    If anyone is curious I went there 5 years ago when I had an Olympus 740 point and shoot. It is a fun event.
    Here are some images from then.
     
  3. Oh cool, thanks for sharing Allan! :smile: I've never been, was toying with the idea of attending.
     
  4. same here Gretchen, haven't made it yet myself.

    BTW, check the Globe, there's usually discount coupons in the A&E section, especially towards the weekend.

    They have a discount coupon on their website, $3 I think for the opening weekend. $25 seems a little steep, the NY fair was $20, SCT was $15, CT(Hebron) upcoming is $18. Guess it's the location....

    Nice shots Allan, were you in a public area? I'm finding I like a very low shooting position. (For anyone going, this image is what I mean, I was sitting on the ground, camera height was maybe 3'.)

    I just walked around. I *think* the jousts were from stands.
    The biggest problems were telephone wires and microphones on some actors.

    For those who have been to the fair

    What kind of gear would make sense (focal length. tripod etc.) I am planning to go there tomorrow and any help is greatly appreciated.
