Zoom-zoom! Costco is offering the new condition Panasonic ZS60 superzoom (30x optical) with a camera case and 16GB memory card for $300 with free shipping at the Costco website. Non-members can buy it too but may have to pay a 5% surcharge. I was surprised that not every non-legally-restricted Costco non-member purchase gets charged the 5% surcharge. I bought gift cards and shoes and did not get a 5% surcharge. Unless there is the “Shoe Costco Surcharge Prohibition Act of 1965” that prohibits shoe surcharges 😉
Sale ends 6/25/17, or at least the instant savings promotion that creates this price ends.
Bag the bag! The Lowepro Photo Hatchback Series BP 250 AW II Backpack is on sale for the very specific price of $73.37 with free expedited shipping (bags ship compressed, making faster shipping more affordable after all) at B&H Photo… For more action, check their Latest Featured Sales…
If you have the LG G5 smartphone with its modular/add-on design, NewEgg is currently offering the new condition LG CAM Plus (model CBG-700.AUSASV) for $8. This is the camera grip/holder module. It is not a camera in itself. Shipping is $2 unless your order total at NewEgg is $25+, in which case, shipping is free. It is like Amazon’s Add-ON program 🙂
Speaking of which, it goes for $14+ and Prime eligible at Amazon’s.
It looks like we may have a pattern here. The ebay coupon expired last night, and lo and behold, a new eBay Bucks promotion is running today. So they may be alternating? I’ll pay attention to see if this is an on-going pattern…
This is YMMV ~ I do not know if eBay offers this to everyone or a subset of their registered users. Good until Friday 3am eastern (6/23/17), you earn eBay Bucks on your purchases depending on the item purchase price. Items over $50 get 10% eBay Bucks, items between $25 to $50 get 8%, and items under $25 get 6%.
First you have to manually activate the offer from the eBay email or your eBay messages (if invited/selected to participate). Some exclusions apply as usual and the maximum rewards you can earn is $100 per transaction, and $500 during the promotional period.
One great way to take advantage of this promotion is the new condition factory unlocked Samsung Galaxy S8+ (Midnight Black) offered for $700 with free shipping by Samsung’s official eBay store. No contract, no obligation to any carrier, and you can use it on all four major US carriers (Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T, Verizon) and their assorted sub-carriers (MetroPCS, Cricket, etc) and MVNOs (Page, Republic, TPO, etc). 10% of $700 = $70 in eBay Bucks to be spent in future eBay purchases!
A good place to look for ideas are the eBay Deals along with the Trending Deals (shows only 100 trending deals, less overwhelming to look at than their main deals page). There’s also a dedicated search box there that searches only the Deals, not everything else on eBay.
Another way to look for ideas is our eBay Archive posts.
Zoom-zoom now! It’s Shiguma time! The Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary Lens is on sale for a limited time for $989 with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo in the Canon, Nikon and Sigma SLR systems. You also get 4% promotional rewards which are just under $40 in future purchases at B&H. The offer ends 6/30/17.
Zeiss, Zeiss, Baby! I’m surprised Zeiss hasn’t hired Vanilla Ice yet for an April Fool’s Day “Zeiss Zeiss Baby” music video 🙂 While we are waiting for that though, Zeiss has revealed a new Milvus lens, the 35mm f/1.4, available for pre-order for $1999 with a late August 2017 release estimate at B&H Photo in the Canon EF (ZE) and Nikon F (ZF.2) systems.
This has been added to the new Cameras and Lenses of 2017 tracking page. This tracks the more interesting items, eg P&S 1/2.x” digital cameras are not included.

The Epson SureColor P600 Wide Format Inkjet Photo Printer can be yours for $610 after a $150 mail-in rebate (check by the mail) at B&H Photo and Adorama. You have to do the “add to cart” song-and-dance to see the sale price.
The Epson SureColor P400 Wide Format Printer can be yours for $479 after a $100 mail-in rebate (check in the mail) at B&H Photo and Adorama (it is the second rebate from the two shown over there). You have to do the “add to cart” song-and-dance to see the sale price.

Neewer is not the only one making 3rd-party flashes 🙂 The Phottix Mitros+ TTL Transceiver Flash is on sale for a limited time for $299 with expedited shipping in the Canon, Nikon, and Sony systems at B&H Photo as one of their many Featured Sales…
The Panasonic TS30 elementproof P&S digital camera goes for $138 at authorized dealers, and while keeping the same price, Adorama is including some freebies with them, the Corel software bundle (five titles including AfterShot PRO 2, Paintshop PRO X9, VideoStudio 9), a 16GB memory card, a camera case, and the obligatory cleaning kit. These bundles are available in the black, blue or red color schemes as part of the latest Adorama specials.
Since we mentioned Apple Macbooks earlier on, the fairness doctrine dictates that we must needs also mention Windows, so to Adorama we head to where one of the hot Dell laptops is on sale, the Dell XPS 13.3″ Quad HD+ InfinityEdge Touch Notebook goes for $1099 with free shipping for a limited time. This is model XPS9360-4841SLV with the Core i7-7500U 2.7GHz processor, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, 13.3″ UltraSharp QHD+ resolution (3200×1800), SD card reader, Win 10 Home, etc.

