Chinese New Year Sales

Gong Xi Fa Cai! To celebrate Chinese New Year, today, Tuesday February 5 in 2019, various retailers in Asia, including the western-facing retailers (those that are setup/organized to ship products world-wide) are having various sales, including GearBest and Ali Express. Look also for Valentine’s specials, and for limited time coupons or free or faster shipping upgrades…

Note however that because of the holidays, shipments will take a bit longer than usual to arrive, so if you need something to arrive to your location quickly, pay attention to the estimates or buy locally…

Fuji 10-24mm f4 OIS with choice of extras for $749

Gong hei fat choi but red lenses are hard to find, so we make do with silver and black…

If you are a fan of the Fuji X-system and you are just getting tired of prime lenses [MEOW!!?!] the Fuji XF 10-24mm f4 OIS lens is currently on sale for $749 at authorized dealers and it is bundled with a variety of lens-a-holic free accessories at Adorama (filter set, trinkets, etc), while B&H Photo goes the Hoya freebie route with two 72mm Hoyas (Haze, CP)… Amazon itself does not offer any freebies [other than the usual 5% statement credit with a Prime credit card] but various 3rd-party sellers offer their own bundles of lens-y joy…

Photoolex WFC-05 Wireless Flash Trigger set (Canon) for $9 after coupon [limited quantity]

As of the time of writing, according to the shopping cart, there are 18 units of these available… There is a $18 off clip-on coupon on the listing of this Photoolex WFC-05 1/8000s 2.4G Wireless Flash Trigger set for Canon cameras. The price of the item is $27~, so after you clip the clip-on coupon [you must be logged on to your Amazon account so it will add the coupon to your account for current or future use while the coupon is alive], the price drops to around $9. Not bad!

Here’s an annotated screenshot with all the interesting parts to pay attention to if you are not familiar with Amazon’s clip-on coupons…

2pk generic Nikon 52mm lens caps for under $3

If you are planning a larger Amazon order, or if you want to add something to get to the free shipping tier, as of the time of writing, there is a 2pk of generic Nikon 52mm lens caps going for $2.72. You can buy as many as you like. They average 4.5 out of 5 based on over 880 customer reviews, so they are not a fly-by-night generic item. The brand name is “South Bay Camera”. There are many bays in the world, and there’s always south relative to the north ๐Ÿ™‚

Tue: Rokinon 35mm T1.5 Cine DS for $399 [C/E/m43], and more

They are on different listings at the moment.

But this is also sale at Amazon USA where it goes for $38 with free shipping. You can buy as many as you like at this price.

These are organic or manufacturer-initiated sales, they are not lightning deals, so expiration time is unknown (to me)…

We’ve certainly come a long way in storage prices. I remember paying more for Smartmedia memory card a few camera cycles ago ^_^

REI is not a photography store but it has products that can help you with your outdoor and indoor adventures…

REI being a hippie collective, you only pay for membership once, and then you are a member of the cult collective for a whole lifetime…

This rate is for the first year (12 months = 365 days). Alternately you can sign up for their beta month-to-month option that is $29 per month.

NOTE that most but not all classes are available through the Season Pass. Their FAQ pages have detailed exclusions

Wedn: Tamron 150-600/5-6.3 Di VC [C/N] for $779 {also Dracast, Atomos, Surface} [updated]

One of the benefits of the Canon-Nikon systems is the abundance of third-party lenses from the Japanese trio (TamTokSig), offering more affordable alternatives to the “canon” system lenses. Which brings us to the Wednesday B&H Photo daily deals, headlined by the new condition Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD lens offered for $779 with free shipping in your choice of Canon or Nikon systems…

PS: this is certified to be a Tamron lens {that’s because I often confuse/mistype Tamron and Tokina ~ they share four of the six letters in their respective names}

Also participating in the deals du jour is the Dracast LED500 Pro Bi-Color LED Light with V-Mount Battery Plate for $199 and three bundles of the Atomos Shogun Inferno 7″ ranging from $995 to $1195…

UPDATE: speaking of daily deals, at Best Buy they are offering the new condition 12.3″ Microsoft Surface PRO (4GB RAM, 128GB SSD) with a keyboard included for $649 with free shipping or store pickup… There are enough Surface products now (and that’s before the foldables and the smartphone-type-things arrive) to warrant a visit to the Wikipedia page to sort them all out. We’ve already had six generations of the tablet, and two of each of the laptop and the “Book” and the Studio and three of the Surface Hub…

EU: 64GB Sandisk Extreme SDXC (V30, U3) for 15 euro

While price-checking yesterday’s post, a bang for the buck option surfaced, it’s part of a Sandisk sale at Amazon Germany {not a lightning deal, so expiration time unknown) that has the new condition 64GB Sandisk Extreme SDXC card going for 15 euro and you can buy as many as you like. This is NOT a PRO version but it is V30, U3, C10, etc.

