    ...what will be the first person, place or thing that will be in it's viewfinder? :p

    If i win, and it being March it'll be most likely a neighbourhood called, "The Beaches"...there's a boardwalk, it's own parking lot cafe, a yacht being UNDER 25' and a quaint main street filled with shops and little eateries...then off of that there is a water treatment plant, postal station, skate park and a Fire training station and that's pretty much the stroll...oh and lots of characters and things like that too.

    So, what will be on your SD when you win the Fujifilm X20?

    If the authorities would permit me, I would attempt to take photos of the ongoing recovery from Hurricane Sandy along the Jersey Shore.

    I'd probably drop dead because I never win anything. But my estate would for sure love the camera.

    Mine will be the ceiling as I will have fainted with shock and still on my back when I open the box, insert battery & card then take first photo.............once my shock is over I will shoot either street or landscape for B&W conversion.

    Still, with my luck I have more chance of winning the lottery!! - still live in hope though

    new camera in my house? That's easy. The first thing is the bathroom mirror self-portrait to document the camera's existence. Then a few dog shots, then make the cats pose for ANOTHER new camera. Then maybe a walk along the lakefront or a hike down some familiar trails to look for something new.

    If I were to win a new X20, I'd probably donate my current X10 to the local Veteran's Center where they teach basic photography workshops to disabled vets. Or, you know...I'd do that dog and cat thing.

    In the unlikely event the X20 prize comes my way, the first image will be my 6 year old daughter with missing front teeth.

    Funny you should say that. When I got my X10 last year the first photos I took were a series of pictures of my then 6-year-old daughter when she lost her front teeth:

    Me buying a lottery ticket because I NEVER win anything so I would need to milk as much good fortune out of my mojo before it disappears again.

    Mine (If I am lucky enough to win!) will be taking a trip to the UK when I go with my mum in June to see her brother that she hasn't seen in 48 years!

    You guys won't be taking any pics because IT WILL BE MINE!!!!! :cool:

    And the first pic that will come out of that nifty camera is my house (better pics = will sell faster). :D

    When :) I win the X20 the first pictures will probably be of my kids (or one of them). But if I'm really lucky,
    I'll grab a shot of my wife looking irritated that I am pointing a camera at her again!

    Somewhat inevitably, the first shot if I were to win would be of Tom... poor little beggar, he's seriously over cameras and now looks away if I take too long.

    Here's the first off the X100

    If I win, first shots would be to share some of my city skylines and places.

    JJJPhoto -- that _is_ funny. Cute girl! It was while taking a simple posed photo of my daughter with missing teeth and a snowman that finally tipped me over the edge about my Canon G10's speed and handling (annoyances with both).

    If my old spaniel is still going (and to be honest it's touch and go) I'll get some good close ups of that grizzled old nose while I can... after that a trip to Burslem for some atmospheric B&W industrial decay shots.
