Canon has been a competition to the Nikon in their DSLR range of cameras and it's on the personal choice of the amateur or professional photographer which one he likes the best. I don't have any DSLR from any of the two brands at the moment but I do have a lot of promotional goodies from both the brands.
Makro is the gaint retail outlet in South Africa, it's the Walmart of SA and it's run by them only. Walmart has three brands here in SA - Makro, GAME and Dion Wired. Makro do offers a lot of deals from time to time and I have always benefitted from them. I did bought my iPAD3 32gb wifi at the lowest price possible from there in one of their clearances sale.
Last time I was at Makro, Canon DSLR Cameras and Home Photo Printers had setup a canopy showcasing their products and also offered to get yourself clicked by their 650D camera. They then were printing your snaps using the small printer and was giving them out to you as hard copy. As I love myself much more than anything else so I never let go of any such chances where someone is so ready to take photographs of me.
I brought more of my friends to get their snaps clicked also and Canon offered me a great Muffin from Fournos Bakery along with a goodie bag for my gesture towards their setup. Goodies bag included a cap, notepad and a pen endorsed by Canon in their Red and white colours.
Thanks a lot Canon and looking forward to getting a DSLR sponsored so that I can tag the same in all my posts and keep up the brands flag flying high. Follow then on twitter for a lot of contests and prizes @Canon_SA
