Friday: refurbished Canon SX720 HS compact-superzoom (40x) w/1yr warranty for $150

It’s not often we find a digital camera in the daily deals, but for Friday 7/17/20 we do so at the B&H daily deals [CORRECTED LINK]. It is red and refurbished and superzoom. It is the Canon SX720 HS going for $150. It comes with a 1-year parts and labor warranty per the listing [under “Specifications”]…

It has a 40x optical zoom and it is a DiGiC 6 era camera. As the “HS” in the model name suggests, this is a CMOS camera, while the “IS” for those too young to have lived through CCD sensor P&S Canon cameras, was used for CCD Powershots.

It is fascinating how camera size is relative. A compact superzoom like this, yet one of the reviewers complained it was “too heavy” and “bulky”. Mayhaps they didn’t try the focal range with DSLR lenses? 🙂

New round of B&H daily deals and this being FriYAY, they last until Saturday at 11:59pm ET, but as usual B&H does not accept orders Friday PM through Saturday PM [check their website for exact times]:

+ Impact 5-in-1 Collapsible Oval Reflector with Solid Gold (42×72″) for $50
+ why buy 5 when you buy 5-in-1? 🙂

+ Porta Brace AH-2.5 Padded Audio Harness for $109

+ Ikan Carbon Fiber Camera Slider with 19mm Track Rails (31″) for $129
+ unless you a surgeon or a dentist as your camera man, you need this 😉

Creative LIVE has launched another sale, all classes from their Top 5 instructors are on sale for $29 or less. The Top Five [not to be confused with the Cylon Final Five] is Sue Bryce, John Greengo, Lindsay Adler, Ben Willmore and Andrew Scrinivari…
