Of Canon lighting interest, they have revealed a brand new Canon MT-26EX-RT Macro Twin Lite with a starting price of $989 and a mid-November 2017 release estimate. Pre-orders are accepted at B&H Photo and Amazon itself and Adorama.
Despite that estimate, there are a couple of listings at Amazon by Beach Camera that say this is in-stock and shipping in a few days. They have the same price and include some free accessories, one bundle with a 128GB Sandisk Extreme PRO SDXC, and another bundle with a Tripod, Kodak Flash and more. This also shows as in-stock at Beach Camera’s own website, but not at their Buydig online-centric website.
I have no way of verifying whether it is indeed in-stock there, so YMMV…
On the budget side of lighting, the new condition 6-pack AmazonBasics 100W Equivalent A21 LED Light Bulbs is on sale for $19.24 and shipping in 1-2 days. This is the Soft White (2700 Kelvin). Meanwhile the Daylight (5000 Kelvin) 6-pack goes for $20 but the shipping estimate is “2-5 weeks”. You can buy as many as you want.
PS: if you are close to free shipping, check the previous AmazonBasics posts for ideas.
The new condition Sony HVL-F60M External Flash is currently on sale for $448 with free shipping at authorized dealers (eg B&H Photo), but if you also like to get some free accessories, the following retailers bundle it with freebies for the same price of $448:
+ Beach Camera thru Amazon includes a 72-inch Vivitar tripod, a 64GB SDXC C10 memory card, a 4-slot AA charger with four 2950 mAh (non-LSD) batteries, a Sakar diffuser and a lens cleaning pen.
+ yes, I am aware you cannot put an SD card inside the flash or put the flash on a 72-inch tripod, but you can use these accessories with your other devices 🙂
+ Adorama includes a Glow S-Type Speedlite Bracket With Bowens Mount AND Flashpoint Reflector for Speedlights AND Flashpoint Mini Soft Box Diffuser for Shoe Mount Flashes AND Power2000 4-slot charger with four AA NiMH 2900mAh non-LSD Batteries
