To celebrate the holiday season, I want to give away an Olympus Tough TG-1 iHS Digital Camera. It's one of my favorite compact cameras, and I think someone else should enjoy one too.
The TG-1 is what I used for my last trip to Maui to photograph the beauty both topside and underwater. It's fast f/2.0 lens combined with rugged performance makes it the perfect camera to slide into a pocket of your board shorts or day pack. Plus, I love the built-in GPS that geotags my photos on the spot. Check out some of my underwater images from the TG-1.
How to Participate
Participation is open from Dec. 9 to Dec. 16, 2012, PST. First, follow me on Instagram (http://instagram.com/derrickstory). You'll have to set up a free account. Instagram is an app that you can download from the iTunes App Store. My Instagram handle is: derrickstory
Then post a photo of your favorite camera. Add hashtags #FavoriteCamera and #DerrickStory to the post. (I'm going to try to follow you back too!)
Personal note: My goal has been to post a photo a day on Instagram, and as a result I feel like I've added a new facet to my photography. It's a great outlet for pure creativity.
On the week of Dec. 17, I'm going to publish some of my favorite images from this event here on The Digital Story. The camera recipient will be randomly selected from participants who published Instagram photos that follow the criteria outlined in this post. The Olympus TG-1 will be shipped the week of Dec. 17, 2012.
