Refurbished Canon Mirrorless w/1-YR Warranty: M10 w/15-45 and two Grips for $399; M3 with 18-55 and EVF-DC1 EVF for $499

Three of the four refurbished Olympus refills of yesterday continue (the E-M10 II and silver Pen-F) to be in-stock as of the time of writing, and so do many of the Canon Pumpkin Spice Sales.

A couple of them are “take pictures with” kits if you want to try out the Canon Mirrorless system without spending too much money on it. Both the M3 and M10 mirrorless cameras are starting to fade out in new condition from authorized dealers (eg a number of kits are gone from B&H and Adorama).

Both of the kits offered by the Canon USA store come with a full 1-year warranty and they also come with free accessories to make them more tempting…

Canon M10

The refurbished Canon M10 with 15-45mm EF-M in the black color scheme goes for $399 and includes two free BG-E3 grips, one brown, one black. They go for $24 each on their own. You can keep the extra grips but they are also simple enough to sell or trade with photo-friends…

In new condition, this kit goes for $450 at Adorama without the two free BG-E3 grips. So mayhaps the grips are the deciding factor?

Canon M3

Meanwhile the refurbished Canon M3 with 18-55 IS STM EF-M goes for $499 and it has a freebie of its own, the EVF-DC1 Electronic Viewfinder included automatically by Canon’s outlet store while this promotion is running…

In new condition, this kit is not available at B&H and Adorama, but you can get the M3 body only with the usual freebies (NOT the EVF-DC1 EVF) for $429 at Adorama. The EVF-DC1 is a more expensive freebie, it goes for around $200 on its own, and it’s more versatile, you can also use it with the G3 X and G1 X II rawsumers, which by the way are also on sale as part of the Pumpkin Sale.

PS: it appears we have an impromptu theme today, long-ass/long-winded posts 🙂

YMMV: 8% back in eBay Bucks on $50+ items

If I ever use the term “Fall into Savings” please feel free to e-yell at me in the comments! Because every other email I open today says “Fall into Savings” 🙂 Might as well fall into a pumpkin spice latte while eating a pumpkin kringle and wearing harvest-orange head-to-toe 😉

Which brings us to another eBay Bonus Bucks promotion 🙂

Jump in the Bay of Fees! This is YMMV ~ I do not know if eBay offers this to everyone or a subset of their registered users. Good until Saturday at 11:59pm pacific time (9/23/17), you earn 8% eBay Bucks on your purchases with a minimum individual price of $50+.

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.

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 Category posts here…

Monoprice 2-Day coupons: 20% off $200+ (or $5 off $25+)

KEH is giving us three days to think about and plan on their Buy More, Save More Coupon. Monoprice on the other hand is giving us two days, which is still better than one day, but not as good as having the whole weekend to plan ahead, and wrap it around your schedule.

So good until Saturday night, coupon code SAVINGS gets you 20% off orders of $200+ (of eligible products), while coupon code FALL gets you $5 off purchases of $25+ (of eligible products) at the Monoprice website.

But that’s not all, Monoprice also has some doorbusters and such:

+ 12oz Pure Outdoor Vacuum Sealed Narrow-Mouth Water Bottle for $6 with free standard US shipping (no minimum purchase required)

+ IP65 Rugged Power Bank 10050mAh Lithium-ion Cell for $20 with free standard US shipping (no minimum purchase)

+ new release (not eligible for the coupons): second generation MP 22″ IPS FHD Graphic Pen Display for $500

+ TIP: you can guesstimate the age of Monoprice products by their PID (product ID). The smaller/larger the number, the older/newer a product typically is

Nikon Coolpix P900 superzoom for $579 [limit 3]

Another old fashioned camera sale at Amazon! Last week we had the Fuji X-T20 sale, this time it is the new condition Nikon Coolpix P900 superzoom (83x optical zoom) going for $579 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself. Limit up to three per customer. This is not a lightning deal, so expiration date of the offer is unknown. Maybe only the Amazon Bots know when it ends 🙂

Refurbished DJI Phantom 3 Standard with 1-YR Warranty for $329

Some more action at the eBay Deals, this time it is an official manufacturer store, the official DJI eBay store is offering the manufacturer refurbished DJI Phantom 3 Standard with 2.7K Video with a 1-year DJI warranty for $329 with free shipping. Limit up to five units per customer.

