If you blog about food you know what a headache it is to get good pictures.
I happen to make recipe videos and it is exceedingly hard to actually produce something that shows what you are doing accurately.
Food is a difficult material to work with. Textures and colours are important.
I’ve been doing the videos for quite some time now and lately I ‘ve been thinking about a new camera.
Enter SONY and their social media agency immediate future (follow them on twitter as well).
I approached immediate future (via twitter no less), explained exactly what I need and we talked about it. I told them that I need something simple, not professional as my videos are amateur videos. I needed something that would evidently show that I am creating and not a pro. However, it also needed to be apparent what the heck I’m cooking.
Aisling, Nora and Vivienne listened carefully, we chatted about it and today I received a bloggie MHS-PM5K.
I suggested mentioning SONY in every video but they refused. “Just use it”, they told me, “and let us know how it works our for you.”
After that I just had to leave a small note about it!
As always – and as those that have been following me for some years now – I will not hesitate to honestly say how the camera is working out.
Hold the line for more details!
Full disclosure: No money exchanged hands, no under the table deals. This is the whole of the story.
