PMA 2010..and Action! Let the videos commence!

Up the aisles, down the aisles, across to the next exhibit hall, and up the aisles, down the aisles.
Rinse and repeat.
That’s kinda what we do when we go to a photographic trade show.
There are the major things to see that there may have been pre-buzz on, or things that we hope to actually get in our hands to touch and feel for the first time. Plus the things we just randomly discover in our hunting and gathering mode.
And we make videos. Lots and Lots of videos.
The goal is to get a real look at a product and hear the company line, before we get to do an actual field review. The

Here is some of the cool stuff we saw that Nikon brought to this particular party .

They have a couple of more new things that we’ll get to in another video, like an amazing fast and wide lens, but this should get us started.

This P100 with 26x zoom, VR, and 1080p HD video is looking pretty good, especially with the articulated screen. A couple of other cool point & Shoots are also included here. Like a $200 touch screen camera.
Getting back to that articulated screen for a moment:
We have been on a jag about those for a bit, as we have been exploring the ” camera mounted in an unusual position” or getting the “hail mary” overhead shot.
So the D5000 has it; we did it with our external video monitor and a Fat Gekko, and we are checking out the Aputure Gigtube unit, an external articulated monitor that can be used with a variety of cameras.
You may want to hold off on your purchase of the gigtube till we complete our review. Some fine points we think you should be aware of.
It works alright, but has a quirk or 2.

Anyway, enjoy this first vid, and we have a bunch more to edit and post up shortly for you.
