YOUR TAKE: "Most exciting prosumer DSLR" (submitted by sanjeeymohan)
Circuit City has the Sony A200 body with 18-70mm zoom lens, a 75-300mm zoom lens and accessory kit with a carrying case and spare battery for $649.97. Circuit City has the retail value of the entire package at $929.97 saving you $280.
Don't need the extra lens and kit? Circuit City has the A200 with only the 18-70mm zoom lens for $499.99.
OUR TAKE: "If you're looking to move into a DSLR and aren't wedded to any particular brand, there's a lot to like in the simplest Sony." (DCR Review, 6/13/08)
Every brand seems to have one camera on sale this week; here are five of the top digital camera deals this week.
Office Depot has the Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS for $219.99 after a $30 rebate. It was the cheapest price I found for the SD1100 IS among the Big Box stores this week, although I did find it for $206.79 at Buydig. Features include: 8.0 Megapixels, 4x optical zoom, Optical image stabilizer and 2.5" LCD screen.
OUR TAKE: "...the Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS is a very capable device that will more than adequately serve the needs of its target audience." (DCR Review, 3/25/08)
Circuit City has the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S730 for $129.99. It's not the best price I found (Buydig has it for $114.95), but you get a free SanDisk 1GB Memory Stick PRO Duo with purchase. Features include: 7.2 megapixels, 3x optical zoom, 2.4" LCD screen, 5-point auto focus and 22MB internal memory.
Circuit City has the Canon PowerShot A590 IS and a 32MB MMC Plus memory card for $159.99 after a $20 price drop. Also, get a free Sandisk 2GB SD card with your purchase. Features include: 8.0 megapixels, 4x optical zoom, 2.5" LCD screen and a 32MB MMC Plus memory card.
OUR TAKE: "To sum the A590 up in a single sentence, as a basic, compact picture taking tool it simply doesn't get much more solid and consistent than this." (DCR Review, 2/21/08)
YOUR TAKE: "For a beginner this camera is definitely the way to go – easy but you can still be creative." (submitted by Dion)
Best Buy has the Fujifilm FinePix Z20fd for $159.99. I did find it cheaper online (Buydig $152) but it is available today. Features include: 10.0-megapixels, 3x Fujinon optical zoom lens, 2.5" TFT-LCD monitor with image rotate and antiglare coating.
OUR TAKE: "...the Z20fd may still not be the best image capture tool out there, but it has the potential to continue to be a whole lot of fun for the money." (DCR Review, forthcoming)
Best Buy has the Olympus FE-340 for $179.99 after a $20 price drop. Features include: 8.0 megapixels, 5x optical zoom, 2.7" LCD with backlight boost button and TruePic III image processor.
OUR TAKE: "If you are looking for a well built, slim, entry-level camera that's easy to use, the FE-340 makes a good choice." (DCR Review, 4/7/08)
YOUR TAKE: "All-in-all, best features for the price, of any compact digital." (submitted by Wesley)
