Among the current photography offers at Massdrop there is a 20% off in-cart sale on select Peak Design Camera Clips V3. The price you see on the page is the regular price. It drops by 20% off in the shopping cart because of MAP pricing restrictions. So that’s around $56. There are also optional options and customizations in the shopping cart…

The options are described in detailed further down the product description, so don’t be confused by the mild chaos in the shopping cart πŸ™‚ The products come “guaranteed for life”. They will be shipped by Massdrop in late March 2019 but this offer is restricted to US addresses.

PSA: speaking of Digital Copy, the abomination that is Ultraviolet is closing down on July 31 in 2019, so make sure you take the necessary steps so that your digital copies are synced to other digital libraries that are not going away. Details at the aforelinked page. Do not delete or unlink your Ultraviolet library though, it will confuse the syncing and you may lose titles. Just let it die a quiet peaceful corporate-failure death ^_^

60% off Stacksocial courses with coupon

For a limited time, coupon code PREZDAY60 gets you a 60% off discount on classes and courses at the Stacksocial website. The physical goods (eg consumer electronics) are NOT eligible for the coupon for obvious reasons. If you are not sure whether something would qualify, their shopping cart is the ultimate decider. I believe a Stacksocial account is needed to test the coupon in their shopping cart.

For physical goods and such, coupon code PREZDAY15 gets you 15% off those eligible products. Again, their shopping cart is the ultimate decider…

CreativeLIVE’s Creator Pass for $199 [limited time]

Adorama mid-winter clearance sale [also Refurbished and Open-Box sales]

Adorama is now running a mid-Winter Clearance sale because winter is here but a dream of spring is nowhere on the horizon πŸ˜‰ Over 800 products are participating in the sale, which you can filter using the options on the left hand side and you can sort using the options on the main column (eg sort by price).

For fans of The Refurbished [a good name for a low-fi indie hipster band?], they have refreshed their refurbished sale with over 130 options, a third of which are Nikon cameras and lenses…

If you, just like cats, are a big fan of open boxes, they have also refreshed their open-box sale with over 5300 products available. You can use the various options on the left hand side to filter things by topics or brands of interest because it will take quite a while to go through 5300+ individual listings πŸ™‚

Meanwhile at the Best Buy dailies you can ride the PoNY for $150, that’s their 512GB Elite microSDXC memory card (V30, UHS-I, U1, C10),.. It has one customer review at Best Buy, an unhappy one that did not work with the Galaxy Note but you can find more reviews when you filter for this model [there are 13 of them, and they say the formatted capacity is under 480GB] at, which, as of the time of writing, has not price-matched it ~ it goes for $200 at Bezoslandia…

Multi-Year Sale at DiscountMags (four on-topic options)

Another weekend is upon us and the theme of this weekend’s sale at DiscountMAGs is a Multi-Year Sale, you get the best price if you sign up for a 3-year subscription (new sub, or renewal or gift for other people). OF camera and photo interest there are four options:

You can also sign up for 2-year or 1-year terms but the per-year price is slightly higher.

AS usual, these are printed magazines delivered to USA addresses only. They do not auto-renew like Amazon does.

Wedding photography classes sale at C-LIVE

It’s never too late to be preparing for wedding photography season, since rumor has it people get married all around the year πŸ˜‰ Which brings us to the latest Creative LIVE sale, it is a Wedding Photography sale with the discount amounts varying by class. The price you see is the price you pay.

The sale includes classes from well-known photographers like Lindsay Adler, Robert Lim, Jasmin Star, Jirsa, Cincota and more. Topics cover most aspects of wedding photography but they also have more all-around classes like a “Bootcamp” and a “30 Days” class. There are many classes there, so many there are TWO pages of search results at the aforelinked page.

Speaking of weddings, the 2019 WPPI trade show tips off on February 25 in Las Vegas. Check the trade show calendar for the planned 2019 action…

I am too working on a wedding photography class, it’s a very niche topic but something I believe no one has paid attention to, “Wedding Photography with WebCams for couples married by an internet priest” πŸ™‚

KEH coupon: 15% off select Canon and Nikon gear

It’s CaNiKoN time at KEH Camera! Coupon code CN2A gets you 15% off select Canon and Nikon camera gear over there. The coupon expires Sunday FEB-24-2019 at 11:59pm ET…

You can use the various options at the aforelinked page to sort products in different ways or filter them by type ~ eg if you are a Canon fan and you get physically sick at the sight of Nikon products ~ or vice versa ^_^

Used Nikon D610 body for $609, Manuf Refurb for $899

On the other hand, if you prefer a Nikon 35mm FF DSLR under $1000, Adorama is also offering the manufacturer refurbished Nikon D610 body only for $899 with free US shipping and a 90-day Nikon USA warranty… The new condition goes for $1500 at the moment…

OR at the other end of the price spectrum, the D610 body only goes for $609 in USED condition at Adorama… It comes with a 90-day Adorama warranty and a 30-day money-back guarantee…

