Canon will attend The Photography Show in Birmigham, UK.
A brand new photography show for enthusiast photographers is launching next month (from 1-4 March) at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham, UK, and Canon will feature strongly both as an exhibitor, showcasing its superb range of imaging equipment, as well as fielding four members of its Ambassadors Programme as special guest speakers.
Giving talks throughout the duration of the show will be Canon Ambassador Jeff Ascough as well as Canon Explorers Danny Green, David Noton and Clive Booth.
Adobe’s Richard Curtis (author of the recent CPN Lightroom 5 tutorials), National Geographic photojournalist Steve McCurry (Magnum Photos), fashion and celebrity photographer Rankin and legendary portrait photographer Terry O’Neill will also be there, where they will each give talks about their careers and showcase some stunning images.
DigitalRev‘s Kai is comparing the mirrorless full-frame Sony A7 (price & specs) to the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (price & specs), Canon’s professional full-frame DSLR. Can the two compete? Can a mirrorless cam, even if FF, really compete with a professional grade DSLR (that has also access to Canon’s impressing line-up of lenses)?
I would always opt for the EOS 5D Mark III.
