Have a chat wth Bryan about the latest compact powerhouse from Sony, the RX100 VII, and his experiences using it as his daily walkabout camera.

No rules, no formalities (and no seats!) - just meaningful conversations, a good cup of hand-crafted coffee by Bettr Barista and artisanal desserts from our #KaKiNang partner, Nesuto Patisserie.

No registration is required either. Simply pop by our Peninsula Plaza outlet (#01-04 to 08) any time between 11am to 2pm and get the conversation going!
