After purchasing a Sony A6300 in August for a trip (yes, i'm annoyed that the A6500 was recently announced), I've been upping my photography game. I have (and love) the Peak Design Slide Lite [] strap and have been looking around for an Arca Swiss compatible tripod. I saw that this Joby tripod and Ballhead X mount [] was on sale for $96.15 at Amazon. (Actually, I initially bought this bundle this morning when it was priced at $106.76, but called this afternoon for a price adjustment when I noticed the price had dropped).

I don't have much experience with this product or tripods in general, but this Joby product seems quite versatile. The tripod alone retails [] for $99 and the Ballhead X mount [], which is Arca Swiss compatible, sells alone for $70 MSRP. I think I've seen bundles for ~$150. Of note, B&H has this same bundle for sale for $106.76 [] (the same price that Amazon had earlier today), which may be a wash for those who pay taxes on Amazon-sold items. However, with the Jewish holidays, B&H store hours/on-line sales and shipping have put a stop on purchases so it is more convenient for me to buy from Amazon.

Looking at CamelCamelCamel, I see that this is one of the lowest prices. Hope some people will find this deal useful.

what was the price on Prime Day?

and that same argument is used when people like to compare prices for say, Black Friday. kind of an unfair comparison.

anyway, I got one for myself, among the other camera/photo accessories I bought this morning.
