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 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:

Fuji X-E1 Winner

The winning number is #3456, who happens to be Charles Lennox from California, USA!


Congratulations Charles! Your present will be on its way to California tomorrow. I will personally make sure to update the X-E1 and the 18-55mm lens to the latest firmware, inspect and test it for your future use.

For everyone else that did not win, we will be starting another giveaway very soon for your chance to win more presents from Photography Life!

    REALLY? The winning number was 3456? What 1234 was already taken?

    Just thought that was a funny coincidence. Congratulations to the winner.
