When LaCie got in touch with us to give away one of their 4TB Rugged RAID USB 3.0 Thunderbolts ($400 value), let’s just say we weren’t noncommittal. One of the perks to having a readership of talented photographers is that we can call on you to do what you do best: get creative. That’s why we’re asking only one thing of you to win this 4TB beast: Upload an awesome shot with you and one of our latest Rf issues to Instagram, including the hashtag #RFgiveaway and tagging us (@rfwppi).
LaCie’s Rugged RAID is mobile storage tough enough to secure your files against a variety of disasters. You can drop it from 5 feet, even run it over with a one ton car, and still retrieve your files (provided you weren’t holding the drive while the car ran it over). The protection continues inside the drive with an option to select RAID 1 and divide the drive’s capacity in half, duplicating files for greater redundancy. If you have the need for speed, select RAID 0 and files will transfer off the drive at 240MB/s via Thunderbolt connection. The Thunderbolt cable is integrated into the drive and delivers power to the unit when connected to a PC or laptop. If you opt to connect the drive via USB 3.0, you’ll need to use the included external power supply.
So here’s what we’re dealing with: rather than narrowing the giveaway parameters, we’re keeping them fairly loose so you can just do your thing. Since the June Destination Weddings Issue just came out, we’re betting you haven’t gotten your hands on it quite yet, so you can use any Rf issue from 2015 (that’s January or later).
You have until 11:59 p.m. EST this Friday, June 5, to upload your creative photo to Instagram using the hashtag #RFgiveaway and tagging @rfwppi. Once all the entries are in, we’ll regram our favorite on Monday, June 8, send the winner the LaCie hard drive, and include your photo in an upcoming RF Conversations page in print. How does that sound?
Now, get to gramming!
