Best of Camera Deals at Best Buy

As we dive into the new Sunday paper, we undigg the Best-Buy circular ad for the next four days, and spotlight some of the most interesting camera offerings.

DSLR offerings
Nikon is having a little bit of a discount week to celebrate Thanksgiving, and even brick and mortar is participating. You can have the D60 with the standard kit lens for $575. Not a bad price. And if you want to add the 55-200mm lens with a bonus DVD set and Nikon-branded SLR bag, you only pay an extra $150. So for $725 you get the Nikon D60, two lenses, two educational DVDs, and an SLR bag. Not bad for a starting system.

Neither Ashton Kutcher, nor his undies (ref: TV ad) are included with this promotion ;-)

Compact Temptations?
If you are looking to make a starter camera gift for the casual photographer, the Kodak M1033, in fashionable red, is bundled with an extra battery and a leather case for $150. Not bad at all. All you need is add a 2gb or 4gb SDHC memory card, and you have a digital camera starter kit. An affordable yet practical holiday season gift.

A similar bundle, but instead centered around the Coolpix S550 is offered for $170. This is a 10-megapixel camera with a 5x optical zoom lens, but note that it does not start at wide angle.

And one last deal worthy of a mention because it touches the magical mystical threshold of $100, the blue Fuji J12 with a bonus 1gb SD memory card is yours for $100. This is obviously an entry-level digital camera, and could be a good gift for an absolute beginner who typically loses or breaks things within a few weeks or months :-)
