Monday: Tokina 14-20mm f2 PRO (DX) for $299 [C], Etc

Monday is here with a new Tom Brady special! Buy one SuperBowl ring, get another one free 😉

Joking aside, we have a hooray-hooray, it’s a LENS DAY at the Monday B&H Photo daily deals good until Monday 2/8/21 at 11:59pm eastern (or earlier if sold out):

+ Tokina 14-20mm f2 PRO DX lens for $299 in Canon EF only
+ that’s around 21-30mm “35mm EQ”
+ the Nikon F lens is not part of the daily deal but it is on sale on its own for $379
+ one of the benefits of the CaNiKoN duopoly is having the option to buy APS-C lenses such as these!
+ this is blog-typo-certified to be Tokina, not Tamron 🙂

+ ARCO LCD Transport Case for 27-45″ Displays for $60
+ I was joking the other day about carrying around with me a 100″ display, but mayhaps it was not a joke after all? 😉

+ GVM Teleprompter TQ-M for Tablets and Smartphones with Remote Control & App for $129

+ ACCsoon CineEye Wireless Video Transmitter with 5 GHz Wi-Fi for up to 4 Mobile Devices for $149
+ personally I’m holding out for the Big East version 😉

UPDATE #1: the headliner of the Monday Woot daily deals is a feast of Google Pixels with six options ranging from $60 to $300, from Pixel XL all the way up to 4XL. Keep in mind, no microSD slot, no headphone jack, no Nexus soul 😉

The headliner of the Best Buy dailies is a 2TB WD EasyStore external HDD for $60… IF you are marrying old and new computeralia, they have the Insignia HDMI to VGA adapter for $15… There’s a $40 Nimble 3-day portable charger, a $13 Insignia 350 lumen LED flashlight, a 36pk of Insignia AA/AAA batteries for $11 (unfortunately worse than 4 batteries per $1)… And on and on and on…

UPDATE #2: a handful of Fire Tablets and Echo devices are among the Monday Amazon deals of the day in their Gauld Baux…

Outdoor Photographer for $4.71 per year

DiscountMags is back with another weekend sale and this one of course it’s a very special (in marketing terms) SuperBowl Weekend Sale that includes a 1-year subscription of the printed US-addresses “Outdoor Photographer” for $4.71 per year. That’s 11 issues. Its “default” sale price is $5/year.

AS usual there are many other “six degrees of separation” magazines like sports, fashion, nature, travel, science/tech (Wired, Discover, NatGeo, etc), etc, etc, etc. And “Consumer Reports” too for $17.57 for 1-year (= 13 issues)…

As usual, no auto-renewal. Only US addresses are eligible for obvious reasons (shipping/mailing the magazines outside the US would cost a whole lot more than the subscription price for a whole year)…

Sunday: Adobe Photoshop Elements 2020 for $32 [Disc only]

The Super-Bowl-Sunday Woot daily deals include MSI gaming desktop & laptops, a $730 unlocked Samsung Note 5G (128GB) and of photography interest, hiding in their “PC Software Deals” they have the Adobe Photoshop Elements 2020 for $32. This is a disc delivered by mail, not a digital download. It comes with a 90-day Woot warranty (whatever that means in this case LOL). Up to three per customer…

If you are looking for something to read while everybody else is getting drunk (figuratively and literally) on Super Bowl, here’s a new article at WIRED on a new company coming out of stealth on Optical Metasurface technology that hopes to (re)-revolutionize smartphone lenses…
