By the way, I didn't mean to be rude or insulting. I only wanted to point out some obvious facts.

I see you are new here.

Welcome to the clubhouse.

Have a beer. On me!

I hope the prize does not have the 'Flapping Mirror' syndrome that I have read about on this site -- I like my K10D BUT the first one I bought in Chelmsford, Essex in 2007 would not taken any photos- only show a black screen with a lot of purple lines on it ! That is why I use my FILM Pentaxes more ! No probs with them !

Just my luck, I need a k3 to take a decent photo, any chance of a loaner
I'm sure you don't need a K-3 to win. The camera you have is probably up for the job - unless it's broken. I don't see a reason why an *istD shouldn't be able to take a great picture (especially since it won't be judged based on a 4x6 foot print). Hey, even if all you have is a film 35mm that cost you 20 bucks, you should be able to enter and you have a chance. It's all on how good a picture you can take.

Also - You might be able to win with whatever lenses you have, as well. See this thread:

If I don't win it, I won't blame my equipment

Sure, I'll try. It's not like I won't be shooting pictures anyways. Why not post them up and submit them?

it's all about the "wow" factor!

Do you mean it? Is there any chance of photo not causing extreme wowels being the semifinalist chosen by judges?

I have photos of different kinds, can you be more specific about what would be preferred by judges?

As a follow-up to the successful giveaway we held in February, will soon be hosting a full-blown photo contest featuring a Pentax K-3 as the grand prize, courtesy of B&H Photo.

The photo contest will consist of multiple stages, where the first stage will be an open qualification round to determine 64 semi-finalists. We expect the contest to begin in late April, once B&H re-opens after the Passover holiday.

During the first stage of the contest, judges will select up to 48 semi-finalists, while a popular vote will nominate the rest for a total of 64.
There will be very few restrictions during this round:
  • Just submit your best photo, that's it!
  • Can be taken with any camera (non-Pentax is fine)
  • Can be taken at any point in time
  • Any and all post-processing is allowed
  • Must be taken by you
  • Open to members worldwide
I'd like to invite all our members to partake for a chance to win this wonderful camera! 3 runners-up as well as one honorable mention will also receive B&H gift cards.

So, just keep this contest in the back of your head the next time you're out to shoot, or pick a photo from your archives that really stands out. In the first round, it's all about the "wow" factor!

Good luck and stay tuned for more details
