Imported Canon 6D body only w/1-YR seller warranty for $1000

The Canon 6D body only (first generation) goes for $1400 at authorized dealers (eg Adorama or Amazon itself). Or it goes for $1200 in manufacturer refurbished condition with a 1-year warranty at the Canon Outlet store

… but if you prefer to save some more, off to the eBay Deals we go where eBay seller 6ave (98.9%, New Jersey) is offering it for $1000 with free shipping in imported grey-market condition with a 1-year seller warranty. Limit up to three units per customer…

With the newest second generation model, the Canon 6D II body going for $2000 in new condition at authorized dealers, you’d be paying half for the previous generation.

Benro BV-series aluminum sale ($699 to $899)

Three models in the Benro BV-series of aluminum tripods are on sale for a limited time at B&H Photo with prices ranging from $699 to $899. Two are leg kits (BV8, BV10), while the more expensive includes a ball head.

For more sales, now that B&H is back after the Sukkot holiday, check their Featured Sales. Any previously placed orders should be getting processed and on their way to you by now.

Prime Student: new month to month option for $5.49/month

If you qualify for the “Prime Student” membership, you can sign up for a Prime Student Membership for $49 per year (half off the regular Prime membership). But if you prefer to pay month to month, or you only want to use Prime a few months per year (like a Netflix subscription you can start/stop at any month), at the above page, there is an option for month to month. Click on the “See More Plans” box over there:

In terms of value, the annual membership costs less than month to month, and at the moment, if you haven’t done a Prime Student membership before, they also have a free six month trial for annual memberships ~ co-sponsored by SPRINT apparently. There are many Prime Benefits but it’s up to you to decide whether they are worth the price of admission.

(ENDED) Wednesday: Mitakon Zhongyi 25mm f0.95 (M43) for $289, Etc
