Basically the best value and most recommended vlogging camera or beginner photography camera. This price is BELOW the street selling used price of this camera. The lens will sell for $80, and camera for $450-500. Great for starting youtubers or streamers.
PROS: It has a front flippy screen, viewfinder, mic input, the most amazing dual pixel auto focus, cheaper than anything else, highly rated, touchscreen, easy to use, CAN BE USED AS A WEBCAM ON MAC AND PC
CONS. It has a limited 24p 4k mode with no dual pixel, only 720p when doing 120 fps. no headphone jack for audio monitoring, no clean hdmi (unless you turn off autofocus)
A friend of mine called and said it will end tomorrow so I'm finally posting this. I was holding out as it's such a good deal for my friends to get.

This is the refurbished one. The new ones go for $199 and refurbished normally go for $160.
This is YMMV, but I believe easy to replicate.
Here are the steps I took:
1. Call Canon sales:1-800-385-2155, and say you want to purchase the EOS-R, and ask about the customer loyalty program.
2. You need to currently own a Canon camera and supply them with the serial number. The camera needs to be defective or at end of life.
3. I was given 20% off of the Eos-R sale price of $1,799. Not the base price, but the actual Black Friday sale price. The advertised discount is 15% off, but I didn't ask why I received 20%.
4. You must purchase over the phone and with a credit card.
This is a huge steal over buying gray market and needing to buy an adapter and extended warranty separately.
