I've got the hat to prove it...

Unread postby David Kilpatrick » Fri Apr 11, 2014 5:09 pm

I once owned and used a Dynax 9... and this week, I was digging around for a baseball cap or two to take to southern India (sun protection) where in the past you would not have walked far with a branded cap and not been offered vast (but valueless) sums in exchange.

Still, it doesn't look a very branded item does it?

Now you see it... Minolta always really had style. The other cap I've got with me is a recent Nikon Professional one. It's nothing like the same quality as this 17 year old, previously unworn souvenir!

Interesting I've seen the odd Minolta branded cap about, but not this one. Strangely Sony never really embraced this kind of marketing concept, wonder if it helps brand awareness.
