Imported Fuji X-T1 body only for $679

In mid-June, the new condition from authorized Fuji USA dealers Fuji X-T1 body-only went for $1000, but as of right now, it goes for $1300 (eg Amazon, B&H Photo). With the upcoming X-T2 body only having a starting price of $1600, perhaps Fuji is trying to herd/encourage new X-T buyers towards the X-T2. But if one is interested in the X-T1 specifically, perhaps the used or imported market may be of interest…

Imported Fuji X-T1 body only for $700 (or w/18-55 for $1150)

The Fuji X-T1 body only goes for $1300 at authorized dealers, while the kit with the 18-55mm goes for $1700. Authorized dealers are allowed to bundle it with free accessories and promotional rewards, eg Adorama.

But if you are more of a risk taker and comfortable with imported grey-market items, among the latest eBay Deals, eBay seller “Electronics Valley” (99.6%) is offering the new condition imported grey-market with a 1-year seller warranty (not Fuji USA) Fuji X-T1 body only for $700 with free shipping. On that listing, you can also select the X-T1 with 18-55mm for $1150. Change the “MPN” option in the menu to switch between the two. It shows product numbers instead of human-readable model names, but there are only two options, 16421452 (Body Only),16432786 (Body+18-135mm Lens).

Kudos to this eBay seller for clearly filling in the warranty details in the eBay “Item Specifics” where it specifies that it does not come with a manufacturer warranty and that it is an import item with a 1-year seller warranty. Also kudos for having a big banner further down the product description saying this is an “IMPORT MODEL”. Annotated screenshot crop below:

imported_model

This is a step in the right direction for retailers: giving the consumer all the information needed to make an informed decision.

Fuji X70 with Official Leather Case or Boatload of Freebies for $700

The brand new Fuji X70 sells at its starting price of $700 but you have a choice of freebies. At B&H Photo you get a free Fujifilm BLC-X70 Leather Case (Black) automatically included by B&H. This is mentioned right above the Product Highlights (see annotated screenshot crop below):

fuji_x70_free_case

If you don’t need the official case, or you prefer a boatload of free accessories, Adorama is bundling it with Corel software bundle (includes AfterShot PRO 2 and Paintshop PRO X8) along with a ProOptics 49mm Essentials Filter kit, a Lowepro pouch, a 16GB Toshiba SD card, and the obligatory cleaning kit.

Fujifilm Instax Mini 70 Instant Film Camera for $99

The Fujifilm Instax Mini 70 Instant Film Camera in the yellow color option is on sale for $99 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself. Limit five per customer. If yellow is not your color, the sale also includes the blue and white camera bodies that go for $100 each with a limit of five as well. A 3rd-party seller has them for the same price, so you can get more from them if you need more.

TIP: this looks like it may be an automated Amazon price-match of the 3rd-party seller price, so it’s completely unpredictable how long this will last.

200pcs Fuji Instax Mini Instant Film + 100 photo frame stickers for $138

If you need plenty of Fuji Instax Mini Instant Film there is a bundle that contains 10 Twin Packs (20 instant films per Twin Pack) along with 100 photo frame stickers (see gallery picture #4 over there) and a microfiber cleaning cloth for $138 with free shipping with the order fulfilled by Amazon so you get free Prime shipping.

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).
