CreativeLIVE: up to 50% off Classes

Online classes too are jumping on the Prime Day hype train. CreativeLIVE is having a Mid-Year up to 50% off Sale on their classes. The price you see over there, is the price you pay. No coupon code needed.

But if you prefer not to pay, and you have schedule flexibility, you can watch classes for FREE when they are originally recorded online. Check their ON-AIR SCHEDULE for the upcoming schedule. There’s a variety of classes, including camera-centric courses (eg T6, 80D, 77D, D-Rebel T7i), and photography and post-processing and more.

Note for RSS Readers: Prime Day Situation Room Tracking Mega Post is In Progress

This note is for those of you following on RSS news readers and services that depend on RSS. The Prime Day Situation Room tracker-style mega-post will be continuing with Prime day coverage until Wednesday AM. I will be posting some hot deals as individual blog posts (which you’ll see through RSS), but I can’t post everything as an individual blog-post, it will create blog and RSS overflow.

Your RSS reader may be able to automatically refresh the Prime Day Situation Room post. You can put it in a folder or bookmark it or favorite it if you want to check throughout Prime Week. Unfortunately there are too many RSS readers and services and each use various apps of their own along with 3rd-party apps, so testing which ones refresh and which ones don’t would be a big project in its own right.

Olympus 12-40mm f2.8 with $32 Rewards for $800 [M43]

After the Prime Day madness I will be making adjustments so I can better track the various Camera and Lens Instant Savings promotions. The July 2017 Price Charts were the first step. Until then, it’s helter skelter…

… which brings us to the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO lens going for $800 with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo along with 4% promotional rewards ($32~ to be spent in the future at B&H).

Pre-order new Leica TL2 Mirrorless

It’s new camera time! Leica has officially announced the new TL2 mirrorless camera, with a 24mp APS-C sensor and Leica L-Bayonet Mount. It is available in the two customary Leica black and silver color schemes, with a pre-order price of $1950 at B&H Photo.

This new mirrorless camera now “evens the score” as we have 7 new DSLRs and 7 new Mirrorless cameras in 2017. There’s still plenty of time until the end of the year. But there is no Photokina this year, so we may need a penalty shootout if it ends up being a tie 😉

Find this Useful? Then Please Tell Your Friends!

If you find our non-stop coverage of Prime Day 2017 useful, then please consider telling all your friends who are interested in camera and photo shopping and madness! This is one of the best ways to help support this blog, the more interested people, the merrier 🙂

You can point them to the Home Page or the on-going Prime Deals Situation Room (a goofy name for an on-going round-up). You may also point out to them that we have a free full text RSS feed.

Thanks 🙂

(ENDED) Prime Day Has Began!

Prime Day is now over…

If you are following the updates on RSS, our Prime Day coverage is centered on the Prime Day Situation Room, a mega-post that is frequently updated as deals come out. Due to the chaotic nature of these, I can’t create individual new posts for every single deal. It would create over 100 posts per day! Check the latest action at the Prime Day Situation Room or at the Amazon Prime Day page.

(ENDED) Starts Monday 9pm ET: Microsoft Store 1-Day Sale

This 24 hour sale ended too…

This is a heads-up! Starting at 9pm Eastern today (Monday 7/10/17), the official Microsoft online store is going to be having a
One Day Sale with free shipping and free returns. Sale prices will be revealed when the promotion starts. I am posting it ahead of time for those interested. 9pm ET is when the Amazon Prime Day begins, so at that point in time, I will be a digital Doug Flutie.

(ENDED) Samyang 12mm f2 for $254 (Sony E)

This offer ended…

Another one of today’s busy Lightning Deals of the Amazon Gold Box is currently live, good until 2:05pm ET today, the Samyang SY12M-E-BK 12mm F2.0 Ultra Wide Angle Lens for Sony E is on lightning deal for $254~ in the silver color scheme. The listing for the black color scheme appears to be confused (most likely sold out) in terms of the lightning deal offer. The price before the sale was $319 last night.

(ENDED) Rokinon 135mm f2 for $375 (Sony E-mount) [ends Mon 2pm ET]

This offer ended…

The Gold Box widget had pointed to the Canon EF version of the Rokinon 135mm f2 lens when I posted the Lightning Deals schedule last night, but now that the promotion has gone live, it turns out it is ONLY the Sony E-mount version that is a lightning deal, going for $375 with free shipping until 2:05pm ET today! Since it is “hidden” like that from Gold Box viewers, it has no chances of selling out before its expiration 🙂

(ENDED) YI 4K+/60fps Action Camera with Waterproof Case for $280

This sale ended…

The new condition YI 4K+/60fps Action Camera with Waterproof Case with RAW capture is on sale for $280 with free shipping at offered at this price by both the YI Amazon store, and by Amazon itself. This is not a lightning deal but an “organic” sale. It is NOT restricted to Prime members.
