A home for the things I think are worthy of sharing. Will largely be photography based.

UK Photoshow 2016 deals

Just been to Britain’s largest annual photography show in Birmingham NEC – these times called “UK Photoshow” but in the past “Focal”. I’ve been to it a few times over the years -usually just to geek out (hey I know good photography isn’t about the gear – but I enjoy that aspect anyway) but also occasionally to buy equipment.

There have been good deals to be had in the past – but I think less so in recent years. I’ve gone into the habit of photographing price lists to share them online so others can see if they want to go. This year though I’ve just been on the penultimate day – so maybe not so much of use – but what the hell.

I only photographed the price lists I saw that were easily photographed – a fair few only had prices on individual items – as I wasn’t buying – I didn’t go for them.

Sorry for the quality – taken on a phone.
I’m not one for taking my camera to photography shows.

Photography Show 2014 – Prices

Calumet Nikon lenses

Some prices from The Photography Show – 2014.

Only had the phone to photograph these so resolution is a bit off.

In past years I’ve heard that prices are negotiable – so try to haggle 😉

On the whole I was disappointed with the deals so only bought a memory card and some printer paper samples.
