Dell $250 Off NEX-5

Addendum 2: Dell has the Sony NEX-5 with 18-55mm OSS lens for $399. Add the camera to your cart. Check out and apply coupon code J22D9F4R?22PDC to get $250 off. It seems that more than 1 can be ordered at the discounted price.

Addendum 1: Sony Style is also having Black Friday / Cyber Monday deals for NEX cameras. The NEX-5 is $499 and the NEX-3 is $399. Click on the "Cameras and Camcorders" tab when you get to the page.

Here was the only Black Friday deal we found for the Sony NEX system. The NEX-5 is on sale for $499 at Best Buy. This is a $150 discount on the standard NEX-5 price of $649. Get there early if you want one.



We are staying home and not waiting on lines and will do our black friday shopping at Amazon.

Good luck shoppers!

Replace Sony NEX LCD Protector

eviltig shows us how easy it is to change the LCD protector of an NEX camera. The standard plastic protector peels off, although the "booger is on there." Clean any residue and stick on the glass lcd protector. Below are the before and after pictures of this modification.
