Just got back from Vegas last nite where I attended the Wedding & Portrait Photographers International trade show. If you're at all interested, I wrote a bit about it on my blog right HERE

I still use my novatron power pack and 4 heads after 30 years. They've held up perfectly all that time. Even have their old flash meter (digital by the way) and it still works. I wonder where the super priced high end stuff will be 30 years from now? As for the Canon 5D replacement, I think its standard practice to give all of the reps some story line about new products, so you never really learn anything by asking the question === just more of the story line. I think the 5D replacement will be a Major leap.
Cheers,
rfs

Aw, I didn't see ya there Jimmy ..... did the whole convention, platform programs for three days and all .... not as good as last year's show IMHO, but a few good ideas floating around. Not a whole lot new at the trade show either. But it's in Vegas, so its a cool way to go, what with writing the trip off for business purposes.

It wasn't quite as crowded there this year either ...... last year they claimed 10,000 photogs there and every talk I went to was full ..... this year, not so much. I guess the soccer moms don't care about learning the photography business as they beat more and more photographers out of business???

Blame technology: It's a two-edged sword.

Yup, the technology drives the soccer mom's ability, that's for sure. We just have to keep a step or three ahead with knowledge of light, compositional skills and fulfilling our customer's needs with products the soccer moms can't get their hands on ..... thus the plethora of coffee table type wedding album suppliers at WPPI (one of which calls me a frequent customer), not to mention all of the photographers hawking their workshops, actions, etc .....
