Amazon’s Prime Day is July 15-16. There are several great deals in electronics and photo gear; however, it’s not just Amazon that is offering great deals. B&H Photo, Adorama, eBay, and others are stepping up their deals to get a little piece of the Prime Day pie (and, of course, there’s no Prime membership exclusivity with the other retailers). Check out some of these solid deals below. (You can find all of Amazon’s Prime Day Camera & Photo deals here.) [Read more…]
Deal: Amazon Echo Dot for $29
The little Amazon Echo Dots are incredibly handy and are available for just $29 (reg. $49) this weekend as part of the Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. I’ve got a couple of the Echo Dots (and just ordered another), along with the larger Amazon Echo, which has great, full sound. I continue to be surprised at how much we enjoy using Alexa for music and general voice apps. Our kids love playing 20 Questions and other games and stories.
The Echo isn’t really photography-related but it’s a great electronic accessory at an incredible value. You can find great deals on the Amazon Echo devices, Fire TV, tablets and other Amazon devices here on Amazon.com.

Amazon Announces ‘Prime Day’ with More Deals than Black Friday
Amazon has announced Prime Day, a one-day shopping event for Amazon Prime members that takes place next Wednesday, July 15.
Amazon says that it will offer more deals than Black Friday (and it always has a ton of great deals on Black Friday).
Obviously, this is a ploy to get more people to sign up for Amazon Prime memberships. That said, I’ve been an Amazon Prime member for years and have always been happy with my membership benefits.
Aside from the free 2-day shipping, Amazon Prime offers a ton of other benefits with free instant video, Prime music, photo storage and lots more.
You can learn more about Prime Day here on Amazon.com.
I’ll post any great photography or video deals that I see next week on Prime Day.

There are iOS and Android apps to easily connect to Amazon Cloud Drive (where the photos are stored), which is tied to your Amazon account. [Read more…]
Colbert Report Takes on Amazon’s Seamless White Background Patent
Last week, we covered Amazon‘s patent for studio photography on a white background. Stephen Colbert caught wind of the patent and had a little fun on his program yesterday. Check out the clip from last night’s show below. [Read more…]
Amazon Patents Studio Photography on Seamless White Background
Amazon has had some pretty revolutionary ideas over the years. The Kindle is awesome. Prime is a great service. And drone delivery may be on the horizon. However, Amazon has gone a bit too far with one of its latest “inventions.”
Amazon Technologies, Inc. (a subsidiary of Amazon.com, Inc.) has legitimately patented studio the common studio photography method of photographing subjects on a seamless white background using a cyclorama and the USPTO actually granted the patent. [Read more…]
Canon EOS M Listed as Discontinued
Adorama is the first retailer that I am aware of to list the Canon EOS M as discontinued. Searching for “EOS M” on Adorama’s site automatically directs you to a page containing discontinued items, and only displays used items. Additionally, the previous product listing for the EOS M now says “We are sorry, this item is no longer available.”
Perhaps the recent $299 fire sale for Canon EOS M kits depleted Adorama’s supply?
B&H and Amazon are currently back-ordered on this kit; however, you can still order at $299.
Additionally, the EOS M kit with 18-55mm lens for $349 is in stock at both B&H and Amazon.
If you have been thinking about picking up one of these very discounted prices, you may not have much time left to find one at all.
