The Photography Show took place at the NEC in Birmingham last weekend (September 18-21), and there were hundreds of products to buy, including: brand new cameras and lenses, discounted books, tripods, and film photography essentials.


Narrowing down our favourite items will be difficult but we'll give it a go anyway!


Let's take a look at 20 exciting items we saw at The Photography Show this year.

4. Ilford Pop Up Darkroom


I don't have room where I live to create my own darkroom, so this pop-up darkroom is a dream come true.

I am 100% buying this when it comes out.

I love making my own photo books, and with Storybooks by Talking Print, I can make my photo book a digital slideshow and include video, too!

11. Untamed Photography Tours Tailor-Made Private Tour: Amazon Rainforest


There were so many photography tours on offer from a variety of companies that are definitely worth looking at if you're interested in that.


I've chosen this Amazon Rainforest private tour for this list based on their website.


The website advises you on the photography equipment to bring and gives you a tour schedule.


I also love the idea that this is a private tour, that you can do with your significant other or with a group of friends.

12. Kosmo Foto Agent Shadow Film


I read online that there was a new roll of photographic film making it's debut at The Photography Show this year and I was so excited.


Being released with a special collectors box - would definitely buy just for that - this roll of film by Kosmo Foto is £5 a roll on their website.

13. Pinchbook™ Photo Books: Interchangeable Contents


Like I said before, I love photo books.


This Pinchbook Photo Book allows you to remove and add pages whenever you want, which is absolutely ideal for me.


The cover pages act as a sort of clip to hold the pages in place and you can remove, add, and arrange pages without ripping them out or getting messy.

14. Brinno Empower


My dad is really obsessed with time lapse stuff recently so I felt obligated to add something here.


This tiny but powerful camera has an extended battery life, lasting up to 99 days!


The Brinno empower is said to be the best time lapse camera for professionals.

18. Ilford 12 Days of Christmas 35mm Film Calendar


This amazing Christmas gift made it's debut at The Photography Show and was selling like hotcakes at £85 each.

Whether you're into nature, sci-fi, or just regular macro, Adaptalux has a studio light pack for you.

20. Click Props Tri-Flection


A must-have for studio photographers, the Tri-Flection by Click Props is 'without a doubt the most innovative studio lighting accessory to hit the market in years'.


With adjustable panels, photographers can angle the panel arms however they need and lock them into place.



I already can't wait to see what 2022 has to offer.
