I’m going to add some Amazon Prime day deals that should appeal to surf photographers to this page.
My main reason for this post is just to remind you that the main way you can say thank you if you like this site is to purchase something through my Amazon link:
You pay the same price and I get a small commission on a sale if you buy it after clicking on that link.
If you’ve already used my link in the past then thank you – it’s the main reason I can afford to host the site and keep putting up reviews and posts (I’ve nearly finished editing the review of the Salty Surf Housings Basic model, so that should be up tomorrow night)
Prime day has already launched in the UK and so all you readers in the USA here’s what to expect.
- GoPro knockoffs and accessories.
- SD cards from good brands
- A waterproof point and shoot camera.
- possibly some lenses.
Here are the deals that stand out so far:
I use a lot of Sandisk memory cards, alongside Lexar and transcend they’re the three brands that I’ve settled on for all my memory needs, there’s a few deals to be had on Sandisk, you can find them here:
Transcend 64GB Sd card
I’ve used Transcend in the past and not had any issues. I’ve got a 128GB Lexar card coming from the UK Prime day which should keep me going for a while.
Cheap GoPro clone
The TecTecTec! (I love the brand name) action camera is a clear GoPro knockoff, but it shoots 1080p at 60fps, which is the mode I use most on my GoPro, and you can pick it up for $71.49 as part of Prime day.
Peli 1560 wheeled hard case
I took one of these on my month long honeymoon to New Zealand and Samoa and it was ideal for all my camera equipment (at the time I was shooting with a DSLR and had three ports and a water housing all in this case).
The discount isn’t massive, it costs $134.99 on sale but these are hardly ever on sale and they hold there value well second hand too.
Pelican 1690, 1500, 1610 and 1650 cases
These aren’t on sale at the time of posting, but they will be soon and they’re both goopd options for protecting your surf photography gear.
Rokinon (Samyang) lenses
Various focal lengths for various lens mounts are available, I love my Samyang (known as Rokinon in the USA) 8mm fisheyes and these longer focal lengths will give you top image quality and no distortion with a wide field of view.
12mm f2.0 Sony e mount
Rokinon 14mm f2.8 Sony e mount
GoPro accessory pack
There’s a few of these throughout the day, here’s one that has some useful bits in it:
Knog video light for GoPro
This is a powerful, small and waterproof LED light which attaches next to your GoPro for filming when it’s dark. Seems like a good idea, we’ll see what kind of discount Amazon is offering a bit later on:
