Yokohama, Japan (PRWEB) February 01, 2013
The Camera & Imaging Products Association (CIPA) commenced its CP+2013 Camera & Photo Imaging Show, a comprehensive camera and photo imaging show, on January 31st in Yokohama, Japan. The event will be held for four days until February 3rd, 2013. More new products are introduced at CP+ than at any other imaging trade show in the world, and imaging technology is considered one of Japan’s last manufacturing strongholds. With the theme, “Connecting The World, Expanding the Limits of Photo Imaging,” the 2013 event calls attention to the powers of photography through four days of product and photo exhibitions and a wide range of events that showcase the joys of shooting, viewing, and connecting pictures via new media such as internet and various devices, with people. The features of CP+ 2013 Camera & Photo Imaging Show include:
30th anniversary celebration of “Camera Grand Prix”
New trend in single-lens camera video shooting
Exhibition of digital cameras with increasing range of functions
Collaboration with the Photo Yokohama event and Yokohama Museum of Art
Showcasing the photography world's newest events
Additionally, CP+2013 is holding various seminars for the first time including “Video Seminar for Professionals,” aimed at teaching professionals about the production process and philosophy, and the “Japan Advertisement Photographer’s Association (APA)” seminar, which provides actual production case studies from professionals’ viewpoints.
CP+ has over 50 years of history (it began as the ‘Japan Camera Show’) and is now recognized as one of the three largest camera exhibitions in the world, along with photokina in Germany and PMA@CES in the USA. Approximately 80% of the world’s camera and photo imaging technology and innovation is dominated by Japanese manufacturers, and its market share is sustained by the high quality and sophistication of Japanese optical techniques and electronics. Taking advantage of Japan’s position at the center of the photo and imaging industry, CP+ acts as a launch pad for presenting the world with the latest technology in the industry, from the initial input of data to its final output.
