Hello, all! Matt Segal and I have finished collecting photos and notes of the vast majority of the video and photo products at DEMA this year. We're working hard to organize, process, caption, export, and upload images and information, and will be posting updates over the next couple of days (1 post per booth -- will we get complaints this year? :) ).

Sorry for the lateness of the updates! The Wetpixel cocktail party sucked all of the life out of us. Everyone is still recovering.

Oh, you can always see an index of booth coverage here:

I've updated the front page with a bunch of articles on DEMA (basically, covering the first day). It's time to sleep now, but first, here's an image of my first spotting of Alex Mustards and Peter Rowlands in Las Vegas:

Hey guys. I've finished posting all of my booth coverage articles. Matt Segal should finish his coverage by Friday. Believe me -- we are going to do this differently next year. It was waaaay too much information to try to digest.

(cue complaints about over-coverage of DEMA) :uwphotog:
