    If you were to win the gift certificate at Adorama what would you want to buy? I would buy more CF cards…even thou I just bought 2 yesterday 🙂 And if you won a lens rental what lens would you want to rent?Really not sure there are so many I want to try.

  2. Ginny on May 13, 2010 at 9:08 am

    I think if I won the Adorama GC, I’d probably put that toward a fisheye lens I’ve been wanting. Or maybe a new camera bag. If I could rent, I think I’d rent a 600 mm lens, and park myself in nature for a week.

  3. jaimie Miserandino on May 13, 2010 at 9:08 am

    If I were to win, I would definitely want to buy some new lighting from adorama and the newest lens I would love to try would be an canon l series…I have wanted to try one for quite a while!

  4. Taylor on May 13, 2010 at 9:09 am

    light modifiers and a TS lens

  5. Christina Tell on May 13, 2010 at 9:10 am

    i would do a flash or reflector…probably reflector…or new lens…i would rent the 16-35 wide angle…to try it out before buying it from adorama!

  6. becky on May 13, 2010 at 9:11 am

    My next lens purchase is the 50 1.4 and my next rental will be the 24-70!

  7. Jennifer Patin on May 13, 2010 at 9:11 am

    I would buy a new camera bag at Adorama – I need a messenger style one that I can shoot with.I would rent the Canon 24-70 f/2.8L. It my next lens that I want to purchase.

  8. wayoutnumbered on May 13, 2010 at 9:12 am

    I would begin my purchase of my dream camera….nikon d300s with all the fun lenses to match!If I won the rental I would rent a pentax 50mm 1.4 since I don’t have one yet and am dying to use that lens!

  9. Sarah on May 13, 2010 at 9:12 am

    If I won the gift certificate to Adorama, I would definitely put it towards a new camera bag – or possibly a shootsac. My bag just isn’t big enough to carry the lenses that I prefer most. That would be a very smart investment for my future.If I was to get the lens rental, I would want to rent the Nikon 35mm f/1.8 DX lens. I have been interested in investing a prime lens but I just haven’t truly decided if it would be worthwhile to own that lens. This way, I can try it out for a week and decide if I want to spend my money on it or not.

  10. Sonya on May 13, 2010 at 9:13 am

    If you were to win the gift certificate at Adorama what would you want to buy? I would put the gift card towards a speed light probably. Or a new bag! And if you won a lens rental what lens would you want to rent? I want to try the 35mm f/1.4

  13. Kahla on May 13, 2010 at 9:14 am

    I am in the process of switching from Pentax to Canon, so there are lots of things I can think of to put the $75 towards! Possibly either towards a battery grip or a lens. The lens I would like to rent would be the Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L USM (which would also mean I may use the $75 to ultimately buy it!).

  14. Darcie R on May 13, 2010 at 9:15 am

    I would buy some flash diffusers and a gray card and still have some left over! I’d probably rent a 70-200 because I really think I need that lens!

    I would get some flash accessories from Adorama and the Canon 50mm f/1.2L from LensRentals.

  19. Elise on May 13, 2010 at 9:17 am

    I would put the Adorama money towards a flash unit. I’ve been renting and renting and need to just buy one! The lens rental would go towards testing out the 70-200 to see what all of the fuss was all about!

  21. Danielle C on May 13, 2010 at 9:17 am

    If I won the gift certificate I’d probably put the money toward a new flash, and if I won the rental, I’d rent the 35mm 1.4.

  22. Kelli T on May 13, 2010 at 9:17 am

    I would buy the Tamron 28-75mm 2.8 and rent the 70-200mm 2.8. It’s a toss up on which one I want so renting both first would help me make that decision!

  23. Erin Jones on May 13, 2010 at 9:18 am

    I would definately rent the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 ED. I would love to play with the fish eye distortion on some of my upcoming models! As for the Adorama gift card? I think it would go towards the purchase of a new video panel!

  24. Andrea on May 13, 2010 at 9:18 am

    I would probably buy a remote for my camera if I won the GC, and I would totally rent a 70-200 2.8 if I won the rental!

  25. Sarah on May 13, 2010 at 9:18 am

    I added one MCP Action banner to my blog. http://sarahcarperphotographyblog.blogspot.com/

  26. Kelly K on May 13, 2010 at 9:19 am

    I would probably buy the Canon 1.4 50mm. For the lens rental, I would rent the Canon 2.8 24-70. I’d love to own that lens!

  27. Stephanie on May 13, 2010 at 9:19 am

    I’d definitely put the Adorama Gift Card toward something I need like the Spyder Calibration or a lens. The Lens Rental, I would definitely rent a zoom lens like the 70-200 2.8. Or even the 10.5 mm fisheye!

  28. Keri Jackson on May 13, 2010 at 9:19 am

    I would probably purchase or rent the same thing a 35mm 1.4 🙂

  29. julia goss on May 13, 2010 at 9:20 am

    I would love to buy a backdrop to eventually start a studio. the giftcard amount would be perfect 🙂 and to rent i would love to try out a lensbaby :)))

  30. Robyn Nielsen on May 13, 2010 at 9:20 am

    If I won a week’s rental from lensrental.com, I would rent the Canon 35mm 1.4 lens because I have been considering purchasing this lens and was already planning to rent first to be sure it’s the one I want.I would use the gift certificate to Adorama towards a soft box. I’ve been using umbrellas, but I prefer the look of softbox catch lights. Thanks for the contest. I don’t have a blog, but I will be posting a link on my facebook fan page. Does that count?

    If you were to win the gift certificate at Adorama what would you want to buy? I’m saving up for the 105 mm Nikkor! I might cave and get a new backdrop or something sooner though.And if you won a lens rental what lens would you want to rent? Wide angle or fisheye of some sort!

  35. Kelley Nelson on May 13, 2010 at 9:22 am

    I would buy the Canon 50mm 1.4 from Adorama, and I would rent the Canon 70-200. What an awesome contest!!

  36. Emily on May 13, 2010 at 9:22 am

    Reflector & 24-70!

    If you were to win the gift certificate at Adorama what would you want to buy? A softboxAnd if you won a lens rental what lens would you want to rent? The 24-70/2.8

  38. Cherene Watkins on May 13, 2010 at 9:24 am

    If I were to win the Adorama gift certificate, I would use it toward the purchase of a flash and diffuser. If I were to win a lens rental, I would love to rent the Canon EF 800mm f/5.6L IS USM. I shoot a lot of soccer and I want to capture the raw effort and emotion the 800 would allow!

  39. Krista on May 13, 2010 at 9:24 am

    Hmmm….the gift certificate would go towards a set of picket wizards. And I’d rent a 105 mm!

  40. Stacey Allison on May 13, 2010 at 9:25 am

    For the gift certificate, I would like to put it toward purchasing a Nikon D90. That is my dream camera. Right now I only have a Canon PowerShot.For the lens rental, I’m honestly not sure. I guess I would research one to try with the PowerShot I have. I don’t even know if I can take the lens off of that or not. Hmmm.

  42. Amanda Smith on May 13, 2010 at 9:25 am

    I would get a camera bag and rent the 24-70 2.8!

  43. Melissa on May 13, 2010 at 9:26 am

    With the gift certificate i’d definetly get a reflector. For lens rental…i would love to rent a macro-just not sure what one.

  44. elisabeth nixon on May 13, 2010 at 9:26 am

    Adorama….it’ll go to my new camera body 🙂 And a lens rental….A toss up between an 85mm and 24mm (or 14mm if they had it….)

  46. deborah on May 13, 2010 at 9:27 am

    If you were to win the gift certificate at Adorama what would you want to buy? well there are two things i need, a carbon fiber tripod and a good light meter…so i would probably put it towards the purchase of both of these items! And if you won a lens rental what lens would you want to rent?I have a workshop coming up for landscape/wildlife photography in the black hills so i would and plan to rent 100-400mm with a 1x TC. So i would love love love to win this rental!!

  47. Tracy Brewer on May 13, 2010 at 9:28 am

    I would put the gift certificate towards some new lighting equipment. I would rent one of the 600mm lenses for some wildlife shooting.

  48. Jodie on May 13, 2010 at 9:28 am

    If I won the Gift cert I would put the money toward a Canon 5D Mark II!!!! Saving for this one! If I won the lens rental I would rent the 70-200 2.8 IS BABY!!!! I really want to try this lens!!!

  49. Jackie on May 13, 2010 at 9:28 am

    I’d buy a new camera bag.. or I’d rent the 24-70.

  50. Amanda on May 13, 2010 at 9:29 am

    I have been wanting a wide angle lens Forever! This would be a great chance to try one out and make sure~

  51. Kara on May 13, 2010 at 9:30 am

    I would put the gift card towards a speedlight and I would love to try the 35 mm 1.4

  52. deborah on May 13, 2010 at 9:30 am
  53. jeanine on May 13, 2010 at 9:30 am

    I could really use a battery grip or an 8gb – 16gb cf card. I would love to rent a 35mm L. Thanks for the chance to win!

  54. jivana on May 13, 2010 at 9:31 am

    I’d use the gift card for the canon speedlight i’ve been saving for, and rent the canon 75-200 2.8 lens.

  55. Kristy Owens on May 13, 2010 at 9:31 am

    If I were to win the Adorama gift card, I think I would definitely invest in a better camera bag. I am still using the one that came with the camera…it’s so big & bulky.I would love to win the lens rental, in which I would pick out the Nikon 24-70 2.8!!

  56. jeanine on May 13, 2010 at 9:32 am

  57. Jennifer Dunn on May 13, 2010 at 9:33 am

    If I won a gc to Adorama I would put that towards a new background stand. Mine SUCKS! I am ready to get a new one. If I won the lens rental I would rent the 85mm just to see what everyone is talking about!

