This year’s IFA show will be followed up with another big event, Photokina 2010. Although the Photokina 2010 will be the major show for digital imaging, we still expect IFA 2010 to be important and surprising as well. Already before the start of the IFA in Berlin a part of the digital camera introductions have already been made, among them some interesting digital SLR cameras. The IFA 2010 Consumer Electronics Trade Show is the moment to showcase the latest cameras and innovative imaging products. And maybe we will see products that combine the world of mobile and cameras. Quotes from high key persons within the imaging world point out to the fact that this could be the time where we will see a new segment of (mobile) imaging. The DSLR cameras and system cameras are still hot products and are responsible for a growing market share. Check out the IFA 2010 show for the latest digital camera news.
