In a galaxy not so far away, Samsung has a sale on their NX3000 digital cameras, with the price being $280 for the with 20-50mm kit and $300 for the with 16-50mm kit. These are available in multiple colors, with a limit of two per color per customer. You can see all color/lens options at Amazon by Amazon itself. These are new condition.
This daily deal expired (and partially sold out, with only one of the NX cameras “surviving” the full 24 hours).
Samsung is back with another NX-series APS-C camera, their new 28-megapixel backlit CMOS NX-500 comes with a 16-50mm kit lens and your choice of three colors, and promise of up to 9fps at full resolution, the new NX AF System III and more. Shockingly though, no TouchWiz (yet?) It is available for pre-order at this price at Adorama and B&H Photo and Amazon itself.
As of a 2/6/15 recheck, the price increased to $130…
The current eBay Deals featured deal counters the RAW and megapixel explosion with a 4TB SAMSUNG D3 Station 3.5″ Desktop External Hard Drive, USB 3.0, model STSHX-D401TDB, offered for $100 with free shipping by NewEgg’s eBay store with a limit of five per customer. As of the time of writing, over 2300 units sold. I suspect this may not last long (but this is only a guess).

Three days ago we spotted the unusual Black Friday Deals preorders (! [preorders of existing products; not unreleased products]) at Amazon but it turns out, this is not an Amazon “innovation” but a Samsung innovation. Similar Black Friday HDTV Deal “pre-orders” can be found at Samsung’s own website and at B&H Photo.
So far this consists of Samsung HDTVs. I don’t know if it will expand to digital cameras this year or in future years. But it is a new trend to watch as retailers are perhaps trying to zero in on shoppers who want good deals but don’t want the hassle of brick and mortar lines or deal-chasing on the internets when they can instead spend Thanksgiving weekend getting grilled by the Mother In Law
