Thousands flock to camera exhibition

J&A South West Digital Camera and Optical Show hailed as a huge success

THOUSANDS of people visited the South West Digital Camera and Optical Show in Barnstaple on Sunday.

An estimated 2,000 made the trip to the Cedar’s Inn to browse a bewildering array of cameras, binoculars, astro telescopes and related products.

Show organisers, North Devon independent camera and optics specialist J&A Cameras, said all the exhibiting stands were delighted by the attendance levels.

J&A spokesman Andy Robinson paid tribute to all those whose hard work had made the show possible.

“Guest of honour, Johnny Kingdom entertained everyone he talked to and posed for photos using the ‘green screen’ studio,” said Andy.

“What made the show special, however, was the number of special offers on the day, with hundreds of people taking advantage of the show to pick up that Christmas bargain.”
