(www.delkin.com), are co-sponsoring the San Diego Photo Expo (http://www.sdphotoexpo.com) Saturday and Sunday, December 3rd and the 4th, at the Del Mar Fairgrounds' Mission Tower. Admission is free. This exciting new event brings free seminars on topics of interest for digital photography newcomers to seasoned professionals from the industry's top professionals.

Experts from Canon, Konica-Minolta, Nikon and more will be on hand to answer any questions. There will also be free raffles for attendees for camera and photography equipment and free photos with Santa for the kids, too! The San Diego Photo Expo will be the place to find great holiday gifts for all photo buffs. Finally, the first 200 people through the door each day will receive a free DVD on the basics of digital photography.

George's Camera & Video Exchange owner and operator David Rivera said, "San Diego County's growing digital photographer population has clamored for a Photo Expo for years. Photo shows have thrived for decades in other parts of the USA, and it's high time someone produced one here. Now George's and our co-sponsor, local digital camera accessory manufacturer Delkin Devices, have committed to bringing San Diego more than just great deals on the best in digital photography equipment. The first annual San Diego Photo expo will be a full-blown digital photography festival, with attractions for everyone."

Internationally recognized photographers such as Monte Zucker, Gil Smith and Bambi Cantrell will share their professional and artistic expertise at the free lectures and workshops. Topics will range from wedding to portrait photography as well as basic digital photography. There will be seminars from the producer of the popular Jumpstart Guides that will get the newcomer started. World renowned Photoshop expert Eddie Tapp will demonstrate how software can help even the newest digital photographer produce work like the pros.

Canon, Nikon, Konica-Minolta, Tamron, Nik Multimedia, Quantum, Wescott, Photogenic, Delkin and more will be represented with a full range of products, special prices, and factory experts on hand to answer questions. There will be a wide range of cameras and other photographic equipment for sale at great prices along with no sales tax on most items.

There is a free raffle for all attendees for a digital SLR camera, memory cards, lenses, and more. The top prize is Nikon's hot new D50 Digital SLR camera with an 18-55 mm lens valued at $1100.00. Other Photo Expo prizes include Delkin's best selling DVD BurnAway and eFilm Pro memory cards, other photography equipment and gift certificates to George's Camera. The San Diego Photo Expo also welcomes the kids to the event with a free 4 x 6 picture with Santa.

George's Camera and Delkin Devices have been serving San Diego for decades; George's since 1965 and Delkin since 1985. They are tapping all the expertise, contacts and resources they've accumulated and are pulling out all the stops to ensure the San Diego Photo Expo is fully comparable to those held anywhere, including Los Angeles and New York City. Already the Expo is set to offer far more photography value than San Diego has ever seen before, with so much going on, no single camera store can hold it all.

The San Diego Photo Expo's huge selection of cameras and must-have accessories with eye-popping prices are enticing enough. The Expo's decision to pay the sales tax on most purchases is the clincher for the savvy shopper. There will be live studio shots, free seminars, free raffles, free scrapbooking demonstrations, plus the Photo Guys recording their internet radio show on location. Finally, the first 200 people through the door each day will receive a free DVD on the basics of digital photography.

The San Diego Photo Expo will be going on December 3rd (Saturday) & 4th (Sunday) at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in the Mission Towers Building. The Photo Expo will be open to the public from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm on Saturday and 9:00 am to 4:00 pm on Sunday. Admission to the Photo Expo is free and includes the seminars from the top professional photographers. There will be food and drinks for sale onsite.
