Promotion works. Atleast it seems like it works on me. Not that I would admit it, ofcourse, but here you have it – a post in a travel blog that features a new Samsung camera. I’d call that successful advertising.
Walking around the wonderful 798 arts district in Beijing I saw a grand launch event with lots of good looking people coming in and out, so I figured I must go in and have a look. To my surprise, not only was I not denied entrance but they seemed pretty happy to let me in once they saw the size of the camera I was holding. At some point someone asked whether I was a professional photographer visiting Beijing. "Oh my", I remember thinking, "Wouldn’t that be something if I were?".
So why write about it? Since the two readers who follow this blog are probably tired of photos of beaches and temples, I thought I would use any excuse I can to post photos of something a bit more spicy, and that event did offer a few attractions worth looking at.
That was one of my favorites. Nice, don’t you think?
I’m talking about the camera, ofcourse. Though I must admit that the background was not bad either.
But I think the highlight of the event, as much as I was really able to focus on the cameras, was the new concept Samsung was launching about an Android based super-zoom camera. Without doubt, that’s exactly what I need in a camera. Instead of having a mobile with a horrible camera, I want a decent pocket camera that has mobile capabilities, runs Android and connects to 3g/4g data…
In case you’re wondering what camera I’m referring to, it’s the Samsung Galaxy Camera.
But, cameras and models aside, the most interesting thing in an event like this is people watching…
I need to get me one of those Galaxy cameras to play with.
