    Well I was worrying about turning up a week early

    I'm sure the current Photographic Trader will have the correct date in it

    Depends what you're after. I generally turn up late (2pm ish) & it seems some sellers are already starting to pack up then. So I may be missing the best of it. Having said that the offerings are quite patchy. I've been 3 or 4 times & it's mostly the same people selling the same stuff. I haven't made any good scores, just the odd useful bits & pieces.

    The best thing I got was the William Allard book for $5. I'd never heard of him before & the book is a gem. Has lots of his National Geographic work along with a thorough explanation of his approach to documentary photography. I've also picked up a cheap bulk loader & at the last one I got a Canon 3000 at a good price to give to my niece who is learning photography.

    I'd say there is approx 20 tables, a couple seem to specialise in Leica & Hasselblad stuff, some are 35mm SLRs & a few mostly have all sorts of filters. If you are after some specific things you can walk around & ask & generally the sellers are pretty helpful. They'll refer you to the right person & there's a chance of setting something up for later if they don't have it there. I'll probably turn up to this one. I'm looking for a portrait lens for my Crown Graphic (210mm ish) & a narrow tip cable release.

    I went to the one in Sydney earlier on in the year.
    The doors were just opening and there were quite a few people lined up already (maybe around 20-30). When i got inside alot of people were still setting up, but there was a good mix of gear on offer.
    From my observations SLR bodies/lenses were essentially at "ebay prices", but i noticed quite a few rangfinders, and other gear like cases, filters etc that were going pretty quickly at cheap prices. I was lucky to pick up a couple things that i thought were very cheap.
    Afterwards I heard that people were giving away old film developing gear near the end of the day, but it was more trash than treasure.
    I'm going to try and make it to the one coming up in October eventhough i probably shouldnt!
