A few weeks ago, Daniel Honigman contacted me about attending the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas this week. We became contacts in 2010 through my work with Mom Central Technology. I said yes, which some of you aren’t surprised by. Technology is my “thing,” especially mobile, computer and photography based technology. Especially when any of those affect families in good (or, uh, not-so-good ways).
I am honored to be going to CES to learn more about the up-and-coming bits of technology in 2011. I’ll be blogging (and vlogging, ooh) my experiences, things I find to be interesting, awesome or beneficial to women, families and photographers alike, and some insider information about certain tech-y things. Some of my posts will be here, a few specific photography ones will land on the photography blog and a nice wrap-up of thoughts, trends and what not will be published on BlogHer.
I will link all posts on this landing page so that they can be easily found. You can also follow my tweets; I’m @FireMom. Sears also brought on some other great bloggers for the event, so you should check out their blogs and twitter accounts as well. If you have any questions (or anything you’d love for me to cover while I’m there), please don’t hesitate to contact me.
- Photography and CES: Excitement for this Photographer — A post at my photography blog dictating my excitement about certain photography related vendors and events taking place at CES 2011.
- 3D and Me (or You) — My first day of press conferences and all I heard was 3D this and 3D that. I don’t know how to feel. But I am excited about some offerings from three big players.
- Keynote Speaks of the Importance of Innovation — CEA President and CEO Gary Shapiro spoke on the state of the industry.
- My Favorite Camera at CES: Samsung FX11 — I fell in love with the Samsung NX11. It is a mirrorless, interchangable lens camera that would be a great teaching camera for those learning photography or an alternate camera for the DSLR lover.
- Camcorders That Wowed Me — I saw a lot of camcorders at CES, but four really stood out.
