PhotoPlus announced this morning it is canceling its in-person event, opting instead to host its annual photo conference online due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
PhotoPlus 2020 was originally set to take place at the Javits Center in New York City from October 22–24. Despite numerous other photo conferences being canceled, PhotoPlus insisted the in-person event was still taking place, until today. In a press release, event director Joseph Kowalsky said:
‘The difficult decision was made after consulting our community partners and supporters and closely monitoring the ongoing progression of the COVID-19 pandemic in the U.S.’
To replace the in-person event, PhotoPlus announced PhotoPlus+, which will be an ‘online experience and community bringing together visual storytellers with the tools and services they need to create.’ The event is designed to be a broader event, with product showcases, live demos, gear launches, networking events and more taking place starting November 1, 2020.
You can find out more information and register for the online PhotoPlus+ event on the PhotoPlus website.
The Sony a9 II didn’t make a huge splash in the industry when it launched, but it’s certainly left an impression on us. Read our full review to see why it’s got the best autofocus system we’ve ever seen.
The Olympus OM-D E-M10 IV is the company’s entry-level DSLR-shaped mirrorless camera. While it has a higher resolution sensor and new processor, its biggest focus is on selfies.
The Sony a7S III is a 12MP full-frame camera primarily designed with video in mind. We take a look beyond the specs to see what it offers to filmmakers.
The Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III is our favorite Micro Four Thirds camera for stills shooters to date. It jam-packs plenty of cool/useful features into a small, tough-built package that’s a pleasure to shoot with and thus, has earned our silver award.
