China report: Canon and Nikon vs rest of the world.

I am in China now. This is a completely new world for me. The day I arrived in Beijing I went to some big photographic shopping center. I have seen 50-60 different shops selling Nikon and Canon gear. I havn’t found any Panasonic cameras here! Incredible :( 

Olympus cameras are rare and mostly E-P1 cameras. This shows how strong Nikon and Canon brands are, you can see their advertising everywhere. The good news is that the E-P1 seems to sell very well here and maybe this can help Panasonic too….maybe!

P.S.: Interesting, few shops are already selling the new Sony A850 which has been unveiled yesterday! Hope the next Panasonic camera will gain at least halph of the attention given to the new Sony camera!

I am ready for a hole night traintrip to Hohhok. I have to take 100 clouds pictures inside the Gobi desert. I will use both E-P1 and Zenza Bronica for this job. Let’s see which camera can take better pictures ;)

 

cheers,

Ale
