Henry’s Canada: Save Up To $1000 On Nikon Lenses

Henrys Canada: Save Up To $1000 On Nikon Lenses

Henry’s is having a sale on Nikon lenses and you can enjoy some big savings – as much as $1000 on the pricier lenses.

I am in the market for a new Nikon DSLR, so I’ve been watching the sales. One item I can’t live without with my camera is a telephoto lens. With my boys in sports, a telephoto lens helps me capture that perfect shot – the determination on their face, the speed of their feet, the perfect kick. But, lenses can be mega expensive, so a sale is must-have before you put down your hard-earned money on an item that could be seen as frivolous or not necessary (although it is to me!).

I could save $100 on this Nikon AF-S DX 55-300MM VR 4.5-5.6G ED 2197. Did you get all that? Basically, this is a super telephoto lens, with vibration reduction and so much more. The reviewers give it a 4.8 out of 5, which is really good. It was $430.01, now $329.99.

If you are a professional and want the big guns, this Nikon AF-S 600MM 4.0 VR II ED 2173 is $1000 off! Regularly $10,800.08, you’ll pay just $9,799.99 instead.

If you spend over $99, and with this sale, you most likely will, you’ll get free shipping too.

Staples Canada Printables: $25 – $75 Off During 5 Days Of Great Deals

Posted by on March 24, 2014 at 8:30 PM

Staples Canada Printables: $25   $75 Off During 5 Days Of Great Deals

Starting March 25th 2014, you can present a different Staples printable coupon in-stores to save up to $75 on items like camcorders, cameras, hard drives, monitors, tablets, laptops and desktop computers.

Valid for only one day each, here are the different deals you can take advantage of with the Staples coupon:

  • Tuesday, March 25th 2014: $25 off any camera or camcorder $99+
  • Wednesday, March 26th 2014: $30 off any hard drive $100+
  • Thursday, March 27th 2014: $50 off any computer monitor $149+
  • Friday, March 28th 2014: $50 off any tablet $299+
  • Saturday, March 29th 2014: $75 off any laptop or desktop computer $599+

As I’m due to give birth soon, I have been planning to add a whole bunch of feel-good movies onto a hard drive to potentially distract myself and hubby with at the hospital. Whether we’ll actually get to watch them is something I’ll have to update you moosers on later, but in the meantime that’s the plan, with the only problem being that I’m in need of a new external hard drive. So I’ll probably be using the Wednesday coupon to save $30 on the Western Digital 4TB USB 3.0 My Book external hard drive priced at $189.99. Although it’s $171.24 at both Best Buy and Future Shop, with the coupon, it comes down to just $159.99 at Staples.

In any case, there is definitely no shortage of stock to choose from; just make sure to carefully price compare with all of the other major stores first!

Canon Canada: EOS Rebel T3 Only $300

Posted by on March 17, 2014 at 11:30 AM

Canon Canada: EOS Rebel T3 Only $300

Get the Canon EOS Rebel T3 18-55 IS in black for only $299 because it has a damaged box. Price comparing, this item was $379.98 at Walmart and Amazon and $389.98 at Best BuyYou are saving yourself at least $80 because of a box.

I’m considering getting myself a new camera to replace my 8-year-old DSLR. I don’t know if this is the one, although I have a time goal as I’m taking a trip next month and really want a new DSLR. I’m usually partial to Nikon, but this deal is almost too good to pass up! This has everything I need like a 12.2 megapixel CMOS image sensor and a 63-zone, dual-lyaer metering system for the richest and most detailed photos. It also has HD video recording, which is very handy to have included.

I found a number of reviews online and found this camera to be likeable. It is light and easy to use and a good camera for the beginner photographer. This would make a sweet graduation gift for a high school or post-secondary student. It isn’t a car, but it is a $300 gift from the heart that you know they can use in this photo-heavy world!

This item will ship for free as Canon offers free shipping on orders over $15.

The Source Canada: Save Up To $230 On Canon DSLRs

Get up to $230 off Canon DSLR cameras at The Source.

