I fear those events will be crowded but I will try to go to one of those PhotoWorld activities.
Thanks again for bringing this to our attention.

Wow this sounds fun!

Jay Javier used to be my professor back in college...we used the same darkroom in learning black and white film processing, but in different generations hehe. This is a very nice op.

But the best I'd like to see are the Cosplayers...ay, SenorE I can't wait for your photos! I hope you join but not necessarily as a cosplayer hehe. Happy sunday!

Not at all, G. Mirage :)

Actually, the more people learn about it, the more attendees and fun! And with such successful attendance, Fuji/YKL will keep on producing exciting events for all photo enthusiasts.

Hmmmm ... some of those costumes are incredibly well-crafted that I may want to put one on ... hehehe.

Jay Javier is a name I'm just beginning to hear more often, G. Mirage. See that? Had no idea you were once connected with him. Talk about the degrees of separation :)

If the main intention is to check out the latest gear, Sidney, better get there early in the morning and on a weekday.

But for the fun and exciting events, yes, I've a feeling they'll be mobbed. Last year, Fuji/YKL presented many young film/TV stars and you can just imagine the crowd they attracted. It was fun, though.

I've been waiting for this event, Eric. Instead of going to Quiapo, a friend told me to buy a camera during the Photoworld 2008.

Yes, this would be a good time to purchase some camera gear and accessories, Luna. They practically have everything here.

At this time, there's a particular Lowepro camera bag that I wanted to get, but my brother from NYC said he'll just get me one and send it over as belated Xmas gift :)

Have fun at the show!

Ooh, cosplay... I don't know if I could drop by during the weekend, but maybe I can make it on Thursday.
