Imported Canon 6D body only w/1-YR seller warranty for $1000

The Canon 6D body only (first generation) goes for $1400 at authorized dealers (eg Adorama or Amazon itself). Or it goes for $1200 in manufacturer refurbished condition with a 1-year warranty at the Canon Outlet store

… but if you prefer to save some more, off to the eBay Deals we go where eBay seller 6ave (98.9%, New Jersey) is offering it for $1000 with free shipping in imported grey-market condition with a 1-year seller warranty. Limit up to three units per customer…

With the newest second generation model, the Canon 6D II body going for $2000 in new condition at authorized dealers, you’d be paying half for the previous generation.

Pre-order new Canon G1 X III APS-C RAWsumer for $1300

The sensors are increasing in RAWsumers, and so are the prices! Canon finally decided to go APS-C with their storied G-series. The brand new Canon G1 X III (aka third generation) has an APS-C sensor, and a pre-order price of $1300, both on the uptick. The lens glued to the body is a 24-72mm (eq) f2.8-5.6 with OIS.

Pre-orders are accepted at Adorama and B&H Photo and Amazon by Amazon itself where they have a late November 2017 release estimate.

This has been added to the New Cameras of 2017 were RAWsumers are making a late run in the year, seven new ones in 2017, versus eight new DSLRs and ten new mirrorless cameras.

Refurbished Canon 70D with 18-135mm for $800

Lots of refurbished Canons are participating in the Pumpkin Spice Mocha sale sale at the Canon outlet store.

We previously mentioned the refurb 80D with 18-55 for $779. For a similar ballpark price, you can trade-off an older body with a better lens, it’s the manufacturer refurbished Canon 70D with 18-135mm with a 1-year Canon USA warranty for $800 with free shipping.

This kit is almost gone from authorized/reputable dealers, but its price defeats the used price of $912 at B&H Photo in “Condition 9” with only a 90-day B&H Used warranty.

Refurbished Canon 80D with 18-55 w/1-YR Warranty for $779 [80D w/18-135 for $1079]

Back to the Canon Pumpkin Spice sales we go, where, despite the goofy name for their sale, all these come with a 1-year Canon USA warranty and very competitive prices on some items compared to buying them new condition at authorized dealers.

The Canon 80D with the 18-55mm lens currently goes for $1250 at authorized dealers such as Adorama.

But if you buy manufacturer refurbished with a 1-year warranty from the Canon USA Outlet store, you can get the Canon 80D with 18-55mm kit for $779 with free shipping. That’s 38% off the new condition price and you still get the same warranty!

If you don’t want/need the 18-55 kit lens, you can sell, donate, trade, gift or experiment upon the 18-55 lens!

The discount is not as big, but it’s less if you are instead interested in the 80D with 18-135mm kit. It goes for $1500 at authorized dealers versus $1079 at Canon USA Outlet.

Refurbished Canon Mirrorless w/1-YR Warranty: M10 w/15-45 and two Grips for $399; M3 with 18-55 and EVF-DC1 EVF for $499

Three of the four refurbished Olympus refills of yesterday continue (the E-M10 II and silver Pen-F) to be in-stock as of the time of writing, and so do many of the Canon Pumpkin Spice Sales.

A couple of them are “take pictures with” kits if you want to try out the Canon Mirrorless system without spending too much money on it. Both the M3 and M10 mirrorless cameras are starting to fade out in new condition from authorized dealers (eg a number of kits are gone from B&H and Adorama).

Both of the kits offered by the Canon USA store come with a full 1-year warranty and they also come with free accessories to make them more tempting…

Canon M10

The refurbished Canon M10 with 15-45mm EF-M in the black color scheme goes for $399 and includes two free BG-E3 grips, one brown, one black. They go for $24 each on their own. You can keep the extra grips but they are also simple enough to sell or trade with photo-friends…

In new condition, this kit goes for $450 at Adorama without the two free BG-E3 grips. So mayhaps the grips are the deciding factor?

Canon M3

Meanwhile the refurbished Canon M3 with 18-55 IS STM EF-M goes for $499 and it has a freebie of its own, the EVF-DC1 Electronic Viewfinder included automatically by Canon’s outlet store while this promotion is running…

In new condition, this kit is not available at B&H and Adorama, but you can get the M3 body only with the usual freebies (NOT the EVF-DC1 EVF) for $429 at Adorama. The EVF-DC1 is a more expensive freebie, it goes for around $200 on its own, and it’s more versatile, you can also use it with the G3 X and G1 X II rawsumers, which by the way are also on sale as part of the Pumpkin Sale.

PS: it appears we have an impromptu theme today, long-ass/long-winded posts 🙂

Refurbished Canon G3 X rawsumer for $660

The new condition Canon G3 X goes for $850 with free accessories at some authorized Canon USA dealers, such as Adorama. But if you are prefer a lower price, and you are comfortable with refurbished…

… you can get it in manufacturer refurbished condition for $660 at the official Canon USA Outlet with a 1-year Canon USA warranty.

