    Wouldn't it look a little out of place among all the processing tanks?
    I'd encourage it, nonetheless.

    Perhaps the few of us visitors who will be there on Friday could agree to meet at, say Ari's 8x10 camera, at 1pm or some other mid-day time? I suggested the 8x10 because it seemed fitting for a bunch of LF supporters in a "digital world."

    KOH, you, Ari, and Bob Salomon will be easy to visit, since your locations are "fixed." I was just hoping that "the rest of us" might try to meet each other at a fixed location (i.e. the 8x10 at the FLM booth) and a fixed time (I arbitrarily picked 1:00), then we could easily visit you "working types." It seems that the digital concentration of the show has scared off almost everyone on this forum, although that surprises me since not only are there a bunch of analog manufacturers represented, many of us use digital scanners and printers, and in fact many of us also seem to have at least a minor interest in digital cameras and backs.

    I'd love a meet-up at one of our booths in the German Pavilion; my 8x10 should be easily visible.
    Like Bob and koh303 said, it's a chance to meet the movers and shakers in the analog film business.
    Last year I was a visitor and met the president of Sinar.

    At our booth, you can meet the president/owner of FLM, Werner, and his son, Markus, the chief designer.
    Anyway, I'm off to the Javits centre right now to set up our booth, I hope to meet some of you over the next few days.

    You mean that you met the former owner of Sinar.

    Yes, I just looked that up, and Mr Fassler is no longer at Sinar.
    It was a pleasure meeting you earlier today, Bob.

    Thank you Bob, same to you.
    I met a couple of forum members today at the show, and managed to have a brief chat with Omer (koh303) at CatLabs.
    I hope to see more of you tomorrow or Saturday; cheers!

    Re: Anyone going to Photo Plus Expo in NYC?

    Didn't notice any other forumites, but it was enjoyable to say hello to Ari and Omer (KOH on this forum) at their respective booths at the German Pavilion. While the PhotoExpo didn't have all that much which was specific to large format, it sure was fun to play with the toys! Two of the more applicable toys were at the Epson exhibit, but how much can you play at an Expo with a new printer or a new scanner? Omer made a convincing case for my switching from tray development to the big Jobo Expert drum with a manual roller, the Arca D4 geared tripod head looked just as enticing as its (extravagant) price tag promised, and any number of digital cameras tempted me. (Ari's FLM sort-of-ball heads - they lock independently on two axes- were tempting, but if I'm going to dream, the three times as expensive Arca came out on top!) As an antidote I will retire to the darkroom later this weekend and make some old-fashioned prints.
