Nikon D7100 Giveaway Winner

Today we are announcing the lucky winner of the Nikon D7100 Giveaway that we hosted until April 5, 2013. We had about 7500 candidates, but unfortunately, only one of them gets to win the camera. Rafflecopter, the platform we used for this contest generated a random number for us from the final list of candidates and the winner happens to be entrant #3818.

And the winner is (drums rolling) – Braden Goodwin! Here is his entry on our giveaway page:

Nikon D7100 Giveaway Winner

Congratulations to Braden for winning the giveaway! You will be hearing from me shortly.

If you did not happen to win, do not be disappointed, as we will be doing another giveaway pretty soon and this time it will be a Nikon D600 full-frame DSLR!

And to those who were mad at us for running a Facebook-only giveaway, please understand that these giveaways are done to gain more social media presence (which we really need). We are not the only site on the Internet that does this, so if you do not feel like you want to participate, just skip our social media giveaway posts. If you do not have a Facebook or Twitter accounts, you can wait for our photography contests, which we will also host in the near future…

    Hi everyone,

    Wow, I don’t even know what to say. I just came to Photography Life to read any new posts and I see this! Thank you so much Nasim and everyone here on the site. Honestly I would have been happy even if I wasn’t chosen, I have learned so much about photography from this community; that alone has been a great reward.

    I will do my best to put the D7100 through its paces! I can’t wait to learn more about it first hand through using it.

    I look forward to hearing from you soon Nasim to organize this.

    And best of luck to everyone else in the future giveaways!

      Braden, I sent you an email this morning. Please let me know if you have received it. Congrats one more time!

        Hi Nasim,

        Maybe my anti-virus filtered your email out. I just got an email notification about your reply to my post here. However that email says not to reply to it.

        Is there an email that I should add as a safe sender? I have just made the domain a safe sender.

        Thank you very much for your assistance!

    Hey congrats Braden!!!
    A famous photo blogger that goes by the initials K R is crazy about this cameras percormance so far. He really likes the image quality too. That’s saying a lot since he’s been spending the last few months trasbing Nikons latest bodies; i.e. D600, D800. So it must be a pretty nice camera. I’m trading in my D 7000 as soon as I get the bugs worked out of it. My D 700’s a lifetime keeper. Enjoy it.

    Look forward to the D600 pressie, would love to win that as I already have some FX lenses lined up, but being used on a D90 at the moment). I hope these give-aways are not just for your US based audience :-)

    Nasim, with all the interest generated about the D7100 during the contest, I wonder when you think you will have time to write a review of the D7100 itself? You have a lot of photo fans who are anticipating your insightful analysis on this camera, and before I buy one I want to hear your say. Thanks.

    ooohhh.. due to my busy sked, I never knew there was a give away… waiting for the next :) lol
