    Brand Advice
    Do you want to understand a feature on your Canon, or find a menu on your Nikon, or would you like to share something about your Olympus or tell us about Sony - an evening of brand specific help and advice.

    Preloved Gear
    Buy or sell pre-loved camera gear.  Bring along any items you no longer use, from cameras and lenses to bags, straps and accessories.  Label each item with a price and your name.
    There will be plenty of opportunity to browse the items on sale and to chat to the owners about the kit.  This is a great chance to learn about the pre-loved items on sale before making the decision to purchase, and to streamline your kit by selling items which are taking up cupboard space at home!
