Win 1 of 20 ePHOTOzine Camera Straps or 1 of 20 e2 Memberships!

While you're busy buying and wrapping presents for other people, why not treat yourself to a small gift and upgrade your ePHOTOzine account to e2?

For just £29 a year, e2 membership offers ePHOTOzine members exclusive features such as bigger photo uploads, email alert manager, image modifications, visitor stats and exclusive prize draws. You can trial it NOW for just £3.50 a month!

Looking for a new way to carry your camera? Check out ePHOTOzine's branded camera strap!

You can currently save 60% on the price of our deluxe 42mm wide strap that has an embroidered ePHOTOzine logo at each end.

The elasticated nature of the strap ensures it's much more comfortable than the strap that came with your camera as it creates an apparent reduction in the weight, as well as having a rubberised backing to ensure it stays gripped to your shoulder.

The strap ends are 10mm wide and attach through the elongated lugs on your SLR camera body or, if you have an older film camera, via D-rings (not supplied). The length can be adjusted to control camera height when the strap is worn over your shoulder or around your neck.

This strap will also make a perfect stocking filler for the camera user in your life.

You can buy yours NOW in the ePHOTOzine shop!

This year we have 40 ePHOTOzine goodies to give away to all our worldwide members! There are 20 ePHOTOzine e2 Memberships and 20 ePHOTOzine Camera Straps up for grabs; simply click all the presents below to find the one that enters you into the prize draw and good luck everyone!

Finally, we'd just like to take this opportunity to SHOUT a huge thank you to all our clients and members for your continued support, ensuring ePHOTOzine stays the only place to be!

Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year - stay safe, be very merry and see you in 2012!

Best Wishes,

The ePHOTOzine Team
