  1. Congratulations on the 10 million hits Phil,
    If anyone on the net deserves an ovation it is you sir.

    Cheers

  2. I appreciate how you are always trying new technology, not just camera-wise, but blog/web app wise . . . this “live stream” sounds exciting and fun for all of us who “qualified” for prizes. I’m wondering how long we’ll have to respond to the award announcement? I’ll be on set all day tomorrow . . . and then out in Joshua Tree National Park starting Thursday eve. I will plan to check my email via iphone as obsessively as possible tomorrow, and certainly will have time to respond Wednesday eve/ Thursday morning. What time zone are you in these days Phil? I’m in PST (Los Angeles).
    Anyhow, thanks for running such a generous contest, I’d be grateful for any of the prizes, and the CineSlider would be a fantastic addition to my kit, compatible with so many cameras! I shoot on all sorts of gear, and I own a 7D, so any of the DSLR stuff would also be much appreciated!

  3. Congratulations Philip! ive been watching your videos and reading your blogs for a few years now. It amazes me how big you’ve become in the past year. Keep going!

  8. Hi there! Congratulations and thanks for all the time and knowledge you share with us.
    About the quiz, you mentioned 20 questions… but when I passed there were only 19… Is it possible? Am I still in??

    Thanks!

  9. Congratulation on the milestone – very impressive!

    Not sure if its just me but I tried to watch the answers video and it gets to about 13 min in before cutting out – any chance of posting the answers in this blog?

    Looking forward to tomorrow.

  10. Hey, Phil, when I did the quiz there was only 19 questions. Got 16, which was more than 80%. Am I still in?

  15. Wow! That didn’t take long at all! Congrats on winning our hearts and minds, Phillip.

  16. SOLID BRO, SOLID!

    I check your site daily.

    Philip, you have a great, informative site, that lacks the pretension that has permeated “the biz”. Thanks for being a class act and a mellow bloke.

    cheers m8

  17. Congrats!

    I enjoy every bit of work that you come out with on here, and I love the amount of information that you share with us.
    Most of all, I enjoy that you reply to peoples questions and are down to earth – it’s awesome, I don’t think we could ask for anything or anyone better.

    I’m relatively new to the whole Photography/Video DSLR Scene, but I was influenced and inspired to take it up because of this site. Seeing all of the things that are possible with these cameras (I now proudly own a 550D), It’s really amazing, and I have you to thank for that.
    I’ve been following you (not literally) now since the start of year and haven’t looked back since.

    Thank You!

  18. Congrats Phil! And also a big thank you for putting in the time and effort it takes to maintain a blog like this! We all appreciate it.

  19. Congrats Phillip!

    Cute cats by the way.

    I didn’t know there was a twentieth question…

  20. hi Philip can you publish the list of winners by text on a page as here seems that ustream is non accessible

  21. Hi, Philip
    Have you ever tried the Canon WFT-E5A wireless file transmitter grip for the 7D? It says that it can interface with the EOS Utility Software and you can get full live view functionality while having control of up to ten cameras simultaniously. Sounds perfect for a DP or director doing a multicam shot. Don’t know if it works in movie-mode but it would be cool if you could find out!

  22. Congrats on the 10 mil hits Philip!!

    Got tickets to the Toronto Profusion, and hopefully I’ll cya around.

    You have to do a Toronto Meet Up!!!

  23. Well done for making the 10 million – your blog is inspirational. Helped inspire me to shoot 3min character piece/mini-documentary on Canon 5D Mark II.

    If you have the time or inclination please vote for my film “The Real Cinema Paradiso” in the DV Talent/BECTU shorts comp on Vimeo by liking it here – http://vimeo.com/groups/bectu/videos/11518464 Hope you enjoy the film.

    Best,

    Alex.

      1. Thanks Vicky. Currently shooting a campaign film for The Co-operative on Canon 5D Mark II/Sony EX3. Trying to raise the bar with this one.

        Did you watch the live draw last night? It was a hoot! Ax

  24. Live winners announcement was a total buzz win or lose, wished I’d had a G&T to steady my nerves! Congrats again to you Phil, only started reading/watching your blog over the last couple of months but I’m already utterly addicted!

  25. Hey Philip!

    I absolutely loved digging deep into your old posts to find the answers. The tricky ones were my favourite. Missed the live broadcast 🙁 but glad to see I might get a free entry in one of your workshops :).

    I’m from London (Ontario) so its about a 9 hour drive so if you decide to do it, let me know when, might be a sweet road trip!

    I’ve shot a handful of stuff on the 5D/7D/1D mark IV/T2i and the T1i so it’s been a blast seeing all the stuff you’ve been working on. Just beautiful work 🙂

    Let me know if that workshop is happening,

    Aaron

  26. Congratulations to all the winners!
    Those are some AMAZING Gifts,
    Now I wish I had tried harder 😛

  27. hi there,

    just wondering on prize allocation….quite a few people seem to have won multiple prizes?

    1. i bundled smaller prizes together otherwise the draw would have gone on for hours. All the main prizes were one per person. One person had his name come out twice, second time was redraw.

  28. @ Philip and the Winner of the Westdoc Conference
    If you can not attend I will gladly purchase the
    admittance ticket.
    I live in Los Angeles, and I’m wanting to attend it anyway.
    So if by chance you can not attend please notify Philip.

    http://www.thewestdoc.com/

    Thanks

  29. Phil on the winners Video @ 00:47:58
    WTH? lol
    All Americans are winners! Even if we admire you more:P

    All those EURO internationals just complain about the weather

    🙂

  30. ROFL 😛
    And again..Sorry I don’t mean to spam but….
    @ 00:48:33 on the winners video

    The difference between Americans and Europeans is…

    Drum roll please….

    the Answer is…

    Europeans shoot in the RAW!

    lol

  31. Congrats Phil – and wow what a huge amount of prizes!!!

    The real prize is you keeping this site up and contributing / inspiring so many people – you only have to look at the locations of the winners to realise how much of an impact you and this blog have made.

    Keep up the awesome work – Behind the scenes / Reviews / Blogs etc…

    20,000,000 will happen even faster!

    Cheers

    seb

  32. I thought it was 1 prize per person, but I see winners who got 2 prizes… I am disappointed, as I have no money for that cineslider ahahah

    1. all main prizes were one per person. I bundled smaller prizes like Cram/ FStop download into single prizes otherwise I would have been doing the draw all night!

  33. Wow.. Congrats to all winners.. man why am I so unlucky when it comes to lotteries.. 🙂

  34. Hey Philip.

    Thanks for an amazing giveaway and an even more amazing blog!

    I still can’t believe I won the Cineslider! I was just talking with a friend the day before about how I wish I could afford a slider/dolly. I never expected to win one! It was meant to be!!

    The Cineslider is gunna pair nicely with my Canon 5D mkII and will certainly bring my projects to a whole new level. I can’t wait to try it!

    Thanks Philip!

  35. Oh nooOoo!

    You mean I missed it? I saw the competition last week, but wasn’t feeling well enough to enter, so I waited because I thought I had two more weeks :(((

    …So now I feel ready, the rug is taken out from under me! LOL

    Poo!
