Canon Black Friday Offerings (107 options, EF, EF-S, RF, EF-M, G-series)

Canon of course could not not participate in the Black Friday offerings and their set has 107 options that feature full frame and APS-C cameras from both their DSLR and Mirrorless worlds, along with lenses from EF/EF-S, RF and their Jon Snows (EF-M). There’s some fixed lens cameras too (eg G-series, SX-series) and some accessories too (flashes, battery grips, etc)… Too many to list here individually and stay sane πŸ™‚

Canon 50mm f1.8 STM with Filter Kit for $99

Prime time under $100 for Canon EF users! The good old 50mm f1.8 STM lens is now down to $99 at authorized Canon dealers and Adorama is including freebies, a 49mm Pro-Optic digital essentials kit (three filters and a case), along with a cap tether and a cleaning kit…

Canon RF 24-240mm f4-6.3 IS USM for $699

If you want to jump on the new Canon RF mirrorless system [eg yesterday’s $1000 deal] and you also want a 10x optical zoom lens to go with it, the new condition RF 24-240mm f4-6.3 IS USM lens is on sale for $699 with free US shipping at Adorama (with extra freebies) and also at the official Canon store and at B&H Photo

Canon RP with RF 24-105mm f4-7.1 with Freebies for $999

If you are curious about Canon’s new full frame mirrorless system, and want a native “take pictures with” kit, Black Friday comes to the rescue as it crosses downwards the magical mystical “$1000 full frame” price threshold of $1000. I’m sure I could have said the above with a lot fewer words πŸ™‚

Anyway, during Black Friday festivities, the Canon RP camera bundled with the 24-105mm f4-7.1 RF lens is now down to $999 with free US shipping at B&H Photo

But wait, there’s more! If you also want free accessories, Adorama is bundling it with lots of freebies: 64GB Sandisk Extreme SDXC, Slinger camera bag [Slinger is the brand name, it’s not a sling bag, but a bag-bag], 67mm filter kit, Corel software [PC or Mac], and a few trinkets.

On the other hand, if you don’t want/need the 24-105mm kit lens, Adorama has a kit for that too. For $998 you get the Canon EF-R mount adapter [EF lenses to R bodies], 32GB Sandisk Extreme PRO SDXc, shoulder bag, Corel software, 2pk of rain covers, and a few trinkets.

BUT I ONLY WANT THE BODY ONLY!
The RP body only goes for $899 instead, $100 less than the “take pictures with” kit. At B&H Photo you also get a 128GB Sandisk Extreme PRO SDXC card, RJ DSLR shoulder bag, and a cleaning kit (includes a …lipstick brush)…

At Adorama the freebies include a 64GB Sandisk Extreme PRO SDXC, shoulder bag, Corel software, 2pk of rain covers, octopus tripod with ball head and a few trinkets.

The Venus Loaoaoaoawa RF option
I should also note that at Adorama [see links above], with any of the above RP kits, you have the option to buy it together with select Venus Loawa RF lenses for a combined purchase discount. As of the time of writing there are four Venus lenses and the combined purchase discounts are either $100 off for the more expensive lenses and $25 off for the least expensive of the four lenses.

Canon 24mm f2.8 STM EF-S with FREEbies for $119

If you are part of the Canon EF-S ecosystem [or using the appropriate adapters], Adorama is offering the new condition Canon 24mm f2.8 STM EF-S lens for $119 with free US shipping and some freebies too included by Adorama: 52mm filter kit (three filters and filter case), cleaning kit and lens cap tether…

The same price is also available at B&H Photo but without the extra freebies…

Prime Day #2: Canon M6 Mark II with 15-45 and EVF APS-C Mirrorless for $799 [updated]

UPDATE: this is the Canon M6 Mark II. In the chaos of the original post, I did not write “Mark II”, so some may have thought it was the Mark I… All apologies for the confusion… Silver lining, this is good practice for Black Friday 2020 πŸ™‚

Hooray! A real camera has appeared in the Wednesday Amazon USA Prime Day #2, it is available in black or silver-black, and for $799 you can get the new condition Canon M6 Mark II with 15-45 EF-M and EVF sold and shipped by Amazon herself.

PS: more things are getting added as I write these at the Amazon USA Prime Day #2, it’s a bit chaotic at the moment πŸ™‚

CURIOUS ABOUT THE CANON M6 MARK II?
Since this is a 24-hour deal and the camera comes in two color-options, you have plenty of time to research it. Here are some reviews to get you started:

+ the most readable and pleasant to read (compared to most of the other ad-attack websites) review at Camera Labs

+ Richard Butler sings writes the dpreview review, late November 2019, “our favorite Canon mirrorless yet”

+ Theano Nikitas at Tom’s Guide

+ short review at F/Stoppers

+ 3.5 out of 5 at PC Magazine

+ standard review format at Photography Blog

+ longish review at Digital Camera World but “ads attack” almost as bad as Tom’s Guide

+ review, not unboxing at Verizon’s Engadget

+ hands-on at Trusted Reviews

+ field test at Imaging Resource

+ detailed review at The Digital Picture

+ readability suffers but there is content at Camera Jabber

UPDATE: the offer is now live, for Thursday 8/6/20 until 11:59pm pacific time, it is the new condition international Canon 6D body only offered by 6ave through NewEgg for $758 with free US shipping…

According to the teasers for “tomorrow’s” deals of the day at the NewEgg website they are planning to have a sale on the international version of the Canon 6D body only as part of their Thursday August 6 in 2020 deals of the day. Here’s all the info they give on the teaser:

Friday: refurbished Canon SX720 HS compact-superzoom (40x) w/1yr warranty for $150

It’s not often we find a digital camera in the daily deals, but for Friday 7/17/20 we do so at the B&H daily deals [CORRECTED LINK]. It is red and refurbished and superzoom. It is the Canon SX720 HS going for $150. It comes with a 1-year parts and labor warranty per the listing [under “Specifications”]…

It has a 40x optical zoom and it is a DiGiC 6 era camera. As the “HS” in the model name suggests, this is a CMOS camera, while the “IS” for those too young to have lived through CCD sensor P&S Canon cameras, was used for CCD Powershots.

It is fascinating how camera size is relative. A compact superzoom like this, yet one of the reviewers complained it was “too heavy” and “bulky”. Mayhaps they didn’t try the focal range with DSLR lenses? πŸ™‚

New round of B&H daily deals and this being FriYAY, they last until Saturday at 11:59pm ET, but as usual B&H does not accept orders Friday PM through Saturday PM [check their website for exact times]:

Among the other daily deals there’s a $150 adjustable standing-desk converter, “phone soaps” with UV-C sanitizer [if the hand sanitizer gels don’t kill us, the UV radiation will finish the job!], and various power-related things… And an 800 lumen Insignia rechargeable flashlight for $29 [of potential light painting interest]…

Among the other daily deals, Woot has Amazon devices, a 21.5″ HP Elite Display, and MSI laptops and desktops among others… The Amazon mothership has Amazon devices on sale as well golf-related accessories… And at NEWEGG’s there’s a sexy 14″ ASUS Zenbook for $890, an i7-9700 Coffee Lake for $320, and the usual assortment of computer accessories…
