Won a EOS-M + 22mm at Golf Tournament
« on: August 14, 2013, 09:56:57 AM »
The company I work for opened a golf tournament, to support American Cancer Society. With 2 kids (2 & 4yrs), I couldn’t recall the last time hitting balls at the range, therefore, I didn’t expect to win any prices from the tournament.

It turned out, Hole #14, par 3, 165yards, #7 iron – I got my very 1st HOLE-IN-ONE ;D ;D ;D. I thought I going get a 1D X for that, it turned out EOS-M + 22mm. Final score +9. 

I thought I would share my "HAPPY STORY" with everyone here.

Congratulations on the hole-in-one!  I've been playing golf for many years and still haven't had one.  Close several times, but not yet...

Since you already have an RX100 II I can't imagine you will use the EOS-M much however.

that's awesome!  I get excited playing miniature golf... I can't imagine hitting a hole in one on a big course.

A friends company had a golf tournament and one of the prizes was a waterproof camera..... It went to the person who put the most balls into water hazards. Glad your prize was for a much more worthy accomplishment...
The best camera is the one in your hands

Thanks AudioGlenn,

Congratulations on the hole-in-one! 

Since you already have an RX100 II I can imagine you will sell it and use the EOS-M, which is much more versatile and gives better images and video.

Thanks markr041,

Long story short, I bought EOS-M during $299 deal through BH. I brought it with me last trip to China. It's quite big for jean pocket. I tried the RX100 II when I was in Hong Kong. I like it a lot, not to mention it's pocktable. I ended up selling my EOS-M on CL for $365 and replaced with RX100 II.

I'm not sure what to do with EOS-M that I won from golf Tournament. I might sell it on CL again.

Congrats on the Ace! If it were me I probably would have shot a +9, too...on THAT hole. :)

Congrats on a great story! Too bad you already had that camera... but hey, you can always give it away to someone who really wants it... like people from South America like me ;) haha
Lots of cinema gear, Sony NEX-5T with kit zoom lens for stills

CONGRATULATIONS!  8) 8) 8) ... in 2008, I won a fancy looking Golf kit, clubs (or whatever they are called) bag and golf shoes (which did not fit my feet), during a raffle at an office event ... but I never played golf and I don't know how to play golf ... the whole kit was sitting in the house occupying space, in the hope that I'd one day learn and start playing golf, which never happened so 2 years later my wife sold it to a colleague of hers ... I let her keep the money, so I could have an excuse to spend money on new lenses for my camera ... I still occasionally use the Golf kit sale as an excuse to buy new camera gear ;D :-[ ... well a Man's gotta do what he wants to do by hook or crook ;D
