Around May or June 2017, I got swayed by a friend to buy something from Amazon.com: a Sony super-zoom point-and-shoot camera that was on sale at the time. It was an impulse buy, but I’m such a sucker for photography gear that’s on sale. Plus, at the time I wasn’t too keen on lugging a heavy DSLR or the mirrorless camera with all those lenses when I cover Alden’s events. I gritted my teeth and bought it.
Said camera, whom I named Ama (because I bought it from Amazon; yes, I give names to my toys), has been my constant companion on gigs and events since then. It has never failed me.
Now, more than ever, I am so glad that I made that impulse buy. This palm-sized toy is a BEAST.
