First Fuji X-H1 deal arrives: FREE Domke F-803 Camera Bag

We have the first Fuji X-H1 deal already, shortly after I posted the Fuji X-H1 pre-order round-up. The first deal is this: if you pre-order it at Adorama, either as the body only for $1900 or with the battery grip for $2200, you will automatically receive a FREE Domke Fuji cobranded F-803 camera bag. You will get this for free as long as this is mentioned in the individual product page over there! Here’s a screenshot to make sure I did not hallucinate 🙂

If the promotion rings a bell, that’s because this promotion is already in progress for other Fujis (X-T2, X-PRO2, select lenses).

The Trending Five: Fuji X-E2, Panasonic GX85 2LK, ZS100 superzoom, Datacolor, Etc

Tonight’s pre-order-a-palooza pushed down a lot of other deals, so the time is right for the return of the “The Trending Five”, a round-up of five of the best surviving deals (subjective of course)…

+ Panasonic GX85 with 12-32 and 45-100 and $100 Gift Certificate and $24 Rewards for $598 with free shipping at Adorama in silver color scheme or the black color scheme

+ Panasonic ZS100 superzoom with $100 Gift Certificate and $22 Rewards for $548 at Adorama in or scheme or silver color scheme

+ Various RAWsumer (fixed lens serious compact) Camera Guides by Alexander S. White on sale for $8 in the Kindle version

+ Datacolor SCK200 SpyderCHECKR 24 for $30 by Amazon itself

+ Fuji X-E2S with 18-55 f2.8-4 OIS for $680 at
++ Adorama in black color scheme or silver color scheme
++ Amazon in black color scheme or silver color scheme

The free to read promotion at Consumer Reports is over. They have relaunched their paywall with three for-pay membership options (Print, Digital, or Both), along with a basic free membership.

Pre-order new Fuji X-H1 Camera and Battery Grip and Lens Bundles

We begin the Pre-Order-a-palooza that was promised with some of the new cameras and lenses that were officially announced this week, starting with the new flagship of the Fuji X-system, the new X-H1, with an in-body image-stabilization to boot! This is the fifth new mirrorless camera revealed in 2018 [see New Cameras of 2018 tracker], giving Mirrorless cameras a commanding 5-0 lead over Team DSLR.

The Fuji X-H1 body only is available for pre-ordering for $1900 at Adorama and B&H Photo and Amazon by Amazon itself with a March 1st release estimate. Do note however that estimates are only estimates and they change over time!

A flagship camera is not a flagship without a dedicated battery grip, and the X-H1 is getting the Fujifilm VPB-XH1 Vertical Power Booster Grip for $329, available for pre-ordering by Amazon itself and Adorama and B&H Photo.

There is also a pre-order option for the X-H1 bundled with the battery grip with a $30 combo discount, $2199 instead of $2229 🙂

FUJI X-H1 bundled with PRO LENSES
What if you also want a pro lens to go with the new X-H1? Fuji has created bundles with three of their existing X system pro lenses [not the new T2.9 cinema lenses] as follows:

+ X-H1 with 16-55mm for $2949
+ X-H1 with 50-140mm for $3349
+ X-H1 with 100-400mm for $3649
+ the above kits are also available with the official battery grip for +$300

You can find all these options at the organized product announcement pages at B&H Photo and Adorama and the search results at Amazon.

Pre-order new Fuji T2.9 Zoom Cinema Lenses for X System

If you are a fan of cinematography and the Fuji X system, Fuji has two new propositions for you, their first two Cinema lenses for the X-system. These are T2.9 zoom lenses, and they are available for pre-order as follows:

+ MKX 18-55mm T2.9 for $4000 at Adorama and Amazon itself and $4100 at B&H Photo

+ MKX 50-135mm T2.9 for $4300 at B&H Photo and Adorama and Amazon itself

These two new T lenses too have been added to the New Lenses of 2018 tracking page.

Pre-order new Panasonic GX9 iLC and ZS200 RAWzoomer

“Gooooooooooooool!” says the soccer TV announcer as another mirrorless camera gets revealed in 2018. The Panasonic GX9 is the fourth new mirrorless camera of 2018 [see New Cameras of 2018 tracker], while the ZS200 is the first RAWsumer of the year (fixed lens camera with native RAW out of the box). Both of these new Panasonics are now available for pre-ordering as follows:

+ Panasonic GX9 with 12-60mm for $998 at B&H Photo and Adorama and Amazon itself
+ late March release estimate

+ Panasonic ZS200 (1″ sensor, 15X Leica optical zoom) for $798 at Adorama and B&H Photo and Amazon itself

Pre-order new Zeiss Loxia 25mm f2.4 lens (Sony E)

The new lens is the ZEISS Loxia 25mm f2.4 with a late March 2018 release estimate and a starting price of $1299 and available for pre-ordering for B&H Photo and Adorama

But that’s not all! This new lens has now been added to the Zeiss Loxia Lens Bundle which now includes five Zeiss primes with a transport case for $5987 with free shipping. This too is a pre-order! Adorama is offering an optional 12-month $499/month financing promotion on this, on approved credit and all that good stuff.

This new lens too has been added to the New Lenses of 2018.

This new lens has been added to the New Lenses of 2018. Also added is a new Sigma 14-24mm f2.8 ART DG HSM, but the lens does not have a price yet, so there are obviously no pre-orders without a price.

