Get a Free Samsung NX30 Camera if you DITCHtheDSLR

Photo-A-Day #3340

I’m part of a group of photographers that shoot with Samsung cameras. so far I’ve received three great cameras, the NX300, NX30 and NXMini. I shoot with all three of them but at the present time the NXMini is my go to camera because it is small and I can bring it with me anywhere. They always say that the best camera to have it the one you have with you. Occasionally one of the Imageloggers will post something on our private group page and it sparks the creativity of everyone else. Well, the latest has been a FoodWars of sorts. Imageloggers shooting great shots of really tasty looking food. There was a time when everyone shot Talenti Gelato which caused a run on that item (from the Imageloggers). This was my entry into FoodWars. Allison was at a conference today and so I stopped at Five Guys to grab dinner before work. I had my NXMini on me and used the Food setting to take the shot.

Speaking of the Imagelogger Program. One of our hashtags has been #DITCHtheDSLR. well, this coming Wednesday in Times Square, NYC Samsung is taking that hashtag to heart and if you are willing to Ditch your DSLR you can trade it in for a brand NEW Samsung NX30 SMART Camera ($999 value). That is a sweet deal and there are going to be many of those cameras for you to get. The event is running from 12pm – 6pm. The full details are in the press release below.

Why: For years photographers have been misled to believe that they need big, often awkward DSLRs to take great pictures. Smaller mirrorless cameras, like the Samsung NX30, can outperform DSLRs and they feature the connectivity that on-the-go photographers have come to expect. To dispel the myth that only DSLRs can capture amazing images, Samsung invites consumers to join its Digital Imaging team on Ditch Day in Times Square to ditch their DSLR and receive a NEW NX30 while supplies last. While there, participants are welcome try Samsung’s entire NX camera lineup, including the new NX Mini and see what’s possible.

With the compact design and the versatility of a DSLR, mirrorless cameras are perfect for pro shooters, as well as photo enthusiasts of all levels of experience. Samsung looks to get consumers familiar with the fastest growing sector in Digital Imaging.
