- Refurbished EF-S 10-18mm STM Wide Angle Lens for $171
Refurbished (not new) Canon EF-S 10-18mm STM wide angle lens for $171 with free shipping.
Includes a 1-year warranty.
Normally sells for about $270.
Be sure your Canon SLR camera works with EF-S lenses.
Such lenses will not work on older cameras.
We use this lens with a Canon T6i SLR camera.
It is perfect when taking photos of buildings, structures, statues, or bedrooms where we want to capture a wide area in the picture.
Also works great when trying to capture people plus the whole surrounding area, such as musicians on stage or a crowd at a baseball game, where capturing more of the surrounding area helps tell a more complete story in the photo.
If you are looking to take photos of individual people (headshots, wedding photos, or action shots), this is definitely not the right lens.

- Sony X1000 4K Digital Camcorder for $200
Sony X100 HD Action Camcorder with 4K recording and digital image stabilization is on clearance for $200.
Normally sells for at least $300.
Records onto MicroSD memory cards.
To record in full 4K (2160p) quality, you need to use a UHS-II/U3 MicroSD memory card.
Most other MicroSD cards, including UHS-1 and Class-10 cards, work with 1080p but are too slow to handle full 4K recording.
A 64GB UHS-II/U3 card would run about $37 and should store about 20 to 30 minutes of 4K video.