Refurbished Canon G9 X rawsumer for $300

The Canon G9 X goes for $400 in new condition at authorized dealers, while the G9 X II goes for $450. If you are interested in the first generation, an alternative may be to go the way of the refurbished, especially when you can get it in manufacturer refurbished condition with a 1-year warranty from the official Canon USA Outlet store.

This is part of the Pumpkin Spice Sale. Neither pumpkin, nor spice are included 🙂

Refurbished Canon D-Rebel T6i w/18-55 & 55-250 for $560

If you are looking for a “take pictures with” Canon DSLR kit without breaking the bank, the Canon USA Outlet store is offering the manufacturer refurbished Canon D-Rebel T6i Two Lens Kit with the 18-55 EF-S IS STM and 55-250 IS STM lenses along with a 1-year Canon USA warranty for $560.

This is a limited time offer, part of their Pumpkin Spice Refurbished Sale.

PS: if they chose that name, they should have been giving everyone who buy a camera or lens a promo code for a free PSL 😉

Canon G9 X with PIXMA PRO 100 and Paper for $400 after $350 MIR (prepaid AMEX GC)

The Canon G9 X compact with RAW (previous generation model – see Fixed Lens Camera Price Chart for a refresher on Canon’s G models) goes for $400 in new condition at authorized dealers, while the G9 X II goes for $450.

If you prefer the G9 X (first generation), AND you want the Canon PIXMA PRO 100 printer, AND you don’t object to doing mailing rebates and spending AMEX gift cards AND you still want to end up paying $400 out of pocket, then …

… to B&H Photo we go where they bundle the black Canon G9 X (first generation) with the PIXMA PRO 100 printer and its trusty sidekick (50pk 13×19″ photo paper). You pay $749 at checkout, receive the order, make sure all is well, file the mail-in rebates following instructions and deadlines, and a few weeks later, you receive a $350 prepaid American Express gift card by mail, thus making it a very long sentence, and more importantly, a $400 after $350 MIR promotion.

On the other hand, if you prefer the G9 X II with the PIXMA PRO 100 and paper promotion, you end up paying around $30 more [than the price of the G9X II alone] after rebate. In either black or brown, the G9 X II bundle is $479 after a $350 prepaid AMEX GC rebate.

This round of PIXMA mail-in rebates expires 9/30/17. The prices of the cameras themselves and the bundle can change independently of the mail-in rebate amount which is fixed for the duration of this promotion.

PS: I have a feeling I could have written this post with fewer words but an attempt to optimize it typically results in 2-3 additional paragraphs 🙂

Canon M5 Options: refurb w/full warranty for $750, new with Pixma PRO 100 Printer for $959 after MIR

The Canon M5 body only mirrorless camera goes for $929 at authorized dealers, some of which are offering free accessories with it, such as Adorama.

Or it can participate in the Pixma AMEX MIR promotions, such as B&H Photo where you can get the M5 body only along with the Pixma PRO 100 printer and its trusty SG-201 sidekick (50pk 13×19 inch photo paper) for $959 after a $350 mail-in rebate (prepaid AMEX gift card).

Or if you just want the Canon M5 body only kit, without freebies or printers, you can get it in manufacturer refurbished condition for $750 with free shipping and a 1-year warranty from the official Canon USA store.

Pre-order new Canon M100 mirrorless camera

Canon is back with their renewed interest in their mirrorless system. They have a new camera, the M100, that will be available in two options. For $600, with the 15-45mm kit lens, and for $950 with the 15-45 and the 55-200 lenses. They are available in black or white and pre-ordering is available at B&H Photo and Aamzon itself and Adorama.

With this announcement, mirrorless cameras “scored an equalizer”, making the score 8 vs 8 in DSLR vs Mirrorless among the New Cameras of 2017.

Canon D-Rebel T5i w/18-55 and Pixma PRO 100 and Paper for $599 after $350 MIR (prepaid AMEX GC)

Can you be a Rebel without a Cause? Can you be a Rebel without a Canon? Existential questions to ponder in our spare time, but in the meantime, B&H Photo has a Canon D-Rebel T5i bundle going for $599 after a $350 MIR (mail-in rebate) as a prepaid AMEX gift card.

You pay $949 at checkout, and you receive the Canon D-Rebel T5i with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM, along with the Canon Pixma PRO 100 printer [which is on a MIR promotion on its own if you don’t want/need the D-Rebel T5i kit], and its trusty sidekick, the 50pk Canon SG-201 13×19″ photo paper.

Once you receive the order and all is well, and following the deadlines and instructions, you submit the mail-in rebate, and a few weeks later, a juicy $350 prepaid American Express gift card arrives in the mail. Thus making this offer $599 after a $350 MIR.

This promotion expires 8/8/17 at 11:59pm ET (or earlier if sold out).

Canon 5D Mark IV Body with Pixma PRO 100 printer and Paper for $3328 after $350 MIR

As you can see in the Full Frame Price Charts of July 2017, the Canon 5D Mark IV body only goes for $3300 at authorized dealers, which are allowed to include free accessories with it (eg Adorama).

