Wedn: More Storage sales, Sylvania, Fire HD 8, Etc

We start the Wednesday round-up with a reminder that the two 16mm lenses at the Adorama daily deals continue until April 5 in 2021, so you have plenty of time to read lens reviews, comparisons and put samples and real-world pictures under the pixel-peeping-microscope…

Today is World Back Up Day which explains the previously mentioned B&H Photo daily deals that feature internal and external hard drives from various manufacturers…

The storage sale also happens today, March 31st (Wednesday), and headlines the Amazon Gold Box dailies, featuring 26 options, internal and external HDDs, and SSDs, from WD, Sandisk, Samsung, G-Tech, Toshiba, and Crucial. Too many of them to list here individually. Up to three per item per customer cart…

Also part of the Wednesday Gold Box is a Sylvania smart lighting sale featuring 14 options from Sylvania, including their LEDvance line. Lots of A19 options…

One more Amazon deal du jour, their Fire HD8 tablet (32GB storage, 2GB RAM, microSD, with Ads) for $60, up to two per customer… These are part of on-going Amazon Hardware Deals which are increasing (in option) by the hour…

Sigma 16mm f1.4 DC DN Contemporary for $319 [E]

Also part of the Adorama dailies is another lens, I’m creating a separate post because it gets very confusing to put two lens names in a blog-post name, especially if they are made by a different manufacturer.

The lens is the new condition Sigma 16mm f1.4 DC DN Contemporiaries going for $319 in Sony E… As the “DC” in the model name suggests, this is an APS-C lens…

The other options (M43rds, Canon EF-M, Leica L) are not part of the sale (they go for $400).

The Adorama daily deals refresh at 10am ET every day, so this is good until Saturday at 10am ET, but because of the Passover holiday, this offer may repeat again [this is only my speculation]…

Rokinon 16mm T2.2 Cinema [m43] for $179 [also: Profoto, Pelican, Etc]

My oh my! Adorama is starting the Passover Holiday daily deals with a DOUBLE LENS DAY!

+ Rokinon 16mm T2.2 Cine for M43rds only for $179

+ Sigma 16mm f1.4 DC DN Contemporary for $319 in Sony E

+ Pelican 1607 Protector Case with Pick N Pluck Foam for $312

+ Profoto Wide Lens for A1 Studio Light for $10

+ the refresh time for Adorama daily deals is always 10am ET, not midnight

+ because it’s the holiday season, some of the daily deals may renew every 24 hours; however, I am only speculating, I’m not sure they will renew or not; only time will tell [cue continent supergroup song]…

Among the Friday Best Buy daily deals we have a sale on Sunpak 12″ ring light kits, two options, $60 or $80… With the usual/customary Shutterfly coupon promo thing…

At the Friday NewEgg dailies we find the Ryzen 5 2600 desktop processor for $180 after promo code, a 64GB Team microSDXC for $7, a 2TB WD Black P10 Game portable external HDD for $65 after promo code, a 50pk of KN-95 masks for $22, and more…

No, you don’t get a free p-bottle with purchase but among the Friday Gold Box deals they have a sale on their 10-inch Fire HD tablets from $108 to $168, with the $108 version having 64GB on-board [with microSD slot], 1080p, USB-C, 2GB RAM, and “with Ads”… The $168 is with a case and 15W faster charger…

And now something for Prime members, good until 3/27/21, if you purchase $30+ in Woot shirts, you can add to your order a tumbler for just $1 more. A lot of the tumbler options have already sold out, so don’t sleep on this! Details at the Woot forums

UPDATE: among the Woot daily deals there’s a scratch-n-dent 11.6″ Samsung Chromebook (model XE303C12) going for $90 with a 90-day Woot warranty. Note that this does not get automatic Chrome OS updates (expired July 2018) and has 2GB RAM and 16GB on-board (and microSD) and Exynos processor and full-size USB ports. This was my first Chromebook, and as of three years ago it was already struggling with some of the busier and more demanding websites especially when using multiple tabs. So this can be useful for uni-taskers, eg tech-averse person using it for email and one-page-at-a-time browsing, but anything more demanding, you are better off with newer models…

Mon: imported grey-market Nikon D5600 body for $600

Heads Up: B&H Photo Closing for Passover (March 26 to April 4)

If you have any time-sensitive orders from B&H Photo, make sure you place your orders now!

B&H will be closing for the annual Passover Holiday from March 26 until April 4. Online orders will also be unavailable during some of those days.

Of online ordering interest, orders placed before 12pm ET on March 25 will be processed before the holiday closing. Orders placed after that, will get processed when they re-open on Monday April 5 in 2021.

But as usual, please don’t wait until 11:59am ET on March 25 to place your order as unpredictable things may delay the processing of the order (weather, traffic jams, technical difficulties, power outages, etc)…

Heads Up: Nikon D5600 among the Monday daily deals

This is a heads up alert! Among the teasers for the Monday 3/22/21 daily deals at the NewEgg website they show the Nikon D5600. The teasers over there do not point to actual product pages, so I do not know which kit will be offered and who will be the seller.

The daily deals at NewEgg go live at 12am pacific time, aka 3am eastern time (on Monday 3/22/21 in our case)…

A reasonable guess is that it might be the standard “with 18-55” kit, and as far as the seller, a number of the cameras offered in the NewEgg dailies are international/grey-market. Lower chances it might be refurbished or new (USA warranty) or open-box.

