Hunting bargains before Amazon Prime Day 2020, best deals photography
Waiting for Amazon Prime Day to arrive, which will be the next few days October 13 and 14We have a bridge ahead of us where businesses will surely reserve the best deals. We already anticipate that you will have timely information on that special event with the best offers in cameras, lenses, tripods, bags, flashes, memory cards, hard drives, etc., but for now we are left with the usual ones from our Hunting Bargains on Fridays with the best prices that can be found in the main e-commerce portals.
Offers in cameras
- As on other occasions, we started with a recommendation in the form of a full-format mirrorless. Specifically, the cheapest camera of this type that you can buy today. We talk about the Sony A7 that with a 28-70mm f / 3.5-5.6 OSS lens comes out for only 809 euros on Amazon. In addition, for a little more, 839.90 euros, at Fnac they add a gift bag and memory card.
- From the same brand but with another format and APS-C sensor we also have on offer the Sony A6000, with 16-50 mm objective, by 499 euros both on Amazon and El Corte Inglés.
- With the same type of sensor, the Fujfilm X-T4, the most advanced model of this house, still at a good price. Only the body and in silver color is even cheaper than last week: 1,530.65 euros at Amazon.
- Another good cropped sensor option is the Nikon Z50, an attractive mirrorless lens that with the Nikkor 16-50 mm DX VR lens continues at its lowest price to date: 850.99 euros on Amazon. In addition, in the official Nikonistas store the Nikon Z50 Vlogger Kit, which includes a camera and lens plus a microphone, a mini-tripod and a mounting plate for the set, is on sale for 899 euros.
- Another possibility could well be the Canon EOS M50, which in black, with the EF-M 15-45 mm IS STM lens, a bag and a memory card costs 599 euros at El Corte Inglés. In addition, you also have a pack that adds another lens (the EF-M 55-200mm IS STM) for 849.90 euros at Fnac.
- And similar to the previous one but with a somewhat more professional body (although without a visor included), we have a Canon EOS M6 in a kit that includes the versatile EF-M 18-150mm lens for 599 euros, almost 100 euros cheaper than last week at Amazon.
- Although the unknowns around Olympus remain, their cameras are still very interesting. So for another week we have to recommend the Olympus OM-D E-M1X, its most professional model, because it is at a bargain price: 1,999 euros at the official Olympus store.
- And for users much less professional, who want a small but attractive camera, we have the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III at a good price in two configurations: with a M.Zuiko 14-42 mm EZ lens, a bag and a memory card it costs only 499 euros in the official Olympus store; and if we only want the body, it is still for 405 euros on Amazon.
- Also, for tighter pockets, there is the previous model, the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II, in a kit with a double lens (14-42mm IIR and 40-150mm II), plus a bag and a tripod for only 479 euros at MediaMarkt.
- With the same type of Micro 4/3 sensor but a more street format, the Panasonic Lumix GX9 In black and with Lumix G Vario 12–32 mm optics, it costs 589.64 euros (cheaper than last week) on Amazon.
- And without a visor, we have a Canon EOS M200 with the EF 15-45mm f / 3.5-6.3 IS STM lens, a gift bag and memory card for 499 euros at Fnac.
- If you like this format but you do not have the budget, you also have the previous model, the Canon EOS M100, in black, with a leather case, a 16 Gbyte card and the EF-M 15-45mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM lens, for only 379 euros at El Corte Inglés.
- Of the same type (without small mirror without viewfinder) the Olympus Pen E-PL8 with the M.Zuiko 14-42mm EZ lens and in a beautiful color it is still at the almost irresistible price of 299 euros in the official Olympus store (a bargain).
- If you are a classic and prefer a DSLR, the Nikon D3100 with the Nikkor 18/55 mm lens it is still only 221.99 euros at Fnac; It is a somewhat old model and it comes from Hong Kong (so it will not have a Spanish guarantee), but, we insist, for that price you cannot ask for more.
- Also recommended last week, the Nikon D7200 with the AF-S DX 18-140mm VR lens it continues for only 839.99 euros at Fnac; Again, yes, it is from the same Chinese seller so it does not have a Spanish guarantee.
Offers on objectives
- We started the optics section with one for Canon R cameras (full format mirrorless). Its about Samyang AF 14mm F2.8 Canon RF and it is practically reduced to its minimum price: 589 euros on Amazon.
- And for mirrorless of the Fujifilm X system we have again the Fujinon XF35mm F2 R WR in silver for 385.96 euros, practically its minimum price this year, on Amazon.
- And for SLR cameras, specifically for Nikon, we repeat the recommendation from last week because it is still at a very good price: the Nikkor AF-S DX 18-200 VR II G ED for 329.99 euros. Of course, once again, Fnac sells it on its website through an external seller in Hong Kong, which means that it will not have a Spanish guarantee.
Offers on accessories
- We begin our section dedicated to accessories with a bag to carry a simple equipment to our outings. It’s about the Lowepro Torba Apex 140 AW Black and it is reduced to 40.99 euros on Amazon.
- And if a travel tripod is what you need, take a look at the Manfrotto Element Traveler Small (made of aluminum, with a ball joint and weighing only 1.15 kilos) which is at its lowest price on Amazon: 70.34 euros.
- If you need a cleaning kit for your equipment take a look at this Phottix camera and lens cleaning kit which is reduced at El Corte Inglés to only 1.92 euros.
- And one more week we include here the portable printer HP Sprocket 200 that in pearl color costs only 79.90 euros at El Corte Inglés.
- And we finally come to our section dedicated to memory that we begin, as almost always, with an SD. In this case a Transcend SDXC UHS-I Class 10, U3, V30 256 Gbytes (the same as last week but with double the capacity) which is for only 33.69 euros on Amazon.
- Same capacity but different format for this 256 Gbyte Transcend USD300S microSD Class 10, V30, A1 with SD adapter that only costs 31.32 euros at Amazon.
- Finally, our hard drive proposal is an external desktop one to save more information or make backup copies. It’s about a WD My Book 3.5 “, 6Tbyte USB 3.0 which costs 130.83 euros on Amazon.
