Refurbished Nikon Coolpix P1000 super-superzoom for $627

Zoom-zoom to the Adorama daily deals until Friday at 10am ET [or earlier if sold out] for the following deals du jour:

+ manufacturer refurbished Nikon Coolpix P1000 super-superzoom (125X optical up to 3000mm eq) with 90-day Nikon USA warranty for $627

+ 128GB Lexar Professional CFast 2.0 for $129

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

Today became an impromptu Nikon Z50 Day 🙂 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 🙂

Refurbished Nikon Z50 with 16-50 DX VR for $697

My oh my, an iLC camera at the Adorama daily deals, it is the manufacturer refurbished Nikon Z50 with 16-50mm f3.5-6.3 DX VR going for $697 with free US shipping and a 90-day Nikon USA warranty…

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” 🙂

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 😉

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? 🙂

Also part of the sales is the Incase EO Travel Collection Hardshell Roller going for $70 with free US shipping…

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…

Tuesday: refurbished Nikon Coolpix B500 superzoom for $150

UPDATE: among the Tuesday Newegg dailies there’s a 1TB Toshiba external HDD for $45 after the promo code shown over there, a standing desk converter for $70, Thinkpad and MSI laptops, and lots of other techie stuff…

And among the Amazon USA Gold Box daily deals, it’s a sale of various name-brand Fire TVs from Toshiba, and Insignia…

Surprise, surprise, it’s a CAMERA DAY at the Best Buy daily deals for Tuesday October 6 of the Crazy Year of 2020, the headliner is the Melisandre-red [okay, it’s some kind of a plum color scheme] refurbished Nikon Coolpix B500 superzoom, model 26507B, going for $150. This is a AA-powered camera (four of them) with a 40x optical zoom, something a smartphone can only do through tortured algorithms 😉

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!

Refurbished Nikon P1000 superzoom for $770 [ends Tue 10am ET]

It’s a camera day at the Adorama daily deal good until Tuesday 9/15/20 at 10am ET [or earlier if sold out] you can get the manufacturer refurbished Nikon P1000 superzoom for $770 with free US shipping and a 90-day Nikon USA warranty…

With a crazy 125x optical zoom that goes up to 3000mm this is perhaps in a separate category, telescope-zoom or humble-zoom? 🙂

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

Among the other daily deals there’s a $150 adjustable standing-desk converter, “phone soaps” with UV-C sanitizer [if the hand sanitizer gels don’t kill us, the UV radiation will finish the job!], and various power-related things… And an 800 lumen Insignia rechargeable flashlight for $29 [of potential light painting interest]…

Among the other daily deals, Woot has Amazon devices, a 21.5″ HP Elite Display, and MSI laptops and desktops among others… The Amazon mothership has Amazon devices on sale as well golf-related accessories… And at NEWEGG’s there’s a sexy 14″ ASUS Zenbook for $890, an i7-9700 Coffee Lake for $320, and the usual assortment of computer accessories…
