Used Sony a6000 body (Very Good condition) for $279

IF however you are not interested in the previously mentioned Sony a6000 new condition kits and instead you can to optimize for a lower price, Adorama has the USED a6000 body only for $279 in “Used – Very Good” condition with a 90-day warranty (from Adorama).

Sony a6000 with extras: body for $398, w/16-50 for $448

The Sony Instant Savings promotion reminds us that you can get into the Sony APS-C E-system with a step-up series camera (A6xxx) for just $398. That’s right, the a6000 body only goes for $398 and the “with 16-50mm” kit goes for $448.

At Adorama you have to do some scrolling and paging up-n-down to find all the options but you will be rewards because the “with 16-50” kit gets more additional freebies (flex tripod, extra charger/battery, lens filters, better memory card) than the body only (bag, memory card, cleaning kit, software, card wallet). Note also that the camera is available in two color options, effectively doubling the number of options you have to sort through…

At B&H Photo you get a 32GB Sandisk Extreme, a 3rd-party battery and a camera bag, while the two lens kit ($598) gets a lens filter as well…

At Amazon, various 3rd-party sellers offer various freebies, a dizzying array of options as there are three official camera kits with two body colors for the camera and many 3rd party retailers 🙂

The names in the a6xx line-up are a bit confused, so confused that even the Wikipedia page is confused. The a6000 come out in 2014, followed by the a6300/a6500 in 2016, and the a6100/a6400/a6600 in 2019, all with 24mp Exmor APS-C CMOS sensors. The newer a6300 has already been discontinued but the a6000 continues as a current model. The all-new a6100 goes for $650 (body) or $750 (w/16-50)…

Sony a7 II with 28-70 and Various Freebies for $999

We all live in a yellow submarine but also in the era of the $1000 “take pictures with” 35mm full frame interchangeable lens camera in the Sony E-system with the Sony a7 II with the 28-70mm FE lens bundled together for $999 with various freebies offered by select retailers…

At Amazon for example, there is a bundle by Focus Camera that includes a Dolica tripod, Vanguard bag, 64GB Sandisk Extreme PRO, extra 3rd-party charger/battery, etc…

At B&H Photo you get a 64GB Sandisk Extreme, extra 3rd party battery, RJ bag, lens filter, etc…

At Adorama you get a 32GB Extreme PRO, Slinger bag, lens filter kit, etc…

At Best Buy you get a $25 Shutterfly store credit…

Wedn: Sony Cybershot W800 P&S camera (5x optical) for $50

Among the Hump Day Woot Electronics deals of the day is a sale on the new condition Sony Cybershot W800 P&S digital camera (20mp 1/2.3″ CCD, 5x optical zoom (26-130mm eq), Lion, 2.7″ LSD, microSD and MS Duo, etc) in the black color scheme going for $50 with free shipping for Prime members [you have to connect your Woot-Prime accounts ~ a one-time action] or $6 flat for the calendar day for non-members. The camera comes with a 90-day Woot warranty and you can buy up to ten per customer.

That’s $10 per optical zoom unit for those buying The Costco Way 😉

The aforementioned sale includes various other assorted electronics including the new condition Force1 U45WF Wi-Fi Camera Drone for $70, a Phantom 2 controller for $40, a couple of Rokus, a couple of gaming accessories, and more. The reason there are multiple items in a daily deal is because sometimes Woot groups together a “Plus” sale and offers it as a daily deal. I don’t know if the Plus sale will continue after the daily deal expires or it will disband or the items will join other sales and such…

If you missed yesterday’s $80 Chromebook, fear not! Woot Computers comes to the rescue with another one, this one is actually $79, it is the refurbished Dell Chromebook 11-3120 Notebook with the Intel N2840 2.16GHz Dual-Core processor, 4GB DDR3 [important these days], 16GB eMMC of on-board storage, 802.11ac, Bluetooth, etc. It comes with a 90-day Woot warranty. Limit up to ten per customer. Of interest if there’s rough usage for the laptop as it is a MIL-STD model.

IMPORTANT: now that Chromebooks have been around for quite a few years, a new twist/risk is raising it’s semi-ugly head. Google does not offer automated OS updates for platforms that are over 6.5 years old. Note that the clock starts ticking on the platform, not the individual laptop. So the clock for this device began ticking when the first Intel N2840 Chromebook came out. This particular model will get auto-updates until June 2020. Details at 11 or more conveniently at the Google Support page for ChromeOS devices 🙂

UPDATE: while we are on the topic of daily deals, one of the Amazon Gold Box deals of the day is yet another Anker sale featuring various charging products: powerbanks, cables, car and wall and wireless chargers…

Sony RX10 Mark IV drops to $1598

With so many DSLR and mirrorless camera bodies and kits and lenses under the price, some may hesitate to buy a fixed lens camera at the Sony RX10 price range.

EU: Used Sony RX10 Mark IV for 1448 euro

Price aside, the Sony RX10 Mark IV mayhaps is the closest to a “do it all Paul” type of a camera with a 1″ sensor, a solid superzoom range with OIS, fast autofocus, 4K video, etc, etc, etc. But the price is quite high for this model. If you are tempted but you are fond of buying used, as of the time of writing, the German Amazon Warehouse Deals has it in USED condition for 1448 euro. Note however that this is repackaged and the battery is missing [uses typical Sony batteries] and has small scratches…

Pre-order new compact Sony HX99 Travel Zoom (30X optical)

It is a small sensor but RAW is better than not having RAW for those who like to squeeze more out of their camera.

It is available for pre-ordering for $448 at Adorama and B&H Photo and Amazon itself with a early November 8 release estimate.

EU: Sony RX10 First Generation for 650 euro

The Sony RX10 Mark IV is the leader of the RX10 series but with a price that is not that far from 2000 (Euro or Dollars), one who loves the idea of the RX10* models but has a fiscally strict spouse-CFO may be interested in the original model, the first generation RX10, it is currently on sale in new condition for 650 euro by Amazon Germany itself with a maximum of two units per Amazon account at the sale price.

One could buy almost three of these for the price of one Mark IV with its 4K and bigger lens and speed-demon auto-focus and such…

EU residents pay no additional VAT/customers. Outside the EU, it depends on your location and situation…

Sony a7 III estimate “improves” to 2-5 weeks

The silver lining good news of today’s update of the Stock Status Tracker is that the Amazon estimates for both the sony a7 III body only and the a7 III w/28-70 have “improved” from “1 to 2 months” to “2 to 5 weeks”. This is still a nebulous estimate, so keep that in mind if you need the camera by a specific date.
