Canon CPS Roadshow at CVP HQ Studley

On Tuesday 22nd September the Canon CPS Roadshow officially started with the first stop being CVP HQ in Studley!

Firstly however I feel the need to mention the enormous amount of time spent setting up for the event, when I arrived on the Monday at 8.30am (slightly late for work I must confess, I should be in for 8am oops!) there was an enormous amount of people running in and out of the building carrying numerous strangely shaped objects.. This continued right until 8pm, at this point we had received every single delivery lorry in the west-midlands, I am sure of this!

Sony’s PMW-200 – a worthy successor to the much-loved EX1?
