About the event

As an exciting addition to our main Alpha Test Drive event, Sony will also take a focused version of our cameras and lens test drive experience to Canberra! For the first time at Canberra, Sony will travel with an unmatched range of current E-mount Alpha cameras and lenses, including the Alpha 7R IV, Alpha 9 II, FE 200-600mm G lens and FE 600mm F4 G Master lens.

Attendees will meet at Teds Camera store: 9 Petrie Plaza, Canberra, ACT, 2601. From there we will have a 10 minute welcome and briefing session hosted by one of Sony’s national Digital Imaging Product Specialists. After this, we will get on a bus and travel to a shooting location where you can loan from the range of cameras and lenses available. You’ll have plenty of shooting time to get the most out of the gear and with expert help for any tricky questions you may have. Once the session is over, we’ll get everyone back to the store and hand back the loaned gear. There will be a range of Sony Alpha shooting sessions to take part in at different times of the day during our time in Canberra so check the schedule below to find the session for you. 

At the end of the session there will be the opportunity to purchase Sony cameras and lenses through our retail partner.
