Through my relationship with the good folks at Amplis Canada, Canadian readers here at Photography Life, as well as on my photography blog, can now take advantage of a special 5% discount when they purchase from the Amplis Store.
Our friends at B&H have just let us know that our readers will be getting an exclusive deal for DxO OpticsPro 10 Elite Edition for the next 3 days. Normally priced at $199, the software will be discounted to $129, so it is a pretty good deal saving you $70 on this DVD. Aside from the powerful RAW and JPEG processing engine for optical corrections built in OpticsPro, the Elite edition includes PRIME Denoising Technology, ClearView Haze Reduction, Anti-Moire tool, ICC Profile Management, Multiple Outputs, Presets and a total of 3 software activations.
We have just received information from our partners B&H Photo Video and Adorama that Canon is significantly dropping prices on both 5D Mark III and 6D cameras. It is hard to say whether these price drops are coming as a result of the Japanese Yen depreciation, or perhaps Canon is planning to release replacements to these cameras soon and wants to clean off the shelves before new products hit the market. Either way, these are great prices on great cameras. We have previously reviewed both Canon 5D Mark III and Canon 6D and found them to be quite solid. So if you are invested in Canon glass and accessories and need to replace that aging 5D or 5D Mark II, or want to move up to full-frame from an APS-C camera, this might be a good opportunity to do so. At $2,499 for the Canon 5D Mark III ($300 price drop and $300 instant rebate) and $1,399 for the Canon 6D, these are the lowest prices on the two cameras we have seen to date.
Looks like both Nikon and Canon are not very happy with their holiday sales, since the two just announced aggressive price drops on their high-end cameras. The Nikon D810 has been dropped by $300 to $2,996.95 (regularly $3,299) and the already discounted Nikon D610 has been dropped by another $100 to $1,496.95 (regularly $1,999). Full-frame has never been cheaper! And here is the bonus part – these price drops are available with Nikon’s Buy Together and Save promotion, so you can get additional discounts on lenses. The icing on the cake is free expedited shipping, along with plenty of goodies worth up to $120 from B&H.
Although Black Friday is supposed to be “the day” for great deals, I’ll admit that I was not all that impressed with what Nikon had to offer, aside from a couple of fine deals on lower-end cameras. Well, it is Cyber Monday today and things are looking much more interesting, with some great deals from Nikon definitely worth looking at. The Nikon Coolpix A did not sell all that well for $579 on Black Friday, but it seems like Nikon is either releasing a replacement, or just wants to clear off the shelves, since the price has been slashed even more – the Nikon Coolpix A is on sale for $499, for today only until the stock is gone (about 10% of the stock has already been claimed). At this price, the little camera with a large APS-C sensor is a great deal, so if you need a small pocketable travel camera, you might want to check it out! In addition to this, there are a few other deals like the Nikon 1 V2 kit for $499 that I found and picked for our readers. If I find anything else worth posting today, I will update this article.
The shopping craze has started in the United States for this holiday season, so we wanted to do a single post that shows all the best deals we were able to find for our readers. We will be updating this article several times today and we are planning to do another post for the “Cyber Monday”, but only if there is anything worth posting. There are a few great deals going on today, but not anything particularly great from Nikon (sadly), aside from their lower-end DX and CX offers. Sony has some great mirrorless deals and Canon also has a few good lens and camera deals that might be of interest.
It is not the holiday season yet and we are already getting those hard to resist deals. Today’s deal is for the newly announced Nikon D750 (read our extensive review), which you can get together with the Nikkor 24-120mm f/4G VR lens (see our review) for $2,996.95 at B&H Photo Video and other retailers. The D750 body only costs $2,299 and the lens goes for $1,299, so that’s an instant $600 discount on the bundle.
We would like to congratulate our readers from the USA with the Independence Day! Fourth of July is a big day not just because you get to see beautiful fireworks (see my article on photographing fireworks) and enjoy a day off celebrating and remembering the sacrifices of the founders of this great country, but also because you get a great opportunity to save. Below are some of the best deals that we found for you.
Our friends at B&H Photo Video earlier today informed us that the X-Rite i1Display Pro monitor / projector calibration and profiling tool is on a flash sale, at almost half off, expiring tonight! At $139.95 ($110 off the original price of $249.95), this is an insane deal that we wanted to share with our readers. I wish this deal was available at the time when I bought mine, because I paid the full price. For those that do not know about the X-Rite i1Display Pro, it is the best device calibration tool on the market today. I previously have used the Datacolor Spyder 3 Pro calibration system and I ended up switching to the X-Rite, because it is better, more accurate and less buggy (more on that in our upcoming review).
With higher megapixel cameras, storage needs are growing rapidly, especially once you start using a redundant setup with dual cards mirroring data on modern DSLRs. I have been using SanDisk cards for many years now and whenever I see a good sale, I jump on to get the best deals. B&H just let us know that SanDisk is running a one day heavy discount promo, which will end tonight. So if you are looking for a good deal, check out some of these savings on all types of cards, including SanDisk’s Extreme Pro line (up to 160 MB/sec!).
