sony center

I was walking through MidValley on the weekend when I saw that the Sony Center over there had a contest for the Sony NEX-F3. This is exactly the very same camera that I used to take awesome photos like this in Germany:

This incidentally became my profile photo for Facebook, Twitter and my other social media sites. Heh.

I also took quite a few in Sibu, you can see the sheer quality of photos here:

sibu backyard

My backyard. It used to be bigger and filled with mango, rambutan and apple custard trees but it was chopped down and paved with concrete to make way for parking. There were five cars at one point before my dad sold one off, junked one and I drove mine to KL.

largest temple asia

The biggest temple complex in Asia or South-East Asia. I think it’s the former and it’s located in Sibu.

snail

One large garden snail. We eat this in Sibu. It’s considered a delicacy. I’m kidding, just took a photo of it to show the incredibly low noise in low light conditions. I snapped this after midnight when I went out back for a smoke.

I’m telling you, it sure was hard to return the review unit, I really fell in love with the dSLR quality images with easy shooting modes that the Sony NEX-F3 affords.

promoters

Thus, I tried to enter the contest. It’s quite easy, really. Just head into any of the 10 participating Sony Center outlets on a weekend (Saturday or Sunday) and go to the counter where the Sony NEX-F3 is.

You won’t have any trouble finding it – there are promoters there to help you with the process.

Basically, what you do is to take a photo of yourself using the 180 degree tilt function (a camwhore photo self-portrait in other words ;)) and they’ll help you upload it to the official contest website.

I did mine at the Sony NEX-F3 media launch with Kim, Rachel and Shah – didn’t win anything though – and asked the promoters if I can do this again at the Sony Center.

It turns out that you can – just take a self-portrait of yourself and upload it to The Ultimate F3 Photographer Contest. The contest requires you to upload shots taken with the camera at the Sony Center itself. However, you can also bring your own SD card and slot it into the Sony NEX-F3 if you want to keep the photos. :)

One of three Sony NEX-F3 units awaits you! I hope one of them is mine, this is really a nifty camera to bring traveling.

  1. How much is it?

    • The Sony NEX-F3 starts from RM 1,999. There’s 3 different colors and there are some packages with two kit lens. :)

      I think it’s an awesome camera for the price, the photos are great!

  2. what camera did you use to take the pic of the nex f3 in the last pic? looks good also.

    • I didn’t use a camera to take that shot – it’s done using my cell phone, I’m using a Sony Xperia S. :)

      I bought it for RM 1,899 without a contract, just got it from Sony Center too.

      Yeah, that’s why I went for the Sony Xperia S – the 12 MP camera is good and it can be tweaked to produce awesome photos, defocusing like a dSLR and with LED flash. :D

  3. How do they judge? Based on looks? Sigh…I wouldn’t stand a chance then… :(

    • i think they no so shallow gua

      • Nope, it’s not just based on looks, there are three different categories where you can win a camera each – 3 cameras as a grand prize to give away in all! :)

        There’s photogenic, stylish and creative. I went for creative. :D

    • Heh! Of course not, there’s actually 3 cameras as the grand prize with 3 different themes where you can win it:

      1. Most photogenic
      2. Most stylish
      3. Most creative

      I’ve seen some really creative shots been taken. You’ll stand a good chance, you can go for Most Stylish, I’ve seen you in a suit. :)

  4. an excellent little camera that can, the gf just bought one!

    • Yeah, it’s a great digicam, I would love to get one, but I just bought a Sony Xperia S so I can’t afford to get another digicam right now.

      I’m setting my eyes on this though, it’s quite affordable for the quality shot that it takes. I like it a lot when I was using it. :)

  5. Any idea how much is the camera? I wantedt to buy a new once since my old camera is spoiled.

    • Yeah, it starts from RM 1,999 with one lens. You can get more lenses if when the need arises or you can get a package that has two lenses – depending on your needs. :)

      I actually need a camera too, I just bought a Sony Xperia S and returned this review unit and I really liked it coz it lets me take awesome photos. :D

      I’ll recommend the Sony NEX-F3 – it’s a good cam. :D

  6. Need a portable camera badly! DSLR is too bulky for me… maybe I should try my luck! :D

    • Yeah, just drop by the participating Sony Centers (it’s at the link) during Saturday or Sunday and the promoters will be there to help you.

      Good luck Charmaine! :)
