Cyber-shot QX100 and QX10, NEX-5T, A3000, 4K Camcorder,Action Cam, MV1 Music Video Recorder
On 17 Sep 2013, I've attended the launch of SONY Malaysia 2013 Camera Launch Event as I always wanna know the new technology especially when it is related to the smart cameras =D Among all new camera revealed at the event, I am most interested on QX 100 and QX10, the Action Camera with waterproof case and of course the SONY NEX-5T smart camera with WiFi and NFC enabled function. I am already immune to DSLR because the heavy weight on it makes me tends to go for smart camera nowadays.

Do you know when you cross your leg you will look much slimmer? *modeling tips*

Basically what Lisa Surihani shared is on how she capture beautiful photos by simply press on the shutter button

Zizan Razak @ Zizan Raja Lawak sharing his experience using Sony NEX camera as well

Check out the star trail photo Zizan manage to snap using his Sony cam =)

Zizan Raja Lawak is truly humor without forgetting to make us laugh during the sharing session haha
Of course, must introduce the pretty emcee Julie Woon

Now it's time to let the SONY Professional to introduce all the new Sony cameras

First one the new Sony Action Camera HDR-AS30V
The main features of this SONY Action Camera HDR-AS30V is that you can shoot smooth, blur-free Full HD video and still photos with Exmor R CMOS sensor and wide-angle lens with Steady Shot. Besides that you can do easy sharing with the Wi-Fi and NFC One-touch remote. You can always check your shots and control "hands-off" recording using their wristwatch-style Live-View Remote (RM-LVR1). Can it beat GoPro? I am not sure yet but surely something good to be on the market. When there's competitors, there is improvement for both products and price.

Sony Action Cam HDR-AS30V
One thing that I like about Sony Action Cam is their Universal Head Mount Kit (BLT-UHM1) as it can be attached to headband, goggles or helmet. Since it is waterproof as well, it is good for snorkeling, diving, hiking, cycling, skiing and snowboarding.

The SONY Action Cam HDR-AS30v will be available from October 2013 and price is still unknown.

SONY 4K Camcorder 
 All right, talking about this Sony 4K Handycam FDR-AX1, it definitely looks good on a muscular guy. This little monster can capture 4K content (3840x2160) and HD movies in the XAVC S format at 60 fps data stream. Since the video file size will be large, FDR-AX1 camcorder uses an XQD media card (N series QN-N32/QN-N64 and S series QN- S32E/QN-S64E) for smooth, high speed reading and writing of 4K video. The Handycam FDR-AX1 will be available in Malaysia from November 2013. VEGAS PRO 12 EDIT software and a 32GB XQD media card is included as free offer in the box.

For me, I still prefer lighter weight DSLR that can change lens for my desired images and video footage, however, I guess this 4K Handycam Sony G Lens (aperture range F1.6 - F3.4) will be doing very well in night videoshoot too. If you wanna look professional and muscular, get this handycam haha

Sony HDR-MV1 Music Video Recorder, Sony 4K Handycam FDR-AX1 and Sony RX series compact cam
When all the models came out, everyone got a gadget on their hands but I wonder why SONY Music Video Recorder (HDR-MV1) wasn't holding by the model. Anyway the Music Video Recorder is for you to shoot and share every performance with crisp, punchy pictures and studio-quality sound to match. It has the 120-degree X-Y stereo microphone guaranteeing superb depth and separation. Only musician will able to know how good it is on capturing the sound and video footage. This Music Video Recorder will be available in December 2013.

The model showcasing Sony Lens-Style Camera QX100/QX10

Sony Lens-Style Camera QX100/QX10
 Sony Lens-Style Camera QX100 and QX10 is the new kind of smart camera that can improve yourdigital photographs shot on smartphones. You can now shoot fabulous photos and HD video using your phone. Definitely a great upgrade for your smartphone and it is easily connected vis WiFi and the latest version of Sony's PlayMemories Mobile Application. Linkage is simple for NFC smartphone owners too.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-QX10 weighing just 105g (with battery and memory card) is equipped with an 18.2 effective megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor with high quality Sony G Lens. Together with a powerful 10x optical zoom range, this camera is great for fun-filled event like concert and distance landmarks. The Built-in Optical SteadyShot combats camera shake, keeping handheld pictures and videos steady and blur-free, even in low-light conditions.

Sony Cyber-shot QX100
The Cyber-shot DSC-QX100 features a large 1.0-type Exmor R CMOS sensor with 20.2 effective megapixels, giving you ultra-low noise images even indoor or at dusk. The DSC-QX100 also teamed with a wide-aperture Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T lens with 3.6x optical zoom with Optical SteadyShot giving stable photos too.

QX10 or QX100. Which one is better?
So, QX10 or QX100 is better?? If you like to zoom from far of course QX10 is better with its 10x zoom lens. But if for low light photography, QX100 can do better with its F1.8  Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T lens. You can use manual focus on QX100 too, more flexible control on what to focus. If compare with weight, QX10 (105g) weight lighter than QX100 (179g). Both gadget can be controlled by detached it from the mobile but make sure you are in the coverage or else the LiveView will look laggy. I wonder if this will evolve become a spy cam in future.

This new Cyber-shot DSC-QX100 and DSC-QX10 will be available in Malaysia from October 2013 onwards.

Sony Alpha A3000 DSMR Camera
Sony Alpha A3000 DSLR is a camera with 20.1 effective megapixels for quality pictures and Full HD video. The frame scenes accurately through the electronic Tru-Finder. You can pick from 18 interchangeable E-mount lenses for limitless creative possibilities. It has 25 focus points and now selling at RM1,299 only at authorized Sony outlets nationwide.

SONY NEX-5T Smartcamera
I personally looking for light weight smart camera that can snap DSLR quality photos and of course with WiFi and NFC sharing features. It seems like Sony NEX-5T is a very suitable camera for people nowadays as it is not that heavy when compared to DSLR. Most importantly it has flippable screen that we all like for selfie and vlog. Youngster (including me) will love it a lot to take selfie and record videos.

Sony NEX-5T is equipped with APS-C sensor with 16.1 effective megapixels. The Advanced Fast Hybrid AFcombines phase-detection autofocus to track fast-moving subjects with contrast-detection AF for absolute precision. It's definitely a winning combination that delivers speedy, accurate focusing in any scene and counter back the long start-up time. (If for DSLR we can switch on the camera within split second, for smart cam like this it require a few seconds to switch on/off)

Interesting features for Sony NEX-5T
 Most importanly, Sony NEX-5T has both WiFi and NFC sharing capabilities. We can now share high quality photo directly to smartphone and then upload to your favourite social network channel. I will definitely use this to share photos on my Facebook and Instagram. You can remote control this camera with the PlayMemories Camera Apps too, just that I hope the apps can be smarter by letting us touching on the smartphone's screen to refocus or even record video. That would be fun =)

The only thing that I worry about is the battery life for whole day photoshoot when we always share using WiFi and NFC. These function will definitely consume battery power at the speed of light. But yeah, you can always prepare spare batteries to enjoy all the smart function of Sony NEX-5T.
