Wow, My BDM Friends Gave Me a Camera!

Topic: Living it Up 12 years, 6 months ago

To start this story off, a bit of history: Since I went back to Hong Kong in July 2005, I’ve been the proud owner of a Casio Exilim EX-Z750 camera. I loved the camera to death, having taken over 8 000 photos and videos with it to date and having played a part in convincing two of my friends and my cousin to all buy the same camera.

Unfortunately, the camera’s lens decided to stuff up in September last year, just outside of the warranty period. Contrary to what some believe, I always looked after my camera and have never dropped or damaged it — I have no idea what caused it to break. I have since been without a camera because the cost of fixing it would have been the same as the cost of a new one. All in all, stressful.

Luckily, for my recent 22nd birthday, Lucy and my Digital Media friends together bought me a new camera — the Casio Exilim EX-Z1000 — and they surprised me with it on Friday night while we were out for dinner and drinks in Newtown! I was ecstatic, as I had totally not expected something like that… I still can’t believe they managed to organise it without me ever being suspicious, considering the number of camera-related conversations I’ve had recently! ;)

It was the perfect solution to my current photography woes, and what better solution than to get a camera from my friends that I could use all the time and remember where it came from? Fittingly, the first few photos were all photos of our group (except for Adz, Tim and Albert who couldn’t make it):

Thank you so much guys, you’re all the best and I love you all! I was incredibly happy on the night and even on Sunday morning when I was at Lucy’s place to pick up the camera, I still hadn’t gotten over it yet. :D

And I wish the story could happily end here…

(Update: Oops, I forgot to mention Adz as well, who was also part of this! :oops: )

    Shame they’ve lost the manual control feature. :( But I guess you can at least take photos again! And yay I won’t be the only one taking photos now! hehehehe…
