Blue Crane Digital Giveaway
The fine folks at Blue Crane Digital have given us some DVD’s to giveaway in a little contest. If you didn’t win the last time, here’s your chance to redeem yourself.

I have the following videos to give away.

How do I win one of these DVD’s?
It’s quite easy, all that is required is photography!

  1. Post your favourite image on this thread in the forums. No theme, it’s a free for all. Please make the image no wider than 800px.
  2. Under your image, let me know which DVD you’d like to win.
  3. I’ll run the contest until Monday, May 30, 2011 at noon GMT -5

Extra information

  • The videos are NTSC only, so be sure you can play them if you’re in a SECAM or PAL part of the planet.

Blue Crane DVD Giveaway Winners

Blue Crane DVD Giveaway Winners

I have notified the winners of the Blue Crane DVD giveaway via the private message service on the forums.

The Bad News
Some folks guessed the right answer, but didn’t specify which video they wanted to receive. This disqualified the entry. It was important to me that people received videos they wanted. Sorry for that, but it was specified in the contest rules.

The Winning Answer
I asked you to rank 4 specific cameras in order of importance according to me!

  1. 5D Mark II
  2. 300D / Digital Rebel
  3. 1Ds
  4. 1D Mark IV

I used to rank the 300D/Digital Rebel #1, but I think the 5D Mark II has really done more to change and advance digital SLRs. I understand most of that is to do with video, but a lot of people also bought this camera because of the amazing files that come from this full frame beauty. We all wish it had the 7D AF in it, but that’s what Mark IIIs are for!

You’re all winners!
Blue Crane Digital is offering 15% to Canon Rumors readers. Just use the coupon code “canonrumors” without the quotes during checkout. The coupon code is valid until March 31, 2011.

More giveaways soon!
