The HP Envy 5540 Wireless All-in-One Photo Printer is currently on sale for $65 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself with a limit of two units per customer. This is a sale, like the Canon 50mm f1.2L going for $1149, not a lightning deal.
The Fujifilm INSTAX Mini Instant Film Twin Pack (a total of 20 sheets) is currently on sale for $13.44 at Amazon by Amazon itself. This is currently restricted to Prime members. Limit up to twenty packs per customer. The current shipping estimate is 2-5 weeks. This is not a lightning deal.
A bit of a memory card doorbuster (since it gets free shipping), it is the 32GB Lexar Professional Class 10 UHS-I U1 633x SDHC Memory Card (Up to 95MB/s Read, Up to 20MB/s Write) going for $10 with free shipping at Adorama. You can buy as many as you like at this price… For more action, check their New Years Sale…
NOTE: this is a Four Thirds DSLR lens; NOT a micro four thirds lens for the M43 mirrorless system.
Of interest to Four Thirds DSLR photographers and adapter-erers, B&H Photo has the Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 35-100mm f2 (Four Thirds) in Used Condition for $1000 in 8+ condition and $1100 in 9 condition and $1150 in 9+ condition. The new condition price is $1950 at B&H.
A new week is here, and so are new coupons at Walgreens Photo. Coupon code DECORATE50 gets you 50% off 8×10-inch Canvas Prints & Wood Panels until Wednesday at 11:59pm Central time. Sometimes these get extended until Saturday night, but it’s not guaranteed. The usual terms apply, free store pick-up, otherwise you pay S&H. Limit five uses per customer during the promotion. The bottom of the page over there has the coupon details – in fineprint because the internet “paper” can’t fit it all 🙂
Surprise! An actual lens on …sale! The Canon 50mm f1.2 L is currently on sale, in new condition, for $1149 with free shipping, at Amazon by Amazon itself. Limit up to five per customer at this point. This is not a lightning deal, so it’s either an actual sale an error or an internal (3rd-party sellers) or external (other websites/retailers) price-match.
Tripod time now, the Vanguard Abeo Plus 324CT Carbon Fiber Tripod with TBH-100 Ball Head is on sale for $300 with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo as a limited time offer.

Has anyone written this science fiction story yet? All the Tripods and Monopods become sentient at once and rebel against humanity, demanding proper care, not just thrown at the bottom of the trunk and pulled out only in case of photography-emergencies? 🙂
Which brings us to the Prima Photo Aluminum Monopod on sale for $30 with free shipping at B&H Photo, available in four different color schemes. This is a limited time sale, expiration date unknown (to me).
Speaking of storage-related items, Amazon itself offers this 128GB SanDisk CZ48 USB 3.0 Flash drive (model SDCZ48-128G-U46) for the very specific price of $24.31. This is not a lightning deal.
Speaking of Amazon, if you are close to the $25+/$49+ limits, $2 is all it takes to get the new condition “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” DVD. Not sure how they can afford to sell it for $2 and not even have a quantity-limit per customer. But what do I know? I’m just a blogflower 😉
It’s Shiguma time now, the Sigma APO Teleconverter 1.4x EX DG is on sale for $199 with free expedited shipping (it’s a small thing after all) in the Canon and Nikon systems (sorry, the Sigma SA is not on-sale last-remaining-Sigma-SA-photographer) at B&H Photo. This is a limited time offer but an expiration date is not mentioned.
A total of 14 Sony cameras, a mix of E-mount iLCs and RX fixed-lens cameras are bundled with gift cards with amounts ranging from $50 to $500 at B&H Photo. The Sony a7S II body only is the one getting the $500 gift card. The a6300 and a couple of RX models are getting $200 gift cards, while the rest are getting either $50 or $100 free B&H gift cards.
Prime your wallet canons because a new lens is now in-stock and shipping for the Canon EF system, it is the Zeiss Milvus 135mm f/2 ZE Lens going for $2199 with free expedited shipping from B&H Photo. The Nikon version is not in-stock yet…
UPDATE: Offer ends Monday night…

