Zoom-zoom now! Panasonic has another superzoom camera in the FZ-series with RAW out of the box. It is the new FZ80 with a 18mp 1/2.3″ sensor and a 60x optical zoom lens (20-1200mm eq) and RAW with a pre-order price of $400 at B&H Photo and Adorama… This too has been added to our New Cameras of 2017 page…
CES 2017 is upon us and so is the parade of new cameras! Canon has a brand new RAWsumer, it is the second generation of the G9X, the aptly named “G9X II” and it is available for pre-order in black or brown color-options for $530 at B&H Photo and Amazon itself at the moment.
Staying with the reborn G-line, Canon also announced a G7X II Video Creator’s Kit available for pre-order for $750. What makes it so not as generous as some of the DSLR kits that include Rode mics, but rather you get a Manfrotto PIXI Mini tabletop tripod, an extra battery, and a 32GB SDHC card.

Internets Price-Match Nikon Coolpix B500 superzoom (40x, AA) Black Friday Ad for under $260 with free accessories
I am now continuing with the price-checking of the glossy-ad Black Friday Ads, and one more “glossy ad” has been “defeated” by the internets. The Nikon Coolpix B500 superzoom (40x optical, four AA) is advertised for $260 in the BF ads, but Adorama is not only offering it for just under $260, it is also bundled with lots of free accessories: Corel software bundle, Bag, SD, AA charger/batteries, etc. The same price but without those freebies is available at B&H Photo and Amazon itself

Amazon Teases Two Camera and Photo Black Friday items: Fuji Instax and N-Geo Rarely Seen Photography Book
It’s only a matter of time before we start getting movie trailers from Black Friday retailers, but at the moment, Amazon is happy to tease us with press releases. They list items that will be offered at any point in time between now and December 22 in 2016. I have no clue when the items mentioned will be offered. Of camera and photo interest, they tease two products:
+ Fujifilm Instax Mini 26 film camera with Film Bundle for $49.99
+ 52% off on the “National Geographic Rarely Seen: Photographs of the Extraordinary” by National Geographic and Stephen Alvarez (website)
+ the list price of the hardcover book is $40, so assuming it is 52% off that, the sale price will be $19.20. The current price of the book (as of the time of writing of this post) is $27.19
+ published October 2015, 400 pages, 9.6 x 1.2 x 11.3 inches
I will be keeping an eye out for these, but I have no clue when they will be offered…
Instant film cameras continue their mini resurgence (pun intended?), as a brand new option from Fuji, the Fujfilm Instax Mini 26 + Rainbow Film Bundle is now in-stock and ready to ship for $70 in four different camera-body color-schemes at Amazon by Amazon itself. As the name suggests, these are film cameras that need Instax Mini style film.
The official Canon USA store is offering a bundle of the refurbished Canon SX530 HS superzoom, along with the SELPHY CP1200 White Wireless Compact Photo Printer and the RP-54 High-Capacity Color Ink/Paper Set, all together for $250 with free shipping and a 1-year warranty. Only the camera is refurbished, not the printer or the ink/paper 🙂
The Serious Fixed Lens price-checking is not yielding surprise deals like the Mirrorless Price Check did last night (the best three sold out), but the black Panasonic LX100 is currently selling for $700 at Willoughby’s on Amazon [updated 11/4/16 AM; Amazon’s own price went up; Willoughby’s carries the discount], $800 at B&H and Adorama, but a further price check shows the new condition black LX100 going for $629 with free shipping at Overstock.com. Limit two per customer. You can get it for even less if you are willing to buy imported/grey-market models.

We just updated the Stock Status Tracker and we have some interesting news for fans of the Sony RX100 V, a discount!

UPDATE: the Cameta eBay store is bundling a handful of free accessories for the same price (64GB Transcend SDXC, extra 3rd-party charger and battery, trinkety accessories, 1-year Outdoor Photographer (prepaid subscription voucher), free 4×6″ York Prints, etc).
ORIGINAL POST: The estimates were correct for the Sony RX100 V, the camera is now in-stock and shipping at multiple retailers as you can see at the just-updated Stock Status Tracker. This includes many of the major retailers including Amazon and Adorama and B&H Photo.
