WORLD's BEST DSLR DEAL: Nikon D3100 with 18-55 & 55-200mm: $339!

This is usually a great deal at $499, and now a complete steal at $339 — with free shipping! No, neither lens is VR, and yes, it's refurbished, which is usually just like new, minus the fancy box — but for $339 it's the best deal ever on a complete DSLR system.

I buy refurbished; I just ordered a Canon 320EX for myself on sale as well. The 320EX is Canon's best small flash today.

 

DEALS: Panasonic Lumix specials.

DEAL: ATH-M50x headphones & TASCAM DR-05: $189. It's like getting the recorder for free.

DEAL: Sennheiser HD 650 top pro headphones for $344.95.

Studio Lighting Deal

Everyone asks me how I light my product photos. I use a 1990s Novatron three-light kit.

Novatron doesn't make them like they used to, so here's the same thing, for even less money, from Adorama:

Adorama Strobe deal

Adorama Three Strobe Set.

Adorama has a $400 three-light strobe set, perfect for portraits and product photography.

It includes three monoblock strobe heads, three stands, and two umbrellas (the third strobe is used as a catchlight from the rear without needing an umbrella).

It also includes a big case about 37" long. The first 50 orders will get a free upgrade to a case with wheels; otherwise, the regular basic case isn't that exciting if you plan to have to haul it around.

These three strobes each plug in the wall with three power cords.

They each have an integral slave, so use your camera's pop-up or shoe-mounted flash on Manual to fire all the strobes together. Of course you can use additinal wireless, radio and IR slaves if you like.

These strobes also operate on battery power if you want to buy additional battery packs, one for each strobe.

The strobes have variable power and modeling lights, and of course to conserve the batteries the modeling lights don't light on battery power.

Flash meters are nice, but I don't use one. Just shoot at about f/16 in manual exposure mode at your lowest ISO, look at your LCD, and adjust the aperture (or lights) to taste.

 

ScanCafe News and Deal

ScanCafe just extended their 21% discount deal for new customers through the end of the year.

ScanCafe also has added a USA Express option for even faster photo scanning turn-around, and now also scans movie film and transfers video. See it all at their site.

 

Help me help you         top

I support my growing family through this website, as crazy as it might seem.

The biggest help is when you use any of these links when you get your goodies. It costs you nothing, and is this site's, and thus my family's, biggest source of support. eBay is always a gamble, but all the other places always have the best prices and service, which is why I've used them since before this website existed. I recommend them all personally.

Thanks for reading!

Mr. & Mrs. Ken Rockwell, Ryan and Katie.
