Mega Deal! $8,500 OFF this Hasselblad HV DSLE & Zeiss Lens

Screen Shot 2015-11-16 at 7.16.17 AM

UPDATE! Supplies did not last too long after I posted this. Looks like they are now sold out but yea, this was actually a great buy!

Take a look at this! As we know, Hasselblad is clearing out the Stellar camera with gobs of cash off and have been for a while now. I even bought one a while back and wrote about it HERE. Well, now the Sony A99 version, the Hasselblad HV is being cleared out at $8500 off, yes, over EIGHT Grand off!

The normal price for this camera was $11,995.00 and while yes, it is a Sony A99 in a fancy Hasselblad shell, it does look quite nice and at the price of $3495 you now get a fantastic full frame DSLR, a great Zeiss 24-70 and the Haselblad version. In fact, the Sony A99 IS $1,998.00 on its own, body only. Add in the Zeiss lens and now this Hasselblad version comes in for LESS than the Sony Version. Not bad at all considering the HV is heralded as being “Tough as Nails”.

Now you can get the HV body and 24-70 f/2.8 Zeiss ZA Lens (This is a $2k lens) for $3,495.00.  Less than the Sony A99 and Zeiss 24-70 ZA.

B&H is blowing out the HV set while supplies last HERE

The Sony RX1R II Now Up For Pre-Order! Ships Nov 25th! 

Screen Shot 2015-11-06 at 9.07.41 AM

The LONG Awaited successor to the Sony RX1 and RX1R is now ready and available for pre order at B&H Photo HERE! The camera will start shipping November 25th (just a couple weeks) and as always with Pre Orders, 1st come, 1st serve. I always pre order cameras I am excited about because A: I can change my mind before it ships..B: I am not charged until it ships and C: I will be among the 1st to get it!

Even today there is not much that can reach the RX1R for beautiful image quality. The lens, the sensor..had something special about it, even today. The only issue today with the RX1 Mark 1 is the AF was slower than most had hoped for. With the RX1RII sony sped up the AF, added a nice pop up EVF, a new 42 MP sensor and believe me, this guy is SMALL, much smaller than an A7 series body.

In all honesty, probably my favorite Sony camera ever is the RX1 and RX1R for its amazing low light abilities, organic quality of the files and the small take anywhere size.

If YOU are one who has been waiting for this one, go get it now at B&H Photo HERE!

The Leica M 60 Special Edition. Now $2200 OFF!

THE LEICA M60 – $2200 OFF. Now $16,280 with the special stainless steel 35 1.4 Summilux FLE. Previous price was $18,500. So if you have been lusting after this one of a kind digital M 240 without an LCD, without any special modes, without a JPEG mode, and with a unique design, NOW is the time to get one. Yes, it’s a bank account buster but there are many out there that want this (I know, I spoke with quite a few of you). It will not get any cheaper than this for a new in box M60 edition!

Buy it HERE at B&H Photo. 

“Blending a minimalist approach to digital imaging, the Edition “Leica 60″ of the Leica M (Typ 240) is a digital full-frame rangefinder camera designed with an emphasis on the four basic elements of photography: shutter speed, aperture, ISO, and focus. With each of these controls manually adjustable, the Edition 60 omits digitally-conventional elements of design for a pared-down approach to shooting. No rear LCD monitor and no menu system avail a clear and direct method of working, with the only means of recording being an uncompressed DNG raw still image file. Offered in a special limited edition of only 600 units, and paired with a unique Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 ASPH lens, custom camera cover, and a handmade presentation box, the Leica Edition 60 serves as an apt summation of the founding principles of the Leica M system, and the basic elements of photography as well.”

Holy Fire Sale! Hasselblad Lunar, $5,500 OFF..

1134591

B&H Photo has the $7000 Hasselblad Lunar that failed miserably on fire sale for $5,500 off. Now $1495 for the Hot Rodded Muscle Carred Sony NEX-7 and a kit 18-55 Zoom. THIS camera was a rip off at $7000, and I stated so a few times here on these pages. Even at $1500 it is pushing it as it is indeed a Sony NEX-7 with a hot rod build/design, pure luxury. Comes with a fancy wood box, and all the goodies. I did see these in person a while ago and they are bulkier than a NEX-7 but very unique.

If you want a Sony NEX-7 in this Hasselblad version NOW is the time to jump. How often do we see $5,500 off? I feel bad for the few who paid $7000 though I feel there are not many at all, but I feel happy for those who wanted to purchase one “just because” as now you can save a bundle. If it were $999 it would be better but even at $1500, it is not THAT far out there anymore. Yea, it’s a NEX-7, yea it’s old tech but I do not think you will buy this for the tech ;) A NEX-7 these days with the same kit zoom is under $500.  So no more $6500 premium, now it’s a $1000 premium!

You can grab this fire sale HERE at B&H Photo. They have the black and the brown in stock!

My Favorite Camera Shops & Dealers. Ever.

