The Canon G1 X has a price drop to $729 at B&H Photo. (Compare at $799.)
The G12 has dropped in price to $389 (from $419).
A $150 instant rebate is available for the Panasonic GH2. Better hurry though, it expires on July 14.
It looks like the Canon 5D Mark II has received a price drop of $120. The normal price at B&H is now $2079 (down from $2199). This is still a very competent camera and quite the bargain at this price. Check it out with the price drop here at B&H Photo.
Amazon has a good deal on the Transcend 32GB Class 10 SDHC card for $21.99 through July 24. I own a couple of these myself and have been happy with their performance. Check it out here on Amazon.
As hard as I have tried while shooting out hotel windows in Vegas, I have been unable to kill all the reflections from my room on the windows. Turning off all of the lights in the room won’t do the trick because exterior lighting spills into the room, thus creating reflections of ambient room light…
This smart little LenSkirt tool uses suction cups to attach to the window and has an adjustable opening for various lens sizes. It also folds down quite small for packing in your camera bag.
I haven’t tried one yet, but I may pick one up before my next trip to Vegas. Check out the examples here to see how well they kill ambient room lighting. They’re $49 and available via the LenSkirt website.
Kudos to Mitch over at Planet5D for turning me onto this one.
There are currently several rebates available for Nikon DSLR and lens packages, including the D800, D4 and D7000.
The Nikon D7000 is available with a $100 instant rebate as well as additional discounts on lenses such as the AF-S 55-300mm ($150 off), AF-S 18-200mm ($150 off), AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8G ($200 off) and AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G VR II ($200 off).
There’s a similar deal for the Nikon D800 and D800E. Clicking the “Buy Together and Save” link will let you bundle the 24-70mm or 70-200mm lenses with $200 for each lens. In addition, B&H currently is bundling free 77mm Tiffen UV and Circular Polarizer filters with the deal.
The exact same deal applies with the Nikon D4 as with the D800.
These instant rebates are set to expire on July 28, 2012.
