Noisy Shopper: The Weekend edition

Welcome to the weekend edition of the Noisy Shopper! If you don't want to "scratch" your credit cards, stop reading this post, and jump into the new Noisy Newsroom for all new news!

We start with an EOS temptation, the good people at OneCall are offering the Canon EOS 40D with the EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens, for $1300 and free 3-day FedEx shipping.

For long lists of reviews on the Canon 40D, and other recent DSLRs as well, be sure to visit the DSLR Review Matrix Cluster. On average there are about 20 reviews listed for the generally-available DSLRs. We should really call it DSLR & Friends since the Leica M8 is also listed :)

If you are looking for a computer companion for your cameras, be sure to check the various Dell XPS Spring Savings Event Deal of the Day, with new items featured on each day. And a nicely featured laptop, with 3gb of memory, 250gb hard disk, and T2370 dual core goes for $650 (before taxes and S&H), the Dell Inspiron 1525. This special price expires on March 31st.

If you love the cutesy Casio compact cameras, and love your money too, you can reconcile the two with the silver Casio EX-Z77 Exilim for $135 via J&R World. The Z77 is a 7mp 1/2.5" camera, with a 3x optical zoom lens, LiIon, and SD/MMC. And the usual assortment of Casio features.

If you do not object to the xD memory card, then you may be interested (or not) in Olympus Stylus 840 Black for $218 with free 3-day FedEx via OneCall.com.

If you are one of our ten lucky readers, look under your chair!!! There is a brand new Canon 1Ds Mark III with three Canon "L" lenses under your chair waiting for you!


Adorama Temptations!
Adorama has a wave of specials for your shopping attention :) These are only good for the week, so don't over-think them if you are interested ;-)

We start with the silver Panasonic FZ50 offered for $430. The Fz50 is starting to get harder to find, so if you don't object to the silver color, don't wait for ever :) A long list of FZ50 reviews is listed in our SuperZoom Review Matrix, which is a work in progress at the moment :)

If you are a Mac user, and are looking for a brand new Adobe Photoshop CS3, Adorama offers it for $600. This is the full version for Macs and requires PowerPC G4 or G5 or multicore Intel processor. You may have seen the recent story at Epic Edits, 60% of Photoshop users are pirates! Pirates of the Photoshoppean? :)

If you are a fan of Ducati, and need to showcase your Ducati love with your ...memory cards, you can get the SanDisk 4 GB Extreme Ducati Edition CompactFlash card for $85 after a $30 mail-in rebate. Please keep in mind that the best way to take advantage of rebates is to 1) follow the instructions 2) keep a copy of everything you send 3) keep track of your submission. If not, rebates can be a major exercise in frustration.

Is Lomography back again? You can jump on the bandwagon for just $35 with the Lomo FishEye Point-n-Shoot 35mm Camera. This of course is not a digital camera as you can tell from the price :) It has a 170 degree field of vision and has a focal length of about 10mm according to the product page.
