Best Buy Bundles Canon 7D with SD Card

Over the weekend, Best Buy sent out weekly advertising that included a Canon 7D bundle. Funny thing is, they don’t seem to understand that the 7D only takes CompactFlash memory cards, and are selling the bundle with a SanDisk 8GB SD card. Also, it’s not just the advertisement — the online product info also shows the SD card in the images and in the text.

Perhaps next time they should put a photographer in charge of creating their special offer packages.

Do you think they’re actually giving people SD cards with this camera, or is it simply a huge typo/”photoshopo”?


Update: @Coral_BestBuy just responded via Twitter:

@petapixel thanks for the heads up – we’re looking into this right now

Looks like it was a “photoshopo”.


Update: They’ve fixed the website a couple hours after we posted this. That was pretty fast.

    Nah, it’s not just photoshop, I work at Best Buy and hate their website, they know nothing of photography, they mess this stuff up all of the time, I once had someone call about ordering a bundle of a 5dMkII and the 18-200 EF-S lens, and it WAS on our website… ridiculous.
