Suffice to say, photography rules my life. Last spring, during our family trip to Palm Springs, I brought along my trusty Olympus Epic for my son (7 years old) to shoot a few rolls with. Unfortunately, we ended up leaving it in the seat pocket on the plane and several months later United Airlines has yet to find the camera. I guess we'll have to chalk it up to experience. My son was pretty sad about it, his Dad probably more. It was a good reliable camera that yielded good results. I think it's important to teach my children about the historical importance of film photography and although I have several other film cameras I do miss the little Olympus we lost last spring. I'd love to be able to give him the Olympus Trip AF 31 as a replacement. I'll even post the results of his first roll and pass on the link if we're chosen'
Air travel companies are useless enough with properly tagged luggage, let alone finding a camera, so we were more than happy to send him the Olympus!
We can't wait to see the results your son gets from the little beast!
August camera giveaway
So on a new note, we now have THREE cameras up for grabs this month!
First off is the Canon Sureshot Owl PF featuring a 35mm f3.8 Canon lens, Flash and self timer options!
It has a big viewfinder and shutter button, so perfect with those who have bad eyesight or stubby fingers!
Our second camera is the Pentax Espio 60S with a 35mm - 60mm zoom lens. You have the option to turn the auto flash off, as well as redeye flash, so it is a pretty nifty camera for street shooting!
We have another Canon Prima BF! It features a 35mm f/4.5 lens, auto flash and a self timer! It also has a large viewfinder to get the most detail in!
All of these cameras come with a carry case to protect it from the elements! (Except losing it, then you're screwed hehe)
As always, email an entry to firstname.lastname@example.org with your reason why you think you should win one of these bad boys!
Limit of one camera per entry, so pick a camera and give us your reason!
We will have another update at the end of the month announcing all 3 winners!
