Fuji X10 Compact with RAW (black) for $300

If of the many compacts with RAW it is the black Fuji X10 the one you want, you can get it for $300 with free shipping by SSE Photo & Video thru Amazon. This ships directly from the seller (SSE Photo & Video) but if you are a Prime member, you will get Prime shipping benefits (this was a recently added benefit to Amazon Prime, select sellers offer free 2-day shipping on products purchased by Prime members ~ not sure how the cost is split between the seller and Amazon but that’s their behind the scenes thing, not the consumer’s)… Thanks to S.A. Anderson for the email alert on this…

PS: for the speed readers out there, this is the older Fuji X10 fixed lens camera, not to be confused with the newer Fuji X-T10 interchangeable lens camera.

Refurb Fuji XP80 for $90, refurb Instax Mini 8 for $50, new Canon SX530 HS for $190

Among the longer non-daily deals at Woot, there is a mini camera sale good until 4/28/16 at 12am central featuring three models:

+ new condition Canon SX530 HS superzoom for $190
+ refurbished yellow Fuji XP80 waterproof for $90
+ refurbished white Fuji Instax Mini 8 instant camera for $50

The limit is three of each camera per customer. Shipping is $5 flat for everything you buy from Woot in April 2016, so if you already bought something, you won’t pay shipping again in April 2016. This may be an experiment to try a monthly/annual membership or a competitive counter to the $5 per month Meh.com MVP plan (they funnily call is VMP rather ironically!).

Imported Fuji X-T10 body only with 1-Year seller warranty for $500

The Fuji X-T10 body only goes for $800 or for $900 with the 16-50 at authorized Fuji USA dealers (eg Adorama).

But if you are more of a risk taker, among the latest eBay Deals, seller “Electronics Valley” (99.5%, New Jersey) is offering the new condition imported grey-market Fuji X-T10 body only for $500 with free shipping, in black or silver, with a 1-year warranty from the seller (not from Fuji USA).

I don’t mean to sound like a broken record, but when buying imported items, don’t just buy them because it’s a much lower price. Make sure you are comfortable with the risks and trade-offs of such purchases. Ultimately you are the one who is going to have to sleep and live with the decision and as such, you are the ultimate decider of what’s an acceptable risk to take. (all apologies if this may sound a little Nanny-State-ish but some people may not be familiar with the whole imported vs authorized kerfuffle. In situations like this it is mayhaps better to err on the side of caution).

Fuji X-E2 Body with Fuji HG-XE1 Hand Grip for $499 [with 18-55 for $699]

The free Hand Grip will be included automatically by Adorama while this “while supplies last” promotion continues.

Imported grey-market Fuji X100T with 1-year seller warranty for $800

The Fuji X100T BSP (Big Sensor Prime) goes for $1300 at authorized dealers who are allowed to offer some bonus items with it (eg free Rode Mic at Adorama or 4% rewards and 32GB SDHC at B&H Photo).

But if you are more of a risk taker and imported grey-market items do not give you nightmares on Warranty Street, then among the latest eBay Deals we find a new condition imported grey-market Fuji X100T with a 1-year seller warranty (not Fuji USA warranty) going for $800 with free shipping in either black or silver. The seller is Electronics Valley (99.5%) and it ships from New Jersey.

As usual with these type of situations, it is up to you to decide what’s right for you and how much risk and adventure you are willing to invite. We blog, you decide!

Speaking of eBay, they have a semi-curated refurbished camera gear sale with 60+ items included.

Pre-order Fuji X-E2S body for $700 (or w/18-55 for $1000)

The camera upgrade cycle continues with Fuji revealing an “S” version of the Fuji X-E2, the new X-E2S. I am not sure why companies keep insisting on using a final “s” in model name because that’s confusing both in terms of plural and possessive. But camera manufacturers are not under the juristiction of the Grammar Police, so they can get away with it 🙂 The X-E2S is available for pre-order in two options (body only for $700 or with the 18-55mm f2.8-4 R LM OIS for $1000), in either black or silver-black color schemes. Accepting pre-orders for these four combinations right now are Adorama and B&H Photo and Amazon by Amazon itself… This too has been added to the e Interesting Cameras and Lenses of 2016 Tracking page
