I'm a 38-year-old sales manager at an electrical retail store in Bendigo. I'm happily married to a very understanding and gorgeous wife and have four girls under the age of 10. Home life is pretty hectic, as you might imagine, so apart from my passion for gadgets, the occasional game of golf keeps me sane.
My category to cover at CES is the lowdown on everything in cameras, from digital still cameras to video cameras and anything in between. These are products I've had some experience in buying and selling. However, on the scale of the Las Vegas CES, with nearly every brand available, I'm feeling like a total amateur.
This should be an exciting year for digital still camera brands, which are constantly under fire from new competition in the form of PDAs, MP3 players, and cell phones, all offering built-in cameras. The big brands will all be at CES, including Fuji, Canon, Kodak, Olympus, Panasonic, and Sony, so we should expect to see a bumper crop of new models to ogle. Of course, I'll give you guys the scoop on all the new releases.
Thanks to CNET for hosting this remarkable competition. I had no idea that anyone like me, from this end of the world, would get to go the biggest gadget fest on the planet!
