Expedition PhotoPlus Expo 2016

Expedition PhotoPlus Expo 2016

Ever since I got into my current photography life I have done one event annually, Photo Plus Expo. It has become my way of exploring the photography gear frontier. I generally go in the hopes of testing out new gear, but over time its become an expedition. I meet up with my local photog friend as well as those I only see once a year. We share, coffee, meal, and try to go on photowalks. It’s a proper photography conference.

However I did get to get my hands on the Hasselblad X1D-50c which was nice. Very tempting.

I decided on a new camera bag the MindShift BackLight 26L It’s a rather nice bag which I can carry my daily gear in. It is actually rather brilliant.

Expedition Gallery

Photo Plus Expo 2016 was a good show.  I did not do much photo walking, as I normaly do though. I did, randomly, get a little in though, as well as images from my time on the show floor.  Next years Photo Plus Expo is already on my calendar. Gear wise, I think 2016 was mostly an off year. I am still waiting for something new from Nikon. Here are my images from in and around the show.
