Win My Dream 5DMKII Camera Rig!

I’m just about to fall asleep for the first time in 41 hours. The launch of Camera+, the iPhone photo App I’ve been working on with Taptaptap, coupled with iPhone 4  buzz, the AT&T fail, and general WWDC pandemonium.

I just wanted to let everyone, especially budding photographers, about this ridiculous promotion we are doing for Camera+  to win my dream camera rig (valued at over $10,000).

It will physically hurt me to give this amazing gear away, but they are making me… boo hiss.

Take me to the contest!

Good luck to all of you. I really hope one of you wins! *fingers crossed*

    Done! That would be the perfect complement to my shiny new 7D (which I’m still getting used to)! I just can’t let go of my 20D though…it’s been a faithful friend for five years and 55,000 shots.

    Up here in ND, the iPhone is a non-issue; AT&T service is so spotty that it doesn’t make sense to choose them as a provider. I have never even SEEN an iPhone in person. Hopefully that changes down the road (Verizon, hint hint…). I use an LG enV for cell phone pics and it’s really nice, but this app looks like it’d be perfect for people who never want to go anywhere without a capable (and now stylistic) camera!

    I bet it was fun to work on!

    What a wonderful contest! I’m currently shooting with an XSi and a few budget lenses and this setup would indeed be a dream come true. I’m planning on picking up the latest iteration of the iphone and Camera+ will be among the first apps I purchase!