Starts 12pm ET Thursday (and repeats until Friday 9AM): “DIY Lightning” FREE to Watch streaming class

“DIY Lighting” is one of those topics where a number of interests converge. If one of your interests converge on this, starting at 12pm ET on Thursday (today, 9/21/17, making sure I know what day and date it is), Kevin Kubota’s DIY Lighting will begin streaming.

The video is 2 hours and 40 minutes long. This is a replay of a previously recorded class. The stream will continue repeating until Friday 11:50am ET, so you have plenty of opportunities to catch the reruns. They don’t have a TV-style schedule of all the reruns. Maybe they need a TV Guide style grid? 🙂 If you like the class and want to keep it, the sale price is $29.

Once upon a time, CreativeLIVE was only streaming the original recordings of live classes, but now they also do promotional re-airings of previous recordings. In fact, judging by the FREE On-Air schedule, most of the free-streaming classes are re-airings: the majority don’t have yellow highlighter “LIVE” designations.

Don’t forget to also pencil-in our previously posted Camera Fast Track schedule if you are interested in the Fuji-san X-T20, Sony a9 or Canon M5/M6 mirrornyets.

Coming later in September: FREE to Watch Online Classes on Sony a9, Fuji X-T20, Canon M5/M6

If you are a fan of online camera classes, good news! According to the schedule of FREE to Watch Classes at Creative LIVE, three camera “Fast Track” classes are coming up as follows:

+ September 25: Canon M5 and M6 mirrorless

+ September 26: Sony A9

+ September 28: Fuji X-T20

As usual, the classes will be free to watch during their promotional airing. You can watch them as much as you want. Once the promotional airing ends (typically 24 hours), then you have to buy them if you want to watch them again ~ or wait for possible future free airings again.

Thursday: YI M1, Usual Camera/Photo accessories

There are over 50 items listed in the Camera & Photo lightning deals (old format) or Full Page format (faster to navigate on Desktop) of the Amazon Gold Box. Due to time constraints I cannot create a detailed listing of them all. The usual assortment of accessories are running throughout the day.

Used Gear RoundUp: Fotodiox Mount Adapters, Nikon 1 Body Case, Lumix Marine, Etc

This begins a block of 14 USED back to back posts. If you are not interested in used, page down further down and down to skip them. All these surfaced while going through the latest additions to the Amazon Warehouse Bargain Bin, a clearance sale of the various used products sold through Warehouse Deals.

All the ones mentioned here are sold by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself. However, Amazon’s listings are open to almost everyone who wants to sell, so when looking at individual listings, make sure you pay attention to who the actual seller(s) are!

And now a mini roundup of even more things from the latest additions to the Warehouse Deals Bargain BIN sale. I am grouping things together to save up on posts, we already have over a dozen of them back to back today 🙂

I already mentioned some of the Fotodiox lens mount adpaters, but they are not all, there’s more Fotodiox Bargain Bin action, here’s a few more of them:

+ USED Like New condition Fotodiox Lens Mount Adapter (Leica R Lenses to Olympus Four Thirds DSLRs for $5

+ USED Good condition Fotodiox Pro Lens Mount Shift Adapter (Leica R SLR Lenses to Fuji X-Series cameras) for $21

+ USED Very Good condition Pixco Mount Adapter (Pentax PK lenses to Minolta MA Cameras) for $9
+ the product name is confusing – check description if you are not familiar with this

+ USED Very Good condition Nikon CB-N2000 Black Leather Body Case for 1-System cameras for $8~

+ USED Very Good condition Panasonic LUMIX DMW-MCFX40 Marine Case for $89

Used Bower 14mm T3.1 Cine for $140 [Sony E/NEX]

Back to the Bargain BIN deep cuts, the Bower Super-Wide 14mm T3.1 Digital Cine Lens for Sony E (NEX), model SLY14VDSE, is available in “USED – Like New” condition, with a more detailed description and a gallery of pictures of the used item, going for $147 with free shipping by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself. This is the only option that’s available at this price!

