Canon Lens Sale

NEW: Fuji Rebates.

DEAL: Nikon D3300 & 18-55mm VR P: $446.99! (gray-market)

DEAL: Zeiss 55mm f/1.8 for Sony: $699! (gray-market)

With the continued strength of the dollar versus the yen, gray-market deals like this continue to flourish.

Gray market means that this seller is importing these themselves and passing the direct prices on to you. They bypass the middleman — the camera company's USA office — and also bypass the USA office's markup and warranty. The gamble is that if anything goes wrong, the seller is offering its own warranty; Sony USA won't be there to help you.

For $100 to 200 off from the USA price, I'd definitely get either of these.

Everyone asks me how I light my product photos. I use a 1990s Novatron three-light kit.

Novatron doesn't make them like they used to, so here's the same thing, for even less money, from Adorama:

Adorama Strobe deal

Adorama Three Strobe Set.

Adorama has a $400 three-light strobe set, perfect for portraits and product photography.

It includes three monoblock strobe heads, three stands, and two umbrellas (the third strobe is used as a catchlight from the rear without needing an umbrella).

It also includes a big case about 37" long. The first 50 orders will get a free upgrade to a case with wheels; otherwise, the regular basic case isn't that exciting if you plan to have to haul it around.

These three strobes each plug in the wall with three power cords.

They each have an integral slave, so use your camera's pop-up or shoe-mounted flash on Manual to fire all the strobes together. Of course you can use additional wireless, radio and IR slaves if you like.

These strobes also operate on battery power if you want to buy additional battery packs, one for each strobe.

The strobes have variable power and modeling lights, and of course to conserve the batteries the modeling lights don't light on battery power.

Flash meters are nice, but I don't use one. Just shoot at about f/16 in manual exposure mode at your lowest ISO, look at your LCD, and adjust the aperture (or lights) to taste.
