National Stores, the UAE distributor for Canon Middle East has opened its first concept pro shop in Dubai at Al Ghazal Mall on Al Diyafah Street.

The shop will cater for professional photographers and aspiring photography enthusiasts and will showcase DSLR cameras, lenses and accessories. The concept store will also feature a range of Canon DSC, DVC and IJ printers.

"The continued growth of Dubai as a business, media and entertainment hub has spawned numerous businesses and activities that require the services of professional photographers. This is a growing community, and professional photographers are known to be very passionate about their work and their cameras. We are here to respond to this growing community, with a specialized shop that will showcase Canon's DSLR expertise and market-leading products to provide everything they need," said Ateeq Shamsi, sales and marketing director, National Stores.

 All showroom staff have been specifically trained to help professional photographers with their needs, including providing after-sales services.

 "Over the years, Canon Middle East has been working closely with the professional photographers' community, holding various workshops and competitions. This pro shop geared to their needs is another initiative that hopes to give them a dedicated place where they can find the tools and products that they need in their work," said Canon Middle East managing director Anurag Agrawal.

 The Canon Pro Shop will be open from 10 AM to 10 PM seven days a week.

Great news! However, the price of Canon products in the UAE is more than 25 - 30% than the US market. I think the main reason is monopoly; there is no price competition in the open market. Canon can increase their market share by lowering their prices and conducting free workshops for canon users and photo enthusiasts. Providing the service of a Canon specialist in case of any technical qeries from the photographers will be an added bonus.
