The Canon G3X compact with RAW goes for $850 on its own, but for one extra dollar you can get it bundled with the Canon EVF-DC1 as a limited time promotion at Adorama… This is one of their many Father’s Day Specials…
If of the many compacts with RAW it is the Sony RX10 II the one you want, it is on sale in new condition for $998 thanks to a $200 instant savings promotion at Abt Electronics. The shipping estimate is 7-14 business days. They are authorized online dealers.
The Canon G9 X compact with RAW goes for $400 at authorized Canon dealers, but they are allowed to add free accessories with purchase. If you are an accessories hoarder or if you would like to try the Corel digital imaging software AND you also want the Canon G9 X, all three bundled together in a big bundle at Adorama for $399 PLUS shipping (around $11 from East to West Coast, enter zipcode to get accurate estimate).
It is available in either the brown G9X or the black G9X.
The extra shipping fee translates to the Corel software bundle that includes AfterShot PRO 2 and Paintshop X8 PRO (and a few other non-imaging titles), along with a 58-inch Takama tripod with 3-way head, a Lowepro pouch, a 32GB Lexar card, and the obligatory cleaning kit.
For the boldly going early adopters, the third generation of the Sony RX10 1-inch superzoom (with its 24-600mm eq) is now in-stock and ready to ship to your front door (or other address of choice) for its starting price of $1500 with free shipping at B&H Photo.

Fuji started a successful run with APS-C Big Sensor Primes with the X100 and now their line-up has expanded and prices decreased too. The brand new Fuji X70 sells at its starting price of $700 but you have a choice of freebies. At B&H Photo you get a free Fujifilm BLC-X70 Leather Case (Black) automatically included by B&H. This is mentioned right above the Product Highlights (see annotated screenshot crop below):
If you don’t need the official case, or you prefer a boatload of free accessories, Adorama is bundling it with Corel software bundle (includes AfterShot PRO 2 and Paintshop PRO X8) along with a ProOptics 49mm Essentials Filter kit, a Lowepro pouch, a 16GB Toshiba SD card, and the obligatory cleaning kit.
If of the many compacts with RAW it is the black Fuji X10 the one you want, you can get it for $300 with free shipping by SSE Photo & Video thru Amazon. This ships directly from the seller (SSE Photo & Video) but if you are a Prime member, you will get Prime shipping benefits (this was a recently added benefit to Amazon Prime, select sellers offer free 2-day shipping on products purchased by Prime members ~ not sure how the cost is split between the seller and Amazon but that’s their behind the scenes thing, not the consumer’s)… Thanks to S.A. Anderson for the email alert on this…
PS: for the speed readers out there, this is the older Fuji X10 fixed lens camera, not to be confused with the newer Fuji X-T10 interchangeable lens camera.
The Sony RX10 II (second generation) is bundled with a $100 B&H Photo Gift Card, together going for $1200 with free shipping at B&H Photo. Alternately you can select bundles with Free Accessories or a Free Sony ECM-XYST1M Mic instead of the $100 gift card.
Keep in mind the last model is the 3rd generation RX10 with a May 2016 release estimate and a starting price of $1500.
The Canon Pixma mail-in rebates are also good for some of the Canon RAWsumers. The Canon G9 X goes for $400 on its own at authorized dealers, but if you also want the Pixma PRO 100 printer and don’t object to mail-in rebates (prepaid American Express gift card), you can get it for $350 after a $350 mail-in rebate at Adorama. This includes the standard Canon G9 X kit, the Pixma PRO 100 printer, its trusty SG-201 sidekick (50pk 13×19″ paper) and camera bag and 32GB Sandisk card.
The Fuji X100T BSP (Big Sensor Prime) goes for $1300 at authorized dealers who are allowed to offer some bonus items with it (eg free Rode Mic at Adorama or 4% rewards and 32GB SDHC at B&H Photo).
But if you are more of a risk taker and imported grey-market items do not give you nightmares on Warranty Street, then among the latest eBay Deals we find a new condition imported grey-market Fuji X100T with a 1-year seller warranty (not Fuji USA warranty) going for $800 with free shipping in either black or silver. The seller is Electronics Valley (99.5%) and it ships from New Jersey.
As usual with these type of situations, it is up to you to decide what’s right for you and how much risk and adventure you are willing to invite. We blog, you decide!
Speaking of eBay, they have a semi-curated refurbished camera gear sale with 60+ items included.
The Canon G9 X dropped to $400 at authorized dealers. Adorama is offering it at this price but also adding a handful of free accessories with it, a 58″ Takama tripod, a 32GB Sandisk microSD with adapter, a Lowepro pouch, a cleaning kit and the Corel software bundle (includes Aftershot PRO 2 and Paintshop PRO X8 among others). This is available for both the brown G9X and the black G9X.
The new Sony RX10 III is coming out in a few weeks for $1500. If you are convinced now to go for the previous generation model, the RX10 II, you can get it for $1200 with 4% promotional rewards (around $48) at B&H Photo… On the other hand, if you prefer tangible accessories in the hand instead of promotional rewards, you can get it for the same price with free Lowepro shoulder bag, 32GB Sandisk Extreme card, cleaning kit and the Corel software kit that includes Aftershot Pro 2 and Paintshop Pro X8 among other titles at Adorama…

Nikon is joining the party of larger than 1/1.x” sensor compacts with RAW with a new series of cameras, the DL-Series, with a 1-inch backlit CMOS sensor in each and everyone of the three of them.
