There are tons more reviews posted if you google!
About couple of months ago I decided that it's time to buy a new camera. So I went on a research what camera should I get.. Flip screen is absolute MUST. Bottom line, the Casio ZR series was what I am aiming for (budget and feature-wise, it's a entry type digicam)and so I started saving up..
And just so people know..... Casio as a camera brand is basically UNHEARD of here in Philippines.. In short, it was hell trying to find a store that carries Casio cameras. Even online gadget shops steered clear of this brand for what reason I D K
I don't get it at all why Casio cameras are so elusive in Manila when they're the bee's knees right now across Asia~!!
Anyway, I was really having a hard time looking for a Casio ZR1200, I thought maybe I could just buy when we go to Malaysia this June.. But last minute I found a store here that carries ZR1200 for 16k php, even tho slightly more expensive compared to other countries..
So fast forward this Aug I was def ready to buy it and so I went to the store but they said it was already SOLD OUT.. Seriously I was d e s p e r a t e... I have been patient enough to wait for months.. But alas I couldn't find anywhere else and the shop vaguely telling me that it'll take sometime or never to restock the model.
I was a desolate nomad..
Nothing like a shoppingholic who couldn't buy what she's saved up for..
But giving up is not an option so I scoured the internet where to locally buy this camera.. I could've used eBay, or Lazada, or whatever.. But all of them requires that I wait.. and God knows I've had enough wait.
Then one fateful day (lol)
I saw someone on OLX.ph selling his old TR150!!! WTF I panicked and searched for him on FB lol I immedietly found him and harassed him to sell the cam only to me lol cuz I was so afraid of competition haha. In the end yea I was finally able to buy TR150 instead of ZR1200 for a really cheap price too cheaper than zr1200 actually..! That is something rare.. And Im very happy!
Casio TR series has long announced their more improved versions: TR15 and TR35. And as for the ZR series, a new one has also came out around this year, the ZR1500.
...But I can't help to notice, I'm really happy with TR150 lol it's like I'm rejoicing for buying iPhone3gs when iPhone5s and 5c is out LOLOL. =.= that's how hard it is to find this camera here.
