Fuji X-E1 Giveaway

We were so impressed by the Fuji X-E1 (see our detailed review) that we decided it is time to give one away. Once again, we are happy to announce yet another giveaway for our loyal readers. As before, this is a Facebook giveaway designed to increase our presence in social media. And as before, this giveaway is open to anyone, not just US residents.

Photography Life Fuji X-E1 Giveaway (mobile)

Here is how to enter this contest:

  1. Visit the giveaway Facebook page
  2. Click “Like” to reveal the entry form. If you are already our fan, the form will appear automatically.
  3. Type your email address in the form – we only need it to contact you so that you can claim your prize. If you authorized the “Sweepstakes” app, there is no need to enter the email address – your Facebook profile will be used instead.
  4. Once you click “Enter”, you will be entered for the giveaway.
  5. You can invite your Facebook friends to participate in this giveaway as well to increase your chances of winning. For every friend that enters this contest, you gain an additional bonus entry. Number of referrals is unlimited!

The “Sweepstakes” app might request access to your public profile, friends list and likes – this is needed to get your name and contact info. Likes are needed to verify that you indeed liked our page, while your friends list is used to give you bonus entries. Please note that the app does NOT access any other information in your Facebook account. You can verify this by seeing the App authorization.

Some restrictions apply to non-US participants:
Some countries have tax and other regulations for camera equipment, while others are extremely expensive to ship to. While we will do our best to ship the package internationally, if the cost of sending the package is extremely high or if there are other complications, we will have to give a choice to the winner – either to pay for all the extra expenses, or accept a gift card equivalent to the prize from our trusted partner B&H Photo Video.

Note that those of our readers that do not have a Facebook account are also eligible to participate. Just leave a comment below with your contact info and we will include you for the giveaway.

We will announce a random winner on December 25, 2013 to make it a great Christmas present from us! Good luck!

    ) Neil

    Yes, thank you for letting us non-facebook people participate. :) I have “compensated” for the lack of exposure by linking to some of your articles in places. So linkbacks can be pretty valuable. Especially on some of the Fuji forums I participate on.

    The X-E1 is a fun camera to use. I think if people gave it some time and practice they’d find more fun using it than a DSLR.
