The results are in for the seventh round of APOY.
Sandra ten Zijtoff, of Ecuador, is the winner of our Away from home round of APOY 2011.
Sandra will receive Canon?s EOS 60D with an EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens worth a total of £1,299.99. With its 18-million-pixel APS-C sensor and standard ISO range of 100-6400, extendable to 12,800, the EOS 60D captures high levels of detail with minimal noise in low-light conditions.
A nine-point autofocus (AF) system provides swift and accurate focusing, while the 7.7cm (3in) vari-angle wide LCD monitor offers added flexibility. The EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS is an ideal general-purpose standard zoom that provides great performance in low-light conditions.
Our second-placed winner is Jarrod Castaing, of London, who will receive Canon?s 14.1-million-pixel PowerShot SX30 IS digital compact camera worth £429. With its 24mm ultra-wide, 35x optical zoom lens, the PowerShot SX30 IS provides full manual control, HD movie recording, and many other creative and automatic shooting modes.
