Focus on Imaging 22-25/February

Focus on Imaging is the UK's largest photographic trade show and  this year the focus team are celebrating their 20 year anniversary. Focus is a chance for all kinds of photographers to get together, share information, see the latest equipment and maybe pick up a bargain or two.

According to the Focus on Imaging website there were over thirty three thousand visitors last year making it the best attended show ever. Entry is free for professional photographer and costs six pounds for everyone else. Registration online is required or you will have to pay on the day at the show. Don't forget that car parking is eight pounds a day at the Birmingham NEC.

What will we see new from our favourite brand at the fair? As yet all seems to be quiet on the photo front with only the PowerShot A480 having been announced so far this year. Surely Canon won't keep us waiting until the PMA show in early March for new equipment. If you are lost then make a beeline for the Canon stand at L26 - probably the biggest stand in the whole show.
