The CP+ Camera & Photo Imaging Show 2016 was held on Feb.25-28, 2016 at PACIFICO YOKOHAMA. The new thing was the CP+ Used Camera Fair and Outlet Fair for camera accessories held on the 2nd floor above the camera show.
Canon booth had these fantastic rhythmic gymnasts doing their stuff for photographers trying out the new EOS 80D and EOS-1D X Mark II.
Sony booth was full of people to hear train fanatic/photographer Nakai Seiya give a slide show. Besides his passion, his ordinary and down-to-earth personality has made him very popular.
Nakai Seiya has become really popular and famous in Japan for shooting trains. He shoots at least one picture of a train every single day (since 2004).
Flowery Olympus models.
DJI had a netted booth to demo an impressive flyng drone. Supposedly crash proof from dead batteries. It can also lock on to a fixed position so if any wind or bird knocked it, it would return to its fixed position automatically.
FujiFilm calls its exploded camera “Decomposition.” Sounds rotten, but it wasn’t.
JCII Camera Museum displayed the earliest cameras in history. Camera obscura.
Wet plate camera complete with portable darkroom.
Sony Mavica, basically the world’s first electronic still video camera in 1981 and harbinger of digital cameras.
CP+ Used Camera Fair is held for the 1st time together with CP+. They might do this every year from now on. On the 2nd floor (above the camera show).
Together with the used cameras, they had an outlet area for discounted camera accessories like tripods, monopods, bags, and more by major brands like Manfrotto, Etsumi, and Velbon.
In Queen’s Square is this Minato Mirai Gallery that you will pass by on the way to CP+. Very good (and graphic) exhibition of Hiroshima and Nagasaki bomb photos. Free admission.
