Samsung NX300 Camera | Visiting San Diego
Remember how I told you we would wrap up the Spark Your Summer with a few fun giveaways? Well, today’s the day and I think you are going to LOVE what I have to share! I hope you enjoyed all of the awesome guest posts over the last 7 weeks. In case you missed any of them, you can find them all here on the Spark Your Summer page. Today, there will be 3 posts to send Spark Your Summer off with a BANG! 2 fabulous giveaways this morning, then tonight, you can come back and link up any of your summer posts for a Spark Your Summer edition of I’m Lovin’ It linky party! It will be a whole lot of summer in one place! (EDITED to say giveaway 2 is now live! go enter to win one of 2 POWERSOUND II personalized speakers!) So let’s get this party started! Who wants a new GORGEOUS camera?! keep reading………… (and don’t forget to check back a little later for another fun giveaway that will have you on your feet!) Taking pictures has always been something I’ve enjoyed! Even way before blogging, I was always the one with the camera taking all the pictures. I love that blogging has allowed me the opportunity to grow that passion, and learn more about photography……all at the same time that iphoneography has taken the world by storm. There’s a rare moment that we don’t have our phones on us to capture memories and moments. As cool and handy as my iphone is, it can’t do what my big girl camera can do (think zoom lenses especially).
There are times I will carry both my big dslr with my 28-75mm lens around and still take pictures with my iphone…..you know, because I can’t miss an opportunity to Instagram what I’m doing in the moment 😉 But most of the time, I leave my big girl camera at home, hoping to get “good enough” shots with my iphone. Several weeks ago, my friends at Staples offered to send me a camera that is a game changer!! The Samsung NX300 20.3 MP SMART Microless Camera With 20-50 mm Lens – what makes this little gem so special?
This camera has WiFi capability! You can upload pictures from the camera to your phone or even straight to Facebook and videos right to YouTube. No more juggling 2 cameras! ….tell me I’m not the only one who takes a picture with their big camera, then whips out their iphone so they can share a picture on Facebook or Instagram. And lets take it a step further…….. The Samsung NX300 comes with a 20-50 mm retractable zoom lens in the box, but there are many other lenses that you can get for this camera (I want to get the 18-200mm) , great for those of us who don’t want the bulk of a DSLR camera. What really makes the NX300 stand out is it’s size….. just 12 ounces, which makes it easy to just toss in my purse. Now I don’t have to choose between using my phone or the DSLR! My daughters and I went to San Diego and stayed on Coronado Island at Hotel Del a few weeks ago. I took my dslr, my iphone and the NX300 with me, guess which one I used the most?! Below are just a few of the photos we took on our trip with the Samsung NX300
The girls were SO excited to be in Southern California for the first time!……and their first time seeing the Pacific Ocean.
Hotel Del Coronado was even more beautiful in person! we can’t wait to go back!
We headed over to Misson Beach to people watch on our last evening.
Mission Beach boardwalk.
We made a few friends at the San Diego Zoo!
The weather was just as gorgeous as all the animals.
All of the Koalas were napping. so cute!
We took a walk on Coronado Island one evening where you could see the San Diego skyline…….the Samsung NX300 did fabulous in the dark – this was shot with out a tripod. I’ll be honest, I’m in love with the gorgeous white leather, but it does come in black and brown as well I’ll be sharing a little more about our trip soon……but I couldn’t wait to share these photos with you AND give away a camera!! That’s right! This beautiful camera ($750) could be yours! How’s that for Spark Your Summer?!

I’d love to have someone deep clean my kitchen for me every 2 weeks. Seriously – with all the baking and cooking I do… it needs it and I HATE DOING IT MYSELF! haha 🙂
I love the wifi capability! We live far away from our family and this would make it so much easier to share pictures with them! Right now, I don’t send nearly enough pictures, but with this camera, I would send pictures every day!
I love the size and that you can change lenses!
Okay, it’s of weird I need to leave another comment about cleaning… But I’d love for someone to clean my garage!
lol sorry – I fixed it – it was supposed to just ask what you like about the camera 😉
my Bathroom! Hate doing that one with 2 boys in the house.
I love the night shot you took & I struggle with those on my camera.
My garage! It’s filthy and I just never have time with a fussy infant.
I love that the Samsung NX300 has WIFI capabilities. YAY! 😀
I like the small form factor of this camera. It looks like it would be both portable and versatile.
I would really like someone to clean my kitchen. I just haven’t had time to really give it a good cleaning in a while.
I’d love someone to just organize my stuff. Seriously. AS far as cleaning…the tub…I *hate* cleaning it.
Someone please clean my baseboards! Whoa dust!
Also not sure which to comment on, so I’ll comment about the camera too! Love the wifi! So great for today’s social media!
ooops sorry – I forgot to change the question in the widget from the last giveaway –thanks it’s fixed. Good luck!!
Definitely love the WiFi capability – guilty of taking the second shot with the iPhone (or only with the iPhone) because of the sharing capability. 🙂
I would love that it is light and portable. Perfect for my honeymoon in November!! I need a camera to take pictures on it other than my iPhone!!
I love the size of this camera. Not bulky, perfect to take anywhere! I need a new camera, since my son just broke mine!

I LOVE the looks of this camera, but I really like the wi-fi capability. I’ve wanted a better camera for quite a while but I’m just terrible at spending money on myself for the extra stuff- I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to win!
The wifi / sharing ability. And it’s cute! I love the white.
My favorite feature is the advanced autofocus system – “brings crystal clarity to fast moving subjects, and a short shutter release lag helps capture the fleeting moment before the subject moves out of frame.” Thanks for the chance to win!
I love the wifi capability because I always take pictures with my camera I have now and wish that I could share them right then.
