It’s back to back LENS DAYZ at the Adorama daily deals but today is not the type of lens most of you may have been expecting. It is an 18-55 APS-C kit lens πŸ™‚

They Are Back (OR never left): refurbished Nikon Z5 sale: Body $899, w/24-50 $1099, w/24-200 $1699

These were an Adorama daily deal. The daily deal ended but I forgot to check whether the price of these changed or not. Fast-forward to now, and I rechecked the price, and the price remains the sale price, or it went up and now it is down again ~ I do not know. What matters is that as of the time of writing, the sale price is alive and kicking… Since this is now an “organic sale”, and not a daily deal, I have no clue what will happen to it going forward…

These are manufacturer refurbished with a 90-day Nikon USA warranty…

+ refurbished Nikon Z5 body only for $899

+ refurbished Nikon Z5 with Z 24-50/4-6.3 for $1099

+ at the Best Buy dailies there’s a Surface Laptop 3, more WD HDDs, a Joby GorillaPod 3K Tripod with ball head kit for $35, and such

+ and at the Amazon USA Gold Box there’s a $27 humidifier as the headliner, electronic learning toys, serums with “photo” in their name (!@!$#), and more…

Refurbished Nikon Z6 body only for $1199

My oh my what a surprise at this fresh set of Adorama daily deals ending by Tuesday 4/13/21 at 10am eastern [or earlier for anything that may sell out]. Headlining the action is the manufacturer refurbished Nikon Z6 body only going for $1199 with free US shipping and a 90-day Nikon warranty. This is a 35mm full frame mirrorless camera body.

Post-purchase lens options vary, especially if you do not object to adapters and such…

Meanwhile at the rest of the Monday daily deals, we have an Anker sale through the Amazon USA Gold Box with five options ranging from $15 (mouse) to $104 (87W 25600 mAh powerbank with 65W USB-C)…

Then at the Woot dailies we have a sale on 13″ Surface Laptop 2 ($600 to $700, i5 or i7), with another Amazon Hardware sale as the main deal of the day (almost half of them already sold out)…

Refurbished Nikon Z6 with 24-70mm f4 Z for $1649

On the other hand, if you want a “take pictures with” kit, good until Tuesday 4/13/21 at 10am eastern (or earlier if sold out) you can get the manufacturer refurbished Nikon Z6 with 24-70mm f4 S Z lens for $1649 with free US shipping and a 90-day Nikon warranty…

Both the Z6 and the Z 24-70/4 S lens are “full frame” πŸ™‚

Mon: imported grey-market Nikon D5600 body for $600

As teased yesterday, one of the Monday 3/22/21 NewEgg daily deals is the new condition imported grey-market Nikon D5600 body only going for $600, sold and shipped by marketplace seller “Red Tag Camera” through the NewEgg website…

To get a feel for the USA-warranty prices, check the various options and configurations and such at B&H Photo and Adorama and Amazonia

Among the other NewEgg dailies, they have the 1TB Toshiba Canvio for $42 AC, 6TB WD Elements desktop for $100 AC, internal Toshiba HDD, flash drive, Logitech MK710, Windows 10 PRO upgrade, Core i7, 27″ GigaByte 144Hz IPS monitor, etc…

Meanwhile the current iteration of the Adorama daily deals [changes Tuesday 10am ET] is a trio of options:

+ 10 exposures of Fuji instax mini chroma film for $4
+ you can buy as many as you like

+ Moza Air 2 3-Axis Handheld Gimbal Stabilizer for $399

+ DigiTech CabDryVR Dual Speaker Cabinet Emulator Pedal for $80

Heads Up: Nikon D5600 among the Monday daily deals

This is a heads up alert! Among the teasers for the Monday 3/22/21 daily deals at the NewEgg website they show the Nikon D5600. The teasers over there do not point to actual product pages, so I do not know which kit will be offered and who will be the seller.

The daily deals at NewEgg go live at 12am pacific time, aka 3am eastern time (on Monday 3/22/21 in our case)…

A reasonable guess is that it might be the standard “with 18-55” kit, and as far as the seller, a number of the cameras offered in the NewEgg dailies are international/grey-market. Lower chances it might be refurbished or new (USA warranty) or open-box.

