Awesome, a café for photography lovers! Don’t forget to bring your DSLR cameras because when you buy a drink you can try out a large selection of their lenses. They probably have almost every single variety of lenses that you can think of, starting from the minis to the big guns. Some of the photos from above were shot with different lenses…can you tell which ones?
Those in an emergency need of a camera body and lens are able to rent them here too! This makes me think back on the time where I fell in the river and broke my camera the day before an important photo shoot. ~_~
The Baristas there aren’t just ordinary manual coffee machines either; they themselves are DSLR junkies too. You can explain to them what is wrong with your current lens, or you can even tell them what you want in a new lens, and they will happily recommend one for you to try out. If that lens wasn’t what you were looking for, they will try hard and recommend another until you have what you are looking for. Aww such nice people AND they make great coffee. Their sweet potato latte (pictured) was especially exquisite.
Café’ra (카페라) is great for budding photographers to test drive the lenses before buying their own. It’s especially good for me as I am not a big techie on cameras. You would be surprised as to how little I know about the technicalities of photography. Yes, I love photography, but when someone tries to explain to me about the theories of it…I can’t help but smack the snooze button as soon as someone mentions ‘aperture’.
To be frank, I am happy with my current set (haha what set?…. I only have one body and one lens), I kind of vowed that my last purchase would be my last ever investment. A barista showed me a few lenses and there is one in particular…well…made me think about whether I should invest one or not again…
Humans are so greedy…
Regret to say that the cafe has been closed. If I find out where they have moved, I will update again~ thanks!
