    Hey everyone! Just wanted to know if anyone actually bought any bodies, lens, flashes, etc during the Black Friday sales? I'm anxious to hear back!

    I personally just picked up a refurbished Mark D2 for a really great price!

    Canon.com had their own Black Friday sale. I ordered a refurbished Canon t2i for the same price as a 50mm f1.4 lens.

    Not really on sale, but we bought a Lensbaby Pro, and a Canon 50mm 1.8mm prime for my step daughter to use on her 5DmkII.

    I got my lovely lady a new Olympus XZ-1 point and shoot just before black friday, but I guess it counts as it was deeply discounted. My first camera purchase from the Olympus brand, and after my brief encounter with it before it got wrapped, I must say that I'm impressed so far.

    For those still hunting, the S100 is on-sale at Amazon for $249 till midnight, I think.

    Lol, after I ordered, I noticed the prices went back up and it was listed out of stock. I kept checking, just in case Canon cancels my order.

    I picked up an Eye-Fi Pro card to try out. Was only $49.99 shipped on amazon for a cyber monday deal.

    Oh wow thats great! I love my 50mm 1.8 its a great glass for a great price.

    Haha you really did save quite a bit on it!

    Thats exactly what happened with me. When I checked back it was listed as out of stock and then eventually after a little bit of time, refreshing the page a few times it was available again so I made the purchase before they sold out again! :)

    Right now I have a gift card for the Apple Store and since I don't have anything else in mind, I am thinking of purchasing a 4GB Eye-Fi Pro Card. How do you like yours?

    Not so much... I bought it for my Canon bodies, but the card isnt compatible with Magic Lantern software. (suppose I should have researched, but it was a timed deal, and I have had no issues w/ML before) I have yet to try it with my Olympus Micro4/3, but hopefully I wont have any surprises there.

    Mamiya AF APO 300mm 4.5 lense.... more than half off. Mamiya AF Macro Bellows, about 75% off. I'm a happy camper.

    Is it this problem you're encountering with Magic Lantern and the eye fi card?

    Thanks. Im aware of the work around. My Canon is my main body, and i'd rather not chance going back an forth and something happening. It works fine with my Olympus body. If I cant find use for it with it though I'll just end up selling it. :)
