OT, but who's coming to Cologne for Photokina?

Hi all,

just wanted to know if any of you are coming to Cologne to check out all these great new products we're expecting?

Might be nice to get together...

Michael

I will. Only for a few days (~2 for Photokina, at least one for visiting the town), and I'm quite afraid I won't have much to see - I'm talking about the Pentax stand.
But I was tricked, I was told I *have* to drink the local beer - and Photokina is a good excuse
Which reminds me... I have to find a nice (and not-so-expensive) place to stay

Have one for me Kunzite. When I was working in Düsseldorf for a few weeks, I liked Cologne's local beer a good deal better....

Well, although I don't drink beer, the "Kölsch" is supposedly very very good...
And Cologne is an O.K. tourist city with quite a few sites to fill at least one day of photographic site seeing. Personally I never got "blown away" by the sites & sounds & smells of Cologne, but that's just me...???

If you're still looking for a place to stay, first have a look at HRS - HOTEL RESERVATION SERVICE and do a search for Cologne & the dates you intend to be in town for. HRS is THE place to find hotels in Europe. Just keep in mind, Photokina is THE event in Cologne and prices are generally through the roof.

I've got my mother in law staying with us, so it's a bit too "crowded" already...

If everything else fails, my mother sometimes offers her spare room for "out of town guests" for little money...
If there's any interest, just PM me; I could ask her...

Cheers,
Michael

Thanks, I'll give it a try. Also for the HRS, I still don't know how many we'll be (there are few Romanians here but no one seems interested).

To all going to Photokina, don't forget to share info with us less-fortunate people who can't come.

It's not that long ago that most nude photographers were using Spotmatics, it can happen again
People used Spotmatics in the nude? I am kinda glad I missed that bit of photographic history.

I cannot go to Koln in September as a spectator because I must go to Mainz in October as a performer... and cannot afford two trips at this time.

Would have been tempting otherwise.

You could stay a month in Cologne, just joking...

I will be there on Friday 26... and will questioning Sigma when they want, at last, to deliver HSM lenses for Pentax...
