I am a total nerd and I am not ashamed to admit it. I love technology. Computers, code, graphic design, photography, and even typography… I love it all! There are two “techy” things that I wanted for Mother’s Day this year. The first was a Compact System Camera with a long zoom lens. I’ve also been drooling over the Samsung Galaxy Tablets. I wanted something bigger than my smart phone, but small enough to stuff into a purse.
When I spotted the Samsung NX1100 Camera/ Tablet Bundle I knew it was exactly what I wanted! Why just settle on one when I can get both at a great price?
This bundle is a great deal! I priced the Samsung NX1100 with the 18-55mm lens at other stores (which did not have a bundle option). They were actually more expensive than what I paid for the bundle. I couldn’t believe it! I was very impressed with the selection that Sam’s Club had.
You can see the rest of my shopping trip on Google Plus.
The Samsung NX1100 was super fast to set up and easy to use right out of the box. I was very impressed with the quality of pictures that I was able to take with this camera! This camera has it all. It even has Adobe Lightroom free! The manual controls are a plus and I love that you have more than one lens choice! If you need a portable DSLR “like” camera or want to upgrade from a regular point and shoot I recommend this one! It may be a silly thing, but I also love that it is white!
I have been very impressed with the natural light pictures I have taken with this camera (like the one above)!
The flash was actually less harsh than I thought it would be! Since this camera has a hot shoe you have more options than the one that comes with it too! The camera also does well in low light photography.
The Samsung Galaxy 2 7.0 Tablet was equally impressive. I was amazed at how easy it was to figure out even with all the buttons and bells! This is a major plus for me because I don’t like to spend hours trying to figure out how to use my latest piece of technology! So far I love all the apps that I get, but I may just have to get my kids a separate one so I can use this one! ;) Kindle is SO much easier to read on my tablet than my phone! That is a BIG plus!
I do love a bouquet of flowers and nothing can beat a hand written card, but technology is my playground! I am having fun with my new toys for Mother’s Day! :)
