I didn’t find a promotion-wide expiration date, but the prices of the individual products are good until 11/1/14, so we can perhaps assume that’s the expiration date of this promotion.

In a separate promotion, you can get the VF-4 viewfinder for $100 if you purchase it together with the E-P5 body only. This VF4 promotion ends 10/25/14.

In yet another promotion, Olympus offers free 2-day shipping with orders of $50 or more. This shipping promotion ends 10/23/14.

Then, as the activation page explains: “you place an order online over $270 (not including sales tax and shipping) and $27 will automatically be deducted from your order total in your shopping cart.”… It looks like more retailers are dabbling more in “personalized” (unique) coupon codes instead of general purpose coupons…

DSLR action returns to the eBay Deals where authorized Nikon Dealer “BuyDig” (the online discount imprint of Beach Camera) is offering the manufacturer refurbished Nikon D3200 body only for $300 with free shipping with limit five per buyer.

AmazonBasics camera bags discounted (limit 3 each for on-sale items)

I’m not sure exactly when the discounts happened, but I was just looking at the best selling camera cases at Amazon, and some of their house brand “AmazonBasics” are discounted. Their Sling Backpack goes for $25 each (limit 3), while their top-selling Backpack for SLR/DSLRs goes for $30 (limit 3) and averages 4.6 out of 5 based on over 2300 customer reviews. They come in frustration-free packaging, so no fighting shrink-wraps or other packaging annoyances. Meanwhile their large DSLR gadget bag goes for $21.50 each (limit 3), while their holster goes for $16 each (limit 30).

Speaking of Amazon, if you are planning to place an order of $25 or more ($35+ if you want free shipping as a non-Prime member), you can get this eForCity leather hand grip for $4.20 each (that’s the actual price!). This is part of the Add-On program, so the shopping cart won’t allow you to buy it unless your order total is $25 or more. Regardless of Prime membership status. You can buy as many of these as you like. They average 3.5 out of 5 with nearly 600 customer reviews, so there are trade-offs.

Refurbished GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition for $290 [limit 5]

Sony A77 II and A58 combined purchase discounts with select Lenses [and coupons]

A new variation of the combined purchase instant rebates is running for a couple of Sony Alpha pellicle-mirror dSLRs. You put one DSLR and one lens in your shopping cart, you enter the coupon code, and when you reach the checkout page, there is a combined purchase discount of $100 (either the 55-200 or 55-300 lenses) or $200 (the 18-135mm lens). This is a one-to-one promotion. If you put two lenses and/or two DSLRs and enter their coupons, you only get one discount. But you can buy them in separate transactions (I think – I obviously can’t buy them to test those type of limits).

So the eligible DSLRs for this promotion are the Sony a77 Mark II (either body only or with 16-50mm f2.8), and the A58 with 18-55mm kit. The coupon codes are listed over there. I won’t listen here because sometimes they change them, and I have no way of knowing that they changed.

The page does not specify an expiration date, so they are good until the coupon codes no longer work. Speaking of which, here is a screenshot crop example with the A58 w/18-55 and the 18-135mm added to the shopping cart. What you see is the top right corner of the Amazon Checkout page:

Google Chromecast down to $28

The Google Chromecast is on sale again, the lowest price as far as I can recall, $28 for the new condition. The Staples website (free ship-to-store or free shipping for Rewards members).

This is also priced-matched at Amazon.com (free shipping for Prime or with $35+ order)… This offers a number of ways to get your photographs, galleries, slideshows and videos to the big screen…

Sony HDR-AS30V action camera for $220

The Sony HDR-AS30V action camera is currently on sale for $220 with free shipping at B&H Photo. To see the sale price, you must needs add it to the shopping cart, and then login with your B&H Photo account. They also have other bundles if interested in specific accessories or uses (eg bicycle bundle)… Or for $250 you can get it with a bonus waterproof case (SPK-AS1) and replacement door (AKA-RD1) and 16GB microSD from BuyDig.

Back to the eBay Deals party we go where the new condition Imported (Gray/Grey Market) Canon 5D Mark III body only is offered for $2560 with free shipping by eBay seller “getitdigital” (99.3%). Note this does NOT come with a Canon USA warranty. The seller (GetItDigital) offers their own one year warranty for this camera.

(ENDED) Camera & Photo Lightning Deals (Tue): Samsung NX30, NX3000, Sony NEX-6 again (?)

This bonus round of Amazon Camera and Photo Lightning Deals ended. The deals were worthy of their name this time! The NEX-6 w/16-50mm finally went live and it was at an even better price, $425! It was 97% claimed. So it turned out to be a good idea to wait for the Lightning Deal to finally materialize (in retrospect, it’s easy to say that).

The Samsung NX30 w/18-35 (so easy to mistype 18-55) went for $680 and was 100% claimed, while the NX3000 w/16-50mm went for $425 and was 53% claimed. Wouldn’t it be nice if every lightning deal round was filled with cameras like that? :)… Expired offers after the jump for the deal historians…

The bottom of the page says this is covered by the Photo-4-Now return policy, which we can assume means that Photo-4-Now is the seller.

New twist: Prime Members get 30 minute Early Access to some (but not all) Amazon Lightning Deals

Amazon revealed a new twist today, a new feature for Prime members. For some of the items in the traditional Gold Box Lightning Deals, Amazon Prime members will get access to them 30 minutes before the general population does. It’s easier to explain with an example, look at the annotated screenshot crop of the Ape camera case below (click on the picture or open in new tab/window to see it at full size)…

amazon_prime_early_access_deals

As you can see, the Ape case has the “Prime Early Access Deal” line. Only Lightning Deals that show this line are going to be available to Prime members for 30 minutes early. All the other items will go live at the same time for everybody. Here is an annotated screenshot example below of Upcoming Lightning Deals, some are Prime Early Access, some are not (click on the picture or open in new tab/window to see it at full size)…

(SOLD OUT) 13.3″ MacBookPro Model ME864LZ/A for $1000

Limit five per customer. It has 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD, 2560 x 1600, Mac OS X v10.9 Mavericks, 3.5 lbs, etc… As with all eBay Deals, this is a limited time offer…

Sony NEX-6L/B (w/16-50) for $500 now (limit 2) [update: got removed from Lightning Deals]

UPDATE (Monday at 10:23am ET): it looks like the oomans at Amazon intervened and the NEX-6 with 16-50mm was removed from the Lightning Deals, perhaps because the current price would be same or better than what the lightning deal would have been. So no more indecision, the Sony NEX-6L/B kit (NEX-6 with 16-50mm) is on sale for $500 with free shipping, with a limit of two per shopping cart at Amazon by Amazon herself. This may be a price-match of someone else’s sale promotion…

No longer: Which further complicates things for people who are trying to decide, because starting at 10am eastern on Monday, this kit is going to be an Amazon Camera & Photo Lightning Deal. I have no idea what the lightning deal price is going to be, or how many they will have. So while we typically have a “Strategery” section, in this case, we have a “I have no idea what to say” section 🙂

(ENDED) Camera & Photo Lightning Deals (Mon): ePhoto, Ape, Tenba, Polaroid, etc

This round ended. Check back on Mondays and Fridays for more semi-unpredictable Amazon Camera and Photo Lightning Deals… Expired items after the jump

The main categories will be redirected to their equivalent ones here.

If you previously bookmarked any old posts from the old TypePad blog or you followed a link to them, and they do not work, add “1” in your url ( cameradeals —> cameradeals1 ) and you will get to the old posts. The old TypePad blog will no longer be updated.
