Somehow I was able to find the time to pick-up the excellent Sony Alpha NEX-7 interchangeable-lens mirrorless camera, and go around Tokyo shooting pictures and finding angles very early in the morning.
I used the awesomely sharp Carl Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 prime lens, and enjoyed the sights at the Tsukiji fish market and nearby back streets in the Gynza district as much as possible.
I finally wrapped up my session with angles of the city and the Shinagawa train station at sunrise, with the incredible luck of being able to capture the amazing Fuji mountain peak and its perpetual snow (only for the 2nd time in 11 years visiting Japan).
It was such an inspiring and beautiful sight...!
A short video I edited a couple years ago, that pretty much sums-up the best of my years as the Technical Marketing Manager, then Product Manager, for the eVehicle division in the Mobile Electronics Dept. in Sony Latin America, Inc.
So many good professional and personal experiences, great people I met and awesome activities I was able to complete with the help of our colleagues, partners and suppliers between 2001 and 2011. Definitely some of my best years in Sony.
My early years in the Car Audio industry were as a complete fanatic, devouring anything and everything relating to Head Units, Equalizers, Amplifiers, Speakers and Subwoofers, that I could get my hands on.
It was a really great time and the very beginning of my career as an expert in the field in Latin America.
These are some of the early products I loved or had at the time, and my memories about them.
