Leading photographers such as David Bailey and Nick Danziger will take to the stage to share stories and insights from their careers, and you’ll be able to undertake a number of workshops and talks on almost every aspect of photography. It’s a great time to pick up some tips that will take your skills to the next level.

The latest photographic equipment will also be on display and you’ll be able to get hands-on with it and talk to experts about how to get the best from the new features.

So, what can you expect to see?


Canon is expected to have several cameras on show, including the EOS 1D X MARK 2 which is capable of shooting 14 frames per second with full AF/AE tracking. The other DSLR expected to be on show is the EOS 80D. This 24.2 megapixel CMOS camera is designed to be versatile enough for great results from still and video shooting.

There’ll also be two new Powershot cameras on display. The SX720 HS is Canon’s slimmest superzoom camera yet, and is designed to produce superb results even in low light conditions. The G7 X MK II is the first camera to feature Canon’s DIGIC 7 processor and offers unprecedented levels of control in a compact body.


Nikon’s amazing FX format D5 is due to make an appearance at The Photography Show. This pro-level DSLR is astonishingly powerful and enables you to film in 4K. For those who prefer a DX-format camera, there’s also the D500 that packs the performance of the D5 into a more lightweight body.


Panasonic look to have some exciting new compacts to show us. The TZ80 and TZ100 are extremely user-friendly and portable. With the TZ80 you get a 30x zoom and the ability to shoot 4K video. The TZ100 has a 10x optical zoom and is ideal for photography while traveling.


Sony’s A6300 is the latest addition to their award winning range of mirrorless cameras. The autofocus is amazingly fast and can lock on in just 0.05 seconds, and has 425 phase points densely positioned over the whole image.
