Virtual fairs

In 2021, the main shows were canceled due to the COVID-19 epidemic.
The 2020 edition of the Photokina was first suspended and then the organization of the Photokina finally announced that after 70 years of existence, it was shutting down the show for an indefinite period. This decision is due to the constant decline of the photography market which no longer provides a viable basis for the international photography fair.

Both CP+ 2021 and CES 2021 were virtual fairs with a significant drop in exhibitors and visitors.

CES 2021 is full of smartphones, microcomputers and televisions. No camera presented but we can remember:

The launch by Canon of an interactive site to highlight its activity in the field of satellites. In June 2017, Canon launched a satellite around the Earth, the CE-SAT 1. The idea behind this satellite is simple: equipped with a Canon EOS 5D Mark III body associated with a 40 cm telescope, the satellite is capable to capture particularly detailed images of the Earth. $

Sony presents its Sony Airpeak S1 drone, it is the smallest drone capable of carrying an Alpha Series and FX3 camera. It goes from 0 to 90 km/h in 3.5 seconds, can reach the maximum flight speed of 90 km/h, remains stable with winds up to 72 km/h (20 m/s) for a range of 22 minutes of flight time. It is equipped with four rotors, 5 camera and 2 sensor vision systems, two batteries on the top of the device and folding arms for easy shooting and obstacle avoidance and braking function. It is possible to create and pilot automated flight plans.
The Sony Airpeak S1 is priced at $ 9,000, without gimbal and camera (fall 2021).
