#WIN a Canon 1200D DC Kit in our guide to capturing unmissable moments!

***Competition now closed – Thank you for entering*** Now the nights are getting longer and the days colder, it means Christmas isn’t that far away! Dinner’s in with the girls and hilarious days out in the snow, not to mention you can pull out your favourite pair of boots and gorgeous scarves… what more could be better!

Here at Very HQ we love winter! For the fashion, for the celebrations but mostly for the chance to have those romantic nights in by the fire. With all this to look forward to, what better accessory to your winter than a camera.

Whether it’s remembering those hilarious nights around the fire with the girls or romantic weekend walks, the perfect camera will help you capture every moment, making sure it will last forever! The only problem is, which to choose?

No fear girls! To help you pick the perfect camera to suit you, we’ve created this handy Camera Event, to make sure you’re always only a click away from fabulous snaps that will last forever.

Sony and Canon

At Very HQ, we’ve been testing out some of this years best cameras. From Nikon to GoPro, a couple of our ultimate favourites are the Sony H400 and the Canon 1200D.

Whether you’re helping plan the birthday of the year or just wanting to capture every moment of your best friend’s special day, the Sony H400 is the ideal camera. With great superzoom to capture every detail and a popup flash, it’s the perfect camera for wherever the night takes you!

If your sights are on capturing more than just perfect photos for everyday activities, the Canon 1200D is undoubtedly the camera for you. Although it’s compact in size it has the ability to perform like a professional camera but at a fraction of the price. With 18 megapixels it makes easy work of capturing your best friends wedding, that hilarious night out but also those incredible travelling shots you want to last a life time.

All that’s left for you to do now is to go and get one and bring your memories to life! If you’re still having trouble choosing (we know we are!) check out our nifty Camera Guide to help show you the way.

Last but not least! To help you get into the creative spirit we’re giving away a Canon 1200D camera to help you become the pro photographer you’ve always wanted!! All you have to do is comment below telling us how this beauty of a camera will lighten your winter days?

Good Luck!

This lovely camera would lighten my winter days by allowing me to take snaps of the lovely scenery I see on the journey to work each day as well as family pictures for all the great stuff due to happen – halloween, fireworks, Christmas concerts, Christmas Day and my birthday!! To many ways it would be used to list them all. Hope to win and be cheered up 🙂

When Winter comes I’d like to hide
But with 3 kids, I have to swallow my pride.
There’s no hiding here, there’s adventures to be had.
Come rain or snow, Feeling ill or bad.
Tree climbing, Leaf fights, Snow Sledding, Riding bikes.
Forest Adventures, Snowball Fights, Hot Cocoa , Cosy nights.
SO many memories being made every day.
A camera like this would capture them along the way!
