My New Toy – How I Won A GoPro Hero Camera

Meet my new toy – a GoPro Hero camera. I have just received it from Friso Singapore for winning the Father’s Day Giveaway Contest. I am honoured to be one of the 3 winners selected.

father's day

Special thanks and credit goes to my wife Amily who suggested that I write something for our children. To celebrate Father’s Day, I had to write a message to them, sharing my thoughts or reminisce on the memories that I hold.

I also want to take this opportunity to congratulate the other 2 winners, Eddy and Thomas. Eddy and I have also become Facebook friends through this contest.


 

I want to share how I won this contest.

Firstly, taking part of the contest was not an issue. I just had to write a comment about our children and post it on Friso page, on the contest post.

The question is how can I win the contest?

I must admit I would love to win it, simply because it’s a GoPro… but I am not sure if I can? There will be so many participants. Maybe there are better entries? Should I forget it? These are just some of the thoughts that ran through my mind.

So I thought about it – do I want to win the camera or do I only want to take part in the contest?

I made a decision. I wanted to express my love for my children, and win the camera too.

So I thought of my message very carefully.

Firstly, my intent had to be very clear – I want to win the camera so I must write to win.

Secondly, the message must definitely demonstrate my love for them. Winning is one thing but the true intention and meaning of this contest is to show my love for my children so this is super important. It must also demonstrate what example I want to show to them as a parent.

Thirdly, I must write to impress the judges.

With these in mind, I sat to craft and write my thoughts, my message, my love. I wrote, and I thought, then I rewrote, amended, read and reread, edited and re-edited and finally, I attached a photo and submitted my message. You can see the message in this post.

I am glad my efforts paid off, and I shall begin to take and share awesome videos with my new toy.

 

From this I learned that if you set your mind to doing something, you must begin with the end in mind. When you do that, and when you are absolutely clear of the outcome, your potential will be unleashed and eventually, you will achieve your goal. I am absolutely thrilled in winning this gift and also proud that I have made the decision to give my best. I am also thankful to my wife for believing in me.

I will be sharing videos taking with the camera. Meanwhile, do check out this video to see what it can do.

    Among these entire programs friend invite program has really
    managed to gain more attention. Plus, the camera
    can take up to 9 MP still images, and it’s relatively light a 2 pounds.
    It fits in your hand easily and the buttons are pretty self explanatory.

  • Howdy superb blog! Does running a blog such as this take a
    lot of work? I have very little knowledge of programming
    however I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future.

    Anyways, if you have any suggestions or tips for new blog owners please share.
    I understand this is off subject nevertheless I just
    needed to ask. Thanks!

      Blogging ‘work’ depends largely on your purpose of the blog. Is it to share your personal thoughts or to make some money online. There are lots of information you can find online. I suggest you can start following some blogs that may interest you and start with the free platforms. The key to starting anything is to simply start first and learn along the way.

      Hope this helps.

    To record in slow motion cinema (720p) option, it takes either thirty or sixty frames per second.

    We can make our own movies, we don’t need a professional film company.

    This camera developed over time, going from 35mm to digital, where they started recording
    10-second clips, to 3-megapixel digital cameras, to its existing configuration of fixed-lens HD video cameras with a wide 170-degree angle.
