The random selection actually picked him! It isn't the highest number that wins, but more entries definitely gives you better odds! [tentblogger-youtube rJILyCaf77U]

  1. I would strap this to the top of my DSLR for quick Man-on-the-street kind of stuff…

    1. This will be very hand in getting that cave video I’m after with the 5D mk 2

  2. I would use this while shooting video with my 5d Mark ii. Looks great!

  3. It would be use for shooting weddings, interviews and just something small and powerful is what we need!

  4. I have other switronix stuff – happy with every bit of it. For me, this piece would become another regular part of my mobile light kit.

  5. I would use it for close ups for all the upcoming music videos my group has planned

  6. I would use it for a low budget action adventure film that I’m shooting in the Fall

  7. Already have one on my camera for shooting news. I’d put the second one on a stand for even BETTER lighting.

  8. It would be added to my travel kit and help me to better light whilst in the field!

  9. Will be adding to my kit for shooting the glaciers in the Himalayas and Karakoram later this year and hopefully innumerable other possibilities with imaging!

  10. Hey Mitch, I recently complained about pop ups on your site but I guess I have to eat my words. Who doesn’t want a chance to win free cool stuff!

    I would most likely use my Torch light with still photography to do light painting. But it would be cool to have it for use in video production as well.

      John, thanks for your comment! I know I’m not overly fond of popups either, but I also want people to know about the great things we have to give away (and there’s more coming)… and the casual visitor to planet5D may have not seen the announcements – so I have to find some way to let them know! Glad to know they work HAHA 🙂

  11. Will be using it when I start to shoot weddings more often.

  12. Saw this light for the first time last weekend and fell in love. I would use it for tabletop product photography and for video.

  13. i would use the Torch LED to shoot some summer video this summer.

  14. I do a lot of street at night videos whether its a music video, video blog, or interview. This will help give me the correct lighting needed to take my productions to the next level.

  15. I would interview the crap out of unsuspecting drunks at clubs. Nothing’s better than a bright light on a camera in a club to make an inebriated person look like a moron.
