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,,,, and, 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 to pick the lucky winner and it looks like the winner is…

Fstoppers PL Winner

Entry #1732, which happens to be Christopher Lazarro (see his Facebook page). I have already exchanged some emails with Chris earlier today and his choice is the Canon 6D. He told me that he really wanted to buy the 6D over the holidays, so he is very excited to win one. Congratulations Chris! You will be receiving your prize from us very soon.

Big thanks to everyone for participating in this giveaway. Happy Holidays!

    Have you taken all Hotmail mail addresses as fake or only genuine fake ones? Just asking because my mail address is also from Hotmail.

      Yeah, exactly, did you clear all the Hotmail account or only the genuine fake one? Because I’m also register under a hotmail account.

        Only the suspected fakes

    • December 27, 2013 at 12:23 am

      No no, only the fake ones. There were so many fake email accounts, it was crazy! Things like, and the numbers just incremented (with hundreds of referrals using the same accounts). The worst abusers were from the Russian domains like,,, etc – thousands of those that I had to clean up.

      So don’t worry, other accounts were not touched :) I had to do this to make it fair for everyone. Would hate to see a spammer win.

    I was just thinking about getting the 6D over the holidays but I couldn’t swing it financially.

    This truly ends my year off FANTASTIC.

    Thank You at Photography Life and Fstoppers.
