Nikon Z Month at Adorama (with FREE Accessories)

If you’ve made the big decision to try out the Nikon Z system, it is Z Day, okay Z Month, at Adorama where they have many Nikon Z bundles, a number of which include the customary “FREE Accessories” bundles with all kinds of accessorapalooza offerings.

The link above is sorted by newest product first, which is why it starts with the Nikon Z Football Club (aka “Z fc”).

There are eight pages of offerings, and it includes DSLR gear as well. After all, Nikon does not have _that_ many Z system products and I’m guessing they did not want to offend the DSLR users. Yes, the customer politics of having multiple DSLR and mirrorless systems running in parallel in perfect harmony 🙂

Nikon Z5 Body with choice of FREEbies for $997

And we are back with another round of Black Friday postings! We start with Nikon’s Full Frame Inch 😉

The Nikon Z5 body only is down to $997, yes, a triple figure 35mm full frame mirrorless, but that’s not all!

Adorama has various FREEbie bundle options for the same price. You can find them all by clicking on the various options at the aforelinked listing:

+ Free Accessories kit includes shoulder bag, 64GB Lexar UHS-I SDXC, Ulanzi MT-11 Multifunctional Octopus Tripod with Ball Head

+ Essentials kit includes 64GB Sandisk Extreme SDXC, shoulder bag, extra battery

+ Free Software includes Corel Art Suite kit (Mac or PC), shoulder bag, 64GB Lexar UHS-I SDXC

They Are Back (OR never left): refurbished Nikon Z5 sale: Body $899, w/24-50 $1099, w/24-200 $1699

These were an Adorama daily deal. The daily deal ended but I forgot to check whether the price of these changed or not. Fast-forward to now, and I rechecked the price, and the price remains the sale price, or it went up and now it is down again ~ I do not know. What matters is that as of the time of writing, the sale price is alive and kicking… Since this is now an “organic sale”, and not a daily deal, I have no clue what will happen to it going forward…

These are manufacturer refurbished with a 90-day Nikon USA warranty…

Zoom-zoom to the Adorama daily deals until Friday at 10am ET [or earlier if sold out] for the following deals du jour:

+ manufacturer refurbished Nikon Coolpix P1000 super-superzoom (125X optical up to 3000mm eq) with 90-day Nikon USA warranty for $627

Refurb Nikon Z50 Two Lens Kit for $947 (Z 16-50, Z 50-250)

Today became an impromptu Nikon Z50 Day 🙂 We start, in reverse chronological order blog-style with the refurbished Nikon Z50 two lens kit (Z 16-50 DX VR and Z 50-250 DX VR) going for $947 at Adorama’s store with a 90-day Nikon USA warranty… This is $250 less than the new condition kits

BUT the refurbished kits are not eligible for the Nikon-blessed promotion for the new condition kits that you can add the Nikon FTZ mount adapter (Nikon F lenses to Z bodies) to a Z50 kit for just +$47 more…

Of course it is also likely/possible that someone interested in a two-lens DX kit, may not be interested right away in adapters…

Refurbished Nikon Z50 body w/90DW for $749

We previously mentioned the Nikon Z50 2-lens kit offer for $1100, BUT if you are not interested in the basic zoom kit lenses, and you want a lower entry-price into the Nikon Z system, B&H Photo is offering the refurbished Z50 body only for $749 with free US shipping and a 90-day Nikon USA warranty…

HOWEVER, the refurbished version is not eligible for the Nikon-blessed offer of adding the Nikon FTZ mount adapter (Nikon F lenses to Nikon Z bodies) for just +$47 with new condition Z50 kits. So if you have no way of procuring an adapter for less then mayhaps you are better off going with the new condition kits…

… and given the prices of the new condition kits, the Z50 body only goes for $857 while the Z50 with 16-50mm goes for $897 (+$40 for the 16-50 lens which you can resell/trade/etc), you may be better off with the latter. With these kits, for +$47 you can add the Nikon FTZ adapter. That too you can resell/trade/etc if you don’t plan on using…

The above links are at B&H Photo, but you can find similar bundles at Adorama’s listings

… but we are not done with the Z50, there’s one more post, and I promise that’s it with the Z50 for today 🙂

Sunday: Best Buy’s Nikon Z50 2-Lens Kit matched with different accessories elsewhere

The headliner of the Sunday 11/1/20 Best Buy daily deals is a Nikon Z50 two lens kit with a freebie for $1100. The two lenses are the Z 16-50mm f3.5-6.3 DX VR and the Z 50-250mm f4.5-6.3 DX VR. Thankfully Nikon gave them slightly different focal lengths from their parallel DSLR models.

