We have just returned from the last of our
roadshows in Durban – again to our biggest
crowd in that city. This was the fi rst year we
opened the registrations to our Facebook
audience as well as the normal database and
the bigger venues we used in most cities were
needed for the larger groups. I would like to
personally thank the entire Canon team as
well as our agency team from One Thread for
another very successful roadshow. Also, a huge
heartfelt thank you to everyone who attended
– I certainly hope we inspired you to go out
and shoot more. One fi nal note of gratitude to
our guest speakers, without them, the show
doesn’t mean anything. As I normally say on
the show, these guys come along out of love
for photography and a willingness to share
their work and experience with you guys – to
hopefully inspire you to greater things.
On the product front, Canon announced a few
new 4K products at the NAB show in April.
We’re very excited to see the new EOS C300
Mk II and XC-10 cameras in the SA market soon.
It is interesting to see that the trend towards
4K is starting to happen so quickly. The large
screen Ultra HD TV’s are already dropping in price and I’m sure it won’t be long before
4K becomes a more common standard.
We will be starting our workshops soon with
our two training partners, Manus van Dyk and
Andrew Aveley. Please keep an eye out for
upcoming lists and venues in this magazine as
well as via your mail if you have attended one of
our roadshows. We are currently finalising the
plans and we hope that these will be of value to
you all in the gaps between roadshows.
Until next time – keep “Click”ing away.
