The Friday Sale in pictures

Welcome to the Friday Sale. First, for DSLR bargain hunters, we have another sub-$500 DSLR kit for you. This time is a Samsung version of a Pentax DS* DSLR! Yes, this camera can take millions of Pentax K-mount lenses from throughout the centuries. Next we have a waterproof carry-around camera. Then we have a wooden framed digital photo frame - to showcase your favorite pictures all the time - and no need to print! The last item in our debut friday sale walkabout is for those with high-drain electronics that take AA batteries. Don't waste your money on single use alkaline or lithium. Get rechargeables! They are good for the earth and good for the pocket. These are ideal if you drain the batteries quickly (eg every week). If you don't drain them that fast, then something like the Sanyo Eneloops might be even better for you.

    Wedn Aug 22, Movers and shaker deals at Amazon

    A quick look:

  • The 40D continues to do very well in Amazon pre-orders. The body only option ($1300) is outselling (I should say out-pre-ordering) the 40D outfit bundled with the 28-135 EF lens (costs $200 more).
  • Kodak Z712 IS $210 via Beach Caera (with image stabilization!)
  • Pentax Optio W30 $230 via Adorama
  • Fuji A800 $142, Fuji A820 $148, Fuji A900 $162 (both use SuperCCD sensors)
  • Sony A100H (with the 18-200 f3.5-6.3 DT lens) $964
  • Also hot is the A720-IS pre-order at the bargain price of $250. This camera is destined to become a value-packed model by the start of the 2007 holiday shopping season.
  • Samsung S630 $90
  • Kodak V1003 $218
  • Nikon D40X body only $642
  • Samsung NV3 $190
  • Fuji finepix Z5fd $170 (nice price and 1/2.5" SuperCCD) - including the sleek looking Chocolate-Brown color!
  • Nikon Coolpix S6 (wifi capable) $209 via Beach Camera
  • Canon Digital Rebel XT 8MP Digital SLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 Lens (Black) $578
  • Panasonic FX100K $350 via Vanns of Montana (megapixels by the pound!)
  • Sony N2 $299. Going under $300 again. Will we see a 12-megapixel Sony Cybershot N3?
  • Samsung NV20 pre-orders at $350 seems to be moving on up
  • Also hot pre-order items the Panasonic FZ18 at $400 and the Fuji F50fd at $300
  • Fuji S700 $194 via Beach Camera (bargain price super zoom, but no stabilization)
  • Sony T100 $341 (with the announcement of the Cybershot T200, the price of the previous generation of T-series cameras will start to slide). Bargain hunters, start paying attention :)
  • Nikon D40x 10.2MP Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED II AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor Lens $750
  • Fuji S6000fd $325 before rebate (as long as it is in-stock this is a bargain!)
  • Nikon Coolpix L10 $100
  • More hot-preorders, the colorful Samsung L730 and L830 are available for $170 and $180 on pre-order. Image where the price will go once they start shipping. Samsung is very serious on grabbing market share, because let's face it, these models were built as market share grabbers!

    Deal of the day: Sanyo Xacti VPC-E1 waterproof hybrid @ $350

    Hello dear readers, you may have noticed by now a new template and look and feel of this blog, while preserving some of its "chaotic charm". Please feel free to tell us what you think about this compared to the previous look! Thanks :)



    Today's gold box daily deal at Amazon is from the world of camera and photo. It is a hybrid camcorder and digital camera from Sanyo, but with a twist: It is also waterproof. Today's daily deal price is $350 for the Sanyo Xacti VPC-E1. It sells at bellweather J&R for $450. It is available in three colors. More details at the links above and below.

    Sunday, August 19, 2007

    Coming soon: New blog template and format!

