What a weekend. Having the opportunity to meet and photograph David Hasselhoff, Billy Dee Williams, Dolph Lundgren, and a brief appearance by William Shatner. And, to top it all off, I got to play with the new Panasonic Lumix G9 which comes out next month.
Many thanks to Roy for letting me come along. You can check out some of his work and follow his adventures over on Facebook!https://www.facebook.com/th...
The Piccadilly Symphony Orchestra were performing throughout both days of the show covering some of the most iconic movie themes ever written. Check them out on Facebook...https://www.facebook.com/Pi...
I didn't play much with the G9, but I had a good chat with Roy who did and has been using it for a couple of weeks. Overall, it seems like Panasonic have really got things together with this camera. Definitely aimed a lot more at photographers than the GH5.

The event itself was a blast. I got to make a LOT of new friends at various Garrisons and Legions from around the country. Connected with one I'd only known online for about the past 6 or 7 years and had never met before.
Dolph Lundgren's talk was fascinating and quite funny. I wish I could've shot some video of that, but I can understand why they don't allow it.
There were many other big names at the event that I didn't have the opportunity to photograph. Ernie Hudson (Winston from Ghostbusters) was there, as was Zach Galligan (Billy from Gremlins), and a few original and new Star Wars cast members.
Such a wonderful time. Thank you, Roy for the invitation to tag along!