This is more of a modest utilitarian doorbuster of sorts, B&H Photo is offering the new condition 32GB Lexar CompactFlash Memory Card Professional (800x UDMA 7, model LCF32GCRBNA800) for $30 with free shipping, with a limit of up to twenty units per customer during this limited time sale… For more action, check their latest featured sales…
Speaking of Lexar, on the SD front, they are offering the 128GB Lexar Professional 1000x UHS-II SDXC Memory Card (Class 10, UHS Speed Class 3, model LSD128CRBNA1000) for $86 with free expedited shipping with a limit of up to twenty units per customer.
The Fuji X-T2 body only goes for $1600 on its own [see Stock Status Tracker], but for a limited time, the body only is bundled with the official Fuji Battery Grip for just $100 more. On top of that, Adorama is bundling extra freebies, a 32GB Lexar SD card, a camera bag, the Corel software bundle (three of the five software titles are photo/video related), and a few more accessotrinkets (card wallet, card reader, cleaning kit). All this for $1696 with free expedited shipping.
Don’t you forget about us sing the RAWsumers, and to those cameras we go where the Sony RX 100 Mark V has three freebies at B&H Photo while selling at the authorized dealer price of $998: a $50 B&H Photo gift card, a 32GB Sandisk Extreme SDHC memory card, and a Ruggard camera case.
This was on sale for $329 last week, but as of the time of writing, it has dropped further, now going for $299…
If the GoPro HERO4 Black is the action camera you want of the ever-increasing number of options out there, B&H Photo has a GoPro HERO4 Black bundle for $299 with free expedited shipping. You get the standard kit plus these two free items: the GoPro LCD Touch BacPac (goes for $80 on its own) and GoPro Dual Battery Charger with Battery (goes for $49 on its own). It is a two-slot battery charger and comes with an additional battery in the box. So between the standard kit and the charger kit, you have two batteries.
Back to the eBay Deals with a de-UPC printer. That’s a printer whose UPC was removed from the box but it is otherwise unused/unopened. Most likely printers purchased using the Canon PIXMA mail-in rebates but not needed by their original owners and sold to others.
So if you don’t want to deal with the Canon PIXMA mail-in rebates and AMEX gift cards, you can get a new condition de-UPC’ed Canon Pixma PRO 10 printer for $340 with free shipping by eBay seller “Electronic City Inc” (99.3%, New York). Limit five per buyer.
This is a higher risk than buying new condition with UPC intact from authorized dealers, so it’s up to you to decide where you draw the line on risk and convenience (not having to deal with mail-in rebates (MIR) and/or gift cards). But if you prefer the lower risk approach, you can get it for $450 after a $250 MIR (prepaid AMEX GC) at B&H Photo.
B&H Photo is having a limited time sale on select Induro Carbon Fiber Tripods with four models participating, with prices ranging from $412~ to $562~ with free shipping… For more action, check their latest Featured sales…
This is not a coupon promotion but an old fashioned sale. Good until 6/26/2017, 11:59 PM CST, Dell Refurbished (Dell’s business unit that focuses on reselling off-lease computers) is having a sale on Dell Latitude E5430 Laptops with prices starting at $179, and many under $229. The price you see is the price you pay and they are not eligible for additional coupon discounts. Free ground US shipping.
To the eBay Deals we go where the official Best Buy eBay store is offering the new condition Olympus TG-870 waterproof P&S camera for $250 with free shipping with a limit of up to three per customer. Its regular price is $280.
Speaking of eBay, continuing is the 8GB Sandisk Ultra Class 10 SDHC card, model SDSDUN-008G-G46, for $7 with free shipping from Ritz Camera’s eBay store (98.9%, New Jersey).

This promotion is good for new users of Google Express only, not existing customers. Groupon has a new groupon where you Pay $15, and Get $40 to Spend through Google Express. Google Express is a local delivery service that lets you buy various products from local B&M retailers. Of camera and photo interest, Fry’s, Costco, Target, Staples and more are participating in the program.
This offer is good where Google Express is operating locally. Not every item offered by a retailer may be available for purchase through Google Express. You can check using the Google Express website and your zipcode.
You can buy one Groupon of this for you, and another one as a gift for another person.
UPDATE: of Costco interest, this Kirkland tea with near-cult following is actually available as one 100-pack for $14 thru Google Express, while the Costco website only offers two 100-packs for $30.89.
UPDATE: OOPS! This expires Tuesday night, not Monday 🙂
eBay is back with another coupon promotion and this new one is running until June 20 at 11:59pm pacific time. Coupon code PSUMMER20 gets you 20% off select products priced $25+ individually from 40 different eBay sellers, including Beach Camera, Ritz Cameras, eBags, Sky Mall, Samsonite, and more. You can find details on the promotion and eligible sellers at the Promotional page over there.
The maximum discount with the coupon is $50, meaning items priced over $250 will get a flat $50 off discount (20% of $250) instead of 20% off the total amount. You can use the categories on the left hand side over there to filter by categories.
PS: CORRECTED: the coupon expires June 20, not June 209 🙂

