No camera gear, but I did buy a HP touchsmart 11 laptop.  It was $269 at office depot.  It's no powerhouse, but it's convenient, and with windows 8, the touchscreen is nice.   It'll fit nicely into the camera bag too.
What I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.

I snapped up an EOS-M with 18-55 kit lens and the little 90EX flash, for $280 CAD + tax, albeit the white one - I wanted black or grey.

This is the lowest price I have ever seen on an EOS M kit + flash and the biggest sensor to have in that price range... just for casual pictures with friends and family.   :D

triggyman, where did you get that?, 280, I'd do one 2

I got it from Don's Photo, that was a web only offer and to avoid shipping & handling costs I opted for in-store pick-up. I expect to pick up the camera this Monday.


I can't seem to find it, I guess it gone, do you still have the link?

I ended up getting a 14mm Rokinon lens for $300 from B&H, and an 85mm 1.2 lens for $1600 from canon refurbished.  And now I'm staying far away from canonpricewatch.com until I recover.  I'm hoping next year will bring an updated 100-400mm lens.  Maybe for black friday next year.

Bought Adobe Premiere Elements 12 & Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 together for only $55.99 (it was on a "3 Hour Black Friday Steal") ... it's now installed for my son on the iMac.
Also bought a Nikon 18-140mm VR lens for $326 ... this will be my gift for my Bro-in-Law in Australia.

Could someone explain this black friday thing?
To the non Americans like me.
Must be something like a sale, US- nationwide.... every friday?
Thanks a lot!
US is a Capitalistic Society.
Thanksgiving Holiday which is always the last Thursday of November, creates a 4-day weekend for most and this weekend is approximately one month before Christmas Holiday (the LARGEST marketing and sales-of-merchandise event of the year).  The marketing people created Black Friday (keep sales numbers in the black, not in the red) on the Fri. after Thanksgiving (which many have off from work and are free to shop) as the Official Opening of the Christmas Buying Season. (No Christ in Christmas there).  Cyber Monday is the Monday after the weekend and again it is a trumped-up merchandising day that entices people to buy more products on Monday (which most people do not have off from work?..guess you are shopping at your employer's expense!).
It was ALL created by Republicans!  ::) ::)
Hope that helps explain.

Someone hacked a local business and compromised both of our credit cards, so they are cancelled.  I'm buying things the old fashioned way with cash. 
 
I am meeting a guy this morning to buy a Lee Big Stopper after he got two by ordering from different places and waiting for months.

Apparently 'tis the season for CC fraud.

My debit card got compromised in the last 8 hours.  Fortunately, the purchases were so uncharacteristic that they called me right away.  And sent a text. And called the other phone. And an e-mail. At least they're on top of things ;D

I bought a 6D kit for a backup body, net price around 1300.

But, overall I have been unimpressed with the lens sales around.  There were quite a few lenses I was looking to pickup and virtually none of them saw a big sale at any of the major camera stores.  The 24-70 II is one I've considered getting (though hesitant due to lack of IS, which is a significant negative for me), but even that the sales were worse during Black Friday than 2 weeks before!

I was able to get the Rokinon, but have been really wanting the 85 1.2L and I missed it when I got home from work....crazy bummed!

You mean 2?


Anyway, they did add savings on top of savings. For example the Sekonic L478D was already down from $399 to $329, and then they dropped it again to $289 for the weekend.


Personally, I picked up a pair of PW Plus X triggers for $50 off.


Then there was the EF 100-400 going for $1399...
Some cameras… With Canon written on them. Oh, and some lenses… Also with Canon written on them. Oh, and a shiny camera with Fuji written on it too...

Feel free to have a wander round my flickr
