There are convertible cars and laptops, but there are also convertible camera bags. In this case, this Vanguard Quovio 44 Convertible Backpack/Sling converts between a backpack and a sling bag, a rather “widescreen” sling. See gallery pictures for more on this, which is on sale for $120 with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo.
Another tripod sale came up while doing the Canon Lenses with Free Tripods post, the new condition Vanguard Alta Pro 264AB 100 Aluminum Tripod Kit is going for $155 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself with a limit of ten units per customer. This too looks like a computer-generated price-match of 3rd-party sellers.
PS: if you haven’t seen this yet, the Wall Street Journal has an article on the High Speed Price Wars that happen behind the scenes on Amazon product pages as various sellers compete with each other and the world on pricing. [MUST READ!]
Some people like bundles with lots of small accessories, others don’t because they don’t need/want extra small accessories. But they may be a lot more interested when camera gear are bundled with “real” accessories, in this case, “real” Manfrotto and Vanguard tripods! Adorama is offering some of these bundles as part of their Canon Instant Rebates special promotion:

The Canon 100-400mm f4.5-5.6L II USM IS is one of the Adorama VIP sales with a bundle of many free small accessories for $2000 BUT if you prefer one big accessory instead of a handful of near-consumables, Adorama has another bundle, also going for $2000 with free shipping, bundled WITH the Vanguard 264AB-100 4-Section Aluminum Alloy Alta Pro 264-AT Tripod Legs with SBH-100 QR Ballhead. The Vanguard goes for $180 on its own. The bundle is “temporarily on backorder” because the tripod is backordered, but you can order it if you like the price/combo.
