My camera club is planning on going on Sunday, as usual. Snow put paid to this last year. If different to the above I will try for the Monday.

Re: Photography Show 2019 - Can we manage to meet up this year

FWIW, there is a smartphone app for The Photographic / Video Show.

The app shows the floorplan. I have not looked further.

But Olympus is in the usual stand. I intend to get there spot on opening time and have Olympus clean my camera and lens.

Re: Photography Show 2019 - Can we manage to meet up this year

On the Oly site they confirm equipment cleaning will be happening (previously they've cleaned 3 items per person per day - bodies/lenses etc).

The lineup of talks and appearances looks great, unfortunately they've put the wrong days/dates on the listings on this page: https://www.olympus-imagespace.co.uk/tps-2018/

I tipped them off (and I'm hoping I've spotted the deliberate mistake and that my E-M1X prize will be in the post tomorrow)

Ah, yes. That link (found through Google) went to last year's site! The Oly elves got back to me extremely quickly and said they'll fix it in some way and make sure searches went to the correct page.

I got thanks, but no X, unfortunately

I can't find a 2019 page, so presumably camera cleaning isn't yet a given.

Re: Photography Show 2019 - Can we manage to meet up this year

Yes get in early I almost missed out last year but a kind staff member took pity on me.
I intend getting an earlier flight and heading straight to the Olympus stand to book in my gear for cleaning if they are doing it this year.

Re: Photography Show 2019 - Can we manage to meet up this year

As far as camera cleaning is concerned didn't have mine done last year as it was only a year old and haven't noticed anything dirty this year either so is it worth getting a clean? How often should you get them cleaned is probably a difficult question regarding use I guess. Just wondered how often you guys cleaned your cameras?

Iíve had them done once a year at the NEC for quite a few times now. Yes, Olympus sensors are amazingly good at throwing off dust, and visible issues on images are rare and usually transient, but it will build up on the sticky pads in the bodies.

Whatís the downside of getting it done?

I have used my cameras in some extremely dusty environments on safari game drives on most years, when every external nook and cranny has had visible dust at the end of each day. Removing that is surely a good thing, since if any of it gets internally it risks shutter wear etc plus wear to the bayonet and controls.

They also clean lenses (I believe they do some dismantling if more than a little internal dust is visible) and, again, getting it all out of the moveable parts of lenses is surely a no-brainer?

Kinda like a service for the car... I like the idea to have a expert technician (I hope) looking over the camera for you/me. Nothing lost for certain....

Re: Photography Show 2019 - Can we manage to meet up this year

Last year I had my 12-40 mm lens hood repaired, I did not know it was damaged! I usually bring my camera just to take advantage of the free clean.
Cost saving for cleaning offsets my airfare.