I am in need of a new DSLR camera as mine is eight years old and getting a little worn out. Technology moves so fast, the cameras out now are so much better than they were even just that eight short years ago. I am actually in the market for a Nikon, as I already have extra lenses and such for Nikon, so this sale doesn’t help me, but Canon is a superb brand and worthy of a look.

The best deal for this sale is this Canon EOS Rebel T3 18-55 IS kit with 12.2 MP, which is now $407.96, was $649.99. Reviews are varied, but it got a 3.8 star rating out of 5.

Going up a notch, this Canon EOS T5i 18MP DSLR camera with 18-55 IS STM lens kit is $150 off from $879.99, now $729.99. It lets you shoot like a pro, even if you are a beginner.

If you want a good mid-range camera with fantastic reviews, this Canon EOS T3i 18.8MP camera with 18-55mm lens kit is $60 off, bringing the total down to $539.99, was $599.99.

Get free shipping to your door on orders over $20, which means these cameras would ship free.

Future Shop Canada: Canon PowerShot 16.1MP $70 (Save $46)

Posted by on January 1, 2014 at 10:00 AM

Future Shop Canada: Canon PowerShot 16.1MP $70 (Save $46)

Future Shop Canada is offering a sweet deal on a Canon PowerShot 16.1MP 5X Optical Zoom Digital Camera (A2500) – Black. Originally $115.99, the camera is now on sale for $69.99!

I price compared with Best Buy Canada and they have the same camera listed at $99.99. I could not find this model number many places but similar models were priced upwards of $100.

The Canon boasts a 2.7″ LCD screen, lightweight design, DIGIC 4 image processor and a 16.0MP CCD sensor. It includes a 24 mm wide-angle lens with 5x optical zoom. With plenty of bonus features, this camera is a great buy at this price. These cameras are also a great buy because they are small, durable, affordable, and perfect for sharing. Whereas I would not give my iPhone to someone to take a picture of me (and risk $600 worth), I would gladly share a Powershot camera. I also would be worried about the durability of my iPhone while caving, rock climbing, or other activities. With a camera like this, I would be far less concerned. It also can handle knocks a lot better than my delicate touch screen device.

You will get free shipping on this camera as it costs over $20.

FutureShop Canada: Boxing Day Deals & Flyer

Put on your gloves, pick out your favourite trunks and get some awesome Boxing Day deals at FutureShop!

There are lots of good deals here, so let’s get right into them:

Those are just a few specific deals, but there are tons more, including a lot of really good TV deals. All iPads are also on sale, and there are even some great deals on appliances. I will mention that the video game deals were kind of junk, but that’s expected with a couple of new consoles on the market.

I did some price comparing and pretty much everything is a legit deal. The “before” prices are inflated a bit on a lot of the items, but that doesn’t make the “after” prices any less great.

The deals go live on the 24th online and in stores on the 26th December 2013. Some stores are opening early on the 26th, so call your location to see when they open. Shipping is free on orders over $20.

Here is the full Future Shop Boxing Day flyer:

Walmart Canada: Samsung Camera Only $199

Posted by on November 23, 2013 at 6:00 PM

Walmart Canada: Samsung Camera Only $199

Walmart has a fantastic deal on a Samsung camera, with $100 off, now only $199.86.

This all-in-one camera makes a fantastic gift idea. It has a 35 times super long zoom, so you can take photos of those moments that are far away, like your child on stage at the holiday concert, scoring a goal, or for stalking your ex (although I don’t recommend that). The photos are still crisp and sharp, even at a long distance. Low light is not tricky for this camera either, with a super-fast and sensitive 16-megapixel back-side illuminated CMOS sensor.

Not just a camera, it does full HD videos and has optimal sound settings so that all you hear is the video itself and not the camera working.

I couldn’t find very many reviews on this camera, but I think it is an inexpensive option and at $100 off, it makes it a great deal too. If you want a camera with a number of great reviews and many features, you are going to pay quite a bit more.

Shipping is free. For other stores that ship for free, check out our free shipping page.

