B&H Photo Lighting, Studio, Battery Grips, and such

In this post we round up some of the latest B&H Photo non-camera/non-lens specials. As usual, these are limited time offers of varying expiration dates.

Portable tabletop studio for $35 w/free S&H

The portable tabletop studio in a box that goes by many names is currently offered for $35 with free shipping at Groupon Goods as the Electric Avenue Deluxe Table Top Photo Studio Bundle. It comes with a carrying case that unfolds to become the “studio”, along with two lights and a mini tripod and three different color backgrounds. Some of the other variations come with only the blue background, which is perhaps why this one is “deluxe”. Especially of interest if you have Groupon balance or gift cards or promotions.

These are not scary tripods from the 50s scifi movies! They are the photographer’s friend tripods. B&H Photo has a promotion on 51 different Gitzo tripods and assorted accessories that are eligible for a $150 prepaid VISA gift card via mail-in rebate. Prices range from $237 to $1988 with the rebate price factored in. The PDF of the rebate is available on each eligible product page over there.

If you are okay with mail-in rebates, you can submit a $25 MIR, bringing it down to $129 after MIR. With free expedited shipping. Offer ends by 11:59pm ET on Wednesday or earlier if sold out.

(SOLD OUT) 12oz Lens Shaped Coffee Mug for $8 w/free S&H (limit 5)

Dxo has not yet measured this one 🙂

Eneloop 4-position charger + 4 AAs (K-KJ17MCA4BA) for $18 w/free S&H

And now something for Eneloopy fans. NewEggFlash (NewEgg’s answer to Groupon type sites) is offering the Panasonic K-KJ17MCA4BA eneloop Advanced 4-position Charger & 4-pack AA New 2100 Cycle Rechargeable Batteries for $18 with free shipping and handling. You can buy up to 30 sets at this per unit price. Free shipping whether you buy one item or a gazillion… This goes for $20 at Amazon but if you don’t have Prime, you don’t get free shipping… The NewEggFlash offer ends 12/16/14.

NOTE: if you are speed-reading the specs,the numbers are similar and it may create confusion (it did with me): this is a 2100 cycle (2100 recharges), not a 2100 mah battery set. The batteries are rated 2000 mah (1900 mah minimum)… (yes, I know, mAh, not mah, but it’s faster to type mah – although not so much faster if I have to write a separate sentence talking about it 🙂 )

Fuji X-T1 EC-XT Extended Eye Cup for $15

AmazonBasics camera bags discounted (limit 3 each for on-sale items)

I’m not sure exactly when the discounts happened, but I was just looking at the best selling camera cases at Amazon, and some of their house brand “AmazonBasics” are discounted. Their Sling Backpack goes for $25 each (limit 3), while their top-selling Backpack for SLR/DSLRs goes for $30 (limit 3) and averages 4.6 out of 5 based on over 2300 customer reviews. They come in frustration-free packaging, so no fighting shrink-wraps or other packaging annoyances. Meanwhile their large DSLR gadget bag goes for $21.50 each (limit 3), while their holster goes for $16 each (limit 30).

Speaking of Amazon, if you are planning to place an order of $25 or more ($35+ if you want free shipping as a non-Prime member), you can get this eForCity leather hand grip for $4.20 each (that’s the actual price!). This is part of the Add-On program, so the shopping cart won’t allow you to buy it unless your order total is $25 or more. Regardless of Prime membership status. You can buy as many of these as you like. They average 3.5 out of 5 with nearly 600 customer reviews, so there are trade-offs.
