The second gift for the birthday party will be camera equipment… but you have to give it back. Yup, three lucky winners will get their choice of equipment rentals from BorrowLenses.com.

BorrowLenses.com

BorrowLenses.com offers up a rental service for photographers in the United States. You can get a wide selection of lenses and camera bodies for the Canon and Nikon systems, along with things like tripods, camera bags, and lighting equipment.

For the birthday party, they’re giving out three two-week rentals. Here are the terms and conditions attached to the offer:

  • You need to be in the US.
  • The order will need to be made online and you will need to provide a credit card number. This won’t be charged but they will need it to ensure you don’t run off with their lens :-) BorrowLenses.com is a reputable business but if you don’t feel comfortable with this condition please don’t enter.
  • The offer excludes super telephoto lenses and pro camera bodies.

… so anything else is game!

TO ENTER THE RAFFLE…

Same as the last one — leave me a comment and let me know you’d like to be entered. REMEMBER — this offer is limited to US participants and it excludes pro bodies and super-telephoto lenses. I would highly encourage you to visit their site and browse their inventory before entering the giveaway. And if you’re not a Canon or Nikon user, you might consider picking up a rental for a tripod, camera bag, or lighting equipment. The winners will be randomly chosen one week from the date of this post.

Excellent give-away Brian, thanks! Please enter me into the drawing.

If I won I’m sure I could find a nice lens I don’t already have to test and maybe review.

Great raffle!

I rented some L glass when I traveled to Portland, OR last summer and it was great; easy and convenient. Although I used another supplier (BorrowLenses.com did not have the lens I needed during the dates of travel), I have heard a great many things about BorrowLenses.com and would welcome the opportunity to work with them.

Thank you.

Brian-

I was actually looking at BorrowLens.com last week trying to figure out the best Nikon lens for my new hobby… shooting HOCKEY pics of my daughter. Talked with a couple folks and it looks like the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR AF-S is the best choice given the low light in the hockey arenas and the FAST speeds of the players. Sure would be fun to be able to borrow this lens for the next tournament!

January 29, 2009 1:58 pm

please enter me… i’d like to compare my sigma dx 70-200 with a canon 70-200

thx!
