I made my visit this morning, and for the first time ever, came away without being given/offered any form of bag. I had the feeling that tripods and similar weren't as much in evidence as in recent years. As I half expected the sales offers this year on Canon DSLRs & lenses didn't attract me at all. What did I see of interest? a) Cutaway models on the Canon stand b) New style advanced amateur HD camcorder from JVC (GC-PX100) - too new for pricing etc.to be known at this time, but looks interesting with its accessible manual controls etc. and could compete with Panasonic's sub £1,000 offerings. c) Some B&W prints demonstrating that some inkjet prints still have a long way to go! (To save embarrassment, I won't mention the stand, but I really was surprised at how poor the demo print was. Yes, it was a neutral grey, but the tones seemed to sit differently on the paper, depending on their tone. (Metamerism?) Other surfaces (of the same image) were much better.) Let's hope that next year's is better!
