Professional photographers just got a brand new best friend in Sony. According to a recent press release from the electronics and digital imaging behemoth, Sony is launching what it’s calling a “Pro Support” service program that comes with premium-level service, repair, support, and even equipment loans to those willing to pony up a yearly membership fee.
For $100 per year, members can access perks like dedicated phone support, expedited repair service, loans for expensive equipment repair, equipment loaners to test drive merchandise prior to purchasing, free camera maintenance, free shipping, discounts for out-of-warranty repairs, and a snazzy welcome kit.
Membership to the Pro Support service program is limited to “active professional photographers” who are either self-employed or members of a professional imaging business. Already in beta, the program launches officially on October 30. Interested applicants can find more information by clicking here.
