Re: The Photography Show - PODCAST!

Hi Ian

I shall be there tomorrow. First port of call will be the queue to drop my camera and a couple of lenses in for cleaning. Hopefully I can bump into someone for a natter in the queue.

If you were to want people for your podcast my mobile is <removed for security> but, as I say, for the first part of the day I will be in the cleaning queue.

I have some shots - I'll dig them out.

Re: The Photography Show - PODCAST!

I mentioned this in the other thread, but Panasonic are also offering free lens & sensor cleaning on their stand this year.

Re: The Photography Show - PODCAST!

I'll be there Monday Ian, but likely to arrive a bit after 11.00, so probably won't be there in time. Will send my number over anyway. Thanks for the prices.

Re: The Photography Show - PODCAST!



Anyone interested, please meet here at 11AM - I realise this may be a little too soon for some queueing for the gear cleaning check-in, I'll see if I can put it back a little? Unfortunately, I have to be on my way by 12:30.

The recording will only last around 20 minutes at most, plus the set-up, so half an hour or so.

Ian

Re: The Photography Show - PODCAST!

I will be at the show tomorrow (Mon). My mobile number is <hidden> if anyone wants to link up. I'll be there early and will be dropping off a camera or two for cleaning. Hope to say hello to as many of you as possible. Happy to do the Podcast too Ian - I'll be on the booth at 11am.

Re: The Photography Show - PODCAST!

If itís any use to people judging what time to arrive, I got a lift to the show today and arrived in the waiting area around 09.20. I didnít have FastTrack, but I was in the leading group walking briskly to the Oly stand (behind a handful who ran!) and I was 7th in the queue.

There was a massive crowd behind me in the waiting area, but that didnít start to build up really until around 09.30. There should be fewer people attending tomorrow.

Iím not bringing any more kit to be cleaned tomorrow, so Iím planning a bit of a lie-in.

Re: The Photography Show - PODCAST!

Curses Ian, with the 12-100 at £899 it's going to be hard to refrain! Nearly down to the HDEW price of £825.

Hopefully I'll be there at 11:00 Ian if I've managed to sort out my new lens issues with Wex by then.

It's a fantastic lens Bruce. Temptation is a good thing sometimes!

Re: The Photography Show - PODCAST!

Iím going to resist all those, but I had a prolonged play with the new Ricoh GRIII, and itís going to be hard to resist as a replacement for my X70.

Itís noticeably smaller than the II and focuses and does pretty much everything else much more snappily than the II or the X70. No tilt screen, which is my only real negative, but it is touch sensitive and itís got several special features to enhance speed of focus in Street-type situations.

Itís only been out a day or two so there arenít any independent reviews yet, plus the show offer ainít great on what is a pricey camera, so Iíll sleep on it.
