At the Photography Show today

Morning all, am on the train to Birmingham and have posted an update on my DPNow blog:

http://dpnow.com/forum2/blog.php?b=394

I'll be at the show all day and will be mainly exploring the show exhibits and making a video to be posted later. I'll also post some shots here

Ian

Re: At the Photography Show today

Have a nice day! (while I sleep, listening to the rain here)

It sounds like it should be a good revitalised show with all the displays expected there & I'll be looking forward to seeing the video & photos from it.

Re: At the Photography Show today

Today would be the best day for me to go. It's supposed to get up to a balmy -5C today before dropping back down to the minus teens.

Re: At the Photography Show today

I had intended going, but my first grandchild arrived last night

So I shall look forward with added interest to Ian's reports.

Hi Ian

Hope the show is going well. How does the attendance compare to last year's Focus event?

The last Focus was not so busy but that was good news for visitors as it was easier to move around. I remember past Focus events when it was really difficult to get around.

I may travel up on Sunday - still undecided

Some good deals. 25 / 1.8 for 250 and 60mm macro for 320 plus reductions on others. No stock of 9mm fisheye yet.

It was quite busy but I got the feeling the aisles were not so congested - maybe they are wider this year? Also, there are various timetabled events on the periphery of the halls and much fewer in the centre causing overflow into the aisles. There are more exhibitors and no unsold space. The show is moving to a bigger hall next year.