PS: the one 1-star review there is from someone who received the wrong model.

Used SKB Equipment Case (20 1/2 x 11 1/2 x 7 1/2 inches) with Wheels and Dividers for $58

I just realized that today’s previously posted used deals were all narrow in focus, for a specific camera/lens, or a specific system/combination. So now let’s expand our focus with … wait for it… a more serious camera “bag” 🙂

The SKB Equipment Case (20 1/2 x 11 1/2 x 7 1/2 inches) with Wheels and Dividers is available in “Used – Good” condition (repackaged; with cosmetic damages) for $58~ with free shipping by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself.

This, model 3I-2011-7B-D, goes for three times as much in new condition, eg B&H Photo.

PS: I categorize everything as “camera bags”, whether they are tiny little pouches, or backpacks, or holsters, or shoulder bags, or hipster bags or wheeled cases and so forth. There’s only so much categorization I can use before the poor WordPress database gets overrun with thousands of tags 🙂

Used Sigma EF-610 DG ST Flash for $65 [Pentax only]

I’m trapped at the bottom of the Warehouse Deals Bargain Bin and that’s where I run into something Shiguma!

The Sigma EF-610 DG ST electronic flash for Pentax cameras is available in “USED – Very Good” condition (various cosmetic imperfections; damaged original packaging) going for $65~ with free shipping sold by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself. Only the Pentax version is available there.

Metz mecablitz 52 AF-1 Flash (Canon) for $108 [USED] or $244 [NEW]

The new condition Metz mecablitz 52 AF-1 digital Flash for Canon Cameras is currently on sale in the Canon version only, in NEW CONDITION, for $244~ with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo. The other system options go for more!

But if you are comfortable with used flashes, you can cut the price in half, you can get it in “Used – Very Good” condition with minor cosmetic damage, in original packaging, going for $108~ with free shipping Aamzon Warehouse Daels itself, another of one of the recent Bargain Bin additions.

Used Fuji LH-X70 metal lens hood [for X70] for $27

This is a bit of a deep cut since it only applies to Fuji X70 cameras, but if you have a Fuji X70 RAWsumer, happy birthday ~ the Fujifilm LH-X70 metal lens hood is available in “Used – Like New” condition is damaged original packaging for $27~ with free shipping at Amazon Warehouse Deals.

USED MegaGear “Ever Ready” Cases (E-M1, X-A, X-T, D-Rebs, etc) for $7 to $12

Over 20 different Mega Gear “Ever Ready” and half cases for different cameras are also included in the latest Bargain Bin Clearance Sale. I can’t list them all individually, but here are some of them:

+ white for select Sony a5xxx and NEX-3N with lens for $3

+ for select Fuji X-A and X-M cameras with 16-50 for $7

+ for Olympus E-M1 with 12-40 for $10

+ for Nikon Coolpix P900* for $11

+ for select Fuji X-T series cameras with select zoom lenses for $12

+ for select Canon D-Rebels with 18-135 for $12

+ check the individual product listing, customer reviews, and answered questions to get a feel of what other combinations you may or may not be able to fit in
+ all the ones mentioned above are USED; check the individual listings for condition details

Used Fotodiox Pro Auto Macro Extension Tube (21mm, for Canon EF lenses) for $9

The Bin-a-thon continues, with another Fotodiox product, but this time it’s a macro extension. It is the Fotodiox Pro Auto Macro Extension Tube (21mm, for Canon EF lenses), in “USED – Like NEW” condition (original packaging) going for the very specific price of $9.44 by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself.

