In-Stock Now: Panasonic GH5S Body for $2500

Today is February 5 in 2018 and that’s a magic day for fans of the all new Panasonic GH5S body only, because today it is the official release of the camera, it is in-stock and ready to ship for its starting price of $2498 with free shipping at B&H Photo and Amazon itself and Adorama… You can optionally triple the original warranty by filing with Panasonic USA…

PS: if you are a Prime member and purchase it with either the Amazon Prime Chase VISA or Prime Store credit card you will receive a 5% statement credit on the purchase amount. That comes out to $125, no small change! Unlike the quarterly Amazon credit card rewards that have a limit of $1500 in 5% purchases per quarter, the Amazon credit cards do not have limits.

It’s Tokina time once again! The new condition Tokina 11-20mm f2.8 PRO DX lens is offered for $469 with free shipping and 4% promotional rewards (just under $19 in future purchases) at Adorama and B&H Photo in your choice of Canon or Nikon system.

Zhiyun Smooth-Q 3 Axis Handheld Gimbal for $80 w/free S&H

This is not a lightning deal. Rather, the deal is created thanks to a $20 off green clip-on coupon! You can get the Zhiyun Smooth-Q 3 Axis Handheld Gimbal for $80 with free shipping (fulfilled by Amazon) AFTER you clip the $20 off clip-on coupon. The coupon appears when the seller is Pergear fulfilled by Amazon.

PS: most of the Amazon green clip-on coupons are seller-centric, not product-centric, meaning that they are offered by a particular seller, not for the product as whole. Which makes sense, since Amazon can’t force every single seller of a listing to accept a coupon.

Pre-order Huawei Mate 10 PRO [w/two rear Leica lenses] + $150 Gift Card for $800 [2yr US warranty]

2018 looks like another year where the smartphone flagship wars will heat up even more. It’s Huawei’s turn now, their brand new Mate 10 PRO is available for pre-ordering for $800, the unlocked US variant but that’s not all! Two retailers are offering a $150 house gift card when you pre-order it for $800. So at B&H Photo you get a $150 B&H gift card, while at Amazon you get a $150 Amazon gift card.

This has 6GB RAM, 128GB on-board storage, 6″ 18:9 AMOLED screen, OctaCore with 12-core Mali G72, two year US warranty, 4000mah battery, 100% charge in 60 minutes, USB-C but no headphone jack, Android 8.0 and so on.

Of photography interest, the two rear lenses are “blessed” by LEICA. They are both 27mm f1.6, one is 20mp monochrome and the other is a 12mp RGB, both of the backlit CMOS kind. The front lens is a 8mp f2 but still supports RAW mode. RAW Selfies are the new big thing? 🙂
