Heading into its second year, PMA@CES is the place for the best and most exciting exhibits of photo/imaging products and services.

From Canon USA:
 
Canon U.S.A. Announces New Photo Paper Pro Luster Delivering High-Quality Prints For Professional Photographers
 
LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., June, 5, 2012 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the addition of Photo Paper Pro Luster (255 gsm) to the Canon line of professional paper offerings. Providing users with exceptional quality and image longevity when used with select Genuine Canon inks, the paper will help produce images with the luster texture professional photographers have come to expect from traditional photo labs.
 
Optimized for use with the Canon family of PIXMA professional printers - the PRO-1, Pro9500 Mark II and Pro9000 Mark II - Photo Paper Pro Luster delivers vivid colors, reproduces sharp details, and stunning black and white output with rich blacks and smooth tonality. The paper is designed to provide a consistent look and color when viewed under various light sources. The paper will also help increase productivity with fast drying times which lead to easy handling.
 
"Canon understands the importance of providing professionals with the necessary solutions to produce high-quality printing output," said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies & Communications Group, Canon U.S.A. "The addition of Photo Paper Pro Luster will now give professionals a variety of Canon manufactured papers to choose from to meet their printing needs."
 
Canon has worked to expand the lineup of genuine Canon professional paper to offer a variety of options to the end-user. In addition, the Company will continue to work with third-party paper manufacturers to create the printer profiles necessary for Canon printer owners to use the paper of their choice. To date, Canon has worked to create 833 profiles to help users easily complete their printing tasks.
 
With an expected availability of late June, Canon's Photo Paper Pro Luster will be available in two sizes, 8.5 x 11 and 13 x 19 inches, with an estimated selling price of $34.99 and $99.99 respectively.
 
B&H carries Canon Photo Paper.

Just posted: Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM Lens Review
 
I had an unusually high number of requests for a review of this lens, so I squeezed this one into the mix of reviews I've been working on.
 
Here are some status updates regarding my currently overloaded to-review list:
 
First, the Canon PowerShot G1 X Digital Camera Review is long overdue. My primary concern for this camera is how its image quality compares with a DSLR such as the also-small Canon EOS Rebel T3i. I've spent a lot of time with the camera and have many tests shot with it. But, I think that even the latest version of DPP (v3.11.27.0) is generating non-sharp results from G1 X RAW files that appear to be quite sharp when the "High speed" (lower quality) preference is selected.
 
Another review I had hoped to bring you by now is the Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT Flash Review. The big new feature of this flash is the RF remote capability. It takes two to play this game - and I've had an Canon Speedlite Transmitter ST-E3-RT on order since day one. Where this product is remains a mystery - I might have to buy a second 600EX-RT to move forward with this review.
 
Another MIA product is the Canon BG-E11 Battery Grip. I've also had one of these on order since moments after the announcement was made.
 
If my Canon EF 500mm f/4.0 L IS II USM Lens and Canon EF 600mm f/4.0 L IS II USM Lens ship any day as expected, these lenses will become my top review priority.
 
Update: Just received a ship notice for my Canon Speedlite Transmitter ST-E3-RT and Canon BG-E11 Battery Grip.
