Best Buy Sunday paper ads: The Nikon D300 makes a bold debut!

Grab this week's Best Buy circular and turn to page 31. You will find a sidebar ad of the Nikon D300 with the 18-200 DX VR lens for $2540. Add the 70-300 VR lens and the bundle price goes up to $3000 even. But it's also available for $1800 body only. Does Best Buy have enough supplies? Will it be available in all stores in select stores? We blog, you decide!

Meanwhile the GINO, Canon G9, is advertised at $450, and it occupies the back-cover along with two other LCD-cameras, the Canon SD870 IS at $300 even and the Nikon S51 navy blue at $180. For extra juice at a low price, the BP-NKL8 Digipower battery can be had for $20 even.

The D-Rebel has its own bundle, the XTi body, the 18-55 EF-S lens, and an accessory kit that includes a bag, battery and filters for $750. If you don't want the accessory kit, the price is $700.

Also from Canon, the A570IS is at $150 and maeks a great recession camera.

Sony fans have a choice of two Cybershots, the affordable S700, for $120, and the more "stylish" W55 for4 $160. While the prices are nice, be sure to note that prices of MemorySticks are 50% to 100% higher than SD/MMC memory cards. But if you already have MemorySticks or you are a Sony fanboy, then ignore this sentence :)

Accessorize like Ugly Betty!
A 4gb PNY SDHC card is offered at the very reasonable brick and mortar price of $30. The exact model is P-SDHC-4GB4-RF3. Meanwhile a Wenger padded nylon case for compact cameras of various denominations is offered for just $10, model WA-7807-02F000.

More memory cards, for xD-based cameras, the 2gb Fuji xD card is offered at $40, twice as much as an SD equivalent. MemoryStickies can get a 1gb Sony branded MS Pro Duo for $30 - yikes - three times the equivalent of a 1gb SD card.

If you have an Ultra II Sandisk SD card, 2gb costs more, $25 to be precise. Meanwhile DSLR owners may be tempted by the 2gb Extreme III for $40, model SDCFX3-2048-901.

And for an extra storage option, the 4gb PNY USB flash drive with Ready Boost (as if Vista ever has enough memory) goes for $35, and the 2gb version for $20.

This concludes our review of the Best Buy circular ad for this week. Shop early and often!
