Happy Sars gets an S100!

Obviously, you already know what I'll be talking about in this post. Yes, after how many years and having other camera brands, I've finally come back to Canon - the first brand I've ever owned.

I lost my Panasonic Lumix FX35, the one that my friend Dev gave me, when I sang at an event at Nuvali in Sta. Rosa, Laguna back in March. I was heartbroken as it had documented all the happenings in my life for the past couple of years. Then the company I'm working for at daytime provided me with a camera I requested for taking vides of the bands - a Panasonic Lumix LX5. But I can't always bring the camera with me as it's bulky and I'd be held responsible if I damage or lose it.

So after getting my talent fee from my Quaker Oats commercial, I spent some of them for the things I need for my gigs and saved some moolah to buy me a new camera. Originally, I was torn between Nikon P300/P310 and Canon S100. But seeing the test videos of both cameras, I knew that Canon Powershot S100 would be perfect for a video buff like me. So yesterday, we went to Hidalgo (in downtown Quaipo, Manila) to canvass for the prices there. But I found out that the prices aren't way cheaper than the prices in the malls. So I wanted to just buy online instead and I tweeted about it.

Guess what?!! One of my followers and a great friend on Twitter, @sofiewithlove, happens to have a husband who has an online shop for cameras and gadgets. She saw my tweet and offered me good price of 17,000 pesos compared to 23,000-24,000 pesos in Hidalgo. Yes, warranty is only applicable in their shop, but that's okay.

The transaction was fast. I spoke to Sofie's husband, Ronald, while I was at a costume fitting for another big project, at around 5PM. He met up with my hubby Marl at around 6:30PM and voila! Transaction's done! I will soon post about their online shop here on my blog soon. Big thanks to Sofie and Ronald for making me "100% Happy Sars" with my S100!

Expect the some new photos and videos to be posted soon. Time to catch up on what I have missed. I still have my Nikon D7000, which I don't bring around, and Panasonic Lumix LX5 for work.

Hmmm... I shall call my new baby, Sars100! :-)
