“Nikon Df: The Expanded Guide” for $12 [paperback]

Back to the Gold Box we go where Nikon Df fans (or Df-curious photographers) can get the paperback edition of the “Nikon Df (Expanded Guides)” by Jon Snow (oops, Jon Sparks) for $12.29, with free Prime shipping or with a $25+ order.

This has 240 pages, and it has “Look Inside” activated, so when you click on the main picture in the gallery, it will take you on a wild ride inside the book. This is handy because you can jump all over the book, it can give you a much better feel for the book than just the first few pages that we get with the Kindle sample.

Digital Photo PRO or Videomaker for $5 per magazine per year

If you are interested in either “Digital Photo PRO” or “Videomaker”, this is a good weekend to buy them through the DiscountMags weekend sale ending on Monday night. The theme of this weekend is $5 per magazine per year. Both of those typically go for more than $5.

Two more photography magazines are at their “regular” sale price of $5 per magazine per year: “Outdoor Photographer” and “Digital Photo” (not PRO). The usual assortment of “six degrees of photographic separation” magazines are available, such as fashion, sports, nature, tech (eg Wired), Bridal Guide, Martha Stewart Weddings, and more.

These are printed magazines delivered glossily to US addresses. If a magazine is a digital offer, it says so in its box and mentions it is delivered by Zinio.

As usual, you can sign up for up to three years per magazine. These are good for new subscribers, existing subscribers renewing, or gifts for other people.

Prime Reading for FREE: Shutterbug and CR November 2017 e-issues

If you are a Prime member, one of the Prime Benefits is the Prime Reading program that lets you read for free from a list of roughly 1000 ebooks. You can read as much as you like but you can only have ten items checked out at any one time, so if you are getting close to ten, some strategy may be needed – mix some quick reads with some long-running reads so you are not out of picks. But even if you are, you can return something and re-borrow it again a few days later [assuming it doesn’t leave].

One of the lesser known benefits of Prime Reading is that single issues of magazines are also available. Among the latest additions, of potential photography interest, they have:

+ Shutterbug (November 2017)

+ Consumer Reports (November 2017)

+ and the usual “six degrees of separation” from photography: fashion, sports, nature, etc

As with all Netflix-style services, you can only read as long as you are a paying member. If you cancel the Prime membership, or return a book/magazine, you can no longer read it. However, there is no time limit on how long you can keep it checked out. I’ve found things I had checked out for over a year. No late library fees here 🙂

When logged in to your account, each magazine tells you which devices (in your account) it can be read from. For magazines, it is typically iOS and Android only, so the biggest reading screens you can get are probably iPad PROs and 2-in-1 Chromebooks with Google Play. Or that giant old 18.4″ Samsung Galaxy View.

Prime Reading FREE to Read Latest Issues include Shutterbug

If you are a Prime member, one of the many Prime Benefits is the “Prime Reading” feature that allows you to read a number of items for FREE. This includes e-books (around 1000 options), along with some comic books and single magazine issues (typically the latest issue).

Among the latest Free to Read Magazines is the September 2017 issue of Shutterbug, along with the August 2017 issue of Consumer Reports and the August 2017 issue of WIRED.

You can read as many eligible items as you want with Prime Reading, however, you can only have ten items checked out at a time. So if you are interested in a lot of things, get a mix of things you will read quickly and things you’ll read slowly, so your ten spots won’t be taken over by slow-reading material. Of course you can still return and re-pick them at any time.

Once you borrow an item, you can keep it as long as you want. While you keep it, it will take one of your ten slots.
