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!

    Mirrorless cameras are probably the future of photography, there is just no way companies could keep justifying the mechanical shutter/mirror and pentaprisms for much longer.

    wow, that grip looks like the missing thing that all Nikon 1’s *should* have had!

    I’d luv to add that to mine!

  • Roy

    Great grip. Great V1. What a pair.

  • First commercial shooting using my Sony camera together with Nikon V1 with 10-100 zoom for a video shooting. Quality is fine for me but beware of low light because the LCD vision is much nicer than final footage….. also have to beware of the active VR when pan the camera horizontally.

  • Enrico

    Awesome idea for the grip. Hope they introduce that to future v1 models.
