This deal was supposed to end on June 20th, but ... it is still live and still very hot: Use coupon code June612 for free shipping and coupon code 20SLR612 to save 20% on refurbished Canon DSLR Cameras, Lenses and Flashes at the Canon Store.
The lens inventory has been ravaged, but additional models show up occasionally - keep checking.
There are many good DSLRs avilable - at amazing prices. Some examples:
Refurbished EOS 7D - $1,087.20
Refurbished EOS 60D - $639.99
Refurbished EOS Rebel T3i with EF-S 18-55mm IS II Lens - $511.99
Expect Canon refurbished gear to be like new.
Formerly scheduled to end on June 2nd, the current Canon DSLR, Lens and Flash Rebate Program is once again scheduled to end - on Sat June 30th. The best time to buy Canon gear is usually during a rebate, so take another look at what rebates are available.
The Canon rebate programs have been harder to figure out in recent years, but ... I'll be surprised if this one is extended again. Just my wild guess.
Be sure to check out the easy-to-use special Canon rebate page at B&H.
If buying a DSLR, don't forget the $400.00 Canon PIXMA Pro9000 Mark II Inkjet Printer combo rebate ($500.00 for the Pro9500).

Capture Consistent Color Day-to-Day and Camera-to-Camera with Updated SpyderCheckr™ from Datacolor
First Color Reference System to Support Hasselblad Phocus™ Now Available in Bundle Package; Offers Photographers Inclusive Solution for Camera and Scene Color Control
Datacolor SpyderCheckr
Lawrenceville, NJ – June 21, 2012 –– Datacolor® (, a global leader in color management solutions, today announced SpyderCheckr™, an advanced color reference and gray card system, now supports Hasselblad’s Phocus™ software. In addition, the improved system will be included in the new SpyderCheckr Pro, a bundle package that includes both the SpyderCheckr and the SpyderCube, a pocket size RAW calibration tool that eliminates the need for traditional 18% gray cards and includes a Black Trap for shadow detail control. Together, SpyderCheckr and SpyderCube offer a comprehensive solution for camera and scene color control. SpyderCheckr Pro is currently available at a special introductory offer of $139.
Spectrally engineered with 48 color patches and user-friendly profiling software, Datacolor SpyderCheckr enables photographers to achieve consistent, predictable color control from capture to edit. The only color reference system that supports Hasselblad’s Phocus software, SpyderCheckr allows photographers to obtain consistent, accurate color within a standard RAW processing workflow, perform precision in-camera white balance, create custom camera calibration and record known color references.
Features of the Datacolor SpyderCheckr also include:

  • Consistent color control for RAW workflow, giving a color standard for any camera and decreasing post production time
  • Neutral gray target and gray ramp for in-camera white balance and visual neutrality
  • Extensive skin tone samples for portrait and fashion photography including 48 spectrally engineered color patches with extensive skin tones
  • Durable, eco-friendly self-casing construction for easy transport and field use, with replaceable targets, first-in-class tripod mount and an innovative built-in fade strip indicator that issues a warning when target inserts need replacing
  • Easy-to-use software that interacts with Hasselblad Phocus, Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop and Camera RAW to produce calibration presets that fit directly into a digital workflow
  • FadeCheckr is a light sensitive patch which allows you to track the light exposure of the color targets and warns you when it is time to replace the color cards.

“The SpyderCheckr is a vital tool for photographers who are looking for accurate and predictable color without having to spend hours adjusting color in post-production,” said Dave Faulkner, Product Manager for Imaging Color Solutions at Datacolor. “Combining the SpyderCheckr with the SpyderCube in the newly released SpyderCheckr Pro product bundle provides photographers the essential tools to control color and contrast at the capture stage, as well as streamline their workflow to produce reliable and consistent color resulting in beautiful images.”
Availability and Pricing
The SpyderCheckr Pro bundle is now available for a special promotional offer of $139 (regular price $179). For more information please visit
