Cam­eras Galore at CEX 2013

Shut­ter­bugs flock to Cam­era and Elec­tron­ics Expo (CEX) 2013

HWM (Malaysia) - - APERTURE -

The Cam­era and Elec­tron­ics Expo (CEX) is an an­nual event that’s held to bring pho­tog­ra­phy lovers a chance to pur­chase more cam­era gear at af­ford­able prices. This year, the event was held once again at the Viva Home Mall in Cheras over the course of three days, from 2 to 4, Au­gust. HWM was proud to be part of the event, as the of­fi­cial me­dia. Not only were we there to cover the event, we had the op­por­tu­nity to sell copies of our an­nual pho­tog­ra­phy Mega guide, which is a com­pre­hen­sive guide for bud­ding pho­tog­ra­phers to learn ev­ery­thing about pho­tog­ra­phy.

Apart from the chance to pur­chase more cam­era-re­lated equip­ment, CEX 2013 also served as a means for bud­ding pho­tog­ra­phers to learn more about this pro­fes­sion as there were many es­tab­lished lo­cal pho­tog­ra­phers that gave talks there. Among the pho­tog­ra­phers present at CEX 2013 were Ming Thein, Brian Chong, Justin Lai, Sai­ful Nang, Che’ Ah­mad Azhar, Crys­tal Ng and Pa­trick Low.

The talks were open to the pub­lic and at­ten­dance was free-of-charge. At­ten­dees that had the op­por­tu­nity to sit through the talks were also given the chance to put their new found knowl­edge to use be­cause there was a Miss Scuba Malaysia 2013 pho­tog­ra­phy con­test held dur­ing the event. At the event, at­ten­dees were given the chance to take pho­tos of 12 fi­nal­ists from the pageant and stood a chance to win at­trac­tive prizes from a prize pool worth RM3,000 in to­tal.

For the Miss Scuba Malaysia 2013 pho­tog­ra­phy con­test, the first prize win­ner walked away with RM1,500, while the first run­ner-up and sec­ond run­ner-up won RM1,000 and RM500, re­spec­tively. Seven lucky win­ners also walked away with 15” Think Tank bags each.

In ad­di­tion, on the fi­nal day of CEX 2013, a cat­walk event was or­ga­nized where at­ten­dees were given the chance to pho­to­graph all the beau­ti­ful booth pro­mot­ers from the var­i­ous ex­hibitors. Dur­ing this cat­walk event, two very spe­cial ladies made a guest ap­pear­ance, Ms. Stilly Goh, Miss GT Queen Malaysia 2013 and Ms. Ade­line Tan, the first run­ner up for Miss GT Queen Malaysia 2013.

Dur­ing CEX 2013, there were many ex­hibitors that set up shop. Whether you were look­ing for full cam­era kits or just ac­ces­sories, the many shops def­i­nitely catered to the needs and wants of all the at­ten­dees. The fol­low­ing are some of the more no­table booths.

For those ea­ger to see some of the beau­ti­ful booth pro­mot­ers, we man­aged to get a cou­ple of shots for you.
