Today is Amazon Prime Day, which Amazon is using to promote its Prime membership benefits (you can get a free trial) with tons of deals (which Amazon says are better than Black Friday deals) across the different categories Amazon sells, including photography deals. There are several cameras and accessories already listed with several others sure to pop up as Lightning Deals throughout the day.
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.
Amazon’s Prime membership just keeps getting better and better. With Amazon’s announcement today, it makes Prime a no-brainer for virtually all photographers.
Amazon Prime members now get unlimited photo storage added to their already impressive list of benefits. The free cloud photo storage includes photos from mobile devices and computers. 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…]
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 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…]
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?
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.
Digital Capture After Dark is a new book from Amanda Quintenz-Fiedler and Philipp Scholz Rittermann.
“Their coverage goes beyond the “how to” of capturing digital images at night and addresses the “why to” of long-exposure photography, including the importance of understanding how we think and see at night compared with during the day.
Also discussed are hands-on image editing techniques that will help photographers prepare their images for output. Detailed descriptions cover color balancing, expanding dynamic range, controlling flare, dealing with noise, converting to black-and-white, toning, and much more.”
