Buying a Tokina Lens From SSE Photo & Video

buying a tokina camera lens from sse photo videoA question that I see being asked a lot is – Should I buy a Tokina camera lens from SSE Photo & Video?

There isn’t a ton of information on the internet about individual 3rd party sellers on Amazon, so let’s start here:

First of all, let’s make sure you’ve looked through their current promotions and sale items. Sometimes items are listed separately as part of limited-time promotions. Currently, they do have a Save 20% off with purchase of another qualifying item promotion.

So should you purchase a Tokina camera lens from SSE Photo & Video instead of other websites, or sellers on Amazon?


Authorized Dealer

The first thing to ask when buying any sort of Tokina product – whether online, or in a physical store – should be: Is this seller an authorized Tokina dealer?

Authorized Dealer

As far as SSE Photo & Video is considered, the answer is yes.

They are listed as Power Photo Corp. (probably the parent company).

Buying from an authorized dealer is as important as getting a good price. If you don’t purchase from an authorized dealer, you won’t be entitled to the manufacturer warranty – even if the seller claims that you are.

Price and Shipping

There are a lot of online store selling Tokina camera lenses. Their prices are usually higher compared to Amazon, where shipping is almost always free too.

Let’s look at an example:

Tokina AT-X 116 PRO DX-II 11-16mm f/2.8 Lens for Canon EF 18PC Accessory Kit

On other electronics websites, you can purchase the pieces of this Tokina AT-X 116 PRO DX-II 11-16mm f/2.8 Lens for Canon EF 18PC Accessory Kit for around $550. Depending on which site you purchase from, and where you live, you can probably add another $15 or so on top of that for shipping – at least!

Here is the same Tokina AT-X 116 PRO DX-II 11-16mm f/2.8 Lens Kit sold by SSE Photo & Video on Amazon.

Pricing aside, you are still saving $15 or more on the shipping alone – not to mention the overall package of accessories included.

I showed one price example. You might be looking for a different model from Tokina. If so, it’s really easy to find the best deal on Amazon. Just use the Amazon Discount Finder tool that appears at the top of this page (for desktop users). It looks something like this:

After you choose your desired country, click on the All Categories section, and in this case, choose Photo or Electronics, like this:

finding the best camera and drone deals on amazon

Then just type in Tokina, and the model or type that you are looking for. You can choose your desired discount level if you wish to, but it’s not necessary. Then click on Search Discount. It should then bring up all of the models available, and at the top of the list will be those with the highest discount currently available on Amazon.

On a related side note, many online merchants also sell on Amazon. You’d be surprised by the amount of sellers/websites that sell their products for less on Amazon. With all the competition on Amazon, stores have to offer up their best price, in order to get the sale. They don’t have to be so generous on their own site, since you only see their price. Often times, a discount code will bring the cost down to the Amazon price.


Feedback

Feedback is an important thing on Amazon. It’s not a highlighted feature like it is on eBay, but it determines a seller’s success on Amazon behind the scenes. To have a successful store, a seller needs to maintain a high level of feedback history. Since most of us have never heard of some of the 3rd Party Sellers on Amazon, it’s easy to be skeptical. So take advantage of the fact that Amazon shows their feedback score.

As far as SSE Photo & Video is considered, they have a earned over 30,000 positive feedback ratings, with a current 97% overall score.

If an item even SLIGHTLY looks like it might be a counterfeit or knock-off, customers on Amazon will leave bad feedback. Any and all flaws will usually be reflected in a seller’s feedback as well.

Given their strong feedback history, SSE Photo & Video is definitely a well reputed seller on Amazon.


Returns

If you purchase from a random website, the return/exchange guarantee period is always variable. Sometimes its 7-days, sometimes 14-days, etc. And they usually come with certain restrictions and limitations.

On Amazon, you get the A-to-z Guarantee when purchasing from a 3rd party seller, regardless of their return policy. You are entitled to a 30 day period – from the date you receive the item – to file your claim. It really does take the risk out of purchasing online, and makes you feel secure with your purchase. If you ever have any issues with your order, Amazon’s 24/7 customer service is there to help you.

If you have ever had to file a claim with your credit card company, or waited months for a refund on a return, you will appreciate Amazon’s A-to-z Guarantee.


