Nikon 1 V1 custom grip giveaway

What can I win?

In this giveaway you can win a brand new Nikon 1 V1 custom grip by Richard Franiec (camera obviously not included). This grip is designed specifically for comfort and safety when handling heft of Nikon V1, especially when coupled with FT-1 adapter and heavy lenses. The grip does not obstruct battery/card door and preserves original location of tripod socket on center line of the lens. Once applied the grip becomes an integral part of V1. The grip is individually machined from high grade aluminum alloy, glass bead blasted then anodized for durability. It attaches to the V1 with clear transfer VHB tape known for ultimate bonding power. Custom V1 Grip (CG-V1) will be available in second part of March 2012 for $34.95 plus shipping.

How do I win?

The rules are simple: leave a comment to this blog post. That's all. One comment per person please. Don’t forget to add your email address in the provided field (it will not be visible to the public and it will only be used to notify you in case you are the winner). I will close all comments in one week and will randomly pick the winner.

The best part?

This giveaway is open to anyone and is not restricted to US residents only, everyone is welcomed to participate. This giveaway is void where prohibited by law. All taxes are the responsibility of the winner. The grip will be shipped to the winner in the second week of March, 2012. The price cannot be shipped to countries embargoed by the United States.

Good luck!

    The V1 is a great little camera, and this grip looks like a ‘must have’ piece of kit!

  • Ike Saah

    Seems to be more confortable than the GR-N1000! Also available in white?

    My wife loves the V1

  • Wesley Leung

    I bought a grip from Frank before for Canon S90 couple of years ago. It’s pretty awesome. Hope I can get a free one for the V1.

  • GD

    Very cool; I can see something like this making a real difference to the comfort of the V1. I’ve been thinking of getting my daughter one for her birthday in a couple of weeks, so the timing of this would be awesome.

  • this would be nice 🙂

  • funnyface
  • Melissa

    Cool!!!! That would make a very capable camera an even nicier one to handle all times! Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Thanks fot the opportunity! 🙂

  • Mark Harris

    Recently picked up the V1 and just learning it’s features. This grip looks pretty good and very useful, especially if you decide to use the FT1.

  • Henri

    Ow, that grip would be perfect for my V1, it would be a nice upgrade from the orriginal (small) grip. It would feel a bit more like my D7000!

  • should really be part of Nikon’s original parts!

  • Andrew Hayes

    Sweeeeet – gaaahhhhhhh!

  • James

    Just what I need!

  • Piotr Gryzowski

    Veni, Vidi, Vici V1 🙂

  • FX DX

    Just need to win this grip and V1, so I could use this grip. If not I will just put this grip on my d800 and call it D800G.

  • Eric

    Awesome, must have it.

  • Mandrake

    Me! Me! Me!

  • Kai


  • am_a_guest

  • Vince

    Count me in!

  • Bill

    Neat little grip makes it look like it’s bigger brothers

  • Craig L

    Yes! If I win, I’ll have tO buy a Nikon V1! It’s like an Old episode of Bugs Bunny when Dadfy Duck (posing as a salesman) tells the guy (after blowing up his house) that he will sell him a new house to go with the door knob (holding). LOL! I love these custom grips!

  • seb

    YEAHHHHHH ! i’m interested ! V1 look geat with this grip !

  • jorg

    i never sleep

  • KrzysztofP

    It’s a very nice addon!

  • Mikycoud

    Sorry y’all. I got the feeling this one is mine!

  • Sven

    Should be a great improvement for the V1. I have used the camera and it felt a little bit loose without a grip.

  • Neil

    Winning this would make the camera big enough to actually hold when attached to my 70-200 monster lens and adapter! Keeping fingers crossed.

  • I could use one 🙂

  • Awesome accessory for V1!

  • I’ve really really considered one of these little cameras, i think it’d be a nice pair with my D800 :p

  • Sylvesterii

    A must-have accessory. Don’t know what Nikon was thinking leaving it basically gripless. too slippery.

  • peek

    Oh…yes…I see my name on it

  • Emile

    Great give away! I would love to have a Franiec grip for my new V1!

  • Paul Richards

    Great idea Makes this camera even better!

  • Eric

    Nice grip!

  • Mike

    OK, gimme it. I’ll put it on eBay with a $50 reserve and it’ll be gone in 3 days.