Or if you are comfortable with mail-in rebates, prepaid AMEX gift cards, and want the Canon PIXMA PRO 100 printer with its 50pk of 13×19″ photo paper sidekick, then off to B&H Photo we go where this combo goes for $3329 with free shipping after a $350 mail-in rebate (prepaid AMEX gift card). Offer ends 7/31/17.

Canon G5X with Pixma PRO 100 and SG-201 for $650 after $350 MIR

The Canon G5X goes for $730 in new condition at authorized dealers (another one of the deals surfacing because of the Price Charts price-checking), but if you want to get it for less and you are not afraid of mail-in rebates and prepaid gift cards then…

… then to B&H Photo we go, where you can get the G5 X camera, along with the Pixma PRO 100 printer, and its SG-201 trusty sidekick paper (13×19″) for $650 after a $350 mail-in rebate (prepaid AMEX gift cards).

Canon currently has an elaborate G-series line-up, with all the odd numbers up to 10 included. All except for the G1X use 1-inch sensors. The G1X is a 1.5″. A total of six active models are currently available (because the G9X has two generations available).

PRO TIP on mail-in rebates: if the mere mention of a mail-in rebate has you changing colors and dropping your last meal on the floor, you may want to avoid them! You can get some really good deals, but if you really hate the idea of doing and dealing with mail-in rebate issues, you may want to prioritize your ease of mind over the deal 🙂

Canon G9X with Pixma PRO 100 and SG-201 for $400 after $350 MIR

The Canon G9X (first generation) goes for $400 on its own, but if you are not a afraid of mail-in rebates and prepaid AMEX gift cards, and you need the Pixma PRO 100 printer and its trusty side-kick the SG-201 13×19″ photo paper, you can get them all together for $400 after a $350 mail-in rebate (prepaid AMEX gift card) at B&H Photo.

Open box Canon 7D II Body w/1yr warranty for $1349 + S&H

And now we are price-checking APS-C dSLRs for the next installment in the Price Charts series and as this happens, potential discounts or sales and such may come up. Which brings us to the Canon 7D Mark II. If you are a fan of open-box camera gear, the 7D II body only is available in open box condition for $1349 plus shipping at B&H Photo with a 1-year warranty from B&H Photo (not Canon USA).

Refurbished Canon G9X with case, strap, 1-YR warranty for $299

The Canon G9X goes for $400 in new condition with various free accessories (eg Adorama) but it also has to contest with the Canon G9X II which goes for $430. So in other words, if you want to get the first generation model, you may as well go the refurbished route…

… because the refurbished first generation Canon G9X is on sale for $299 with a free neckstrap and a free camera case and a 1-year Canon warranty at the official Canon USA Outlet store in either the black or the brown color schemes.

Refurbished Canon 80D with 18-55 for $799

The new condition Canon 80D body only goes for $1100, so this is another place where you can save by going refurbished but still get the full warranty. The refurbished Canon 80D with 18-55 goes for $799 at the official Canon USA outlet with a 1-year warranty from Canon. This is the sale price as the refurbished 80D body only. You can always trade, sell, gift, or experiment upon the 18-55 lens if you don’t need it. This one of their 4th of July DSLR sales.

PS: the refurbished 80D with 18-135mm goes for $300 more ($1099).

Refurbished Canon 6D Body (first gen) w/1yr warranty for $1099

Canon launched this week the 6D Mark II for $2000, but if you want to get Canon 35mm full frame for almost half of that price, the first generation Canon 6D body only kit is on sale for $1099 with free shipping at the Canon USA Outlet store with a 1-year Canon USA warranty. This is part of their 4th of July Savings sale.

The new condition price for the first generation 6D is $1399 at the moment (eg Adorama – page down to see all options). With a new model coming out, strategically, if you are getting the previous generation model, going refurbished or used makes more sense, especially if you can get it with a full warranty. You can put the difference towards a future upgrade or towards moar moar moar lenses.

Pre-order new Canon 6D Mark II for $1999

The Canon 6D line now has a second member! The Canon 6D Mark II is now officially official with its touchscreen Vari-angle “twist and shout” display and its 26mp 35mm FF sensor! The camera is available for pre-ordering in three official kits as follows:

+ SL2 Body Only for $550 at Amazon and Adorama and B&H Photo

+ SL2 with 18-55 EF-S IS STM for $700 at B&H Photo and Adorama and Amazon

This has been added to the New Cameras of 2017, with the DSLRs now taking a 7-6 “lead” over the Mirrorless cameras 🙂

A similar offer is available on the 5D Mark IV with 24-105 bundle for $4229 after $350 mail-in rebate (prepaid American Express gift card)

Refurbished Canon Elph 190 IS with 1-Year Warranty for $79

This goes for $120 in new condition at authorized dealers, but if you want to save about 1/3rd of that, you can get the blue color of the manufacturer refurbished Canon Powershot Elph 190 IS P&S digital camera for $79 along with an 8GB microSD memory card and a 1-year Canon USA warranty at the official Canon USA store. The other two colors (red, black) are out of stock and cannot be ordered at the moment.

For more action, check the other refurbished Powershot options available there. Of the 14 listed, 10 of them are currently in-stock (and can be ordered).
