Exposure List of meh. Waste of time averted!


I may have said this here in the past, but things are only worth what you put into it.

Talking to manufacturers, playing with cameras that aren't in stores yet, finding bargains, having a lemur crawl on you...I had a fun day out, and the coach bus ride was nice too!


I always enjoy going to the Exposure Show for the same reasons. The chance to speak with the reps and see and fondle gear without the usual sales pressure is attractive. I often run into people that I may not have seen in a while so it is nice to catch up as well .

On the other hand I went twice to the so called "big one" and found it a waste of time. The prices were obscene for what I was looking for and while I did find one good deal on a filter on the first try, the second visit wasn't productive in the least. Plus I paid for the privilege of wasting my time. At least the Exposure Show is free.

Just a reminder that Vistek's Profusion show is coming up next week, Tuesday 18th and Wednesday 19th at the Toronto Congress Centre.

I love the fact they have this show mid-week; not only do I get to skive off work for two days, but there's less chance of kids at this event vs. Henry's.

Has this show happened before? Looks good and isn't too far from my work... I will probably swing by for a bit

It's been on for a few years, I went once before but was disappointed because Olympus wasn't there.

But I'm going this year for a few of the seminars and demos.

Did anyone go to that show?
How many visitors do they tend to have?
Just wondering if it is worth it to get a booth to get rid of a bunch of knick knacks.

It's a very small space so expect it to be packed full of people and everything good goes super quick, however there are always deals to be found depending on what you are looking for. Selling your gear there is possible but its a toss up whether you will get anywhere near asking price or not. Lots of great film gear and of course loads of slightly expired film for sale from Abraham (he's an awesome guy who is at every show.)

CHANGE OF LOCATION for the Sunday March 30th 10am-3pm camera show!

They had a fire at the usual location, so here are the details of the new location:

DELTA TORONTO EAST
2035 Kennedy Road, Scarborough, Ontario M1T 3G2
The hotel is located at Kennedy and the 401. It has a large banquet room and there is ample parking in their multi-level garage and it will be free for our vendors and attendees.