    In the next few hours this blog will get a makeover, a more streamlined look - but don't worry it will still have the chaotic feel you have all grown to love ;-)

    Basically I will be using one of the blogger pre-existing templates. The one currently used has had way too many customizations and has gone out of control :-)

    But if you have any suggestions or preferences or feedback on the old or new look, please feel free to leave a comment! I promise I won't be offended (easily) :)

  • Refurbished digital camera deals at RefurbDepot

    Refurbished digital camera deals at RefurbDepot.com. They are refurbished like-new with a 90-day warranty. These are not brand new! You have the option to purchase an additional three year warranty for extra cost. As always do compare prices before buying! This may be a good way to buy some of the harder to find models, or the ones that are 2-4 years old and hard to find on sale as brand-new. Here are some models that might be of interest, along with my opinion:

  • Canon 5D body only $2150
  • Canon A-series: the brand new ones only cost a bit more
  • Canon G7 $398
  • Canon S2 IS $240
  • Canon SD550 $220 (7mp 1/1.8" sensor!)
  • Fuji A345 $86
  • Fuji E510 $110
  • Fuji E550 $119 has RAW! probably the cheapest camera to experiment with RAW with!
  • Fuji F10 $190
  • Fuji F700 $126
  • Fuji Finepix Z1 $130
  • Konica Minolta DiMage G400 $100 (for old times sake?)

    Amazon best seller deals (late night Monday Aug 13)

    To quickly check up on the deals mentioned above, visit the Amazon website here or click on the Amazon logos in this blog.

  • Canon SD800 IS $292 (starts at 28mm)
  • Canon A550 $137 (one of the best bang for the buck models)
  • Canon A630 $194 (another value buy if you want a 1/1.8" sensor)
  • Canon S3 IS $296 (good price for a good stabilized long-zoom)
  • Sony S650 $120 (Sony has never been so cheap! - in a good way)
  • Fuji S700 $203 (a great entry-level long zoom for those on a budget)
  • Canon Digital Rebel XT 8MP Digital SLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 Lens (Black) $580 via Beach Camera
  • Panasonic TZ3 black $300 via Crutchfield, TZ3A blue same price via Vanns (one of the most fun cameras around!)
  • Canon G7 $489 via Beach
  • Kodak Z712-IS $230 via J&R world (another good stabilized long zoom for its price)
  • Nikon D80 10.2MP Digital SLR Camera Kit with 18-135mm AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor Lens $900 via Cameta Camera (the stunningNikon ads were not unfounded!)
  • Nikon D40x 10.2MP Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED II AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor Lens $750
  • Sony W55, various colors, starting at $185 (another low-priced Sony!)
  • Fuji S6000fd $336 before rebate (one of the best bang for the buck because it features the 6mp SuperCCD sensor from Fuji that has a noticeable noise advantage over all other sensors of similar size)
  • Olympus Stylus 770SW $340 via Cameta (drop-proof, shockproof, but not idiotproof)
  • Pentax Optio W30 $230 via Adorama (designed to be okay with some water, its claim to fame)
  • Fuji Finepix F40fd $190 (not as good at low noise at the 6mp Fuji SuperCCD models, but given the price it is worth a few looks)
  • Sony H9 $444 (is it me or is the price dropping increasing after the reviews came out?)
  • Samsung S630 black $93, silver for $91 (the Kodak C513 may have company at $80 by the time it is released!)
  • Fuji F5fd wine red $165 (nice price!)
  • HP R967 $230
  • Sony H7 $373
  • Olympus SP-550Uz $416 (the other 18x superzooms are starting at $400, this will slide there soon)

    Top sellers around the net this very moment

    At OneCall.com, the Panasonic LZ3 at $130 leads the way, followed by the Canon SD850 IS, Sony H9, Sony T20 pink, Sony W200, Panasonic FZ50K (clearance), Canon SD750, Sony T100 red, Panasonic TZ3 blue, and Nikon Coolpix S50 red, ...

    Among the DSLRs at OneCall, the top sellers are: Nikon D80 body only, Olympus E510 with 2-lens kit (newer smaller kit lenses), Canon 30D body only, Nikon D40 with 18-55 DX, ...

