The great NAB giveaway…Redrockmicro, Zacuto and Genus gear – better late than never.

On my travels at NAB 2010 I managed to secure some great giveaways for followers of DSLRnewsshooter.com. Then I got so busy covering the UK election (in stills) for The Guardian newspaper and website that I had no time to post this until now – a thousand apologies. If you are interested in what I’ve been up to you can look here

To be in with a chance of winning one of these marvellous pieces of kit you need to register for the site, if you haven’t already, and then post below so I know which one of the three items you want. After one month the names will be put into a hat and the lucky winners drawn out. But you can only choose one item and you can only enter once – multiple entries will be disqualified and as in all good competitions the judge’s decision is final.

Your entry should look something like this:

Yourname – I would like to win a Redrockmicro DSLR baseplate…..

It’s as simple as that. Humorous comments are allowed after the item of your choice but will make no difference when it comes to the draw.

First up is a Redrockmicro DSLR baseplate that forms the basis of the Redrock DSLR system and can be added to any 15mm support rods. The giveaway is Redrockmicro’s demo unit from NAB so is not brand new, but it’s a great piece of kit which I use myself. For more info look here

Next up is a very cute Zacuto Point and Shoot grip for improving your video with a compact camera like the Lumix LX-3 or the HD Flip. I put one of these in my day off kit with my IXUS. More info here

And last but by no means least is the Genus GAP plate which when attached to your DSLR rig or camcorder allows you to mount your system on a professional Sony VCT-14 tripod quick release plate. If you are used to shooting ENG you know what I’m talking about. A great prize for any serious newshound. More about it here.

I’d like to thank all the manufacturers for donating the prizes and taking the time to talk to me at NAB – it was a great show and hopefully DSLRnewsshooter will be back there next year for more. I’d also like to give a special thank you to Scott Karlins and Den Lennie of F-Stop academy for helping at NAB.

    Andrius Simutis would be thrilled to win a Redrock Micro baseplate and would be mildly disappointed to not win, but understands the nature of odds in games of chance so won’t hold any grudges or mumble anything under his breath.
