Digital camera deals for the recession at Staples!

The digital camera specials at Staples this week (April 20 through April 26, 2008) are perfectly matched for the recession, at least in terms of price. We have not one, but two $100 camera deals, and both of these cameras have a 3x optical zoom lens.

Obviously you can't expect miracles from a one-hundred dollar camera, so please do adjust your expectations. The cameras in question as the Kodak Easyshare C713 (7mp, 3x, 2.4" LCD). You can actually save more on this if you buy it together with a Kodak digital picture frame. See ad, website or store for more details.

The other $100 camera is the HP R742, also with a 7-megapixel sensor, 3x optical zoom, and a 2.5" LCD screen. It even has video clips with sound :)

Climbing up the price ladder we find the Olympus FE-310, which happens to be a 2008 model. At $150, you get 8mp, 5x optical zoom, 2.5" LCD, and face-detection.

Last but not least, at $200, we find the old Canon Powershot SD750. This is indeed old for an ultracompact P&S camera, since their lifecycles are barely 12 months. The biggest attraction perhaps for ths camera is a 3" LCD, but there is no optical viewfinder. Canon seems to be one of the few companies that tries to keep the OVFs in at least some of their digital cameras. Not so with the SD750 because they traded off the OVF for the bigger (at the time) 3" LCD. Also 7mp 1/2.5" sensor, and 3x optical zoom lens. This does not start at wide-angle. The wide angle models are the SD800IS and SD870IS.
