128GB Samsung EVO Select microSDXC for $40 w/FS

On the lime-kiwi front, the green color scheme of the Samsung microSD cards, the EVO Select [I am giving them fruit-color names as an easier way to remember them; not sure it helps :)] in the 128GB storage option, is trapped in this convoluted sentence. Okay, it is currently down to $40 at Amazon by Amazon itself. It includes a full size SD adapter and a ten year warranty on the card storage. This is a Class 10 UHS-3. It is not a lightning deal, so expiration unknown. It “defeats” the other options (16GB to 256GB) in its line.

FREE (Google Play): Silent Camera app

Free for the next five days and change (from blog-posting date) is the typically not-free Google Play app Silent Camera (Silent Mode) by Gazami software. The purpose of the app is to silence your smartphone’s built-in camera if you can’t turn off all the annoying consumer-y sounds from your phone’s own camera menus.

FREE to Watch (starts 12pm ET): “Getting started in lifestyle family photography”

If you missed the world premiere yesterday of the “Getting started in lifestyle family photography” with Elena S. Blair, fear not! It will repeat today, starting at 12pm eastern at the CREATIVE LIVE On-AIR free-to-watch classes. Other classes today include “Watercolor 101”. The “Studio Pass” is music-related (music studio, not photography studio; Periphery is the band name)…

12pm ET is the official start time of a new day (24 hour cycle) of streaming at CL On-AIR. The classes repeat throughout the night, cable-TV style, so you don’t have to catch them during the daytime.

40% Dell Monitors with Dell Refurbished coupons

We already mentioned the month-long March 2018 coupons from Dell Refurbished, now we have a 7-day coupon on monitors.

Coupon code: MONITOR40 gets you 40% off any Dell Monitor with prices starting at $47 for 19.5 inch monitors. The coupons as usual are only good at the Dell Refurbished website (formerly Dell Financial Services), not any of the other Dell websites. Coupon expires 3/12/18 at 11:59pm central.

Stock Updates: FREE Overnight on Sony a7 III Pre-Orders; Etc

An early bird update of the Stock Status Tracker has two new developments since our last mention:

+ Sony a7 III body pre-orders for the standard price of $2000 at Adorama get FREE Overnight shipping (when the camera is in-stock; obviously they can’t ship it before it becomes available, so if you order today, you won’t get the camera tomorrow; but when it comes in-stock, it will ship with free overnight shipping)

+ B&H Photo too is now offering a FREE Fuji-Domke F-803 camera bag with Fuji X-H1 purchases for $1900, just like Adorama
+ no free bags at Amazon – Bezos is hoarding them so he can fuel his rockets with them 🙂

Imported Nikon D810 body w/1-YR Seller Warranty for $1900

The new condition Nikon D810 body only goes for $2800 at authorized dealers which offer it with a variety of useful freebies, eg, Adorama. But if you are comfortable with imported grey-market cameras…

… to the eBay Deals we go where eBay seller “6ave” (98.7%) is offering the Nikon D810 body only in new condition imported grey-market with a 1-year seller warranty for $1900 with free shipping with up to three units per customer at the sale price…

The price difference is certainly big, $900! Considering that the D810 is a previous generation model, going refurbished or used or grey-market may be the smart money idea. After all, $3300 can theoretically get you the new Nikon D850 [impossible to find – check Stock Status Tracker], so why spend $2800 on the previous generation ~ unless of course you specifically want the D810 in new condition from authorized dealers.

Sandisk Ultra Dual Drives (USB-C, USB Full Size): 64GB for $22, 128GB for $41

Earlier in the week we mentioned sales of the microUSB and USB full size dual drives. And just as I finally figured out how to “feel” the correct side of microUSB by touch, everyone is switching to USB-C now 😉

Which brings us to the Sandisk Ultra dual drives with one side USB-C and the other side USB full size (Type A). The 64GB version goes for $22.49, while the 128GB version goes for $41~. The 32GB version is $17~ which puts it too close to the 64GB price. Both of the 64GB and 128GB look like automated price-matches of 3rd-party sellers, so expiration time is unknown. Free shipping for Prime members or with a $25+ order.

PS: or you can attach a microUSB to USB-C adapter to your current microUSB/USB-Full-size dual drive device 🙂
