How much discount do you expect at "Focus on Imaging" for Photographic gear ?

Just wondered what others have experienced in terms of discount on goods at "Focus" ?

If there we some good offers I could be tempted by some Studio Lighting plus a monitor calibration tool Anyone else taking a shopping list ?

Dave,
I have purchased several items over the years. The first time was a 3mpixel Minolta at a discount of about 25% less than Jessops. Internet buying was not that well organised at that time.
Three years ago I purchased my Canon 350D for £359 (£510) and a Canon 17-85 IS lens for £297.(389) The bracketed prices were the going high street discount prices at the time. The Canon 350D was a Canon UK refurbished camera 12 months warranty and the lens was brand new.

For Studio lighting have a look at the photomart stand. I showed an interest about 4 years ago in some wedding albums and Iv'e been on their mailing list ever since and Iv'e not purchased anything since. Their site is Photomart.

I hope this helps Brian.
PS I'm not sure if I should have included the site here. I will delete if its not welcome!!

I would have thought that the last day was the time to go - they might be unloading the stuff rather than taking it back. You'd have to take a chance on if they still had what you wanted left tho'.

Dave, I check on the internet prices of the items I want just before setting out so I will know whether or not I am being offered a bargain. I have bought cameras, lenses, printers and monitor calibrators at the show in the past.

Have the cheek to barter them down from whatever price they tell you, you might be pleasantly surprised!

Re: How much discount do you expect at "Focus on Imaging" for Photographic gear ?

I'm going on Tuesday. May be too much traffic in Monday.

I will have to be careful this year,after purchasing my Canon 350D ,Lens and a few other items a couple of years ago at Focus, on the way home I had a mobile call from my wife to say that John Lewis had barred my "Master Card!!. . Apparently they thought it had been stolen and someone was "milking it". I thought my wife was joking at the time but it had been stopped, as I found out when I tried to fill up with fuel on the way home.
Very nice of them I thought.

After the sympathy vote, Eh? That may only work with the female sales staff! Then again, if you sent your new hubby in with your order and the same sorry tale to the male sales people it would definitely work! He's definitely got my sympathy!

PS No, really, congratulations Summer and to your OH!

Not quite free but Corel sent me this info.


The Focus on Imaging Trio Deal

To celebrate Corel's involvement at Focus on Imaging 2008, we're giving you the chance to save 20% when you purchase Corel® Paint Shop Pro® Photo X2, Ulead® VideoStudio® 11.5 or Corel® Painter™X when you visit the Corel Store before midnight 14th March 2008!

Iv'e never forgiven Corel for buying out Micrografx in 2001 and burying the company within 6 months just to remove the competition.

Regards Brian
