    PMA / The Digital Show

    I haven't seen much or any discussion on here surrounding the annual PMA show this year.

    They have changed the name of the show side of the PMA conference and it is rather hard to find links to it on the web.

    Back in Melbourne this year it opens 12 days from now, runs over the weekend and free ticket registration is available at The Digital Show site.

    Nikon, Fuji, Nikkor, Sigma, Tamron, Tokina and too many other bits and pieces to list.

    I've requested a meetup for this same day .... HERE

    Kind'a makes sense to make the show the centre of a meeting point for the day/afternoon/evening.

    {Sigma}; ->10-20/4-5.6 : 50/1.4 : 12-24/4.5-5.6II : 150-600mm|S

    Do they have one in Sydney?
    Or is it like the other shows where it alternates locations?
    I'm not totally useless, I can always be used as a bad example

    I think it alternates, the last time I went to the Melbourne one was 2 or 3 years ago, I think they've had a Sydney and maybe a Brisbane since then but I could be wrong.

    LOL! .. and here I was thinking it'll be a simple matter of just looking out for the geeks with all the camera gear!!
    (well that ain't going to work well is it?)

    AP shirt indeed!

    FWIW: Since I was last spotted at any AP meetup, my hair has actually grown longer, as opposed to the original plan a few years ago of cutting it shorter ... so look out for the small group of birding photographers pointing their 500mm f/4's at a mobile birds nest

    Aaaaah, so you did the same as me and stayed away from the Olympus and Canon "tents" in the back blocks Mic?

    Just kidding mate, it was a pretty good event.

    LOL, I can say I went no-where near the Oly stand, but I did enjoy some of the Nikon presentations.

    The best one I found was some random guy at one of the gear stands doing a presentation about using off-camera flash. Had a chat to him afterwards and got some little nuggets of info.

    Must admit some of the muppets on the Canon stand didn't know their products which was disappointing. It was great that they gave easy access to their line-up of dSLR and lenses. Over three visits I got a good hour playing with the 5D3 along with an assortment of lenses. Late in the day I did manage to corner a Canon product manager (who was one of those not behind the 'sales' counter) to ask him some questions and he gave me some more meaningful answers.
