MCPB Updates 3

Update, everyone! Today, I received the money sent by ma’am ianne and it was all that we needed to reach the target! Wow! With money in hand, my mom and I checked out every camera store in SM for the perfect camera. Most of them were from Php 20,000 to Php 70,000. So, I was kinda worried that I might have to wait a little longer to be able to get a new camera. We left SM feeling a little down. So we just decided to drop by JY Square to grab some lunch. But lo and behold! JY has a Kodak Center selling digital cameras! Yep! And are we just lucky or what? This little baby was sitting by the counter waiting for a lucky stranger to bring her home!

Camphone shots of KODAK P712 [12x Zoom:7.1 MP] How awesome!

What’s in the box

I’ll name her Lacey.

Officially, she’s a Kodak P712 EasyShare.

  1. Wow!!! that’s a very good camera, good on you Ley.
    Sorry for not sending my share, im having difficulties here.
    Tingbon nalang sa January ha.

    Thanks to those generous people, who help Leyland,
    and especially Ianne it’s her idea.

    Well done and cheers to you all.

  2. CONGRATULATIONS, LEYLAN!! I am so very happy for you! Enjoy your Lacey.=) Thank God you received my mail safely. It was a gamble, I know it’s not wise to do that (cash in the mail)due to theft. LOL

    Inday Myrna, it was Nana Yanna’s idea!=)

  3. yep. i got it gyud mam ianne. hehehe. wala man hilabti. hehehe.

    yey! if wala pa lang ko test ugma, adto gyud unta ko ug Simala sa Sibonga.

    but still, i’m VERY happy.



  4. good luck ley and hinaot nga dili nimo mahikalimtan ang imong pagtuon sa imong pagka abogasya sa kadaghan sa imong atimanunon karon (cebuphoto, mycebuphoto, dyokdyok, forum, SSC ug uban pa….) at least, during the Grand Eye Ball karong January, kumpleto na sa gamit, ma ka update na pod ang mga bisdaks especially katong nahilayo sa nasod sa pagka karon……ayo ayo….

  5. Nice Cam bai! this is quite an upgrade from your old kodak. i have a similar camera like yours, but of different make. i have a Canon S3 IS. just like your new Kodak, it has a 12x zoom (not to mention the digital zoom0- although i dont use the digital zoom that much, or not at all). you will be amazed on how powerful the 12x zoom is πŸ™‚ anyway, enjoy shooting and keep on posting hehehe. congrats again!

  6. nindot na ni siya nga comera bai. you will have more control on how you will take/compose your pictures. you have options/controls on its Manual mode, Aperture Priority, Shutter Speed Priority, etc. mura napud ug dslr πŸ™‚ except, di lang pwede ma ilisan ug lens and some other stuff. by the way, bai, are you a member na of Digital Photographer Philippines? if not, i suggest you join. you can register at, its free. or you can join/visit, there you can see the shots taken by the exact same model of your camera, taken by people around the world, and discuss it or even ask for tips and techniques πŸ™‚ anyway, just a suggestion. keep on shooting!

  7. Hi Ley, correction im here in Australia.
    Sure visit jud ko perme pra feel at home pod ko.

    Nana Yanna, i have to apologise to you, im very sorry.
    I thought it was ianne’s idea. But she said it was yours.
    Anyway you had a smart thinking about that fundraising.
    Good on you, cheers
