If The Dave Matthews Band is licensing their songs to the Yogurt Industrial Complex, may I also suggest creating a special edition of “Crash into me” for waterproof action cameras called “Splash, into me!”. With that as a completely unnecessary introduction that took up at least 41 extra characters, we drive in to Amazon where they are offering the Nikon Coolpix AW130 for $250 with free shipping, in three color schemes, with a limit of five per customer. The same price is also available at B&H Photo (they will begin accepting orders again Saturday PM).
The $380 limited time offer on the Panasonic CM1 Android Camera-SmartPhone expired on Thursday at 11:59pm ET, but as of Friday at 12:02am ET, the price did not skyrocket, it is currently going for $500 with free shipping at B&H Photo… For many more new specials, check their latest Black Friday specials…
The Panasonic GM5 with the 12-32mm kit lens is currently going for $470 in red at Adorama and $470 in black at B&H Photo and Adorama where you can optionally add the Panasonic DMW-GTC1 Conversion Lens for +$20 using the yellow “Special Offer” section.
Speaking of M43rds, the $99 promotion on the Panasonic 25mm f1.7 (m43) lens is still good at Amazon by Amazon itself and Adorama and B&H Photo… It is not shipping immediately but you can lock up the price…
This is an older post…
The Panasonic G7 with 14-42mm was going for $800 last week [see price charts] but now it has become a discounting party. Not only has it dropped to $600, but Adorama is offering free gifts bundled with it for a limited time, while you still pay $600. The gifts are added automatically by Adorama while these promotions are running (they are mentioned on the product description pages).
The Panasonic G7 with 14-42mm was going for $800 last week (see Mirrorless Price charts) but now you can get it for $600 with free shipping and 4% promotional rewards (=$24~) at B&H Photo in the black or silver color scheme… Optionally you can triple the warranty via mail-in rebate… UPDATE: The black color scheme gets a free Rode microphone!
A lot of brick and mortar retailers split their weekly ads in two on ThanksGiving week. The conventional weekly ad typically covers Sunday through Wednesday night, and the other one is of course the Black Friday ad. Fry’s has posted their half-week (Sun AM to Wedn PM) weekly ad on their website and it includes these camera and photo items (these require unique promo codes that are included in each person’s email subscription to the Fry’s e-mail newsletters):
+ refurb Panasonic ZS35 with card and case for $99 is back again (limit 1)
+ Manfrotto Compact Xtreme 2-in-1 Monopod+Pole for $30 (limit 1)
+ Manfrotto Compact Action Tripod (MKCOMPACTACN-BK) for $40 (limit 1)
+ refurbished 10-inch Sylvania SDPF1089 digital picture frame for $37 (limit 1)
+ 16GB Samsung cyan microSD with fullsize adapter for $6 (limit 2; in-store only)
+ mystery 20mp Canon Elph for $140 (in-store only; you have to call them or visit store for details; most likely because of MAP restrictions)
The Panasonic FZ1000 superzoom with RAW and its 1-inch sensor is bundled with a $100 Adorama Gift Certificate for $750 with free shipping at Adorama… Optionally you can triple your manufacturer warranty via mail-in rebate…
The Panasonic FZ200 superzoom with RAW is bundled with a $100 Adorama gift certificate and a 16GB SD card for $400 with free shipping at Adorama.
If you had previously purchased the Panasonic GH4 body only, and you now want to add the sexily-named YAGH Interface Unit, good news, its price is now down to $500 in new condition at B&H Photo (with 4% rewards) and Adorama and Amazon by Amazon itself… Optionally you can triple the original warranty via mail-in rebate…
This price is now the same as the difference between the GH4 body only ($1300) and the GH4 with Interface Unit ($1800). But there is a non-price difference: some of the GH4 kits get a number free accessories from some of the retailers, for example various bundles of the GH4 body at Adorama include a [camera cage] OR [$50 Gift Card + 32GB SD] OR [extra battery + SD + Sandisk]. At Amazon the bundle includes 32GB SD, Camera Case, 3rd-party charger and two 3rd-party batteries.

I never got around to posting an in-stock alert for the new Panasonic FZ300 superzoom (a RAWzoomer since it takes RAW), so here it is! The camera is in-stock and ready to ship at its starting price of $600 at Amazon (Amazon itself, and 3rd-party sellers) and Adorama and B&H Photo. You can optionally triple the warranty via mail-in rebate.
PS: why not just offer a three year warranty to all buyers or at least make the rebate an online submission? Staples has been using online (Easy Rebates) for many years now, and they work very well.
