Ironic that, less than three weeks after my "Your Hard Drive Just Failed" post, one of my hard drives failed. The vendor is replacing the drive under warranty, but had my files not been backed up, I would be in a very bad situation.
 
I know that some of you moved on my suggestion to use external hard drives for your backups after my last post, but I also know that most people are not adequately backing up their files. If you are in this category, the time to backup is now.
 
Here are the external hard drives at B&H.

B&H has the Hoya 77mm Circular Polarizing Pro 1 Digital Multi-Coated Glass Filter for $140 shipped - a good quality filter at a good price.
 
Update: After posting this deal, I received this note from a reader:
 
"Amazon has the same filter for $99."
 
My response was similar to this:
 
I saw that too – but I’m concerned about the super low price along with a retailer, PlusDigUSA, that I don’t recognize. Crawford's Superstore and danicamera are also unknown-to-me retailers listed on that page with the same price. Most specifically, I’m concerned that, if these are the same specific filters, the product could be counterfeit – a big problem in the filter market right now.
 
In another listing on Amazon.com, Crawford's Superstore (again), has this filter for $139.99. I am not familiar with this retailer – and am wondering why they are selling on both pages with significantly different pricing if the item is identical.
 
The third page on Amazon.com for this filter is from a retailer named Dbroth. I have heard of this retailer before - they are likely trustworthy. Their price is the normal $186.00 - though they include a useful LensPen and a blower.
 
Adorama has the same $186.00 price.
 
I fully trust that B&H is selling the real filter – and the price $140.00 appears to be a good one to me. Hopefully that clarifies this question.

I slightly revised the Where To Buy Cameras and Lenses warning page on the site.
 
I seem to be getting an above-average number of emails regarding online scams recently, and therefore want to make sure everyone remains alert.
