Good morning readers! If you are reading this, you clearly made it through New Years Eve without too much damage. I’ll post quietly just in case your head isn’t quite with us yet. First of all, a very happy New Year to you all!
My daily deal for today is for an 8GB SD memory card from Newegg. 8GB is enough for about 3000 photos on most cameras, and the card is suitable for high speed transfers, which is perfect if your camera can shoot HD video.
The card is on sale for just $12.49, and ships for free. Memory cards are the one thing that did not go up (and down again) in price in 2008, and the price of these 8GB cards has plummeted in the past 12 months. My guess is that this spot next year will be advertising cheap 32GB cards.
Before you click “purchase”, please be sure to check whether your camera (or other device) is compatible with the new SDHC format. Virtually all cameras made in 2008 will be fine, but it pays to be sure, as not everything will be capable of working with this card.
Did Santa bring what you asked for this year? If not, and you ended up with a reindeer sweater and a gift card to a bankrupt store, then this deal from Bestbuy might be just what the doctor ordered.
The Kodak Easyshare C813 digital camera has a 3X optical zoom, and takes photos in 8 Megapixels. The camera runs off ordinary AA batteries.
As is often the case nowadays, the great price is only available when you buy the camera in pink. Apparently manufacturers make a lot of pink cameras, but fail to realize that not everyone wants to be seen walking down the street with such a bright color.
Included in the box is the camera itself, a USB cable, AA batteries, a wrist strap and a camera insert for Kodak photo printers/docks. There is no memory card in the box, but the camera does come with 10MB of internal memory, enough for about 3 photos, so be sure to purchase a memory card!
To make the deal even hotter, Bestbuy will throw in a free 2GB USB flash drive and the camera is eligable for their $20 bag/card promotion, where you can buy a camera bag and a 4GB SD card for just $20.
The camera is available online and can be ordered for instore pickup at your local Bestbuy.
You’d better not still be in the middle of your Christmas shopping! If you are, then I suggest getting dressed and braving the crowds of fellow procrastinators. My daily deal for today is for the Canon PowerShot A470 digital camera.
This 7.1 Megapixel camera features a 3.4x optical zoom, and runs off regular AA batteries. The A470 is a pretty basic camera, and you won’t find any of the more upscale bells and whistles on it. But it is still a Canon, and Canon is one of those brands you can’t really go wrong with. Despite the low price, Canon still managed to add face and smile detection, as well as video recording.
The A470 normally retails for about $120, but Newegg.com has it on sale for just 89.99. Included in the package is the camera, 2 AA batteries, USB and video cables as well as a wrist strap. You also get a CD with some Canon software.
If you are looking for a basic camera, or something you can hand to the kids without fear of them damaging an expensive camera, then the A470 is a great choice. At this price, you can’t really find many other A-name brands without going for a refurbished device, or something from a pawn shop.
A very good morning to you! I’m posting my Gadling daily deal a little earlier today because at 8am (PDT), Newegg will start selling their “shell shocker” deal. This deal is for an 8GB SDHC memory card.
The card usually retails for around $20, but for just one day, and until they run out of inventory, it will be on sale for just $9.99. Newegg even pays for the shipping. The card is “class 6”, which means it is the fastest generation SD card on the market, making it perfect for a digital camera.
Make no mistake, this deal will sell out quite quickly, so don’t wait too long to order it. The deal can be found here, but until 8am PDT, you’ll be redirected to a page telling you to be patient!
A quick word of warning; SDHC cards are not regular SD cards, and your camera or other device will have to support the SDHC standard. If you purchased your camera in the past year, then you’ll probably be ok, but please check your user manual before placing an order for a card that might not work.
