Don't do it!!!
Jul 15, 2011

My wife wanted a Nex 3 in Pink but they apparently only come in Japanese language (locked via the hardware, tried UK firmware first people).

She had a red UK one so....

I ordered her a pink one and did what she asked of me.


My god are they tightly built! Amazing how crammed they are. Was the most awful job. However, I did it and the pink one pulled through.....

Unfortunately the Red didn't make it. It failed to survive the trauma. It switches on but comes up with one word in Jap obviously like some sort of error word i assume as i am no Japanese speaking person. I struggle with my native English being from Norfolk!

So to summarise, the wife is happy, I had a nightmare and the Red is dead!

Don't ever go down this route unless you're extremely daring as it's a b17ch!!!
