Pepcom Digital Experience!

CES (un)officially kicked off last night with the Pepcom Digital Experience! press event at the Mirage. Tromping around the Mirage Grand Ballroom, I dodged girls in roller skates handing out key chains (the event’s theme was “50′s Diner”) and the Gizmodo boys hustling around to refresh their blog every ten seconds, to catch up with our contacts at Nikon, Canon, SanDisk, HP, Kodak and Olympus, along with DP tech editor Tony Gomez, getting a sneak peek at the products that the manufacterers will be unveling in the coming days at CES. I got a chance to get my hands on the hefty and impressive Nikon D3X and the Kodak Easyshare Z980, a compact with a 26 mm wide-angle, 24X optical zoom lens. I also noticed that a big trend in compact point-and-shoots this year is touch screen technology, with Nikon and Sony boasting this feature with their Coolpix S60 and Cybershot DSC-G3, respectively. The Coolpix S60 actually only has two traditional buttons: on and off. This “iPhone technology”, as it feels very much like one, certainly isn’t brand new this year, but it is sure to take off now that technology in all media heads in that direction. I will have much more news today from opening day on the CES floor, so check back soon and check out more product shots after the jump…

Raise your hand if you own a Yashica digital camera. Chances are, if you’re here in the States, and own a point-and-shoot as either your primary digicam or as part of your camera arsenal, you have a Canon, a Nikon, or perhaps a Kodak or Casio. At least something that the lay person has heard of. Well, according to Akihabara News, Yashica (read: Exemode) might be where you turn next for your point-and-shoot needs.

In Your Neighborhood: Hollywood, CA

This one’s close to my heart. For years, I’ve been traveling to Tijuana, Mexico to visit the children at a few orphanages throughout Baja California with an organization called the Corazon de Vida Foundation. One of the homes that CDV visits monthly is called Casa Hogar Sion, and a group of loving people has developed an organization dedicated to that particular home, called Friends of El Faro. El Faro is constantly in need of the basic supplies to sustain life for the many children who call it home, and the Friends of El Faro have been indispensable in raising awareness and funds on behalf of these children. As we all know, the arts are a great tool for raising awareness, so Friends of El Faro has teamed with talented photographer (and Friends of El Faro founder) Leigh Kilton-Smith and A & I Gallery to create an exhibition of photographs of these beautiful children called I See You. 100% of the exhibit sales will go directly to the orphaned, abandoned and abused children of Tijuana. I can’t think of a better reason to buy original photography.
