Nikon D3100 and 35mm Lens Giveaway!

Pin It

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Are you feeling LUCKY? Good, because I’m sending some luck your way today! A bunch of bloggers and I have gotten together to give away a Nikon D3100 AND a 35mm lens to go with it!

Lucky Day Giveaway

I have this camera, and that lens. They are both amazing! I got my Nikon back in October and have not looked back at all. I got the 35mm lens for Christmas and, well. I am LOVING it and I know you will too!

Here’s what you can win:

One (1) winner will receive a Nikon D3100 SLR Camera (body only) and a 35mm f/1.8 lens to shoot with. Here are the specs:

Nikon D3100 SLR Camera {Body Only}

  • 14.2 megapixel DX-format CMOS image sensor
  • Active D-Lighting
  • 3.0 inch Color LCD Monitor
  • Picture Control System expands creativity
  • Nikon Integrated Dust Reduction System
  • Full HD 1080p movies with sound and full-time autofocus
  • ISO range of 100 to 3200 (expandable to 12800-Hi2)
  • 6 Automatic Exposure Scene Modes- Portrait, Landscape, Child, Sports, Close-up or Night Portrait

Nikon 35mm f/1.8G AF-S DX Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras

  • Fast, f/1.8 prime lens is perfect for low-light conditions, travel, environmental portrait and general photography
  • Engineered for Nikon DX-format D-SLRS, the AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G lens renders a picture angle approximating the classic normal angle of view of a 50mm lens on a Nikon FXformat digital SLR or 35mm film camera
  • Aspherical lens element minimizes coma and other types of lens aberrations, further improving image integrity
  • Nikon Super Integrated Coating (SIC) enhances light transmission efficiency and offers color consistency and reduced flare
  • Exclusive Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables fast, accurate and quiet autofocus
  • Close focusing to 1 foot for creative perspectives and versatility
  • Rounded 7-blade diaphragm opening makes out-of-focus elements appear more natural
  • Accepts 52mm filter attachments

Pretty sweet, huh?

Seriously, I put this lens on my camera on December 25th and I have not taken it off. Bright light, dark light, it performs amazingly, and I know you’ll love it!

So…are you feeling lucky? Enter to win, and find out!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

    I would LOVE to win this camera! I’m using my manual Nikon FM from about 1978. While this camera is great (and doubles as a weapon when traveling), it is time for me to enter this century! Not many places to develop film any more. : ) It would also get my blog/website out of its slow start rut. -Liz

    I would LOVE to win this Nikon camera and lens. I have a manual Nikon FM circa 1978. While this a great camera (and doubles as a weapon while traveling) it is time for me to enter this century and get my new blog/website out of my rut and slow start. Besides, not many places develop film any more! : ) – Liz

I think, being St. Patrick’s Day though, that Chocolate Mint Poke Cake would appear this morning though. :) Thanks for sharing!

    I would use this to hopefully improve my food photography for my blog, and maybe get some lessons from my brother and his girlfriend who are both photojournalists. They always are telling me the photographer takes good pictures, not the camera- we’ll see :-)

    Food photography for me and my grandkids. I could you use a new lens.

    Thank you so much for this giveaway!! How awesome! I have been using my point-and-shoot for my blog pictures and I think I’m ready for the big time. I feel lucky!! :-)

    Whoa! I would love to have a fancy camera. I am so tired of my point & shoot. I upgraded this past week from an ancient flip phone to an iPhone but a camera upgrade is next on my list!

    Everything and anything! I use my Nikon every day but it is several years old and wearing out! :(

    Oooohhhh…I bet this is an amazing camera. Good luck everyone! {But, a little more luck for me! :)}

    I’d love it for better product photos!

  136. Sam Tsai posted on March 18, 2013 at 9:16 pm (#)

    Food (definitely), especially at restaurants and at home. Oh, and nature, for when my family and I go out to hike.

  137. Crissy posted on March 19, 2013 at 1:35 am (#)

    Hi! I would use the camera to take pics of my family, especially my kids and all my animals and take pics of recipes I make. I’m into the food photography now! LOL!

  138. Jessie posted on March 19, 2013 at 7:39 am (#)

    I would photograph my daugters and our new baby on the way!

    I’m a senior in college, and I’ve been trying to document my final year and my graduation. I’d love to take some nice photos of the gorgeous campus and the graduation ceremony!

  140. Amy Tong posted on March 19, 2013 at 5:27 pm (#)

    I would use this camera to take pictures of my kids. They are growing up too quickly and I would love to take every moment to capture the wonderful memories with them.

    I would love to learn how to take better photos of my sweet little boy and to improve my blog photos!

    Wow, I loved my camera up until I broke 2years ago. Since then I have only been using my cell phone because helping to raise our grandson has limited the money we spend. Perfect timing he turns one April 23rd. Love your website I always find something to try on the weekend. Thanks

  144. Callie posted on March 20, 2013 at 4:47 am (#)

    I would use this camera for everything!!

  145. Kailyn G posted on March 20, 2013 at 7:14 pm (#)

    I would use it to shoot my 1.5 and 3.5 year old kiddos. Would love to document their lives with gret pics!

