    We were there and had LOTS of fun and even saw a few things. I will be creating this Blog in two steps. The first will be to get the pictures out here for you to view. I will then go back and add a caption/info on each picture. There are a few pictures from the first day that are not in my gallery yet... Look for them in the next day or two.

    This appeared to be the BEST DEMA that I have ever attended in terms of shear numbers of exhibitors and attendees. The people who came were focused on business. There were a few new gadgets here and there, but nothing too earth shattering.

    Howard Rosenstein with the new FUJI 3D Camera.
    This was truly an awesome find.

    Even Nick Hollis was jazzed about the 3D camera and images.

    [​IMG]

    Howard took a lot of time to bring me up to speed on the state of the Camera Art.

    Nikon and Canon's entry into the 'Hybrid" Point and Shoot.
    The ease of a Point and Shoot, but they accept different lenses and have a HUGE image plate.

    There was a lot to see, and I doubt that I even got 10%. I have hardly any of the resorts this year and concentrated on gear that caught my eye. Did I miss anything? I'm sure I did.

    It's always good to stick around the Whites booth. These guys are so full of energy,
    because it's the first time all year that they have been WARM! :rofl3:

    The best part about DEMA is meeting the peeps in person. Whether it's a manufacturer, a resort or just another ScubaBoardian, the personal connection just makes it all more fun.
