Memorial Days deals at Fry's Electronics

So what does the Fry's ad for the Memorial Day Weekend have in-store for us? This is from what was published in the newspaper circular ad by Fry's themselves!

Fans of the Olympus FE-340 will be thrilled to find out they can get it for $177, and they have the option to get a free after mail-in rebate Epson printer as well. They also have a choice of color, pink, black, blue, red or silver. Oh so many choices, maybe get one of each? :) This has an 8mp sensor, 5x optical zoom, and 2.7" LCD, but sadly only uses xD memory cards.

Also from Olympus, the Stylus 850SW is their waterproof and crashproof and dustproof (within limits and specs of course) model, and it goes for $267 and available in multiple colors as well.

If you are a fan of the Canon Powershots, then the Elph SD 1100-IS is offered at$217, also available in a choice of colors, among the available ones of course!

If you are a fan of the Gold Lantern brand (the what?), you can get a 10mp 3x optical zoom camera for $100 after a $60 mail-in rebate. We know nothing about this camera, although it looks like the other entry-level cameras from some of the major manufacturers.

Panasonic on the other hand has some ideas for bargains, the new Lumix FS3 is going for $180, and this is an 8mp 1/2.5" camera, with a 3x optical zoom, 2.5" LCD and MegaOIS.

DSLR World
A big wave of Olympus DSLRs is on sale at Fry's this Memorial day weekend, starting with the Olympus E410, available as body only for $397, with the 14-42 kit lens for $497. This is also the price of the Olympus E510 body only. If you prefer the kit with the 14-42 lens, then you pay $597.

Fry's apparently did not get the memo about the Canon Instant Rebates that went into effect on May 18, 2008, because they advertise the EOS 40D body only for $1100 and the 40D kit (with EF 28-135 we presume) for $1300. Hello Fry's, Canon Instant Rebates are on line #3 :)

A 12" digital photo frame from Gold Lantern can be yours for $188. This lovely features 800x600 resolution, mpeg, mpeg2 amd mpeg4 playback, along with mp3 and jpeg of course, and it comes iwth a remote control.

You can never feed your cameras enough memory, so if you have CF-cameras, consider a 4gb Kingston for $25. SD fans may be interested in a 4gb micro-SDHC kit from Kingston for $20 after a $5 mail-in rebate. The kit includes adapters so you can use the mini-sDHC card in a mini-SD card slot and also a regular SD card slot. So many SDs, so little time!

Patriot is offering a two-pack of 2gb 133x SD cards for the price of $23, which comes out to $23/4gb = $5.50 per gigabyte, which is a reasonable price.

If you are a Sony homer, the 4gb Lexar Memory Stick Pro duo can be yours for just $15 after a $17 mail-in rebate. That is a price shocker since Memorysticks usually cost twice as much. But to get this price, you do have to submit and babysit the rebate, and supplies are limited, so other bargain hunters may have already snatched up all the supplies!

For more on all these, be sure to check the Fry's website.
