  • Photography Show - fast path tickets?

    It is a very long time since I visited this show or equivalent. I hope to arrive on the Monday about 10 am - doors opening time.
    Typically is there a crush of people trying to get in at the doors opening time, is it worthwile buying the fast path entry ticket?

    Thanks for any info - I hope to get the camera cleaned by the Olympus techs.

      I didn't realise they did a fast pass ticket.
      But to answer your question yes there is a build up of attendees at the opening, more of an orderly crowd than a queue really. If you have to pay for the fast pass I guess it depends on what it gets you and how much it costs. If it's just front of the crowd then I wouldn't pay much for that.

            I found the option after selecting the day, then at the bottom of the page that shows all the special talks on the day.

            I think the benefit is that you jump the queue waiting to get in.

            As I do not like standing in queues (it is too painful) it is worthwhile using a fast track process.

              Until, of course, everyone has a fast track ticket, then ........

                  Will they clean any Oly model or just the OMD range?

                    Sounds like the O2 priority thing for gigs at their venues.
                    Just show the O2 pass on your phone and you get to use the priority queue.
                    Last used it at the Brixton Academy at a sold out gig to see Within Temptation.
                    Free cloakroom and cheaper drinks too, its free so why not

                    Think I might give it a miss for three quid though, not like it will take ages to get in at the NEC
                    You can usually also pay extra to park nearer although strangely enough not for the Photography Show
                    Its needed for disabled spaces, not surprised if the attendees are representative of the average Camera Club

                      They cleaned my old E510 a couple of years ago. It has a broken catch on the card door and they were very apologetic that they couldn't fix that too. Just didn't have any spares with them. As it become so popular the last couple of years you may find that extra repair work cant be accomodated these days.

                        I was on a later flight last time and was told that they would not be taking any more cameras for cleaning. I played the 'I flew here and only brought my camera due to the free cleaning' the nice lady fitted me in ; glad she did as they repaired my lenses cap which I did not know it was faulty.
                        On an earlier flight with my wallet this time, looking forward to the 12: 00 meet up.
