Sony’s Bloggie Sport (MHS-TS22) is their most durable pocket video camera; it is tough enough to withstand drops (from reasonable heights), resist dirt and go underwater up to 16 feet (as they described, not tested by us). The rugged camera was released in March and now enjoys the company of similar products like Samsung’s HMX-W300. When it came down to testing it, I took it out to some shows to see what it was capable of. It measures 2 3/8” x 4 5/8” x 27/32”, weighs a mere 5.2 ounces (all technical specifications are from Sony’s website) and comes with a wrist strap so you don’t drop it.

Just on the eve of the PDN Photoplus Expo in New York City, Canon decided to throw an exclusive soiree for its staff and media with the teaser “Legends in Imaging”. I shoot events with my trusty Canon and wanted to take a look at what they had in store at this event.

When I arrived at the location (a trendy loft space known as Skylight West), I found they had on display the new Canon EOS 1D-X and also the belle of the ball, the Pixma Pro-1 printer. Canon executives, including Katsuichi Shimizu and Chuck Westfall, gave presentations about the new technology and the collaborative efforts involved between internal divisions and external clients to get the printers to reproduce images “exactly as you envisioned”. To demonstrate the power of the technology, Canon invited one of their “Explorers of Light”, Vincent Isola, to get some hands on time with the equipment.
