CORRECTION
The previous two links to the NewEgg dailies in previous posts were pointing to Best Buy instead. They have now been corrected. This is another iteration of the “sticky cut and paste problem”. Similar to Cixin Liu’s “Three Body Problem” πŸ˜‰

Basically the “cut” of the intended link does not work for some reason, and when you “paste”, you paste the previously copied link. When you are not totally concentrated in the HTML code, you do not notice it.

Then the next time, you simply “cut and paste” the previous NewEgg link, and once again, if you are not totally concentrated in the HTML code, you do not notice it.

And it continues until one of the readers, or until I notice it πŸ™‚

The rental period (travel) does not have to start now, just the booking.

But wait, there’s more at the Adorama daily deals, and with this offer, you can zoom to the stars, you may even be able to photograph the Big Bang ~ if you attach a series of telescopes and time-machines to the end of the lens πŸ˜‰

Okay, silliness aside, the offer is the manufacturer refurbished Nikon Coolpix P1000 superzoom going for $697 with free US shipping and a 90-day Nikon USA warranty. This camera has an insane 125x optical zoom ratio up to 3000mm eq ~ can your new iPhone 12 PRO MAX XL do this? πŸ™‚

The offers end on Thursday 10/15/20 at 10am eastern or earlier for any that may sell out ahead of its designated expiration time…

And among the Amazon USA Gold Box daily deals, it’s a sale of various name-brand Fire TVs from Toshiba, and Insignia…

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.

Meanwhile at the Woot daily deals there’s scratch and dent iPhone X [can’t use plural because that’s a different model {DAILY REMINDER: do not put a final “s” in your product’s model name}], Amazon Fire tablets, and a 17.3″ inch HP laptop. In the era of big-screen smartphones and tablets and 2-in-1s, a 17.3-inch laptop feels like you are using an …aircraft carrier!

Refurbished Nikon P1000 superzoom for $770 [ends Tue 10am ET]

It’s a camera day at the Adorama daily deal good until Tuesday 9/15/20 at 10am ET [or earlier if sold out] you can get the manufacturer refurbished Nikon P1000 superzoom for $770 with free US shipping and a 90-day Nikon USA warranty…

With a crazy 125x optical zoom that goes up to 3000mm this is perhaps in a separate category, telescope-zoom or humble-zoom? πŸ™‚

Fuji XP-130 element-proof P&S digital camera for $100

It’s a digital camera day at the Adorama daily deal, good until Saturday at 10am eastern time you can get the new condition Fuji XP-130 element-proof P&S digital camera in the yellow or blue or black color scheme for $100 with free US shipping.

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]:

+ Impact 5-in-1 Collapsible Oval Reflector with Solid Gold (42×72″) for $50
+ why buy 5 when you buy 5-in-1? πŸ™‚

+ Porta Brace AH-2.5 Padded Audio Harness for $109

+ Ikan Carbon Fiber Camera Slider with 19mm Track Rails (31″) for $129
+ unless you a surgeon or a dentist as your camera man, you need this πŸ˜‰

+ Gabor Fixed Wall Mount for 42-65″ Flat Panel Screens for $20
