Florida Shows In February 2007
Anyone going to the Largo/St. Pete or North Miami shows in February? I went to the North Miami show two years ago. It was nice, but not worth the cost of the motel for two nights - south Florida in the winter is expensive! The Largo show is a possibility as I have relatives in Tampa, just across the bay. I just need to figure out what to look for and find a way to finance the trip.
Largo/St Peter Show Report
The floor layout is a little bigger than the armory in Miami, but there were only about the same number of actual dealers there. Having now been to shows in Atlanta, Houston, Largo, and Miami my take is that it's a dying venue - I won't be going back to any of them.
One fellow had five bins of Cokin filters (4 "A", 1 "P"), I only found 2 "A" size and one "P" that I needed. I also picked up some teleconverters and a pre-AI Nikon 50mm F1.4 for my "F". Show did not start till 11am on Saturday, so I went to the Pinnellas Park Flea Market from 8 to 10:30. Spent almost as much there as at the show.
