Wedn: Sony Cybershot W800 P&S camera (5x optical) for $50

Among the Hump Day Woot Electronics deals of the day is a sale on the new condition Sony Cybershot W800 P&S digital camera (20mp 1/2.3″ CCD, 5x optical zoom (26-130mm eq), Lion, 2.7″ LSD, microSD and MS Duo, etc) in the black color scheme going for $50 with free shipping for Prime members [you have to connect your Woot-Prime accounts ~ a one-time action] or $6 flat for the calendar day for non-members. The camera comes with a 90-day Woot warranty and you can buy up to ten per customer.

That’s $10 per optical zoom unit for those buying The Costco Way πŸ˜‰

The aforementioned sale includes various other assorted electronics including the new condition Force1 U45WF Wi-Fi Camera Drone for $70, a Phantom 2 controller for $40, a couple of Rokus, a couple of gaming accessories, and more. The reason there are multiple items in a daily deal is because sometimes Woot groups together a “Plus” sale and offers it as a daily deal. I don’t know if the Plus sale will continue after the daily deal expires or it will disband or the items will join other sales and such…

If you missed yesterday’s $80 Chromebook, fear not! Woot Computers comes to the rescue with another one, this one is actually $79, it is the refurbished Dell Chromebook 11-3120 Notebook with the Intel N2840 2.16GHz Dual-Core processor, 4GB DDR3 [important these days], 16GB eMMC of on-board storage, 802.11ac, Bluetooth, etc. It comes with a 90-day Woot warranty. Limit up to ten per customer. Of interest if there’s rough usage for the laptop as it is a MIL-STD model.

IMPORTANT: now that Chromebooks have been around for quite a few years, a new twist/risk is raising it’s semi-ugly head. Google does not offer automated OS updates for platforms that are over 6.5 years old. Note that the clock starts ticking on the platform, not the individual laptop. So the clock for this device began ticking when the first Intel N2840 Chromebook came out. This particular model will get auto-updates until June 2020. Details at 11 or more conveniently at the Google Support page for ChromeOS devices πŸ™‚

UPDATE: while we are on the topic of daily deals, one of the Amazon Gold Box deals of the day is yet another Anker sale featuring various charging products: powerbanks, cables, car and wall and wireless chargers…

Minolta InstaPix 2 in 1 Bluetooth Camera and Printer for $110

Nothing lasts forever they say, but in the Walking Dead era, nothing stays dead forever either! Minolta (the brand name at least) is back with a camera!

This time Amazon Germany “defeats” The Mothership as they are having a Prime deal on the new condition Nikon Coolpix P1000 superzoom for the James Bond approved price of 777 euro.

Gallery picture #2 over there has a diagram of the camera to help you get started with it.

Ricoh GR-D III: In-Stock in the EU, US Coming Soon [updated]

We have another in-stock alert, this time on the other side of the pond. The new Ricoh GR-D III big sensor prime is now in-stock for 899 euro at Amazon Germany, sold and shipped by themselves…

UPDATED 3/22/19 at 1am ET: In the US, the camera is now in-stock and ready to ship for its starting price of $900 at Adorama with free expedited shipping … Amazon itself went from a March 22nd estimate to “currently unavailable”… B&H Photo has a March 25 release estimate… As it is often the case with higher-demand lower-availability cameras, there’s often a bit of chaos during the initial release, so dates and estimates may change early and often. A silver lining that it mayhaps is a great choice since others are jumping in early as well πŸ™‚ ..

EU: Used Sony RX10 Mark IV for 1448 euro

Price aside, the Sony RX10 Mark IV mayhaps is the closest to a “do it all Paul” type of a camera with a 1″ sensor, a solid superzoom range with OIS, fast autofocus, 4K video, etc, etc, etc. But the price is quite high for this model. If you are tempted but you are fond of buying used, as of the time of writing, the German Amazon Warehouse Deals has it in USED condition for 1448 euro. Note however that this is repackaged and the battery is missing [uses typical Sony batteries] and has small scratches…

It is a small sensor but RAW is better than not having RAW for those who like to squeeze more out of their camera.

It is available for pre-ordering for $448 at Adorama and B&H Photo and Amazon itself with a early November 8 release estimate.

EU: Sony RX10 First Generation for 650 euro

The Sony RX10 Mark IV is the leader of the RX10 series but with a price that is not that far from 2000 (Euro or Dollars), one who loves the idea of the RX10* models but has a fiscally strict spouse-CFO may be interested in the original model, the first generation RX10, it is currently on sale in new condition for 650 euro by Amazon Germany itself with a maximum of two units per Amazon account at the sale price.

One could buy almost three of these for the price of one Mark IV with its 4K and bigger lens and speed-demon auto-focus and such…
