Noisy Shopper: Adobe Lightroom, Sony A700, and more

The weekend edition of the Noisy Shopper is here! We are using a lightning round format. One paragraph per item!

Adorama is offering Adobe Lightroom 1 for Windows and Mac on sale for $256. As you probably know, there is a new version coming, which in typical high-tech fashion causes the previous model to be discounted.

The Sony A200 with the 18-70 DT lens is temporarily down to $600. Details here.

Meanwhile, the good people at OneCall have another temptation for Sony-Minolta fans: Sony DSLR-A700P w/ DT 16-105mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens for $1680 with free 3-day Fed-Ex shipping.

Now jumping at the other end of the spectrum, the Casio Exilim EX-Z75 Silver is just $133 with free 3-day FedEx by This is not bad for a general purpose throw-around camera. If nothing else, you can save it as an emergency gift if you forget someone's birthday or special occasioni ;-)

Sony may have lost this round of the "fun zoom wars" to the TZ3 and the SX100-IS, but the Cybershot H3 has its fans, who may be interested in it at $248 with free 3-day FedEx, also at OneCall.

Meanwhile for a "throw-away" camera, the Samsung S630 is $80 via J&R at Amazon.
