eBay (via BigValueInc) has the Nikon D7100 DSLR Camera + NIKKOR DX 18-105mm ED VR Lens available for $1,099.99 with free shipping. Compare at $1,296.95.
 
Caveat Emptor: Note that the Nikon D7100 deal listed here is not advertised as coming with Nikon USA service or warranty and this camera is likely a grey market item. The auction indicates that a warranty is included, but that warranty may be a BigValueInc warranty. If such, BVI's warranty only covers parts for 1 year and labor for 90 days.
 
BigValueInc's positive feedback rating is at 99.2%. That is a good rating (and has been improving), but not a stellar rating. We have received a couple of reports of buyers receiving the wrong product when purchasing from this merchant, so be sure to keep all supporting documents if taking advantage of this offer. eBay trusts "BigValueInc" enough to call them a "Top Rated Plus" seller and to list their auctions as "Daily Deals". We have had a good first-hand experience with them (here and here).

S. Dirk Schafer over at CLICKittyCat.com created this flowchart to let us know when it's appropriate to click the shutter button. I hope you enjoy the humor as much as I did. ;-) [Sean]

How do you explain film photography to a generation of digital shooters? Watch as Buzz Feed tries to do just that.
 
On a personal note, I'm old enough to remember shooting with film cameras. But having been entrenched in the digital SLR world over the past decade, I would never go back to film. I believe the benefits of digitally captured images far outweighs the negatives.
 
And I must question Buzz Feed's Gizmo comparison when talking to people who aren't old enough to remember film. If they aren't old enough to know about film, then they certainly aren't old enough to remember a character from 1984's Gremlins... [Sean]

eBay (via BigValueInc) has the Canon EOS 6D DSLR Camera (review) available for $1,349.99 with free shipping. Compare at $1,499.00**. (thanks Mark)
 
Caveat Emptor:
Note that the 6D deal listed here is not advertised as coming with a Canon USA warranty and this camera may be a grey market item. The auction indicates that a warranty is included, but that warranty may be a BigValueInc warranty. If such, BVI's warranty only covers parts for 1 year and labor for 90 days. Canon USA has been known to provide warranty service for gray market items, but you are at-your-own-risk with that assumption.
 
BigValueInc's positive feedback rating is at 99.2%. That is a good rating (and has been improving), but not a stellar rating. We have received a couple of reports of buyers receiving the wrong product when purchasing from this merchant, so be sure to keep all supporting documents if taking advantage of this offer. eBay trusts "BigValueInc" enough to call them a "Top Rated Plus" seller and to list their auctions as "Daily Deals". We have had a good first-hand experience with them (here and here).
 
** The "Compare at" price listed above is Adorama's checkout price and includes free shipping, 2% Rewards, a Canon USA Warranty, and two free accessories (battery and SD card). [Sean]
