Yes, time flies! And it’s already GREEBLEPIX PHOTO CONTEST WEEK again! But as I mentioned last month, we have some changes around here. As in, a wonderful sponsor, which equates to a WONDERFUL PRIZE, for the winner of this month’s Greeblepix contest.
Are you ready? Really? Cause the prize is so awesome I can barely stand it.
The Greeblepix winner will receive a $250 rental from Pro Photo Rental.
TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY DOLLARS, DUDES!
That’s a nice hunk of camera rental!
So… that kick ass lens you have been dying to try out with your Canon, Nikon or Olympus DSLR? Go for it! And Pro Photo Rental also rents full DSLR cameras so you could try a really great system that you have been drooling over! (Although, pssst! The Pro Photo Rental folks have warned me their bodies rent quick, so you would need to get on the calendar for a full kit.)
But who cares! Like I said, $250 worth of camera rental is A LOT! And they offer free 3-day shipping each way. So it’s like Netflix for camera equipment.
But, with the good, comes the bad – as in RULES.
