The Best of 2009- CES
With CES 2010 approaching next week, let’s take a look back at what made waves in the digital photo world at CES Las Vegas 2009, earlier this year:
- The Sony Cyber-shot G3 impressed us when it was unveiled as the the world’s first Wi-Fi enabled camera (we later covered it in a full-length review in the Digital Photographer spring 2009 issue), and the Micro Four-Thirds Panasonic Lumix G1 wowed us as well, and it ended up being included in our “Editors’ Picks” guide for the best gear in the Digital Photographer winter 2009 issue. We also got to check out the Sony Webbie HD camcorders, which are ideal for uploading straight to sites like YouTube.
- Other exciting products at CES ’09 included: the Olympus Stylus Tough-8000 (which we went on to do a full-length review of in the Digital Photographer fall 2009 issue), the Samsung HMX-H106 flagship camcorder, the Canon Vixia HF S10 camcorder, and the Pentax K2000D and K20D D-SLRs.
- And who can forget when yours truly was featured on “Good Morning America” for a split second during CES ’09 in a segment aptly titled “Geek Chic: Gadgets for Girls”?
- One of the most exciting products that we saw at CES ’09 wasn’t a camera or even a lens, but a digital photo frame like no other by IPEVO, which we featured in the Digital Photographer spring 2009 “Exposure” column.
