Refurbished Fuji XP90 waterproof P&S for $105

On the waterproof cameras front, the lime-green Fuji XP90 is offered in certified refurbished condition for $105 with free shipping by a 3rd-party seller with the order fulfilled by Amazon, so you get free 2-day shipping as a member.

NOTE #1: the seller’s name is “Prime Deal” but it has nothing to do with Amazon. I do not know why Amazon allows 3rd-party sellers to use names that can confuse the casual shopper into thinking this is Amazon.

NOTE #2: “certified refurbished” at Amazon is a term Amazon defines products that have a 90-day minimum warranty but they can be refurbished by anyone, manufacturer, 3rd-party, seller, unicorns, etc. They have created a portal dedicated to certified refurbished products over there.

Refurbished Canon SL1 with 18-55 IS STM and 1-YR warranty for $350

Another “take pictures with” kit among the refurbished Canon DSLRs that might be of interest for a first DSLR, perhaps for kids/teens since it is a bit smaller than the typical DSLRs, is the manufacturer refurbished black Canon SL1 with 18-55 IS STM with a 1-year Canon USA warranty going for $350 with free shipping. You also get a free badget bag and 16GB memory card. The white color scheme is out of stock.

The rest are out of stock (and cannot be ordered while they are out of stock). To see them all, use your browser’s in-page search function to search for “battery grip” over there after you increase “Items per page” to 72.

The new condition Canon 24-105mm f4L IS USM EF lens goes for $1000 at authorized dealers, bundled with a handful of lens-y accessories, eg Adorama (filters, cleaning kit, tether, lens shade, Corel software bundle).

But if you want to pay almost half of that, you can get it in manufacturer refurbished condition with a 1-year warranty at the official Canon USA store for $540 with free standard US shipping. You can almost buy two for the price of one!

PS: I wonder how authorized dealers feel when the manufacturer undercuts them dramatically in price, while at the same time the manufacturer places strict restrictions on what prices authorized dealers can offer. Sounds -opoly-ish to me but I’m not an expert in this field, just a bloviator with a keyboard 🙂

Refurbished Samsung S29E790C Ultra Wide Curved WFHD LED backlit Monitor for $310

If you are a bit of an adventurous shopper, and your world view is wide and slightly curved, there is currently the certified refurbished 29-inch Ultra Wide Curved Samsung S29E790C WFHD LED-backlit Monitor is offered for $310 with free shipping by Woot with the order fulfilled by Amazon. It only has three customer reviews, one is happy, one is happy but the first one was a dead-on-arrival, and the third got the wrong power cord. So there is some risk here. If you are risk averse and start fuming at the thought of having to return/exchange something, you may want to skip it.

The monitor has 2560 x 1080 resolution (21:9), Picture in Picture, HDMI, DisplayPort, VESA, etc. Gallery picture #6 shows the connections on the back but it’s a small picture. Zooming in, it looks like there are three, maybe the two are the HDMI (I’m only guessing).
