Samsung Experience stores ready to safely welcome customers

Will follow health and safety protocols



Much like other businesses, Samsung Experience stores were forced to stop operating due to the coronavirus pandemic. As the Philippines slowly tried to revive its economy, the experience stores are opening their doors once more while following safety and health protocols.

Samsung Philippines adheres to the guidelines set by the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases. To keep consumers and employees safe, health and safety protocols are strictly followed – limiting the number of its customers to only 50 percent, mandatory use of masks, and frequent cleaning in all stores.

Here’s a rundown of how Samsung is complying with the rules and providing all of us a safe shopping experience.

Unique QR health declaration codes

These are installed at every entrance of Samsung Experience Stores to promote a safe and contactless contact tracing process. After completing the health declaration form, customers are greeted by Samsung Experience Store personnel, wearing face masks and face shields in the stores at all times. Health and safety precaution guidelines are also distributed inside the stores.

Product demonstrations are done side-by-side instead of face-to-face

This is also done while keeping the required safe distance of one (1) meter to make sure everyone is socially-distanced. Smart Switch self-help guides and leaflets are also issued to customers to minimize prolonged interaction in the store.

Store personnel always disinfect the display units

They do the same for frequently visited areas of the store after every customer interaction.

Acrylic sneeze shields are installed in cashier counters

This serves as a protective barrier between employees and customers. They are installed in all Samsung Experience stores.

Live Shop Assist

If you’re still not convinced there’s still Samsung’s Live Shop Assist as well as the Customer Service Hotline. Both methods connect you to a Samsung Product expert to help with your shopping needs while minimizing physical interactions in the stores.

The Sony Alpha ZV-E10 is a vlogging camera

Among other things



The prospect of owning your very own mirrorless camera became more enticing to people after the pandemic hit and people turned to online jobs to earn living. For some, that meant putting on the digital creator hat. Perhaps seeing the trend, Sony launches a camera that addresses this need — the Sony Alpha ZV-E10.

It’s the first on Sony’s vlogging camera series to feature interchangeable lenses, giving users more versatility. This isn’t the case with the camera’s sibling, the ZV-1. It has a 24.2MP APS-C Exmor CMOS sensor, which means anyone looking to expand their lens selections should look out for e-mount lenses.

Now, about the vlogging part. It’s small, lightweight (around 343g) and includes the side-opening Vari-angle LCD Screen that allows creators to connect external mics on top of the camera.

The new camera also includes advanced video features:

  • Internal 4K movie recording through full pixel readout without pixel binning
  • High bit rate XAVC S™ codec at 100Mbps when recording 4K
  • Slow & Quick Motion
  • High-speed full HD recording at 120 fps
  • Interval Shooting for stunning time-lapse videos
  • Hybrid Log-Gamma (HDR) / S-Gamut3.Cine / S-Log3, S-Gamut3 / S-Log3

A unique feature of the Alpha ZV-E10 is the zoom lever that can operate optical zoom with power zoom lenses and Clear Image zoom with prime lenses.

When pairing the camera with a prime lens, the user can zoom without losing video resolution to maintain full 4K video. The user can also choose from eight zoom speed settings for added creative flexibility.

Taking things further for content creators, the ZV-E10 can be purchased with the optional GP-VPT2BT Shooting Grip with Wireless Remote Commander. It’s a one-handed shooting is simplified with easy to access zoom, record and a customizable button.

The camera can also be connected to your laptop or PC to function as a webcam with the Image Edge Desktop App. A mobile version of the app is also available for easier image file transfer.

Price and availability

The Alpha ZV-E10 will be available in black and white at selected retail shops. The body-only option retails for US$ 698, while the kit lens (E PZ 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OSS power zoom) option retails for US$ 798.

In the Philippines, it retails for PhP 39,999 — that’s a packaged offer for the ZV-E10 and the kit lens. The pre-order also includes two (2) 32GB SD Cards for free.

It’s currently on pre-order in the US and the Philippines.

In Singapore, it will be available in August 2021.
