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!

    I’m strongly considering an Nikon V1 + FT1 and 70-300mm VR as a fairly light-weight “super tele” option for my upcoming three week trip to Malaysia. This grip would make that combination even better.

  • Albert Martinez

    First you give me the grip, and then I had a reason to buy the camera 😉

  • siuguy0521

    I want the grip!!!

    • Ed Constable

  • PJS

    Winning this would be the first step toward my ownership of the V1! Just what I need – another Nikon body!!

  • I saw this on NR last week and I liked it. I just bought my wife a V1 last week and now I can appreciate this product. Looking for a Nikon grip, I am now concerned about the tripod mount not lining up with the lens axis so this grip may be the answer!

  • Would suit my V1 perfectly!
