    New development in Nikon F3 Giveaway

    A photographer from Japan just entered the Nikon F3 contest at the last minute. The give-away is tomorrow. He had no internet access so he entered via his phone.

    What do you guys think?

    Should I just declare him the winner?

    I think given what's going on out there it would be a great gesture and it would give him a chance to really get out there and document everything happening in Japan, on film!

    It's your call, but I know that I, for one, wouldn't be the least bit upset at your decision given the circumstances.

    Gee, Rob, I am not sure.

    What are the criteria? How do we judge? Who spent the most money contacting you? Who expended the greatest effort trying to contact you? Who provided the most earnest plea to you? Who provided the funniest rationale for sending the F3 to him?

    There are so many possible ways to determine how to make your decision.

    It does not affect me, in any case. I do not go past the Nikon F2AS.
    Enjoy;

    When they ask you; "How many Mega Pixels you got in your camera?"
    just tell them; "I use activated silver bromide crystals tor my image storage media."

    If he doesn't have internet access, how did he know to enter?

    My thoughts exactly.

    The original contest had entry requirements but the winner was going to be random draw. Now I am thinking just to run another one next month and give this guy the camera - so far most people seem supportive.

    The story is that he lost internet access after the quake and regained it via his phone - I do plan on verification of address but have no reason to believe it's a scam or trick. Look at his post and account carefully.

    Whatever you decide, I'll support. It would be a grand gesture, I'll toss in a couple of rolls of 35mm film for it. PM me with your mailing address if that's what you decide to do.

    I think it's a nice idea, but take into account that the postal service in Japan might not be very organised right now.
