32GB Samsung PRO+ microSD for $27 w/free S&H

Best Buy has this for $40 as a daily deal but their price is destroyed by a sale from the Beach Camera group of companies. “This” refers to the 32GB Samsung PRO+ microSDHC memory card, model MB-MD32DA/AM going for $27 with free shipping by Beach through Amazon and Buydig directly and by BuyDIG’s eBay store.

Meanwhile they have the 64GB version for $49 with free shipping.

(ENDED) Nikon D850 User Auction ends 3:32pm ET [$2950 as of OP]

This auction ended for $2950 with 62 bids placed…

A quick look at the Stock Status Tracker reminded us that today is the last day of the user-listed Nikon D850 body only auction. As of the time of writing (aka OP as in Original Post as in 10:26am ET), the price is $2950 with 62 bids. Shipping is an extra $13~.

Another Nikon D850 eBay Auction by User: $2800 but ends Monday

Another development from the update of the Stock Status Tracker is another “sale by user” for the Nikon D850 body only. It is in USED condition and an Auction-style eBay Listing. It is currently going for $2800 with 59 bids. It ships from North Carolina for $13, from a 100% eBay user (91 transactions). The auction ends on Monday at 3:32pm eastern. Mayhaps the Superbowl will distract some and the price won’t skyrocket ๐Ÿ™‚

In other stock update action, the Panasonic G9 body only is back in-stock at B&H Photo for its starting price of $1700 with free shipping…

Surprise Shopping News: eBay will be replacing PayPal with Ayden in the next few years

This is a surprise! eBay will be eventually replacing PayPal as its payment method with a smaller European company called Ayden. This will be phased in over time. PayPal will continue to be available on eBay until July 2023 (over five years from now), while Ayden will have most of eBay’s payments by 2021. So it’s not something disruptive from a consumer perspective as it will be rolled out over time. PayPal’s negatives among consumers are probably high enough that quite a few people may cheer rather than cry for PayPal ๐Ÿ™‚

Ayden will launch in small scale later in 2018, and begin expanding in 2019 and later…

More details through CNBC and more discussion in the tech world nicely organized at Techmeme. Here’s eBay’s own explanation of the change in their press release

Or donate them to local photography clubs or schools.

Nikon D850 Hunt: Two eBay Auction-style Listings in progress

Another thing that surfaced during the Stock Status Update is that there are two live classic bid-style auctions on the Nikon D850 body only running on eBay and as fate would have it, they both end a few hours apart from each other. The listings end next Tuesday though, so the prices will definitely go up by then.

These are sold by individual eBay users, not camera retailers…

+ $1675 with 44 bids as of blog-posting time

+ Auction #2 (eBay) in NEW condition

Meanwhile a couple of DJI and Phantom quadcopter bundles from Beach Camera can be found under the Other Gadgets category.

Four Left: 36-page Japanese Nikon D850 Brochure for $12.75 w/FS

Refurbished Nikon D3400 with 18-55 and 70-300 DX for $390

IF you are participating in the eBay Rewards program, you may have also been invited to participate in another Bonus Bucks promotion, you get 8% eBay Bucks if you use the official eBay app, or 6% if you use the website. Eligible items must be $25+. Promotion runs until Thursday 12/21/17 at 11:59pm pacific time.

First you have to manually activate the offer from the eBay email or your eBay messages (if invited/selected to participate). Some exclusions apply as usual and the maximum rewards you can earn is $100 per transaction, and $500 during the promotional period.

A good place to look for ideas are the eBay Deals along with the Trending Deals (shows only 100 trending deals, less overwhelming to look at than their main deals page). There’s also a dedicated search box there that searches only the Deals, not everything else on eBay.

Another way to look for ideas is our eBay Category posts here…

eBay Coupon: 10% off orders of $25 or more from select sellers

Another week, another coupon promotion running at eBay. This offer gets you 10% off an order of $25+ when you enter promo code PGIFTS10 over there by December 19 at 11am eastern time. A total of 128 eBay sellers are participating in this promotion. The biggest discount you can get is $50, meaning eligible orders of $500+ will get a flat $50 off discount instead of 10% off.

As usual, note that different sellers have different authorized dealers status (or NOT), and the products offers may be in a variety of conditions as well.

There are over 1000 listings under the Camera and Photo category.

Imported Nikon D850 Body “drops” to $3400

I just updated the Stock Status Tracker and there is a “discount” on the limited availability premium of the Nikon D850. The camera’s official price is $3300 at authorized dealers, but it went over $3500 by importers who had it in-stock. Now the “limited availability premium” is shrinking, it’s “only” +$100, you can get it in imported grey-market condition with a 1-year seller warranty (not Nikon USA) by eBay seller Deals All Year (New Jersey) for $3400 with free shipping.

Personally I would wait for the Nikon USA authorized dealers, but I am not the Master of the Universe (I am barely the master of my thoughts), I can’t decide for everybody else ๐Ÿ™‚

Imported Nikon D850 Body w/1-YR Seller W for $3775

If you really don’t want to wait for the Nikon D850 to come in-stock from authorized Nikon USA dealers for $3300 [check the Stock Status Tracker for that], and you are willing to pay a limited availability premium, and get a 1-year seller warranty (instead of a Nikon USA warranty), then…

… to the eBay Deals we go where eBay seller “Deals All Year” is offering the new condition Nikon D850 body only for $3775 with free shipping and a 1-year warranty from the seller, not Nikon USA. Limit one per buyer.

They sold 54 of these, so temptation won over 54 people so far. Personally I wouldn’t buy it, but I’m not the master of the universe, other people have different preferences and priorities ๐Ÿ™‚

Refurbished Nikon D3400 w/18-55 for $300 [add 70-300 and $20GC for $400]

Back to the eBay Deals where there are two competing “take pictures with” Nikon D3400 APS-C DSLR manufacturer refurbished kits from BuyDig with a 90-day Nikon USA warranty.