  58. Laura Rhoades on May 13, 2010 at 9:34 am

    I would likely put the Adorama gift card toward the purchase of a Canon 7D. I’d rent the Canon 35mm 1.4 lens for sure.

  59. Brit on May 13, 2010 at 9:34 am

    I’ve got my eye on a 35mm f/1.8 lens so I’d use the one week trial to try that and hopefully use the gift certificate to buy it!

  60. margaret on May 13, 2010 at 9:34 am

    this is easy – i would buy canon 35mm lens and rent 70-200 2.8 IS. thanks!!

  61. jeanine on May 13, 2010 at 9:35 am
  62. carla on May 13, 2010 at 9:35 am

    I would probably put the Adorama GC toward monitor calibration, and I would rent the Nikkor 85 mm 1.8 lens, because I’m thinking of purchasing one.

  63. jessica larsen on May 13, 2010 at 9:35 am

    More studio equipment and a 24-70 lens!

  64. Susan P on May 13, 2010 at 9:36 am

    Adorama – I would put it toward the purchase of the canon 50mm 1.4 lens that i have had my eye onLensRentals – I’d like to rent the 28mm 1.8 lens

    subscriber!

  66. julie ross on May 13, 2010 at 9:37 am

    I would upgrade my 50mm lens if I win the gift card. If I win the lens rental, I’d rent that 50mm lens.

  67. carla on May 13, 2010 at 9:37 am

    I follow this blog on Google Reader.

  68. Brooke Chambers on May 13, 2010 at 9:38 am

    1. An extra battery.2. Either the 24-70mm, or the 35mm.

  69. Gina on May 13, 2010 at 9:38 am

    I would either rent the Nikon 35mm f/1.8G DX or the Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 AF-S VR. I need a couple more memory cards from Adorama.

  70. Britani on May 13, 2010 at 9:38 am

    I would be boring and buy a nice tripod. I would rent either a 700 or a macro lense. Thanks!

  71. Connley on May 13, 2010 at 9:39 am

    $50 from Adorama? Hmmm…I would put it toward the CS5 upgrade that I need desperately! 🙁 A lens? A LENS???? 35 1.4 MOST definitely! 🙂

  72. Cynthia on May 13, 2010 at 9:40 am

    With the gift certificate? My wish list is long, but I would either put it towards a shootsac or a rolling case to hold all of my gear. With the lens rental? Definitely a fish eye lens.

  73. Dana-from chaos to Grace on May 13, 2010 at 9:40 am

    I would buy some lens protector thingies for my lenses (I have NONE) or more memory for my Mission trip to Mexico in July. I only have 1 2GB card and that just isn’t going to cut it for a 10 day Mission trip! And I would rent the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR lens for church camp in June!! I struggle every year with super low-light worship services and that is the MOST important pics for me to capture! One year, I VOW to capture them beautifully! I have yet to find a zoom lens PERIOD that I love for worship services though.

  74. Tracey on May 13, 2010 at 9:40 am

    If I won the Adorama Gift Certificate, I’d either use it for a second battery, a small camera bag, or maybe towards a 50mm f/1.4 lens.For the Lens rental, I think I’d test out a fisheye lens. It’s been years since I played around with unusual lens options.

  75. Lisa G. on May 13, 2010 at 9:41 am

    First, I would rent a speedlight from LensRental.com and if I liked it at the end of the week, I would put the $75 Adorama credit toward the purchase of one!

  76. Kim Cook on May 13, 2010 at 9:41 am

    If I win, I would put the money towards a new gear bag, and the lens I would rent would be the Nikon 24-70 🙂

  77. melissa on May 13, 2010 at 9:42 am

    I would love to buy Nikon’s 35mm prime, I’ve finally figured out I’m a prime girland I would LOVE to rent the 70-200mm just to experience it because that is the only zoom I’m considering right now!

  78. Luis Murillo on May 13, 2010 at 9:42 am

    For the Adorama gift certificate, I would buy rolls of film, I’ve recently gotten into shooting using film, especially using the medium format, and I love it so much but the hard thing is getting color film in my country, Costa Rica, because no one here brings any medium format color film.For the lens rental, I can’t apply for it but if I were able I would definitely rent a 50mm f/1.2 for my Nikon.

  79. latoyia Bailey on May 13, 2010 at 9:42 am

    I would love to win to try out some diff. lens.

  80. Lisa on May 13, 2010 at 9:43 am

    I would probably use the money toward a lens…dreaming of the 50mm 1.2. The lens I would rent, however, would be the 35mm 1.4 :)thanks!

  81. Danelle Jelley on May 13, 2010 at 9:43 am

    With a gift card I’d buy some neutral density filters. I’d rent the Canon 24mm f/1.4L lens. Soooo pretty.

  82. Chuck Griffin on May 13, 2010 at 9:43 am

    If you were to win the gift certificate at Adorama what would you want to buy?Hmm, I think I would buy a large softbox with hardware to improve my lighting.And if you won a lens rental what lens would you want to rent?Probably the 100-400L, just to see what L glass at that range provides. Either that or the 24-70L to compare with what I have already.

  83. aimeej on May 13, 2010 at 9:43 am

    I would put the gift card towards the tamron 17-50 that is next on my list. If I were to rent a lens, I would rent the 70-200 b/c there is no way (in the foreseeable future) that I would ever be able to afford that.

  84. Mary on May 13, 2010 at 9:44 am

    I would use the gift certificate towards a 70-200mm Canon L series lens. It’s not enough to cover the cost, but it’s a good start and I would really love to buy the lens!I would probably rent the lens that I want to buy so that I can check it out for myself prior to purchasing it.

  86. Regina White on May 13, 2010 at 9:44 am

    I would put it towards a new lens and I would rent the 70-200 2.8.

  88. Kate Pizzo on May 13, 2010 at 9:45 am

    I would use the $75 from Adorama towards the upgrade of a camera body and I would use the lens rentals rental for a tryout of the new body before I bought it…just be certain it was the right fit for me.

  102. Jennifer on May 13, 2010 at 9:49 am

    If I were to win the gift card, I would probably put that money towards body upgrade. I am really itching to get a new canon 50D! If I were to win the lens rental, I would probably rent the canon 100mm macro. I’ve seen some amazing photos taken with that lens!

  106. Emily on May 13, 2010 at 9:51 am

    I would rent the Canon 14mm f/2.8L II from LensRentals.com and probably put the gift certificate towards a new lens. What a great giveaway!

  107. Tommy Botello on May 13, 2010 at 9:51 am

    Well, the gift card would go towards the 17-55mm lens that I’m wanting to get. And then I want to rent a 70-200mm Nikkor to try before I buy that as well. Can’t have to many lenses!

  108. Dru Stefan Stone on May 13, 2010 at 9:52 am

    I already have things in my cart at Amazon from Adorama, BUT I would choose something unplanned if I won, like a speedlite.As far as the rental goes, I would want to try a fixed f/stop lens to see if it really does make a difference, the focal length would depend on the adventure I was taking!

  109. Alisia Kay on May 13, 2010 at 9:52 am

    I would love to buy a canon d mark 11.and i would love to rent a wide angle. 🙂

  111. Steph on May 13, 2010 at 9:53 am

  112. Patricia Espedal on May 13, 2010 at 9:54 am

    I would put money toward a lens I want from Adorama and then with a free rental probably a fish eye lens!!

    I have bought ALL of my gear from Adorama, so I’d really love this. I am eyeing the Canon 5D Mark II. My goal is to master everything there is to know about my Canon T1i, and once I do, move up to full-frame. I am getting close to reaching that goal, and I’ve been buying a lot of great Canon lenses from Adorama! As far as what lens would I rent, that is a much harder question. I imagine I’d go with an ultra-wide angle or a fish eye. Or maybe the 85mm 1.8 or 1.2 because everyone raves about it. Probably the 1.8, because that’s the one I’m more likely to buy, so I’d want to try it out. But I’d love to have fun with the fish eye for a week!

  114. Mallory on May 13, 2010 at 9:55 am

    I would looooove to rent a Nikon d700. Oooh, the camera lust is strong! I would put the money towards a new lens, probably a Nikon 60mm. 🙂

  115. stacy a on May 13, 2010 at 9:55 am

    Ooo… there are so many things at Adorama. Maybe a new camera bag.And rental at LensRentals, the 10.5mm f/2.8 fisheye

  116. Gale on May 13, 2010 at 9:56 am

    I would put the $ towards a new lens. I would rent a wide angle lens.

  117. Irene on May 13, 2010 at 9:56 am

    Hmmmmmm.. what to buy? I probably would go with the macro extension tubes. I have been wanting to get something for camera that would just be for fun rather than for client work. And I definitely know what I want to rent – a super wide angle lens. We are going on vacation to a beautiful home on the lake in the mountains. I would love a super wide to capture some of the gorgeous vistas!!!!!

  118. Laurie Walscheid on May 13, 2010 at 9:57 am

    I think if I won the Adorama GC, I’d probably put that toward another memory card. If I could rent, I think I’d rent a fisheye lens.

  119. Regina on May 13, 2010 at 9:57 am

    I still using the lenses that came with my camera kit, so I would put the gift certificate towards, maybe the 35 mm 1.4 that Jessica talked about yesterday. And for the lens rental, well perhaps I would rent the 35 mm 1.4 and try it first 🙂

  121. Adrianne on May 13, 2010 at 9:58 am

    I would buy a 70-200 2.8 if I won (a good excuse, discount) and if I can rent it’ll be…a 70-200 2.8. LOL I’m consistent, at least. This is my only entry since I stalk you all over the other places so fingers crossed you pick my number, randomizer. 🙂

  122. Mary Fitzgerald on May 13, 2010 at 9:58 am

    If I were to win the Adorama gift certificate, I would put it toward a Think Tank roller bag for an upcoming trip. I would love to rent the Nikon 105mm micro lens from LensRentals.com!

