I went to bed at around 2am last night, so I was fully expecting to be getting up really late, especially since we have another public holiday today 😌
But no, my body had a different idea. And so did Kitty 🙄 She was hungry at around 6:45am and she let me know it 😒 I decided to get up and feed her, and then go back to sleep straight afterwards. But this time, my mind had a different idea. It wanted to wake up and do things. WTH, man. C’mon, mind and body. Just work together for me, will ya?!? 😩
So I watched a few YouTube videos on different cameras that may suit my needs. As I’ve mentioned before, my top priorities are portability, convenience and ease of use. Not just as a camera but also for vlogging. I want something that’s good enough to do both because I just want to carry one thing. I don’t need the fanciest gadget out there or the sharpest photos. I just need something that will do a pretty good job.
So after watching a bajillion videos on YouTube, I narrowed it down to two Sony point-and-shoot cameras: the ZV-1 or the RX100 VII. As N pointed out, the video capabilities is what I’m really focussed on, and that’s exactly what the ZV-1 does: it is primarily for vlogging. Taking photos is secondary, although its camera is still pretty good for a point and shoot. I’m going to watch a few more videos on the ZV-1, but I think I’ve pretty much made up my mind.
So we went to Causeway Bay (CWB) today to go to the Sony store there to check these cameras out. Unfortunately, though, we discovered that the protesters were also over in CWB today 😔 So the police had cordoned off the main road going through the area, clearly trying to drive people out of the area and discouraging people from loitering around.
And the Sony store is on this main road. Needless to say, they had already closed by the time we managed to get there. I was terribly disappointed as I really wanted to see their cameras today 😔
We decided not to check out the Wan Chai Computer Centre, as it too sits on the main road that the police have cordoned off, so they have probably shut their doors for the rest of the day too 😔
I was so looking forward to checking out my potential new camera, but I guess I just have to wait until the weekend. Hopefully the protesters don’t target CWB again on the weekend, and we can safely head over to the Sony store and hopefully, maybe, buy a camera 🤞
I should’ve researched where the protests were going to be today. I should’ve anticipated it, at least, given the significance of the date and the introduction of the new security law. And that it’s a public holiday today. Sighhh… I was too busy doing my research on cameras! 📸 😂
