December Speaker Night about McBain Camera and Sigma

Sigma rep

On Wednesday December 10 2014, the St. Albert photography club hosted two guest speakers.

Rene Rodrigue, the manager from McBain Camera in St. Albert came to speak to the club about offers made exclusively to members of the club. This includes discounts on lens and accessories. To receive the discount, members need to present a valid membership card when purchasing their items. Inquiries detailing the exact discount can be made by contacting Rene.


The second speaker was Doug French. Doug is a product distributer from Sigma. He spoke to the club about some significant advances that Sigma has made in their equipment in the last few years including increased resolution quality and improved dust and splash resistance. Doug presented information on several new lenses that sigma offers and different features of each lens. He also spoke about filters and tripods & monopods that double as walking sticks, and camera slings. One interesting piece of technology that Sigma has is a USB dock. What this piece of equipment allows you to is if you upgrade your camera body, your digital lenses will remain compatible with your new body. Sigma is the only company that offers this type of technology. More information on their equipment can be found on their website.
