- Kodak: Philip Scott
- Konica Minolta: Paul Zakrzewski
- Nikon: Bill Giordano
- Olympus: Stewart Muller
- Panasonic: Bert Desmond

Topics discussed include the slow-down in growth of the digital camera market, consumer (and retailer) education, digital SLRs versus fixed-lens prosumer cameras, the impact of camera phones, the camera of the future, opportunities for monetizing images, plus the state of the market in general.
