LensVid Exclusive: Talking to the Camera Store Guys in Photokina 2016

Today we have a special treat for you. During Photokina 2016 we didn’t just shoot videos of products and interview manufacturers but we also had some time to sit with colleagues for a talk. On this video we talk to Chris Niccolls and Jordan Drake from the Camera Store in Canada.

We talked to Chris and Jordan about there first experience in Photokina, playing with the new GXR Fujifilm medium format camera, the disappointment from Canon and Nikon at the show and the rise of mirrorless cameras.

We also wanted to know how they have been handling the drop in sales over the last few years in the store and what there plans are (no there are not looking for early retirement mind you).

It was a whole lot of fun and we do want to meet them in Photokina 2018 for a longer session.

Chris and Jordan actually released there own Photokina 2016 look with some funny colleague meetups of there own – worth watching as well


This video is just one of over 20 videos and interviews that we took during the show (many more to come in the next days and weeks) and you can find them on our special channel on Youtube and on this link on LensVid.