Once again, in a turn of conventional wisdom, Amazon Germany defeats the Amazon USA website where it goes for just under $20; however the 128GB goes for $35 in the USA Amazon but 36 euro at Amazon Allemagne…

EU: 256GB Sandisk Extreme PRO V30 SDXC for 60 euro

This is not a lightning deal, so I have no clue when the sale ends, but as of the time of writing, Amazon Germany is offering the new condition 256GB Sandisk Extreme PRO SDXC card (U3, V30, C10, up to 95MB/s) for 60 euro with free shipping in Germany. Limit up to five per customer at the sale price. This price currently soundly defeats the other storage options in this line…

In contrast this card goes for $88 at Amazon USA

UPDATE: this is part of a Sandisk sale (not a lightning deal) at Amazon Germany that also has the 512GB version of the PRO card going for 170 euro {that’s the premium of being the highest capacity available).

50% off Lindsay Adler classes at CL

For a limited time only, CreativeLIVE is offering 50% off Lindsay Adler classes. The price you see is the price you pay. Sale prices start at $14 and go up. Around forty classes are available from Ms Adler and participate in this sale! There’s a few short free ones as well in the second page of the search results…

Computers are also in at the Woot daily deals but of the refurbished kind with the HP Elitebook in “Computers” and the Samsung S8 and S8+ duo [soon to be S-triplets {or more} with the launch of the S10 allegedly] in “Electronics”…

Speaking of Woot and computers there’s a few of them available as part of an open-box sale running until February 1st (or earlier for any that sell out – and they do sell out ahead of time as you can see over there)…

128GB Lexar USB-C/USB-A Flash Drive Cable for $19 w/FS

If you have embraced USB-C, Adorama is offering for a limited time (as a “snapshot deal”) the new condition 128GB Lexar JumpDrive C20c for $19 with free shipping. You can buy as many as you like. One side is USB-C (obviously), the other size is full size USB. This is a storage cable, not just a flash stick, so you have a “3 in 1” type of a usage for it. It supports USB 3.1 and promises UP TO 150MB/s read and UP TO 60MB/s write speeds. No coupon, no rebate, just add to le shopping cart and proceed to checkout!

PS: there is a bit of red on it, so it could color-match a Chinese New Year gift bundle ๐Ÿ™‚

PS2: speaking of Adorama, they are running a winter sale on various Canon C-series Cinema cameras

Tuesday (EU): Sony a7s for 1358, a7r II for 1729

A duo of Sony E-system full frames can be found in the Tuesday JAN-29-2019 Amazon Germany Gold Box, both body-onlies, with the a7s going for 1358 euro, and the a7r II going for 1729 euro… Today’s sales also include the Motorola G6 Plus (4Gb RAM, 64GB onboard) going for 239 euro. You definitely needs a Wiki page to sort out the G6 models, let alone the whole Moto G line

The choices now in full frame mirrorless have exploded after Photokina 2018, with Canon and Nikon throwing their own hats in the ring, and a new ragtag alliance of three launching Micro Four L ๐Ÿ˜‰

Monday: Gitzo 100-Year Anniversary Tripod, iPads, Surface, Etc

Another week is upon us [if your calendaring philosophy calls for Monday to be the start of a new week] and we have a new set of B&H Photo daily deals as follows:

+ GITZO 100-Year Anniversary Edition Tripod with Ball Head for $800

+ Apple iPad PRO of the 12.9-inch kind, with Wifi and 4G [I cringe at the thought of new products coming in 2019 with various faux-5G designations] with a yuge 512GB on-board storage, this being the mid-2017 model, for $799 in three color schemes

+ TP-Link smarthome thing and smart light bulb

The OS Fairness Doctrine [not to be confused with Doctorate] dictates competing OS deals, so the main Woot website is offering a variety of refurbished Surface 3 PRO tablet bundles from $480 to $780 [with 90-day Woot warranty], with various refurbished Samsung 4K OLED at Woot::Electronics, and Dell Optiplexes at Woot::Computers, and a refurb 10.5″ iPad PRO for $400 at Sellout/Clearance…

For European shoppers, Amazon Germany woke up from its snowy slumber with a variety of offers including:

Speaking of Amazon, while browsing around in their Kindle ebook pages, you may see an offer for a $5 ebook credit when you spend $20+ in Kindle ebooks between January 22-28 in 2019. This offers requires a login to see, and after you login, you have to activate it before it goes live. Thus, no direct link to the offer, but if you start browsing around the Kindle pages, you may see it. I don’t know if it is targeted or not…

Look for this mini banner on top of Kindle-related Amazon product pages:

[ENDED] EU: 128GB Sandisk Extreme PRO SDXC (95, U3, V30) for 35 Euro [limit five]

As of a JAN-25-2019 re-check [yes, we are just eleven months away from Christmas!], the sale ended, the price is back up to 40 euro… But the Amazon USA Lenovo 2-in-1 Chromebook that was also mentioned in this sprawling post continues to be good as of this update…

Once upon a time I had the original Fire tablet, which, tech-trivia factoid, had the same outer shell as the Blackberry Playbook. Back when Blackberry made …tablets!?!?!?
