APOY 2012 Round 4 Results – At Dawn and Dusk

Guido Milian, of Miami Springs in Florida, USA, is the winner of our At Dawn and Dusk round of APOY 2012. Guido will receive a Samsung NX200 with 20-50mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens, a Samsung 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 lens, a Samsung ED-SEF15A flash and a 16MB SDHC Plus memory card, worth a total of £1,598.96. The NX200 is a compact system camera with a 20.3-million- pixel, APS-C CMOS sensor. It has high-speed capture (7fps) and ultra-fast autofocus (100ms), while the ISO range of 100-12,800 lets you take high-speed photos even in low light. Samsung’s 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 telephoto zoom has a 35mm viewing-angle equivalent of 27-300mm, and is ideal for both long-distance landscapes and incredible close-ups.

Our second-placed winner is Derek Hansen, of Northfleet in Kent, who will receive a Samsung WB850F compact camera and a 16MB SDHC Plus memory card, worth a total of £288.98. The WB850F travel compact has a 16-million-pixel, BSI (Back Side Illuminated) CMOS sensor to help reduce image noise and distortion, even in low-light conditions, and a 21x optical zoom lens (23-483mm equivalent). The Samsung WB850F also has built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, so users can email photos and share them quickly and easily.
