Rigu Is a Quirky Camera Store For Quirky People Who Like Quirky Things: Offers Phoblographer Readers 10% Discount

When new startups pop up, I get excited. Why? Because it’s a damn good sign that someone else is trying to make the economy not suck. Rigu is such a creature. Born out of the idea that camera bags and the like shouldn’t be boring, Rigu appeals to photogs that want to have a little bit of flair or want something totally different than everyone else. Based in Northern England, they’re kind of like Photojojo with a British accent.

Now here’s the part you care about: make a purchase there and use the code PHOBLOG10 and you’ll receive a 10% discount off on anything. I’m not going to try to tell you that’s a sweet deal because I don’t do those kind of things, but I can tell you HHHNNNNFFFFFFFGGGGHHHHHH I WANT BLUE CANVAS BAG NAOO!!!!!!! GGGAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

Let us know your thoughts.

Cheap Photo: Sigma Lens Discounts at B&H Photo

Sigma 105mm f/2.8 Macro
Sigma 105mm f/2.8 Macro

Sigma 105mm f/2.8 Macro

Though Sigma has received a bad rep in the past, I have to admit that the quality of their lenses in the past year has drastically improved: especially with their primes.

With that said, B&H Photo currently has discounts on a bunch of their lenses. The ones that you’ll probably care about the most are the 105mm f2.8 and 70-200mm f2.8 EX: both of which were reviewed on this site.

But they also have the Bower 24mm f1.4 in stock, which is the same thing as the Rokinon 24mm f1.4. Again, we implore you to check out our review before you purchase.

Happy spending!

Cheap Photo: Rebates That Will Make Your Spouse Force You To Sleep on the Couch

There are currently a bunch of rebates going on at B&H Photo; but here are some of the best.

– First off, there is a deal on the Canon 600 EX-RT when you purchase it with Adobe Lightroom 4. We recently reviewed that piece of software and overall found it to be favorable.

– There are also bundled rebates on the Canon T3i and T2i. We gave the T3i our editor’s choice award. If you don’t think that is the Canon DSLR for you, you should check out our buyer’s guide.

– Not to leave you Nikon users in the dark, there are also rebates on the D5100 and D3100. I own a D5100 and highly recommend it.

– T3i or D5100? We’ve got you covered.

– Panasonic’s most current mirrorless cameras are all available with rebates.

– There is a one day special today on SanDisk SD cards.