  123. Nicole on May 13, 2010 at 9:59 am

    I would probably use the gift card for more memory cards. I would love to rent a 70-200 or a 50mm 1.2 lens!Tweeted and facebooked!

  128. Sarah on May 13, 2010 at 10:01 am

    I would want to put the gift certificate towards a new Canon Speedlite 580EX II, Shoe Mount Flash. I don’t have an extra flash and I have tried them out and they are A-mazing! It would be so great to have for wedding season.

  129. Kai on May 13, 2010 at 10:01 am

    If I were to win the gift certificate to adorama, I would put it towards a large print of one of my photos for my mother’s birthday, which is coming up fairly soon. She’s been one of my biggest supporters since I picked up my first dSLR last year.As for the lens rental, I’d go with a 12mm for the week and zoom around this beautiful city of Seattle to properly document the place before we move. I’m more than sad to leave and having a fisheye would help in capturing the city’s magnitude (as well as all of the places we’ve frequented). It would also help with the decision as to whether or not I should make room for a fisheye in my bag permanently.

  130. Heather Craven on May 13, 2010 at 10:02 am

    I would by cf cards- you can never have enough and I’m always interested in a wide angle lens possibly the 16-35mm to see if I’d like to buy it.

  131. Nichole on May 13, 2010 at 10:02 am

    If I were to win the gift certificate to Adorama I would probably put it towards another CF card. If I were to win the lens rental which I could soooooo very much use since I’m upgrading to a canon camera from sony and won’t be able to afford it anytime soon I would want the Canon 70-200 2.8 IS for a week…

  132. barbara hoffman on May 13, 2010 at 10:03 am

    if i was so lucky as to be chosen for the give-away . . . my dream would to buy a lens baby! i have seen so many cool things done with this lens and it just fascinates me to think of all the possibilities to do with the camera.and . . . if i was fortunate to win the lens rental i would love to rent canon 35mm f/1.8 lens. i love the idea of having more prime lenses in my shootsac. 🙂

  133. Brittney on May 13, 2010 at 10:04 am

    I would put the gift card toward a fisheye lens. And I would rent a fisheye!

  134. Heather on May 13, 2010 at 10:04 am

    I would put it towards a wide angle lens 🙂 I would rent a 14-24mm

  135. Gabrielle Smith on May 13, 2010 at 10:05 am

    I would put the $75 towards a battery grip for my 40D. And I would rent a 70-200mm f/2.8 L lens to see if I absolutely *have* to have it!

  138. Grace on May 13, 2010 at 10:08 am

    If I won the gift certificate from Adorama, I would put it towards my next purchase- I’m always getting stuff from them! I would love to rent a macro lens of some sort, just to see if I could love it enough to buy it. 🙂

  139. Leslie on May 13, 2010 at 10:08 am

    I would probably put the gift card toward some lighting or maybe a huge reflector!! I’m not sure what lens I would want to try! Maybe a 50 1.4-I have the 1.8 but might want to upgrade! It would be a good opportunity to try it out!

  140. Jennifer on May 13, 2010 at 10:09 am

    I would want to buy CF Cards or lighting and I would probably rent 35mm 1.4.

  141. Suzanne on May 13, 2010 at 10:09 am

    I would like to buy a 50mm 1.4 and rent the 24 – 70mm 2.8!

  143. r.alvord on May 13, 2010 at 10:10 am

    Thank you for this give away. I would hopefully buy a lens if I were to win! If I got a chance to rent one it would be the 70-200.

  144. Nichole on May 13, 2010 at 10:11 am

  145. Angie Wagner on May 13, 2010 at 10:11 am

  150. jennifer on May 13, 2010 at 10:14 am

    My next purchase is more CF cards and a Fisheye. I would rent the 70-200 2.8mm

  151. Kami F on May 13, 2010 at 10:14 am

    I would buy a new camera bag with the Adorama gift card and would rent to the Nikon 85 1.4

  152. Brooke Reynolds on May 13, 2010 at 10:15 am

    If I won the gift certificate, I would use it toward purchasing a Shootsac…I’m been needing one of those for a LONG time! I would love to try out a tilt-shift lens for a rental.

  153. Colleen on May 13, 2010 at 10:16 am

    I’d get a calibrator for my monitor from Adorama, and I want to rent either the 85mm f/1.4 or 1.8 and a wide angle lens like the 10-24mm. Both are lenses I’m interested in, and I would love to give them a try first to make sure.

  154. Jessica Hedrick on May 13, 2010 at 10:17 am

    If I won the gift card, I would use it toward the purchase of either the 50mm or 35 mm lens…If I won the rental, I would either rent the 24-70 or 16-35…what a magnificent day that would be! lensrentals.com is a great company to work with!

    OMG! I would totally put it toward the purchase of a fish-eye lens! They are so fun (but unnecessary) and I could totally justify it if I had the money given to me! I would probably rent the same thing for a big wedding I have in October!

    1) From Adorama I would like to buy a wireless controller for my flash, more SD cards and some Hoya filters.2) Lens rental – the widest lens I can get for Nikon mounts or a macro lens, which I’ve been jonesing to use.

  164. Cortney on May 13, 2010 at 10:22 am

    I’d put the money towards a Canon Speedlight. Rental wise I’d love to try a 35mm 1.4

  165. crissie on May 13, 2010 at 10:22 am

    For the lens rental, I would rent the 70-200. Been dying to try. At Adorama, SAVAGE SEAMLESS! Been on my wish list for 6 months!!!

  166. Darien on May 13, 2010 at 10:23 am

    If I won a $75 gift card to Adorama, I would probably use it toward the purchase of a new camera bag (maybe a shootsac). If I won a lens rental, I would rent the Canon 100mm 2.8L. I’ve been dying to try this lens!

  167. Jennifer Campbell on May 13, 2010 at 10:23 am

    If I were to win the gift certificate at Adorama I would want the gift certificate to go towards a Macro Lens – I love close up! Or maybe go towards a flash! And if I won the rental I think I would try out a Macro Lens!

  170. Stephanie on May 13, 2010 at 10:25 am

    If I were to win the GC – I would get the Canon Ef 75-300 4/5.6 Iii lens. I just got a Canon Rebel Xs and considering both boys will be in sports shortly this would be a perfect and neccessary accessory. If I won the lens rental instead – I would likely rent this or another lens.

  171. Kristen on May 13, 2010 at 10:25 am

    I’m saving up to replace my 50 1.8 with a 50 1.4 so if I won the giftcard it would go towards that. I’d definitely rent a 70-200 2,8 IS if I won the week’s rental. Or maybe a 100mm macro.

  172. Julie on May 13, 2010 at 10:26 am

    Gift card would be used for a lens. Lens rental: where to start!

  173. Michelle Dry on May 13, 2010 at 10:27 am

    I would buy a backdrop and I’m not sure what lens, maybe a macro?

  174. GayleV on May 13, 2010 at 10:27 am

    I really didn’t even have to think when we asked your question. With the $75 I would put it toward a ShootSac and with the lens rental, I would rent a 70-200 2.8. I have been wanting both those things!!

  175. Brooke Lowther on May 13, 2010 at 10:27 am

    If I won the prize, I would use the money to go towards a new strobe & softbox. I would rent a 35mm prime for a week if I could.

  176. Heidi Lawson on May 13, 2010 at 10:28 am

    I can have fun way too fast in a camera store. I would probably put the money towards upgrading to a 50mm 1.4! (currently have the 1.8). As for the lens rental, I would really love to try out the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8.

  179. Kristen Vincent Photography on May 13, 2010 at 10:30 am

    I would use the gift money towards the new flash I am needing…ok wanting~ but I REALLY want it:) If I won the lens rental I would rent the Canon 20-35!

  180. Nance H on May 13, 2010 at 10:30 am

    I would use the $75 towards a new lens but I’m not sure which one. I would want to rent a quality fixed lens so that I can see the difference it would make.

  181. Brandi Liner on May 13, 2010 at 10:31 am

    If you were to win the gift certificate at Adorama what would you want to buy? Oh I am so wanting a Nikon 18-200 mm lens – I would definetly put that towards my new and beautiful lens. And if you won a lens rental what lens would you want to rent?Most definetly the Nikon 18-200mm – I am excited just thinking about it!!

  184. Dana J on May 13, 2010 at 10:32 am

  185. Amy Horne on May 13, 2010 at 10:32 am

    Ooooooh my! I would put the $75 toward a flash. I don’t have one and I’m totally Jones’ing for one! I would rent a wide angle lens. I’m limited to doing portraits at the moment because of my lenses and I’d love to try out some big group and scenery photos!!!

  194. Marti on May 13, 2010 at 10:38 am

    I would put the money towards a backdrop stand. I am setting up a studio in my house and that is a crucial piece I am missing. I would rent the Nikon 105mm 2.8 macro lens. I am trying to decide it I want to purchase it but would love to try it out for a week first!

  195. Aimee (aka Sandeewig) on May 13, 2010 at 10:38 am

    This is the easiest question to answer yet! I would use that gift certificate towards the purchase on my first OCF: a 430 exII. I’ve been eying it and saving for it for a while. For the lens rental, I’d go w/ something wide, like a 10mm L since I have a kit, 50mm and 75-300 already. I’ve seen some pretty funky portraits with the wide angle lenses; it looks fun!

  196. Beth Benoit on May 13, 2010 at 10:38 am

    I would put the Adorama GC towards the purchase of a Shootsac and I would rent the Canon 24-70L. I’ve been dying for both!

