Saturday Lightning Deals: Usual Camera/Photo accessories

There are over 30 items listed in the Camera & Photo lightning deals (old format) or Full Page format (faster to navigate on Desktop) of the Amazon Gold Box. Due to time constraints I cannot create a detailed listing of them all. The usual assortment of accessories are running throughout the day.

Huawei Honor 8 Unlocked for $259

If you are curious about dual-lens smartphones, and you are also looking for an unlocked 4G LTE new condition smartphone, the 32GB Huawei Honor 8 Unlocked with USA warranty in the blue or white color schemes is on sale for $259 at Amazon by Amazon itself. It has 4GB RAM, 32GB on-board, microSD slot, etc.

Keep in mind, IFA 2017 is just around the corner in Berlin [see Trade Show Calendar] with more Fall 2017 smartphones revealed in the next few weeks (Note 8, LG V30, Pixel 2, iPhones, etc).

Olympus E-M5 II Body with 12-50mm EZ for $999 also eligible for Optional Combined Purchase Olympus Lens Discounts

The Olympus E-M5 II body only has a current promotion that includes the Olympus 12-50mm f3.5-6.3 EZ lens for FREE, going for $999 with free shipping and $40~ in promotional rewards at Adorama in the Black color scheme or the Silver color scheme. But that’s not all!

When you expand the “Special Offer” section (look for the yellow tab towards the middle of the page over there), you will see a variety of OPTIONAL combined purchase discounts. If you buy this kit with the eligible items, you will get the eligible lenses (or other accessories) at a discount over their current prices.

Here’s a screenshot of that section of the page, annotated John Madden style, to give you some ideas:

ORLIT RoveLight RT 610 TTL Monolight for $599

Lighting action now at Adorama. They are offering the ORLIT RoveLight RT 610 TTL Monolight with On Board Power for $599 with free shipping in the Bowens Mount. The standard version (without a transmitter) gets a free ORLIT 5.5″ Reflector. The Canon version and Nikon version include transceivers fro their respective systems. They all go for $599, which explains why the ones with a transceiver don’t get a free reflector 🙂