Product 
Availability

Amazon is the largest retailer on the planet. No matter what brand or product you are looking for, chances are they will have it, and offer a number of options as well.

You can find any Tokina lens there, like a Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X116 Pro DX II Digital Zoom Lens (AF-S Motor), or a Tokina AT-X 100mm f/2.8 PRO D Macro Lens for Canon EOS Digital and Film Cameras, or even a Tokina ATXAF247FXC 24-70mm f/2.8 Pro FX Lens for Canon EF, etc.


Ease of Use

Let’s face it – we all use Amazon. We’re familiar with the site, how to use it, how to check out – everything is where it should be, and everything works every time. It’s comfortable. And it’s fast!

On other websites, that’s not exactly the case. If you want to sort by brand, and then by price, it doesn’t work sometimes it doesn’t work as smoothly as you’d like. You’re left sorting through a bunch of results. Different brands, different categories, etc.

And if you try searching for a specific product, sometimes they load, other times they don’t. You’re left wanting much more functionality than they are able to deliver.


Amazon Authority

Feedback History3rd party sellers who sell on Amazon, want to remain in good standing with Amazon. As a seller, you have to meet very strict selling guidelines. You have to maintain a minimum performance rate in order to keep selling on Amazon. On top of that, you also want to receive positive feedback for all transactions.

In other words, you have to ship by the guaranteed ship by date, you have to deliver the item as described, and you have to process timely refunds (if they are initiated). You can’t take any liberties that you might on your own website.

You are pretty much guaranteed a consistently positive purchase every time you order something on Amazon. You can’t say the same about other websites or merchants.

Final Thoughts

We all want to find the best price available. For something on the expensive side, like a Tokina camera lens, it pays to shop around. Check the Amazon Discount Finder tool above to find the best deals, and to find out what is currently on sale.

Normally, you have to click a few options to find what is currently discounted. And it’s not such an easy option to locate. The discount finder tool does all the hard work for you.

A note about Tokina cameras:

Tokina lenses are a step up from brands like Rokinon, Samyang, etc. They are better built, with sharper imaging capabilities. They are on the same level as Sigma, or Tamron lenses.

They aren’t quite on the level of something like Nikon or Canon, but they are definitely solid, both in workmanship, and optical quality.

Price and Shipping

Many web merchants also sell on Amazon. Their prices are usually the same, if not lower on Amazon. Shipping is almost always free too.

Let’s look at an example:

On the superdigitalcity.com website, you can purchase this Sigma EM-140 DG Macro Ring Flash for Nikon SLR Cameras for $379. Depending on where you live, you can add another $10-15 on top of that for shipping.

Here is the same Sigma EM-140 Flash sold on Amazon.

Pricing aside, you are still saving about $10-15 on the shipping. That’s like having a $15 off coupon code right?

I showed one price example. You might be looking for a different item. If so, it’s really easy to find the best deal on Amazon. Just use the Amazon Discount Finder tool that appears at the top of this page. It looks something like this:

Product 
Availability

You would think that the products available would be identical in both locations – but they aren’t. They have some products in their Amazon store that are actually not available on their own website.

For example, let’s say you’re looking for a Sigma 30mm F1.4 Contemporary DC DN Lens for Sony E. You’ll have to go their Amazon store for it – at the moment, they don’t carry it on the Super Digital City website.


Ease of Use

Let’s face it – we all use Amazon. We’re familiar with the site, how to use it, how to check out – everything is where it should be, and everything works every time. It’s comfortable. And it’s fast!

Trade In

Did you know that Amazon will buy your used camera gear (as well as other electronics)? Whether you have an old camera, watch, tv, tablet, etc., you can go to the Amazon Trade-In page, and get an instant quote on your old electronics. You just answer a few questions, like what condition the item is in, what accessories you have, etc., and Amazon will send you a label. You ship it to them, and they will send you an Amazon gift card that you can apply toward your next purchase(s).

When I traded in my old Nikon D3400, I received $275 for it. That was almost half the price of the new camera I was purchasing. I probably could have gotten a few dollars more by selling it on eBay, but I liked the fact that I didn’t have to list it myself, wait for a buyer, deal with questions, etc.