The freebie is the Sunpak 12″ Bi-Color Tabletop Vlogging Kit which has a Best Buy valued price of $50 and includes a 12″ USB-powered bi-color ring-light, a flexible smartphone mount, a mini ball head (up to 4.5 lbs, aka ~2 kilos) and a bluetooth remote for iOS/Android…

BUT the $1100 price is also available at other authorized Nikon retailers with a different set of freebies…

At Adorama’s listings the freebies include a 32GB Sandisk Extreme PRO SDHC, Slinger shoulder bag, a filter kit for each lens (46mm and 62mm), card wallet, cleaning kit, and a Corel software kit in your choice of PC or Mac that includes seven titles…

Optionally, you can click on the “Special Offer” bundle and add the Nikon FTZ mount adapter (Nikon F lenses to Z bodies ~ obviously) for +$47…

At B&H Photo’s listings the freebies are a 64GB Sandisk Extreme PRO SDXC, a RJ shoulder bag, a 62mm UV filter (with a limited 10 year warranty) and a Zeiss-branded lens care kit…

Fascinating how the two top camera makers managed to have four different iLC camera systems each 🙂

Refurbished Nikon Z50 with 16-50 DX VR for $697

My oh my, an iLC camera at the Adorama daily deals, it is the manufacturer refurbished Nikon Z50 with 16-50mm f3.5-6.3 DX VR going for $697 with free US shipping and a 90-day Nikon USA warranty…

This is an APS-C Nikon mirrorless camera, and I proposed that we call the Nikon Z mirrorless cameras “Zikon”, to easily distinguish them from “Nikon” 🙂

The offers end on Thursday 10/15/20 at 10am eastern or earlier for any that may sell out ahead of its designated expiration time…

Refurbished Nikon Coolpix P1000 superzoom (125x) for $697

Okay, silliness aside, the offer is the manufacturer refurbished Nikon Coolpix P1000 superzoom going for $697 with free US shipping and a 90-day Nikon USA warranty. This camera has an insane 125x optical zoom ratio up to 3000mm eq ~ can your new iPhone 12 PRO MAX XL do this? 🙂

Also part of the sales is the Incase EO Travel Collection Hardshell Roller going for $70 with free US shipping…

The offers end on Thursday 10/15/20 at 10am eastern or earlier for any that may sell out ahead of its designated expiration time…

Surprise, surprise, it’s a CAMERA DAY at the Best Buy daily deals for Tuesday October 6 of the Crazy Year of 2020, the headliner is the Melisandre-red [okay, it’s some kind of a plum color scheme] refurbished Nikon Coolpix B500 superzoom, model 26507B, going for $150. This is a AA-powered camera (four of them) with a 40x optical zoom, something a smartphone can only do through tortured algorithms 😉

Among the rest of the Best Buy daily deals there’s the 64GB Sandisk Nintendo Switch microSDXC for $19, a 10-inch Aluratek touch-screen digital picture frame [that looks a bit like the abandoned Windows Phone UI] for $140, and a 48-pack of Insignia single-use AA batteries for $12, a mere 4 batteries per $1.

Meanwhile at the Woot daily deals there’s scratch and dent iPhone X [can’t use plural because that’s a different model {DAILY REMINDER: do not put a final “s” in your product’s model name}], Amazon Fire tablets, and a 17.3″ inch HP laptop. In the era of big-screen smartphones and tablets and 2-in-1s, a 17.3-inch laptop feels like you are using an …aircraft carrier!