TheSource Canada: 50% Off Accessory Kit For Canon T2i, T3i, T4i or T5i ($50)

Posted by on November 15, 2013 at 6:30 PM

TheSource Canada: 50% Off Accessory Kit For Canon T2i, T3i, T4i or T5i ($50)

Get protection and power from Canon and The Source!

Normally this is $99.99, but you’re getting it for 50% off! You only pay $49.99. I can’t find the same item anywhere else, but there are similar deals for around $100 on other sites. This particular kit gets you a LowePro camera bag (which I hear are great) and an LP-E8 battery. The Source doesn’t mention the T5i in the title of the product, but it is compatible.

I don’t do photography, but I’m a big nerd and I constantly have some sort of technology in front of me. Invariably, it’s battery powered. The batteries always die and it’s a pain in the butt. Just last night, I left for work and my phone was at 22%. Normally, I remember to bring my four foot long charge cord, but I forgot it this time and only had a six inch cord that I use in my car. I could listen to stuff on my headphones, but I couldn’t really use the phone because it was tethered to my computer with a six inch cable. If I’d had an extra battery, I’d be all set. It’s the same thing with your camera. As for cases, well, when I’m done with my technology, it looks like it’s been used: full of dings, scratches and scuffs. If I was smart, I’d get a case: $50 to protect thousands of dollars of camera gear is a great deal.

Shipping starts at $4.99 and goes up from there depending on where you are and how fast you want it delivered, but you could also pick it up in store for free.

Staples Canada: Canon PowerShot A2600 Now $89 (Save $30)

Staples Canada has this Canon PowerShot A2600 digital camera on sale from $119 .26 down to $89.26.

Everywhere else we have looked for this camera it has been $109 or higher, including at This camera is 16MP with a 5x optical zoom lens so you can get really up close. It has a built in 28mm wide-angle lens. The feature people will most appreciate is probably the Smart AUTO intelligent system: it automatically selects the right camera settings based on thirty-two predefined shooting situations. At less than $90, this camera makes a great gift idea for someone special!

There are a bunch of reviews on for the camera and here is one that sums up the general good reviews:

This is neither too complex nor oversimplified. It has all the feature I wanted. I get great pictures, easy to get from the camera to my computer. It is small, yet not tiny, very light weight. I really do love it. Great value for the money.

Other reviewers mentioned really good battery life as a prominent feature as well.

As this camera costs over $45, it will ship for free.

Amazon Canada: Canon EOS Rebel T3 12.2 MP DSLR Only $299

Amazon has a great deal on the Canon EOS Rebel T3 12.2 MP digital SLR camera with EF-S 18-55mm DC III Zoom lens. It is only $299, was $499. I priced compared and no store sold this camera at this price, with most at the $375 range.

Such a fantastic gift idea, the price of DSLRs have really come down. I got my first one eight years ago and it cost my husband about $1500 including a second lens and an exterior flash. That camera has seen better days and I’d love a new one! This is definitely wish-list worthy. As many of great Amazon deals have been selling out quickly, I wouldn’t wait too long if you’d like this camera. General features include:

  • High image quality and speed
  • High-speed and reliable 9-point AF system
  • Continuous shooting up to 3 JPEGs
  • ISO range from 100 – 6400
  • Quick control screen for easy operation

Shipping will also be free.

Dell Canada: Canon EOS Rebel DSLR w/ Lens & Case $310 (Save $240)

Seriously, $310 for an entry level DSLR camera is just wicked. Especially because this one is not just the body, it also comes with a lens and a case. Originally $549.99 the bundle is now on sale for $309.99.

This deal is for the Canon EOS Rebel T3 12.2 MP CMOS Digital SLR Bundle With EF-S 18-55mm DC Lens and Lowepro Case.

Neither of those prices include the case though so you are not only getting the best price at Dell Canada, you are also getting a bonus case.

The camera features:

  • Canon DIGIC 4 image processor
  • 63-zone, dual-layer metering
  • Canon’s Basic+ function
  • HD video recording
