Canon 6D Mark II body with freebies for $1199

We are already at the second generation of the Canon 6D, and the 6D Mark II body only (and the other official Canon kits of these camera) are getting some freebie along with a $1199 sale price at various authorized dealers…

PS: on the Amazon Store credit card, if you select a special no-interest financing promotion, you typically do not earn the 5% cashback (one of the two benefits but not both)…

Nikon D5600 Options abound (NC Two Lens Kit for $600, Refurb Body for $400, Etc)

The Nikon D3500 two lens kit goes for $400 as part of the Cyber FriMonday festivities, but if you want a more advanced DSLR as a jumping point into the Nikon system, the new condition (NC) Nikon D5600 two lens kit (18-55, 70-300) is currently going for $600 at various authorized dealers (eg B&H Photo and Amazon)…

However, if you do not want/need the kit lenses and prefer a lower priced entry, Adorama has D5600 refurbished options with the body only going for $397, with 18-55 for $430, and two lens kit for $500.

EU: Sigma 17-50mm f2.8 EX DC OS HSM for 266 euro [C/N]

Canon and Nikon deals at B&H Photo

B&H Photo is also running a dedicated page with all the Nikon Black Friday deals and of course in a Fairness Doctrine (TM) parallel, all the Canon BF deals.

Nikon offers include DSLRs, mirrorless (now that Nikon has gotten over their “Angry Inch” problem), and of course Lenses, along with related camera accessories and the occasional Coolpix P&S camera.

Likewise the Canon sale includes DSLRs, mirrorless (now that Canon has gotten over their me-too EF-M problem), and of course Lenses and assorted camera-related accessories, along with some Powershots with and without RAW.

You can filter them by price-range but also you can use the thin horizontal line that says “ALL DSLR Cameras Mirrorless Cameras” to filter by product type in case you are only interested in specific product categories (eg DSLRs or P&S etc etc).

More on these later on as, unlike a real computer, I cannot spawn multiple background process to digest it all and post it all at once 🙂

UPDATE 9am ET: the Waiting List is now OPEN, so you can join the wait. There’s still no guarantee you will get a shot at it, but if you are gonna be near the internet, you can give it a shot…

As of 8:11am eastern, this is “100% Claimed” and “Waiting List Full” but the offer runs until the end of the day, so if you want to try to play the waiting game, you may get a shot at it. People have 15 minutes to get it once it is in their shopping cart. If they don’t get it, it goes to the next person in the Waiting List. As the 15 minute blocks go by with un-purchased units, more spots open up in the Waiting List. But there’s no guarantee you will get it because they have a finite number of items available for each lightning deal…

With that out of the way, it’s the new condition Nikon D3400 with 18-55 DX VR going for $315. Prime members only as usual…

[DEAD?] Canon SL2 Body for $314, with 18-55 STM for $384 [ends 5:30pm ET] {Prime Deal}

UPDATE 9am eastern: it looks like this deal is over. It either sold out or ended. It didn’t have a ticking clock or percentage-claimed like most lightning deals do. It was one of those semi-daily type of deals that usually appear during the holidays and on special events like Prime Day. I will monitor the situation and post an update if it returns…

A Salt Lake Rebel? That’s what the Canon SL-series stands for? Anyway good until 5:30pm ET on Tuesday (or earlier if sold out) you can get the new condition Canon SL2 body only for $314 in the black color scheme, and in either the black or the white color scheme you can get the new condition Canon SL2 with 18-55 EF-S STM lens for $384…

These was an unannounced deal, as it is often the case when the Gold Box has name-brand and high-value type of products. Otherwise everyone will be sitting on their PC waiting and it will all be gone within 60 seconds 🙂

These too are part of the Prime Day deals. If you are not a Prime member and you must have it, you can always start a free 30-day Prime Trial and leave a note/alert in your calendar to cancel before the expiration. Although what Amazon is counting on is that you are gonna get hooked on the free 2-day delivery and the music and video streaming services and the ebook reading services and the million (seemingly) other Prime Benefits

NOTE that the SL2 is now the “previous generation” model. The Canon SL3 is the latest model which goes for $550 body only or $650 with the 18-55 lens. Almost twice the price.

Refurbished Nikon D810 body w/90-day warranty for $1750

The new condition Nikon D810 price is too close to the D850 BUT if you are willing to go manufacturer refurbished, then $1000 gets shaved off the price! For $1750 with free US shipping, Adorama is offering the manufacturer refurbished Nikon D810 body only with a 90-day Nikon USA warranty… Optionally you can get a $100 off combined purchase discount if you purchase it together (in the same shopping cart) with select Profoto lights [see “Buy Together & Save” over there]…

Meanwhile if you or your friendly camera technician need some D810 parts, there is a “Parts Only” listing with detailed description (“body is cracked open near …”) going for $309 at Adorama (USED). Note that this $309 does NOT function ~ it is for parts, repairs, experiments, and such…
