If you are GoPro-curious but don’t want to pay flagship prices, among the latest round of eBay Deals, you can find the manufacturer refurbished GoPro HERO3 Black Edition offered for $265 with free shipping, with a one year warranty, with a limit of five per customer. This is offered by eBay seller “premiumdirectllc” (99.5%). The listing states this is “FACTORY REFURBISHED, FACTORY SEALED”.

A total of 40 premium apps are participating. You can scoop up as many as you want (including all of them). The photography-related ones:
If your device is not compatible with the app, you can still get it by using a web browser. When the popup tells you that the app is incompatible, just tell it to go ahead and scoop it up… Another helpful thing, the latest version of the Amazon Android (Google Play) app is now able to sideload your Amazon-purchased Android apps, so you don’t have to install the separate Amazon AppStore app… You may need to have at least one Android device connected to your Amazon account before it lets you get any apps. I haven’t tried this with a disconnected account in a while, so I don’t know if they changed this…
If you are looking for a double-figures superzoom that is powered by AA batteries and you are cool with manufacturer refurbished cameras, Adorama is offering the refurbished Nikon Coolpix L610 for $70 with free shipping (black or silver) and the refurbished Nikon Coolpix L620 (black) for $85 with free shipping. These are powered by two AA batteries.
