Bargain Hunter's Corner

We are testing a new feature, with a self-explanatory title: "Bargain Hunter's Corner". In this corner, we will be posting digital camera bargains from our favorite retailers that may be of interest to our readers. If you have any preferences, feedback, or suggestions, please leave them as a comment to this post!

Please note that prices can change at any time! I have no control over prices (obviously).

If more details or explanations are needed for a particular offer, they will be posted in this sticky post, with the appropriate name and title so you can easily find them.

How to use this feature
The Bargain Hunter's Corner is currently located at the top of the left column of this blog. We will also be having occasional Bargain Hunter Corner features in our Photography Soup round-up.

I am trying to keep the space it occupies on the front page short, so I will be using these shorthand:

  • AR = After Rebate
  • S&H or SH = Shipping and Handling
  • Retailer's name: If there is enough space, I will add the name in parenthesis. If not, you can always mouse over the link to find out who the retailer is. Amazon links have a preview that comes up when you mouse over the link.
  • BH = B&H Photo
  • AMZN =
  • Please note that Amazon refers to products sold on Amazon, by both Amazon and some of their featured 3rd party retailers such as Adorama, J&R World, One Call, Beach Camera, Vanns of Montana, etc. The featured retailers on each product page can change at any time and I have no control over it. I will only be showcasing items that are sold at good prices either by Amazon herself or some of the aforementioned reputable retailers. However, both the price and the featured retailer can change at any time and it is beyond my control.
  • OC =

    Is there any way you can create a separate blog or something for BHC? I'd love to be able to subscribe to it and use it like Slikdeals, specifically for bargain-hunting!

    Thanks for the comment and the suggestions!

    I am looking at different possibilities for more features and usability, but I don't have the resources to turn it into a full time venture. Now if they changed the day to 48 hours instead of 24 I could be doing that for a few hours per day :)
