Want to win a Canon EOS 70D kit?
Canon will launch RUSH: The Photo Contest, a two-week photography challenge on Canon’s Facebook page, now live. Playing off the speed of the film, the user-generated photo contest asks participants to complete ten various photo-based challenges within specific time parameters (e.g., “You have one hour to shoot for the theme: Dedication. Go. Long Live the Rush.”) Each photo challenge winner will win a $250 online store credit to be used at the Canon Online Store, and Ron Howard will select one Grand Prize Winner to receive a Canon EOS 70D EF-S 18-135mm IS STM Camera Kit. Please see www.bit.ly/18iuwtA for the Official Rules. The contest will live on www.Facebook.com/CanonUSA.
A set of Canon cameras was used to shot the speed scenes of the film, among them the Canon EOS C300 (B&H | Adorama). and EOS 5D Mark III (price & specs).
