As we reported a couple of weeks ago, RØDE has announced a new Videomic Pro and thanks to the DVeStore, we’ve just given one away! We’d like to thank them again for sponsoring this giveaway! See who the winner was below…

The DVeStore

DVeStore spun off from DVcreators.net to fulfill the overwhelming requests of “What gear should I buy?” Since 2004 we have been helping content creators get the right tools to fit their needs. Companies such as ESPN, Disney, Sony, and Amazon.com have chosen DVeStore to aid and advise them through the dizzying array of products on the market. We test every piece of gear we sell. We come from a production background and only sell quality tools. Shop with confidence with DVeStore.com!

The DVeStore has posted a video sample of the VideoMic Pro. Unfortunately we can’t embed it so you’ll have to visit the page to view it




The winner!

We selected Sung Kim (planet5D forum profile) by random draw of all the posts in the forums in February. This was the winning post in the timelapse forum. And, for those of you thinking you have to enter multiple times (tho we love to have your participation), Sung only posted once in February and won.

He posted this timelapse too:

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!
