Wedn: Sandisk Extreme, Pelican, Lume Cube, Etc [CORRECTED]

CORRECTED: the B&H daily deals link has been corrected. Thanks to one of our readers for the email alert! If you are wondering why this is happening, it is a case of the “sticky cut and paste” ~ I think I copied the new link but for some reason the copy failed (typically I hit the wrong letter or control key) and whatever was previously in the cut/paste buffer remains. And if I don’t check/notice it, then it gets posted. Then on following days, I copied the previous day’s link, so it starts propagating…

And just like that, Wednesday is here again and with-it it-brings six new B&H daily deals good until 11:59pm ET (or earlier if sold out):

For those in the EU, the Amazon Germany Gold Bote is headlined by a sale of Viewsonic projectors ranging from 599 to 1079 euro-dollars [euro in long :)].

Thursday: Zen Camera by David Ulrich for $2 [ebook]

Good until Thursday 6/4/20 at 11:59pm pacific time [I almost forgot to post it!], as one of the Amazon Kindle daily deals, you can get the 224-page Kindle ebook “Zen Camera” by David Ulrich for $1.99 but you also receive a $0.30 store credit towards future purchases of “Great on Kindle” ebooks. The store credit is applied automatically and expires automatically if not used.

The ebook averages 4.5 out of 5 based on 74 customer reviews. The price was right so I just purchased it but obviously I can’t read it and digest it and review it before the expiration time. I’m not a 32-core system after all, I’m just a Celeron πŸ™‚

As the Zen in the title hints at, this is a blend of photography and (Westernized) Zen, so prepare for some spiritual materialism πŸ˜‰

If you want to take a shot at the book but you are not sure whether it’s something you’d like, and you are going to have the time in the next few days to dive into it, note that Amazon offers refunds of ebooks within a few days after purchase. Locate the purchase under amazon.com/myk [myk = my kindle] and request a refund.I think it’s seven days but I’m not 100% certain.
