Vivitar showed five new digital cameras this year at PMA in Las Vegas. There's the waterproof 6200W, the 7 megapixel 7388, 6 megapixel 6385u, 10 megapixel X625, and 5 megapixel DVR530.
Friday started off with a Panasonic press event, riding Hummer H1s through the desert to test their MEGA O.I.S image stabilization and Intelligent ISO Control, they also stopped to give our bums a rest and take pictures of the Red Rock Canyon area. Today, I met with Zoran - the folks behind the Coach series of imaging processors, Sandisk, Kodak, GE, Canon, and Olympus.
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.
Along with several other imaging related announcements, HP has introduced three new digital cameras at PMA. The HP Photosmart R837 is a bit of a design departure from previous HP cameras, offers "pet-eye reduction" and the ability to tag your images in-camera. The HP Photosmart M437 and Photosmart M537 update their entry-level cameras, starting at $109.
General Imaging is building digital cameras to be branded by GE. I was able to spend some time with the leadership team at General Imaging and play around with the cameras a bit. There are a few hands-on shots when you read on.
Kodak is adding two new digital cameras to their high zoom Z line and two new digital cameras to their entry-level C series in time for the PMA trade show in Las Vegas this week. The Kodak Easyshare Z712 IS will be available in April for $299. The Kodak Easyshare Z885 will be available in May for $199. Both the Easyshare C613 and Easyshare C763 will be available in April for $119 and $179, respectively. Read on for a few more details on these cameras.

The Nikon D40x is being introduced as a "sister camera" to the Nikon D40. The D40x features the same compact body and beginning-user friendly features but it can shoot at 10.2 megapixels with a faster continuous shooting speed and wider ISO range. The D40x will be available as a body only or in a one lens kit with a 18-55mm lens. It will be available in April 2007. The body-only price is $729 and the one lens kit will be $799.

It also features a new processor, the TruePic III and a sensor-shifting mechanical image stabilization system.
Today, Olympus is announcing their new EVOLT E-410 compact digital SLR and I got to spend some time hands-on with it a few days ago. The E-410 is a compact, 10 megapixel digital SLR that includes Olympus' Live View MOS sensor that lets you preview your images on the 2.5 inch LCD. It also features the new TruePic III imaging processor. The Olympus EVOLT E-410 will be available in three configurations: body only, a one lens kit, and two lens kit.
