A digital camera is up for grabs

2/2/08: This GIVEAWAY is now CLOSED. I am no longer accepting new entries. Thank you for all of the interest! πŸ™‚

It’s time again for another round of the Bloggy Giveaways Carnival and this time I’ve got something supa-dupa cool to give away – a digital camera!

It’s an HP Photosmart M547 6.2 MP 3x Optical Zoom digital camera. (Thank you, HP!) I’d like to say that it’s brand new in the box, but the truth is that I took it out and used it a handful of times. That was back when we were thinking of buying a new camera and I wanted to see how this one handled. HP Photosmart M547The good news is that it’s a fine point and shoot camera, is easy to use, has a powerful (in my opinion) flash and 2.4″ LCD, and takes good pictures. It’s small enough to fit in your pocket and is a nice little camera. It does need a memory card and batteries, but my husband tells me that you can get a good 2 GB card for under $20 (heck, under $13!) at Amazon.

If you want a chance to win this camera and you live in the continental United States (sorry, but I can’t afford the cost of shipping internationally), please leave a comment below and make sure you include a valid email address so that I can get in touch with you if you are the winner. You do not need to have a blog in order to enter. I will randomly select a winner (using Random.org) on Saturday, Feb. 2, and announce the winner later that day.

Good luck! πŸ™‚

    Love your site. We’re working on weatherizing right now, moving away from plastic, and trying to eat local as much as possible.

    Thanks for all the great tips!

  3. i would love the chance to win the camera!! i don’t have one, though i’m hoping i’ll get one for my birthday (april).

  4. What a generous giveaway, I would love to enter.

    I look forward to reading more of your blog. Your blog header is adorable? Did you design it yourself?


  5. That sounds like a great camera for us! My son dropped ours on our kitchen floor and it has never been the same since! So, sign me up πŸ™‚


  6. Wow! What a giveaway! Looks like fun-I’d love to win it to take pics of my family since my little one dropped my camera on the floor and broke whatever makes the flash work-boo hoo!


  7. Wow – what an amazing giveaway. Makes my giveaway of homemade dishcloths look like…well certainly NOTHING like a camera!

    Thank you for including me in the opportunity to win such an amazing prize!

  8. I would love this. I just got a new DSLR camera and it is wonderful, but you can’t exactly throw it in your diaper bag. I’ve been afraid to talk to hubby about a new point and shoot…I swore the DSLR was all I would ever need πŸ™‚

  9. Oh, if I win I’d give it to my mom. She REALLY needs a digital camera and this would be perfect for her! This is an awesome giveaway!

  10. Oh, wow! Thanks for the opportunity. What a great b’day present for my soon-to-be-10 year old daughter! She’s very interested in photography, and has no zoom at all on her current camera.

  11. Oh Amy! We SO need this πŸ™‚ We’ve been talking about getting a second, small camera so I’ll take more photos of the kids…or so dh says πŸ™‚


  12. We could use a second camera in our family. My husband travels a lot and seems to want to take our camera with him to someplace like China, when we need it at home.

  13. Wow, what a great prize. I had an HP camera but my daughter borrowed it and well you know the rest so I need a new one. And I already know how to use it!

  14. Hi,
    Can I please enter if I’m prepared to pay shipping? I bought a book from the US and it was only $10 shipping so I can’t imagine how this will be any more expensive than that and well worth my while. πŸ™‚

    Thanks very much.

  15. I’m up in Alaska, so that might disqualify me from your drawing, but I did want to comment on what a great site you have. I’ve bookmarked it for future reference.

  16. Wow, I just wish I had a bit more readers and something even half as great to give away to join. I just found out this morning, so I’ll be racking my brain.

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  17. Holy Moley, what a great giveaway. Count me in, please! We haven’t seen our digital camera in 3 months after my son accidentally got his hands on it and promptly lost it. I’m convinced it went the same place all the lost socks go from the dryer. πŸ˜‰

  18. Wow — what a great giveaway! My current camera is so big, I’d love something that could fit in my pocket! mlciavola(at)yahoo(dot)com.

  19. Whoa, this is by far the BEST giveaway in the entire carnival. We would love a new digital camera, but I’d give it to my sister who doesn’t have one at all. Not even the old-fashioned kind. So please randomly pick me, it would go to a great home!

  20. I would love to win. Will you ship to a FPO AE box? Military post box, means filling out customs form. If not, do not worry about it.

  21. I won a digital camera last year and gave it to my daughter this Christmas. And it DIDN’T WORK! So I’d love to win this one for her.

  22. Wow – that would be a great camera to use with my science classes. I could train them to see nature in a whole new way!!!
    Thanks for the giveaway – and a great blog!!

  23. Is it bad if I think I NEED a new camera just to further my blog-life? πŸ˜‰ My posting falls by the wayside whenever I can’t take pictures to blog about…and our old camera is slowly dying on me.

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  24. Oh… I could so use a new camera. Then my 12 year old could have my old one and we would both be happy πŸ™‚ Thank you!!

  25. Well, the odds are against me, but the situation isn’t hopeless. Please enter me in your drawing! I don’t mind a bit that you’ve tried it out yourself.

  26. Would love this…my sister recently dropped my digital camera into her glass of sprite…not cool!!! Really could use this!!!

  27. I my goodness…..I need this. My camera has the slowest shutter speed known to man. And we will be entering Graduate School soon and I need one before we get in. LOL. Please let me win.

  28. Would love to win this. My son’s b-day is coming up soon and it would be nice for him to have a camera instead of always using ours! Thanks for the chance to win.

  29. Oh my gosh – this is a spectacular giveaway. I could really use a digital camera and this one looks amazing. Thank you for the giveaway and please enter me!

  30. We gave my 6 -yr old a hand-me-down digital at Christmas and it broke in one week. It was a fluke, so I’d love to give her one she can use. She likes taking pictures as much as I do!

  31. Okay, I have a digital camera. But I WOULD LOVE to get a new one and gift it to the intended parents of the surrogate baby I am carrying. They are going to need a nice camera for when their son arrives in two months. πŸ™‚ THANKS! surrogacyrocks at yahoo dot com

  32. This would be such a great surprise to give my daughter for her birthday!! I so hope that you have to email me and tell me that I am the proud owner of this awesome prize!!!

  33. Oh! If I won this, I think we’d be best friends. Or I’ll give you a pack of gum! haha.
    Schoolyard tactics don’t work here. But that camera is supercool.
