The Canon Pro Solutions 2011 is the third year that Canon has run the show, with the highest number of registrations this year. There's still time to register for the 26th, on Canon's website.

Canon Pro Solutions 2011
Canon Pro Solutions 2011, London, takes place from the 25th - 26th October 2011, taking place at the Business Design Centre, just 5 minutes walk from Angel Tube Station - it's easy to find as it's sign posted from the tube station.

Canon Pro Solutions Registration

Not only can you see the latest Canon EOS 1D X Digital SLR and Canon PIXMA PRO-1, you can also leave the show with special show offers from various retailers such as Park Cameras, Jacobs, Calumet and others. There are 33 exhibitors as well as Canon making this an interesting and exciting show to attend.

Canon EOS Stand
Try Canon EOS lenses - People were eager to see the new EOS 1D X, and were also able to try many of the EOS lenses, as well as other EOS cameras in the range.

Canon IXUS 230 HS Colours

We were there on Tuesday, when it seemed quite sparsely attended. The seminars were mostly popular with one or two looking a bit desperate to get people in.

Just a word on the queuing to get in: totally unnecessarily we were lined up in one queue whilst several lines were possible, proven shortly after by most people just walking in and avoiding the official line in. We got our badges very quickly and entered just after opening.

I had an unpleasant conversation with a chap on the Jacobs stand who was most aggressive when I questioned whether his "exhibition special" price for the 5D mk2 body was really all that "special". So much so that I walked away with the money in my pocket, to spend it elsewhere.

By contrast, we had an extremely informative chat about large format printers and their pros and cons. The Canon chappie we spoke to knew his stuff inside out and back to front, and was quite happy to chat for a half-hour or more whilst discussing inks, papers and canvas printing, profiles, photoshop plugins, power consumption and whether to leave them switch on all the time (yes).

A lot of video stuff there that I bypassed, but those stands seemed to gather a crowd.

The food was a tad expensive but not as bad as the NEC. We eventually ate at O'Neills just outside and had a really nice pint of Guinness with it, an option not available at the Business Centre.

Whilst I understand (perhaps) Canon's motives for withdrawing from Focus to stage their own exhibition, there was insufficient here to warrant my trip from Wales and (obviously) also a lack of comparison with other manufacturers that I find a valuable part of Focus.

Can't see going again. Next year I'll stick to Focus on Imaging. If Canon are there, great, if not, more fool them.

Was I really the only EPZ person who went and decided to comment?

Perhaps we are not the target audience.... in which case who the **** is?
