FAIRFIELD — The inaugural New Jersey Camera Show promises to provide photo enthusiasts from beginners to professionals with the opportunity to demo and purchase the hottest new cameras and gear and take free photography classes just in time for the holidays.
Unique Photo, the largest camera store in the state, will present the free, open to the public three-day sales event at its 50,000 square foot superstore located at 123 Route 46 West in Fairfield on Friday, Dec. 14, Saturday, Dec. 15 and Sunday, Dec. 16.
Consumers will have the opportunity to sample and purchase the latest products at the lowest prices of the season through “show-only” sales from more than 50 of the industry’s leading manufacturers. Canon, Nikon, and Olympus are among those who will be on site. Free classes include understanding D-SLR photography, lighting, wedding and portrait photography, and post-production including Photoshop.
“We want to create an exciting holiday event where any photographer, regardless of their ability level, could have the opportunity to try out and purchase the best equipment from the industry’s leading brands,” said Unique Photo President Matt Sweetwood. “As the center for photography in the state, we want to make photography both enjoyable and affordable. If you’re looking for a new camera for yourself or for a present, this is the place to be.”
“The emphasis this year is on the equipment and we’re seeing some amazing breakthroughs in technology,” said Sweetwood, noting that new product offerings include built-in WiFi which will allow for the immediate upload of images from camera to smart phone; enhanced smile detection capabilities; and the ability to shoot higher quality images in low light.
Unique Photo held a similar consumer photo expo during the summer in which more than 3,000 people took advantage of the opportunity to meet with manufacturer’s representatives, demo and purchase new equipment and accessories.
