How to enter!

Entry will be simple – simply post on our enhanced planet5D forum and you're entered! And, as an added bonus, each time you post, you'll get another shot at winning! All posts in the month of December (based on the time stamp on the planet5D forum server) count. We'll announce the winner on January 1st and Genus will ship the product directly to the winner!

Of course, you'll have to register to post, but that's relatively painless as well. But once you're in, you'll want to work with others and learn how they're using their equipment. We've got sections for:


We've set up a special thread on the forum for entries into the contest if you don't yet have something to contribute to the other threads. Just post here.

We'd prefer that you post something about yourself, or how you're using the camera; you know, something interesting – something more than just a simple ‘I want to win'… but we'll leave it up to you 🙂 — of course, you can always introduce yourself on the “introductions” thread.

planet5D Forums – a nice place to talk HDSLRs

We know that you have choices on forums, and we have made the planet5D forum very pleasant, we're tough on bashing (remember what mom always said: “if you don't have anything good to say, then don't say it”), the look and feel is easy on the eyes, they're well organized, and you'll have an enjoyable experience.

We're doing this a little bit different than some of the “tweet this and win” contests, it is a tad harder to enter, but we feel this is good for everyone (not everyone has twitter)… and will help raise awareness of our enhanced forums and you'll benefit by having an additional high quality place to interact with other HDSLR users! But if you want to tweet this post, please feel free! There's a tweet icon right up at the top!

Thanks and please let me know if there's anything I can do to enhance your stay at planet5D!
