Casio EX-Z1200 and Panasonic FX55 specials at OneCall

We have a trio of digital camera specials at OneCall.com, as part of their Weekend Sale. The weekend sale ends at the end of the weekend :)

First up, we have the black Casio Exilim EX-Z1200BK, going for the price of $280, with free 3-day FedEx shipping included. This, as the name suggests, uses a 12-megapixel sensor, and has the usual features, such as a 3x optical zoom lens, some form of image stabilization which is a relatively new thing for Casios, LiIon battery, and SD/MMC memory card support.

At $268, you can get the Panasonic FX55K Black, an 8mp camera with a 28-100mm equivalent MegaOIS lens, LiIon battery and SD/MMC. Panasonic was one of the first companies to offer MegaOIS in just about every camera they make - except their DSLRs - the irony of that! They were also one of the first to offer 28-100mm lenses on their compact FX-series models. Something that was lacking before that, and just like MegaOIS, it caused a number of other companies to offer it in at least some of their own models. The wonders of competition!

Anyways, now to the third model, the Sony DSLR-A700P w/ DT 16-105mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens is offered at $1850. This is Sony's new mid-range DSLR, with 12mp "DX" sensor, and uses the legendary Minolta mount. The "DT" in Sony-Minolta lenses stands for "digital lens" - lenses that are cropped to match the "DX" cropped sensors, so you can only use it with cropped-sensor DSLRs, meaning all the DSLRs made by Sony and Minolta, but you cannot use it on your film SLRs made by Minolta when it was Minolta, before the Konica-Minolta nonsense :)
