Yesterday Sony US launched their new deals on Camera and Lenses (full overview at Adorama and BHphoto).
Among those deals you get the A6000 dual kit with a new 450 rebate (on top of the older $250 rebate) and a $50 gift card at BHphoto.
Before you pick up the pitchforks, this A6000 is partially broken.
I decided to paint my Sony A6000 pink for fun.
That’s a 10% bonus in addition to the everyday 5% back you can earn on all purchases.
There is a special 15% back offer on Sony products at Amazon US (Click here to read the details).
If you're wondering about the rules of our accepting a composited image into our contest, it's simply a matter of taste, and if it's a well-done and artfully crafted composite, you bet we'll allow it!
His compelling image this month of a classic WWII-era fighter silhouetted against a pristine sky certainly captivated the judging panel here at IR, and we both thank and congratulate Bob on yet another well-deserved First Prize achievement in our contest!
