What's new at Circuit City and Best Buy this week?

Let's see what we have this week advertised by Circuit City and Best Buy. As always, retailer prices are usually higher than online discounter, but if you need an item in a hurry or you have a gift card to use for a particular retailer store, these can be handy.

First, let's look at Best Buy. At $100 you can get a nice entry-level bundle, the HP M547 in an exclusive green-ish color with a matching case. This is a 6mp, 3x optical camera with a 2.4" LCD. Nice! Next up, the Kodak M883 is $180, the Sony W90 is $250, Kodak V1253 at $270, Panasonic TZ3 for $300 even, and the brand new Canon SD 870 IS for $350.

On the DSLR front, we have four Best Buy bundles, with the Sony A100 with a 2-lens kit for $800, the Nikon D40x with a two lens kit for $900, the brand new Canon 40D with the EF 28-135 and 70-300 for $2050 and the big Canon 5D with the Canon Pixma Pro 9000 photo printer for $3500.

As far as accessories, the Kodak 10" Easyshare SV-1011 digital photo frame is $200, while PNY's 2gb 133x P-SD2G-133W-RF3 Optima Pro SD memory card is $30. With this memory card you get a bonus of 10 images downloads from the National Geographic. The Kingston 4gb SD4/4GBKR HC card is $40, the same price as the Fujifilm 2gb xD card. Sandisk's 4gb Extreme III CF card, the SDCFX3-4096-001 is $70. For USB backup users, the PNY 2gb flash drive with Readyboost, P-FD02GHSP-RF is $20 and the 4gb version is $40, model P-FD04GHSP-RF.

Last but not least, if you buy any of the advertised digital cameras, you get a free $@5 prepaid photo center card you can use at the Best Buy Photo Center powered by Kodak Gallery.

And now on to Circuit City where the brand new Sony T200 is bundled with a 1gb free memory card for $400, and the W90 with 1gb free card for $250. Or perhaps the Sony S700 at $140. To go with those, a 4gb Sony MS Pro Duo, MSXM4GS is $70, or a 2gb Sandisk SDMSPD2048A11 MS Pro Duo for $30.

Canon has four cameras featured, with the S5 IS at $400, the SD870IS (yes, that's the one that starts at 28m wide) for $350, the mass-market SD1000 for $200 even with a free 1gb SD card, and the Canon A702 IS with 1gb SD card for $250.

And now the moment we've all been waiting for, the Kodak C513 has arrived. Yes, this 5mp, 3x optical zoom camera is generating some buzz because it uses a Kodak CMOS sensor, instead of the CCD sensors used by most of the major manufacturers. The price is $80 and it is priced just right to grab market share during the holiday shopping season.

Neanwhile Casio offers the really tiny Exilim EX-S880 with a 1gb card for $220 (not bad!), while Nikon's D40X with the 18-55 DX lens is $700. A few more memory card deals round out the circular advertisement.