Final Thoughts

Whichever way you decide to make your purchase, you can feel confident buying from Super Digital City. They are an authorized seller of all the brands that they carry. You will never receive grey market goods from Super Digital City.

If you are unfamiliar with the term “grey market”, it basically means products that are sold by an unauthorized seller. Grey market can include counterfeits, defects, blemishes, international versions, etc. These products do not carry the original manufacturer’s warranty (even if the seller states that they do). Stay safe – purchase from an authorized dealer!

Having been in business for awhile now, Super Digital City has had a long selling history, both online, and locations in Brooklyn, NY.

On other websites, that’s not exactly the case. If you want to sort by brand, and then by price, it doesn’t work sometimes it doesn’t work as smoothly as you’d like. You’re left sorting through a bunch of results. Different brands, different categories, etc.

And if you try searching for a specific product, sometimes they load, other times they don’t. You’re left wanting much more functionality than they are able to deliver.


Amazon Authority

Feedback History3rd party sellers who sell on Amazon, want to remain in good standing with Amazon. As a seller, you have to meet very strict selling guidelines. You have to maintain a minimum performance rate in order to keep selling on Amazon. On top of that, you also want to receive positive feedback for all transactions.

In other words, you have to ship by the guaranteed ship by date, you have to deliver the item as described, and you have to process timely refunds (if they are initiated). You can’t take any liberties that you might on your own website.

You are pretty much guaranteed a consistently positive purchase every time you order something on Amazon. You can’t say the same about other websites or merchants.

Final Thoughts

We all want to find the best price available. For something on the expensive side, like a ZeroTech drone, it pays to shop around. Check the Amazon Discount Finder tool above to find the best deals, and to find out what is currently on sale.

Normally, you have to click a few options to find what is currently discounted. And it’s not such an easy option to locate. The discount finder tool does all the hard work for you.

Norman Camera Promos and Coupon Codes

Norman Camera coupon codesAre you searching for Norman Camera coupons or Norman Camera Promo Codes?

Did you know that Norman Camera also sells on Amazon? Their store on Amazon is called Norman Camera & Video.

Click here to check out what specials and promotions they offer in their Amazon store.

So why should you purchase from their store on Amazon instead of their site? Let’s take a look at a few reasons you should consider Amazon:


Feedback

If you have read online reviews, you already know that Norman Camera is a very reputable seller. Norman Camera also has a very high reputation on Amazon. Currently, they have a 96% positive score, and have received about 20,000 positive feedback ratings. Over the past 12 months, they have had a 97% positive transaction rate.

Price and Shipping

Many web merchants also sell on Amazon. Their prices are usually the same, if not lower on Amazon. Shipping is almost always free too.

Let’s look at an example:

On the normancamera.com website, you can purchase this Sony Alpha A6000 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 16-50mm Lens for $648. Depending on where you live, you can add another $10-15 on top of that for shipping.

Here is the same Sony Alpha A6000 Digital Camera with Lens sold on Amazon.

Pricing aside, you are still saving about $10-15 on the shipping. That’s like having a $15 off coupon code right?

I showed one price example. You might be looking for a different item. If so, it’s really easy to find the best deal on Amazon. Just use the Amazon Discount Finder tool that appears at the top of this page. It looks something like this:


After you choose your desired country, click on the All Categories section, and in this case, choose Photo or Electronics.

Then just type in whatever brand and model  that you are looking for. You can choose your desired discount level if you wish to, but it’s not necessary. Then click on Search Discount. It should then bring up all of the models available, and at the top of the list will be those with the highest discount currently available on Amazon.

On a related side note, you’d be surprised by the amount of sellers/websites that sell their products for less on Amazon. With all the competition on Amazon, stores have to offer up their best price, in order to get the sale. They don’t have to be so generous on their own site, since you only see their price. Often times, a discount code will bring the cost down to the Amazon price.


Returns

If you purchase from normancamera.com, the return/exchange guarantee period is 21 days. There is also a 10% restocking fee if the item is returned within 10 days from purchase. Approved returns/exchanges made 10-21 days from purchase may be subject to a 15% restocking fee.