There are so many camera shops, store, internet sites and dealers out there ready to take our cash and send us a new fresh box of happiness. If you are like me, receiving a new package from the Fed Ex or UPS man brings  not only a smile, but a rush of energy, happiness and joy.

I love my cameras and over the last 20 years I have learned WHERE To buy from to get the most hassle free and enjoyable experience, as well as the best deals sometimes.

I always get e-mails asking me “where should I buy XXX camera”? Well, here you go. These shops are also site sponsors because I accepted them as sponsors (I turn down many every year). 

Over the years I have recommended the same dealers here. Those that I have worked with and bought from on many occasions. I have shopped from a few other sources but sometimes have had a negative experience so this is why I only recommend those who I trust and those who have really went above and beyond. I only allow advertisers and sponsors whom I trust and support back and know would never rip anyone off.

Look what the USPS man drug in..direct from Ken Hansen. The Leica Monochrom in silver chrome and the new M-P in black. 

DSC02764

Below is a list of whom I buy from, who I have had great experiences with and all of those that I trust and put my name behind when it comes to camera dealers and shops!

1. Ken Hansen – This guy is everything LEICA. He has been a Leica dealer forever and used to own a store in NY. He now works from his home as he is semi-retired but his Leica business is still going strong with many Leica shooters praising his name every day. Ken has become a legend..legendary. I have never in my life experienced anything like Ken from ANY shop, dealer or store, ever. He goes above and beyond and the funny thing is he does not even have a web site, a Facebook or twitter ;) He runs it all from his home via phone or e-mail. He has been with me since day one and you may have seen his ad in the sidebar before. It will be there for the life of the site because if it not for Ken (and a couple of other friends) this site may not have made it!

Ken has new Leica and often times has used items and unique items as well. Just call him at 212-879-3263 or send him an e-mail at [email protected] and let him know what you want, need or are looking for. Most likely, he will have it. Plus, mention my name and you may get a bit of a deal..maybe. I stand 100% behind Ken Hansen.

2. B&H PhotoThese guys are the king of Retail and Online sales. They do MASSIVE volume. I mean MASSIVE. I have been to the store and it is a sight to see. Hundreds of customers at any given time, long lines to check out (but they go fast) and conveyer belts that travel through the store to deliver your goods when you exit. Amazing. They have the best online experience I have encountered. First, if an item is in stock and ready to ship, it says so clearly. If it is not, it clearly states this. No guessing games. They ship same day as well if you order before a certain cut off time. So technically you could order a lens on a Monday morning and have it arrive Tuesday. They also are top notch on their returns, undo nay to Amazon. It is an online automated process, never needing to email someone or call someone for an RA number. B&H Is the king of camera retailers. You can see their site here and they sell all kinds of goodies, not just photo related. They are sort of a giant electronics megastore. I give them a 100%!

3. Amazon Who does not shop from Amazon? Myself and everyone I know shop at Amazon and they are doing amazing things..amazing. Amazon is the future of internet shopping, food shopping and everything in between. I believe in 10 years Amazon will have the most amazing services. You can get anything and everything from Amazon. I have certain household items get delivered every month using their subscribe and save feature and I also buy tons of music (LP’s) and camera accessories such as Gariz cases, caps, batteries, lights, etc. They have anything and everything. Click here for a link to Amazon and see for yourself. Never an issue with them, ever! The return policy and process is painless and simple. You even get a label to print for easy return. My score = 100%!

4.. PopFlash.com PopFlash has been around for a long long time and Tony Rose is the man who owns and runs it. He is well-known among Leica shooters but he also sells Fuji, Olympus, Zeiss and many other brands at his online shop. I have purchased Leica lenses, cameras and Artisan and Artist bags and cases from PopFlash and Tony always comes through. They have some superb prices as well and when you see the “used/mint” pricing on some Leica items you may be super tempted to go for it. Check out the site at PopFlash.com! 100%

5. CAMERAQUEST – Run by Stephen Gandy this long time Voigtlander dealer has just about anything you could ever want from the brand. There are a few Voigtlander lenses that stick out to me and some I like better than Leica glass! The 35 1.2 II, the 15 4.5, the 50 1.5 Nokton, all superb and all a fraction of the cost of a Leica lens. If you want a great buy and fast shipping on Voigtlander lenses then you must check out CAMERAQUEST! 100%! Check out the shopping site HERE!

So there you go, my fave dealers and vendors. When you want to buy a camera or lens or accessory or ANYTHING, check them out! They are what help to keep this site running!

The A7II with 28-70 Kit Lens is IN STOCK now at B&H Photo for immediate shipping! They do not have the body only (sold out) but the body with the kit lens is available right now. I have been shooting with the A7II for over a week now and while I do not want to put out a spoiler for  my upcoming review, believe me when I say it is a camera that punches way above its price point. I ordered one for myself after a few hours with the review sample. The A7II and A7s combo, for me, is as good as it gets in 2014 for IQ, versatility, and capabilities.

Order the IN STOCK Sony A7II with 28-70 kit zoom HERE at B&H Photo NOW!
