A Letter from Hunt’s Photo and Video

Dear Favorite Photo People,

Many of you have been asking me about adding or switching to a mirrorless system and I thought this would be a good forum to share my thoughts. I have never been one to want to carry a huge camera. Years ago I used the Olympus OM 1 then switched to Leica. These were the smallest, high quality cameras available in the 1970’s. Now with advent of the mirrorless system you can have even smaller cameras with NO LOSS IN QUALITY! Sure there is a place for the traditional DSLR, but if you’d like to discuss some mirrorless options, please call me at 781-462-2383. And remember, we take trades! By the way, Sony is running some great mirrorless specials this month.

Following are our February specials. These specials will be offered through February 28, 2017 unless otherwise stated. Please note that several are based on limited quantities and I cannot issue rain checks. As always, UPS Ground shipping is FREE in the Lower 48 and there is no sales tax except for orders shipped to MA, RI or ME. In order to receive correct club and workshop special pricing, please call me, Alan Samiljan, at  (781) 462-2383 or send me an email including your phone number to asamiljan@huntsphoto.com and I’ll call you. My hours are usually 8:30-5:30pm, Monday, Tuesday, Friday & Saturday.Canon has continued their printer rebate program. Now through February 28, 2017 or until supplies run out, we are offering the Canon Pixma PRO 10 printer at $379.99 before rebate (Canon sells it on their website for $699.99). If you purchase the printer plus a package of 13x19x50 sheets of Canon Semi-Gloss or Luster paper, $50, Canon will send you a $250 mail in rebate! This is a pigment based printer and is always reviewed very well. Your final cost is $129.99 plus the paper!

As most of you know, the Total Solar Eclipse next August 21st will be visible with near 90% totality in the 48 contiguous states.You will experience 100% totality in a swath that runs from Oregon to South Carolina. In order to photograph it safely, you must use a Solar Filter. Here is a link to the Marumi DHG ND 10000 Solar Eclipse Filter.  (scroll the page to see the DHG ND 10000). We will be stocking this filter in 77mm only, but it can fit smaller sizes with the addition of a step-up ring. Your price is $99.99. Order early as I predict that demand will be greater than supply. This filter is a special order item and is non-cancelable and non-refundable.
