Deal of the Week: Canon 5D dSLR with 24-105mm f/4L IS Lens at Amazon

December 21, 2007

Ok, there are two ways for a dSLR Dad to look at it, but either way, this is a great deal. Amazon has the Canon EOS 5D with EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM Lens for $2606! That’s even $250 less than B&H Photo!

So let’s break this down. The Canon EOS 5D dSLR body currently costs $2155. However, the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM Lens costs $990. So this means that this 12 MegaPixel, Full-Frame dSLR package has a value of $538! That makes this Read the rest of this entry »

Deal of the Week Part2: Canon 30D dSLR for $800!

December 9, 2007

(Updated 12/10) As a follow up to yesterday’s post about the Canon IPF5000 17″ Printer for under $800, I have found another great deal for you dSLR Dad’s.

Amazon has the Canon EOS 30D dSLR (Body Only) for $799. That is $100 less than B&H Photo also has it for $799 (a common theme I’ve noticed this Holiday season). Now true, the Canon EOS 40D is a full model change from the 30D, but it’s still $400 more. For those of you dSLR Dad’s who were considering a Canon Digital Rebel XTi for Christmas, this would be a great step up in performance, durability, and resale value for just $250. You can buy it at either the dSLR Dad Amazon Storefront (post comments to let me know what you think of it) or at the regular Amazon site. As always, these links help to support this site. And I would like to thank all of you dSLR Dads who have done so this Holiday season. You have made it possible Read the rest of this entry »


Deal of the Week: Canon iPF5000 17″ Printer for under $800!

December 8, 2007

The Canon Imageprograf IPF5000 Printer was replaced by the $1,900 Imageprograf IPF5100 earlier this fall. Both printers are 17″ Wide, 12-Color Pigment Ink (archival quality around 200 years) that take both roll and sheet paper. It also has automatic switching of Black Inks between Gloss and Matte Paper.

What makes the IPF5000 such a great deal this week? Since Amazon has it priced at $790, it’s only a $100 more than the 13″ Canon Pro9500 Printer! You can buy it at either the dSLR Dad Amazon storefront (post comments to let me know what you think) or regular Amazon.  As always, these links help to support this site. And I would like to thank all of you who have done so this Holiday season. Read the rest of this entry »
