It is a bit interesting that two of the hot non-smartphone photography segments at the moment are instant cameras and action cameras. Which just goes to show that the market works in mysterious ways. Which brings us to the Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Camera on sale for around $60 with free shipping in different color schemes at B&H Photo (click on the color tabs over there to switch colors in-page) and at Adorama where you can even find the Winnie the Pooh edition for $60 as well.
The Fuji X30 compact with RAW was going for $500 last week when we posted the RAWsumer price chart but you can now get it for $400 with free shipping and 4% promotional rewards in either color scheme at B&H Photo and Adorama and Amazon (no rewards but you get a semi-free Shutterfly 8×8 photo book [the book is free but you have to pay shipping]).
PS: our customary “Black Friday / Holiday Season Camera Deals Situation Room” at the Main Blog should go live in the next few hours. I am waiting for the early Friday wave to start, it would make that a good starting point.
This offer did not last long, it sold out long before its 24 hour window closed…
The Fuji Finepix S1 superzoom (50x optical) digital camera is on sale for $180 with free shipping, with a limit of three per customer at Amazon by Amazon herself as one of the many Gold Box Daily Deals. Offer ends by 3am ET on Friday or earlier if sold out.
The Fujifilm X100T Big Sensor PRime is bundled with the Audio-Technica AT8024 Stereo/Mono Microphone for $1100 at Adorama. The Microphone on its own goes for $250, so if you don’t need it, you can trade it or gift it or sell it to partially fund the X100T purchase. This bundle is available at Adorama for the black X100T or the silver X100T.
Meanwhile, while doing price-checks for the upcoming “Mirrorless Price Charts”, this came up…
B&H Photo is currently running a free accessory of your choice promotion on the Fuji X-T10 kits. You can select either the Fujifilm Metal Hand Grip for X-T10 or the Fujifilm Leather Case for X-T10 Digital Camera for FREE using the blue link below the “INCLUDES FREE” over there. Four of the six kits are in-stock and orderable. Annotated screenshot crop right below:
Meanwhile at Adorama all six kits are in-stock and come with a free Fujifilm X-T10 Case (no choice between that or the hand grip).
If you’d rather have more utilitarian accessories instead of either official hand-grip or case, Amazon itself offers an extra Wasabi charger with two extra batteries and a 32GB Transcend SD.
On the element-proof P&S digital camera front, the Fuji XP80 (three color scheme options) is bundled with a floater strap, camera case, 16GB SD and camera cleaning kit for $149 plus shipping (typically under $10; YMMV based on zipcode) at Adorama.
If you don’t need the bonus accessories, you can get it for $149 with free shipping and 2% promotional rewards (= ~$3) at B&H Photo.
The latest round of Fuji X-System savings is now nicely organized at Adorama. Participating are the X-T1 for $1000, X-T10 for $700, X100T for $1100, the X-Pro1 bundle we mentioned a couple of days ago, along with the X-A2 w/16-50 for $500 [correction: this is the X-A2, not the X-E2, thanks to one of our readers for the email alert; all apologies for the confusion!], and 16 lenses getting their fair share of instant savings discounts. This particular round of instant savings expires 12/26/15.
The Fuji X-T1 body only is now down to $1000 with free shipping with some bonus accessories as follows:
At B&H Photo you get 4% promotional rewards (about $40), a 16GB Sandisk Extreme SD, a Ruggard bag, a Watson extra battery, and a cleaning cloth.
At Amazon by Amazon itself you get a free 32GB Transcend, a Wasabi battery charger and two Wasabi chargers.
Instant film cameras continue their resurgence with even new models coming out! The brand new Fujifilm Instax Mini 70 Instant Film Camera is now on sale for $125 with free shipping, in the Yellow and White color scheme at Amazon by Amazon herself.

PS: it took me a while to figure it out, today is Singles Day because it is 11/11. 1s = singles. I now withdraw from consideration to become the next Sherlock Holmes
PS2: speaking of 1s, do not forget to observe 11:11pm on 11/11 tonight!
As of 11/11/15, the price jumped up up up and away…

We started following the falling knife price at $227.
Strategically, in situations like these, it’s hard to predict when to try to catch the falling knife, especially with Black Friday madness just around the virtual corner.

Price updated 11/6/15 at 11:51pm ET: the classic “falling knife” price continues… The black color scheme of the Fuji XQ1, in new condition, is currently down to $187 (was $196, was $203, was $208, was $213, was $227) with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself. The silver goes for $270+. Thanks to one of our readers for the alert!…
As of a 10/29/15 recheck this ended. Woot marks all expired offers as sold-out, but they may not be really so, so it may return in some future Woot incarnation…
If this camera needs to license a song, they should perhaps go for Coldplay’s “Yellow”… The yellow color scheme of the Fujifilm instax mini 8 Instant Film Camera is on sale for $60 with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo. The other colors go for more. Limit 20 per customer.

Being creative (in the eyes of the unwashed masses) is sometimes all about image (of course it shouldn’t be, but that’s how the world works). So if you are lactose intolerant and can’t have that upside down extra foam half-calf unsweetened almond milk with dry soy foam latte (a drink only a true creative would get), the next best choice is to go hipster. Which brings us to…
… to the eBay Deals party we return where we find Buydig’s eBay store offering the new condition Fujifilm Instax 8 Color Instax Mini 8 Instant Camera for $59 with free shipping, with a limit of five per customer, with five different color choices available.

Depending on color scheme (seven options) and the actual seller, the Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Instant Film Camera start at $64.50 (yellow) and go up to $70 at Amazon… Meanwhile the Mini 8N bundles range from $67 to $71… Prices fluctuate as they change at each seller and for each color… These are instant film cameras (I’m sure someone somewhere has a question at Yahoo Answers on where to put the SD memory card in these because they can’t find the slot or it doesn’t fit)…
