Hi everyone! After years of waiting, finally I made a blog! I am so happy 🙂
Actually, I truly wanted to start my blog years ago, but I was always pessimistic. Well, pardon me, I’m a negative-oriented person and a perfectionist too! So at the time, I didn’t want to start a blog because I didn’t have a camera; I don’t want to bore my reader with just words, I feel like adding pictures will always make the blog post more attractive to read! Until last Thursday, which was my 23rd birthday, a generous man, whom I don’t know really well gave me this very expensive mirrorless camera, Sony Nex 5N!
To be honest, I’ve been obsessed with Sony mirrorless camera since 2011 (at that time, I was obsessed with Sony Nex-C3).
It's small, compact, fit for people who love traveling, the quality of the picture and all the settings are really close to DSLR, you can also choose what mode do you like; such as black and white, retro, toy cam, soft skin, etc. so you don't have to spend time editing with photoshop, its all in! The movie recorder is already Full HD and many more! This camera is just perfect with what I need, but this is not a cheap one. The price is around 6 millions rupiah and I just started working, so I had to save my money month by month.
Then in March 2012, Sony launched Nex 5N (which is better than Sony Nex-C3 and also more expensive) and I fell in love with it. I kept saving and the plan was to buy this camera by the end of this month, I have planned this for the whole of 2012! And just a week before my birthday, I even changed my obsession towards Sony Nex-5N, to Sony Nex-F5 (this one hasn’t launched yet).
‘Thanks’ to Sony that launched Sony Nex-F3 just a week before my birthday! I was hysterical reading the specifications of the camera, it has a LCD screen that flips to the front! It would be so much easier for me who likes solo travelling to take pictures of myself without having to guess if it’s going to look good or not.
This camera had me sad for days though, why?
Because Sony Nex-F3 is bigger and heavier than Sony Nex5N, the LCD is not a touch screen, and some of the specifications are technically worse than Sony Nex-5N. But it really had me at the the flip LCD screen, very tempting!
Anyway… When I was scrolling on Google search about Sony Nex-F3, somehow I found rumours that there will be Sony Nex-F5 which is exactly the same like Sony Nex-5N (or even better, they said it would be
built in with wi-fi!) and it has a flipping LCD screen as well. It must be so cool!
But the sad thing is, even though they said it will be launched this summer, but I’m not sure the same thing goes to here in Surabaya, Indonesia. It must be delayed for minimum 6 months *cry*
Well screw all of it, now I got Sony Nex 5N
FOR FREE! Thank God! I was like BEYOND happy! Even though I’m a bit scared about ‘why? why? and why?’ did this person gave it to me for free. Because this is not just a hundred thousand rupiahs price, it’s 7,8 millions rupiah! And I have nothing to give him in return.. I guess he’s just a very nice guy.
I pray that he will be blessed for the rest of his life! Amen to that!
So, yeah! This is when my story begins… I hope you all would enjoy what I wrote..