On Amazon, you get the A-to-z Guarantee when purchasing from a 3rd party seller, regardless of their return policy. You are entitled to a 30 day period – from the date you receive the item – to file your claim. It really does take the risk out of purchasing online, and makes you feel secure with your purchase. If you ever have any issues with your order, Amazon’s 24/7 customer service is there to help you.

If you have ever had to file a claim with your credit card company, or waited months for a refund on a return, you will appreciate Amazon’s A-to-z Guarantee.


Product 
Availability

You would think that the products available would be identical in both locations – but they aren’t. They have some products in their Amazon store that are actually not available on their own website.

For example, let’s say you’re looking for a Fujifilm Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic Instant Film Camera. You’ll have to go their Amazon store for it – at the moment, they don’t carry it on the Norman Camera website.

Trade In

Did you know that Amazon will buy your used camera gear (as well as other electronics)? Whether you have an old camera, watch, tv, tablet, etc., you can go to the Amazon Trade-In page, and get an instant quote on your old electronics. You just answer a few questions, like what condition the item is in, what accessories you have, etc., and Amazon will send you a label. You ship it to them, and they will send you an Amazon gift card that you can apply toward your next purchase(s).

When I traded in my old Nikon D3400, I received $275 for it. That was almost half the price of the new camera I was purchasing. I probably could have gotten a few dollars more by selling it on eBay, but I liked the fact that I didn’t have to list it myself, wait for a buyer, deal with questions, etc.


Final Thoughts

Whichever way you decide to make your purchase, you can feel confident buying from Norman Camera. They are an authorized seller of all the brands that they carry. You will never receive grey market goods from Norman Camera.

If you are unfamiliar with the term “grey market”, it basically means products that are sold by an unauthorized seller. Grey market can include counterfeits, defects, blemishes, international versions, etc. These products do not carry the original manufacturer’s warranty (even if the seller states that they do). Stay safe – purchase from an authorized dealer!

Having been in business since 1957, Norman Camera has had a long selling history, both online, and locations in Kalamazoo, MI. Norman Camera has had a file with the Better Business Bureau since 06/15/1987. They currently have an A+ rating with the BBB.

Buying a Metabones Booster From SSE Photo & Video

buying metabones from sse photo videoA question that I see being asked a lot is – Should I buy a Metabones booster from SSE Photo & Video?

There isn’t a ton of information on the internet about individual 3rd party sellers on Amazon, so let’s start here:

First of all, let’s make sure you’ve looked through their current promotions and sale items. Sometimes items are listed separately as part of limited-time promotions. Currently, they do have a Save 15% off with purchase of another qualifying item promotion.

Click here to check specials and promotions for SSE Photo & Video on Amazon

So should you purchase a Metabones booster from SSE Photo & Video instead of other websites, or sellers on Amazon?


Authorized Dealer

The first thing to ask when buying any sort of Metabones product – whether online, or in a physical store – should be: Is this seller an authorized Metabones dealer?

Authorized Dealer

As far as SSE Photo & Video is considered, the answer is yes.

They are listed as Power Photo Corp. (probably the parent company).

Buying from an authorized dealer is as important as getting a good price. If you don’t purchase from an authorized dealer, you won’t be entitled to the manufacturer warranty – even if the seller claims that you are.

Price and Shipping

There are a lot of online store selling Metabones boosteres. Their prices are usually higher compared to Amazon, where shipping is almost always free too.

Let’s look at an example:

metabones speed booster from sse photo video

On other electronics websites, you can purchase the pieces of this Metabones Canon EF to Sony E-Mount T Speed Booster ULTRA II 0.71x – 6PC Accessory Bundle for around $750. Depending on which site you purchase from, and where you live, you can probably add another $15 or so on top of that for shipping – at least!

Here is the same Metabones Speed Booster Accessory Bundle sold by SSE Photo & Video on Amazon.

Pricing aside, you are still saving $15 or more on the shipping alone – not to mention the overall package of accessories included.

I showed one price example. You might be looking for a different model from Metabones. If so, it’s really easy to find the best deal on Amazon. Just use the Amazon Discount Finder tool that appears at the top of this page (for desktop users). It looks something like this:

After you choose your desired country, click on the All Categories section, and in this case, choose Photo or Electronics, like this:

finding the best camera and drone deals on amazon

Then just type in Metabones, and the model or type that you are looking for. You can choose your desired discount level if you wish to, but it’s not necessary. Then click on Search Discount. It should then bring up all of the models available, and at the top of the list will be those with the highest discount currently available on Amazon.