Free 2-day shipping for Prime members or with a $25+ order: If you need a little something to get to $25+, check our previous AmazonBasics posts or add … 108 Stash Herbal Tea bags for $5.10 🙂

Used Fotodiox Lens Mount Adapter (Canon EOS Lenses to Leica M cameras) for $16

Like a cat on a viral YouTube video, I keep on digging the Bargain Bin, and this time the paw caught another Fotodiox lens mount adapter. This one lets you mount Canon EOS lenses to Leica M-series cameras, and it goes for $15.50 in “USED – LIKE NEW” condition, sold by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself. There are two listings of this as of the time of writing.

Used Fotodiox Lens Mount Adapter (T-Mount Screw Lenses to M43rds Cameras) for $5

Your Prime membership dollars hard at free 2-day shipping work with this latest Bargain Bin find, it is the “Used – Very Good” with minor cosmetic imperfections in damaged original packaging of the Fotodiox Lens Mount Adapter that lets you use T-Mount (T / T-2) Screw Mount SLR Lenses on Micro Four Thirds camera bodies going for under $5 by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself.

Shhhhh! Don’t tell Amazon, it’s not an ADD-ON item at the moment, so as a Prime member, you can scoop it up with free 2-day shipping.

Used Nikon 70-300mm f4.5-6.3G ED DX non-VR for $120

Continuing to dig into the Bargain Bin, as of the time of writing, there is one listing of the Used Nikon 70-300mm f4.5-6.3G ED DX non-VR lens, in “Used – Like New” condition [no further details given] going for $120~ with free shipping by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself.

This lens currently goes for $350 on its own in new condition, but it’s frequently bundled with more recent Nikon DSLR two lens kit, so the $350 price is a bit misleading in terms of its effective street market price.

Used Ikan FLY-X3-PLUS 3-Axis Gimbal Stabilizer for $111

The new condition Ikan FLY-X3-PLUS 3-Axis Smartphone Gimbal Stabilizer (for GoPRO and assorted other cradles) goes for $199+ in new condition, but if you like to save, you can get it in “Used – Like New” condition in damaged original packaging for the very specific price of $110.49 by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself. There are four separate listings, so this won’t likely sell out quickly.

This is another recent addition to the Warehouse Deals Bargain Bin sale.

Used Fotodiox Pro Lens Mount Adapter (Bronica ETR Lenses to Fuji X Cameras) for $21

Among the latest items featured in the Amazon Warehouse Deals Bargain Bin Sale, you can get in “USED – Like New” condition, in damaged original packaging, the Fotodiox Pro Lens Mount Adapter for Bronica ETR Mount SLR Lenses to Fujifilm X-Series camera bodies for the very specific price of $20.68 with free shipping for Prime members or with a $25+ order.

If you need a little something to get to $25+, check our previous AmazonBasics posts or add … 108 Stash Herbal Tea bags for $5.10 🙂

More Dolica Clip-ON Coupons: Ball Heads, Tripods, Gun Grip, Battery Grips, Etc [updated]

+ items must be sold and shipped by Amazon itself (not 3rd-party sellers)

+ if you are not familiar with how Amazon CLIP-ON coupons work check the first paragraph of the previous post

PS: this is not a Dolica, but I don’t want to create a separate post for it, it is the XShot XSP2 Pocket Camera Extender for $17 after coupon

Dolica GX650B204 Proline GX Series 65 inch Aluminum Tripod and Ball Head Combo for $58 after coupon

Amazon has different kinds of coupons. They have classic coupons that you have to type in the shopping cart, but they also have CLIP-ON COUPONS. You don’t have to type these, you simply click to virtually clip the coupons. This adds the coupon to your Amazon account, so if or when you buy an eligible product, while the coupon promotion is running, you will automatically get the discount.

One of the items that currently has a clip-on coupon is the Dolica GX650B204 Proline GX Series 65 inch Aluminum Tripod and Ball Head Combo. It goes for the very specific price of $62.55. After the $5 off clip-on coupon, it drops to $57.55 with free shipping.

