2020 Nissan 370Z 50th Anniversary Edition pricing announced

To further celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Z sports car, the 2020 Nissan 370Z got a 50th Anniversary Edition model featuring a two-tone color scheme evoking BRE race cars of the early 1970s. It certainly looks stylish, but you'll pay for the looks. Specifically, you'll pay $37,315, an extra $2,600 on top of the 370Z Sport's unchanged base price of $34,715.

Besides the badging and fancy livery, the 50th Anniversary Z doesn't bring much else aside from some Alcantara and faux suede details, contrast stitching, more badging and power heated seats inside. In fact, it actually removes the front and rear spoilers that come standard with the 370Z Sport, so you actually lose some parts. So this package is really for people that are head over heels for the design.

Does the idea of being able to take a photo and print it on the spot sound appealing to you?

Fujifilm X-t30 Mirrorless Camera Announced

Fujifilm X-T30 Mirrorless Camera Announced

We have been hearing rumors that Fujifilm could be close to launching a new mirrorless camera in the form of the X-T30. Turns out the rumors were right on the money as the company has since officially announced the camera, making it the company’s latest mirrorless camera to date.

However this is the X-T30 which makes it the successor to the X-T20. This means that it is not one of Fujifilm’s higher-end cameras like the X-T3 or the X-Pro2 or the X-H1. However if pricing is a concern of yours, then the X-T30 is definitely priced lower than the flagship models and should be good enough to get you into the game.
