We’ve just returned from our roadshow in Cape Town over the first weekend in March and we’re understandably excited to bring it to the other two major centres soon. The crowd was the biggest we’d ever had in the new auditorium venue – with over 850 people joining us for the show. This was particularly good for all of us, especially when you consider the large group of “first-timers”.
The response to our new cameras on display at the show was particularly encouraging. Firm favourites were the new 11-24mm lens, EOS 760D and EOS M3. I’m really looking forward to our next two shows though as we are really impressed with our two speakers. We will be featuring some of their work in Click magazine shortly. We’re also pretty stoked that our head office assisted us with brand new projectors for our roadshows this year. The New XEED WUX400ST projectors we are using are pretty exceptional as they are brighter than the old model we used before and feature short-throw technology. Essentially the projector has a very wide angle rectilinear lens with shift technology built-in –allowing us to move the projector MUCH closer to the screen to maximise the quality of the image without needing the long cables and tables in the middle of the crowd. Colour rendition is also excellent and both of our guest speakers are over the moon with the sight of their images on a big screen.
I hope you’re enjoying our featured photographer every month on our Facebook page, if you haven’t yet liked the Canon South Africa Facebook page, I’d recommend you do so as we have lots of handy info there for all levels of photographers.
Until we see you on the road –
keep “Click”ing away.