16pk AmazonBasics 100W-equivalent A21 LED Light Bulbs for $46 (Daylight or Soft White)

The 100W equivalent LED light bulbs of the A21 kind are not easy to find or as cheap or subsidized like the 40W and 60W equivalent.

This puts each light bulb under $3.

If you don’t need that many or need them right away, the 6-packs are in-stock and ready to ship for $22~ in either Daylight or Soft White, making them $3.67 per light bulb.

Mildly surprising they are making a new Samsung NX lens. Mayhaps it was too late in the development process to cancel it?

Preorder new Fuji X-H1 flagship camera

Fans of in-body camera image stabilization are now cheering another convert to the cause as the brand new Fuji X-H1 flagship camera has an in-body image stabilization that promises up to 5.5 stops if the stars and the lenses align (multiple puns intended).

Despite the H in the name, this remains an APS-C camera, not an APS-H camera.

The new Fuji X-H1 has a starting price of $1899 and it is available for pre-ordering at Adorama and B&H Photo and Amazon by Amazon itself.

Fuji is also offering combined purchase discounts if one orders the camera with one of three Fuji pro lenses (their two f2.8 zooms or the 100-400). Details on the individual product pages above.

But that’s not all! Coming along with it are two Fuji Cinema T zoom manual lenses. Fuji is after all no stranger to cinema lenses. You can see all the new items available for pre-ordering at the new announcement pages at Adorama and B&H Photo. Amazon doesn’t have advanced technology like that, but you can see most of them in their search results

My Homework for Later Today
+ add the Fuji X-H1 to the Stock Status Tracker (the X100F will be retired from it at the same time)

+ update the New Cameras/Lenses tracker with all the new products of this week and post pre-order alerts for them

+ buy after-Valentines clearance chocolates 😉

AmazonBasics Carbon Fiber Monopod for $53 w/free S&H

With their AmazonBasics line, Amazon can discount them and adjust their prices as they see fit, they don’t have to play the whole MAP song and dance. Perhaps this is one of the many reasons more online retailers are having more products under their own house brands.

Which brings us to the new condition AmazonBasics Carbon Fiber Monopod on sale for the very specific price of $53.26 with free shipping with up to five per customer. Could also be useful if you want to cosplay Gandalf 🙂 This is not a lightning deal, so expiration time unknown.

Panasonic ZS100 superzoom with $100 Gift Certificate and $22 Rewards for $548

In a parallel promotion to the GX9/GX85, the introduction of the brand new Panasonic TZ200/ZS200 (15X, $800, 1″ sensor) has also brought special offers on the TZ/FZ previous generations…

The Panasonic ZS100 currently goes for $548 with free shipping AND Adorama is including with it a $100 Adorama gift certificate and $22~ promotional rewards in your choice of black color scheme or silver color scheme

Previously, in mid December 2017, Adorama offered this with a $50 gift certificate instead of a $100, but it included some free accessories.

As usual, you can optionally triple the original warranty by filing with Panasonica…

Panasonic GX85 with 12-32 and 45-100 and $100 Gift Certificate and $24 Rewards for $598 with free shipping

Panasonic just revealed the new GX9 with 12-60 for $1000, and it is often the case, it means discounting on the previous models.

The Panasonic GX85 with the 12-32mm kit lens is now bundled with the 45-150 f4-5.6 lens AND a $100 Adorama gift certificate and $24~ promotional rewards, all these for $598 with expedited shipping at Adorama in your choice of silver color scheme or the black color scheme.

The previous time Adorama had a similar promotion in last December 2017 it was with a $50 gift card instead of a $100 gift card!

The price is certainly right for a “take pictures with” entry-point into Micro Four Thirds. You pay $600, you get a camera, two lenses, and $124 “buying power” for future purchases at Adorama.

YMMV 8% eBay Bucks (no minimum purchase)

Attention eBay shoppers! We have a Union of the Two Towers! Already mentioned in progress until 2/20/18 AM is a 20% off eBay coupon promotion on 160+ sellers.

Now coming out via email and eBay messages, is a new 8% eBay Bucks promotion, running until 2/16/18 at 3am eastern. You must manually activate it before you earn the 8% eBay Bucks. This has no minimum purchase amount. I do not know if every eBay Bucks member gets these offers or the eBay computers do their “targeting thing” (eg nudge people who haven’t shopped in a while to shop, and so forth).

So if you buy an item that is eligible for the coupon and if you activate the 8% eBay Bucks, and make the purchases while both offers are running, we have the Union of the Two Towers!

A good place to look for ideas are the eBay Deals along with the Trending Deals (shows only 100 trending deals, less overwhelming to look at than their main deals page). There’s also a dedicated search box there that searches only the Deals, not everything else on eBay.

Another way to look for ideas is our eBay Category posts here…

(ENDED) Aukey 2-in-1 67″ Tripod/Monopod with 360 Ball Head and QR Plates for $37 w/free S&H after coupon

UPDATE 2/14/18 AM: the 50% off coupon expired, but now they have a 30% off coupon code AKTRIPOD that brings the price of the AUKEY 2-in-1 67″ Tripod/Monopod with 360 degree panorama ball head and two 1/4″ quick release plates down from $75~ to $52~. Obviously not as good as yesterday’s coupon that brought it down to $37~, thus I’m marking the deal as ended… Original post after the break for reference only…
