Round-up of PMA 2008 round-ups (updated)

We are a poor blog so we can't afford trips to PMA 2008, but we can afford to create a round-up of PMA 2008 coverage on the net! So let's see how the various websites and blogs are covering PMA, a lot of them live from the PMA 2008 floor or from Vegas, others commenting remotely. Buffet and casino pictures may be included ;-) There are many sites and blogs out there, we are only offering a sampling. If we left anyone out or if you want your own round-up to be added to the list, just let us know in the comments section or send us an email.


Photography Sites
First up, dpreview has set up a special PMA 2008 coverage page. Then Imaging Resource has gone in PMA coverage mode.

One of the most reputable online retailers has added multimedia PMA coverage on their site. Check what Calumet Photo has prepared (K20D, D60, Nikkor lenses, XSi, Vixia and more).

Wired magazine's Gadget Blog has posted their own round-up featuring some of the HD video digicams among other things.

More from the Gadget Blog, they feature a lens round-up. Lenses can sometimes get overshadowed by the waves and waves of new digital cameras.

Meanwhile CNet's Crave blog has their own round-up and wrap-up.


Almost 100 new digital cameras in 2008
That's right, we've had almost 100 new digital cameras from the major manufacturers in 2008! Our count is at 97, and we don't even count the "generics". To make life easier for you, we have summarized all 100 cameras here and also started a humble pre-ordering list for some of the hottest cameras and lenses in our opinion. If we missed any, or if you think others belong to the pre-order list, just let us know! The comments section is always open for commenting.

One more item, this is not directly from the PMA floor, but first sample pictures from the Sigma DP1 have been posted in Japan, and they are discussed in this Sigma SLR Talk dpreview forum thread. Now that was a railroad sentence. So what do people think of the samples? We won't spoil the discussion. Check it out yourselves!
