Father's day camera deals and specials at Sears (The SearsBook)

Sears is seriously serious about getting Father's Day gifts moving out the door with a number of specials!

Free 2gb memory card with camera purchase!
Yes, until June 15, 2008, Sears will be giving you a free 2gb memory card with a camera purchcase. But there are some exclusions: No Sony, no clearance items, no special bundles or discontinued models. This is a great deal!

Affordable Digital Cameras
We start with the Sony S730 going for $130. This is Sony's entry-level Cybershot with a 7mp 1/2.5" sensor, 3x optical zoom and a 2.4" LCD. A step above for those wanting a bit more is the Cybershot W150, currently going for $230, and features a 2.7" LCD display, 8mp 1/2.5" and 5x optical zoom instead.

A great deal at $200, making it a Sears Instant Bargain, is the Nikon Coolpix S550, with a free 1gb memory card and a free matching case. The camera alone sells for $200 at Amazon. Deal alert!

Meanwhile if you are not afraid of the Samsung brand, the L200 with face detection can be yours for just $130. It also has a 10mp 1/2.33" sensor and a 3x optical zoom lens, alongw ith a 2.5" LCD display.

And you can't go wrong with the Canon A590 IS on sale for $160. A nice price, also competitive with Amazon.com. And it has image stabilization and such.

If red is your color, they do have the Kodak M863 on sale for $140, and it has an 8mp sensor, 3x optical zoom lens, a huge 3" LCD (yes, three inches), and face detection too.

A Smartparts 5.6" digital picture frame can make a great gift or gift sidekick for just $50. It has a wood frame, and comes with the Optix Pro software.

More expensive digital cameras
We continue in this segmetn with an 8mp Kodak superzoom with a 12x IS lens going for $225. This borrows a bit from the design of the lovely looking (but perhaps under-performing) Samsung NV-series. 2.5" LCD as well.

Canon's solid gold superzoom is the Powershot S5-IS, on sale for $320 and with the free 2gb memory card deal we talked about. With supply being a bit shaky around the net, you may want to buy it if you want to buy it!

Sony has two superzooms, the Cybershot H10 at $270 and the Cybershot H50 at $500. Be sure to check the reviews as some reviewers have been hammering the poor Cybershot superzooms. And you do have to pay extra for MemoryStick memory cards. No free cards for Sony in this Sears promotion by the way - as we stated at the top of this post.

How about some DSLRs?
The two Canon Digital Rebel D-SLRs are featured prominently in the ad, with the older XTi (400D) along with the 18-55 EF-S kit lens going for $630 or the brand new XSi (450D) with the 18-55 EF-s IS kit lens going for $830. Not bad prices considering that you are also receiving a free Case Logic bag with any Canon SLR purchase. The value of the Case Logic bag is $25 according to the softer side of Sears.

Financing specials sweeten the pie
Yes, you can get 12 months no interest and no payments on total electronics purchases over $299 if you use your Sears Card. Not bad at all Sears fans!

Or if you don't want to carry a financial burnen and pay it off sooner, you can receive 5% in instant savings, again with purchases over $299 and if you use your Sears card. See page three of the Sunday paper circular ad for more details or check the Sears website.

Some other notable high tech gadgets for Dad
How about a 4gb Sansa Clip from Sandisk for just $70, and without any rebates? This lovely tiny mp3 player has an FM tuner and a voice recorder with a built-in microphone too.

If dad prefers plasma over LCD, a Panasonic 42" 720p HDTV is going for a new low price of just $900. Yes, just nine hundred bucks gets you a shiny new Panasonic high definition plasma TV set. Just in time for the NBA Finals!

If you love PNY memory careds, they are on sale as follows:

  • 1gb: $10
  • 2gb: $15
  • 4gb: $25

And last but not least, a 7" Kodak digital picture frame for $80 also gets you a free 1gb SD memory card with purchase. The picture frame includes a remote control and supports most memory cards. Perhaps a good way to use your older memory cards, as feeders for the picture frames :)

If you are ready to jump in the stil expensive Blu-Ray pool, be careful not to get stung by high prices! Sears is advertising the Samsung BD-P1400 for $400 even, and no rebates. This is a 1080p player and it upscales lower resolution DVDs, and also plays CDs. Not that you would want to "wear out" your expensive BluRay player playing CDs, when you can get a $10 CD/DVD player for that task :)

For exactly that amount you can get a Samsung 2.1 soundbar, a popular item it seems among some A/V fans.
