Sony A(alpha)350



"Congratulation, you are probably the first person in Malaysia to actually own an alpha 350" smiled one of Sony's promoter.
And I replied "Well, I did call you to see if the product is available, and you guys told me you have 5 units and it is available now!.."

Well, that almost summarize my story here.
Well, so, I was very much into getting a camera, a good camera, before going off oversea.
I was really into getting my very own Sony alpha 200, however, I also heard rumors of Sony Lunching a newer camera, the alpha 350 and 300, the following month.

Oh well, it is definitely worth the wait.

So, I waited, but, got a little impatient.
So, I emailed Sony, and guess what, on Monday, they told me the product was lunched recently, and gave me the price for the camera.

And I replied," Lunch recently, so, it is available at our local store?"

And, I was sented, KLCC, The Curve and Time's Square Sony telephone number and ask to purchase it there.

So, I actually took the liberty to call up KLCC, and, yes, the product was available, and, the lady on the telephone told me, there is 5 units available!

I smile putting down the phone, get a whole lump sum of grant from my dad, and headed to get one myself.

Went I arrived there, I was told the product was due to lunch 28 March!

How disappointing!!!

I was persistence, how on earth did they get me drag all the way to KLCC?
And come back without something!

I guess being relatively large has its advantages!

The fellow called up the product manager from don't know where, and said, "Product haven't lunch, but, we'll sell you the A350"

How un-disappointing!!
: )


I'm so happy with my new camera, however, there is still much to learn on how to take picture.

Too bad the camera can't take itself, I've fetch these picture of my new camera from a review camera web page.





So, my alpha journey begins here...
*The bag! Its not a hand bag!!*
*On top of a hill!!*
*Lalang?*
*Chicken?*
*Jovy the dog!*

Well, I was in dire need of a model, and what better way than to call up my bitch!
She just woke up, can you see the tahi mata there? :p
*Blur Jump!*

My sister, Hwei Wan, got home in time, and what better to celebrate then having a gravity-defying shoots!

And, a sneak preview of my new house!
Yes, I know, it looks like a freaking temple!!

Oh well, that all the noobz photo for now!

I wanna thank Sony for, well, making my day.
Sony really know how to keep a good reputation.

and,

I AM PROBABLY THE FIRST ALPHA 350 OWNER IN MALAYSIA!!


Hahaha!

* jump for joy *

:p
