Pink Casio EX-Z9 for $107

If you love stylish looking pink digital cameras and you don't want to break the piggy-bank just to get one, then you might be interested in the pink Casio Ex-Z9 offered by J&R World on Amazon for $100 plus $9 shipping and handling. Not bad eh?

This is a slightly older camera however, yet, for the price and the market segment, this is not necesarily a bad thing. It has eight megapixels which seems to be about right for what it is supposed to do. Do you really need 12-megapixels for a basic carry-around point and shoot camera? What are you going to do with the pictures? If you are planning to make big prints, you would need a more advanced digital camera to begin with!

Just don't fall into the trap of megapixel-horsepower madness!

Affordable monopod: Opteka MP100 for $20

If you are looking for an affordable, or even dispoable monopod for photography or video, then you might be interested in the Opteka MP100 monopod for $13 plus $7 shipping and handling from 47th Street Photo on Amazon.com. Obviously you can't expect this to behave like those sleek import super-lightweight yet super-sturdy design monopod that costs many many times as much!

Nice kit: Black Panasonic G1 with lens for $670

Samsung S73 shipped for $87

If you would like an older 7-megapixel digital camera with a AA-based battery and typical features (3x optical zoom, SD cards, etc), then you might be interested in the black Samsung S73/S730, sold & shipped by Amazon itself for the price of $86.48. Not sure why they didn't round-up or round-down the price, but $86 is not a bad price. Of course the $100 camera segment has become quite popular the last few months, a combination of the economic situation but also the waves and waves of digital camera models and the wild competition between the manufactuers but also competition from cameraphones and other gadgets.

Fuji S9000 shipped for $369

Beach Camera on Amazon is offering the Fuji S9000 for $369 and with free shipping. This is Fuji's older superzoom prosumer digital camera with a 1/1.6" sensor with a modest nine megapixels and a 10.7x optical zoom lens, which has the 35mm equivalent focal range of 28mm to 300mm, which covers wide angle and at the same time has some telephoto range.

Olympus E420 with 25mm pancake shipped for under $530

A great DSLR starter kit into Four Thirds, or a great DSLR kit for those who want a really small DSLR with a pancake lens is the Olympus E420 with the 25mm pancake lens offered by Amazon for $527 and with free shipping and handling. This is not bad! Please note that because this is a Four Thirds lens, the 35mm-equivalent of the lens is that of 50mm (multiply by two for 4/3rds), so essentially you are getting a "normal pancake". If that makes sense :-)

As you can see from the picture below, both the lens and the camera have a small footprint! One minus is that this camera does not have sensor-shift stabilization, so please keep that in mind as well.

Olympus FE20 shipped for $90
