Best Online Retailer 2009!

Gear of the Year Awards 2009

Yesterday saw the 24th annual Gear of the Year Awards in the prestigious Century Club in London's Soho, so the various dignitaries from Wex Photographic got doled up in their finest and headed down to the Awards Ceremony. As the time approached for the awards to be announced, everyone in the office sat with all their fingers and toes crossed that we would hold on to our title of Best Online Retailer... And we did! At around 2.30pm we got the call to say that Wex Photographic had been crowned Best Online Retailer 2009 - a title we are very proud of, not least because we have won it for the last 8 years in a row.

I got this bag to fit my Canon 40D with kit lens, plus a 50mm prime and a 430EXII flash. It just about fit them all with just a little bit of room to spare for a remote trigger, a usb cable and a couple of filters/memory cards. It's just the right size for my needs. The waterproof cover is definitely a brilliant idea as I've used it more than once to keep everything dry.h256, Wex Photographic customer
