Daily Deal – Kodak 12 Megapixel digital camera with HD video

My deal of the day for today is for the Kodak Z1275 digital camera.

This fantastic little point and shoot camera takes photos in a whopping 12 megapixels, and even has the ability to shoot HD video! The lens provides an impressive 5x optical zoom as well as a 5x digital zoom option.

The camera is refurbished by Kodak, which means it was once returned to them, but has been returned to its brand new condition. Kodak provides a 1 year warranty on the camera.

This camera retails for almost $180 on Amazon.com but is on sale today for just $79.99 through Woot.com. Shipping is $5, but like with all Woot deals, it is only on sale for one day, and when they sell out, the deal is gone so don’t delay if you are interested in purchasing one.

Included in the package is the camera, 2 AA batteries, a wrist strap, a USB cable and a special adapter which allows the camera to be “docked” on most Kodak photo printers.

No memory card is included in this deal, but the camera does come with 64MB of internal memory, which should be enough for about 10 photos in full resolution. To expand the memory of the Z1275, you’ll need to invest a little more for a memory card. The camera takes the SD (secure digital) format which means you’ll be able to find cheap cards everywhere. 4GB SD memory cards can be found for as little as $20 at your local electronics store.

This camera is great for any beginner as well as people looking for a more advanced digtial camera. The HD video option is great for taking short vacation video clips, and the ability to power the device off regular AA batteries means you should never find yourself without enough juice to shoot that perfect moment.
