Live Tradeshow Coverage
Jan 31 - Feb 2, 2008
Las Vegas Convention Center, NV

Welcome to Imaging Resource’s PMA 2008 Tradeshow Coverage. PMA is the photo industry's most important show of the year, and this year we're pulling out all the stops: More videos, more news reports, more booth photos - nobody covers PMA like Imaging Resource! The 2008 camera model year actually began with the CES show in Las Vegas, so you'll find photo news from that show below, until it's supplanted by pre-PMA announcements. Check back often, this will be an exciting year at PMA, and IR is dedicating more resources than ever before to bringing you all the latest from the show floor!

If you have any problems viewing the videos, you may want to upgrade to the latest version of Macromedia Flash.
