PHOTOS TELL YOU a lot more than words when it comes to a new meeting space in Arncliffe, Sydney, that features the photography of EIZO’s Australian photography ambassadors. The Gallery is designed as a combination office space, demonstration area and meeting place. One of the best things EIZO can do to sell its monitors is to let photographers see them in action and while this is not the key function of the new Gallery, there is a selection of EIZO’s latest monitors scattered around the various meeting areas.

More and more Fujifilm users turned up and added their images to the board - more and more users were interviewed by Fujifilm and asked to show what they do and how they work. And more and more good advice was added by the Fujifilm Australia team of technicians, demonstrators, and representatives. Every trade show and conference added more people. Well, now it has added us*- Camera Electronic is proud to point people to the Fujifilm social media sites as well as their international technical sites. More events will be featured as they come to Perth. More equipment will be featured as it is released.

There is no cheerier word in the language than cashback*. Nikon Australia realised this and decided to make the photographers of Australia smile with a list of cashback offers.

Well, if you want to make yourself either very happy or very unhappy in 24 hours, here is your chance. Leica Australia and Camera Electronic are willing to trust you out the front door with a Leica M10 camera and a lens for a day. You get to go see what the Leica fuss us all about on your own with your own vision and ideas. You'll experience the ergonomics that have sold the camera to working professionals and enthusiastic amateurs since the mid 1950's combined with the latest of digital advances. In case you think that's funny - the 1950's and all - consider that many of the iconic images that have formed your view of the world came through Leica glass into M-series cameras...
