January 1, 1914, marks a very special day in history. It was then that former St. Petersburg, Florida, mayor Abram C. Pheil became the world’s first paying passenger on a commercial flight. In partnership with Flying100Years.com — which is celebrating the 100th anniversary of the world’s first commercial flight through flight-related conversations, contests and stories — I’m offering the chance to win a FREE Canon IXUS 265 HS camera (a $200 value). This is the perfect piece of gear for any traveler who wants to take sharp and dynamic images on the road with a camera that takes up almost no space.
Some feature highlights include:
- 12x optical zoom
- 16 megapixel CMOS sensor
- Optical image stabilisation sensor (great for low light situations!)
- 3inch LCD screen optimized for dark and bright light visibility
- HD video capabilities
