Carson Optical Lens Cleaner Giveaway (& hi)

another week almost done- thank God.
but i've still got one more busy, running around, omg crazy week to go (KB needed another week to recover bless her heart, so next week we're on our own again....oy)...

REGARDLESS! i have a swell little giveaway for you from Carson Optical: Lens Cleaners

have you ever taken a good look @ your camera lens? no? then go do it & then report back with how dusty & smudged it is. yikes.
so now you realize that you should probably clean it- but with what?

your shirt sleeve? a tissue? windex? spit?

how about a lens cleaner made to do exactly what all of the above can't.
that's where Carson comes in. they make some nifty little cleaner pens that are small enough to fit in your pocket or bag & take care of business.


first you start off with this bad boy: the lens brush


this will brush away all of that dust & those small hairs & particles that get stuck around your rim.

then you flip it over & push up the finisher: the smudge remover


this will take care of fingerprints, oils & the ever present jelly smudges that appear on mine (thank you children)

& bam. nice clean lens ready for picture takin'.

pictures like this:


a cute, half naked toddler who is gazing longingly at her feathered friends:



(check out "turbo chicken" in the middle. heh.)

SO- who needs one? or 2? or all 3 of the above plus a few refills? (the refill pack is pretty kick ass because it includes a square cleaner too- perfect for your iPhone or iPad or whatever!)

Carson Optical is kindly giving everything you see above (minus the bebe & chickens) to 1 of my readers.
to enter all you need to to is leave a comment saying hey. you can also feel free to let me know what you shoot with & what your favorite lens is (you don't have too, but i'm nosey).
simple as that.

i'll leave this open over the weekend & announce a winner on monday. good luck!
Pin It!

Oh hi, hey, hi there. I REALLY need one of these. I was trying to take pics of the babe today and she kept grabbing the camera with her smudgy little fingers and my shirt was NOT getting it clean. Pretty pretty please pick me.

And since you asked, my favorite lens is my 1.8/50mm.

I totally need this! My new lens, some zoom thing is already dirty. Plus my iPad could use a little love. Your girls are adorable btw.

Lauren said...


I shoot with a Canon 7D and my favorite lens in my Sigma 30mm 1.4.


Kelley said...

Ohh! Want!!

Currently loving on a Nikon D5100 and my nifty fifty (f/1.8). Praying to win Mega Millions so I can get my 17-55 f/2.8 next without landing myself in divorce court.

C. Marks said...

Oh nifty! Count me in!

I shoot with a Nikon D40, a Nikon N65, and a Pentax Spotmatic F when I'm really feeling old-school. And my favorite lens? That's harder than choosing a favorite child (which, to be fair, is quite easy since I only have one), so I plead the 5th!

Christine said...

I could so use one of these! I'm a Canon girl and I love my 70-200mm lens!

Jamie said...

Hi!! I shoot with a Canon T1i. :o)

Bekah said...

Canon Rebel -poor thing is 4yrs old and has been dropped more times than I care to count

with a kit lens (I know, bad rap, but I dont think its so bad really)

and of course a nifty fifty

Mrs. Megan Boo said...

Hi!! I shoot with a Nikon D3100 I have the kit lenses but want the 35mm 1.8! :)

Sarah said...

Oooh, I could really use these! I shoot with a Nikon D90, and my favorite lens is my 50mm 1.4. Though to be fair, it's my only lens other than my kit lens so of course it's my fave! :)

Allison said...

I'm not super-duper fancy, but I use a Canon Rebel XS and my favorite lens is my 50mm 1.8

Open Roads Mama said...

looks like a wonderful product, would love to get my hands on it - my Nikon would too :)

Anonymous said...

I want!

I'm a total newb and have a Canon T1i with a 50 mm 1.8

Selena @ Stoneyville said...

I need to win this because I am too lazy to buy something to clean my lens by myself. To answer your question I shoot with a Canon 60d and My fav lens at the moment is my Tamron 28-75 f/2.8 but I really want the 85mm 1.8. Hopefully soon.

This would be so handy to win around my house! My husband is a photographer and he is trying very hard to teach me!!

Very useful piece of equipment. I like the fact that it is quite cheap and it is meant for many purposes. Nice to have because it is really very handy.
