Surprise, surprise, it’s a CAMERA DAY at the Best Buy daily deals for Tuesday October 6 of the Crazy Year of 2020, the headliner is the Melisandre-red [okay, it’s some kind of a plum color scheme] refurbished Nikon Coolpix B500 superzoom, model 26507B, going for $150. This is a AA-powered camera (four of them) with a 40x optical zoom, something a smartphone can only do through tortured algorithms πŸ˜‰

Among the rest of the Best Buy daily deals there’s the 64GB Sandisk Nintendo Switch microSDXC for $19, a 10-inch Aluratek touch-screen digital picture frame [that looks a bit like the abandoned Windows Phone UI] for $140, and a 48-pack of Insignia single-use AA batteries for $12, a mere 4 batteries per $1.

Friday: refurbished Canon SX720 HS compact-superzoom (40x) w/1yr warranty for $150

It’s not often we find a digital camera in the daily deals, but for Friday 7/17/20 we do so at the B&H daily deals [CORRECTED LINK]. It is red and refurbished and superzoom. It is the Canon SX720 HS going for $150. It comes with a 1-year parts and labor warranty per the listing [under “Specifications”]…

It has a 40x optical zoom and it is a DiGiC 6 era camera. As the “HS” in the model name suggests, this is a CMOS camera, while the “IS” for those too young to have lived through CCD sensor P&S Canon cameras, was used for CCD Powershots.

It is fascinating how camera size is relative. A compact superzoom like this, yet one of the reviewers complained it was “too heavy” and “bulky”. Mayhaps they didn’t try the focal range with DSLR lenses? πŸ™‚

New round of B&H daily deals and this being FriYAY, they last until Saturday at 11:59pm ET, but as usual B&H does not accept orders Friday PM through Saturday PM [check their website for exact times]:

Among the other daily deals there’s a $150 adjustable standing-desk converter, “phone soaps” with UV-C sanitizer [if the hand sanitizer gels don’t kill us, the UV radiation will finish the job!], and various power-related things… And an 800 lumen Insignia rechargeable flashlight for $29 [of potential light painting interest]…

Among the other daily deals, Woot has Amazon devices, a 21.5″ HP Elite Display, and MSI laptops and desktops among others… The Amazon mothership has Amazon devices on sale as well golf-related accessories… And at NEWEGG’s there’s a sexy 14″ ASUS Zenbook for $890, an i7-9700 Coffee Lake for $320, and the usual assortment of computer accessories…

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™‚
