Introducing Sony Imaging PRO Support

Sony Imaging just Launched their PRO Support program

Just received a FedEx box in the mail the containing a fancy black folder-box with the brand new Sony Imaging PRO Support info.

If your a professional photographer, you’re working with you gear daily. If and when it needs to be fixed, you can’t wait weeks. You need it back as fast as humanly possible. When I was a Canon shooter I belonged to Canon Professional Services {CPS}. You had to fill out an application, prove that you are a professional photographer and pay a yearly fee. Same with Sony.

Sony stepped up and realizes that to get their cameras in the hands of professional photographers they need to support them by offering PRO Support. I’m proud to be working with Sony. They listen, react and bring to market cutting edge technology and service.