Staples is trying to make their website a destination by offering a variety of varying doorbusters. The Lakers are not doing so well, so they need to find other ways to bring people to their brand 😉 Which brings us to a clearance doorbuster, the Lowepro Adventura 140 Camera Case is offered for $10 each. Free store pickup. It is only sold online, not through their B&M stores. Free shipping depends on your order total and Rewards membership level/status. Their shopping cart will tell you.
Another limited time offer is running at B&H Photo, the new condition Gitzo G-2272M Rationnelle Magnesium 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head with Quick Release, model G2272M, is on sale for $200 with free expedited shipping as another one of the latest B&H Featured Sales. Expiration date is unspecified.

This is model ME253LL/A with 3.7 GHz Intel Xeon E5 Quad-Core and 12GB RAM and 256GB PCIe and Dual AMD FirePro D300 GPUs (2 x 2GB) and Six Thunderbolt 2 Ports, and support for up to three 4K displays, and more…

The Samyang 12mm f/2.0 NCS CS in the black color scheme for Micro Four Thirds in on sale for a limited time for $299 with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo. Prices vary by color and mount, unlike Sigma, Tamron and Tokina lenses that are typically uniform per mount, even sometimes when they differ with regards to OS.
On the other hand, if you are comfortable with used lenses that have known issues, you can get the Nikon version of the Tamron 16-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD MACRO Zoom Lens for $309 plus shipping (starts at $8+) in “Used – Fair” condition at Adorama.
Make sure you understand the used condition designations at Adorama and read the details in the listing of each used item. This particular lens is described as “PLEASE NOTE: Lens does not auto focus; image quality will; be affected; cosmetic condition is V; may have other issues”. So fans of manual focusing 🙂
If any of these make you uncomfortable, do not buy! The new condition goes for $500 and bundled with freebies.
It’s Tamron time! Good until 11:59pm ET tonight, the Tamron 16-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD MACRO lens in the Canon, Nikon and Sony A DSLR systems is bundled with 4% promotional rewards (about $20 to be used in future B&H purchases) along with a FREE 67mm Hoya UV Haze NXT HMC Filter for $499 with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo.

At Adorama, you a 32GB SD card, camera bag, card reader, memory card wallet, cleaning kit, and the good old Corel software bundle (which includes Aftershot PRO 2, PSP X9, and VideoStudio 9).
At both places, you can optionally increase the original warranty from 1-year to 3-years by filing paperwork with Panasonic. Because the more computers we have, the more paperwork we need 🙂
UPDATE: but wait, there’s more! Ritz Cameras thru Amazon (Prime eligible) has its own bundle for $998, a 64GB Transcend SDXC card, extra Polaroid battery, extra charger, 72-inch tripod, Polaroid Slave Flash, 58mm UV filter, and assorted accessotrinkets (= accessories + trinkets).
If you are a Prime member and pay with either the Prime Store Credit card or the Amazon Chase VISA credit card, you automatically earn 5% back as a statement credit. This applies to everything at Amazon, but I don’t want to repeat it in every post, so I randomly mention it as a reminder FIY 🙂
Speaking of video, B&H Photo is offering the Sony PXW-FS5 XDCAM & BP-U60 Battery Kit for $4749 after a $1000 mail-in rebate (MIR). Considering the value of the rebate, you may want to make multiple copies of everything, maybe even have it notarized? 🙂 This is a mail-in cash rebate, not gift cards. No PO Boxes.
Good until Monday 11:59pm ET, B&H Photo is running an SLR Magic lens sale for the E-mount including the SLR Magic Cine 50mm f/1.1 Lens for $279 with free expedited shipping.

However, at the moment, Adorama is bundling this lens with a FREE tripod. And it’s not a toy tripod! It is the Manfrotto MT055XPRO3 Aluminum 3 Section Tripod with Horizontal Column (19.84lbs Load Capacity, 66.93″ Maximum Height). The tripod is included in the product bundle above, you see it mentioned over there while this promotion is running.
On the other hand, if you have enough tripods to re-enact the Planet of the Tripods movie, and if you prefer general purpose accessories, Adorama has an accessory bundle offer with these freebies: 82mm lens filters kit, lens shade, cleaning kit, Corel software bundle (five software titles), and other assorted lens-accessories.
But if you instead want to optimize for a lower price, and you don’t need any extra accessories, and you are comfortable with imported grey-market lenses that come with a 1-year seller warranty instead of a 1-year Canon USA warranty, you can get this lens in new condition but imported grey-market for the very specific price of $1591 with free shipping by 6ave on eBay (99.1%, New Jersey). Limit five per customer. Over 200 units got sold so far from this listing.

It is the Pure Outdoor Coffee and Tea Set for $20 with free standard US Shipping when you use Promo Code BIG20 on 6/19/17. Price before coupon is $25.
A carrying case with padded inserts is included, which you can repurpose for camera accessories 🙂