But of course I’m only guessing since the teaser does not show more, and I don’t remember if the D5600 was previously offered as a daily deal at NewEgg. If it had and I remembered, there could be reasonable chances that it is recurring. Sort of like the refurbished Sony H300 superzoom for $85 by a marketplace seller that returns every few days/weeks…

Hubsan ZINO Pro Plus Standard Version Ultra HD 4K Quadcopter for $299

The latest incarnation of the Adorama daily deals (changes Monday 10am ET or earlier if sold out) is the new condition Hubsan ZINO Pro Plus Standard Version Ultra HD 4K Quadcopter going for $299 with free US shipping…

I love how Hubsan managed to stick in all the buzzwords in the product name, “Ultra”, “Pro”, “Plus” but despite all the buzzwords it is also Standard πŸ˜‰

An Intel i5, a couple of ASUS Vivobooks, a 2TB Toshiba Canvio for $54, and more can be found at the NewEgg daily deals

Among the Sunday Kindle daily deals of the Amazon USA Gold Box there are potentially two books of quasi-related interest:

+ Chasing the Light: Writing, Directing, and Surviving Platoon, Midnight Express, Scarface, Salvador, and the Movie Game from Oliver Stone for $5

+ Process: The Writing Lives of Great Authors for $1
+ if you are a member of Kindle Unlimited, you can read this for free

Also inside the Amazon Gold Box is the most exciting sale ever, RX Bars on sale, all kinds, variety packs and single-flavor, minis and regular size, old flavors and new! As a minimum you must needs try the Chocolate-Sea-Salt and the Maple… The Minis are great for portion control IF you can stop at one a time πŸ™‚

Note however that I haven’t tried any of their Oat/Oatmeal products, I have no clue how they taste, YMMV on those πŸ™‚

The current Adorama daily deal (changes Sunday 10am ET nuTime) is the new condition WiseLift WLT400 Rolling work station Swivel Table with USB Ports and Drink Holder going for $300 with free US shipping… Of course there’s a drink holder, not sure though if it fits the 64oz 711 99c Pseudo-Colas πŸ™‚

Last but not least at the Meh daily deal you get a 2-pack of Gabba Goods 1080p webcams for $29 with free US shipping for MEh-meh-ME-members…

UPDATE: if you want a touchless thermometer to add your “COVIDalia Collection”, as part of the Amazon “Savings and Sales” they have this new condition Touchless Thermometer going for $10, fulfilled by Amazon, with up to two per customer at the sale price… It averages 4.4 out of 5 based on over 8000 customer ratings as of the time of writing of this blog post… Per the customer reviews and the Q&A, this uses two AAA batteries, so a big plus for those with a mountain of rechargeables πŸ™‚

UPDATE #2: in a rarity for the Woot daily deals the headliner is an Apple sale that is new condition, not refurbished! The sale featured 17 items, mostly Macbooks with a couple of MacMinis. The price range of the sale is $470 to $1730… They come with a 1-year Apple warranty…

Magazines for $4.80/yr such as Outdoor Photographer

The latest Weeknd sale at DiscountMags has a $4.80 per magazine per year theme, and this includes exactly one photography title, Outdoor Photographer. This is a print magazine delivered to your door in the US by mail… As you can guess, the mailing costs are cost-prohibitive for them to mail these outside the US at $4.80 per year… No auto-renewal…

Various other “six degrees of separation from photography” magazines are included…

PS: the reason I’m only mentioning DiscountMags and not others is that I’ve used DiscountMags a few times without issue…

PS2: not the current four photography titles that are in rotation at DiscountMags, but a few other magazines offered by DiscountMags are digital copies via Zinio. This is marked in the box and individual listing of each magazine (unless you are speed reading at blazing speeds). Zinio has different business practices than DiscountMags. Zinio is very much auto-renewal all the way to the bank…

PS3: the times they are a-changing once again! Don’t forget to adjust your non-automatically-updated clocks on Sunday morning after sunrise…

They have two flavor options for your freebie, Dark or Caramel… As you may recall, a few months ago Coca Cola paid $5 billion to buy British coffee chain Costa Coffee, so of course there’s a union of the two towers… Wait until they come up with Coca Cola Cappuccino and Coca Cola Latte πŸ˜‰ It will make you crave Crystal Pepsi πŸ˜‰

If you have time and bandwidth to spare, starting on Sunday March 7 at 11:30am eastern time (aka New York time) is the 4th annual B&H Photo Depth of Field Conference, Day #1 of 2. Each day has a schedule of speakers who will be talking about photography-related things, one at a time. This is what I call the “main stage”.

In addition to the main stage, thanks to the miracles and wonders of Zoom, they have three different virtual ballrooms, each one having its own day-long schedule running in parallel.

Gear-heads may be very interested in the “Grand Ballroom” where the talk focuses on cameras and lenses including Nikon Z-series, Sony Alpha 1 and A7s III, Canon R5 and RF/EF lenses, and more…

More gear-talk but not camera/lens-centric can be found in the “Crystal Ballroom”…

Then to the “B&H Expert Room” you may want to head on if you are fond of Q&A on various photo-related and tech-related topics and such…

And if you want more, in the runup to the show B&H had previously scheduled various webinars and you can rewatch them now or in the future for free.

You can also find the stream of the “main stage” YouTube-embedded below. If you feel like joining the live chat, you have to head on over to the YouTube live-streaming page…

So to summarize, you have four options to watch at any time. The “main stage” YouTube-live stream [embedded-above] and three Zoom seminars [think of this a little bit like watching a presentation at a manufacturer’s booth]
