Slight error – It is Canon CPS in Holland who sent out the invite to CPS platinum members.

The meeting is in Roosendaal – actual location is to be sent if you RSVP

The other page of the invite is in Dutch and on , where this invite image first appeared (it has one of my editing/attribution marks ;-) )

There is also nothing connected with those 18MP specs (which I’d put as ‘unlikely’ BTW)

Comments are closed on this post, but you can carry on the conversation in the Photography Bay Forum.
