This month we’re giving away an easy-to-use, yet sophisticated, camera-lens kit. It will follow your fast-moving little ninjas, capturing them in fine detail even when they are far away. The kit makes smooth movies, too. For a chance to win a Canon EOS 800 + 18-135 S GB lens, send your favourite photo featuring Dad and kid/s to us by midnight 10th July 2018. We’ll choose the winning image, share it here, and put the winner’s camera in the post just in time for the holidays.