But of course I’m only guessing since the teaser does not show more, and I don’t remember if the D5600 was previously offered as a daily deal at NewEgg. If it had and I remembered, there could be reasonable chances that it is recurring. Sort of like the refurbished Sony H300 superzoom for $85 by a marketplace seller that returns every few days/weeks…

UPDATE: on the learnings front, for a limited time, Creative LIVE is having an Adobe software classes sale that includes bootcamp and beginner style classes among others with prices starting at $10 and going up to $29…

Nikon 70-20mm f2.8E FL ED VR with FotoPro X-Go Max carbon fiber tripod w/built-in monopod for $1897

Trinkety freebies are a harder sell when one is buying an f2.8 PRO zoom lens than when one is buying an entry-level camera or entry-level lens. But what about an actual real tripod as a freebie?

Adorama is bundling for FREE with their new condition Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR lens for $1897 an actual real tripod, the FotoPro X-Go Max Carbon Fiber Tripod with Built-In Monopod, FPH-62Q Ball Head which goes for $269 on its own…

If you don’t want any freebies or if you are planning to take advantage of the B&H PayBoo card, B&H Photo offers it at the same price but without a free tripod…

Refurb Nikon Z50 Two Lens Kit for $947 (Z 16-50, Z 50-250)

Today became an impromptu Nikon Z50 Day πŸ™‚ We start, in reverse chronological order blog-style with the refurbished Nikon Z50 two lens kit (Z 16-50 DX VR and Z 50-250 DX VR) going for $947 at Adorama’s store with a 90-day Nikon USA warranty… This is $250 less than the new condition kits

BUT the refurbished kits are not eligible for the Nikon-blessed promotion for the new condition kits that you can add the Nikon FTZ mount adapter (Nikon F lenses to Z bodies) to a Z50 kit for just +$47 more…

Of course it is also likely/possible that someone interested in a two-lens DX kit, may not be interested right away in adapters…

Refurbished Nikon Z50 body w/90DW for $749

We previously mentioned the Nikon Z50 2-lens kit offer for $1100, BUT if you are not interested in the basic zoom kit lenses, and you want a lower entry-price into the Nikon Z system, B&H Photo is offering the refurbished Z50 body only for $749 with free US shipping and a 90-day Nikon USA warranty…

HOWEVER, the refurbished version is not eligible for the Nikon-blessed offer of adding the Nikon FTZ mount adapter (Nikon F lenses to Nikon Z bodies) for just +$47 with new condition Z50 kits. So if you have no way of procuring an adapter for less then mayhaps you are better off going with the new condition kits…

… and given the prices of the new condition kits, the Z50 body only goes for $857 while the Z50 with 16-50mm goes for $897 (+$40 for the 16-50 lens which you can resell/trade/etc), you may be better off with the latter. With these kits, for +$47 you can add the Nikon FTZ adapter. That too you can resell/trade/etc if you don’t plan on using…

The above links are at B&H Photo, but you can find similar bundles at Adorama’s listings

… but we are not done with the Z50, there’s one more post, and I promise that’s it with the Z50 for today πŸ™‚

Sunday: Best Buy’s Nikon Z50 2-Lens Kit matched with different accessories elsewhere

The headliner of the Sunday 11/1/20 Best Buy daily deals is a Nikon Z50 two lens kit with a freebie for $1100. The two lenses are the Z 16-50mm f3.5-6.3 DX VR and the Z 50-250mm f4.5-6.3 DX VR. Thankfully Nikon gave them slightly different focal lengths from their parallel DSLR models.

