DIY Thrifty Lighting: 16ft Daylight White Flexible Light Strip (cuttable/linkable) for $1.63

And now something from the “$5 Gadget” department. This will definitely not replace a professional $lighting$ system, but if you want to do some DIY lightning, this 16.4 ft Daylight White Flexible Light Strip (cuttable/linkable) is on sale for $1.63 at Amazon by Amazon itself. Limit up to six units per customer. It averages 4 out of 5 based on 49 customer reviews. There are 300 bright white LEDs in the whole spool. See gallery picture #1 over there.

There is a however a catch, it is an ADD-ON item, so you must needs place a $25+ order in order to buy this. Even buying the maximum of six of these is not enough to get you to $25+ [that’s just under $10].

But fear not, there are some used items we mentioned yesterday that can help you get there, $4 lens adapters, and $11 used camera bag, etc ~ look for them in the Used category. A USED APE CPRO342W Metro Collection Medium Camera Case goes for $10.80, while a Fotodiox T to M43rds adapter goes for under $4.

It is the bizareness of Amazon, sometimes lower prices can make you pay more!

UPDATE: AmazonBasics is another good place to find low priced items to get to $25+. Check their AmazonBasics products. Some items:

+ universal smartphone waterproof pouch for $3.36 [not an ADD-ON, so you can buy this on its own]

But that’s not all. Adorama has launched their biggest Flashpoint Studio and Lighting 2-Day Sale yet, with around fifty items participating in the sale.

The new condition Vivitar DF-383 Series 1 Power Zoom AF flash for the Nikon system is on sale for a limited time for $60 with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo. With many B&M camera stores closing, Vivitar brand sales must have been impacted the most since many stores had them as “budget alternatives”, and most people would not line up to buy Vivitar the same way they’d do for Canon and Nikon and such.

The listing is a bit railroad-y, to summarize, you get three Flash Units, three Diffuers (I’m assuming they mean diffusers), a Canon remote trigger, and a USB LED trinket.

6pk of 100 Watt Equivalent LED A21 Light Bulbs for $18 (Daylight) or $19 (Soft White)

If you are looking for 100 Watt Equivalent A21 LED light bulbs, and don’t need to receive them yesterday, Amazon has a pre-order sale on their upcoming 6-packs in the Daylight Color (5000 Kelvin; 1400 lumens) for $18.26, and in the Soft White Color (2700 Kelvin, 1300 lumens) for $19.24. They are rated 15,000 hours per light bulb.

The 2-packs are shipping but the 6-packs are currently in pre-order status. Amazon’s pricing is so crazy that the 2-packs cost more (!) than the 6-packs, eg a 2-pack of 100W Daylight goes for $22.49, but a 6-pack goes for $18.26. You also get to keep the sturdy cardboard container the 6-pack comes in ~ see gallery picture #3 over there.

A “Clear” light bulb option (2700 Kelvin, 1000 lumens) is available in the listing, but it’s neither available at 100W, nor it is on sale on par with the other two options.
