rankin, Jacob aue Sobol,Gursky,Araki,Nick Ut,Dominic Nahr,Barbara Klemm ... just to name a few

Elliot Erwitt ... one of my favorite photographers

well known shot of Erwitt , love it ...

One the left : David Burnett  :    photojournalist
He graduated from Colorado College in 1968 and began working as a freelance photographer for Time and Life,
first in the United States and later in Vietnam.
He has won dozens of top awards for his work, including the 1973 Robert Capa Gold Medal (with Raymond Depardon
and Chas Gerretsen) from the Overseas Press Club for work in Chile,[3] Magazine Photographer of the Year from the
National Press Photographers Association, and the World Press Photo of the Year. Burnett lives in Washington, D.C.
(source : wikipedia)
In the middle :  Nick Ut  :    is a photographer for the Associated Press (AP) who
works out of Los Angeles. His best known photo is the Pulitzer Prize-winning picture of Phan Thị Kim Phúc, who was
photographed as a naked 9-year-old girl running toward the camera to flee a South Vietnamese napalm attack on
invading North Vietnamese at the Trảng Bàng village during the Vietnam War.
(source : wikipedia)

fujifilm - "lens bar"

the X-Pro1
