  29. Char says

    What an exciting giveaway! I’ve always wanted a camera like this. My hubby bought me a camera two Christmases ago (to replace my first ever digital camera. I believe it was one of those small silver Kodaks. It started taking grainy pictures. I got it as a gift when my first baby was born). However, we realized, quickly, that it doesn’t capture things as well. ANY amount of movement makes the picture blurry. :( Now that I have a 4 year old AND a 2 year old, I want to take more and more pictures, but I can’t. My Nikon Coolpix has just been such a disappointment….or maybe I just don’t know how to take pictures. Either way, my husband can take better pictures on HIS bday gift (an iPod Touch) that his parents bought him, than I can with my camera. How sad is that? And these little cameras are expensive! Anyway, what a wonderful giveaway. Fun, nervewracking, and exciting. Always the best kind. :)

  30. Donna Feidler says

    I have 6 + 2 beautiful grandkiddos and 2 dogs that I would take pictures of. I may even take some of the hubby if he’s nice.

  31. Melissa Ott says

    I love taking pictures of my family, friends, food, nature and just about everything else!! I have been wanting a new camera for a long time so this would be fantastic to win!

  32. Jamie S says

    I really want to learn to take photos of my family. Especially, if there is baby in our future!

  33. Debbie says

    We’ve been travelling a bit more often these days – would love to have a good camera to capture the great moments and sites!

  34. says

    The only reason I can even Blog today with some pictures is because my neighbor had an extra little digital camera..I love her for it and it does the job, but nor near as nice as I could do with a real camera.
    I am going on my first vacation out- of- the at the end of September, I have never had a passport until now @ 46 years old. I would LOVE to be able to take a good camera with me and go Hog wild with it taking and sharing pictures of Cabo San Lucas. Thanks for having the giveaway!

  35. shae johnson says

    My daughter in the fall time–with all the different colors on the trees it makes for amazing pictures!

  36. says

    my kids!!! And my soap and crochet projects and the kids in my neighborhood and…oh wait – was I just supposed to pick one!?

  37. Jeannette Laframboise says

    I have never had a good camera so honestly, I would be excited to take photos of just about everything. Family, nature, summer activities etc. I would have a great old time with it I’m sure!

  38. Nathania H says

    My beautiful babies! We’re moving further away from my family, so being able to show them pictures of how fast they’re growing, I think they will love that!

  39. Saskia says

    I’d take pictures of what means most to me, my heart, and my family; which is the peaceful, tranquil scenery (or crazy everyday life!) of loveleeey wales 😀

  40. Amber Ann Schambach says

    Great giveaway, thank you for this amazing opportunity! I would definitely, be most excited to take pictures of my little angel of a daughter (so far, knock on wood!) and all the lasting memories I’d like her to remember when she is older. Although she is just about 3 months old, there are so many ‘Firsts’ that can’t quite be captured -compared to the quality of the naked eye, with an iPhone 4s. My mom had a canon, and I love the pictures of my sisters & I, that she has from when we were younger. Thank you so much again, good luck!

  41. says

    I am excited to take great pictures of my kids! They are all in really fun stages of life right now and I want to capture it well. Great giveaway!!

  43. Sharifah says

    What an amazing giveaway! I’ve alway wanted one of these fancy cameras. God willing if I will, I’d be most excited about finally taking some great pictures of my kids. Also, I love pictures of nature. We have an amazing country and I would love to show my view of it all to family and friends.

    Wishing everyone the best of luck!
