If you could spend a week taking photos in any city in the world, which city would you choose, and why?

The first couple of cities that flashed right to mind would be Kyoto, Paris, New York, Egypt, and the list just goes on and on... But hey! why would I want to explore elsewhere when I have yet to fully explore my very own home country, Malaysia?

There are so many places that I have yet to set foot on, especially East Malaysia. The first place that I would love to visit would definitely be Kota Kinabalu.

I love scenery shots, especially those taken by the beach; or at sea. KK has just the perfect excuse for me to be snapping photos away. And with the Intelligent Sweep Panorama feature, what more could I ask for to get that perfect capture of the paradise? The Intelligent Sweep Panorama feature of Sony Cyber-shot HX5v could also come in handy while exploring the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park, as well as the rain forests in KK, which in turn will prove that the Sony Cyber-shot HX5v is an ideal camera even while trekking the natural terrains as it has Optical Steadyshot (active mode), which helps reduce camera shake blur. So, one need not have to stall while taking in the beauty of the surroundings and be left behind. And of course, who would forget about Mount Kinabalu? The idea of having a compact that can capture that perfect picture definitely beats the idea of having to carry a DSLR and tons of lenses and what-nots all the up the Mountain just for that perfect capture.

I could also be taking videos of Sunset/sunrise with the Sony Cyber-shot HX5v's AVCHD Full HD Movie recording feature, rather than just taking gazilion shots at it. I could even film the hike up Mount Kinabalu, or the rain forest trekking with this amazing feature and look back and relive every moment of it.

Oh, and did I mention that the Sony Cyber-shot HX5v has a unique mode called the Handheld Twilight mode? This mode makes capturing cleaner and sharper images in low light without the aid of a tripod of flash possible. So what better ways to take clearer photos without having to on the flash and still ruin a perfect night view where the city is lighted up beautifully? 

And you know how being an alien in a foreign land, one can easily get lost? Well fret not! Sony Cyber-shot HX5v actually has a Built-in GPS and Compass. No kidding! This camera is definitely a camera like no other. Other than serving the purpose of snapping that perfect moment, or putting it into a recording, I could even make sure I know my way around with the GPS and Compass feature! How great is that? No more fear of getting lost.

That said, this is only ONE of the many cities in Malaysia that I would love to explore. What about Kuching, Penang, KL, and lots more? So to say, the Sony Cyber-shot HX5v is definitely an ideal traveling companion while on vacations. It will also be my best companion while I explore my home country and share the beauty and uniqueness of it all with the world, while exploring other cities from other countries. =D!
