    Adorama prints specials extended!

    Adorama prints special prices extended until December 31, 2006. You can find them at Adorama.com or AdoramaPix.com. The specials are:

    * 8x10: $0.99 each
    * 11x14: $1.99 each

    Turn your coins into Amazon Gift Certificates (for FREE!)

    Coinstar, the coin-counting service that converts your big heap of coins into cash for a fee has entered the digital age: If you chose an Amazon gift certificate or other e-gift certificates (music downloads, Starbucks, Borders, etc), they do not charge a conversion fee. So if you have a heap of $63.23 in coins, you get an Amazon gift certificate for exactly $63.23, no fees at all. Gift card choices may vary from city to city, but I believe Amazon is avaiable in all areas...

    Lord of the Rings Trilogy DVD set only $20 at Amazon!

    A great gift idea for all: The Lord of the Rings Trilogy DVDs in either Widescreen or Fullscreen. These are the original theatrical movies, not the extended editions, but for the price of $20 for three movies on six DVDs, nicely packaged is too good to pass up! For hardcore fans the extended editions are a must as well, but for collectors or "completists" who like to get all releases, this is a great price to stock up. Keep in mind that with the new DVDs that contain both the theatrical and extended versions you have to flip the DVD to watch the whole movie because they put half of each movie per side. Very annoying! So it is a better idea to buy each set separately. The price just dropped on Amazon (regularly $30), and this is a limited time offer, and it may go up by the time you are reading this!

  • Theatrical Lord of the Rings Trilogy DVD set - Widescreen

  • Theatrical Lord of the Rings Trilogy DVD set - Fullscreen

    The Nikon Coolpix L4 is available for $100 this week at Ritz and Wolf camera stores. This was advertised in the Sunday paper insert-ad from Ritz/Wolf stores.

    Wow! $80 digital camera from Fuji!

    This week Ritz/Wolf Camera is advertising the 4mp, 3x optical zoom camera the Fuji Finepix A400 for just $80! This is an incredibly low price. Obviously this is a very entry-level camera and it uses xD media cards, but you can't argue with a price of $80! Amazing!

Since there are different times zones, there will probably be various deals.

    Sanyo Eneloops on Amazon! (Eneloop)

    Eneloops are new rechargeable NiMH batteries from Sanyo that retain almost all of their charge over a long period of time (low rate of current discharge). This is a significant advantage over current and previous rechargeable NiMH batteries that lost their charge a lot faster than Li-Ion batteries.

    They are available on Amazon in three packages at the moment. Click on the pictures for the links to Amazon and if you wish to support this blog, you can make a purchase through the link :-)

  • All Sanyo Eneloops at Amazon
  • GE/Sanyo Charger with 4-pack of AA Eneloop NiMH, around $22
  • Compact charger + 2-pack AA Eneloop NiMH for around $15
  • 8pk AA Eneloop NiMH for $20 (down from $25).
  • 4pk AA Eneloop NiMH for around $12.50.
  • 4pk AAA NiMH for around $12.50

    Claims made by GE/Sanyo of energy efficiency of rechargeable Eneloops AA NiMH compared to traditional rechargeable AA NiMHs:

    Older models on clearance at Ritz/Wolf

    I visited a Ritz/Wolf earlier today and I noticed a number of older models in their clearance section. The prices were reasonable for some of the older models (under $250) - especially if it is a hard to find camera and you really want that specific model for various reasons. Some of the models I noticed: Minolta Z5, Z6, X1, Fuji S5100, Nikon 7600, Pentax-something, etc...

    The price for these was much higher: Minolta A2, and a couple of DSLRs (Minolta 5D/7D and Pentax *istD).

    Not sure if you can negotiate these prices...
