Save big on an interchangeable-lens camera by purchasing a previous model of the Panasonic Lumix DMC - in this case the G1. This camera has 12.1 megapixels and comes with a Vario 14-45 mm lens. This camera got a great review from DPreview.com, and if you don't want to get the old generation camera, check out the DMC-G2.

Treating yourself to a compact digital camera with 12.2 megapixels and 3x optical zoom and a 2.7" LCD screen, like the Kodak EasyShare M341, is always a good idea. It's an even better idea right now, when you can pick it up for under $100, which is over sixty bucks off the list price. This deal is only available for a limited time, so if you want it you'd better jump on it.
Now you can stop thinking about camera settings and start shooting. Kodak's innovative Smart Capture feature takes care of the little things you don't want to deal with, so you can take beautiful pictures--automatically. Smart Capture controls focus, flash, exposure--it even locates faces. All in a colorful, contemporary design that's surprisingly small. Just like the price.

Just add the Flip UltraHD of your choice to your shopping cart along with the gift card, and the gift card's price will change to free.

Today's the day my nerdy friends are coming to town, and we're going to drink beer, play board games and drink beer all weekend. In that spirit, today's flickr Friday shows Twilight Imperium game pieces in action, much as they will be during this weekend's Nerdening. The picture was taken by GameThyme with a Pentax Optio M40.
