Welcome to a (last minute) January Vintage Lens Giveaway. It almost didn’t happen this month, but I just had to do it, because I told you guys many times that it’s my goal to do them every month.
So this time round I’m giving away a Helios 44-2 58mm f/2.0 prime lens which is a great lens for low light, archiving a very nice, shallow depth of field and beautiful, dreamy flares. It’s one of my favorite vintage lenses and I use it as much as I can, I simply love it and have 3 of them myself. I know that a lot of you guys love this lens as well. You can check out my test video for this lens here and here is the music video I’ve mostly shot with this lens.
The condition of the lens is quite good. It’s not in mind condition, so focusing ring is a little stiff at one end, but overall it’s a very usable lens which you’ll enjoy a lot.
Rules, Terms & Condition for the Giveaway:
To manage the whole giveaway I’m using a I’m a rafflecopter.com to help me track all the entries and make things clearer.
Entering is very simple as before, all you need to do is complete 1 of 8 steps below. To qualify for 1 entree you only need to complete 1 point, but completing all more will more pointes, hence give you higher chance of winner. Please note, that the winner will NOT be chosen by the amount of point. The extra points will just give extra entries: 1 point = 1 entree, 2 points = 2 entries, 3 points + 3 entries, etc.
To earn yourself extra entries you can also tweet the message shown in the widget below once every day, just make sure that you do it through rafflecopter widget below. Any entries made in any other way will not be entered into competition, only the ones processed through rafflecopter.
The giveaway is open to everyone, everywhere. I will post it anywhere in the world for free, so don’t let you location stop you from entering; previous winners included people from US, Canada, Italy, Algeria and other countries! I will try to post the lens by a recorded postal service, which will require a signature on delivery (depending on location of the winner), but in an unfortunate event of the lens going missing in transit, I will not be held responsible and no alternative prize will be offered. Fortunately this has never happened and hopefully will not.
Good luck to everyone entering.
