Not to mention up to $50 worth of instantly redeemable vouchers and a 65” 4K TV to be won, which will make your camera purchase more worth it.
We’ve scoured the sales catalogue and are letting you in on some of the best powerful tools worth keeping an eye out for.
Mirrorless cameras for aspiring beginners & pros
Lugging a camera around just to capture the perfect sunset may seem like a hassle, but not when you have the Sony A7C.
Sony A7C (body only) – $2,499
A full-frame mirrorless camera with a back-illuminated sensor, the A7C’s real-time autofocus (AF) and 4K recording let even beginners capture high-level stills and videos.
These pro features are packed in a compact and lightweight body that weighs just 424g, so you can slip it into your tote after you’ve snapped all the aesthetic photos for your feed.
No need to worry about running out of batteries as you’ll get an additional FZ100 battery worth $149 with your purchase.
Those who think you’ve had enough practice can aim for the Sony A7R III, which is great for high-resolution photography with its pro-class operability and reliable performance.
Sony A7RIII (body only)- $3,099 (U.P. $4,699)
The substantial $1,600 cashback means you only have to pay $3,099 for the camera body.
Not only will you be able to take stunning portraits, you can also capture Singapore’s beautiful urban architecture that has been featured in Hollywood movies and TV series.
Pocket camera for high-quality casual videos
If you’d prefer to start off smaller, the user-friendly Sony ZV-1 requires neither experience nor tricky setups to capture amazing videos.

The best-in-class stabilisation and noiseless audio recording mean crisp and clear videos, even when you’re recording in a windy, outdoor environment, or can’t seem to steady your shaky hands.
The latest firmware update will let you live-stream with the supplied USB cable, so you can easily hop on the Facebook “Live” bandwagon.
No need to be a pro videographer as the easy-to-use features of the ZV-1 allow you to shoot high-quality videos and casual clips effortlessly.
Compact camera for pro photographers & vloggers
While the ZV-1 is great for beginners, pro vloggers may still need more in a similarly small package.
Along comes the RX100VII, which boasts an impressive 8.3x zoom, 4K recording, a mic input, and superior speed performance for both stills and movies.

With all the features in 1 sturdy to-go package, you will never miss capturing any important moment, be it in photos or videos.
Lenses that’ll extend your camera range
A basic kit may get you the HD photos and videos, but full-frame lenses are the magic ingredient you’ll need to achieve various artistic shots.
The Distagon T* FE 35mm F1.4 ZA lens with an f/1.4 aperture, for instance, is all you need to get a natural bokeh effect. This will certainly make your subject stand out against a dreamy and hazy backdrop.
