The Nikon D600 is now available with a $100 instant rebate. That makes the D600 body only $1996 and the D600 w/ 24-85mm lens only $2496. B&H is also bundling these reduced D600’s with a Lowepro camera bag, 16GB SanDisk Extreme Pro SD card and spare battery. Check them out here at B&H Photo.
A little late to the game, but there’s a couple hours left to grab this deal of the day from Amazon on SanDisk memory cards at up to 70% off.
As of today, the only camera to support the XQD memory card format is the Nikon D4. And while it is a great camera, no doubt, the single high-end model is not enough to push the demand in the market towards XQD as “the other memory card.”
CFast2.0 is a specification from the CompactFlash Association, which also designates the specification for current CF cards and the newer XQD cards. CFast2.0 specs offer a theoretical performance up to 600MB/s data transfer speeds.
SanDisk is currently sampling new CFast2.0 cards to camera manufacturers to see if they will bite on the new specification in spite of the overwhelming move toward the SD card standard. Medium format camera maker Phase One has already committed to putting the CFast2.0 cards to work in new cameras due to the higher performance over other card formats.
Amazon has SanDisk memory at up to 60% off today as its Deal of the Day. You can get a SanDisk 32GB Class 10 SDHC card for $19.99. Or you can get a a SanDisk 64GB Class 10 SDXC card for $44.99 (note that B&H also has the 64GB cards at this price with free shipping).
There are also deals for today only on SSD drives, microSDHC cards and flash drives. More details on those deals here at Amazon.
B&H Photo currently has discounts on several SanDisk CF and SD cards – some with significant savings. I’m told this is a limited time deal but I don’t know exactly when the discounts will be pulled. Check out the full list of products here at B&H Photo.
