Monday: Rokinon 50mm T1.5 Cine, 12.9″ iPad PRO (2020), Etc

And just like that Monday is here once again and with it we have a new set of B&H Photo daily deals good until 11:59pm ET (or earlier if sold out). And it’s a LENS DAY, hooray-hooray:

+ Rokinon 50mm T1.4 AS DS Cine DS manual focus lens for $379 in your choice of Canon EF or Nikon F or Sony E system or Micro 4/3rds

+ 12.9″ iPad Pro (Early 2020, Wi-Fi Only) for $949 (256GB on-board) or $1149 (512GB on-board), two color options each
+ also 256GB available as Wifi + Cellular for $1099

+ GVM Professional Video Carbon Fiber Motorized Camera Slider (32″) for $240

+ also Senal studio headphones for $45 and Denon In/Out speakers pair for $50 and AmazFit GTS smartwatches for $95 (six options)

+ flash deal: RucPac Solo Camera Strap for $20

+ next flash deal: Savage LiteShaper Flexible LED Panel

UPDATE: various Vivo standing desk / office related things and the refurbished Kindle (2019 model, 10th generation, latest model) for $40 are among the Monday Woot daily deals… If you love reading text-only books (eg fiction, or text-only non-fiction), an e-reader is a must have. Especially if you love reading in-bed or before bed time, because they are front-lit and black-n-white like paper, so they don’t affect your brain/sleep the way smartphones/tablets do, which are back-lit, so the light shines on your face instead… Or something like that…

Panasonic G100 w/12-32 & Panasonic Battery/Charger & Panasonic Tripod Grip for $750

Currently the new condition Panasonic G100 with 12-32mm goes for $700 or $750 with the Panasonic Tripod Grip. These at authorized dealers such as B&H Photo which also include the Panasonic Battery/Charger bundle for FREE…

But if you want even more free accessories and Corel software, you can sift through the many options at Adorama

UPDATE: at the Adorama daily deals [change Monday 10am ET] they have NiSi filters for select cameras, namely the Ricoh GR3, the Sony RX100 VI and VII and the Fuji X100 (original, S, T, V)… There’s also a MSI 34″ gaming monitor for $360…

Sunday: Neewer Battery Grip (BG-E8 replacement), Etc

At the rest of the Sunday daily deals, among the Best Buy offerings they have the 128GB Sandisk Ultra Plus microSDXC with full-size adapter for $25, a Microsoft full-size bluetooth keyboard for $40, a 114″ outdoor projection screen for $180, an Acer 28″ UKD monitor and a 75″ LG UHD television set… And a two-in-one coffee machine, one side is a conventional filter-basket electric coffee maker and the other side is a Keurig K-cup brewer. So you have choices and you can avoid a lot of intra-family debates and arguments about which one to get. This is for $100 by Keurig herself…

At the Woot website there’s a refurbished Pixels sale starting at $100 for the Pixel 2 and going up to $230 for the Pixel 3 XL… Me, personally, I’m holding on to my Nexus 😉

Among the Amazon Gold Box offers there’s a COVIDalia sale that includes this 4-in-1 infrared thermometer for $18. This is a more compact design, not the Star Trek phaser style one… It takes two AAA batteries [not included]…
