Win a Samsung 2View Camera

Every time my family and I went out for any type of activity whether a simple lunch out or a trip out of town, the first thing that occupies my backpack is my good old digital camera to capture every moment that me, my wife and our 2-year old son Charles will share.

Problem is our camera for 5 years has been “behaving unusually” lately and only gets clear pictures indoors. I went to the service center and the verdict is I need to replace the lens that would cost me more than P3000. What?! I could get a brand new camera for that amount. So my hunt for a new camera is on.

Through the help of Google, I came to know the Sam sung 2View Camera series which is comprised of the ST700, PL170, PL120. The ser ies offers the latest in Samsung’s point-and-shoot innovation, which is the dual LCD screen feature found at the front side and back side of the came ra. This is perfect for my family since we tend to ask assistance from strangers just for us to have a souvenir family picture.
Samsung also maximized this great innovation by adding two useful features to the front LCD.

A built in “Child Mode” feature is available, where you ca n download or create your own animation to keep your kids’ smiling and entertained, a s you take interesting photos of them. Say goodbye to bored baby pictures!

It also has a “Jump Shot” feature, which offers a visual count down in its front screen that tells you exactly when to jump before taking three fast shots of you and your friends. Say goodbye to failed jumps!

I am now getting a little excited since I think I just found the camera that I am looking for--- digital buddy that will capture every happy moments of my family for years to come.
