    OMG! I didn't even look in the camera and photography equipment. I could have used one too! Look forward to influx of units on ebay after the resellers likely took full advantage of this mistake in the hopes that amazon would honor it. I could have used one too! I wouldn't have even been greedy... just 1 :(

    Eh, Sony just made a camera that I'd actually consider to be an all-around upgrade in their A7R IV, and it won't be going on sale any time soon :D

    Well, looking at the SD thread on it, you apparently had to be shopping between about 12:00AM and 12:30AM on Monday to get the "deal", so don't feel too bad.

    Dangit! I was up then too. :cry:

    I wouldn't have even tried to milk it--just buy a nice Canon body and lens that I've always wanted. :cry:

    :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    The funny thing is I saw the picture of a mac pro case recently, the 'trash can' and remembered that scene from van wilder involving a trash can:
    https://tenor.com/view/let-loose-mexican-food-cant-gif-13197970

    If someone did that with a new mac pro that would be terribly expensive. :eek:

    and ironically the page that had that gif also had this as a related gif: :LOL:
    https://tenor.com/view/let-it-go-elsa-disney-disney-princess-queen-gif-3597315

    If we included vases, it doubles the count. :LOL:

    Yeah, this was the miss of a century. Picking up $5k of camera gear for $200 would have made up for everything I've missed out on in my entire life. :eek:

    Read about the camera deal on /. this morning. Funny stuff. I'm shocked they honored the price.

    Yeah, same here. I just got her a t3i from here, but a new 4k camera would have been the cat's meow. Not to mention finally getting myself a nice Canon setup. And yes, one could have much worse problems...

    4k is... hard. From a general consumer perspective where video AF is desirable, only Canon makes cameras that can do that unfailingly, and those come with a stack of caveats themselves.

    Yep, but for what my friend uses it for (taping auditions), it would just be a nice and easy bump up in quality. But no deal so no way...

    I've contacted two Amazon reps now - seems like that $10 promo for the "Spend $100, get $10" was a farce lol.
    Twice the rep says I would get it credited into my account. So far, nothing.

    "from qualifying vendors" D:
    Or something like that. You may still get it, but I wouldn't hold my breath if I didn't buy from Amazon or AmWaDe.

    That's the thing - the RAM kit I bought was sold directly by Amazon.
    I think that's what bothers me - I followed everything to a T and they're still trying to weasel out of it.

    *Update - just got the $10. Amazon cutting it close with only 2 hrs left in the day lol*

    Worth keeping an eye on Warehouse Deals stuff for the occasional "Prime 20% off discount will be applied at checkout" in bold. I don't know how/when/why that will show up next to something, but there it was on a Zotac RTX 2080 AMP (triple fan) for $602 - 20%, - 5% Amazon Business Visa, $457 out the door notax.

    Samsung NX1 does video af very well, and uses the full 6.5k readout for 4k recording, along with h265 recording. Too bad they discontinued it. If the next a7s does 4k60 maybe I'll have a reason to upgrade.

    I remain surprised to this day that Samsung made such an effort with such success and then bowed out.

    That's the hope overall, if such a camera will ever exist. Sony, like Canon and Panasonic, have higher-end cameras that such releases will absolutely cannibalize despite the execution being vastly different. Still, if Sony gets it right they can simply charge more; for the capabilities of the A7R IV into a proper video camera, they could get away with a US$5,000 MSRP. They'd still be out of stock for months after release.

    Have been away from the game quite some time
    Busy with family, career and just life in general. I used to do a fair amount of trading on here as well as on Anandtech and AMDMB forums. I had admin assist me in resetting my account hoping it would pull over and allow me to message kuurus regarding the windows 10 and office items he has for sale but it didn't.

    I have Heatware at 94-0-0 and would hope that speaks for itself.
