Tamron lens mail-in rebates

Amazon has a number of mail-in rebates for a variety of Tamron lenses for the Nikon, Canon and Pentax lenses.

The rebates range from $10 to $90 per lens, and the amount depends on which lens you are getting. This includes both the new Di-II digital lenses and also the traditional 35mm full frame lenses.

The list is long, it includes the popular superzooms, along with the affordable serious lenses that keep 3rd party lens manufacturers in business.

Sandisk memory card specials at Adorama

Adorama has some great specials on Sandisk memory cards for those who want to take advantage of the gift-card-rebate program! Here are some examples:

  • 16gb Sandisk CF card for $25 after mail-in rebate. Buy two cards, and save more. Buy three cards, and pay an effective after rebate price of $15 per card.
  • 8gb SDHC card for $18 after rebate for one card, and $13 per card after rebate if you buy three cards.


In other words, this is a buy more to save more type of a program, which is great if you are looking to buy more than one memory card, and you don't object to mail-in programs.

Please note that if you are planning to do this, be sure to read the terms and conditions of the rebate program, pay attention to the program dates, follow the instructions, and make a copy of everything you submit.

Please note the rebate arrives as a pre-paid Visa gift card, not as a check. This means you cannot (obviously) deposit it in your bank, but you can use it to pay for things the same way you use a Visa (gift) card.

New DSLR specials from Ritz, Wolf and Camera World

Nothing is hotter than a brand new DSLR for high-tech photographers! And Ritz and Wolf Camera have two of the newest ones!

First up, the Nikon D90 with the 18-105 DX VR lens going for $1300. This is shipping, not a pre-order. The D90 as you may have heard has video and it is the first digital SLR to have a functional video capture mode. Great news if you like to take videos as well, and do not want to carry two devices with you.



But Canon won't stay quiet, they have announced their own mid-range DSLR, this one is available for pre-order for $1400 for body only.

And for Sony fans, the brand new Alpha A900 is available for pre-ordering at the price of $3000!

J&R World has a new wave of specials for us all, so let's take a look!

We start with the cutesy blue Canon SD1100 IS going for $175. This is a new model and has IS (image stabilization) which is a good thing.

For those who don't object to an older camera but want to have a 3" LCD, and don't need an optical viewfinder, and want to pay a low price, we have an option, the Canon SD750 for $170!

And while we are talking J&R World, they have starting taking pre-orders for the new Apple iPod line up. If of course you are a fan of the iPods, because not everyone is :-)

Camera and photo sales right now

At Amazon, let's take a quick look! Hide your wallets!

If you like a hybrid camera/camcorder, then you can get the blue Sanyo VPC E2 for $360 with free shipping and handling. This has 8-megapixels on the digital camera side, and AVC/H.264 video at 640x480 60fps.

The brand new Canon A1000 IS has started shipping for the price of $200, with free S&H. This is a new model and uses a 10-megapixel 1/2.33" sensor with a 4x optical zoom lens. But gone are the manual controls that made the A-series famous, so this camera is more for beginners and intermediate digicams users.

Red red camera! At $100, the red Samsung S73 can be yours for $100, with free shipping. The sensor is 7mp, and it has a 3x optical zoom lens.

And if you love a stylish camera, the black Sony T70 is all yours for $236 with free shipping via OneCall at Amazon. There are obviously new Cybershots announced, which is why the price of the T70 is dropping, thus making it a better deal for you and me!

The Canon 50D body only DSLR is now accepting preorders at Amazon. The price is $1400 but with free shipping. It comes with Amazon's pre-order and 30-day post-order price guarantee, so if the price drops during that period, you can request a refund of the difference which Amazon usually processes real fast.

Do note that the price guarantees are only for items sold and shipped by Amazon itself. Amazon has a lot of 3rd party retailers featured along with the Marketplace and Auctions, and the specials don't apply to those!

Shopping at nite in the Amazon cyber river

We start with the orange-copper Kodak M753 for $100.

Next we have a price drop on the Pentax A40. This 12-megapixel Optio goes for about $225, less than $20 per megapixel :-)

Note that this is an "older" camera, but it has sensor shift stabilization, so you can have a couple of stops advantage with most of the Sony, Minolta and Alpha lenses mounted on this. Along with 3rd party lenses of course.
