Fuji Instant Rebates and Price Drops

fuji instant rebates february

Starting February 2, Fuji Instant Rebates will be available on several cameras, with outright price drops on the X-E1.  So, with that in mind, if you’ve been considering trying out the X Series, there couldn’t be a better time (financially speaking, that is).

Fuji Instant Rebates!

fuji instant rebates february

X-Pro1

Fuji’s current flagship gets a surprising $200 instant rebate, bringing the price down to just under $1000.  If you’ve been eyeing this beauty from afar like I have, now’s your Golden Opportunity, folks.  Why buy the X-Pro1?  A discreet (though not completely silent) shutter kicks off the list of features that make this a wonderful piece of equipment.  Want a hybrid viewfinder (both optical and electronic)?  The X-Pro1 has it.  Want an easy-to-compose double exposure setting?  The X-Pro1 has it.  Want mode dials and manual controls out the wazoo?  The X-Pro1 has them.  Want…

Well, you get the idea.  Definitely well worth the price.

Reg. Price: $1199.95 – $200 instant rebate = Final Price: $999.95

fuji instant rebates february

X-E1 zoom kit

Didn’t they just release this camera?  No, but thanks to its replacement model, this little beast gets the bulk of the savings, with a gigantic $400 off.  An excellent choice for those on a budget who don’t need a hybrid viewfinder, the X-E1 has acquired a reputation for creative control and image quality previously found only in top-of-the-line DSLRs.  You still get nifty features like double exposure, and Fuji’s patented X-Trans Sensor.  The kicker?  Even more features are available through firmware updates, like Focus Peaking for manual lenses.

Reg. Price: $1199.95 - $200 price drop - $200 instant rebate = Final Price: $799.95

X-E1 body

Speaking of those manual lenses, here’s a money-conscious idea:  buy the body only, do without auto focus, and adapt some third party lenses to your X-E1.  You’ll get a prosumer mirrorless camera with interchangeable lenses – all for the cost of a mere compact camera.

Reg. Price: $799.95 – $200 instant rebate = Final Price: $599.95

fuji instant rebates february

X-M1 zoom kit

Want to start shooting right away?  Don’t need a pesky EVF?  Fuji has you covered – by laying down even more instant rebates.  The X-M1 is in most respects very similar to the X-E1, but has a more compact design.  You can still swap out lenses, and you still get that lovely sensor that Fuji has been putting in all of their best cameras.  The result?  One heck of a good investment.

Reg. Price: $799.95 – $200 instant rebate = Final Price: $599.95

X-M1 body

What can be said about Fuji Instant Rebates other than that they’re done right, with just about every option covered?  You can also get the X-M1 without a kit lens, should you be the type to prefer crisp primes.  This cameras improved auto focus won’t come in handy if you use old manual lenses, but focus peaking will!  Still not convinced?  Look this price in the eye and tell me you don’t love it.

Reg. Price: $699.95 – $200 instant rebate = Final Price: $499.95

fuji instant rebates february

X-A1 zoom kit

Priced lower than the X-M1, the X-A1 seems to be a nearly-identical model, with the same controls and (as far as I can tell) the same image quality.  However, the X-A1 is an older model and may not have all the newest features you’ll see in the X-M1.

Reg. Price: $599.95 – $200 instant rebate = Final Price: $499.95

fuji instant rebates february

X20

Ah, there it is.  That camera that looks like the X100, but without the dizzying price tag.  It’s got some awesome features – a completely silent shutter, a hybrid viewfinder, a 28-112 mm optical zoom lens, and all the standard Fuji features.  How can it be so cheap?  A smaller sensor won’t make this the camera for everyone, but for those in need of a fun camera that does just about anything, this is the one.

Reg. Price: $599.95 – $100 instant rebate = Final Price: $499.95

fuji instant rebates february

XQ1

Point and shoots?  Fuji Instant Rebates cover those as well, with the ultra-slim X-Q1.  No-nonsense design (with an f/1.8 lens!!!) might have you fooled, but it’s not all business:  a dedicated WiFi button allows for instant uploading to other gizmos without the need for user names or passwords.

Reg. Price: $499.95 – $100 instant rebate = Final Price: $399.95

Toshiba FlashAir Deals with Olympus!

toshiba flashair deals

WiFi connectability has become a huge selling point for cameras this year, and a huge source of confusion for some consumers.  Because, while some cameras have it built in, others are compatible with a special card.  If you’ve been holding out due to that confusion, consider the Toshiba FlashAir card.

Toshiba FlashAir Deals with Olympus:
OI.Share for Eight Cameras

toshiba flashair deals

Today Olympus has released information detailing Toshiba FlashAir deals with an updated list for compatible cameras.  For those who are unfamiliar with the technology, the OI.Share (Olympus Image Share) app is available for iPhone and Android phones.  It allows users to wirelessly transmit images from the camera to their phone.  It also works as a camera remote, with full live view.  The card in question – the Toshiba FlashAir card – is an SDHC card with a built in wireless LAN, allowing your camera to have wireless connectability even if it isn’t built-in. Toshiba FlashAir deals can be had at your local authorized Olympus Dealer, where the cards are being sold for around $20 (or about half of what you pay online!)  Here are some of the camera that can use the FlashAir card.

Compatible Cameras

E-PL5

The Olympus E-PL5 is the lightest digital Pen yet, and it offers some impressive specs:  10 exposure modes, 23 scene modes, 35-point auto focus, 8 frames per second, and 16 megapixels.  Image quality is amazing, and the camera’s features off you professional performance in a lighter, more portable body.

