EU Prime Day Camera Gear: Canon, Sony, Pentax, Samyang, Zeiss Batis, Panasonic S5, Storage, Etc

It’s already Prime Day in Europe and at the Amazon Germany website there’s among others a Canon gear sale that includes the 90D, the G3X, and lenses of different kinds (EF, EF-S, EF-M, RF)… A total of nine options is available as of the time of writing…

But that’s not all! There’s also a big (two page) Sony-priority camera gear sale that includes various Sony lenses, the RX100 III, the 7R II body only, lenses from Samyang, Zeiss Batis, Pentax (eg 50/1.8 SMC DA for 100 euro), and Tamron, Panasonic S5, Steiner binos, and more!

There’s also a sale of action cameras and drones

Next up we have the Storage Sale that includes Sandisk SD and microSD, Samsung, Lexar, Axe and more, three pages of them! There’s even some CompactFlash UDMA7 of the Lexar kind!

The interesting thing with Prime, even if you live in a country that does not get Prime delivery (eg within the scope of Amazon Germany), you can still sign up for the 30-day Prime free trial and get the sale price. But you won’t get the free shipping benefits or any of the other DRM-restricted benefits (video, ebooks, etc)…

Monday: Edelkrone PAN, Zhiyun Crane 2S, HP DreamColor, Etc

Monday is here, yes, today is Prime Day I of 2021, but first we have the new round of B&H Photo dailies good until 11:59pm ET tonite or earlier iff (if and only if) they sell out:

+ Sachtler Eargonizer Audio Bag (Large) for $129
+ is it Ear + Organizer or Ear + Agonizer? 😉
+ audio gear needs its own “Bag the Bags!”

+ EdelKrone Pan PRO for $399
+ there’s something magical in panning since our natural vision cannot (yet) do 360
+ me personally, I’m getting fitted with six more eyes 😉

+ Zhigyn Tech CRANE 2S Handheld Gimbal Stabilizer for $349

+ HP DreamColor Z24x G2 24″ 16:10 IPS Monitor for $279
+ is it named so because it uses the color palette most common in dreams? 😉

+ Boya BY-WM4 PRO-K2 Two-Person Digital Camera-Mount Wireless Omni Lavalier Microphone System (2.4 GHz) for $100
+ not to be confused with ESPN’s Booya

+ IndiPro tools batteries, three options, $50 to $120

Nothing particularly exciting at Meh, Woot and Worst Buy so I’m not mentioning them today…

Stay tuned because starting at 12:01am pacific time, the Prime Day 2021 Day I begins at the Amazon website

At the Woot dailies there’s VIVO office/standing-desk equipment, PC accessories, AirPods PRO, MSI motherboards and Alien Tape which is decidedly made by humans for humans 😉

Meanwhile at the Best Buy dailies they have COVIDalia, K-Cup “Rinse Pods” [do NOT drink the Rinse Pod “coffee”] and actual K-cup coffee {but note that you will be excommunicated from the ranks of the hipsters if you make anything but pourover coffee ;-)} and discounts on Game of Thrones collections {who wants to pay for that “wonderful” season 8 “writing”?}

Lots of tech action at the NewEgg daylies including an Intel i7 [because Ryzen is sold-out?], PNY and Crucial memory, WD internal HDDs, a 27″ MSI monitor and a 2-pack of 32GB Samsung microSDHC cards (PRO Endurance) for $14 with free US shipping…

Not much today at the daily deals of the Amazon USA Gold Box but save the dates, Prime Day 2021 begins on Monday June 21st, which accordingly to my time-machine-calculator is around tomorrow 😉