On a related side note, many online merchants also sell on Amazon. You’d be surprised by the amount of sellers/websites that sell their products for less on Amazon. With all the competition on Amazon, stores have to offer up their best price, in order to get the sale. They don’t have to be so generous on their own site, since you only see their price. Often times, a discount code will bring the cost down to the Amazon price.


Feedback

Feedback is an important thing on Amazon. It’s not a highlighted feature like it is on eBay, but it determines a seller’s success on Amazon behind the scenes. To have a successful store, a seller needs to maintain a high level of feedback history. Since most of us have never heard of some of the 3rd Party Sellers on Amazon, it’s easy to be skeptical. So take advantage of the fact that Amazon shows their feedback score.

As far as SSE Photo & Video is considered, they have a earned over 30,000 positive feedback ratings, with a current 97% overall score.

If an item even SLIGHTLY looks like it might be a counterfeit or knock-off, customers on Amazon will leave bad feedback. Any and all flaws will usually be reflected in a seller’s feedback as well.

Given their strong feedback history, SSE Photo & Video is definitely a well reputed seller on Amazon.


Returns

If you purchase from a random website, the return/exchange guarantee period is always variable. Sometimes its 7-days, sometimes 14-days, etc. And they usually come with certain restrictions and limitations.

On Amazon, you get the A-to-z Guarantee when purchasing from a 3rd party seller, regardless of their return policy. You are entitled to a 30 day period – from the date you receive the item – to file your claim. It really does take the risk out of purchasing online, and makes you feel secure with your purchase. If you ever have any issues with your order, Amazon’s 24/7 customer service is there to help you.

If you have ever had to file a claim with your credit card company, or waited months for a refund on a return, you will appreciate Amazon’s A-to-z Guarantee.


Product 
Availability

Amazon is the largest retailer on the planet. No matter what brand or product you are looking for, chances are they will have it, and offer a number of options as well.

You can find any Metabones product there, like a Metabones Canon EF to Micro FourThirds Speed Booster Special Edition fit for OMD, or a Metabones Nikon G Lens to Blackmagic 2.5k Cinema Camera with Micro 4/3 Speed Booster, etc.

Feedback History3rd party sellers who sell on Amazon, want to remain in good standing with Amazon. As a seller, you have to meet very strict selling guidelines. You have to maintain a minimum performance rate in order to keep selling on Amazon. On top of that, you also want to receive positive feedback for all transactions.

In other words, you have to ship by the guaranteed ship by date, you have to deliver the item as described, and you have to process timely refunds (if they are initiated). You can’t take any liberties that you might on your own website.

You are pretty much guaranteed a consistently positive purchase every time you order something on Amazon. You can’t say the same about other websites or merchants.

Trade In

Did you know that Amazon will buy your used camera gear (as well as other electronics)? Whether you have an old camera, watch, tv, tablet, etc., you can go to the Amazon Trade-In page, and get an instant quote on your old electronics. You just answer a few questions, like what condition the item is in, what accessories you have, etc., and Amazon will send you a label. You ship it to them, and they will send you an Amazon gift card that you can apply toward your next purchase(s).

When I traded in my old Nikon D3400, I received $275 for it. That was almost half the price of the new camera I was purchasing. I probably could have gotten a few dollars more by selling it on eBay, but I liked the fact that I didn’t have to list it myself, wait for a buyer, deal with questions, etc.


Final Thoughts

Whichever way you decide to make your purchase, you can feel confident buying from CameraMall. They are an authorized seller of all the brands that they carry. You will never receive grey market goods from CameraMall.

If you are unfamiliar with the term “grey market”, it basically means products that are sold by an unauthorized seller. Grey market can include counterfeits, defects, blemishes, international versions, etc. These products do not carry the original manufacturer’s warranty (even if the seller states that they do). Stay safe – purchase from an authorized dealer!

Having been in business for awhile now, CameraMall has had a decent selling history online.
