Nikon D3200 2-Lens VR kit (18-55, 55-200) for $400

The Nikon D3200 is a stubborn DSLR. It refuses to go away. It even finds itself in the Black Friday spotlight. The Nikon D3200 two-lens DX VR kit (18-55, 55-200) is now on sale for $400 with frees shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself (limit 5) and Adorama and B&H Photo et al.

NOTE: the newer Nikon D3300 two-lens VR kit will be offered for $500 during Black Friday (currently goes for $600). So there’s a $100 trade-off price-wise between the D3200 and D3300 two-lens VR kits.

Another decision point is whether you need the two DX VR lenses or not. You can get the D3200 body only in refurbished condition with a 90 day Nikon warranty for $245 at Adorama.

Another data point, you can get the D3200 two-lens kit with the non-VR lenses, in manufacturer refurbished condition for $300 by BuyDig on eBay.

2TB Seagate Backup Plus Slim USB 3.0 Portable External HDD for $70 (many colors)

With holiday travel and more photo-ops, more storage may be needed. If so, help is on the way at the Trending eBay Deals, where NewEgg’s eBay store is offering the new condition 2TB Seagate Backup Plus Slim USB 3.0 Portable External HDD for $70 with free shipping. It is available in four different colors with a limit of five per customer. If you are fond of color-coded back-ups, it’s a party 🙂 Over 1200 units got sold so far.

This is poor blog, can’t be buying things by the ton like Consumer Reports just for testing purposes 🙂
