We like giving away stuff, just as much we love winning free stuff by entering contests and giveaways, and we certainly hope you guys do as well. Especially when the giveaways offer filmmaking gear. Recently we gave away a couple of Blackmagic Design quad posters to a couple of lucky readers. And today we’re doing another giveaway.
As mentioned yesterday on our Facebook page, we’re giving away something a bit different this time, something small, but really useful. So here’s the new 4K Shooters Giveaway:
We’re giving away a Lumix 14mm f2.5 ASPH Pancake lens!
The lens is in mint condition having been used on only one music video on my BMPCC, which was used as C-camera/dashboard cam for a few driving shots around London. It has clear optics and is just as good as new; it comes with the original front and back caps. No original box, but you will get a really well packaged lens (in a non-original box) safely in the mail.
This lens is the perfect mate for a GH4 or BMPCC riding on a 3-axis brushless gimbal or a steadicam-like stabiliser. It is very light and compact, but at the same time with an aperture of f2.5 and a good FOV and sharpness. Retails for about $320 new at the moment. The giveaway ends on Saturday, October 31st, 2014 at 8:00 GMT.
