Today is Digital Photographer Philippines’ 7th Anniversary event – and its being held right now at 9th Avenue in Bonifacio High Street, Fort. Sony is celebrating that fact with a one day, one time deal on their Semi-Professional DSLT camera (Digital Single Lens Translucent) the SLT-A77. (Get it? Because the model number says 77 and DPP is celebrating its 7th year.) Anyway, the deal itself is quite impressive – buy one take one on any of the three possible combos for the A77 – body only for PHP 50k; with an 18-55 standard kit for PHP 60k; or with a 16-50 f2.8 lens kit for PHP 80k. Keep in mind that you’ll be getting two of the same kit so all of these bundles will include another A77 + any lens kit you bought with it. That’s quite a decent price if you think about it – getting a semi-professional APS-C camera body for 25k; with a lens kit for 30k; or with a constant f2.8 aperture lens for PHP 40k. Not bad, though you would be getting two.
Now personally, I’d like to take advantage of the Sony Buy-1 Take-1 promo for the Alpha A77, but somehow I don’t even know what I’d use one Semi-Professional DSLT for – let alone two. (I prefer compact body mirrorless cameras.) That and I don’t even like lugging full-body cameras anymore. Oh and I can barely cover the cost. But hey, anybody want to split two Sony SLT’s for the price of one?
Anyway, Sony sale or not, if you’re interested in being part of the festivities of DPP’s 7th Anniversary, just head on over to the Fort right now. Entrance is free and there should be lots to see – and potentially buy.
Try not to overspend though!
