Not only we forgot about Dre, we also forgot about the eBay Deals where we have an imported grey-market new condition camera. If of all the 1-inch compacts with RAW it is the first generation Sony RX100 the one you want, you can get it for $320 with free shipping, with a limit of five per customer from eBay seller Electronics Valley (99.1%).
Adorama is bundling a free Audio Technica mic with the purchase of one of these 17 cameras. Fourteen of them are Canon DSLRs and Sony full frame mirrorless cameras, along with two Fuji X100T kits and the Panasonic GH4 body only. Some of the cameras come with additional free accessories, while others are eligible for promotional rewards.
No coupon and no rebate needed. While this promotion is running (you will see it mentioned on the individual camera product pages), Adorama will include the free Audio Technica mic (and other eligible freebies) automatically.
I don’t know if they are trying to mirror Apple’s way of new product releases, but Sony continues with the two phase product announcement and pre-orders. Announced on Friday was the new Sony a7S II mirrorless full framer. Pre-orders for the camera will begin to be accepted on September 17 in 2015 at various authorized Sony dealers including Adorama and B&H Photo. At least Sony didn’t go the OnePlus route of waiting lists and such
This too has been added to the New Cameras of 2015 tracking page.
Of video interest, you can place pre-orders right now, with a mid-November 2015 release estimate, for the new Sony PXW-FS5 Super35 video camera which goes for $5600 as body only and $6100 bundled with the 28-135mm lens.
Sony has another round of instant savings promotions, combined with free accessories included by Adorama, and up to 4% promotional rewards, plus free NewLeaf spills/drops warranties for some models. You can find all the eligible cameras nicely organized at the Adorama website.
Check each individual camera’s product page to see what are the available offers. There are two places to check. Let’s use the Sony a6000 body only as our example. It currently goes for $450 and right above the price, you can see that it also comes bundled with a free 64GB Lexar Professional SDXC memory card.
But the offers don’t end there. Look for the hard to find “Ways to Save” section and open that, which will reveal the “Save up to $300.00 with bundle” option. Click on that, and it will take you to the a6000 bundles page. Check the left side there for the various promotions. In this case, you can optionally add the 55-210 for +$150, or add a 1yr New Leaf Spills/Drops warranty for FREE or get various hardware or software at a combined purchase discount.
Annotated screenshots of what to look for below, using the a6000 body only kit as our guinea pig (after the jump):
Sony launched another instant savings promotion for some of their E-mount (mirrornyets) and some of their A-mount (mirrorSi) Lenses. You can find the eligible lenses broken down by mount (below the four featured lenses) at B&H Photo. Press the orange “Load More” button to see more, rinse and repeat for even more…

This is not a dejavu, this is the third Sony E-mount lens that is offered in grey-market imported condition by Get It Digital (99.7%) as part of the eBay Deals. It is the new condition grey-market with a three year warranty provided by GetItDigital (not Sony) Sony FE 70-200mm f4 G OSS (model SEL70200G) offered for $1180 with free shipping with a limit of five per customer.
The grey market (imported cameras without manufacturer’s USA warranty) party continues at the eBay Deals, this time it is Get It Digital (99.7%) offering the new condition imported grey-market Sony Zeiss 55m f1.8 FE Sonnar T* lens for the E-mount offered for $740 with free shipping with a limit of five per customer. It comes with a three year warranty from Get It Digital, not Sony USA. Over 500 units sold so far from this eBay listing.
The warranty is described in the eBay listing as:
PS: if you are having a bit of a deja vu, it’s because last week we also mentioned a different grey-market imported Sony-Zeiss lens, the Sony T* E 16-70 F4 ZA OSS lens (aka SEL1670Z) which went (and still goes) for $700, also from Get It Digital.
This daily deal confusion ended, thank The Seven!…
The Sony HDR-AS200VW action camera currently goes for $250 at authorized Sony dealers, but if you also want/need or could use/trade/sell a boatload of accessories, for the same price of $250 with free shipping, you can get it with these bonus accessories: 32GB Sony microSD, generic camera bag, 3rd-party battery charger, 3rd party battery, Zeiko card reader, HDMi cable, cleaning kit and screen protectors by Beach Camera thru Amazon. It ships from Beach (NJ) so it is not eligible for free 2-day Prime shippings.

The Sony a6000 with 16-50mm goes for $700 in new condition at authorized dealers, but if you are comfortable with not-new, there are a couple of options floating on the internets right now:
The KEH option is sold out as of a 8/23/15 recheck…
One of the further-down-the-page eBay Deals is the new condition imported grey-market Sony T* E 16-70 F4 ZA OSS lens (aka SEL1670Z) offered for $700 with free shipping and a three year warranty from the seller GetItDigital (99.7%) with a limit of five per customer. This does not come with a Sony USA warranty. Offer ends by 8/24/15.
More B&H action, this is a round-up of the current Lens Instant Savings promotions running:
+ Canon SLR Lenses and flashes (21 lenses, 2 flashes)
+ Nikon SLR Lenses (8 lenses)
+ Sony SLR and Mirrorless Lenses (many options)
+ Pentax SLR Lenses (36 options)

If you are comfortable with open-box lenses, Best Buy currently has the open box Sony 28mm f2 FE lens for $364 with free shipping. Their description is as follows: “Returned, used as display model in store, or opened due to packaging damage but remains in like-new condition.” You can locate open-box options on the top line, between the product name and price box (annotated screesnot crop below):
The new condition price at authorized dealers is $450. Some retailers offer extra free accessories with it at $450, making the decision more difficult. For example, Adorama includes a 3-filter kit, lens pouch, lens wrap, cleaning kit, and Corel software (including Aftershot Pro 2 and Paintshop Pro X7).
Back to the eBay Deals where GetItDigital (99.7%) is offering the new condition imported (grey market) Sony a7S body only for $1800 with free shipping, with the usual limit of five per customer. The main picture has the a7 box, while the rest of the listing talks about the a7s. That and the unusual look of the box in the listings perhaps causing people to not buy it. It comes with a one year warranty from the seller GetItDigital, not from Sony USA.
With the bigger memory card prices coming down, the smaller denominations are getting squeezed, which means more deals if you prefer 16GB or 32GB cards. Case in point, the 32GB Sony Class 10 UHS-1 (up to 40MB/sec) is currently on sale for $10 with free shipping, with a limit of ten of them per customer at B&H Photo as one of their Featured Deals.
The tall ships from Japan brought in some new gear now in-stock at B&H Photo as follows:
And some discounts there:
+ Canon EOS C100 Cinema EOS Camera (Body Only) for $3000
+ Tascam DR-100mkII Portable 2-Channel Linear PCM Recorder for $200
This sold out shortly after posting it…
If you just happen to need one 32GB Sony SDHC Class 10 UHS-1 memory card, model SF32UY/TQMN, it is currently on sale for $10 with free shipping at B&H Photo. But you don’t have have to get just one. The limit is ten per shopping cart. This is the 32GB card, not the 16GB card! This is a limited time offer.

The new Sony cameras announced last week (see New Cameras of 2015 tracking page) are now available for actual ordering. Maybe Sony thought an extra week would help build hype? Regardless, they are now ready for ordering:
