Each year, the day after Thanksgiving in the united states kick-starts the Christmas shopping season. This Friday is Black Friday. Doesn’t sound that good you might say… well, it is said the name originated from the heavy pedestrian and vehicle traffic occurring on the day after Thanksgiving – coloring the streets black. Later an alternative explanation suggested that this day marked the transition to profit and thus starting to write numbers in the books with black ink instead of negative red. Which ever way it was – It is a chance for you to get good deals… And this is exactly what I will try to gather for you here!
Cyber Monday is the online, and these days probably a much bigger brother to Black Friday. It was born after online shopping became much more popular and people started to avoid the rush to the stores, buying from the comforts of their own home during the weekend.
I will keep this post updated during the weekend as new interesting deals pop up. I aim for deals directly related to 3d, but also peripherals such as print, portfolio website and hosting, photography and other cool stuff a 3d artist might use or need. If you find something interesting, let me know about it so I can plug it in.
So lets start…

Refurbished CANON Gear
Canon offers Black Friday discounts of up to 30% off on select products. If a new camera is out of your budget, then a refurbished one by Canon is surly better than the usual 2nd hand-pick.
Canon PowerShot S100
I’ve seen this little one in the hands of Peter Guthrie during the visit to Venice this year. For the size of it and the great pricing it has on Amazon currently, I’m seriously considering getting it as the “always on me” camera instead of my Lumix GF2.
You can see Peter’s photos taken with it here – Venice Architecture Biennale 2012.

They make the coolest accessories to apple products such as the iPhone, iPad and the nano iPod. I’m getting the CHUBBY Stylus for my kids, since they abuse my iPad way too much with the bamboo duo I have currently 😉
They also have their own take on a duo type stylus…
I hope to get more stuff here during the weekend, so stay tuned 😉
