Adorama, the leading supplier of professional video, photographic and consumer electronics products, opened registration for the Adorama NAB Great Giveaway Sweepstakes. Three lucky NAB 2013 attendees will walk away with the hottest new cinema cameras on the market: the Blackmagic Cinema Camera, the Sony PMW-200 or the Canon C100, with values ranging from nearly $3,000 to over $6,000.
“We are really looking forward to this year’s NAB show. In addition to raffling off some amazing prizes, we’ll be showcasing a full range of pro video camera solutions at our booth, with gear for everyone from the weekend hobbyist to the 24/7 professional,” says Abby Hessney, marketing manager at Adorama. “Plus, Adorama specialists will be onsite to answer any production and postproduction questions attendees may have. If that’s not what someone’s looking for at NAB, they can still drop in and power up their phones and other electronics at our special NAB charging station – and who doesn’t need that?”
