Last Minute Year-End Deals

Lexar 32GB SDHC Card

If you’re looking for a nice little year-end tax deduction, or you just want to save a buck on some camera gear, we’ve got you covered.  Here are a few great deals that expire today.

Lexar 32GB Class 10 SDHC card – $32.95
(just ordered one for myself)  Class 10 speed rating with a maximum transfer speed of 15MB/s.  A very good (probably the best you’ll find) price for a competent 32GB memory card.  This card is good for all HD video cameras and still images on digital cameras up to entry-level DSLRs.  If you want to know the ins and outs of what the SD card speed ratings and classifications mean, check out Demystifying SD Cards.

This deal has popped up and down a handful of times over the past couple months.  For now, it looks like it will come to an end tonight.

Music Pack Sale at SmartSmound
There are several deals available for some royalty-free music for your videos at SmartSound.  I recently talked about why you should look into music licenses for your client videos and online videos.  I also took advantage of these deals a couple days ago and got 13 albums for around $300 to use for upcoming projects.  If you buy one of the music packs, you also get access to the excellent Scoring Edition of their software for $1.
