Amazon Prime Day: Dropbox Plus (1 TB Storage) for 1 Year, $79.20

Amazon has a 1-year Subscription to Dropbox Plus – 1 TB of Storage for $79.20. Dropbox is rarely discounted!

The subscription increases your storage at Dropbox to 1 TB (from the free 2 GB.) That’s enough to create a complete cloud archive for most photographers. Last time this deal was offered, Dropbox support said this could be used to extend an existing subscription: “If you have an existing Plus or Professional subscription and redeem a license key, your Plus or Professional billing cycle associated with your license key will automatically start on your next renewal date. You will not be charged again until the Plus or Professional billing cycle associated with your license key expires.”

Amazon Lightning Deal: Rokinon/Samyang 14mm f/2.8 for $207.20


The Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 Ultra Wide-Angle for Canon (same lens) is also on sale, for a lower price at $207.20. The deal expires in 5 hours or when sold out. This is the lowest price seen for this lens! They also have the Rokinon AE14M-C 14mm f/2.8-22 Ultra Wide Lens with Built-In AE Chip for $303.20 (reg. $379)

Original Post:

Amazon Prime Day is still continuing — they have the Samyang 14mm f/2.8 IF ED UMC for Canon for $223.20. This lens is regularly $279. This deal expires in less than 2 hours or when sold out.

The Lonely Speck calls this “arguably the best, most affordable lens for astrophotography”.

As with other Prime Day deals, this deal requires an Amazon Prime membership and is only available while quantities last. You see the discounted price at checkout (if you have an Amazon Prime Membership or sign-up for a free trial.)

B&H Today Only: WD 8TB Elements USB 3.1 Hard Drive for $149

For today only, B&H Photo Video has the WD 8TB Elements Desktop USB 3.1 Gen 1 External Hard Drive for $149.95. This is a fantastic price for a 8 TB harddrive.

We don’t know which hard drives are inside this enclosure, but WD hard drive deals have been especially popular because WD has in the past used either “Red” or “White” 8 TB Western Digital hard drives inside these external drive enclosures. With previous models, the drives could be removed from the enclosure and used in a NAS, for significant savings over buying the ‘bare’ drives alone.

You can also consider the Seagate Backup Plus Hub 8TB External Desktop Hard Drive + 2mo Adobe CC Photography for $139.99 from Amazon Prime Day deals.

Amazon Lightning Deal: Datacolor Spyder5PRO for $99.99

This item comes up every year around Amazon Prime Day — the Datacolor Spyder5PRO for $99.99 (reg. $178). This deal will likely be sold out before it expires in 5 hours.

eBay Flash Coupon Sale: $25 off purchases of $119+ Until 11PM PT

eBay is running a flash coupon sale: take $25 off purchases of $119+ with coupon code PRIMO119. The coupon should work on everything camera-related, so it’s handy if you are looking for something just above $120. The sale ends tonight at 11PM PT (2AM ET tomorrow).

Many authorized dealers do list items on eBay. For example, you can save $25 on the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM at Adorama via eBay (authorized dealer), net $100!

Amazon Lightning Deal: Movo GH800 CF Gimbal for $159.96

This item comes up every year around Amazon Prime Day — the Movo GH800 Carbon Fiber Professional Gimbal Tripod Head with Arca-Swiss Quick-Release Plate is only $159.96. This deal expires at 3 PM ET (or when sold out).

It’s made of heavy duty carbon fiber, and supports 30+ pounds of weight, and features an aluminum Arca-swiss style plate assembly. A popular deal every year!
