Gizmodo Shooting Challenge: Who Won The Canon Powershot G15?

Gizmodo Shooting Challenge: Who Won The Canon Powershot G15?

Loads of entries, hundreds of votes, but as always there can be only one winner. Today we announce the winner of the Canon Powershot G15 camera Gizmodo has to giveaway.

For the last two challenges, Gizmodo readers (and the friends they convince to vote for them) voted one weekly Shooting Challenge finalist through to the prize round to be judged and announced by Gizmodo editors.

The challenges included:

Power Photography
Summer Photography


Yunis Tmeizeh, Power Photography

Canon 600d, Sigma 70-200mm, iso100, f2.8, 1/20sec
Multiple shots taken of a light bulb. From the original , shattered then burnt. The series of images were then stacked over one another. Minor colour and curve adjustments were applied
Note: Filament bulbs aren’t that readily available anymore!

Top shot, Yunis! You fulfilled the brief while producing an amazing image in the process.

Yunis wins herself a Canon Powershot G15. The Canon Powershot G15 has finally arrived, and brings with it a level of sophistication we love in the fixed lens compact space. It sports a 12.1-megapixel CMOS sensor, a powerful DIGIC 5 processor, 5x optical zoom and an amazing lens which rocks an f/1.8-2.8 aperture. It’s sleek, stylish and beautifully retro with the ridged lens hood, pop-up flash and nested dials, and it’s a winner when it comes to user friendliness.

The Canon Powershot G15 kit Yunis picks up is valued at $599.95, and we’re thrilled to be giving this one away to the Gizmodo Shooting Challenge faithful.
