Last Call on Instant Savings Promotions from Canon, Fuji, Zeiss, Nikon, Sony, Olympus, Sigma, Tamron

B&H Photo is having a last call on the current instant savings promotions as we get into 2020 and CES mania. Too many cameras and lenses to list individually. You can browse through the aforelinked page or filter it over there, or use the manufacturer-specific links below:

+ Zeiss lenses: 68 options, Planar, Batis, Loxia, Milvus, Biogon, etc

+ Canon instant savings: DSLRs, mirrorless, lenses, accessories, (make-every-shot-a-)Powershots, etc

+ Fujifilm instant savings: X-series mirrorless cameras, X-series rawsumers (fixed lens cameras with RAW), lenses, medium format, etc
+ now that the X-system has been around for a while we are seeing more body-only promotions even for more entry-level cameras, for example the X-T100 body only goes for $349 with free accessories
+ or with 15-45mm and extras for $399
+ it’s hard not to fall in love photographically with those X-T cameras!

+ Sony Instant Savings with E-system APS-C and full frame cameras and lenses, camcorders, Cybershots, flashes and related accessories

+ Olympus Instant Savings with M43rds cameras and lenses, fixed lens cameras, and related accessories

+ Nikon Instant Savings with mirrorless Z-system, APS-C and full frame DSLRs and lenses, related accessories and the occasional Coolpix mixed in for good measure

+ Sigma Instant Savings with lenses for DSLR and mirrorless systems, accessories, etc with a total of 90 options offered

+ Tamron instant savings with 25 options including their two f2.8 PRO zooms and a mix of primes and zooms for all budgets
+ lenses only available for Canon, Nikon and Sony A DSLR systems

In-Stock Alert: DJI Mavic MiniFly More Combo w/free 64GB Lexar for $499

If you had been waiting for the DJI Mavic MiniFly More Combo, it is now in-stock and shipping at B&H Photo for $499 with free US shipping and for a limited time, B&H is automatically including a 64GB Lexar Professional 667x microSDXC card for FREE… The Standard combo goes for $399 without the free Lexar…

Tamrac Brushwick camera shoulder bags, Benro Monopods, Etc (ends Sat)

The day after a big holiday often feels like a Monday but if you look at the calendar and your smartwatch and your smartphone and your old tick-tock wall-clock, they all agree, it’s Friday and whether you are in love or not there is a new set of B&H daily deals, which, as usual on Fridays, lasts until Saturday at 11:59pm ET but the B&H website does not accept orders between Friday PM and Saturday PM [check website for details]:

+ Tamrac Camera shoulder bags, three options, $20 to $50

+ Benro Monopods, two options, $100 to $130

+ Impact PowerSync Mini Transmitter and Receiver Kit for $70

+ Kopul CBT-12 – 12-in-1 Cable Tester for $30

UPDATE: speaking of daily deals, one of the Woot dailies is the refurbishe Kindle Oasis e-reader (2017 model, 7″ Carta e-ink, waterproof) going for $100 in the 8GB model and $110 in the 32GB model. Well worth the extra $10 for the 32GB especially if you read books with lots of images, pictures, diagrams, etc. Or manga and graphic novels. This model supports Audible as well so you can load up your DRM’ed audiobooks on it as well… When sold on Woot, these come with a 90-day Woot warranty. The ones sold at Amazon as certified come with a 1-year warranty. Needless to say the price reflects the inclusion/exclusion of the longer warranty…

PS: I don’t have this model, I’m still at the refurbished Kindle Voyage… I would say e-readers were one of the most important technological developments of the last decade, especially if you like reading text-mostly books. They got me back into reading big time!
