You know that I've been part of the #Imagelogger team with Samsung for about a year now. So you know that for a year you've been seeing me tag posts with #ditchthedslr. Well, what is that all about?
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 is inviting 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.
WAIT. WHAT DID I SAY?!
Samsung is GIVING OUT* NEW NX30 cameras tomorrow in Times Square from 12-6pm ET when you #ditchthedslr (*see qualifications for DSLR trade ins below).
People of New York City and other areas that you can get to Times Square tomorrow: This is a $999 camera. I have it and I LOVE IT. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE IT. It's SO worth trading in that passe DSLR for.
The first consumers that #DitchtheDSLR (via trade in) will receive a NEW Samsung NX30 SMART Camera ($999 value). Attendees will also have the chance to receive a $50 rebate towards the purchase of a Samsung NX camera like the new NX Mini, when they pledge to #DitchtheDSLR. Samsung #Imagelogger members will be on-hand to offer helpful tips, and share their experiences using mirrorless cameras. FULL Terms and Conditions via the following URL:
