July 2020 “Name that Car” Contest

Today’s Post by Joe Farace

How I made this shot: I photographed this mystery car at a First Saturday’s Cars and Coffee event in Colorado Springs, Colorado. In keeping with last months Mirrorless Month theme, the camera used was an Olympus E-M5 Mark I with an Olympus M.14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II R lens at 42mm. Exposure was 1/320 sec at f/10 and ISO 320.

July’s contest is simple: Because Mary says that I tend to make these contests “too hard,” you need to just name the automobile manufacturer. The first person to “Name that Car” by responding via the Contact page (no other form of contact will be valid for the contest) will be the winner. Previous winners are not eligible and entries are limited to readers living in the conterminous (lower 48) United States.

The prize with be a LensPen DSLR Pro Kit. The LensPen DSLR Pro Kit The kit contains everything a photographer needs to keep your camera lenses, viewfinders and filters clean, including:

  • An Original LensPen for lenses. This is a full-size LensPen with a concave cleaning tip to match the slightly convex shape of a camera lens
  • A FilterKlear for lens filters. It’s another full-size LensPen with a completely flat cleaning tip to match any sized filter
  • A MicroPro for viewfinders. This is LensPen’s smallest pen to clean any viewfinder, including EVF, sensor or other small optics or surfaces.

The DSLR Kit also includes a handy microfiber carrying pouch which doubles as a cleaning cloth for virtually all other cleaning applications

LensPen will be donating one LensPen product to health care workers or first responders anywhere in the United States or Canada, while supplies last. They are also offering reduced pricing or donations for hospitals and first responder agencies. For more information, go to www.lenspen.com.

Yes, LensPen is one of this blog’s sponsor and I want to thank them for their support. But you should know that I’ve been using LensPen’s products for more than 20 years, long before I had any of my blogs.
