As far as camera owners go, nothing is better than a bag. And a darn good bag at that!
Cozyspeed has been generous enough to provide two bags for two winners: a Camslinger outdoors blue (street $120.00) and a Camslinger Streetomatic+ Black (street $130.00). If you shoot mirrorless or small camera (or have a Mavic pro/Air), they are absolutely perfect!

You know whats better than a tripod? a travel tripod, and what’s better than a travel tripod? A travel video tripod! Well, to be honest, its horses for course kinda thing. Yet travel video tripods are a great tool to have if you are on location a lot and don’t have
an intern a crew to carry gear.
The MeVIDEO is such a travel tripod (hit the jump for more info), and its a gorgeous one at that.
MeVIDEO is giving away one Aluminum/Black tripod to one winner from USA or Canada. You can still own one if you are overseas, you’d just have to back the project for it.
We will pick one random winner on Nov, 17th, so don’t linger…
UPDATE: this giveaway is now over, thanks everyone for playing and a huge thanks for Lomography for the prize. Hit the bottom to see if you won
Some lenses produce stunning photos, and some lenses are also just stunningly beautiful themselves. This is the case with Lomography’s Brass Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art Lens (street value €499.00) which we are giving away.
I have to admit, I love the look of the lens, but I am equally excited about how magnificent this lens looks like. It’s a stunner! Looks aside though, this lens is made after the world’s first photographic optic lens from the 19th century, so shooting with the Daguerreotype has some serious heritage to it.
Entering is easy just fill the box above and you’re in. (share with your friends for extra entries, they will thank you for it!)
Come October 18th, we will pick a winner at random to receive a Brass Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art Lens with their mount of choise
Women made a huge impact on the photography industry, and we want to celebrate that. It’s not only the mere taking of a photo and creating an emotional connection. I mean at first look, you see a documentation of a moment frozen in time. In a second look, you may dive deeper and open a small window into the thought process and personal views of the photographer. And Datacolor and we would like to take a minute and celebrate female of photographers who inspire, educate and motivate the industry.
We can’t do it alone 🙂
Over the month of May Datacolor will do two things:
- Run some great content featuring photographers such as Sarah Silver, Brenda Tharp, Lissa Chandler, Annabelle Chavez and more… Head over to the SpyderBlog to get inspired.
- Host a giveaway with some of the best prizes in the world (see below)
UPDATE: this giveaway has ended. Winners are at the bottom. Huge thanks to Smugmug for letting us play.
Do you remember how fun it used to be sitting in the living room and passing albums around. Heck, I still break out my wedding albums when the kids get curious. But albums in general are getting more rare and those family photo gatherings are getting rare as a result.
SmugMug has a great solution for that, it’s their new Apple TV app. It’s an alternative way to display and share photos even if you don’t print them. And I can see the fun and value in that.
This is why we teamed up with SmugMug to give 2 Apple TVs away. How cool is that. Just enter your details in the box below.
Two weeks ago we asked you if you can toss a reflector behind your back folded and catch it open. Apparently, it was not as an easy task as we thought. (you can practice, 5-in-1 reflectors are cheap, just remember they are out to get you).
13 photographers took a shot at this dangerous trick. Watch them ace or fail this dangerous trick! (The reward however is awesome! aside OWNING your reflector, two winners also got a Light Blaster kit)
Well, do OWN your reflector or does your reflector own you? There is a very simple way to find out. Just fold it, toss it behind your back and catch it as it flaps open. I know it sounds easy, but try it. could be harder than you think.
We are starting an OWN your reflector movement and to make it formal we are starting a contest. See if you can pull that reflector stunt off. Film yourself owning your reflector and share in the comment below (you can share a link to youtube, facebook, vimeo, or even flickr).
The best shot and the best blooper are going to win a pack of prizes courtesy of Spiffy Gear: A Light Blaster with a studio adapter and a pro gobo slide pack (retails @ $287). We are also going to throw a 5-in-1 reflector in there. Just because you OWN it.
Deadline for this contest is next friday (Oct. 7th) , end of day. Don’t wait too long if you want to make sure you get it.
UPDATE: this giveaway has ended. Huge thanks for DataColor for the prize. Jump to the bottom and see if you won.
