Welcome to a (very last minute) February Vintage Lens Giveaway. Again almost didn’t happen, but I just had to do it anyway, because I told you guys many times, my goal to do them every month.
So this time round I’m giving away a Rikenon 50mm f/2.0 prime lens which is a great lens for low light, capable of producing some amazing images with beautiful bokeh and very interesting flares. If you haven’t seen this lens in action, check out my test video for this lens here.
The condition of the lens is quite good. Some paint loss on the markings, but optics, aperture blades function properly and clean and focusing ring is smooth. No lens caps are included, but if I find any suitable ones, I’ll add them to it.
Rules, Terms & Condition for the Giveaway:
To manage the whole giveaway I’m using a rafflecopter.com to help me track all the entries and make things clearer.
Entering is very simple, all you need to do is complete 1 of 10 steps below. To qualify for 1 entree you only need to complete 1 step, but completing all more step will give you more entrees, hence give you higher chance of winner. Please note, that the winner will NOT be chosen by the amount of entrees. The extra completed steps will simply give you higher chance of being picked. You can get up to 10 entrees + you can earn yourself extra entries with a daily tweet, 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. I will post it anywhere in the world for free, so don’t let your location stop you from entering; previous winners included people from US, Netherlands, 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.
Important: The Winner must contact me via my website/Facebook/Twitter/Youtube/Vimeo/email within 2 weeks of the Winner Announcement Video. If I’m not contacted within 2 weeks, I will have to pick a new winner. The reason for doing this is due to some people entering who just enter for the sake of it, not really caring about the price and who might not even use it once. I spend my own money to fund these giveaways and I want the lenses I giveaway to end up with someone who will actually use them and hopefully benefit from having them as part of their kit.
Good luck to everyone entering.
As you may know, I don’t currently have any sponsors and all of my giveaways except just one were funded myself. I giveaway what I can and as often as I can, but doing many giveaways like this are very costly especially when you add the postage costs, which can cost quite a bit. If you like my giveaways and would like to help me fund my future ones please consider donating anything that could go towards new prizes. Even if a few people would donate $1 each in time it would help me buy a new lens for a giveaway. If you can’t spare anything, you can still help: spread the word about www.vintaglensesforvideo.com by blogging, tweeting about it, sharing it on any other social networks of just telling your friends about it. All your help is greatly appreciated!
