The Photography Show

I'm off to the new "Photography Show" on Monday 3rd March.

Any other forumers going on that day?

Maybe an impromptu meet on the Oly stand or perhaps a coffee? Maybe a coffee on the stand for loyal forum memebers

You going to be there Ian?

Re: The Photography Show

I'll be there the 1st, and depending on the size the 2nd. I know it's crazy busy then but from experience last year if there are deals they will go FAST. For example last year Camera World had the 60mm for £301, stock didn't last the first day, and they did not re-stock to my knowledge. At least when I asked and bought the last one they said they were not going to re-stock.

Olympus is actually going to have a real stand / display there so I heard too. Big screen, seating, privacy curtains...

Re: The Photography Show

I may be doing a session or two on the Olympus stand - mainly talking about the e-group and our hire service

Re: The Photography Show

I will be going on a coach with my club on the Monday.
Ian, I presume that the 'exhibition' of E-Group members work that has been discussed briefly in the past won't now happen

The design of the stand may not be able to accommodate this but I am working on an alternative proposal...

I bought my 60mm from CameraWorld on this offer at the show last year. They didn't have any left on the day I was there but they took payment and sent it to my home when it came back in stock, no postage charges either. Great service from them.

I am hoping to go on the 3rd...I am also hoping that CameraWorld will do the same again this year. Not that I want (or need!) a new lens

Re: The Photography Show

Well I won't be going this year as stupidly promised to see Mother-in-Law next weekend (she lives in Birmingham). So can't make the run up twice in a fortnight.

Might be safer for my wallet too!

I'm a possibility for Monday as I can't get at the weekend. Plans are a bit fluid for the moment though.

Re: The Photography Show

Will be there Monday too. You'll be able to recognise me as I'll be (a) carrying an e-m1, and (b) looking confused.

Having never been, and from the comments, I'm thinking about leaving all my plastic behind and sticking what cash I can afford to lose in my left pocket (a method drilled into my by my father whenever he took me to the races).

Cheers, Paul.
