Win a Canon 5DMII from Adorama!!!


JD and I are meeting with our accountant this week for…wait for it…taxes. While this is normally a lackluster moment for any business owner, I definitely use as leverage for emotional purchases. In the midst of preparing our financial records, I’ll usually point out that I should’ve invested in gear for more write-offs and JD will absentmindedly nod his head…which I’ll interpret as free reign to buy new gear (ladies, you can thank me for this technique later). I’m excited because I’m buying the new Canon 5DMIII from Adorama…but this news gets even BETTER…because…

Adorama is sponsoring one of the biggest giveaways this blog has ever seen! Yes, one lucky winner will score so much swag JD even wants to enter the contest to keep my spending at bay!

If you’d like to be entered to win a…
* Canon 5DMII with a Canon EF 24-105L Image Stabilized Lens
* Think Tank Photo Roller Luggage
* SanDisk 16G Extreme Pro CF card
* SanDisk 8G Memory Vault
{that’s almost $3,500 in gifts!)
…then feel free to sign up on There you’ll be entered for this giveaway and even if you don’t win, another lucky Adorama contestant will win $200 to spend that month (it’ll automatically sign you up for both contests when registering).

The deadline to enter is THIS Sunday, April 1, 2012 at 9pm EST and the winner will be picked on Monday…I’ll do a End Zone Dance right along with you. Well, really, just because I like dancing.

I’m terribly excited for what’s in store and I hope it’s the start of amazing things in 2012! If you’d like to see my entire gear set-up, you can feel free to check out this blog post for more details.

Happy Tuesday!

  10. Emily L

    March 27th, 2012 at 4:56 pm

    Do we just enter our email where it says to sign up for the $200? Does that qualify us for the MKii??

  11. Tina Leu

    March 27th, 2012 at 4:57 pm

    Hmmm.. I followed the link and it just showed me the monthly giveaway of $200, nit the Mega pack of canon 5DMII swag. Unless that part if through you! Either way, I’m in! Entered! :)))

    OMG! I’m so excited. I shot my first solo wedding this weekend, and I rented the 5D Mark II as a backup/second camera. (I own a 7D.) I fell in love. I can only imagine how fabulous the III is. Heading over to Adorama to enter. Thanks for the heads up!

  22. jeanine

  23. Jenna

    March 27th, 2012 at 5:07 pm

    Just signed up on Adorama. It didn’t say anything about this giveaway though…hope I’m still entered in both. I also hope that I’m the one doing the End Zone dance with you!!! I may still be working on my photography but I can definitely rock out an AWESOME End Zone dance. ;0)

    So, when I enter the $200 giveaway, it automatically enters me into the camera giveaway? I am not seeing any link for the camera swag pack, just the $200.

  34. Keri

  39. Angel

    March 27th, 2012 at 5:19 pm

    The only sign up was for their email list?? I didn’t see an entry form for this contest 🙁

    I sooo want this!!!…. eeek! so excited! I hope I get this….sooo NEEEEDed 😀
    I was wondering if the link provided is also the entry to win the equipment or is just for the $200 gift card? It doesn’t say anything about the 5D MarkIII??? hmm

  43. Aurora

    March 27th, 2012 at 5:21 pm

    Thank you for this amazing giveaway opportunity! This would be such a dream to true.

  44. Angel Williams

    March 27th, 2012 at 5:22 pm

    How do we enter to win? All I can find is the email list sign-up.

  45. Whitney Dupuis

    March 27th, 2012 at 5:23 pm

    I went to the link you provided to enter at Adorama (how amazing would that gift be?!), but I only saw an entry for a $200 gift card. That would be great too, but it wouldn’t buy me a 5dMII! Any suggestions?

  46. Karen Lee

    March 27th, 2012 at 5:24 pm

    Just entered – crossing my fingers (and toes)!

  47. Ali

    Entering RIGHT NOW!

  48. Kristen

    March 27th, 2012 at 5:26 pm

    What an awesome opportunity. My poor 20D needs to go into retirement!

  49. V

    March 27th, 2012 at 5:26 pm

    I along with many are wondering, is this link only for the $200 card? It is the only thing that is on that page. Does entering for the $200 card enter you also into the drawing of the 5d2?

  50. Rayleigh Leavitt

    March 27th, 2012 at 5:27 pm

    I hope I win!!! I need a new camera.

  51. Michelle

    March 27th, 2012 at 5:28 pm

    ENTERRRRRRRRRRRRED! Oh, my goodness. I’m still rocking a 5D original. I love my baby but it’s just about time for an upgrade. C’monnnnnn baby… mamma needs a brand new SLR!

  52. Adam Packard

    March 27th, 2012 at 5:29 pm

    Clicking the Adorama link only pulls up the $200 GC contest, and doesn’t mention the camera… should it?

  53. Jasmine*

    March 27th, 2012 at 5:32 pm

    Yes, the sign-up page for the $200 contest and this contest are the same…once you sign up, you’re golden! May the odds be ever in your favor! 😉

  54. Danielle Nunes

    March 27th, 2012 at 5:33 pm

    Where do I sign up? !!

  55. Sarah

    Can people outside the US enter? *crosses fingers and squeezes eyes tight shut hoping for a yes*

  56. Marla

    Would love to get my hands on a full frame camera…money is tight.

  61. essiejane

    March 27th, 2012 at 5:47 pm

    My 20d has been begging me for about a year now to be just my back up. 🙂 Great giveaway

  62. Lynette

    March 27th, 2012 at 5:49 pm

    I hope I win! Definitely need an upgrade!

  63. Tori Gillit

    March 27th, 2012 at 5:49 pm

    "So you’re sayin’ there’s a chance…" -Floyd Christmas. Here’s hoping that I can upgrade from my 40D (that I’ll still love ever so dearly if I don’t win, but would gladly have as a back-up instead) Whoo-hoo!

  64. Larissa

    March 27th, 2012 at 5:49 pm

    March 27th, 2012 at 6:26 pm

    I sign up for the giveaway, and it directed me to the $200 giveaway and nothing was mentioned about the camera.
    This is a sweet give away BTW! My little old canon 50D is ready to retire. To win would be awesome!!

  91. Mark Zemnick

    March 27th, 2012 at 6:57 pm

    I don’t see anything on Adorama about the Free Giveaway on the Canon 5D Mark II. Might want to clarify with a direct link to the contest itself.

  92. Meredith Sledge

    March 27th, 2012 at 7:00 pm

    I’ve wanted Mark II FOR SO LONG. I enter a contest like every two weeks. And I mean, the Mark III is pretty cool too…. Haha. Lucky girl!!! But I’ll take a Mark II! Hoping I win with all my heart!

  93. Mathieu Wauters

    March 27th, 2012 at 7:00 pm

    That is one amazing contest!

  94. Johnny Testler

    March 27th, 2012 at 7:01 pm

    I understand that this is a promo that Adorama is using Jasmine to see how many people that she can sign up for the email list. If she signs up enough people, she will get her FREE Canon 5D Mark III. The contest ends on April 1. Sounds like a SCAM.

  95. Anta

    March 27th, 2012 at 7:02 pm

    Being an April Fool’s baby, winning this would definitely make all those years of being subjected to bad April Fool’s jokes worth it! One question though, Jasmine: do you have to live in the US to enter or is this for readers that live outside the US as well? Either way, it’s great to know that that camera we see right there could change someone’s photographic destiny, whoever that may be!!

  96. Alexandra

    March 27th, 2012 at 7:02 pm

    I am from Germany and not sure if I am allowed to enter this but I’ll try and believe in God’s grace.
