Sony A300, Nikon D200 with 18-200 DX VR lens, and other deals at Amazon

Let's see what's moving on up in terms of sales popularity at Amazon!

DSLR Deals!
First up, a new DSLR! The Sony A700, with the 16-105 DT lens is offered at $1900 by Tigerdirect, Crutchfield, OneCall, and J&R World on Amazon.


Meanwhile the Nikon D200 with the 18-200 DX VR lens is offered at $1920 by Cameta Cameras. The lens itself costs for just under $700, which prices the D200 body at around $1225 in this bundle.

Canon answers that with the Canon 30D with the kit lens for $900, offered at that price by Adorama.

For those in the $500 range, Cameta Cameras have created a tempting Nikon D40 bundle, which includes the kit lens, 4gb card, Nikon bag, and a couple of other trinkets as well.

If you want more megapixels, the Nikon D40X, body only, is offered at $535, but please keep in mind that both of these camers do not play well with lenses without a focus motor. Hopefully Nikon won't release more cameras with this non-photographer-friendly limitation. Nikon, are you listening? :)

Canon counters that with their own affordable DSLR, the Canon Digital Rebel XT, body only, black, is offered at $400 even. That's right folks. You can get a Canon DSLR for just $400! Granted, there are two new D-Rebel models - the XTi and XSi.


Sleek and not-so-sleek compacts!
The red Casio EX-S880 is offered by 17th Street Photo for the round price of $200! This is a very sleek camera, using a ceramic lens, but obviously don't expect it to behave like a Nikon D3 with a $2000 lens!

Kodak's V803 is offered at $147, sold and shipped by Amazon, and uses a 1/1.8"-ish sensor, compared to the smaller 1/2.x" sensors found in the majority of cameras in this segment.

Even lower price, at $116, you can get the Kodak M753. Despite the low price, this is actually using a LiIon battery, as are all of Kodaks new M-series cameras.

From the world of pre-ordering, the Fuji F100fd is offered at $380 as a pre-order, but Amazon offers both a pre-order and a 30-day post-order price guarantee! Please note that according to dpreview this camera does not have shutter priority and aperture priority. Which ruins this camera for some people.

Also from Fuji, the colorful Z10fd is offered at around $150, depending on body color - and they have plenty of those!

Last but not least, the Olympus Stylus 790SW, in multiple colors, is available from J&R World for around $250.


Accessorize!
For $16, you can get the Bushnell Tripod Window Mount. Also on a tight budget at $13 offered by a 3rd party is the Ambico V-0640 40-inch Fashion Tripod with Two-Way Panhead and Quick Shoe. Just don't expect these to perform like the ones that cost 10x more!

Continuing with the low budget theme, Cameta Cameras is offering the CTA Digital DB-FT1 Rechargeable Digital Camera Battery - equivalent to Sony NP-FT1, for just 49 each!
