See What You Missed At PhotoPlus Expo

If you didn’t make it to the PhotoPlus Expo in October, you can still see some of the highlights from the show. The Sony booth was a hive of activity as avid photographers took in presentations from the Artisans Of Imagery and got a first-hand look at what Sony cameras and lenses can do at three live-action stages in the booth. There was even a VIP lounge where Sony photographers got a break from the hectic show floor, recharged themselves and their devices and had a chance to enjoy a cup of coffee with a photo actually printed on the coffee!

All day on the main presentation stage, the elite Sony Artisans Of Imagery shared their knowledge and experience. If you missed the talks in person, you can still see them here on AlphaUniverse.com
