Nikon Solutions Expo reviewed by MC rebbe

When I first heard about the Nikon Solutions Show, I, quite naturally, assumed it would be little more than evangelism for the converted. Then I saw the lineup which, boasting names like Joe Cornish and Andy Rouse, turned out to be even better spec’d than Nikon’s latest DSLRs!

Two of the highlights of the show were, unquestionably, Cornish’s and Rouse’s talks. Joe Cornish co-presented with fellow top UK landscape photographer, Paul Gallagher, both of whom continue to work traditionally using 5×4 field cameras (the former using colour transparency, the latter using black and white). This being the case, some may wonder what they were doing at a show sponsored by a company that has never made 5×4 cameras and that recently announced they are to stop manufacturing film cameras altogether (ya boo).

Sounds Expo, the UK’s music tech show, took place last weekend…right in between the industry’s two major trade shows, NAMM and Musikmesse, which are always jam packed with new product announcements. Unlike those events, Sounds Expo is an end user’s show, meaning there are not normally any product announcements there, making  it a monumental feat of bad timing, as everything due to be announced at Musikmesse in Frankfurt is still under wraps and everything announced at NAMM is already yesterday’s news. So while it provided  a good opportunity to check out NAMM products that have yet to hit the shops, waiting three weeks and holding the event after Frankfurt would have been to everyone’s benefit.
