That’s right. No joke here. Those of you who take photography a bit more serious than others have heard about or already use PocketWizards for your wireless photography needs. Now PocketWizard has hooked up with one of my favorite photography sites, Strobist, to give away 4 pairs of PocketWizard Plus II Transceivers in their “Going Wireless” contest! Here are the details direct from PocketWizard so get reading and maybe you’ll be the lucky winner!
Once a month, one free pair of PW Plus II Transceivers will be awarded to the best video on YouTube of a photo shoot detailing creative use of wireless triggering. Video can be live video or, a series of still photos with voiceover and clear explanation of how wireless triggering was used.
Creativity with wireless triggering is key to this contest. Show us your best, most creative use of going wireless with radio triggering. And detail, detail, detail! Explain your setup well so everyone can understand what it took to make your vision come alive.
All videos must be tagged â€œpocketwizardstrobistâ€ to qualify. The judging panel will be David Hobby of Strobist and Phil Bradon from PocketWizard.
In addition, photos may also uploaded to Flickr tagged â€œpocketwizardstrobistâ€ with link to the YouTube video in the description.
The contest runs mid-July through end of November. Winners will be announced on the 15th of each month, beginning in August.
EDIT: Feel free to leave a link to your video as a comment to this post. Also, weâ€™ve seen great use of YouTubeâ€™s video annotations to point out gear use and positioning – great idea! Donâ€™t forget you can always rent wireless gear if you donâ€™t own it yet.
