We have regular monthly cameras shows here in Southern California and I have been attending them for many years. "Back in the day" the shows were huge with eager mobs attending the shows which were held in gymnasium-sized venues. As the digital revolution progressed the shows dwindled and shrank and are now a mere fraction of what they once were. But, in the last year or two they have begun to experience a definite resurgence in attendance and there is actually a brand new monthly show beginning this month (which hasn't happened in many years). In my experience prices have begun to raise again too for certain types of equipment.
