A quick summary of the first day of the PMA trade show. Sony officially announced their Cyber-shot DSC-G1 and plans for upcoming digital SLRs. I got to see some great bags from Lowepro and Crumpler. Fujifilm's IR Simple transfer capability is very cool. Other stops were at Panasonic, Nikon, Samsung and HP.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-G1 is Sony's first foray into wireless-enabled digital cameras and they're going big. The G1 can transfer images to any Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) device wirelessly, has a 3.5 inch LCD, 2GB of internal memory and can take 6 megapixel images. All this camera comes at a cost though, with the G1 retailing for $600, starting in April.

Here is our full review.
The Joby Gorillapod SLR is a fun, flexible-jointed miniature tripod that can handle a camera up to 1.75 pounds. It is ideal as a travel tripod or for people who don't need a "more serious" tripod.
