You can’t look at Sony cameras on Amazon without coming across the name ‘Cameta Camera‘ as the provider of the item. I had never heard of them and was leery about getting a camera (bundle) from them — as opposed to having the item fulfilled by Amazon.

Then I found a two lens bundle with EXACTLY the two lenses I craved for — at one heck of a price. The Cameta Camera bundle price for the two lenses, plus a flash, memory card etc. etc. is less than I can get a ONE lens kit from Sony. So I called up Cameta Camera on Tuesday to ask them some questions. I was impressed. I also posed the same questions on Amazon and they responded. I feel better.

Given their price I don’t think I can get anything even close in terms of price from anybody else other than Cameta. I will, however, place the order through Amazon. It will be crazy for me not to do so. Not only do I get the comfort of Amazon’s liberal returns policy BUT as a Prime card member I get a 5% ‘reward’ and 6-months, interest free, to pay for the purchase. I, as I have said often, like Amazon and love Amazon Prime.

I don’t plan to order the a77 II bundle till after August 22. I really must get my latest book, at least in Kindle form, done. I won’t have the time to play with a new camera till then — and my birthday isn’t till September. I will, of course, keep you posted. Wish me luck.

This is ALL great news. As ever I got the ‘heads up’ from my U.K. “Daily Mail“, which I read daily, in bed, first thing in the morning, while having my coffee and listening to CNBC.

I am going to watch the YouTube episode tomorrow. Can’t wait till it appears on PBS. Though it says September, it might make an appearance on Boston Channel 44 on August 26, 2015.

I will keep you posted. Enjoy. Cheers.

Update: We watched Season 6 Episode 1 on YouTube, in its entirety, on August 12. It was, at least for us, NOT in HD. That was slightly disappointing because we are so used to HD in nearly everything we watch. And it wasn’t full-screen. It was inside a frame with the name of the show, i.e., “Great British Bake Off”, on it. But it was the full show. We got to see the whole weekend, the 3 bakes, “Star Baker” — and who was kicked out. So it was good. Can’t wait for Episode 2. Kind of NOT sure why PBS is bothering. Most of us will have seen it before PBS gets around to it.
