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’m a subscriber.  Thanks for the chance to win such a sweet camera—it’s a shutterbug’s wish list item for sure, and would make a much nicer gift for my photo-obsessed sister than anything I can afford to give her on a student’s budget.  Thanks a lot!

I am a current email subscriber.  Both my husband and I studied photography at RIT.  We both are passionate about photography and love to work on our own personal documentary projects.  But, ever since we started having a family, and we are at 3 young children right now, we have not been able to spend the $$$ on updating our photography equipment.  We used to feel like we were using the best equipment out there in order to capture the most compelling images, but now we feel very much “out of the loop” when it comes to even being close to having adequate equipment.  Some of our cameras won’t even hold a charge anymore because the batteries have gone on us.  We would love nothing more than to own this amazing Nikon D3000 digital SLR DREAM CAMERA!  It would really motivate us to start capturing those candid moments of our children and resume our documentary work!  Thanks so much for the chance to enter and Happy Holidays to ALL!!
