July 4th Savings For Your Holiday Weekend | Deal Dash

By Anthony Thurston on July 3rd 2015

Heading into the 4th of July weekend here in the USA, you can be sure that there are a ton of great deals to be had. Today, I wanted to highlight three deals that should help make your lives easier, and/or improve the quality of your imagery.

WD 2TB My Passport Ultra Portable Hard Drive

If you are looking for a good, solid, portable hard drive that you can use to carry a large portion of your images, or maybe to use as a backup solution, then look no further. Western Digital’s WD My Passport Ultra 2TB drive offers you the ability to carry a ton of images, in a small and easily portable package.

Normally these drives go for over $130, but right now you can get your hands on this drive for under $80 thanks to B&H’s 4th of July savings event. 2TB for $80 sounds like a pretty darn good deal to me. If you agree, you can get your hands on one over at B&H here. It even comes in Red, Blue, and Titanium, if black is not your style.

Zeiss Touit 32mm f/1.8

If you are shooting a Fujifilm X-Series or Sony E (not FE) then this lens is one is probably on your to-buy list, or should be if it isn’t. Zeiss lenses are known for their superb image quality and exceptional build quality, and the Touit line is no different.

The 32mm F/1.8 is a great portrait lens for these APS-C camera systems, offering a standard field of view similar to 50mm on a full frame or 35mm SRL. Normally priced at around $800 these lenses are a bit of a stretch for many people, but for a limited time, you can grab one for $499, a cool savings of $200. If you are interested, you can find them over on B&H here.

Sigma 105mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM Macro

Sigma’s 105mm macro is one of the most well-regarded macro lenses out there right now. It provides an excellent 1:1 image quality while also giving you plenty of working room so you don’t have to be right on top of your subject like you do with some short focal length macro lenses.

The best part of all, you can now get your hands on this lens for only $769, a full $200 off the normal asking price of $969. If you like shooting macro imagery and need a better macro lens, this could be a great option for you. You can grab one now over on B&H here.

New Gear Now Available

In addition to sharing deals, we will also let you know about new gear that is now available. Obviously, most days this section will be omitted, but when there is new stuff to be had, this is where we will feature it.

    I bought that Sigma macro lens a couple of weeks ago, especially after I’d seen test figures somewhere on the net that showed it to perform better than the equivalent Nikkor lens. I’m looking forward to trying it out.
