    Default Camera Gear - Deals and Discounts

    I thought this would be a good thread to start. I often come across good deals as I spend at least a couple hours a day browsing camera-related stuff, so it would be nice to have a single place for everyone to post any photography related deals as they come across them.

    To kick things off there is a great deal on the D7000 today:

    In case anyone is one the fence, Vistek has a 1-day deal today for the Nikon D7000 w/ 18-105VR lens kit, $1329.00.

    For Comparison:

    Memory Express: $1529.99
    The Camera Store: $1499.82

    Looks like we posted the deal at the same time haha.

    And yes, with the D7000 out now and the 60D not being much more competitive than 2.5 year old cameras, the price was destined to tank. Canon also has the 60D sandwiched between the T2i and T3i right now. The T3i is priced within $45.00 of the 60D, and the T2i within $150 of the 60D. There is way too much clutter around the $750-$900 price point for Canon IMO. Something's got to give. The prices are so close you'd be retarded not to just buy the best of the 3 if you were in the market.

    NCIX.com has 4-packs of Sanyo Eneloop NiMH batteries for $7.99 (usually about $20). Awesome rechargeable batteries for flashes & similar things. These are the 800 mAH ones not the 2000 mAH ones, but they're cheap.

    If you happen to come across any good prices on Wacom tablets, can you post it here? I'm gonna retire my old tablet with something newer. The Intuos is pretty sweet, but pretty expensive for something I don't use very frequently. However if there's a good deal on one....

    Sure, I will keep an eye out. I bought an Intuos 3 a few months before the Intuos 4's came out and I got a pretty hefty discount on it even just at Future Shop, if I recall. I don't use mine very often either, but when I do I'm sure glad I have it. Goring price right now for an Intuos "small" (4X6") seems to be $200.

    Lol, unfortunately I can't just research every piece of equipment people ask me to, I was thinking more along the lines of posting deals as I come across them, as I spend a lot of time every day looking.

    Memory Express has the 7D on sale right now for $1,469, which is actually cheaper than B&H's current "on sale" price in the states ($1499 USD). Canadians do pretty good on camera and lens pricing in general though, compared to the USA.

    The Camera Store: $1569.00
    Vistek: $1599.00

    If I recall, Memory Express had the 7D on for $1,2XX on boxing day, but I've never seen it that cheap again anywhere.

    Good idea for a thread.

    www.photoprice.ca, I like using this site to compare prices from different stores in Canada and US (vistek, b&hphoto, amazon, memory express, etc.)

    Looks like MemEx has a sale on the 7d body until tomorrow night, $230 off for $1469.

    The rumor mills are pretty quiet, but there are going to be lots of announcements, including camera bodies from various manufactures, in March & April this year. If the 5D III was coming out this month or next, though, I'd have expected to see more leaked specs and such. 2011 is supposed to be a pretty good year for bodies/lenses if all the major company's historical release dates, product cycles, etc. hold true as they usually do.

    Great idea for a thread, I've been wanting to get back into another camera after I sold my previous one and learn more. Been itching to find a deal lately, seems this is the thread to camp out in.

    Might as well, haha. The D7000 is so new and with no direct competition, I wouldn't expect it to be on sale too often. They can't drop the price of the D7000 too low either, or it will ruin sales of the D5100 being released this month or the next.

    Btw, MemExpress still have the beat by 10% promotion. So if MemExpress' price is still 1179.99 as posted above, you can try to go price beat the Vistek price by 10%....

    so comes out to 1099.99 x 0.9 = 989.99 + tax
