Olympus Outlet Refurb Refill: FL-600R for $200, TG-series, Etc

The previously mentioned refurb E-PL7s have sold out once again, but the refill continues at the official Olympus USA outlet store with a variety of refurbished M43 cameras, a trio of refurb TG-series elementproof P&S cameras, the refurb FL-600R flash for $200, various lenses and such. A total of 43 listings are available. They are slow to remove sold-out/out-of-stock items, so they don’t disappear from that listing immediately after they sell out…

Tue Gold Box: YI Lite Action Cam, Zomei, Urceri, Etc

There is some potentially interesting action in the Tuesday Amazon Gold Box as follows:

+ also free lens pouch under “Special offers and product promotions” – can’t tell if this would be stackable with the lightning deal price until it goes live and you can add to the shopping cart and see what happens; in these type of situations, sometimes they are stackable, sometimes they are not;

+ various action cams and other assorted C&P accessories as usual

Now shipping: Nokia 6.1 Android Smartphone (ZEISS Optics) w/free Photo Kit for $269

If you are a Nokia + Zeiss shipper (ha!), the brand new Nokia 6.1 factory-unlocked Android smartphone with Zeiss optics is now in-stock and shipping for $269 with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo with a free “B&H Photo Video Basic Photo/Video Kit for Smartphones” [mount, LED light, flexible tripod] automatically included by B&H.

This runs Android 8.0, with 3GB RAM [probably the minimum these days for Android], 32GB on-board, microSD storage, GSM, NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, USB-C connector [but not USB 3.x features],

One of the things Nokia is promising with their Android phone line-up is speedy and steady OS and security updates ~ after all the phone is part of Android One. It is easier to promise this when your phone line-up consists of single-figures in individual models, we’ll see how it plays out in the next couple of years ~ after all, most phone manufacturers sound/sounded very optimistic in delivering updates at announcement time, but their post-release records are spotty and patchy [pun intended?]. But they have already delivered multiple updates for their first generation Android phones…

PS: the same price is offered at but without a free photo-video accessories kit…