  197. Nekane Owens on May 13, 2010 at 10:39 am

    If you were to win the gift certificate at Adorama what would you want to buy~ I would use it to pay for part of my new 85mm 1.2 that I really want! And if you won a lens rental what lens would you want to rent~ I would either rent the 50mm 1.2 or the 85mm 1.2 again! I love thoses lenses!!! I just took these pics with the 50mm 1.2 I rented lensrental.com this week 🙂

  198. Melissa on May 13, 2010 at 10:39 am

    Adorama — new camera bag!Lens Rentals — would rent the 60mm macro.

  199. Brooe on May 13, 2010 at 10:39 am

    If I were to win the GC, I would use it toward a 50mm 1.4 lens, and if I could rent a lens it would be the same one 🙂

    Adorama is like a candy store to a tubby kid for me. It’s hard to decide, but I need memory cards, and another umbrella (mine has seen better days), or maybe a new reflector.For the lens rental, I would probably go with an 85mm.

  217. Jennifer Vinson on May 13, 2010 at 10:54 am

  218. Chris on May 13, 2010 at 10:55 am

    I would use the gift certificate towards a new lens. And I would rent the Tamron 28-75mm 2.8 because I’ve heard so many good things about it, but I’m hesitant not to buy a Canon.

  219. Maggie on May 13, 2010 at 10:56 am

    I’m dying to try the 16-35mm f/2.8L – some of my favorite flikr shots are taken with it!

  220. Rachel Hill on May 13, 2010 at 10:56 am

    A new card reader or new CF cards.Too many lenses to choose from….would have to look at what shoots I have coming up!

  221. Melissa on May 13, 2010 at 10:57 am

    I would put the Adorama money towards a speed light (SB600) and I would want to rent either a 30mm 1.4 or a 50mm 1.4 since I’ve yet to try a 1.4 lens.

  222. Jennifer on May 13, 2010 at 10:58 am

    I’d put the gift certificate towards a new lens (the lens I’d like to rent). Not sure if it’s offered to rent but I’d love to try out the new Tamron 18-270 mm all in one lens. It would be so handy to have such a variety of focal lengths available when I didn’t have my 50 mm glued to my camera. I LOVE lensrental.com and have used them several times!

  223. Amanda on May 13, 2010 at 10:58 am

    If I won the Adorama gift certificate I would use it to help purchase some new studio lights. And if I won the lens rental, it would be a tough choice between the Nikon 85mm 1.4 or a 100mm Macro lens!!

    If I were to win the Adorama gift card, I would use it to buy some wet weather camera gear because I got caught in the rain during a wedding last month — no bueno! If I were to get to rent a lens, I would choose the Nikon 10.5mm f/2.8 AF DX Fisheye. I’ve been really interested in the Fisheye lenses lately, and would love to play with one 🙂

  225. Melissa Cooper on May 13, 2010 at 11:00 am

    If you were to win the gift certificate at Adorama what would you want to buy? I’d upgrade my 50mm 1.8 to a 50mm 1.4!And if you won a lens rental what lens would you want to rent? the canon 70-200mm 2.8 IS

  228. Mikkel on May 13, 2010 at 11:02 am

    Thanks for the chance! I would buy a speed light at Adorama! I really need one. And lens rental: definitely a 24mm I hear so much about!

  229. Christy on May 13, 2010 at 11:02 am

    I think I would have to put the money toward either a macro lens or a fisheye…

  230. Mary Saou on May 13, 2010 at 11:03 am

    If I won the Adorama gift certificate, I would put it towards a 5dMarkII. I’m only shooting with a Rebel right now, and have been saving towards the MarkII for a while! If I won the lens rental, I would DEFINITELY rent the 70-200mm lens. I shoot with a 50mm 1.4 and a 24-70mm 2.8L right now, and have been itching to try the telephoto!

  237. Meghan on May 13, 2010 at 11:06 am

    I would get the Canon 24-70, or 85mm from Adorama. I would also like to rent one of those lens to see what I think! Thanks for the offer! Sounds like fun!

    If I won the gift certificate to Adorama I would put it towards a Nikon 70-200 F2.8 VRII I have a 80-200 2.8 lens that is my work horse !! its old and I have been squirreling money away to upgrade to the 70-200 !! and if I got the free rental I’d rent the 70-200

  246. Kelly Quaschnick on May 13, 2010 at 11:17 am

    I would most likely put the gc towards the purchase of a 7D- gotta upgrade the body before my sis’ wedding in Oct! Lens rental would either be the 100mm macro or the 24-70mm. Both are on my wish list, so it would be fun to play with them!

  247. Judy on May 13, 2010 at 11:17 am

    I would love to get at 50mm 1.4

  248. Michelle on May 13, 2010 at 11:18 am

    I would put the gift card towards either extra CF cards or a flash. The lens I would want to try the 35mm lens.

  250. Suzzanne Dockendorf on May 13, 2010 at 11:18 am

    I don’t know if I could pick just one thing so maybe I would put that money towards a lens (Nikon 85mm) or light kit. If I could rent a lens for a week I would have to go with the Nikon 70-200mm F/2.8. I really want to own this lens but it would be awesome to be able to try it out for a week first.

  251. jenny on May 13, 2010 at 11:19 am

    with a gift certificate to adorama, i would buy a backup battery or cf cards. with a free lens rental, i’d get a fisheye for some fun shots – i’ve never shot with one before! thanks for the opportunity!

  256. Kristen Lopes on May 13, 2010 at 11:20 am

    If I were to receive the free gift certificate I would want to purchase the Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Standard AutoFocus Lens because it is very versitile and a great little lens to have. If you would have asked me last week I would have said the Kelly Moore camera bag in Jade. But I already purchased that because I feel in love with it.If I were to receive a free rental I would like to rent the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro Auto Focus Lens because I love shooting nature macro shots.

  257. Ardella Roehm on May 13, 2010 at 11:21 am

    At Adorama… I’d get a new battery for my camera.At LensRental… Nikkor 24-70 2.8… would LOVE to try this lens!Thanks!!

  258. Marla Misclevitz on May 13, 2010 at 11:21 am

    If I were to win the gift certificate, I would likely save towards a much larger lens purchase. I’d really like to purchase the 135 f/2L lense and $75 is nearly 10% of that. =)As for the rental, I would rent the 85 1.2L lense!!!

  259. lillypie on May 13, 2010 at 11:23 am

    If you were to win the gift certificate at Adorama what would you want to buy? I’d add it to my New Lens Fund. And if you won a lens rental what lens would you want to rent? What wouldn’t I want to rent? Lessee, maybe the Canon 35mm f/1.4L.

  260. Jessica Hilborn on May 13, 2010 at 11:24 am

    If I were to win the Adorama gift certificate, I would love to buy some more fun colors of seamless background paper! If I won the lens rental, I would rent the Tamron 28-75mm 2.8. I’ve been wanting to buy this lens, so this would be a great opportunity to try it out first!

    If I won the gift card, I would probably put it towards a 50mm 1.8 or 1.4 lens. If I won the rental, I would probably rent a telephoto lens of some sort. I’ve always wanted to try one.

  263. Corrie Schaffeld on May 13, 2010 at 11:25 am

    70-200L 2.8 IS! I would rent the 35L prime

  271. Roberta on May 13, 2010 at 11:31 am

    Adorama: Probably toward the Nikon SB900.Lens Rental: Nikkor 70-200 2.8 for sure.

  272. Kacie Hanna on May 13, 2010 at 11:31 am

    I would buy and external flash, so I could get more shutter speed and better lighting. Also i would rent the Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 or f/1.4 lens I’ve heard it is a must have but not sure since I’ve spent so much money already!

  273. Shae on May 13, 2010 at 11:33 am

    If I wont the gift cert, I would put it towards a super wide angle lens. If I got the lens rental, I would rent the 24-70 2.8

  277. Jill R on May 13, 2010 at 11:36 am

    At Adorama I would put the gift card toward the purchase of the Olympus 8010 Stylus Tough camera. I need a new family camera and I decided on this one when it first came out. The lens rental would be a Zuiko 30-100mm. I’ve been wanting one real bad and I’d LOVE to rent it!!

  278. Tracey on May 13, 2010 at 11:36 am

    I would love to buy another lens from Adorama!! If I could rent a lens for the week it would be the Nikon 24-70 2.8!

  279. Judy on May 13, 2010 at 11:37 am

    Thanks for the give away, how fun! I would use the G.C. towards wireless flash triggers. For the lens rental I would get something with a wide angle. I really want an almost panoramic crop of my kids and me to for over our piano and I don’t have a good lens for that at the moment.

  280. Joey on May 13, 2010 at 11:37 am

    With the gift certificate from Adorama, I would put it towards the purchase of a new lens bag or pocket wizards. With the rental from LensRental.com, I would rent the 85mm f/1.2L II to see if it’s worth the investment. Thanks!

  283. jennylee on May 13, 2010 at 11:39 am

    I’d buy either the Nikkor 35mm 1.8 or sigma 30mm 1.4. I’m still trying to decide. And I’d rent a killer wide angle zoom. I want one amazing zoom in my bag, but I’m not convinced which one it should be.

    I would use the Adorama giftcard to buy some more seamless paper – there are some colors that I have been dying try. And, the lens I would rent would be the 85mm 1.4 – I love close ups and have heard that this lens is amazingly sharp.

  288. beeveedee on May 13, 2010 at 11:41 am

    If you were to win the gift certificate at Adorama what would you want to buy? Maybe put it towards a tripod… or a lens.And if you won a lens rental what lens would you want to rent? Nikon 70-300mm VR lens, or a wide angle zoom.

  289. Jenny on May 13, 2010 at 11:42 am

    I would put the money towards my 24-70 and I would rent the Nikon macrom 60! Great giveaway!

  290. Beth Winterburn on May 13, 2010 at 11:43 am

    I would put the $ towards a shoot sac, and the lens I’d rent would be an 85mm f/1.2 L II. I took 503’s workshop last fall and haven’t been able to stop thinking, dreaming, doing photography since. I’m flyin’ solo on my first wedding in July..and I’ve already lined up rentals from Lensrentals.com..but I don’t have anything to house these fabulous treasures!

