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!

    Hello and wow1 Digital has come a long ways!

    Some of these responses border on ridiculous. Like “If I win I’ll buy a V1”, “now I can hold my V1 with my 70-200mm attached”, “it seems more comfortable the the GR-N1000” and so on. It will cost $35 + shipping, glued on for life you hope, it’s not contoured front or side, edge close to lens mount and raised and so on. A nice inexpensive grip for V1. I have the Nikon GR-N1000, $89 + free shipping. Does not interfere with FT-1, grip does not go around side,nice fit on bottom with a lip that goes up to just below lcd and prevents camera twist. If you go out shooting with a 4 or 8 gb card that’s means you will have to remove grip, if you go out with a less than fully charged battery you will have to remove grip, if you use the FT-1 the rule of thumb is tripod with lens mounted to tripod head (correct NR). Any lens without tripod mount is hand holdable but the choice is yours to remove or leave the grip on because of tripod socket.

    Mr. Franiec makes great products. My choice is the GR-N1000. BTW if your choosing because of $, that’s understandable just be honest.
