My daily deal for today may be a little out of the realm of the “stocking stuff” budget, but it is still a fantastic deal.
The Panasonic Lumix FS3 is an 8 Megapixel camera, with a 3x optical zoom. The lens is made by Leica and features optical image stabilization.
The FS3 has 50MB of internal memory, and can be expanded by adding SD memory cards, which you will have to purchase separately. The FS3 also supports the new larger SDHC cards, allowing you to add cards larger than 2GB.
Inside the camera, you’ll find scene settings for anything from beach shots to snow scenery. The unit runs off a lithium-ion rechargeable battery pack, which is rated for 330 photos per full charge.
The camera comes with a USB cable, video cable, battery charger and of course the unit itself with a battery pack.
The Panasonic Lumix FS3 usually retails for about $170, but if you can settle for a pleasant shade of green, you’ll be able to order one for just $99.95, with free shipping from Amazon.
