B&H Photo launches a wave of Camera and Lens Specials
It's quasi Black Friday at B&H Photo as they have launched a number of new camera gear specials. If interested, keep in mind that the B&H Photo website does not accept orders between Friday evening and Saturday evening in the eastern time zone, so plan your shoppings accordingly.
We start with a potentially tempting entry-point into the Sony NEX e-system. The black NEX-5N with the 18-55mm kit lens and a $50 plastic B&H Photo gift card is offered for a new lower price, $470 with free shipping. The gift card is an actual plastic gift card that will be included automatically with your order by B&H. Since it is a normal plastic gift card, you can put it in a nice box and gift it during the holidays, or keep it as an emergency holiday gift (think "red sweater emergencies" - you buy someone a beautiful red sweater for the holidays and they show up wearing the very same red sweater - gift ruined, gifting emergency created!)
Staying with the NExies, the Sony NEX-6 with 16-50mm power zoom lens is in-stock at its normal price of $1,000 but B&H Photo will automatically include with your order a software box - the full version of Adobe Lightroom 4! No coupon code needed.
On the Sigma SLR lens front, available in the four main SLR mounts (C/N/A/P) is the Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 (not stabilized) for $695 and the BIGMA 50-500mm f4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM for $1300. You may have to add to cart to see the price!
Continuing from Black Friday are the Nikon V1 specials. For $300 with free shipping you can get the black Nikon V1 with 10-30mm. On the other hand, if you are ready for a bigger commitment to the Nikon CX system, B&H has a Nikon V1 super-bundle for $800.
Also continuing from the Black Friday specials is the black Panasonic LX5 for $250. The white LX5 sold-out and is marked as discontinued and can no longer be ordered.
Speaking of Panasonics, the GH2 body only remains at $500 at B&H, and if you click on the link right below the "Buy Together & Save", you can see options for adding Panasonic M43rds lenses to your order for a combined purchase instant savings discount.
Samsung NX users feeling ignored? Ignored no more with a Samsung NX20 w/18-55mm special. You pay $800 and you get the camera kit and also a $200 B&H Photo plastic card. Yes a two-hundred dollar plastic B&H gift card is included automatically by B&H Photo during this promotion.
What about the Android geek in you or your gift-giving circle? The 7-inch 32GB ASUS Google Nexus 7 tablet has dropped to $244 with free shipping and it is indeed in-stock as of the time of writing!
But you don't have to spend triple figures to join the holiday shopping fun! For just $20 with free shipping you can get the 32GB Transcend Class 10 SDHC memory card. This has no limits (within reason), so you can buy as many as you like/need.
If you need faster/professional memory cards of the SDHC and Compactflash variety, B&H Photo has you covered as well with Lexar Professional memory cards and Sandisk Extreme and Extreme Pro memory cards.
