Nikon D610 / Canon 6D / Sony A7 Giveaway Winner

Thanks to our friends at Fstoppers, we also organized a Nikon D610 / Canon 6D / Sony A7 Giveaway, which ended on Christmas, just like our Fuji X-E1 kit giveaway (congrats to Charles Lennox once again!). This giveaway was much bigger than the Fuji one, because we received a total of 33523 entries (Facebook and non-Facebook participants combined). Actually, the number was much bigger than that (over 40K), but all those were fake accounts that were disqualified. With all the fake email addresses from yahoo.de, inbox.ru, mail.ru, bk.ru, gmail.com and hotmail.com, and a boatload of freshly created Facebook accounts, it took me a while to clean up the list to make it fair to all real participants.

Well, it is now time to announce the lucky winner, who gets to pick his favorite camera. Once again, we are using the services of random.org to pick the lucky winner and it looks like the winner is…

And the Fuji X-E1 Kit Winner Is…

Our giveaway for the Fuji X-E1 + 18-55mm lens kit is now over. While I thought I could manage to pick a winner last night, sorting through all the comments (for non-Facebook participants) and entering them into a spreadsheet and then eliminating all the fake entries (there were many!) took me a while for both giveaways that are taking place. Lastly, I had to contact the winners and get their response for confirmation purposes. As before, I used the services of random.org to pick a random winner among all of our readers and Facebook fans. The total number of entries for this particular contest were 9373. So with the drums rolling, let’s see who the winner is:

Nikon D610 / Canon 6D / Sony A7 Giveaway

We are very excited to announce yet another great Facebook giveaway and this time we are partnering up with our friends at Fstoppers to do it. The winner will have a chance to choose between three different cameras: Nikon D610, Canon 6D or the new Sony A7 full-frame mirrorless camera! We are approaching the end of the year, so we decided to give this one away on the Christmas Day, similar to what we are doing with our Fuji X-E1 giveaway. So you have exactly one month to participate in this awesome contest! The contest is open for everyone, not just US residents.

The Winner of the Nikon D800 / Canon 5D Mark III Giveaway

It has been long, but the winner is here! We had a total of 6114 eligible participants in this giveaway. Since this was a Facebook giveaway, most of the participants were from Facebook. However, thanks to the feedback that we received from our readers, we also manually included those that complained about not having Facebook accounts from our giveaway page. After eliminating some of the duplicate entries (174 people were disqualified as a result), I pulled up all the names on an Excel spreadsheet, then typed 1-6114 at random.org, which gave me the lucky number – 839:
