Had a great time at Focus on Imaging yesterday and managed to keep my credit card in my pocket all day … well I did buy Micheal Freeman.s ‘The Photographer’s Vision’ but that was 40% off so it didn’t really count!
I’m not really a gear freak, so the launch of the Canon 5D III sort of passed me by, I couldn’t be bothered with the crowds and for £3,000 you could have two Mark IIs. And as for a Nikon D800, well I have enough of my desk taken up with hard drives for now and 36 Megapixel files are going to be HUGE! I wonder how many of those images will ever be printed?
What I really enjoyed was meeting up with all the people I usually only contact via email. Had some great discussions and caught up with people I haven’t seen for a while which made the trip down the M6 and huge car park queues well worthwhile.
There’s still a couple of days left if you haven’t visited and Wednesday always seems to bring some additional bargains.
