People at Home ? Portraits
The results are in for the sixth round of APOY.
Andrew Wood, of Bristol, is the winner of our People at home round of APOY 2011. Andrew will receive Canon?s 18-million-pixel EOS 600D with an EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens, plus a PIXMA MG8150 all-in-one inkjet printer and three packs of PP-201 A4 Photo Paper Plus Glossy, worth a total of £1,307.97.
The EOS 600D offers full HD (1080p) video recording, up to 3.7fps continuous shooting and a 3in, 1.04-million-dot, vari-angle LCD screen. An ISO range of 100-6400, expandable to 12,800, enables high-quality handheld shooting in low-light conditions without the need for flash. 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 Mark Darlington, of Chesterfield in Derbyshire, who will receive Canon?s IXUS 115 HS, a PIXMA MG6150 inkjet Wi-Fi all-in-one printer and two packs of PP-201 A4 Photo Paper Plus Glossy worth a total of £397.98. With an HS system that is great for low-light shots, the stylish, metal-bodied IXUS 115 HS is a fantastic digital compact camera.