  291. Nikki Painter on May 13, 2010 at 11:44 am

    I would put the gift card towards a new lens. I would rent a 35mm f1.4 and see if I love it as much as everyone else!

  295. Jen Parker on May 13, 2010 at 11:46 am

    I’d buy a reverse lens mount and a camera bag if I won the gift certificate. As for what lens to rent? It’s a toss up between a fisheye or the 35mm 1.4. Hmmm…..

  307. Victoria on May 13, 2010 at 11:51 am

  311. Emily S on May 13, 2010 at 11:53 am

    Adorama: I need lighting. Lens: I’d love to rent the Nikon 24mm 1.4 lens!

  312. Kate Lowenstein on May 13, 2010 at 11:54 am

    If I were to win the Adorama gift cert, I’d buy a new lens – probably the 85mm 1.4 I’ve been wanting.If won the rental, I’d probably rent the fisheye for an upcoming wedding.

  313. Colleen Nehrir on May 13, 2010 at 11:58 am

    I would put the gift certificate towards the purchase of a new lens; and I would rent a 100 – 400mm to take some sports action shots.

  314. Laura M. on May 13, 2010 at 11:59 am

    Adorama: I’d put the $75 towards a speedlite.Lens Rental: wide angle lens. This is my next lens purchase, I’m debating between the tokina and sigma right now. I’d love to test one out!

  315. LaRell Steele on May 13, 2010 at 12:00 pm

    New light, I need an new light. I am thinking of video lighting to use rather than the strobes that I already have.

  316. Liz on May 13, 2010 at 12:01 pm

    I think I’d want to buy a camera bag and I don’t know which lens I’d rent.

  317. Kristin on May 13, 2010 at 12:04 pm

    If I won the gift card it would go toward outfitting my studios with the little things i need, reflectors, extra battery so on so forth! And the lens I would rent would be the 16-35mm, i can’t decide between that and the 24-70!!

  318. Jolene Grizzle on May 13, 2010 at 12:04 pm

    If I won I would buy a wide angle… not sure which one. I’ve been doing a lot of real estate photography lately and mine blows! 🙂 If I could rent some lighting equipment to try that would be awesome! I also did every option for more chances. Thanks MCP!

  319. Robin Jan on May 13, 2010 at 12:05 pm

    I would put the $75 towards my D700 fund. I’ve been wanting to upgrade my D200 for a long time now!I only have two lenses, a 50mm and an 85mm. I might try to rent a zoom lens to give me more range and see how I like it.

  320. Michelle Jephcott on May 13, 2010 at 12:07 pm

    If you were to win the gift certificate at Adorama what would you want to buy? I’d spend the money printing demos of products to show prospective clients! :)And if you won a lens rental what lens would you want to rent? Now THAT’S easy! This one: http://www.lensrentals.com/rent/nikon-500mm-f4g-ed-vr/for-nikon (So I can do some killer nature photography up in the Smoky Mountains *grin*)

  321. Tiffany on May 13, 2010 at 12:08 pm

    A new flash or lens. I have my eye on two different ones.

    Adorama: Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 SP XR Di II [IF]VCLensRentals.com: same or 70-200 2.8 i’ve seen listed here.

  323. MegganB on May 13, 2010 at 12:10 pm

    I believe it would be the same for both – I’ve been wanting to check out the 35mm 1.4.

  324. Angel Eyes on May 13, 2010 at 12:10 pm

    I would absolutely love the Nikon 35mm 1.8! I have been eyeballing for a while but never have the funds available. Thanks for doing such a great giveaway!

  325. Jennie on May 13, 2010 at 12:12 pm

    I don’t know for sure, but I’m eyeing that LED Macro ring light at Adorama and I’d probably rent a Canon 35L lens from lensrentals

  326. Noelle on May 13, 2010 at 12:14 pm

    I am looking to buy the Olypmus Evolt E3… so I could put it towards that! And I would rent the 12-60mm lens for olympus to see if I want to invest in that!

  327. Jenna on May 13, 2010 at 12:15 pm

    Winning the gift certificate would go towards the purchase of the 85mm 1.4 – Soooo dreamy!! And I would rent the 24mm lens.

  331. Chelsi on May 13, 2010 at 12:18 pm

    The gift card would go towards a speedlite flash. I could really use a good external flash.I would rent the AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8G lens. It would be a dream come true to hold that baby in my hands 🙂

  332. jen on May 13, 2010 at 12:18 pm

    If I would win a gift certificate to Adoroma I would love to use it toward camera gear I desperately need….either pocket wizards or lenses. If I would win a week lens rental, I would love to try out Canon’s L series lenses. 😀

  333. Cayce Elms on May 13, 2010 at 12:19 pm

    If i won the $75 gift card i would use it towards a light box and if I won the lens rental I would rent some kind of a Macro lens.

    I’d buy some new CF cards or a lens hood.I’d love to try the Canon 50mm 1.2 L.

    HelloI am new to the photography world. I am currently taking a workshop with 503 Photography and have learned so much. Jessica is wonderful!!! If I were to win the $75 gift card to Adorama Camera Store perhaps I would use it towards the purchase of a SLR (I current borrow my father n laws Nikon D70) or more cards. If I were to win the lens rental I would rent a lens that I have never tried. Perhaps the Nikon 50mm f/1.4G AF-S….

    I’d use the Adorama gift certificate toward a new camera upgrade. I’d rent a macro lens, since I’ve never used one before.

    Well, I’m afraid my answers aren’t very original …. I need more memory cards, or perhaps I would splurge on purchasing lens caps for all my lenses since I can’t seem to keep track of any of them … thank goodness for uv filters to protect lenses, right? The next lens I am eye-balling is the Canon 24-70 2.8. I’m thinking it would be an awesome portrait lens, and might even work for indoor sports like volleyball and basketball, assuming the gym is fairly well lit to begin with. Ummmm, getting excited just thinking about it!

  342. JoAnne Bacon on May 13, 2010 at 12:25 pm

    If I won the adorama prize, I would put it towards the purchase of a battery grip for my 5d MarkII. If I won the week rental, I would rent the 85mm 1.2, since everyone raves about this lens 🙂

  343. Annie Heng-Tse on May 13, 2010 at 12:26 pm

    I would get a flash diffuser from Adorama and rent a 24-70 2.8 lens.

  345. Sarah on May 13, 2010 at 12:27 pm

    I’m super brand new to photography (and LOVING it!) and still need just the basics so I’d probably get a memory card reader and a lens shade from Adorama. I really want to rent the Canon 24-70 so I can understand why it’s so great. Lenses are a bit confusing to a beginner but I’m seeing that you just have to try them out.

  346. Shelly Morales on May 13, 2010 at 12:28 pm

    I have a 35mm 1.4 lens on my wishlist at Adorama! I would rent a wide angle lens for my upcoming trip to the desert.

  347. Elizabeth B on May 13, 2010 at 12:28 pm

    If I won the gift certificate, I would definitely put that money toward a lighting kit. Been researching this purchase for some time now. If I won the lens rental, I would rent a fisheye for an up coming wedding I have.

  348. Megan on May 13, 2010 at 12:30 pm

    I would buy a reflector and I would rent a canon lens 24-70.It would be so exciting to win!

    Okay… really? This is way too difficult of a decision. There are so many things I would want to order from Adorama, but If I could only have one right now, it would be a Sekonic light meter. As far as lens rental goes, I would like to try the Nikon 70-200 2.8 Version II lens and see how it compares to my version I lens. Thanks!

  352. Kelly Garvey on May 13, 2010 at 12:33 pm

    I would use it to help buy a new camera! I’m saving up! I want one that can go to a higher ISO with less noise!

    If I won the gift card to Adorama, I’d put it toward the 5d MkII I plan to buy soon. As for the lens from lensrental.com, I’d probably rent the 50mm 1.4 lens.

  355. Sarah on May 13, 2010 at 12:37 pm

    ooooh! I would put the gift certificate to Adorama towards a Lensbaby 🙂 And I would love to rent the Sony 35mm f1.4 G….

  356. Kelly Garvey on May 13, 2010 at 12:38 pm

    I would LOVE to rent the Nikkor 18-200mm F/2.8 lens to see if I like it. I feel like I need that lens so bad for weddings but it is so much money, I’d love to try it out first!

    I really could use a real backdrop stand. My home-made one isn’t cutting it in my small room. I would also love to rent a 70-200 and try out that bad boy.

  363. Darlene on May 13, 2010 at 12:49 pm

    I know exactly what I want if I win! From Adorama, I’d get a Hoodman Loupe so I can see my camera screen outdoors. And from LensRentals, I would rent the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 to use at kids’ basketball games. Please, please pick me!

  364. Courtney on May 13, 2010 at 12:50 pm

    I would definitely go for the 28mm 1.8, or the 85mm 1.8…I think these 2 would round a good, solid collection of lenses to start with until I can afford L glass!

  365. geneil on May 13, 2010 at 12:53 pm

    so many things… probably would get a light for indoor portraits. And I’d love to rent either a 35mm 1.4 lens or an 85 mm.

  366. Yu on May 13, 2010 at 12:54 pm

    I’d buy Memory card! and rent 85mm nikkor lens!

  367. Krista Campbell on May 13, 2010 at 12:55 pm

    I’d put the $75 towards a new lens since I only owe 1 at the moment. I’d definitely rent the 35mm 1.4- this is a lens I’d really love to buy someday!