Refurbished Nikon P1000 superzoom for $770 [ends Tue 10am ET]

With a crazy 125x optical zoom that goes up to 3000mm this is perhaps in a separate category, telescope-zoom or humble-zoom? 🙂

LAST CALL: 10% off Canon and Nikon gear with KEH coupon [ends Wedn PM]

In the real-world, there’s the power of love. In the world of digital cameras, there’s the power of CaNiKoN 😉 Case in point, good until Wednesday 4/8/20 at 11:59pm ET, coupon code CN4A gets you 10% off Canon and Nikon camera gear participating in this promotion. As usual, their shopping cart is the ultimate decider on what qualifies…

EXCLUDED are “NEW” condition, “USED – Like New” and digital starter kits…

KEH Starter Kit #1: USED Nikon D5100 with 18-55 and Extras and 180-day warranty for $239

We have the first of three USED camera “Starter Kits” offered by KEH Camera. This one is the lowest price one as you are getting an older DSLR (released in 2011) but you are also paying a lot less for a non-entry-level tier APS-C DSLR. It is the USED Nikon D5100 Starter Kit that includes the 18-55mm DX (no VR) lens, battery, charger, 52mm UV filter, camera strap and 16GB memory card along with a 180-day warranty offered by KEH. All this for $239 plus shipping…

Optionally, the starter kits (and many other purchases at KEH) are also offered through an installment plan through Affirm. As always with these type of financing offers, be sure to read the terms and conditions before jumping in, and look at how they figure into your financial planning and such…

KEH Starter Kit #2: USED Nikon D3300 with 18-55 DX VR AF-P and Extras and 180-day warranty for $269

On the other hand, if you want a more recent DSLR body, KEH Camera is also offering a Nikon D3300 centered Starter Kit. The D3300 was released in 2014. It comes with the AF-P 18-55mm X VR lens, battery, charger, 55mm UV filter, camera strap and 16GB memory card. You also get a 180-day warranty from KEH. The price is $269 plus shipping…

Given today’s memory card prices, you may scoff at a 16GB card, but given that this is a “starter kit”, it is a great idea to include a memory card, so a potential buyer or gift recipient can start shooting out of the box without additional purchases. Then one can procure additional memory cards as needed 🙂

Refurbished Nikon D610 body only for $665

We have a “Refurbished Full Frame Trilogy” of posts, starting with the refurbished US model Nikon D610 body only for $665 with free S&H for Prime members or $6 flat for non-members. Yes, you can haz a full framer for under $666 🙂

Up to ten per customer at the sale price. It comes with a 90-day Woot warranty. This one does not have an optional SquareTrade warranty offer [or I didn’t find it].

This too surfaced through the Woot Categories, a much easier way to see what else the still-chaotic Woot is offering 🙂

10% off many Canon and Nikon items with KEH coupon [ends Thur PM]

CaNikon fans unite and take over! Good until Thursday 1/30/20 at 11:59pm ET, coupon code CN1A gets you 10% off Canon and Nikon gear at the KEH Camera website. As usual, you can test the coupon in their shopping cart without the need to login or signup…

NOTE that as usual there are exclusions to the offer: NO NEW condition gear, NO “Used – Like New” gear, and NO “Digital Photography Starter Kits”…

EU: Nikon Z and DSLR and Lenses sales [50 options]

Amazon Germany is having another Nikon gear sale featuring Z and DSLR camera bodies, along with various lenses along with a few Coolpixies as well. Lenses are all over the place, including the 20/4.5-5.6G DX VR for 225 euro and the 50/1.8G FX for 150 euro…

A total of 50 options are available, too many to list here individually…

Nikon D5600 Options abound (NC Two Lens Kit for $600, Refurb Body for $400, Etc)

The Nikon D3500 two lens kit goes for $400 as part of the Cyber FriMonday festivities, but if you want a more advanced DSLR as a jumping point into the Nikon system, the new condition (NC) Nikon D5600 two lens kit (18-55, 70-300) is currently going for $600 at various authorized dealers (eg B&H Photo and Amazon)…

However, if you do not want/need the kit lenses and prefer a lower priced entry, Adorama has D5600 refurbished options with the body only going for $397, with 18-55 for $430, and two lens kit for $500. But if you prefer the new condition two lens kit they have a bundle with modest freebies (16GB SD, Lowerpro bag, lens filters, Corel, etc)
