Here’s a quick deal alert for all you Nikon shooters, or those who want to become one. Nikon D850 is now the cheapest it has ever been: the camera body, along with a bag and a 64GB memory card is on a discount, priced at $2,496.95.
The two high-resolution 50-megapixel Canon DSLRs, the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R are still very respectable cameras, despite having been released way back in early 2015. They weren’t cheap cameras, either, launching at $3,699 and $3,899. That regular retail price still stands today. Or at least, it did. Right now B&H is listing the EOS 5DS for $1,299 and the EOS 5DS R for $1,499.
Yes, you read that right. That’s a $2,400 discount from their regular retail price. I don’t know if they’ve put these offers up just to compete with Amazon Prime Day, or everybody’s just trying to unload stock in anticipation of a super high res RF mount camera that would destroy their value anyway. But if you want one, better hurry!
If you’re looking for a new speedlight, modifier, a transmitter, or even studio accessories – now’s the perfect time to visit B&H. There are plenty of items on a discount, especially Godox flashes, and some of these deals could save you over $100. If you order a few items… well, it adds up! I guess Black Friday came early at B&H, so check out the offer and see if there’s something for you.
Adobe’s been getting a lot of press lately. Some good, but mostly bad. It’s caused a lot of people to become very upset, particularly people on Twitter who don’t understand what the word “subscription” means and think they’re still buying a perpetual license. Regardless, it’s bound to have lost Adobe a few subscribers.
To help draw in some fresh ones, though, Adobe is knocking 40% off the “All Apps” package in at least the USA and the UK. The regular $52.99/mo US package drops to $29.99/mo, and the UK’s £49.94 package comes down to a somewhat more manageable £30.34/mo.
As a creative, I’m sure you have friends asking for your services – but they’d like to get a massive discount. Josh Enobakhare (aka Olufemii Tutorials) discusses this problem and offers some tips how to deal with this without offending anyone or undermining the value of your work.
Josh says his video is aimed mainly at those who offer expensive and large-scale services. However, from my experience, people will often ask for a discount no matter what you charge – so this video can be useful to everyone, really.
If you’ve been considering switching to a Sony mirrorless camera, this could be the right time. Sony has announced an offer that allows you to trade in your old (but working) DSLR or mirrorless for some of their models, including the new Sony Alpha a9.
If you decide to engage in the “trade up,” you’ll get the value of your old camera, plus up to $500 bonus offer. The offer doesn’t only include the cameras, but also a variety of full-frame lenses and accessories. And depending on the Sony camera you’d like to buy, you can trade in any camera model you currently own.
Sony’s online store probably received a record-breaking amount of visits yesterday after word broke out that several cameras and lenses were listed for as low as $200.
Expecting the orders to be cancelled, many people placed them anyway in hope that the company will honor the listed prices and absorb the price difference.
In a rare incident were a camera company actually met its customers’ expectations, Sony has started cancelling orders.
It seems like PayPal orders have not been cancelled so far.
A deeper look, however, reveals that several other products, including the a77II were listed for ridiculously low prices.
With so many product prices being slashed, it seems increasingly likely that a (very) disgruntled worker or a hacker attack is behind this.
The largest price reduction was on the 500mm f/4 telephoto lens which was advertised for just under $1,300 – a full $11,700 off its regular price!
Most of the prices have been corrected, while others are busy being fixed, but will Sony fulfill the orders that have already been placed? [Read More…]