    Meanwhile at J&R World, the top seller is the Nikon Coolpix S50 silver at $260, followed by the Canon A530 at $120, Canon A550 at $135, Olympus Stylus 1000 (with free 256mb SD card) $200, Sony W55 in three colors (same price), Nikon L12, Canon SD800-IS at $300 even (remember this one starts at 28m eq), Panasonic LS70 silver $120, and Samsung S630 black at $100 even. The first long zoom in the list is the Panasonic TZ3 blue, while the first DSLR is the Nikon D40 with 18-55 DX kit lens followed by the Nikon D80 with 18-135 DX kit lens.

    At Adorama, you can have a blast for the past, the Sony T1 is available for $200, the Nikon Coolpix S2 for $135, Canon SD30 for $175, GE A730 for $100 even or GE G1 for $150 and free shipping.

    The Circuit City selection has expanded significantly the last few years, as they now have almost 200 different retail models available on their website. The top sellers right now? Panasonic TZ3 black (on sale for $313), Canon A550, Canon Sd1000, Canon Sd850IS, Sony W55 pink, Canon A560, Casio EX-Z75 red and black, Fuji S700 (low riced zoom, no IS/OS/VR), and Canon A630. The first DSLR listed is the Nikon D40 with 18-55 DX lens, followed of course by the Canon Digital Rebel XTi (400D) with EF-S kit lens, followed by a similar kit for the Digital REbel XT 350D, and then the new sleek and sexy Olympus E410 with the two-lens kit, and then back-to-back the Canon 30D fighting off the Nikon D80

    B&H Photo does not provide an option to sort by best sellers, but you can check for more expensive. And the winner is, the Hasselblad H3D-39 for around $29,000. Among the 35mm or smaller formats, the Canon 1Ds Mark II and Canon 1D Mark III squeeze the Leica M8 in between them as it sells for around $5000. The next most expensive camera is the Nikon D2Xs and its faster D2Hs counterpart, followed by the Canon full-frame EOS 5D, followed by the Fuji S5 Pro.

    Meanwhile Best Buy's top seller is the Kodak Z712-IS, followed by the blockbuster Canon SD1000, HP M537 (6mp, 3x, $110 - low price sells!), Casio EX-Z700 gray at $130, Casio EX-Z75 pink at $200, Kodak C613, Nikon L3, Sony W55, Samsung S730, Sony W200 and a lot more... On the DSLR front at Best Buy, the top spot right now belongs to the Canon Digital Rebel 350D with 18-55 EF-S kit lens followed by the Nikno D40x, the Digital Rebel XTi 400D w/ kit lens, the Sony A100 with 18-70 DT, and the Nikon D40 kit... The first non-Canon/Nikon DSLR is the Panasonic L1 with bundled Leica lens currently on sale at $1000 which explains why it's selling well. The lens alone sells for around $900 at B&H Photo! BARGAIN ALERT!

    8/7/07 Camera and Photo deals round-up

  • HP R837 (7mp, 3x optical) $180 online at Office Depot
  • New calendar of workshops published by Adorama. Workshops start at $150 each, details here. Bryan Peterson, Arlene Collins and Bob Krist are some among the teachers. Bryan Peterson is offering the Master session (10am-5pm) Understanding Exposure and Learning to See Creatively. If the title sounds familiar, he is the author of the book with the same name!
  • Free photography basics online classes by HP. Details (four classes in photography including a beginners, beyond the basics, baby photos, and camera to printer class)
  • Walmart advertises the new Kodak M-series M753 for $150 even
  • Lots of daily deals at Cameratown! including Olympus, Nikon, MWave, CF cards, Axion, Lexar, Canon, Panasonic and a lot more!

  • Great Deal on Nikon D40 + 18-135 DX lens for $570 at Amazon???

    Great Deal on Nikon D40 + 18-135 DX lens for $570 at Amazon??? The camera sells for $533 when bundled with the 18-55 DX lens, so you can essentially upgrade to the 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor Lens for just $37 more!

    When you compare the Nikon D80 bundles, the difference between the 18-55 kit and the 18-135 kit is close to $150!

    The lens in the picture is the 18-55, not the 18-135. There is a possibility this may be a pricing error, instead of a special offer, so keep that in mind as well!