    I’ve been taking an online photography class, and would like to make some extra money with this hobby as I prepare for retirement.

  147. Tracy Gonzalez posted on March 21, 2013 at 12:41 pm (#)

    F1.8! I take shots of stuff I see every day on the way to work. Driving through the country we have barns, horses, fields of cotton, tobacco and sunflowers, deer in twilight and most of all I take photos of my six beautiful grandkids. (They are not on the side of the road on my way to work though!)

  148. Ragan posted on March 21, 2013 at 1:29 pm (#)

    What wouldn’t I photograph?! My daughter, my dog, my family! I have always been into photography (following my grandmother) but have never had the resources to buy a nice camera of my own!

  149. Renee posted on March 21, 2013 at 2:05 pm (#)

    Everything in sight….i tend be a shutterbug and am always snapping away!

  150. Dawn posted on March 21, 2013 at 3:10 pm (#)

    I’d use it to photograph everything, especially family vacations.

    I love Nikon, but my camera is really old, so would love an upgrade!

  152. Elisabeth posted on March 21, 2013 at 5:23 pm (#)

    I love to travel, this would be great to take trip photos!

  153. Laura posted on March 21, 2013 at 7:41 pm (#)

    I would love to upgrade to this camera and a better 35mm lens so I can work on my portraiture. Art school is expensive and I would really use this equipment to better my work as I’m trying to move into a professional field. I would worship those beauties, haha!

  154. PapaLos @ The Man, The Chef, The Dad posted on March 21, 2013 at 8:25 pm (#)

    I’ve never owned anything other than a point and shoot so I’m pretty sure I would literally sleep with this under my pillow if I won it. I’d use it for everything from my blog to freaking paint drying, it doesn’t matter, I know I’ll just love it!

    I would love to photograph my sweet 94 year old grandfather in crisp clear focus (blow up the photo to make a poster for his room) to celebrate him turning 94.5 this month!

  157. Amber posted on March 23, 2013 at 6:30 am (#)

    to capture the green growth of spring, the bright orange insides of a butternut squash, the giggly smiles and dancing eyes of my girls, farming and ranching mysteries unveiled before my city raised eyes…I do not go any where without my camera!

  158. Christy posted on March 23, 2013 at 7:34 am (#)

    My son is graduating from high school this year. Would love a new camera to capture all of the graduation memories!

  159. claire posted on March 23, 2013 at 7:40 am (#)

    I would start food blogging again!

    I would love to win! I’ve been dying to take a photography course, but I don’t have a camera, which is of course a requirement. You would make me sooo happy :)

    I am taking a digital photography class at our SUNY IT through a program that is called Mohawk Valley Learning in Retirement. It is open to all and they offer many courses each semester. One can take 4 core and unlimited “free” courses. I know at this point in my life that I have so much left to learn to do the best I can at the things I can do. Breathing is good at this stage in my life, but breathing while learning and applying the learning to everyday life is a gift. I have a habit of taking pictures of food, mine, others, and restaurants especially on vacation. I have passed this on to my daughter.. we’ve been chuckled at, laughed at and when we pose the food, well, patrons think we’re nuts. I love to take pictures of the beach each time we go to Longboat Key, the food there and just whatever catches my eye. I am now using myphone as my camera as the last camera bit the dust, literally. I think a grain of sand got into it and it is stuck. This would be great.

    I would use the camera to photograph my family.

  163. Lien posted on March 24, 2013 at 8:21 am (#)

    I would shoot covers with it to upload it on youtube <3
    and take lot's of pictures and post it on instagram & tumblr to get better solutions. xx

    I would photo my favorite things…family, friends, flowers and fun things to blog about. :)
    Many thanks! Cheers!

    I would use it to take photos of the Origami Owl Jewelry that I sell!! I love posting pics to my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/origamiowl.tellyourstory

    And I also love taking pics of food, especially cupcakes! Please pick me! :)

  166. Anastasia posted on March 24, 2013 at 11:26 pm (#)

    I would use the camera to take photos of my kids, and may be the food I make!

  169. Molly Allen posted on March 25, 2013 at 6:45 pm (#)

    I would use this nicer, better camera for my food photography, of course! :)

    Now that I am a famous cookbook author … well, a cookbook author anyway … I need a better camera for the photos.

  171. Henrietta posted on March 27, 2013 at 7:50 am (#)

    I would use it to photograph food, my kids, my granddaughter, my chickens and anything else that moves within my vicinity!

  172. heta s posted on March 29, 2013 at 11:16 am (#)

    we have a vacation coming to Egypt and I would use it for picturing that beautiful part of the world.

  174. heather c posted on March 30, 2013 at 7:40 am (#)

    I just signed up for a photography class, so I could use the camera to figure out my niche. Right now, I’d use the camera for blog pics.

  175. Kim Bumgardaner posted on March 30, 2013 at 2:24 pm (#)

    It would be such a blessing to win this camera and lens! I am a freelance photographer so I would shoot lots of memories with it! :)

  176. Mindy posted on March 31, 2013 at 8:15 am (#)

    It would be great to capture life moments and to allow me to start the blog I have been talking about!
    Have a great Easter and thanks for the site.