  374. Kristen Soderquist on May 13, 2010 at 1:02 pm

  375. tamara on May 13, 2010 at 1:04 pm

    I would buy cf cards and I would rent 85mm

  376. Darci on May 13, 2010 at 1:05 pm

    Adoroma gift card…I would buy neoprene case(s) for my camera/lenses and a reflector.Lens rental…I would try a 50mm lens. I’ve been wanting to try one!

  377. Diane on May 13, 2010 at 1:05 pm

    I would use the $75 gift card to buy an external flash that I would love to own. The lens rental? 50mm f/1.4

  378. Katherine Wall on May 13, 2010 at 1:09 pm

    I need a new CF card! I would want to rent a macro lens. Thank you!

  379. Kelley Cook on May 13, 2010 at 1:10 pm

    If I won the Aorama Gear Contest, I would put the $ toward purchasing a wireless studio light trigger, so that I would not be attached to my sync cord during studio sessions/weddings. I would also like to rent the Tamron 18-270mm f/3.5-f/6.3 DI-II B.I.M. VC LD Aspherical (IF) AF Zoom with Macro, for Nikon Digital SLRs to consider as a purchase in the near future. Reason: I am wanting to plan a trip to Disney World during the next year (my family has never been) and I do not want to lug a camera bag full of lenses. (It’d be like packing an extra child! lol) Of course I would want to capture every priceless expression on my 7 year old and 3 year old’s faces as they experienced the “magic”, and I do not want to miss any photo ops due to varying distances/lighting situations. Now, if only there were a contest to win a family trip to Disney! 😉

  380. sandy on May 13, 2010 at 1:14 pm

    i’d love to have the Sony Hot Shoe Adapter for the Alpha Digital SLR Cameras

  381. Yolanda on May 13, 2010 at 1:15 pm

    I would buy a reflector and a rubber lens hood from Adorama. I would rent a prime 50 mm or 85 mm lens ti get a feel for the difference in using prime lenses.

  382. cynthia on May 13, 2010 at 1:20 pm

    adorama: cases for storage cardsrental: 24-70 canonthx!

  383. Katie Cann-McTaggart on May 13, 2010 at 1:22 pm

    If I won the Adorama gift card, I would put the money into either a Canon ST-E2 Speedlight Transmitter or a new camera bag. I have been needing both these things for a while now. If I won a lens rental, I would probably want to try out the Canon 85mm f/1.2 L II. That lens looks SO cool!

  384. Kimberly on May 13, 2010 at 1:24 pm

    the gift certificate? towards the 50mm lens (i am a newbie kit lens person, who is now shooting manual yeah!) and i can combine birthday, late mother’s day, and some other holiday to pick up the rest of it!the rental? 24-70 2.8 because i am obsessed with becky earl and that is what she uses…ha ha ha ha! no. seriously, though. i am.

  385. Breanne on May 13, 2010 at 1:28 pm

    I’d probably buy Gary Fong’s Lightsphere diffuser. I’d probably rent either an 85mm or 35mm prime.

  386. sharon Blankenship on May 13, 2010 at 1:31 pm

    I would put the money toward a new tripod (mine broke this week) and for the lens rental, I would rent the 70-200 2.8 lens

  387. Alison M on May 13, 2010 at 1:37 pm

    I could use a new on camera flash, or some CF cards so I would totally use the gift card for one of those!! As for a lens rental I would love to try the canon 24-70!!

  388. natalie on May 13, 2010 at 1:37 pm

    i would love to just look and see what i could get – nothing in particular right now jumps out but i would definitely have fun.which lens? gosh, this is hard also – probably 24-70 canon

  389. Christy on May 13, 2010 at 1:39 pm

    a 70-300 or an 18-270 Tamron lens would be my choice of rental, and if I win the Adorama gift, I’d probably use it to go towards the purchase of this lens.

  390. Alison M on May 13, 2010 at 1:40 pm

    Already a fan on facebook, posted to my news feed about contest!!

  391. Lisa on May 13, 2010 at 1:43 pm

    if I were to win the gift certificate I would purchase a Nikon 50mm 1.4 and if I were to win the lens rental I would rent a Nikon 105mm f/2.8G macro lens……

  392. Krystal on May 13, 2010 at 1:43 pm

    I think I’d buy something towards better lighting. Maybe a flash unit or maybe just a light shovel. I would rent a nice zoom lens to play with and to take some nice sports pictures of my kids.

  393. KimS on May 13, 2010 at 1:43 pm

    If I won the Adorama certificate I would put it towards a new lens…the 85/1.8. If I won the free lens rental I would rent the new 70-200 (dream lens)!

  396. Heather on May 13, 2010 at 1:57 pm

    If I won a gift certificate to Adorama I would buy a new lens for my camera maybe a marco or fisheye. As for lensrental I would rent a macro or fisheye! 🙂

  397. Andrea on May 13, 2010 at 1:58 pm

    Oh, if I won $100 to Adorama I would buy the 50mm f1.4 that I really want, or maybe the 35mm, I haven’t decided yet. And if I won a lens rental, I would probably rent the Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 VR II. I really want to play with that one. I hear it’s a lot nicer than the previous 70-200mm.

  398. Eleni on May 13, 2010 at 1:58 pm

    If I won I would buy a fisheye or macro lens.If I could rent I would rent either a fisheye or macro lens as well to roundout the different types of photos in my portfolio.

  399. Shillawna Ruffner on May 13, 2010 at 2:01 pm

    I would spend the Adorama gift card on the same lens I would rent…the Canon 50mm f/1.2. I’m obsessed with that lens and can’t wait to be able to afford to purchase one!!!

  400. Bobbi-Jo G. on May 13, 2010 at 2:02 pm

    I would put the money towards getting a Canon macro or fish eye lens (I am having the WORST time choosing which). Getting a gift cert. though would definitely give me the push I need! The same goes for the lens rental!

  401. Mitch M on May 13, 2010 at 2:04 pm

    If I won that GC, I’d probably end up buying a new bag or speedlight. Or maybe a new lens. If I won a lens rental it’d either be renting a huge lens and sitting out in the wetlands for a while, or the newer autofocus 105mm micro Nikkors. Gotta see if it’s worth upgrading from my f/4 manual focus 🙂

  402. Mitch M on May 13, 2010 at 2:04 pm

    I also ‘like’ mcp actions on FB. Can’t sell out to twitter yet though.

  403. Tiffany on May 13, 2010 at 2:07 pm

    If I won at adorama….probably more CF cards….lens rental….probably the canon 70-200 2.8is II

  404. Allison on May 13, 2010 at 2:08 pm

    I would put the Adorama money toward a bag that would actually fit my camera gear. I’m busting out of the seams of what I have at this point. And I would rent the Nikon 17-55mm f/2.8.

  408. Debbie on May 13, 2010 at 2:11 pm

    If I were to win the gift certificate I’d put it towards the purchase of a new L lens…I’ve been eyeing up a couple.And I’d try them out, of course, with the 1 wk rental certificate – looking at the 85mm or the 70-200mm at the moment…

  409. Susan Cohen on May 13, 2010 at 2:11 pm

    I’d like to by a 50 mm lens for my Nikon. I’m not sure what I’d rent, but I’m sure I could find something.

  410. stephanie on May 13, 2010 at 2:12 pm

    I have been saving up to upgrade my camera. I would for sure put it towards a new camera at adorama.

  411. Amber Skene on May 13, 2010 at 2:12 pm

    If I won the $75.00 gift certificate, I would put it towards the new camera I am wanting. I almost have enough saved up for the Conon 5D Mark II!And if I won the lens rental, I would rent the 24-70 mm L series lens, which is on my wish list!

  420. Greg H on May 13, 2010 at 2:20 pm

    I would put that gift certificate at adorama towards lighting equipment and I would want to check out the canon 100mm macro lens or a true fisheye lens would be fun.

  423. Thomas Li on May 13, 2010 at 2:24 pm

    I have actually been thinking about getting the Canon waterproof housing for the Powershot S90 I recently bought. As for the lens rental, I think I would want to get the 70-200mm 2.8 IS II lens or the 35mm 1.4 lens.

    If I were to win a gift card from Adorama I would buy more CF cards..you can never have too much of them.And if I won a lens rental for a week I would rent the Nikkor 20mm f2.8 lens to try and see if I liked it.

  429. Jenn Straznicky on May 13, 2010 at 2:31 pm

    I would probably put it towards a new lens. For a lens rental, I would rent a wide angle lens!

  430. Trude on May 13, 2010 at 2:32 pm

    Oooh great giveaway! From Adorama I would probably put it towards a photo book, I’ve heard nothing but great things about them and I’d like to do that as a type of portfolio to bring with me. 🙂 I’d definitely rent the Canon 100mm lens, that’s what I’m thinking of buying next but you gotta do the test run first! 🙂

  431. Kara on May 13, 2010 at 2:40 pm

    Probably a new background stand – mine’s busted!Also I would love to rent a 70-200L IS 2.8 – beautiful!

  432. Becca on May 13, 2010 at 2:41 pm

    I dont know what I would buy! Probably either the 50mm 1.4 or 85mm 1.8 since $75 off would put that closer to my price range . . . I would definitely rent the 24-70 2.8. . . Ok maybe not definitely but probably 🙂

  433. LeeYen on May 13, 2010 at 2:43 pm

    If I could win the giftcard from Adorama…. it would go towards a Kelly Mooore Bag 🙂

  434. Lisa on May 13, 2010 at 2:43 pm

    I think I would rent a 135mm or a prime lens I don’t already have. From Adorama I think I must get many more batteries for my camera. Sorry -boring but necessary!

  435. jessica on May 13, 2010 at 2:44 pm

    At Adorama, either Holga film and accessories or going towards monitor calibration. From LensRentals.com, the Canon 24-70mm 2.8L since I here so many good things about that being an essential lens and one I don’t have and probably couldn’t afford for awhile. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  436. Amy on May 13, 2010 at 2:46 pm

    I have had my eye on a light scoop and some backdrops from Adorama. The gift certificate would come in very handy. As for the lense, I would probably look for a prime lense with zoom capability. It would be great to have both! Thanks for offering the giveaway!

