It’s time for another giveaway, and this one is a doozy! We promised you a big giveaway at the end of February and you’re getting one. Just follow the instructions below and you can enter to win the new Fujifilm X-T1 with the 18-55mm lens and the battery grip to boot! That’s a $1,950 value!

If you’re not familiar with the Fuji X-T1 (official announcement post here) then you live under a very special kind of rock. Sporting the newest generation 16-megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor, a super-high res EVF, weather sealing and a very quick AF system, the X-T1 has received nothing but rave reviews from everybody who has tried it.

Plus, it is by far the leader in our “What’s your favorite camera announced in 2014 so far” poll, so we thought one of you would probably appreciate one of these for free.

Entering is Easy

We’ve heard your feedback, and you no longer need to have a Facebook account to enter. Just drop us a line in the comments on this post (NOT FACEBOOK) letting us know how you intend to put the X-T1 to good use. If you DO like our Facebook page, you’ll get a bonus entry! Just include ANOTHER comment with your personalized Facebook ID only (e.g. for facebook.com/petapixel the ID is petapixel, DO NOT POST THE FULL URL or your comment might get sent to moderation).

And that’s it! We’ll take entries all the way from the moment this post goes live until Friday March 7th at midnight Easter Standard Time. (Note: Please don’t comment more than once — or twice if you get a bonus entry for liking our Facebook page — or we’ll have to disqualify you from the drawing).

Remember, the contest ends on Friday March 7th at midnight Eastern Standard Time, so get your entries in before that and we’ll update this post with the randomly selected winner’s name once the contest is over!

Also, this giveaway is open to everyone — the camera can be shipped abroad if you’re an international reader outside the United States.

Good luck and thank you so much for reading PetaPixel!

It is water-resistant after all…) in order to create fantastic music documentary photo essays :D
