It has been a while, but I’m really excited to announce a new vintage lens giveaway! This time I’m giving away two zoom lenses, the Vivitar Series-1 28-90mm F2.8-3.5 and Helios 28-70mm F3.5-3.8! As far as vintage lenses for, these are very versatile and quite fast too! The Komine made Vivitar has the Olympus OM mount and Japanese made Helios has the M42 mount, so both are easily adaptable to just about any modern camera! Considering that these are vintage lenses, both are in excellent condition!
Rules, Terms & Condition for the Giveaway:
To be in with a chance of winning the VIVITAR, you just need to be a part of VLFV Patreon.
As you may know, I don’t have any sponsors and except for occasional collaborations, all my giveaways are self-funded! I giveaway what I can and as often as I can, but giveaways like this are very costly, especially because I volunteer to send lenses to anyone, anywhere in the world, which can cost quite a bit.
To help me fund future lens giveaways, as well as other content I create for VintageLensesForVideo, I started a PATREON page. If you enjoy VLFV, please spare a few minutes to check out my page to see what it’s all about and how you can make a difference! I came up with some rewards for people who decide to support VLFV in such direct way, so please have a look at my page to see if it could add value to you as well!
To manage the HELIOS giveaway, I’m using a rafflecopter.com to help me track all the entries and pick a winner.
Entering is very simple, all you need to do is complete 1 of 7 steps below. To qualify for 1 entry you only need to complete 1 step, but completing more steps will give you more entries, hence give yo a higher chance of winning. Please note, that the winner will NOT be chosen by the amount of entries. The extra completed steps will simply give you higher chance of being picked, so feel free to complete as many or as few as you like, 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 ship anywhere in the world for free, so don’t let your location stop you from entering; previous winners included people from US, UK, Netherlands, Germany, Canada, Italy, Algeria and other countries! I will try to post this 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 never will.
Important: The Winner must contact me via 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 just for the sake of it, not really caring about the prize and who might not even use it once if they win. I spend my own money to fund these giveaways (postage sometimes costs as much as the lens itself) and I want the lenses I give away 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!
