The SEL30M35 is retailing for S$399 in Singapore but I learned that it is much cheaper in Japan.
Despite it being a successor, the megapixel count and optical zoom range remains the same: 20.1MP and 2.9x respectively.
The Sony Walkman NWZ-A15 is the world’s smallest and lightest Hi-Res Audio digital music player. It was launched in Singapore in October 2014 and is currently retailing for S$299.
With the Sony Walkman NWZ-A15, Sony aims to reproduce music just as artists truly intended, by using Sony’s acoustic engineering technologies.
I always wanted a GoPro camera, but I can’t justify spending so much money on a extreme-action video camera because I might not use it often.
I saw the Sony HDRAS20 Action Video Camera and Sony 16GB Class 10 Micro SDHC R40 Memory Card being sold as a bundle on Amazon for US$97 (S$128). It is not Amazon’s Gold Box Deal of the Day but rather sort of a pre-black Friday deal. I bought it because it was a very good deal despite it does not ship to Singapore directly.
The newly launched Sony CP-B20 USB Portable Charger is a 20,000mAh power bank that comes with four USB ports and that allows you to charge four devices at a time!
It is capable of outputting 6.9A in total and that means you can charge three iPads or four mobile phones at one go!
The much anticipated Sony Cyber-shot RX100 III will be available in Singapore from June 2014 for S$1,199. It is not really a successor to the popular Sony Cyber-shot RX100 II because the RX100 II will still be on sale targeting a different audience because of the cheaper, S$899, price point.
For the RX100 III, Sony updated the lens to ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* 24-70mm F1.8-2.8, added a retractable OLED Tru-Finder aka Electronic viewfinder (EVF) and changed the LCD so that it can be tilted 180° to take selfie photos.
Sony recently opened its largest flagship store in Southeast Asia at 313@Somerset #02-28 to 37 (directly opposite Starbucks). It occupies 9,902 square feet (920sqm) of floor area and its opening hours are from 10am to 10pm daily.
As a Sony member, we are given S$50 to spend at that store and surprisingly when I went there, there is nothing interesting for me to buy. Instead it is my mom who used the voucher and bought the Sony Digital Voice Recorder – ICD-UX543F for S$189 so that she can record meeting minutes.
HopShopGo received the package on the 18th January 2014 with a chargeable weight of 3KG, but HopShopGo offers a repack option for a slight fee and hence it cuts down the chargeable weight to just 1KG! So shipping just cost me US$20.32 (S$26). I am a HopShopGo Prime Member, so your discount may varies!
