  78. If I were to win this wonderful camera, it would be well used. Recently I’ve grown nostalgic thanks to our box of home-videos, our amateur movies and childhood preserved on film. My sisters and I, one of which has a three year old now, have all expressed a burning desire to go back to making short films and capturing every day in its entirety (something we’ll thank ourselves for in the future, as we do now to our young selves).
    But there’s also the photographic aspect which I’ve become intensely interested in, to the point of spending the entire night researching and teaching myself about photography.
    I’m also determined and excited over starting a YouTube channel, something that requires a decent camera.
    To add one last thing, these next few months will be extremely busy and I’ll be going to dozens of new places. I want a camera to make this vacation memorable, I don’t want it to fade from my mind or turn into a murky memory too frustrating to even bother trying to recall.

    For the past few months I’ve be indecisive over which camera to purchase, but I’ve *always* gone back to the D3100. The fact that this opportunity popped up on my Pinterest page after a long day of looking over refurbished Nikon cameras seems almost like fate.

  79. My family, our travels, and the food I blog about.

  80. My family, my friends, hopefully future clients and their families.

  81. I would use it to photograph all the wonderful memories that will be made (:

  82. I’d photograph my daughter who is turning 1.. my mom lives in asia so I’d email her pictures from my phone but I’d love to send her beautiful prints from a nice camera like the canon

  83. I would use this camera to take pictures of everything, especially my cute little nephew.

  84. Four grand kids that all play soccer and baseball. I would be giving this camera a workout every Saturday and Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, until the end of time (well, not really, but sometimes it feels like it, if you know what I mean “:0)
