Thread: The Photography Show NEC 2018

    Default The Photography Show NEC 2018

    I took the 200D to the show with 55-250mmSTM. 10-18mm STM, 85mm f f1.8 USM
    A very worthwhile event, I took the opportunity to visit the Canon stand of course and the CSC range which look pretty good. I had a look at the Sony A9 and A7...and the Olympus EM-1 MkII which I suspect is the most mature system in the CSC offerings. Has a good look at the Tamron 70-200 f2.8.
    Also had good chat with Alamy which Ive started to upload to and Bob Books
    There were some good offers with show discounts at Cameraworld...and a few nice models too..

    I used manual aperture and shutter with auto ISO with a max set at ISO3200.

    200D 55-250 ISO3200....and no post processing!

    and this one with PP

    these three ISO3200 with 55-250mmSTM...not at all bad and very usable...loss of hair detail on close inspection though

    Chris Packham was talking about the 5DSR....didn't get into this one properly due to the queue and I'd been to the Dogsonality talk immediately before...this was taken with the 85 f1.8 ISO200....totally underexposed and pulled back in PP

    I resisted the bargains...except for a wrist strap and LCD protector for the 200D, new CF/SD cards and some A3+ paper from Ilford.

    I thought I might get a comment ....I guess no one is rushing to grab one of those bargains....or is in such awe of the humble 200D and 55-250STM.....Ill remain quietly amazed in the corned on my own then..... : (

    There is an article in the current issue of EOS magazine (April to June 2018) featuring the EOS 200D as part of a lightweight travel kit.

    Well, there's quite a lot to take in with all those shots, and I have been extolling the virtue of the 55-250 elsewhere as Jeff has been using it with his M3.

    To reiterate my point here,in my opinion it's certainly the best "value for money" lens that i own!

    Only just seen these Brian , thanks for going to the effort , like I said previously , think I would need to have a wedge of spare cash to tempt me to go , is Chris Packham a Canon user now ? Thought he was a Nikon man .

    Yes he is a Canon user....I don't know if thats some sort of exclusivity/sponsorship deal.
