Amazon Announces ‘Prime Day’ with More Deals than Black Friday

Prime Day

Amazon has announced Prime Day, a one-day shopping event for Amazon Prime members that takes place next Wednesday, July 15.

Amazon says that it will offer more deals than Black Friday (and it always has a ton of great deals on Black Friday).

Obviously, this is a ploy to get more people to sign up for Amazon Prime memberships. That said, I’ve been an Amazon Prime member for years and have always been happy with my membership benefits.

Aside from the free 2-day shipping, Amazon Prime offers a ton of other benefits with free instant video, Prime music, photo storage and lots more.

I’ll post any great photography or video deals that I see next week on Prime Day.

Canon EOS M Listed as Discontinued

Discontinued EOS M

Adorama is the first retailer that I am aware of to list the Canon EOS M as discontinued. Searching for “EOS M” on Adorama’s site automatically directs you to a page containing discontinued items, and only displays used items. Additionally, the previous product listing for the EOS M now says “We are sorry, this item is no longer available.”

Perhaps the recent $299 fire sale for Canon EOS M kits depleted Adorama’s supply?

B&H and Amazon are currently back-ordered on this kit; however, you can still order at $299.

Additionally, the EOS M kit with 18-55mm lens for $349 is in stock at both B&H and Amazon.

If you have been thinking about picking up one of these very discounted prices, you may not have much time left to find one at all.
