On October 4, 2011, I announced a new Canon camera giveaway.

My pals at Adorama and I decided to give away one last Canon 5D MK II. Tens of thousands of you entered the contest, but there can be only one winner.

Our random number generator picked: Brian DeVito@bdevit as the winner. Way back on October 4, 2011, Brian correctly tweeted the contest link and the rest is history.

My good friend Joel has had the brand new camera box sitting under his desk just waiting for the news. The camera will soon be on its way directly from Joel at Adorama in New York to Brian. Thanks for entering Brian and congratulations. I hope the new camera serves you well.

If you didn’t win – don’t despair – there’s a new contest for you to enter. I’m giving away a choice of a Nikon or Canon super fast, pro-level f/2.8 stabilized 70-200 lens. The latest USA version even. Get details and how to enter the lens give away contest information here.

Good luck to all.
