Canon 5D Mark II for $2279 – Deal Alert

Canon 5D Mark II Deal

Canon 5D Mark II Deal on has the Canon 5D Mark II in stock for $2279 with free shipping.  It’s $2499 at most other retailers right now – although B&H Photo is giving $500 worth of video production Red Giant software with the 5D Mark II at that price, which probably makes the B&H deal worth it if you are going to be doing any serious amount of video shooting with it.

The Canon PowerShot A495 is available as Amazon’s Gold Deal of the Day for $49 today only.

Here’s the direct link to Amazon’s listing.

Kingston Class 10 SDHC Memory Card

Amazon has dropped the price of the 16GB Kingston UltimateX 100x SDHC card to $19.99 in its Goldbox Deal of the Day.  This card is also a Class 10 card, so it should handle HD video capture for pretty much every HDSLR and HD camcorder out today.  (Learn more about SD card speeds and ratings.)

These are also eligible for free shipping if you spend over $25, which is a good enough reason to pick up a couple if you’re in need of more storage.
