Win a Kodak Digital Camera — the SAME camera Malia Obama used to capture the Inauguration!

Spring is just around the corner, or so the meteorologists promise. Are you ready for those Spring Break trips, Spring recitals and concerts, and first Little League games? More so, are you ready to capture those memories forever? Kodak is here to help!

Whether you are attending your daughters first ballet recital or you are Malia Obama capturing your dad’s Inauguration, Kodak offers a great digital camera that will make your photo capturing worries a thing of the past.

(Yes — this is the same camera model that Malia Obama chose to capture the Inauguration! And we are giving it to one of YOU!)

The Kodak EASYSHARE M893 IS is the perfect digital camera for a family who is on the go. The M893 IS is small enough to fit in your pocket or beach bag without sacrificing any of the quality. The M893 IS shoots photos at 8.1 mega pixels and can produce stunning prints up to 30 x 40 in. That is a lot of high quality family photos!

The M893 IS features:

  • 3X optical zoom lens
  • Image stabilization and blur reduction technology
  • HD still capture
  • Face detection technology that locates faces and automatically adjusts camera settings
  • Large 2.7 inch LCD color display for viewing and showing off your pictures!

The Kodak EASYSHARE M893 IS is available in five stunning colors: silver, black, red, blue, and purple. Purple happened to be Malia’s choice as she snapped photos at the Presidential Inauguration.

Kodak is generously offering an EASYSHARE M893 IS digital camera to one of our lucky readers!

    I could use this for my college kid; maybe he would then send us a picture of himself studying. Ha.

  2. Kelly Kozlowsky says

    Malia looked to be really enjoying the moment and capturing ALL those moments for her dad on that camera. It would interesting to see her perspective one day.

  48. says

    I’d love to win this for my daughter. We purchased a Fuji camera for her, last April for her 12th birthday. 6 months later, through no fault of her own, the lcd screen cracked. Fuji would not honor the warranty, and so now she has a useless camera. Hoping Kodak is better than that!

  77. Maggie M says

    Our (cheap) digital camera broke over Christmas, SO I SO need a decent digital camera to take pictures of my darling graddaughters. I have always wanted a Kodak Easyshare. I’ve heard nothing but great things about it and it’s ease of use. Thanks for having this wonderful giveaway.

  78. says

    Although I admit I don’t care what she used to film her Dads ceremony, I was indeed, actually just surfing BestBuy tonight for over an hour looking at CAMERAS! LOL. The lens won’t open on mine without hooking my fingernail in the little slot and wiggling it to get it to open so winning this would be awesome!

  79. Mia J. says

    This is such a great prize. I so need a new camera. My old one is on the fritz. Thanks for the chance.
