With the abscence of camera dealers and shops in the East Midlands ,I am considering a visiy to the Afore mentioned fair.
Has anyone been or can pass comments on It
Being unable to drive due to sight problems, It is a long round trip to ask My wife.
Any feedback would be appreciated.

Never been, not even to wolverhampton but will be there in 2 weeks, when is this fair please?
I've been a few times in the past (last time was about 7 years ago) If it's like it used to be its a large hall with about 100 or so camera dealers. These are camera shops and individuals with lots of camera gear.
It's usually older stuff, mostly second hand and much vintage. When I went there was little digital but things may have changed. You are guaranteed to find bargains, and rare stuff, and unusual stuff. These guys have been setting up their collector's stall for decades and mostly all know each other.
It used to be a good atmosphere, and great to look round - like a cross between a car boot sale and an antique fair but totally photography based.
It's a good opportunity to connect with various dealers around the country get a feel for what they stock and then you can make contact later knowing who you're dealing with via mail order.
Thanks for the feedback.
Think I will give it a try
Wolverhampton Camera Fair dates....
Wow, just looked at the photos and it seems they do not let in anyone under the age of fifty.

meh, i just wont wear makeup then
Thanks for the link techno
The last Wolverhampton camera fair was 2 days ago on the 17th Feb.......there's another one in April though !
It's on my doorstep, so I go sometimes......but it tends to be busy with those of a senior disposition, usually looking in the tat-boxes at filters & lenshoods !!
But if you ignore this clientele, there's usually plenty of stalls, though less so these days(?)......but the digital content is increasing all the time, & I bought
a nice Panasonic compact & a lens for my Canon gear just before Xmas, & other Canon gear earlier in the year..........
It's worth a look....but it's the luck of the draw, whether you find what you're looking for..........
Oh !....the admission price drops to £3 after 10 am (£10 before that time).........
thanks for the comment I am 72 so that dosn'nt bother me.
As long as there is someone with me to point me in the right direction and make shure I don't get lost I will be OK.
i went last year (like Nicknut - it's 5 mins from where i live) and can attest at the age of 42, i was probably one of the
youngest there by some margin
definitely the place to go for film cameras or filters (literally thousands of different types), but did find that the digital stuff
was a bit pricey.
worth a nosey though as they normally also have a pc fair running at the same time in a different room.
