UNBOXING MY NEW CAMERA - SONY DSC-WX500

I've always wanted a lightweight camera which fits into my bag whenever I attend events / go traveling. Yes my DSLR kicks butts in taking good pictures but unfortunately, it is too bulky. Lumix is a trusty friend too but it's still a little too big and heavy to be perfectly selfie-friendly.

Okay I know I might be a little too picky? #ormaybenot

When it comes to buying a camera, we want all-good-things-in-one. No? Well, I'm not sure what goes down in your criteria-checklist for a good camera, but here's what I would seek:

I emphasise on portability very much - the camera shouldn't feel like a bulk of mass in my hands, or in my bag. Anyway, I haven't been lifting weights enough to hold a camera still even after many shots taken. *just kidding* However, I'm not compromising in trading off the lightweight factor with a sh*tty quality. No, just no.

I want a camera that takes clear and vivid photos, but ideally, it should be equipped with the soft-skin mode, to...you know, yield better shots :p Oh, and a flipped-screen would be sweet! I can be so bad at blind-aiming the camera at my face, it usually takes a gazillion of attempts just to get one shot right :/

And I want a camera that has an awesome optical zoom lens; the kind that doesn't give me the depressing pixels I don't want to see on the photo preview - no matter how hard I hold down the zoom trigger. Sceneries can be quite some distance away from me okay? "Leave no regrets behind" they say; I really want to nail every scenery shot without a fail when I go travelling.

My list isn't finished, but the above are the few that first came to mind when I think of "good cameras", or I should say, the Jessica-kind-of-camera.

But hey, I've actually found the camera that excels in the aforementioned!!

What camera is it?! 

 SONY DSC-WX500 

This camera has NOT been officially launched in Malaysia yet, but I'm super lucky to be one of the firsts who got my hands on this camera!!!! Thank you Sony Malaysia!! 

We're gonna open up this bad boy today, and I'll also be writing a little review.

FIRST IMPRESSION
When I opened the box and first saw the camera, I was like: "OMG, IT'S SO SMALL AND CUTE!!!" It's so light too - it only weighs 236g with the battery - which is perfect for handling selfies!! Its size and weight even made me feel as if I'm holding a toy camera lolol. Besides, I also tried out the soft-skin mode. The photos turned out to be subtly natural, which is fantastic because as much as I would like some touch-ups on my complexion, I certainly don't want to look like a complete plastic-made Barbie doll fresh out of the factory.

Some shots taken with baby:

100% no edits!!! Not even photo-resizing!!

I'm sure I will be using this camera very often from now onwards, and I really can't wait to share more of its features with you in the next post!!

So stay tuned!! :D
