4-day Memorial Day weekend sale at Radio Shack

Radio Shack features four digital cameras and some decently priced accessories as part of their 4-day Memorial Day weekend sale that ends tonight. So, let's take a look!

If you like the new Kodak M-series cameras, and 3" LCD is a must, and staying at $130 or so is another requirement, then perhaps you might be interested in the Kodak M883, an 8-megapixel camera with a 3x optical zoom lens. It also has face detection and a metal body. And as a bonus you get a 256mb memory card instantly. Yes, you read right, a 256MB card. Yes, this is the May 2008 ad :)

Next up, at $150, you can have the red Samsung L100 (we presume), with a 10mp sensor and a 3x optical zoom, with face detection and such. Radio Shack says the red color is an exclusive for their chain, which matches the Radio Shack red color :) The price is $150, but you also receive a $10 Radio Shack gift card instantly with purchase, which you could turn around and spend on accessories and such!


If you want to spend a bit more, the stylish Casio EX-Z80K can be yours for $180, and that includes a free 1gb Sandisk memory card, which goes for about $10 or less when on sale. The Exilim has an 8mp 1/2.5" sensor, 3x optical zoom, 2.6" LCD, and a YouTube video mode.

The last camera in the circular is the GE A735, available in red or blue, and comes with a bonus 256MB memory card. This is a 7mp camera with a 3x optical zoom lens, and 2.5" LCD display.

And that's what the 50" Targus tripod is at $7.50. Obviously you can't compare it in terms of features and durability to a Borgen Manfrotto or the other big name brands, but you are paying $7.50. That's almost disposable price. You can always keep this as a backup, or the trunk of the car, or use it in situations where you don't want to ruin or risk your favorite or primary tripod.

Also from Targus, a universal memory card readers goes for $5. We are not sure which memory card formats it reads, but we assume it should take all the major formats. Be sure to check the Radio Shack or Targus sites for more details. The Radio Shack site can be quickly accessed to the graphic ad shown above!

They also have two Sandisk memory card specials, the 4gb SD goes for $28 which is not a bad price, and the 2gb SD goes for $18, which is not bad for retail, but not as good when you compare online. The 4gb is obviously a bigger bang for the buck.

And speaking of memory, they also feature an 8gb Sandisk USB flash drive for $40, and no rebates. That comes out to $5 per gigabyte which is a good price.

Plus, you can get a 40-pack of Radio Shack branded AA or AAA alkaline batteries for $15. We recommend using rechargeables instead, but there are situations where using AA/AAA alkalines is a better option. Well, as long as you recycle them, then you don't have to feel guilty ;-)