You can buy up to 30 12-packs at this price… These are also eligible for “Subscribe and Save” discounts…
More camera-bag action at Adorama, it’s the Tenba Messenger Small Camera Bag for SLR Camera Body with 2-3 Lens Kit, Black going for $50 with free shipping. This too is good until 1/7/17 or earlier if sold out.
All the new camera gear procured during the 2016 holidays demand (yes, I am a DSLR Whisperer, the DSLRs tell me so), demand I say, new bags. In which case, Adorama is offering the Timbuk2 Snoop Camera Messenger Bag, Small, Cordura Black for $79 with free 2-day shipping until 1/7/17 or earlier if sold out.
Happy GNU Year! It’s 2018 already, time sure does fly fast 🙂 We start with a tripod, the Induro GIT204 Grand Series 2 Stealth Carbon Fiber Tripod, 4 Sections is on sale for $349 with free expedited shipping at Adorama until 1/5/17.
PS: it will take a few days until I get used to typing “17” and “2017”, so you may see some “16” and “2016” expiration dates in new posts posted in 2017.
The Sony 18-105mm F4.0 G OSS (E-mount) lens currently goes for $598 at authorized dealers, but as of the time of writing, you can get it for this price bundled with a $50 Adorama gift certificate at Adorama… Alternately they have a bundle with free accessories (including Corel software) but no $50 gift card…
Likewise, Adorama is bundling a $50 Adorama gift certificate with the silver Sony a6000 body only while still selling it at the authorized dealer price of $398.
And now a mini storage round-up. If you need a 500GB external hard drive that comes with its own carrying case, B&H Photo is offering the 500GB HGST Touro S Ultra-Portable External Hard Drive (Gold) plus an HGST carrying case for $34 with free shipping and handling. Limit up to four per customer. This is a limited time sale (expiration date not mentioned).

The convention takes places January 26-30 in 2017 in the Ohio/Kentucky area (Cincinnati, OH/Covington, KY). Calipari not included!
The prices of USB flash drives continue to drop, for example, for $50 with free shipping you can get this 256GB Sandisk Ultra USB 3.0 Flash Drive (SDCZ48-256G-A46) at Amazon by Amazon itself with a limit of up to three per customer. This is not a lightning deal.
This inaugural and rather lackluster 1-day sale ended…
Doorbuster time! Adorama is offering the Vivitar 3-Piece 77mm UV/CPL/ND Filter Kit for $8 with free shipping. This is a while supplies last promotion.
If you are buying holiday gifts, or if you are buying items for the 2016 Tax Year, or if you simply like to receive items as quickly as possible, over 1800 products are currently eligible for the B&H Photo Free Next Day Delivery promotion. Click on the product categories of interest (eg Photo) or click on the tabs of the brands of interest (Canon, Fuji, Nikon, Panasonic, Rokinon, etc). This is not just big ticket items, even some $20 accessories are eligible.
Canon and Nikon demand top dollar for their f2.8 zooms, but Shiguma offers photographers a more budget-friendly option with the $400 17-50mm f2.8 EX DC OS HSM (which even gets some free accessories at Adorama or 4% promotional rewards at B&H Photo).
But if you are comfortable with used, you can get the Nikon version in “Used – Very Good” condition for $286~ at Amazon Warehouse Deals. Make sure you page down the listings to find the ones sold by Amazon Warehouse Deals (Amazon’s used sales arm). 3rd-party sellers sell them for slightly less but unless you are familiar or very comfortable with those sellers, you are better off paying a little bit more to get them from Amazon Warehouse Deals itself.
As of 1/1/17 this party is over:
Zoom-zoom! The Panasonic ZS50 travel-zoom is available for $250 with free shipping at Costco for members, or $262.50 for non-members. This sale ends 12/31/16 per the site over there.
The refurbished sale ended but it appears to be recurring at B&H, so it may return in the future…
On the other hand, if you prefer a lower price, you can get it refurbished for $200 with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo until Wednesday at 11:59pm ET. This is one of their After-Holiday Deal Zone specials.
This promotion expired for 2016…