The freebie is the Sunpak 12″ Bi-Color Tabletop Vlogging Kit which has a Best Buy valued price of $50 and includes a 12″ USB-powered bi-color ring-light, a flexible smartphone mount, a mini ball head (up to 4.5 lbs, aka ~2 kilos) and a bluetooth remote for iOS/Android…

This is an APS-C Nikon mirrorless camera, and I proposed that we call the Nikon Z mirrorless cameras “Zikon”, to easily distinguish them from “Nikon” πŸ™‚

The offers end on Thursday 10/15/20 at 10am eastern or earlier for any that may sell out ahead of its designated expiration time…

Refurbished Nikon Coolpix P1000 superzoom (125x) for $697

But wait, there’s more at the Adorama daily deals, and with this offer, you can zoom to the stars, you may even be able to photograph the Big Bang ~ if you attach a series of telescopes and time-machines to the end of the lens πŸ˜‰

Okay, silliness aside, the offer is the manufacturer refurbished Nikon Coolpix P1000 superzoom going for $697 with free US shipping and a 90-day Nikon USA warranty. This camera has an insane 125x optical zoom ratio up to 3000mm eq ~ can your new iPhone 12 PRO MAX XL do this? πŸ™‚

This is a AA-powered camera (four of them) with a 40x optical zoom, something a smartphone can only do through tortured algorithms πŸ˜‰

Among the rest of the Best Buy daily deals there’s the 64GB Sandisk Nintendo Switch microSDXC for $19, a 10-inch Aluratek touch-screen digital picture frame [that looks a bit like the abandoned Windows Phone UI] for $140, and a 48-pack of Insignia single-use AA batteries for $12, a mere 4 batteries per $1.

Meanwhile at the Woot daily deals there’s scratch and dent iPhone X [can’t use plural because that’s a different model {DAILY REMINDER: do not put a final “s” in your product’s model name}], Amazon Fire tablets, and a 17.3″ inch HP laptop. In the era of big-screen smartphones and tablets and 2-in-1s, a 17.3-inch laptop feels like you are using an …aircraft carrier!

LAST CALL: 10% off Canon and Nikon gear with KEH coupon [ends Wedn PM]

In the real-world, there’s the power of love. In the world of digital cameras, there’s the power of CaNiKoN πŸ˜‰ Case in point, good until Wednesday 4/8/20 at 11:59pm ET, coupon code CN4A gets you 10% off Canon and Nikon camera gear participating in this promotion. As usual, their shopping cart is the ultimate decider on what qualifies…

EXCLUDED are “NEW” condition, “USED – Like New” and digital starter kits…

KEH Starter Kit #1: USED Nikon D5100 with 18-55 and Extras and 180-day warranty for $239

We have the first of three USED camera “Starter Kits” offered by KEH Camera. This one is the lowest price one as you are getting an older DSLR (released in 2011) but you are also paying a lot less for a non-entry-level tier APS-C DSLR. It is the USED Nikon D5100 Starter Kit that includes the 18-55mm DX (no VR) lens, battery, charger, 52mm UV filter, camera strap and 16GB memory card along with a 180-day warranty offered by KEH. All this for $239 plus shipping…

Optionally, the starter kits (and many other purchases at KEH) are also offered through an installment plan through Affirm. As always with these type of financing offers, be sure to read the terms and conditions before jumping in, and look at how they figure into your financial planning and such…

KEH Starter Kit #2: USED Nikon D3300 with 18-55 DX VR AF-P and Extras and 180-day warranty for $269

On the other hand, if you want a more recent DSLR body, KEH Camera is also offering a Nikon D3300 centered Starter Kit. The D3300 was released in 2014. It comes with the AF-P 18-55mm X VR lens, battery, charger, 55mm UV filter, camera strap and 16GB memory card. You also get a 180-day warranty from KEH. The price is $269 plus shipping…

Given today’s memory card prices, you may scoff at a 16GB card, but given that this is a “starter kit”, it is a great idea to include a memory card, so a potential buyer or gift recipient can start shooting out of the box without additional purchases. Then one can procure additional memory cards as needed πŸ™‚

Refurbished Nikon D610 body only for $665

We have a “Refurbished Full Frame Trilogy” of posts, starting with the refurbished US model Nikon D610 body only for $665 with free S&H for Prime members or $6 flat for non-members. Yes, you can haz a full framer for under $666 πŸ™‚

Up to ten per customer at the sale price. It comes with a 90-day Woot warranty. This one does not have an optional SquareTrade warranty offer [or I didn’t find it].

This too surfaced through the Woot Categories, a much easier way to see what else the still-chaotic Woot is offering πŸ™‚
