CORRECTION
The previous two links to the NewEgg dailies in previous posts were pointing to Best Buy instead. They have now been corrected. This is another iteration of the “sticky cut and paste problem”. Similar to Cixin Liu’s “Three Body Problem” 😉

Basically the “cut” of the intended link does not work for some reason, and when you “paste”, you paste the previously copied link. When you are not totally concentrated in the HTML code, you do not notice it.

Then the next time, you simply “cut and paste” the previous NewEgg link, and once again, if you are not totally concentrated in the HTML code, you do not notice it.

And it continues until one of the readers, or until I notice it 🙂

Running until April 29, Woot Plus (the longer-running Woot offers) is having an Amazon Prime Exclusive sale. To get these, you must have an Amazon Prime account which is linked to your Woot account. This linking needs to happen only once per lifetime.

Among the offers is something for the risk-takers, it is the international version without manufacturer warranty of the Canon SX620 HS superzoom bundled with some accessories for $210. Up to two per customer.

Per the bottom of the listing, you get a 90-day Woot limited warranty. But further up the listing says “(NO WARRANTY)”. The seller (or at least the one packaging it) appears to be “Deal-Expo” which offers no warranty, but Woot appears to be throwing in a 90-day warranty of their own. The extra accessories are pictured and listed…

Among the rest of the offers there’s a Fossil Kinley Crossbody bag [some general purpose bags can be repurposed as camera bags if you use camera inserts and protective material or bag-within-a-bag).

Panasonic ZS70 travel zoom with Panasonic Battery/Charger Kit and More Extras for $298

Meanwhile the Adorama daily deal (changes at 10am eastern time every day) is the new condition Minolta MN12Z compact zoom digital camera going for $90 with free shipping.

This is not an old camera from the early 2000s found in a warehouse but a new Minolta-branded camera. It has a 12x optical zoom lens with OIS, 1-year warranty, 20mp sensor, Wifi, SDXC card support, 720p video, 2.7″ LCD, etc… Did I mention this is in the purple color scheme? Sorry, no “Deep Purple” edition available 🙂

OR if you are a fan of used cameras, you can get it for $59 in “Used – Excellent’ condition over there. Not sure if the used price is coupled with the daily deal price (eg it will go up when the new condition price increases after the daily deal expires)…

Speaking of Adorama, they are currently running a BIG 4-DAY SALE with over 500 items participating. Too many obviously to list here individually, use the various filters on the left hand side over there to look for items of interest (eg by manufacturer, product type, discount percentage, price range, etc)…

This is a 15x optical zoom, closer to the travel zoom kind than let’s say those 125x optical zoom cameras 🙂

EU: Nikon Coolpix P1000 superzoom for 777 euro [Prime Deal]

Why couldn’t they call them “euro dollars” to make it easier? 🙂

This time Amazon Germany “defeats” The Mothership as they are having a Prime deal on the new condition Nikon Coolpix P1000 superzoom for the James Bond approved price of 777 euro. This has “just” a 125x optical zoom lens. And there was a time when there was awe in the camera forums when we got a 12x optical zoom 🙂

Panasonic ZS60 travel zoom for $250 [limit 3]

Zoom-zoom! For a limited time, Amazon itself is offering the new condition Panasonic ZS60 travel zoom in the black color scheme for $250 with free shipping with up to three cameras per customer at the sale price. This is a limited time offer but not a lightning deal, so there’s no ticking clock on the offer.

With many and more superzoom cameras out there, there are plenty of choices out there, making it a pleasant headache in deciding which one(s) to get 🙂

Speaking of Amazon, one of their Wednesday daily deals is a sale on renewed Microsoft Surface Studios of the first generation kind with prices ranging from $1359 (i5, 8GB, 1TB) to $1885 (i7, 32GB, 2TB)…

Kodak AZ652 superzoom (65X OIS, RAW) for $300

PS: for our younger viewers, Kodak is not a company created by the famous rapper to sell merchandise. It is an older company, based in upper New York state. The name though for camera marketing purposes is owned by one of the brand-remilking companies, not by the OG Kodak, and still not by the rapper Kodak 😉

Thursday (EU): Sony E-system and RX sale, etc

It’s another camera and tech busy day at the Amazon Germany Gold Box. Among the various offerings there, prices below in euro of course since this is sold in the EU:
