    I agree that er wasn't much to see for analog film users. I thought the lomographic booth was nice though. They even had a film developing (in coffee) session. I don't think I will ever buy on of their camera but I liked the positive admosphere. I also liked the large format camera's from Shenhao.

    It was nice to see the Harman pinhole camera in real life, but I think I will stick to building my own from cans for now. They also had direct positive paper on a new experimental base much like the base of Ilfochrome. Sussana Kraus from Imago 1 1 (http://www.imago1to1.com, they use it for their 1:1 camera) told me that the base was probably to expensive to put in production. She did have some test material.

    It was a pity, that all the 'analog' booths where so far apart. It would have been better if all the analog stuff had been concentrated around the lomo booth for example.

    I missed the booth of Film Rescue International http://www.filmrescue.com/ and there European partner Frank Bruinsma of www.super8.nl because I didn't know it was there and because it was in a totally different hall then the rest.

    Well, my 'Is film dead?' article appears in tomorrows (Thursdays) Day 3 Show Daily paper at http://www.showdailys.com/events/default.asp?id=36

    It was edited by the folks in Koln to shorten it by making some cuts and a little rewriting - sigh ... Some things ended up not sounding like my writing, but at least the idea gets across (I hope) and a reduced mention of APUG (with the URL) was still included.

    Nice piece with only one mistake. (Unless I don't have the latest info) I thought that Fotokemika had ceased all production. Other then that great article.

    Many thanks!
    Hi - A few days ago after hearing about the Lucky color line ceasing, I emailed them using Google translate. They replied and said B/W will continue, which was confirmed by someone who can read Chinese...see:

    I visited Photokina right at the first day. The Leica booth was indeed very impressive. I´ve tried the S2 and it feels really great. Tough like a weapon and very ergonomically designed. The gallery was very interesting. Most pictures were digital, but there were also many made on film on display. I was rather disappointed that Hasselblad was mostly about the H-Series. I´ve tried the H4D and was not that impressed. Cheap plastics and rubber buttons, slow and inconvenient to use, did not balance very well in my hands. They had a 202FA with 80/2,8 CFE and a 501cm with 40/4 IF CFE too, but mostly to demonstrate their digital backs. The Zeiss booth was great too. I tried the new 135/2 and it feels great! Focusing is super smooth. Much better than with the 100/2 Macro Planar. They had a Hasselblad 503cw with 100/3,5 lens I was allowed to play around with. I had a long conversation about Hasselblad and the V-Series with one of the Zeiss employees, who was very kind. The Linhof booth was great too, albeit small. Very nice people! Also tried the Rolleiflex Hy6 and new Tele-Rollei at the Rollei booth, which was pretty small. I was happy to see Rollei at all! I was very disappointed that Gitzo was not present at Photokina this year however. With regard to film, there was indeed not much to see...