The tripod goes for $55 at Adorama, however, Adorama has mandatory shipping that starts at $9~, so unless you have a way to get free shipping at Adorama, the total price is higher.

eBay User Agreement Update: Sellers may be charged Final Value Fee for eBay sales completed outside eBay

eBay did not wait until Friday night to sneak in announce new updates to their Terms of Service. According to an email sent to its members, the key change to the user agreement is that Sellers who try to complete eBay listing sales outside of eBay (to avoid paying the various eBay fees) may be charged Final Value Fees regardless. Not sure how eBay is going to find out, but that’s what the updated Terms and Conditions say.

ANALYSIS: Perhaps the reason this was announced in the middle of the week is because eBay wants people to read this and stop doing it 🙂

10% off site-wide at AdoramaPIX with coupons

The AdoramaPIX printing labs are closed 9/21 to 9/24/17, but you can still place orders! But their website is still taking orders and as a patience appreciation reward of sorts, they are offering 10% off site-wide on orders placed until 9/24/17 PM with coupon code EMPIX10 or coupon code PXADO10 (if you need multiple orders). Orders placed in the meantime will be processed after 9/24/17 so if you have a time-sensitive order, keep that in mind!

(ENDED) Used Dracast DR-DVT17A Tripod for $78

As of a 9/21/17 AM re-check, this is sold out in USED condition…

We start with the Planet of the Tripods! The Dracast DR-DVT17A tripod is available in “Used – Like New” condition for $78~ with free shipping by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself. It goes for $200 in new condition at Amazon’s. It has no customer reviews.

Wednesday: Calumet, Lightdow, Usual Camera/Photo accessories

There are over 50 items listed in the Camera & Photo lightning deals (old format) or Full Page format (faster to navigate on Desktop) of the Amazon Gold Box. Due to time constraints I cannot create a detailed listing of them all. The usual assortment of accessories are running throughout the day.

NOTE: to simplify editing these daily round-ups, I am removing the text of expired lightning deals. It’s much faster than “expiring” the whole posts and such.

Imported Tamron 24-70 f2.8 Di VC USD for $690 [C/N]

The first generation new condition Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD goes for $1100 at authorized dealers which can include some free accessories such as Adorama.

But if you are a more adventurous shopper, then to the eBay Deals we go, where eBay seller “QuickNDone” (99.9%) is offering the lens in new condition for $690 with free shipping in the Nikon system. Per the listing, the sale ends 9/20/17.

UPDATE: they also offer this in the Canon EF system for the same price.

Further down the product listing, under “Warranty” it says that you get either a 1-Year Tamron International warranty or a 6-Year Tamron Canada warranty, depending on location. They also offer a 30-day return policy.

This is a higher risk than buying in new condition from authorized Tamron USA dealers, that’s one of the reasons for the lower price. I believe “QuickNDone” is a Canadian seller.

Pre-order Lensbaby Sweet 80 Optic for $200

Lensbabies are multiplying like bunnies these days. The new Lensbaby Sweet 80 Optic is available for pre-ordering for $200. This if you already have a compatible Lensbaby “Lens Body”.

If not, fear not, they also have bundles of the Sweet 80 with the Composer Pro II, together available for pre-order for $379 at B&H Photo in your choice of Nikon, Pentax K, Sony A, or Canon in SLR systems, and in your choice of Fuji X, M43rds, Sony E or Samsung NX in mirrorless systems.

Sigma 100-400mm Contemporary + FREE USB Lens Dock and 67mm WR UV filter for $799 [C/N/Si]

It’s Shiguma time! Tamron may have announced an upcoming 100-400mm lens, but you can’t take pictures with a future lens. You can take pictures with an existing lens, which brings us to the new condition Sigma 100-400mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary Lens bundled for FREE with the Sigma USB Lens Dock and a 67mm Sigma WR UV lens filter, all together going for $799 with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo in your choice of Canon, Nikon or Sigma SLR systems.
