Demo Day at Lens & Shutter

Let's get together and visit the Lens & Shutter's Kitsilano location at 11am for June Demo Day. The Kits location will feature a showcase from Canon, Olympus, GoPro and Fuji, with reps on hand for questions. 

And, as a member of The Vancouver Photography Meetup Group, you'll also get a special welcome, a tour of the store, and meet and greet with the Lens & Shutter crew....to celebrate Lens & Shutter as our new corporate sponsor! Yes, that's right. 

Lens & Shutter has offered a corporate sponsorship to our Meetup group, and will give each of us 10% off all accessories (any regular priced products, except bodies, lenses, binoculars and scopes). Just tell them you're with The Vancouver Photography Meetup to get your discount.

What to expect at the Meetup:
At the Kitsilano (main) location, we'll just show up at 11am to be treated to a showcase of Canon, Olympus, GoPro and Fuji products with reps on hand for questions. Expect lots of celebratory conversations and jovial Lens & Shutter's June Demo Day fun, such as in-store deals, promotional giveaways and draws. 

If you want to come out, we'll see you there at 11am. Please note that some of us will go for breakfast before the Lens & Shutter event, so if you want to join us for breakfast at 9am, be sure to sign up for the Breakfast Meetup, so we can count you in and reserve your seat. At 10:50am, we'll pack up and head down to the Lens & Shutter Demo Day event just a few blocks down the street.

See you there!

~~

If you can't make it out to join us at 11am at the Kits store, or for breakfast before, feel free to drop on down to any of the Lens & Shutter locations. Don't forget to mention you're with The Vancouver Photography Meetup Group for a super happy greeting, tour of the store, and 10% off any reg priced accessories (not bodies, lenses, binocs or scopes).

If you're interested in showing up on your own to the Kitsilano store or the Victoria or Kelowna locations, you'll find the Demo Day party will be on at all locations between 11am and 4pm on Saturday June 14.

The Victoria store (#5-1005 Broad Street) will host demos by Sigma, Ricoh, Panasonic, Manfrotto and Vortex. And, in Kelowna (Terry - this might interest you!!), at 2061 Harvey Ave, the reps from Nikon, Panasonic, Fotopro, Kelly Moore & Rogue will be showcasing and on hand for questions.

The sponsorship and discounts are available to our Meetup group members at all Lens & Shutter locations. Thank you, Lens & Shutter! :)

    It was a fun morning. Thanks to everyone who came out! It was good to get re-acquainted with the store, hear about the renovation plans, and was super interesting to talk to the reps. The Fuji camera discussion was fun, the rep was uber knowledgeable, and it was especially nice to be able to try each of the camera models, compare and discuss. Lots to think about :)

      Yes I should have stayed for the Fuji discussion.

    hey, hope this isn't regarded spam, but it's about taking photos and creating beautiful images. if the weather is not too cold or wet, i'm planning an outdoor photoshoot in stanley park with a model this saturday after the demo. does anyone want to come along and assist / hold the flash/umbrella/reflector? i will go (on bus) after the demo, so around 12:30 - 3:30pm.

    Sorry I can't attend but I'm off on a trip. I'm a Nikon user but I would have attended anyway just to check out the competition.

    Oh, and everyone - say hello to Matt Pinch. He's a new group member, and the Marketing Manager at Lens & Shutter. Matt's eager to get his photography on here with us all in the group - and, he's the guy responsible for landing us such a nice sponsorship! Thanks Matt!
