Photokina 2016 Monday Madness: We’ll be there! Check in with us early and often


posted Saturday, September 17, 2016 at 8:52 AM EST


The Photokina trade show in Cologne, Germany is just around the corner, and we don't want our readers to miss a thing! The show itself starts Tuesday, but Monday is press day, and we expect to see some significant announcements. Photokina comes around only every other year, so companies often hold back at least a few important product announcements specifically for the event.

Our publisher, Dave Etchells, as well as one of our senior editors, William Brawley, will be attending several of the press conferences Monday, to bring you all of the exciting announcements first hand. And during the week they'll also be meeting with executives, product planners and engineers, to get the low-down on the latest gear and technology. They'll also have hands-on time with some of the new gear during the week, so Monday is just the beginning!

Below are the scheduled times for each manufacturer's press conference, all taking place Monday, September 19th. We'll be bringing you information in real time for a number of these, and for at least one event (possibly more) we'll be live-streaming, so check in with us early and often throughout the day!

As always, we encourage readers to leave questions for the various manufacturers in the comments below. There usually isn't much chance to ask detailed questions at press conferences, but we may be able to get some reader questions answered in the interviews later in the week.
