Sunday Lightning Deals: Usual Camera/Photo accessories

There are nearly 40 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.

Deal Fishing: Overstock Sale at KEH (430+ options)

If you feel like deal fishing, KEH Camera has an Overstock Camera Gear Sale featuring over 430 camera-related products. You can use their website options on the left-hand side over there to filter by product category, brand, system, condition, price-range, etc. Happy fishing 🙂 [insert fishing meme here]

AmazonBasics Cleaning Kit for DSLR Cameras for $3 [limit 10 sets]

If you always run out of cleaning supplies, or you want to have a full set in every bag, car and location, Amazon has a sale on their AmazonBasics Cleaning Kit for DSLR Cameras for the very specific price of $3.27. You can buy up to ten sets per customer.

Each set includes (the number below corresponds to the mouse-written red number in the picture):

  1. 50 sheets of lens cleaning tissue
  2. refillable spray bottle
  3. retractable two-sided cleaning pen with brush and pad
  4. lens brush (looks like a makeup brush)
  5. air blower
  6. three microfiber 6×7 inch cleaning cloths

This set averages 3.9 out of 5 based on 30 customer reviews.

This is however an ADD-ON ITEM, so you must needs place a $25+ order, otherwise the Amazon shopping cart will not let you buy it. You can get to $25+ with any combination of eligible products, a mix of Add-ON and not, or ADD-ON only, eg eight of these will get you to $25+.

For other low-priced Add-ON items to help you get over $25, check the $5 Gadget posts.

Another way to jump over $25 is to get the $28 AmazonBasics Flash. This is its regular price, not a sale price. It averages 3.9 out of 5 based on 88 customer reviews and it is currently the #1 seller in Shoe-Mounted Flashes.

PS: keep in mind, Amazon’s best selling lists are only as good as their categorization of products. The more products they add and the more 3rd-party sellers are allowed to create listings, the bigger the mess it becomes. This is one of the reasons I stopped doing the Best Seller Charts blogs since more and more cameras were missing and more miscategorized products were included.

50-Inch AmazonBasics Lightweight Tripod with Bag for $13

The AmazonBasics Amazon house brand has quietly amassed over 120 camera and photo products, some of which randomly (?) go on a recurring sale, such as the new condition 50-Inch AmazonBasics Lightweight Tripod with Bag on sale for $13~ with a limit of up to ten units per customer. Free 2-day shipping for Prime members, or with a $25+ order (eg two of these).

It is on the same listing as the 60-inch version. Together they average 4.4 out of 5 with over 7000 customer reviews. There is no way to get review average sub-scores for each model ~ short of counting and averaging them manually!