XZ-2

Sporting a 13 megapixel 1/1.7″ sensor, an ISO range of 100-12800, and 35-point auto focus, 4x optical zoom, 7 exposure modes, and 16 scene modes, it’s not hard to see the benefits offered by the XZ-2.  Think of this camera as the top specs in a slim, fun-to-use body, with many of the key draws you’ve come to expect from Olympus, now paired with the Toshiba FlashAir.

XZ-10

Another compact camera sporting intense specs, the XZ-10 is a more pared-down version of the XZ-2.  Half the sensor size at the same 13 megapixels, the SZ-10 design smacks of point and shoot portability (and ease of use).

E-PM2

Another digital Pen that pushes the limits of pro specs in a compact body, the E-PM2 is the most balanced camera (between performance and cost) being paired with Toshiba FlashAir Deals.  The specs are the same as those of the E-PL5, but without a tilting LCD, and a lighter body (by about 33%).

TG-2

Olympus’s rough-and-tumble-ready point and shoot offers a 13 megapixel 1/2.3″ sensor, 5 frames per second, 25-100 35mm equivalent focal length, 4x optical zoom, a maximum aperture of f/2, and 7 exposure modes.

TG-830

A less-costly model still comparable to the TG-2, the 830 is a point and shoot designed to take abuse and great images.  Featuring improved resolution over  the TG-2, it has an f/3.9 aperture, and weighs less than it’s counterpart.  It is also waterproof, shockproof, freezeproof, dustproof, and crushproof.

toshiba flashair deals

SH-50

The enthusiast’s compact from Heaven, this baby offers creative control in a tiny package.  Manual focus, 5 exposure modes, optical image stabilization, 3 metering modes, and 17 scene modes have all your ambitions covered, making this an exceptional addition to the Toshiba FlashAir deals going on right now.

toshiba flashair deals

SZ-16

A boiled down, straight shooter in the same ballpark as the SH-50, the SZ-16 is a point and shoot among point and shoots.  Offering a lightweight compact design without many of the manual amenities offered in the SH-50, this camera is a standard gizmo for your pocket and any quick snaps you need.  Definitely not the most robust of Olympus’s lineup, but it shines in its intended role.

So there you go, folks.  Eight more cameras to consider before the full weight of the holiday are upon us, and eight more options that pair perfectly with the Toshiba FlashAir deals going on right now at an authorized Olympus dealer near you!

In New York for Christmas?  Give these guys a call.  They love to help photographers of all ages and skill levels.

Cheap Macro Lens: Magnify Your Savings

cheap macro lens for canon image

Cheap may be a bit of a misnomer here, but all of these suggestions guarantee results without robbing you blind.  It should be noted that some lenses – specifically the Canon lenses mentioned here – are by no means cheap, either in terms of build quality, or price.

These suggestions are also aimed at Canon users, because I recently helped a friend select a lens for his T3.  Some suggestions, like Sigma lenses, will hold up across the board.

Cheap Macro Lens Suggestions for Canon Photographers

cheap macro lens for canon image

Sigma 70-300 f/4-5.6 APO DG (~$210)

Okay, so you want a cheap macro lens?  They do exist.  You can buy one a Sigma 70-300 f/4-5.6 DG for around $144, but I wouldn’t suggest it.  Why?  Well, it’s achromatic, meaning that different colors have different focal lengths.  Contrast isn’t that great, and if you want to focus on two colors at once, god help you.

Luckily there is an alternative to this dilemma: upgrade to the better version from Sigma, the 70-300 f/4-5.6 APO DG for around $210.  I know…it’s $60 more expensive, but your photos will thank you.  I used to own this particular lens for Nikon, and it works wonders in its price range.  Still, you can do better.

Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 (~$420)

Another decently priced third-party lens, this sucker is ideal if you’re looking for an inexpensive all-purpose telephoto that can double as a macro machine.  Think of it as your standard kit lens, and then some for wildlife, nature, sports, and macro.  It won’t perform as well in low light, but most zooms don’t anyway.  And all of these uses packing into one cheap macro lens will cost you around $420.

Canon 60mm f/2.8 EF-S USM Macro (~$470)

For those wanting brand-name goods, and all the quality that goes along with it, look no further than the Canon 60 mm f/2.8 EF-S USM Macro.  Prices on this lens vary depending on age and seller.  Used ones might go from anywhere between $300-400, while brand new usually tops out at $470.  The fact that it is a prime will not be lost on users – image quality shows exactly where this camera stands in terms of cost-effectiveness.

Canon 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro (~$570)

Another excellent but not exactly cheap macro lens from Canon, this glass verges on expensive, but won’t leave you penniless.   It’s an old film lens that will still work on your digital Canon.  You can expect to pay more for it brand new, but the great thing about film lenses is, you can also find them online for dirt cheap…usually.

Keep in mind when shopping for a cheap macro lens that there are a lot of options out there.  While these are just my suggestions, I recommend doing your own research.  Beware that some manufacturers have old lenses floating around out there that will not work (or might even damage) your DSLR.  It’s best to do some research first, or better yet, speak to someone at your local camera store who can help guide you in the right direction.  And if you really, really want that cheap cheap CHEAP Sigma 70-300 f4-5.6 DG at $144, I know these guys have it in stock.

Just remember that paying for pro glass is never a truly bad idea, and that better image quality is always a wise investment.
