If you need a basic camera to experiment upon, the badly reviewed Vivitar 5.1MP Digital Camera with 1.8-Inch TFT Panel has crashed down to $6 in “Used – Like New” condition in original packaging at Amazon Warehouse Deals. This is best suited for experimentation and DIY projects and such, not picture taking.
Free 2-day shipping for Prime members. It’s not an Add-On item ~ they really want to get rid of it 🙂
This was discovered while I was dumpster-diving in the Amazon Warehouse Deals Bargain Bin clearance.
Back to the new condition products, the Vivitar DF-383 Series 1 Power Zoom AF Flash for Nikon Cameras is on sale for $50 with free expedited shipping as a limited time offer at B&H Photo.
As of a 7/24/17 recheck, this is sold out in USED condition…
Even mo(i)re Bargain Bin sales at Amazon Warehouse Deals, it is the “Used – LIKE NEW” condition Energizer ENG-C60D Battery Grip for Canon 60D for $14~ with free shipping for Prime members. The description says this is in damaged original packaging.
It would be nice if we could have every lens we ever wanted, but reality often disagrees. Compromises such as teleconverters can be an option. The Vivitar 1.4x Teleconverter is on sale for $70 with free shipping, for a limited time, at B&H Photo in your choice of Canon EF or Nikon F.
The new condition Vivitar DF-383 Series 1 Power Zoom AF flash for the Nikon system is on sale for a limited time for $60 with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo. With many B&M camera stores closing, Vivitar brand sales must have been impacted the most since many stores had them as “budget alternatives”, and most people would not line up to buy Vivitar the same way they’d do for Canon and Nikon and such.
Doorbuster time! Adorama is offering the Vivitar 3-Piece 77mm UV/CPL/ND Filter Kit for $8 with free shipping. This is a while supplies last promotion.
This flash sale ended…
In addition to the day-long deals, the B&H Photo Daily Deals also include flash sales, offers that only run a few hours each (instead of the full 24 hours). Currently running until 9am ET on Monday is the Vivitar 1.4x Teleconverter for $70 with free shipping in either Canon or Nikon.
