‘Tis the season folks.  We’re barely into our Thanksgiving leftovers and Christmas is looming large.  The shopping season is in full swing, and as luck would have it, there are some PHENOMENAL DEALS to be had on some equally phenomenal cameras – even some of the newest releases.  Some of the things that factored into our picks were Image Quality, Video Quality, Build Quality, Handling, Ease of Use and whether or not the camera is equipped with Wi-Fi, which we believe is becoming a “must have” feature on the Hybrid Camera of today.  With that in mind… Here are Our [More]
You can now get your hands on 2 of the best cameras of the last year at a significant discount.  Fujifilm have slashed the prices of their X-Series cameras by $200, so you can now get the Fuji X-Pro 1 Body for only $1,199 USD, and the Fuji X-E1 Body is now selling for only $799 USD on Amazon.  These cameras are a still shooters dream and Fuji’s X-Trans Sensors produce some of the best image quality in the business. Buy the Fuji X-Pro 1 Body or the Fuji X-E1 Body on Amazon Here (camera comparison above courtesy of PhotoNewsReviews)
Summer is fast approaching, new camera releases are coming with greater frequency, and two of the most celebrated cameras of the last year are scheduled for an update.  Consequently, you can now save yourself a few bucks on the Olympus OM-D E-M5 and the Sony NEX 7, both of which are now listed for less than $950 USD (Body Only) on Amazon. The updated versions are sure to incorporate a number of tasty new features, but those who are looking for for a great deal on an outstanding camera should keep their eyes on these two. Buy the Olympus OM-D [More]
I’ve been trying to spread the love around with featured camera deals and stories, etc.  But honest to God, Panasonic have been offering such HUGE DEALS on some great cameras lately (I actually just received my Lumix LX7 that I snapped up for only $298 USD!) and they’re just too good to not share with our readers, especially considering that many of these deals are gone as soon as we can post them. Here are 3 deals I came across on the Lumix GX1, a tremendous camera that sold for anywhere from $700 to $900 USD just a scant year [More]
Two great deals to share today! First up, Amazon is offering the Panasonic Lumix G5 with the 14-42mm kit lens bundled with 45-150 power zoom lens (the video above shows the Panasonic G5 paired with the 45-150mm lens).  This is a great deal that we’ve seen on and off over the past few days, but it usually sells out fast. Buy the Panasonic Lumix G5 and Two Lens Bundle Here                   Next up, Amazon are also offering $100 off one of the best cameras to be released in the last several years, [More]
Update…  Amazon have now lowered the price even more and the LX7 is now only $298 USD! Amazon now has the Panasonic Lumix LX7 on special for $329 $298USD.  This is an incredible deal on one of the best compact cameras around.  This little guy is packed with performance and features that let it easy trade shots with more expensive cameras like the Sony RX100, and it’s 24-90mm 1.7-2.3 Leica Summilux lens is the best, fastest and brightest that you’ll find on any compact in it’s class, hands down.  In fact, this lens performs so well in macro mode that [More]
Amazon is running some HUGE DEALS right now on 2 of our favorite cameras. First up, the Panasonic Lumix LX7 is on sale for only $298 USD.  The LX7 is equipped with a great 10mp sensor, but where the LX7 really shines is the bright, fast Leica branded lens attached to the front.  This is one of, if not THE best lens ever attached to a compact camera.  It’s f/1.4 at it’s widest and it’s macro capabilities are so good that some of my colleagues are actually purchasing LX7s instead of getting an actual macro lens, which costs several hundred [More]
There’s some Smoking Hot Deals on 3 of our favorite Panasonic Lumix Cameras on amazon right now!  There have been rumors that a new GX model will be launched soon, but I’ve heard that before and there’s nothing definite on that as of yet.  There should also be a new G series camera (G6) launched later this year, but the prices listed below are incredible and all three cameras are excellent, highly recommended, and rank on our list of top 10 mirrorless camera systems.  If you’re interested, I would pull the trigger soon because as always, there’s no telling how [More]
B&H is now running an incredible deal on the Sigma 19mm and 30mm f/2.6 lenses.  They usually sell for $199 USD each, but now you can get BOTH lenses for the same $199. You can get these lenses for either Sony NEX Cameras (E-Mount) or for Micro 4/3 Cameras. I recently purchased the Sigma 30mm and have been putting it through it’s paces on my Panasonic G5 (which is now on sale for $599 w kit lens on Amazon), and I’m very impressed with how well this lens performs.  It’s a great deal at the regular price, so if you’re [More]
Just a quick heads up…  I just noticed that the Panasonic Lumix G5 WITH the kit lens is selling for $499 on Amazon.  The $499 USD price will show once you get it in your cart. Amazon is showing that there are only 4 left (at the time of this posting), so I don’t know how long this will last.  I personally have one of these and recommend it very highly. This is a phenomenal deal, so if you want one, I suggest moving fast. Get the Panasonic Lumix G5 Here
Amazon is running some GREAT LIGHTNING DEALS today on Panasonic Cameras! There’s a new deal every hour, and right now the Panasonic G5 is selling for only $399! (but only for the next 3 hours, so if you want one, you’d better move fast) I’m personally shooting with a G5 now and highly recommend it. Check out the deals NOW!
Update:  OK gang…  The deals listed below were one day only, but Amazon now has the G5 for only $499 Body Only, or $599 with a Kit Lens, and the Panasonic Lumix GH2 is also only $499 Body Only, also on Amazon.  These are both GREAT DEALS and you can’t go wrong either way.  If you’re having trouble choosing between these two phenomenal cameras >>Click Here<< —————————————————————————————————— OK Gang, it looks like the deals are coming fast and furious, just in time for Christmas! You can now get the Panasonic G5 with Lens for only $499 USD, and the Panasonic LX7 [More]
Just in time for Christmas!  Olympus has reduced the prices of some of their most popular micro 4/3 cameras.  You can now save $50.00 on the flagship OM-D E-M5 and $100 on the new PEN Lite E-PL5 and PEN Mini E-PM2.  The latter two cameras share the same sensor and image processor as the highly celebrated OM-D, so you can expect to get incredible quality stills photos and videos from these cameras. We don’t know how long this price drop will be in effect, but if you’re seriously considering any of these cameras, this is a phenomenal deal and we [More]
Rode Microphones is running a deal through December 31st, 2012 – when you buy a Rode Videomic Pro or Rode Stereo Videomic Pro, you’ll get a free copy of Pluraleyes 3 Audio Syncing Software (a $199 USD Value!).  This takes some of the hassle out of post production, especially for those who use a separate audio recorder (like a Zoom H4N) to get better sound for their video productions.                   To take advantage of this offer… >>CLICK HERE to get a Rode Videomic Pro (plus bonus Sennheiser Headphones)<<   or   >>CLICK [More]
(Video above from Daniel K – shot with a Panasonic Lumix GH2 and the 20mm F1.7 Pancake Lens) (Hat Tip to 43Rumors) Looks like Amazon has a discount going on right now for one of the lenses that we at MC consider an “Essential Micro 4/3 Lens” – the Panasonic 20mm F1.7 Pancake Lens. The Panasonic 20 1.7 lens is bright and fast, especially for a pancake lens.  It will allow you to achieve shallow depth of field (so you can get those creamy blurred backgrounds that everyone loves) and because of it’s small size, it’s GREAT for street photography/videography [More]
