As the holiday season comes to a close, so do retailer sales. B&H and Canon are wrapping up a large sale on DSLRs and lenses tomorrow (04/01/2013), here I’ve highlighted the most popular and significant DSLR/lens combos in the sale for filmmakers.
The rebate price (in red) is what’s advertised on the B&H website, the checkout discount (black) is what you get when you add any item to cart. This is an additional discount on top of the initial rebate and is listed like this due to items having a MAP (Minimum Advertised Price).
On Friday we posted an article about the current B&H holiday deals; it appears the Canon 24-70mm mark ii can actually be purchased for much less than originally posted. Thanks to Canon Rumors for pointing this out.
The Lens is listed as $2299.00, but when you add to cart there’s a new list price of $2099. Add to this, Canon’s $300 mail-in rebate and the lens drops to $1799.00.
One could certainly argue about which DSLRs are best for video, but it’s a fact that these three are the most popular and still valid choices in 2013. This makes today’s big discount on these cameras at B&H a very welcome one.
These after cart checkout deals will show up once you start the payment process.
[UPDATE]: B&H has now also added a deal for the Canon EOS 6D. The 6D has some aliasing issues but does have a large sensor just like the 5D if that look is what you’re into:
(Note: The offers end on October 26th)
First off, sorry for the Canon-heavy news posts lately, but they seem to be extremely busy right now with constant new product announcements and significant offers that are too good to miss – no summer break for Canon I guess, as opposed to the other manufacturers?
EOS-M with the quite decent 22mm f/2 pancake lens make it a tiny package with a big sensor … and the price ain’t too shabby either now (finally!)
The Canon C300 has just been significantly reduced in price. B&H sent out a notice announcing a $2000 pricedrop.
Even though there is competition for the C300 with the introduction of the C500 and low priced C100 the C300 fills an important slot with its internal All-I codec and SDI connection possibilities.
There’s more competition from Sony with their new PMW-F5 model that’s already in stock.
Both the PL version as well as the EF version of the EOS C300 are now $2000 off and available at B&H with 0% financing.
That makes the C300 priced at $13,999 right now.
The 25p firmware rumored this week is a reality, but it won’t be coming before April.
The 1DC is causing a lot of buzz on the net due the nice videos coming from the camera both in 4K as well as in super35 crop mode.
With 25p this camera will be one hard to beat rival in the affordable large sensor camera market.
We’ll have more footage to show soon.
We also have a very intriguing deal for our European readers:
If you’re looking for the best price here’s a code that gives you the 1DC at an unrivalled 8250€
