  • Description

    COLOGNE'S GIANT EXHIBITION OF PHOTOGRAPHIC EQUIPMENT - PHOTOKINA - OPENS TOMORROW (SATURDAY) AFTER A BREAK OF THREE AND A HALF YEARS. AND IT'S BIGGER AND MORE COMPREHENSIVE THAN IT EVER WAS.

    THERE ARE 597 EXHIBITORS FROM 23 COUNTRIES AT COLOGNE THIS YEAR, AND THE PHOTOKINA EXHIBITION HALLS ARE CRAMMED WITH ALL THE EQUIPMENT AND ACCESSORIES NEEDED FOR ANYTHING FROM THE MOST TECHNICAL PROCESS TO HOLIDAY SNAP SHOTS.

    THE MOST IMPORTANT DEVELOPMENTS HAVE HAPPEN IN THE APPLICATION OF ELECTRONICS TO PHOTOGRAPHY.....IN DARK ROOM EQUIPMENT AND, MOST RECENTLY, IN EXPOSURE METERS, SLIDE PROJECTORS AND THE CAMERAS THEMSELVES.

    THE TREND HAS BEEN TOWARDS MAKING PHOTOGRAPHY SIMPLER, AND HERE THE BIGGEST ADVANCE HAS BEEN IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF QUICK LOADING SYSTEMS, WITH CASSETTES THAT MAKE IT UNNECESSARY TO THREAD FILM INTO THE CAMERA.

    PHOTOKINA ALSO HAS SECTIONS SHOWING WHAT CAN BE DONE WITH THE EQUIPMENT ON SHOW. SOME OF THE WORLD'S TOP PRESS AND FASHION PHOTOGRAPHERS HAVE EXHIBITIONS OF THEIR WORK. IN THE BIGGEST PHOTOGRAPHIC STUDIO IN EUROPE, LEADING PHOTOGRAPHERS CAN BE WATCHED AT WORK, AND THERE'S A TELEVISION STUDIO TOO.

    UNDERWATER PHOTOGRAPHIC EQUIPMENT CAN BE SEEN IN USE IN THE BIGGEST DEMONSTRATION TANK IN EUROPE.