So you have a trade-off here of $300 and manufacturer versus seller warranty…

Refurb Nikon Df with 50/1.8G SE for $1700

It’s full frame time of the refurbished kind. Adorama is offering the Nikon Df with 50mm f1.8G Special Edition for $1700 with free US shipping and a 90-day Nikon USA warranty. This is the same price as the refurb body only… The more things change, the more they stay the same, a full frame camera with a 50mm normal prime, just like in the good old film days πŸ™‚

Kodak AZ652 superzoom (65X OIS, RAW) for $300

Adorama does not have conventional daily deals but on occasion they have “snapshot deals” which are limited time offers… One such offer running right now is the new condition Kodak AZ652 superzoom going for $300 with free US shipping… This has a 65x optical zoom with OIS (24-1560mm EQ, f2.9-6.7), 5fps, RAW but on a 1/2.3″ backlit CMOS, flip-out LCD, 1cm macro, EVF, Wifi, 400 CIPA, 21oz body-only, etc.

PS: for our younger viewers, Kodak is not a company created by the famous rapper to sell merchandise. It is an older company, based in upper New York state. The name though for camera marketing purposes is owned by one of the brand-remilking companies, not by the OG Kodak, and still not by the rapper Kodak πŸ˜‰

Meanwhile at Amazon Chermany there’s a 1-yahre Microsoft Office 365 subscription for up to six persons for 55 euro-dollars, or euros in short πŸ™‚ The subscription comes with 1TB in OneDrive as well, so depending on your cloud storage needs, this might be beneficial even if you don’t need Office 365 that much. Six persons = six accounts = up to 6TB of OneDrive. But note that this 1TB is only while you are a paying subscriber…

Weekend (B&H): Sirui Bag, AirSelfie selfies drone, Etc

There are many Surface models out nowadays, it’s a headache sorting things out if you are not intimately familiar with them, especially when you start factoring in the prices of accessories (covers, keyboards, pens, mice, cats, etc) and condition (new, open-box, manufacturer refurbished, 3rd-party refurbished, used, etc).

Ends Wedn PM: YMMV: 6% to 8% eBay Bonus Bucks on $25+

Monday is upon us and with it we have a new round of B&H Photo daily deals with a Lensbabies theme:

European daily deals
Then off we go to the other side of the pond where Amazon Germany is running a sale on various photo printers with prices ranging from 32 to 696 euro from Canon, HP, Epson, Brother. There’s also a few scanners and laser printers. A total of 18 items are participating in the sale. Yes, the 32 euro is indeed a printer, the Canon Pixma MG-2555S [PRO TIP: don’t put an “S” after a “5” in a product name!]

But that’s not all. They also have a sale on Nokia smartphones (3.1 for 169 and 7 Plus for 229 to 239 euro, a 27″ Acer Predator computer monitor, Anker, etc…

EU: 128GB Transcend microSDXC (A1, V30, C10) for 18 euro

Down go the prices! Amazon Germany is offering the new condition 128GB Transcend microSDXC card (A1, V30, C10, U3, UHS-I) for 18 euro with speeds UP TO 95MB/sec. This is not a lightning deal, so the price is not tied to a ticking clock…

Speaking of reasonable prices in the EU, they are also offering the 128GB Sandisk Ultra SDXC (C10, up to 80MB/sec) for 25 euro…

Sunday: 8pk Watson AA rechargeables, etc

Sunday is here and with it the latest round of daily deals starting at B&H Photo with an 8-pack of colorful 2500 mAh rechargeable NiMH AAs going for $20. Two 4-slot clear cases are also included… Optionally there’s a combo offer, buy these with a 4-slot Watson charger for $28 total… The other two daily deals are a car charging kit and a Sennheiser exercise earphone…

At the Clearance [formerly Sellout] section of the Woot website there are offering various refurbished 11.6-inch Chromebooks for $100 to $110 in “Scratch & Dent” condition. Great if you want to have a “living room” type of a computer that can be used by everyone for casual web action that is more complicated than what a smartphone screen can handle.

At Amazon Germany there are some tech-adjacent items of potential interest in the storage (as in bags and such, not digital memory) kind. Especially if you are the type who likes to double-bag and triple-bag the most fragile or precious or expensive camera gear…

EU: Transcend USB 3.0 card reader (SD, microSD slots) for 7 euro

The best sellers among memory card readers at Amazon Germany at the moment is the black color scheme of the Transcend RDF5 USB3.0 Card Reader which has two slots, one for SD* memory cards, and one for microSD* memory cards.

Pre-orders are available at Adorama and B&H Photo and Amazon herself… Obviously, a compatible Z camera is needed to best utilize this lens πŸ™‚

Ends Thur PM: 30% off Groupon coupon

Valentine’s day special at Groupon Local. Good until the end of Valentine’s Day in the central time zone [that’s FEBR-14-2019], coupon code FLASH gets you 30% off at Groupon Local. Local is where various photo print offerings reside.

Services can “absorb” this type of a discount but thin-margin electronics [eg (Physical) “Goods”] cannot, that’s why the “Goods” coupons are rarely more than 10% off…

The usual restrictions, limitations, etc apply. As always, be sure to read the terms/conditions of the various photo-print offerings since they are structured differently in terms of shipping and fees and such…
