Amazon Outlet Sale has 75 C&P items

Not to be confused with Amazon Warehouse Deals which sells used items, Amazon has an Outlet store which sells new condition overstock items. As of the time of writing they have nearly 9000 items. You can use the left-hand side categories over there to filter them by areas of interest.

They have 75 items under the Camera & Photo Outlet of the C&P (= Camera & Photo) accessory kind. No cameras, no lenses. Except for a couple of generic kids cameras that is.

Of related interest is the Electronics Outlet with over 830 items as of the time of writing…

These are not daily deals. They are on-going overstock outlet offerings which have their own schedule (or mayhaps determined by the Amazon AI Price Bots, who knows…)

RoundUp: Rotolight, Gitup, Anker, Echo Frames, Etc

WE have a 2-in-1 update with this post, first up we start with the Adorama daily deals which are good until Tuesday at 10am ET (or earlier if sold out):

+ Rotolight AEOS Ultra-Portable Bi-Color Location LED for $618

+ Eggtronic 63W 20,000mAh Universal Power Bank for USB-C devices for $50

+ Gitup Git2 1080p Full HD Gyro Video Wi-Fi Action Camera for $55

NEXT we check the Amazon USA Gold Box deals du jour where among them we find the Alexa-enabled Echo Frames for $225. Yes, you can now talk to your glasses too, not just your phone. Note that these are clear lenses. Prescription lenses are not included in the price. But you can get them done for $$$ at LensCrafters or order your own and show them the Echo Frames installation instructions.

On a more practical level, they also have another variant of the Anker accessories sale which includes a 10,000 mAh solar powerbank with flashlight for $30, a USB-C powerstrip (AC, USB-A, USB-C ports) for $25, and a couple of other things…

Speaking of Amazon, this is a good time to check up again on the Camera and Photo Lightning Deals to see what’s happening there. As of the time of writing they have 115 items either in-progress or upcoming. Too many to list here individually, so here’s an executive summary:

+ digiframes

+ stabilizer-y things including movie-holding-thing, tripods, Moza selfie stick and gimbal

+ monolights, on-camera flashes, light panels

+ studio and background kits

+ action cam accessory kits

+ ring-lights

+ on-camera monitors

+ camera bags

+ kids cameras, binos, monocular, action cams

+ yes, Neewer wins the day once again!
