This week at Ritz and Wolf cameras (from the Sunday paper)

Let's zoom into this week's Ritz and Wolf Cameras sunday paper circular ad to see what they have in-store for us for the President's Day weekend.

To celebrate the day, they have the Presidents Penny sale, where you get an extra item for just 1c more. We'll mention those as we go through the ad.

The Nikon D40 with the 18-55 lens is priced at $500, and if you but it, for just 1c more you can get a fleece-lined coat, an $80 value according to Ritz. A strange combo you ask? We agree!

A more reasonable combo is the Nikon D300 body only at $1800 or $1900 with the 18-55 kit lens (oh the silliness of this kit). For just 1c more you can get either the Quantaray 18-50mm lens or the 55-200 AF lens. The Quantaray lenses are valued at $100 according to Ritz. Quantaray is a house brand used by Ritz. The lenses are manufactured usually by the Japanese "third party" lens maker. We are not sure who makes this particular lens.

The Canon Digital Rebel XTi with the 18-55 EF-S lens is offered at $700. For 1c more you can get the Quantaray 55-200 AF lens.

Lens-wise, the hot Nikon 18-200 f3.5-5.6 AF-S DX VR is offered at $750. You can get this lens at Amazon for under $700.

Back-wise, the Tamrac backpack 4372 is offered at $50, and the Explorer 1 1501 at $300, in black or blue. Also, the Quantaray by Sunpak QSX-6601TM tri-monopod goes for $40. If you remove the center column, it becomes a monopod, thus the tri-monopod name. A more advanced model is the QSX 9002TM for $60, also a tri-monopod.

Compact digital cameras
The bang for the buck Powershot A570 IS is at $150 and a nice price for this Canon. No need to buy it online just to save $5 to $10. Nikon fans have the option to get the Coolpix S51 for $180, with a choice of four fashionable colors. This model has a 3" LCD for those who care. Also with a 3" LCD is the Canon SD750, a slightly older camera which is explains why its price is now down to $200.

The Nikon Coolpix L11 is offered at just $90. That's right a big name camera for under $100. Of course don't expect this to behave like a Nikon DSLR :-)

Panasonic's LZ6-K (black finish) is offered at $130, not bad for a camera with a 6x stabilized zoom lens!

Lights! Camera! Fashion! The Casio EX-Z77 is offered in an exclusive Ritz kit which includes a tripod, case, software and ... a YouTube t-shirt. That's right, a YouTube t-shirt! Available in pink, blue or silver. Yum!

The Fuji S700 (aka S5700) is offered at $200, but keep in mind that this camera does not have optical or sensor-shift stabilization. For just a few more dollars you can get a model with sensor-shift stabilization. Both the Canon SX100 IS and the Panasonic TZ3 are offered at around $230 from Amazon.

If you like wide angle on a budget, the Nikon P50 is offered at $180. However this price is not so hot, you can get it at Amazon for $150 and free shipping.

Last but not least, the first Olympus 18x hyperzoom, the SP-550uz is offered at $330. Clearly a high price :)

There is also a special financing deal, no interest for cameras or camdcorders over $299 if you pay the full amount by December 2008. See store or website for complete details of this special financing offer.

A special purchase, an 8" digital photo frame with a remote control, of unmentioned brand, is offered at $100 even.

For those with need for both SD and microSD memory cards, you can get one 512mb Sandisk card and get a second one for 1c more. So you pay $9 and you get two 512mb Sandisk SD+microSD memory cards.