  437. Aubrea Schupp on May 13, 2010 at 2:58 pm

    I need new seamless paper and would love to play with a 35mm 1.4 lense. Thanks for the contest!!

  438. Elisabeth Lind on May 13, 2010 at 3:00 pm

    I would buy one of those hood loops for the camera for when we are doing landscape work (from adorama) to rent it would be the tilt shift lens hands down 🙂

    As for Adorama – I would finally buy the 24-70 lens I kept renting last fall. I heart it!As for renting – Fisheye, fisheye, fisheye!!! I’m dying to do some experimenting this summer.

  441. Jodi Sware on May 13, 2010 at 3:08 pm

    Wow! My wish list is long….Jill-e “Jack” camera bag, Big softbox, 50mm 1.4 , 24-70 or a set of pocket wizards. So that’s my list for Adorama and the lens i think i would rent is a fisheye since i have never used one and they look like a lot of fun! Keeping my fingers crossed!

  442. Karyn Collins on May 13, 2010 at 3:09 pm

    This is so much fun .. reading what everyone would buy/rent if they won.Here’s mine: From Adorama… I’d put my winnings toward the purchase of a Canon Speedlite 580 EX II and from LensRentals…I’d definitely want to put my hands on a Canon EF 70-200 F2.8L.

  443. Becca Caniglia on May 13, 2010 at 3:24 pm

    If I were to win a gift card from Adorama, i would put it towards some reflectors. If I won a week of free lens rental, I would probably rent the canon 35 1.4.

  444. rene on May 13, 2010 at 3:27 pm

    If I were to win the Adorama gift certificate I’d purchase a 28-135mm lens for my Canon.

    I feel like a kid in a candy shop!Boy-oh-boy — I guess I’d put the Adorama gift certificate towards the purchase of my first DSLR! I’m thinking of the Canon 50D. Or waiting for the 60D. Or even a Panasonic GF1…such a difficult decision!For the rental, I think I’d wait until a next safari to rent some totally amazing super zoom which I’d not buy for now!Thanks again for the fun and education!

  448. Vikki O'Brien on May 13, 2010 at 3:30 pm

    If I won Adorama gift card I would put it toward my new 7d!! And I would rent the 24-70 2.0 to see if it will be my next lens!!!

  450. Robert Wyatt on May 13, 2010 at 3:39 pm

    If I were to win I would use the Addorama gift to help finance addtional Compact Flash cards and I would use lensrentals(already use them BUNCHES..they are GREAT to work with) to rent either a Canon 200 F2 or a 300 2.8

  451. Lori L. Stottlemyre on May 13, 2010 at 3:40 pm

    An 85mm lens! OMG I need one so bad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  452. Gina on May 13, 2010 at 3:46 pm

    My next purchase will likely be the Nikon 50mm 1.4. Would love to try out a Nikon 85mm 1.4.

  453. Kellie on May 13, 2010 at 3:56 pm

    I would look into buying a new camera body at Adorama, or buy a backdrop stand.I would rent either a macro lens for fun or the 70-200mm zoom for a wedding I’m doing in June.

  454. Tara on May 13, 2010 at 4:05 pm

    Even though I love natural light, I think I’d get a Nikon SB400 flash from Adorama to use for indoor shots at home when natural light is scarce. And as far as lenses… hmm… Probably the Nikon 70-200mm 2.8. Or the 50mm 1.4. 🙂

  455. Maggie on May 13, 2010 at 4:06 pm

    I would use the gift card toward a new camera bag and I would want to rent a faster lens compatible with my Sony body to use for my sports photos.

  456. Court on May 13, 2010 at 4:06 pm

    if i were to win the certificate i would probably use it for a “new” used lens or a lens converter.and if i were to win the rental i would have to go with zeiss 85mm f/1.4

  457. dhana on May 13, 2010 at 4:07 pm

    if i were to win the gc at Adorama, I would buy a lens hood for my canon 85 f/1.8 lens. If I were to win the lens rental, I would rent the 24-70 f/2.8 or the 70-200 f/2.8 IS, or a tilt shift lens.

  458. Lisa K on May 13, 2010 at 4:08 pm

    I would put the money from Adorama towards an battery gripI would rent and EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM Lens .

  459. Robyn on May 13, 2010 at 4:13 pm

    If I were to win the GC from Adorama, I would want to buy the ESSENTIAL 70-200 2.8l IS that I have been salivating over…. hey every little bit helps! 🙂 And I would rent the 85mm if I were to win a lens rental 🙂

  460. julie on May 13, 2010 at 4:14 pm

    I would rent the 70-200 lens and the gift card would go towards a back up camera body.

  461. tamsen donker on May 13, 2010 at 4:15 pm

    if i were to win the gift certificate it would totally go toward my savings for the Nikon D700! If I won the lens rental, I would LOVE to try out the fisheye!!!!

  462. lisa on May 13, 2010 at 4:17 pm

    I would finally by a flash. Or maybe a bag that fits more of my lenses.For sure I would rent the Nikon 70-200mm 2.8 lens…or, maybe a macro to play with for a week.

  463. Ally Brennan on May 13, 2010 at 4:19 pm

    From Adorama, probably put that money toward one of the many lenses I want to buy. Lens Rental: There are a number of lenses I want to rent, but I think maybe the Canon 24-70 f/2.8L or the 70-200 IS.

  467. Amanda on May 13, 2010 at 4:26 pm

    I am putting every penny aside for a 7d so the gift card would go toward my new 7d.Lens for a week- tough decision but I would probably say the tilt shift lens- Probably wouldn’t buy one but would like to try it out.

  468. Karen Knapper on May 13, 2010 at 4:26 pm

    If you were to win the gift certificate at Adorama what would you want to buy? – I would definitely put the money towards a 24-70 that I’m dying to have. I just got a 50mm and I want a zoom! And if you won a lens rental what lens would you want to rent? – I want to try out the 85mm.

  469. Ally White on May 13, 2010 at 4:29 pm

    Well a $75 gift card to Adorama would be awesome! I would definetly use it to buy monitor calibration software. And if i were to rent a lens i would want to try out a micro lens. Maybe a Nikkor 60mm f/2.8 🙂

  470. Shelly Davis on May 13, 2010 at 4:34 pm

    If I won I don’t know what I would buy at Adorama…..the list is long…..softbox by lasolite,reflectors, extra batteries, right angle viewer, and on and on…..As for the lens rental….the new Nikon 16-35 f/4…I really want to try it out, I think it’s my next lens purchase.

  471. Kirsti Fleming on May 13, 2010 at 4:37 pm

    If you were to win the gift certificate at Adorama I would want to put it towards a Tamron AF 90mm f/2.8 lens, although I am in need of lighting as well. And if I won a lens rental I would rent a macro lens as I don’t have one and want to try out all compatable brands before buying…what if the Tamron isn’t for me?! 🙂

  472. Galina on May 13, 2010 at 4:40 pm

    If you were to win the gift certificate at Adorama what would you want to buy?- I would put it towards getting AlienBeeAnd if you won a lens rental what lens would you want to rent?probably Canon 24-70

  473. Brittney on May 13, 2010 at 4:43 pm

    If I won the Adorama GC, I’d most definitely buy a new lens or some more CF Cards 🙂 If I wont the lens rental, I’d rent the 35mm 1.4L or the 100mm macro 2.8 – been itching to try/buy both 🙂

  482. Sheryl Ridley on May 13, 2010 at 4:57 pm

    I’d probably put it toward a lensbaby, and rent a canon 70-200 2.8l lens…

  483. stacy on May 13, 2010 at 5:08 pm

    if i won, my gift certificate would be used to buy maybe a small shootsac to carry an extra lens with me on shoots. my rental would be the 24-70mm. as a newbie, it seems to be the lens that most photogs carry and i am hung up on my prime lens right now…what if i dish out the dough and don’t like it??

  484. EBPitcher on May 13, 2010 at 5:09 pm

    If I won the GC, I think I’d put it toward LR3 when it’s released. As for the lens rental, I think I’d like to play with a 35mm or 85 mm f/1.4 lens for my Sony.

  485. Catharine on May 13, 2010 at 5:12 pm

    I would love to have a wireless trigger for my camera, so helpful in taking some self portraits with my son!

  486. Sarah Vasquez on May 13, 2010 at 5:21 pm

    I would put a giftcard towards a new lens or possibly another memory card. I would probably rent a fisheye or an 85mm to see if I want or need it.

  487. Natalija on May 13, 2010 at 5:25 pm

    I would put that gift certificate toward either an underwater housing enclosure for my Mark II or more memory cards. As for renting a lens…I would love to rent the Canon 135mm f/2L USM lens.

  488. Angela Tomczak on May 13, 2010 at 5:27 pm

    From Adorama, I would put it towards a background system! And I would rent the 24-70mm Nikor from LensRental! ah, dreams….. THANKS!

  489. Sherri Dale on May 13, 2010 at 5:32 pm

    would love to try the Sigma 8mm f/3.5 Fisheye lens. as far as equipment goes, I am in need of a backup camera, so I would use the gift certificate to upgrade my camera and keep my xti as a backup.

  490. laura dossantos on May 13, 2010 at 5:34 pm

    At Adorama I would buy a wide angle lens that I have been eyeing…And at lensrental I would definitely rent a telephoto lens to try out! that is the next lens on the list!

  491. Nicole on May 13, 2010 at 5:39 pm

    If I could win the gift certificate to Adorama I would by the Canon 50 mm 1.4 and if I won the lens rental I would LOVE to rent the Canon 70-200 f/2.8 IS!!!