For $300, you can get the D3400 w/18-55 DX VR with free shipping.

Or for $400, you can get the D3400 Two Lens Kit which adds the 70-300 DX lens and a $20 eBay gift card. So that’s the $100 trade off!

These are currently only available in the black color scheme.

The Panasonic GH5 body only has been steadily in-stock for $2000 at authorized Panasonic dealers (thank you MAP!) in new condition, so it is also being removed from the Stock Status Tracker [update in progress], so in a new blog tradition, it too is getting a “parting shot” post.

eBay launches Black Friday Ads “Meet or Beat” page

eBay is innovating too in the ever-changing world of Black Friday madness. They have now launched a Black Friday Price Matching page where they meet or beat some of the advertised offers from the Black Friday ads. As of the time of writing, there are 88 listings there, a few of them are tech items, but no camera gear. I will monitor it (on a time permitting basis) to see if anything pops up.

Speaking of eBay and price-matching, the official BOSE eBay store has price-matched their own Black Friday offers ๐Ÿ™‚

Speaking of eBay, here’s an appetizer doorbuster, the 8GB Transcend Class 10 SD card is offered for $5 with free shipping by PhotoVideo4Less (New York). Limit two per customer.

All the posts are sprawling today, so might as well, while we are talking eBay, the official Google eBAY store has their own Black Friday specials running with free shipping:
+ Google Chromecast for $25
+ Google Chromecast Audio for $25
+ Google Home for $79
+ limit three of each per customer

Imported Canon 5D Mark IV body with 1-YR Seller W for $2550

For $2849, you can get a loaded Canon 5D Mark IV bundle after mail-in rebate, but if you don’t want to deal with mail-in rebates, and don’t need/want the printer and the battery grip, AND you are comfortable with imported cameras…

… to the eBay Deals we go, where eBay seller “6ave” (98.9%) is offering it in new condition imported-grey market with a 1-year seller warranty (not Canon USA warranty) for $2550 with free shipping.

So it’s a game of trade offs:
+ mail-in rebate and prepaid gift card
+ USA warranty VS seller warranty
+ extra Printer and Battery Grip
+ A-list seller vs eBay seller
+ higher price vs lower price
+ sell/trade extras or no wish to do that

PS: we have a relatively new tag, Full Frame Deals that marks all the cameras that have a 35mm full frame sensor, whether they are DSLRs, mirrorless, fixed lens, or floating lens cube.

PS2: “W” is short for Warranty. With this blog template, I am trying to keep blog-post-titles one line long. If it goes for more than one line, it better make use of most of the second line, otherwise it’s wasted space. Although some could argue this whole blog is wasted space ๐Ÿ˜‰

GoPRO HERO6 with $50 Gift Card for $450

Another one of the eBay Black Friday Ad specials [see 2017 BF Ads Digest] has gone live at the eBay Deals, it is the new condition GoPRO HERO 6 with a $50 eBay Gift Card (does not specify whether this is digital or plastic by mail) and a 16GB microSD card offered for $450 with free shipping by the 6ave eBay Store. Limit three per customer.

There is no mention of warranty on the listing, so assume there is none to be on the safe side. This is the same seller that is apparently offering the $1500 Panasonic GH5.

UPDATE: speaking of eBay and Black Friday, another one of their doorbusters is live, the new condition Google Home offered for $79 with free shipping by Yapper Wireless, with up to three units per customer at the sale price. The listing says it comes with a 1-year warranty.

UPDATE #2: another eBay doorbuster, new condition Apple AirPods for $150 with free S&H.

Refurbished Nikon D7200 w/90-Day W for $650

The Nikon D500 APS-C flagship currently goes for $1800 with a free MB-D17 battery grip in new condition at authorized dealers. But if you want a serious Nikon APS-C DSLR while almost 1/3rd of that price…

… then to the eBay Deals we go, where the BuyDIG eBAY store is offering the manufacturer refurbished Nikon D7200 body only for $650 with free shipping and a 90-day Nikon USA warranty. Limit up to three per customer.

Imported Panasonic GH5 body w/1-YR seller warranty for $1500

One of the cameras teased in the eBay BF Ads [see BF Ads Digest mega-post] is the Panasonic GH5 body only for $1500, and I think I’ve found that offer. As expected, it is imported/grey-market, offered in new condition by 6ave’s eBay store with a limit of up to three per buyer. It comes with a 1-year seller warranty.

This is a $50 drop since the last time I updated the Stock Status Tracker where the same seller offered it for $1550. The new condition price at authorized dealers remains $2000 (thank you MAP pricing).

BUT another option emerged now, KEH Camera has limited supplies in USED “LN-” (Like New Minus) condition for $1829 plus shipping. And if you buy before 12/31/17, you get a 365-warranty from KEH Camera instead of the usual 180-day. Definitely better to have a KEH warranty than an eBay seller warranty ๐Ÿ™‚

eBay reveals Cameras in their BF Ad – most likely imported/grey-market

eBay has revealed their eight page Black Friday ad and it has about half a dozen digital cameras in it. The eBay ad however does not specify the seller of the camera, the warranty situation, or the condition of the product, so that’s a mystery until the deal goes live. Judging by the prices, it looks like most of them are probably going to be imported/grey-market. About half of them are 35mm full frame cameras.

We integrated eBay’s offers in the Black Friday 2017 Ads Digest. You can find all the eBay additions by using your browser’s search function looking for “eBay” (not case sensitive).

I will price-check and dig around on eBay to see if these are already live.
