A number of Photographer’s Guide ebooks by Alexander White on sale for $8 each: Fuji X100S, various Panasonic LX*, Sony RX1/RX10/RX100 models, Etc

UPDATE: Alexander S. White has written a lot of camera guides for various RAWsumers/serious-compacts and a number of his ebooks are currently on sale for $8 for the Kindle! You can find them all under his name.

Among the camera guides that are going for $8 as of the time of writing:

+ Fuji X100S
+ Sony RX1R II
+ Sony RX10 IV, I
+ Sony RX100 V, IV, II, I
+ Nikon P900, P610, P600, P510, B700, etc
+ Panasonic LX10/LX15, LX100, LX5, ZS70/TZ90
+ Canon S95
+ some Leica D-Lux models

There are two ways to get a feel for these camera guides before buying them:

1. you can get read Kindle sample (typically the first few pages of the book)
2. if you go to the hardback/print version of the book, it may have “Look Inside” enabled. “Look Inside” often lets you jump all over the book, and that’s the best way to get a feel for it since you can read actual content, not just the beginning

PS: you can find out at any time how much no-rush shipping digital credits you have by doing to amazon.com/norushcredits – it’s easy to remember, no rush credits. As far as I know, there’s no way to tell ahead of time whether an ebook is eligible or not for no-rush-credits.

PS2: if you have any digital no-rush-credits in your account and/or promotional Amazon credits, they will be applied automatically towards the purchase before your gift card balance and credit card is charged. Some publishers may not allow digital credits to be applied towards the purchase of their ebooks, so YMMV. The order receipt/email will tell you for sure after the purchase.

Used Fuji X100F Black for $986

The new condition Fuji X100F big sensor prime continues to go for $1300 in new condition at authorized Fuji USA dealers. Even the freebies that are included, when they are included, are very basic. That strong is the new condition price. But while updating the Stock Status Tracker we noticed a breakthrough for the used prices of the black color scheme, they are under $1000 at two reputable photo dealers:

+ USED “Very Good” condition by MPEX via Amazon for $986
+ MPEX is Midwest Photo Exchange, ships directly from Ohio, not Prime eligible

+ USED Condition 8+ at B&H Photo for $1000

Refurbished Canon G9X II w/1-YR W for $330

The new condition Canon G9X II goes for $429 at authorized Canon USA dealers such as B&H Photo and Adorama and Amazon itself.

If you want to do the mail-in rebate thing, you can get it for $429 after a $350 mail-in rebate at Adorama bundled with the Pixma PRO 100 printer and its trusty sidekick paper (SG-201).

If you want a lower price, and don’t want to deal with mail-in rebate, but you still want to get a 1-year warranty, the official Canon USA store is offering it in manufacturer refurbished condition for $330 with free shipping and a 1-year warranty in either the black or silver/tan color schemes. Both are in-stock as of the time of writing.

The above are new condition. The manufacturer refurbished G9X remains at $250 and it remains out of stock and unorderable…

Sony RX100 Mark IV and III dropped $50 each

We already mentioned that the Sony RX100 Mark V went down $50 (from $1000 to $950) and is getting a $50 gift card as well at select authorized dealers, but when comparing to our most recent Fixed Lens Cameras Price Chart, we hadn’t posted that two other RX100 models dropped $50 as well (but they are not getting a $50 gift card).

Here are the prices:

+ RX100 Mark III for $700 at Amazon and Adorama (with extras) and B&H Photo

+ RX100 Mark IV for $850 at Amazon and Adorama (with extras) and B&H Photo

Fuji X100F Black drops to $1274

While updating the Stock Status Tracker, I noticed an interesting development! The black Fuji X100F is down to $1274 at Amazon by Amazon actual with up to three per customer. The usual Fuji X100F is $1299. The amount of the discount is obviously not big, but an X100F discount is a rare thing from non-importers!

A sign of the shape of things to come or some random price change by the Amazon AI Price Bots?

Now shipping: Canon G1X III for $1300

Canon abandoned their once storied G-series of RAWsumers, but thankfully the grown-ups prevailed and the G-series was brought back bigger and stronger! The new flagship of the G-series is the G1X III with an APS-C sensor, and it is now in-stock and ready to ship at its starting price of $1300 at B&H Photo with free expedited shipping!

B&H Photo is out of the gate first, Amazon’s estimate is November 30, and Adorama is in pre-order status.

OR for the price of $1300, you can instead buy five manufacturer refurbished Canon G9X rawsumers ($250 each), and still have money left for a nice dinner 🙂

Refurbished Canon G9X w/1-YR warranty for $250

The problem with the Canon Outlet specials is that sometimes they sell out really fast, but thankfully we managed to catch one of the two colors of the Canon G9X RAWsumer still in-stock, the brown/silver color scheme of the manufacturer refurbished Canon G9X for $250 with free shipping and a 1-year warranty. The black color scheme is sold out. You also get a FREE color matching camera case and camera strap when you add the camera to the shopping cart.

In new condition, this went for $400 when I posted the RAWsumer price chart a couple of weeks ago and still goes for that price at B&H Photo (with extras) and Amazon itself.