  492. Amber on May 13, 2010 at 5:41 pm

    I would purchase a telephone zoom lens and would like to rent a macro lens.

  493. Melanie Pitcher on May 13, 2010 at 5:41 pm

  494. Misty Bradley on May 13, 2010 at 5:53 pm

    I would buy 35mm 1.4. I would probably rent the 70-200.

  500. Tara S. on May 13, 2010 at 5:58 pm

    Same answer to both – I would buy/rent a 50mm, f/1.4 lens w/ auto focus because the aperture on my kit lens is not nearly large enough.

  501. Flo on May 13, 2010 at 6:09 pm

    With the gift card I would buy additional memory cards. With the lens rental I would rent the Nikkor 105 F2 DC. I have been dreaming of trying that lens for a long time 🙂

  502. Caroline on May 13, 2010 at 6:19 pm

    I would definitely buy and rent the Canon 24-70mm 2.8L. This lense has caught my eye for such a long time! Thanks for the chance!

  503. Missy on May 13, 2010 at 6:36 pm

    I need a wide-angle lens, so that’s what I would buy or rent from either of those places.

Since I upgraded the 5Dmkii, my cards are not large enough for too many of the files 🙁 If you won a lens rental what lens would you want to rent?I am trying to decide on my next lens to buy. I have heard wonderful things about the Canon 24-70mm… but I would also love to try the 85mm 1.2!!!

  524. Morgan on May 13, 2010 at 8:00 pm

    If I won the gift card, I could really use another memory card. And if I won the lens rental, probably a wide angle to take some fun, creative shots.

  525. Kelly on May 13, 2010 at 8:02 pm

    I would buy memory cards from Adorama and I would rent the 70-200mm 2.8

  528. Pamela S. on May 13, 2010 at 8:34 pm

    If I won the Adorama, I’d put it towards the lens I want to buy (Canon 24-70 f/2.8L). If I won the lens rental, I would rent the same lens! 🙂

  529. Ashley Schoenfeld on May 13, 2010 at 8:37 pm

    Adorama: I would put in towards an external flash…Sb600/or 800 which ever I caould talk the hubs into.Lens rental: Deffinitely the 24-70mm (nikon)

  530. Christy on May 13, 2010 at 8:38 pm

    The answer to both is the 50mm f/1.4

  531. Brenda on May 13, 2010 at 8:43 pm

    If you were to win the gift certificate at Adorama what would you want to buy?–strangely enough, I’d buy specialty film for my great-grandfather’s cameraAnd if you won a lens rental what lens would you want to rent?–a fisheye

  532. Stephanie LeBlanc on May 13, 2010 at 9:06 pm

    If I were to win the GC to Adorama, I’d put it towards a new 70-200mm. For a lens rental, I’d probably use it to play around with a few wide angle and fish eye lenses to decide which one I want.

  533. Jennifer Officer on May 13, 2010 at 9:35 pm

    If I won a gift certificate, I would put it towards a new camera body. If I won the rental, I would try out a wide angle lens for my commercial work.

  534. Jen on May 13, 2010 at 9:50 pm

    I would buy a portable back drop stand from Adorama. And the lens I would rent would be the 35mm 1.4.

  535. Tori on May 13, 2010 at 9:57 pm

    I would use the Adorama GC towards the purchase of a new lens. Perhaps the 85mm or 50mm, but I’d probably rent one from LensRentals first to make up my mind. 🙂

  536. Cassie Sullivan on May 13, 2010 at 10:05 pm

    If I won I would get some new seamless paper and more CFs 🙂 I would definitely rent the 10.5 fisheye, i’m dying to try one!

  537. RM @ LMMP on May 13, 2010 at 10:07 pm

    If you were to win the gift certificate at Adorama what would you want to buy? I would buy a white balance lens cap and/or a battery grip for my D40.And if you won a lens rental what lens would you want to rent?I would love to rent the 70-200mm for the IHF photowalk. Or maybe even a Fisheye!

  538. kim schmidt on May 13, 2010 at 10:10 pm

    From amazon I’d get some more CF cards. Can never have too many! From lensrentals I’d rent the Canon 100L.

    I would put it toward a 50 mm lens. Right now I have the 24 – 105L lens which is great but I really would like a fixed lens for my infant shoots.If I won the lens rental I would rent a wide angle lens because that is also on my list of lenses to buy and I want to try one out.

  545. Kim L on May 13, 2010 at 10:31 pm

    If I won a gift certificate to Adorama, I would put it towards the purchase of a gently used 40d body. This would be such an upgrade for me!From Lens Rentals, it would be amazing to try one of the 85mm 1.2L.

  548. Lori Weinstock on May 13, 2010 at 10:34 pm

    If I won the gift certificate I would put it towards pocket wizards and if I won the lens rentals it would be for a good wide angle!

  549. Danielle on May 13, 2010 at 10:34 pm

    I would rent the 50 1.2. I would probably get a new camera bag with the gift card!

    From adorama I would probably get something like a lens bag or camera bag cause I don’t like mine, or maybe just some basics like memory cards. As far as the lens goes, I would want to try out something like a 17-50 2.8 or a 35 1.8, can’t decide what I want, but I need wider angles sometimes.

  557. Christine Weir on May 13, 2010 at 11:11 pm

    If I was to win a gift certificate from AdoramaI would buy a waterprof casing for my camera to capture my daughter’s first swim lessons and her first trip to teh beach this summer! I would love to rent a Cannon 50mm lens.

  559. Crystal on May 14, 2010 at 12:01 am

    I would buy a new lens…not sure which, but a nice Tamron lens probably 18-270mm with Vibration Reduction.I would rent one of the super awesome L series lenses for a Canon.

  560. Meagan on May 14, 2010 at 12:02 am

    Ohhhh so many toys to consider… Right now I’d say a reflector kit!

  561. Meagan on May 14, 2010 at 12:04 am

    Ohhhh so many toys to consider… Right now I’d say a reflector kit! As forthe lens either a fisheye or 20mm

  562. Susan on May 14, 2010 at 12:08 am

    I’m shopping for a new lens – so either way, I would either try out a lens or buy a new lens (going for the 50mm lens) 🙂

  564. Laura on May 14, 2010 at 12:10 am

    I would put the 75$ in my lens fund that I am saving up for either a L zoom lens or a prime wide angle…And I would love to rent the 24-70mm to see if that is what I want to buy and also I have my first wedding coming up next weekend, so I would actually be able to shoot it in the way it deserves!Thank you so much!

    If you were to win the gift certificate at Adorama what would you want to buy? I would put it towards Lightroom Software And if you won a lens rental what lens would you want to rent? I have always drooled over this lens ‘Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS’ I would love to rent it for a week.

    If I win Adorama, I’m all over some medium format film for my holga addiction.If it’s a lens rental, I want to try the Canon 35mm L lens!

    I’d love to buy from adorama a battery grip for my camera. I would definitely rent the Nikon 105mm macro!

  574. Linda aka lglw on May 14, 2010 at 1:51 am

    Oh, this is hard. I guess I would either put it toward a new lens or on a memory card.

  575. Linda on May 14, 2010 at 2:02 am

    Put it on my Face Book.

    I would buy a 13 ft air cushioned lightstand or I would get a Lastolite tri-grip reflector.

    I would want to rent a canon 24-70 2.8 I’m taking a workshop the beginning on June and want SO badly to rent a lens to go with me 🙂 I want to buy a new one and have been stalking this one for quite awhile 🙂 Would love to try it out before the big purchase!

  581. Michelle on May 14, 2010 at 4:03 am

    I would really like to rent the Nikon 70-200mm 2.8 VRII – I’ve had my eye on it for quite a while!I would probably use the gift card to purchase a new CF memory card, I would like one that is a bit faster than the one I use currently.

    I have an MCP banner on my blog

  583. Janice Kervin on May 14, 2010 at 4:35 am

    If I won the Adorama card I would put it towards more lighting. For a lens rental I’d probably go with a 24-70 L.

    Lensrentals.com I would rent a Nikon 14-24mm lens, or a Nikon 17-55mm lens or one of the nikon macros such a the 60mm or the 105mm.from adorama I would use the gift certificate to help purchase a new flash.

  589. Christina on May 14, 2010 at 6:59 am

    I’d want to buy some longer seamless paper. As for rentals, I’d go for the 85mm or 105mm. I still can’t decide which one I want to buy. To macro or not to macro? That is the questions… LOL!

  590. jenney on May 14, 2010 at 7:08 am

    This would be my “dream come true” win!!At Adorama – I want a portable backdrop stand. I’d really love to be able to set up a small studio-type spot in my dining room for clients. I think being able to offer solid background-type pictures would help boost some sales for me {badly needed right now!}For the lens rental – I’m dying to try to the 24-70 2.8 lens from Canon!!! I’d love to buy it but renting it would be great too. 😉

  591. Megan on May 14, 2010 at 7:11 am

    Wow… all the choices at Adorama make my head spin. I am debating between a white balance lens cap and more CF cards.If I got to pick a lens to try out, it would likely be the 24-70 2.8 L. I have the Tamron version in for calibration at the moment and I miss that focal range!

  592. Ruth E on May 14, 2010 at 7:29 am

    I would use the Adorama gift certificate to help purchase pocket wizards and the lens I would LOVE to rent is the 85mm….sweet stuff!

  593. Sarah Andreotti on May 14, 2010 at 7:41 am

    From Adorama I would get a bag that holds just my camera so I can take it with me easier when I’m just running out. For a lens, I would get a fun fish eye!

  594. Kim Bolyard on May 14, 2010 at 8:00 am

    I would probably use the $75 towards a lens I have been wanting….I would love to rent/try out the canon 70-200….want to practice with that on sports photos of my daughter playing competitive soccer for her senior year of high school.thanksKim Bolyard
