Congratulations to Angel B. of Elizabeth, NJ! You've won the Verizon Nikon D3000 Giveaway!

Celebrate the Holidays with a New Nikon D3000!

Sponsored by Verizon

Nikon D3000

Nikon D3000

• 10.2-Megapixel DX-format Image Sensor
• 18-55mm Zoom-NIKKOR VR IS Lens
• 3-inch Color LCD monitor
• Continuous Shooting up to 3 FPS
• In-camera Image Editing

Just in time for the holidays, Verizon is sponsoring a giveaway of a Nikon D3000 10.2 megapixel digital SLR camera. Valued at $549, the Nikon D3000 makes capturing high-quality family photos a cinch.

However, sharing those treasured holiday memories can be a tedious task without a fast reliable Internet connection. Remember, your Internet connection isn’t really fast unless it’s fast both up and down. And it’s the upstream speed that makes photo-sharing quick and easy. 

The FiOS Advantage

Consider this: With the FiOS upload speed of 15 Mbps, you can post 20 digital photos (approximately 50 megabytes) to your Facebook or your favorite photo-sharing site in about 25 seconds, while it takes a cable 2 Mbps upload speed more than 3 minutes. When you start talking about posting home videos of 500 MB or larger, the speed advantage of FiOS over cable becomes even more dramatic.

Another factor contributing to a “dragging” Internet, which in-turn makes uploading photos a chore, can be that cable Internet is shared by hundreds of users. FiOS Internet is shared by no more than 32 users for a consistently fast Internet experience.

What’s the bottom-line? Know your Internet speeds and, more specifically, make sure your upload speeds are fast, consistent and reliable. Without a doubt, Verizon’s top-rated FiOS Internet offers the fastest upload speeds available, making memory sharing quick and easy. To learn more about FiOS and find out if it is available in your area, visit www.verizon.com or www.factsonfios.com.

Want to check your Internet speed? Test your real-time connection speed here and then compare it to Verizon FiOS.

I would love to receive the camera!  I have breast and bone cancer, and the doctors are not sure how long I have to live.  It sure would be nice to capture pictures of my loved ones (including, of course, pets!) and favorite scenery.  It would really be the greatest thing.  Thank you!

I’d use the Nikon D3000 to photograph Japanese influenced “Nawa Shibari” pictures. Tokyo’s Araki is my inspiration…
