I have no idea why they would have a photo contest, seeing as the 3DS has a terrible camera. Eh, still I would have some fun taking photos for a contest. GO NINTENDO!!! :D

Is the 3D contest based on the 3DS? Well, I do agree with above, the 3ds camera is horrible. But, photographing aint my hobby, so I sort of use it as a casual camera.

@Arkhandar Yeah I spotted that, took a look around to see if there were any other subdomains but couldn't find any, and NintendoNetwork.net just goes to Nintendo.com. Still, looks like a step forward :)

Why is other eu countries than these always excluded. Just like their Club Nintendo. I feel discriminated for not living the right place..

That may just be the most hilarious picture subtitle I've seen on all you guys' sites. @1 Yeah, me neither, but like I learned when I tried the Vita's camera, it's not the quality of the picture, it's the feeling and thought it strikes in the viewer's mind. I reckon yet.

The 3DS camera is hit or miss. Taking pictures inside turns images into a disgusting mess of regurgitated pixels, but pictures at broad daylight can be incredibly beautiful, specially with the use of some of the camera's filters.

Now, even though I can't enter it, I'm curious as how is this contest going to be handled. Can you send pictures through Swapnote or something?

smart move nintendo! i've almost never even used the 3DS camera! even if i dont live in the required area to participate, it's still a neat idea that would get me using it if it had a topic! all i really used the 3DS camera for was recording me beating Zelda II. i dont see why i SHOULDNT do this even if i live in america. shoot, i could make a contest with my buddies on swapnote if i wanted to.

This is the first time I notice that guy is actually using a Cobalt Blue 3DS and not a normal Aqua Blue 3DS.
