The Photography Show 2018

Saturday 17th – Tuesday 20th March, 2018

The NEC, Birmingham

The UK’s biggest photography show is fast approaching and, as always, we’ve got lots going on at the Fujifilm stand (D61) and on the Live Talk Stages. To help you plan ahead and make the most out of your visit, we’ve detailed everything you need to know about what Fujifilm will be up to.

With a range of inspiring talks from our X-Photographers, a Quick Maintenance Service for X Series and GFX owners, gallery space displaying stunning images shot on Fujifilm and the opportunity to shoot with our latest Fujifilm kit, make sure you join in the fun. We are looking forward to saying ‘hello’ to you!


Want to get hands-on with our latest kit, including the newest camera in the X Series range, the FUJIFILM X-H1, plus the highly anticipated FUJINON MKX cine lenses due out later in 2018? Visit our Touch & Try station on stand D61 to test out the latest line-up! Our product specialists will be on hand to give you a product demonstration, tell you everything you need to know and answer all of your questions.


For FUJIFILM X Series and GFX system owners, we will be providing a complimentary Quick Maintenance Service on our stand for the duration of The Photography Show. Our skilled technicians will be on hand to give your kit a little spring clean, including a sensor clean (sensor surface only), full check & test and ensure your product has the latest firmware installed. They will be able to advise you on whether any additional repair work is required, which will need to be booked in for a repair with our service centre after the event, and may incur repair charges depending on warranty.

Come and visit us on stand D61 to book your kit in for this Quick Maintenance Service! 


Over the four days, 12 different photographers will share their experiences using Fujifilm kit, covering a wide range of themes including landscape, wedding, portrait, fashion, lifestyle, travel and wildlife. Take a look at where and when these talks will be taking place below.
