    Some recent deals

  • Monster Cable charger + 4 AA NiMH (1800?) $20 at Amazon via OneCall. The mah is low but for those who love Monster Cable and their lifetime warranty this is a good discount.
  • Pentax K100D kit gets its first discount at Amazon, currently hovering around $675 with free shipping. (Price can be dropped with the A9 discount (1.57% off) and if you apply and qualify for their credit card ($30 off + 3% rewards; this applies to various things on Amazon, not just the K100D).
  • $100 camera deal!: HP fixed-lens E-series camera $100 at Amazon (forgot which model number)
  • With the barrage of new camera announcements expect some current cameras to get some big drops to clean up inventory. Such was the recent drop of the Pentax A10 to around $270 at OneCall I believe. I haven't checked today if it is still available.
