From PMA:
JACKSON, Mich. – PMA – The Worldwide Community of Imaging Associations, announces 2014 PMA@CES will be held Jan. 7-10, 2014, at the 2014 International CES®.
“We are fewer than three weeks away from 2013 PMA@CES, but we are already hard at work on the following year’s event – and we are happy to say it will again be held at CES,” said PMA Executive Director Jim Esp. “Offering PMA@CES at the International CES makes it much easier for attendees and exhibitors to discover everything that’s happening in the world of photography and digital imaging in one place, at one time – without the expense and time commitment of two different shows. We are also happy to announce the DIMA, PSPA/SPAA and AIE Conferences will again immediately precede 2014 PMA@CES, on Jan. 5-6, 2014.”
PMA President Allen Showalter commented, “It’s great to be partnering with CES again in 2014. The joining together of these two events allows attendees to experience not only all the digital imaging and photography exhibits at both CES and PMA@CES, but also a huge array of other consumer electronics and technologies that are relevant to our industry. In addition to being able to interact with all the top companies and industry members at PMA@CES, there are plenty of opportunities at CES for our trade and supplier members to network with people in related industries, and find additional ways to increase their revenue streams.”
As is the case for 2013 PMA@CES, the 2014 PMA@CES event will be held at the LVH, an official venue of the International CES, adjacent to the Las Vegas Convention Center.

From PocketWizard:
MiniTT1 & FlexTT5 updated beta firmware release plan for new Canon and Nikon Cameras
So. Burlington, VT – As Canon and Nikon continue to release new cameras and flashes, PocketWizard Photo Products has established an evolving Firmware Release plan for the MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 radios to address compatibility with these new products.
The MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 offer a comprehensive list of unique features such as HyperSync, Power Control with an AC3 ZoneController, Optimized Rear Curtain Sync and many others including our legendary broad-based reverse compatibility. These features are what differentiate PocketWizard radios from other wireless triggers. The MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 require specialized programming which is highly dependent on the internal coding of the camera or flash. When a new camera or flash is released, we must reverse engineer the new internal coding to make sure the timing of our features is compatible with the new hardware. This reverse engineering and testing can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months before it meets our standards and can be released as a beta into the market for further testing. Some gear is easier to reverse engineer than others.
It is important to note that PocketWizard does not receive any inside information from either Nikon or Canon regarding the release of new gear. PocketWizard Photo Products must order new Nikon or Canon gear from a local dealer and wait for it to be shipped. Once the product is received at PocketWizard headquarters in Vermont, it is then thoroughly tested, reversed engineered by our firmware engineers, tested again and then tested yet again for compatibility.
In order to expedite the process, we will be releasing “rolling betas” which will then be rolled into production releases based on feedback during the beta phase. Although we cannot provide specific beta firmware release dates, what we can tell you is that a typical beta period is three to five weeks and a production release should fall shortly thereafter assuming nothing major was discovered during the beta process.
Prioritized rolling BETA release plan for MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 Firmware:

  1. MiniTT1/FlexTT5 BETA firmware release for Canon
    • Compatibility with Canon 1D X Camera*
  2. MiniTT1/FlexTT5 Beta firmware release for Nikon
    • Compatibility with Nikon D600 & Nikon D3200
  3. MiniTT1/FlexTT5 Beta firmware release for Canon
    • Compatibility with Canon T4i & Canon 6D

* Please note that the BETA firmware release for the Canon 1D X will have limited compatibility. The firmware release will include Manual Power Control and Manual HSS and HyperSync®. The beta release firmware for the Canon 1D X will not have the capability to perform TTL exposures.
The schedule above represents our BETA release plan. We will make decisions about official PRODUCTION releases as we go, depending on reverse engineering progress and field reports.
We intend to update the Nikon and Canon compatibility pages on on a regular basis. Any updates to the firmware release plan will also be updated on Facebook and Twitter.
