This weekend was the photography show.
Most of the usual camera manufactures were there including Hasselblad but not Leica as well as the big lighting companies such as ProPhoto and Elinchrom.
I finally got the chance the tryout a Nikon Df, it is actually very good, the image quality with the DF sensor is fantastic its just a shame about the price. How about putting a D4 sensor in a D800 body and focusing system, that I would buy in a heart beat if it came under £1999.
A lot people in the show were carrying their SLR’s but it was interesting to note that if it was not an SLR then it was likely to be a Fuji mirror less camera.
Many stands had some great show offers on and I did indulge myself and bought a new Epson A2+ printer, I was also tempted by the offers on the Fuji X100s but I managed to restrain myself.
The highlight of the show for me was a talk given by Joe McNally on the main stage. I have been a great admirer of Joe’s work; he is great at using light and creating lighting effect from either small strobe or full studio flash gear. It was great to finally meet him and he is a tremendous speaker. If you get the chance I urge to go and see him.
